How To Choose a Pest Control Company

When hiring a pest control company, you want to be sure to find the best one to meet your needs. You may take into consideration a company's qualifications, methods, years of experience, customer reviews, and cost of services.

Below, we discuss each factor in more detail.

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

    While the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has established minimum standards of competency for pesticide application, licensing is taken care of at the state level. All pesticide applicators (and their supervisors) in Washington need to be licensed by all the necessary state regulatory agencies.

  • Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

    A pest control company can optionally apply for certifications from QualityPro or similar trade organizations to back up its methods and standards. One particular certification is the GreenPro Service Certification, which is awarded to any company that can demonstrate that its methods are more eco-friendly. Companies that receive this certification also need to maintain certain employee training standards.

    Pest control companies can also belong to certain professional organizations. When a company obtains membership in an organization like the National Pest Management Association(NPMA) (or a state-level organization), it receives access to resources, education, and a network of other pest control experts with whom to compare treatment methods. This can give you added peace of mind that a company is following industry best practices.

Professional Experience and Specialties

You can look at a pest control company's years in business to help determine how much experience it has dealing with common pests in Lynnwood. You can also explore its website or peruse customer reviews to decide whether it has the right kind of experience handling the type of pests you are dealing with. If this information is not available online, speaking with a company representative is a good way to learn more.

  • Reviews and Recommendations

    You can view a company's reviews and rating on the Better Business Bureau (BBB), check out local review sites and social media to see what homeowners near you think, or verify its license standing through the Washington licensing board.

  • Cost of Services and Guarantees

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

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

Safety and Treatment Methods

It's important to consider safety when choosing a pest control company. You might also prefer a provider who uses more natural, environmentally friendly treatment methods.

  • Safety

    You can ask your pest control technician if they plan on using low toxicity or non-toxic pesticides—if not, ask about what precautionary measures they plan to use. Any pesticide that has been deemed above minimum risk should be registered with the EPA. Your pest control company should supply information about all of the pesticides that will be used in your home, and how safe they are around people and pets.

  • Treatment Methods

    Many companies are now exploring greener and cleaner pest control solutions that can be used before (or in place of) chemical pesticides. Many follow the practice of Integrated Pest Management (IPM), which goes as follows:

    1. Identify problem pests and determine whether immediate action is needed.
    2. Determine the best and safest course of action.
    3. Manage the pest problem using a combination of mechanical, physical, biological, and cultural controls.
    4. Use chemical controls only when absolutely necessary, and always in combination with other methods for effective long-term pest management.
    5. Evaluate outcomes and provide additional pest control as needed.

Common Household Pests in Lynnwood

In Lynnwood, some species of pests are more common than others. This list includes the following:

  • Ticks: If you live near forests or areas with dense vegetation, or close to a body of water, you might be at greater risk of a tick infestation. Ticks can spread diseases like Lyme to you or your pets.
  • Ants: Ants can be found in basically all of Washington. Large carpenter ants can be an even bigger problem than normal soil ants, because they can cause structural damage to your home.
  • Spiders: These pests prefer dark and damp places and are often found in basements or attics.
  • Mice: Common signs of mice include chewed wires and droppings around your house. Mice are often found in attics or in areas where food is stored.
  • Bed bugs: Infestations of bed bugs are often very hard to eliminate, so we recommend hiring an exterminator as soon as possible. Bed bugs can be found throughout Washington, and can infest not only your bedsheets, but also other furniture and even wallpaper.

Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control in Lynnwood

What are some causes of pest infestations?

Pest infestations occur when pests enter your home looking for something, normally food, water, or shelter. Pests may be looking to eat food or trash that is left out. Some could also be drawn by standing water collecting outside (from rain collecting in one area) or inside (from leaky pipes). Pests may also enter your house looking for shelter. They can get in through weak spots such as foundation cracks or broken screens.

How can I prevent pest infestations?

One method for preventing pest infestations is to seal off possible entrances into your home. This includes things like cracks in your siding or foundation. Also try to avoid leaving out food for pests. This includes keeping food in sealed containers and not leaving trash out. Lastly, reduce standing water in and around your home. Find ways to reduce places where water collects outside, and repair leaks inside.

When should I hire an exterminator?

When you notice signs of pest activity in your Lynnwood home—which could include droppings, nests, signs of damage, or the pests themselves—you should call your local pest professional. If your home has had recurrent or seasonal pest infestations, we suggest getting in touch with a local pest control company to request annual pest management services.

How long does exterminator spray last?

Most pesticides last about 30 to 90 days after application. Chemicals applied outdoors may not last as long as those applied indoors due to precipitation. Other factors that affect how long pesticide application lasts include what chemicals are used, the method of applying them, what pests are present, and the extent of your pest problem.
