How To Choose a Pest Control Company

The most important step is selecting the right pest control company for the job. You might take into consideration a pest control company's qualifications and methods of treatment in addition to its years of experience and customer reviews. Of course, there is also the cost of services to consider.

Below, we dive into detail on each of these factors.

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 those that supervise them must be certified at the state level. The EPA sets minimum standards of competency, but all pesticide applicators in Washington need to be licensed through the proper state regulatory agencies.

Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

A pest control company can obtain optional certifications from trade organizations like QualityPro in order to support its standards and methods. One particular certification is the GreenPro Service Certification, which is granted when a company 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 become members of certain professional organizations. A pest control company can join both state-level organizations and national organizations such as the National Pest Management Association (NPMA). While not mandatory, membership in these organizations helps prove a company's reputability and gives it access to resources, education, and a network of other professionals to compare best practices with.

Professional Experience and Specialties

The number of years that a company has been in business can give you some insight into its experience dealing with pests in your area. Online reviews or the company's website itself can also inform you whether it has the skills and experience necessary to deal with your particular pests. If you can't find the information you need online, reaching out to the company directly is an excellent way to learn more.

Reviews and Recommendations

You can check a company's rating on the Better Business Bureau (BBB), browse reviews on social media or local review sites, or check the standing of its license via the Washington licensing board.

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 influence the price of pest control.

You can find out whether a company offers free on-site estimates (to determine if it fits in your budget), as well as what type of guarantees it provides. Often, a company will guarantee that if it does not eliminate your pest problem, it will keep coming back until it does.

Safety and Treatment Methods

Keeping yourself, your family and your pets safe is an important consideration when choosing a pest control provider. You might also prefer one that uses eco-friendly treatment methods.

Safety

Ask your pest control technician if they plan to use low toxicity or non-toxic pesticides, and if not, what sort of precautionary measures they are going to use. Any pesticides that are not minimum-risk chemicals must be registered with the EPA. Your pest control provider will be able to supply you with information about all pesticides that they are going to use.

Treatment Methods

Pest control experts looking to reduce their reliance on chemical pesticides often follow practices such as Integrated Pest Management (IPM). Using IPM involves a series of steps:

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

Common Household Pests in Olympia

Certain pests are more common than others. In Olympia, common pests to be watchful for include the following:

  • Ants: Whether they are larger carpenter ants or smaller soils ants, these pests are found in most areas of Washington. Carpenter ants can pose a more urgent issue than their smaller counterparts because they can do damage to your house.
  • Cockroaches: You can find cockroaches throughout Washington, though they prefer wetter areas. This can make them an even bigger problem in Olympia. Cockroaches might get into your house through small cracks, and they can carry diseases like salmonella.
  • Fleas: These pests prefer warmer weather and often get indoors by hiding in pet fur.
  • Spiders: You may find spiders in your basement, attic, or other dark, damp areas. Most spiders are harmless and pose no threat to humans, but you still don't want an infestation of them in your house.
  • Mice: If there are mice in your home, you might notice droppings around your house, or things like chewed wires. You can often find mice in attics or in places where food is stored.
