How To Choose a Pest Control Company

There are several factors that you can consider when choosing the best pest control solutionfor you. You may consider a company's qualifications, treatment methods, years of experience, customer reviews, and service prices.

Below, we explore the details of each factor.

Does the company have a valid license and permits to perform pest control?

According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), all pesticide applicators and their supervisors need to be licensed at the state level. The EPA sets minimum competency standards, and the Virginia regulatory agencies handle the granting, maintaining, and revoking of licenses.

Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

One optional certification that could be worth looking for is the GreenPro Service Certification. In order to obtain this certification, a pest control company needs to both show that its practices are more eco-friendly and maintain certain technician training standards. Companies can obtain other certifications from trade organizations like QualityPro to further support their work.

Pest control companies can also become members of professional organizations. Companies can belong to the National Pest Management Association (NPMA), or state-level organizations. NPMA membership provides companies with access to resources, education, and a network of other pest professionals. While not required, membership in professional organizations helps demonstrate a company's reputability.

Professional Experience and Specialties

For the most part, a company displays information like years of experience and specialities on its website. Online reviews can also help you figure out if a company has experience dealing with a specific pest. If you can't get the information you need online, you can call the company directly to get the answers to your questions.

Reviews and Recommendations

You can verify a company's legitimacy using the Better Business Bureau (BBB) and local review sites or social media. You can also check with Virginia's licensing board to verify the status of a company's license.

Cost of Services and Guarantees

Things like the type of pest being treated, the size of your house, your location, and other factors can all affect the cost of pest control.

You can look into whether a company provides free on-site estimates (to determine if it fits in your budget), as well as what sort of guarantees it provides. Often, a company will provide a guarantee that if it does not eliminate your pest problem, it will continue treatment until it does.

Safety and Treatment Methods

When it comes to picking a pest control provider, you want to select one that will help keep you, your family, and your pets safe. You'll likely also prefer a provider that is eco-friendly.

Safety

You want to ensure that you understand the precautions for the pesticides used in your home, for the sake of you, your family, and your pets. Your pest control provider should provide information about all pesticides they intend to use, whether they are low toxicity or non-toxic, and (if not) what safety measures they have in place. All pesticides (except minimum-risk ones) must be registered with the EPA.

Treatment Methods

You can ask if your pest technician will begin with eco-friendly and lower-toxicity treatment methods before employing harsher chemicals.

Many companies are now using Integrated Pest Management (IPM) to reduce personal or environmental risk when treating pest infestations. The steps of IPM are as follows:

  1. Identify problem pests and determine whether immediate action is required.
  2. Determine the best and safest course of action.
  3. Use a combination of mechanical, cultural, biological, and physical controls to manage the pest problem.
  4. Use chemical controls only if needed, and always with other solutions for effective long-term pest management.
  5. Observe the results and continue with additional pest control as needed.

Common Household Pests in Centreville

Certain pests are more common than others. In Centreville, common pests to be wary of include the following:

  • Ants: Whether they are smaller soil ants or larger carpenter ants, these pests are found in most parts of Virginia. Carpenter ants can cause more problems than their smaller counterparts because they can do damage to your home.
  • Spiders: These pests prefer moist, dark places and are often found in basements or attics.
  • Bed bugs: Infestations of bed bugs are often very difficult to eliminate, so we strongly recommend calling a professional as soon as possible. Bed bugs are found throughout Virginia, and can infest not only your bedsheets, but also other furniture and even your wallpaper.
