How To Choose a Pest Control Company

When choosing a pest control company, you want to make sure that you find the right one for you. Factors you might consider include qualifications and licensing, treatment methods, years of experience, customer reviews, and cost.

Below, we discuss each of these factors 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 competency standards for pesticide applicators, 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?

    An optional certification that might be worth looking for is the GreenPro Service Certification. To get this certification, a pest control company must both show that its practices are more environmentally friendly and uphold certain technician training standards. Companies can obtain other certifications from trade organizations like QualityPro to further support their work.

    A pest control company can also hold membership in various professional organizations. Pest control companies can join state-level organizations in addition to national organizations like 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 professionals with whom to compare best practices.

Professional Experience and Specialties

For the most part, a company will list information like its specialities and years of experience on its website. Local reviews can also inform you as to whether a company has experience dealing with a specific pest. If you're unable to locate the information you need online, you can reach out to the company directly to get your questions answered.

  • Reviews and Recommendations

    You can view a company's rating on the Better Business Bureau (BBB), explore 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 size of your house, the type of pest being treated, your location, and other factors can all influence the price of pest control.

    You can find out whether a company provides free on-site estimates (to determine if it fits in your budget) and what sort of guarantees it offers. 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

Your preferences regarding safety for yourself, any children or pets, and the environment may affect the provider and the treatment methods you choose.

  • Safety

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

  • Treatment Methods

    Many companies will begin with more environmentally friendly options before using harsh pesticides, following a framework called Integrated Pest Management (IPM). When using IPM, the following steps are taken:

    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 physical, cultural, biological, and mechanical 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 provide additional pest control as needed.


Common Household Pests in Parkland

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

  • Flies: Flies can be a year-round nuisance in your Parkland home, but they are especially common during the warmer months. Flies might be found around sinks or in places where you keep food.
  • Mice: If your home has a mouse infestation, you might notice droppings or things like chewed wires. Frequently, mice are found in places where food is stored or in attics.
  • Bed bugs: Bed bugs can be found throughout Washington, and they can cause big problems if left untreated. Because bed bug infestations can be tricky to get rid of, we recommend having professional extermination as soon as you discover the problem. Bed bugs can infest bedsheets, furniture, wallpaper, and more.
  • Spiders: You may find spiders in your basement, attic, or other dark, damp places. Even though most species of spider are harmless to humans, you don't want an infestation of them in your house.

Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control in Parkland

What causes pest infestations?

Pests enter your house looking for one of three things: food, water, or shelter. Some pests will opportunistically enter your home via a broken screen or foundation crack. Some are attracted to food, either actual food sitting out or trash left out in the open. Others are searching for water, whether it be standing water on your property or puddles inside from things like leaky pipes.

How can I prevent pest infestations?

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

How often should I hire a pest control professional?

It is typically recommended that you hire a pest control technician about once annually. If you have an active infestation, you will need pest control to come out more frequently. Ultimately, your pest professional is the person who is best-equipped to recommend a treatment schedule for you.

How long does pest control last?

Typically, pesticide application lasts around 30 to 90 days. The exact length of time depends on what chemicals are used, which pests are being targeted, how many pests are in your area, and whether the chemicals are applied inside or outside. Chemicals applied outdoors may not last as long as those applied indoors due to precipitation.

Why is preventive pest control important?

If pests get into your home, you might find yourself spending a large amount of time and money ridding yourself of them, as well as possibly recovering from illness or damages they caused. Preventive pest control can help stop things like this from happening.
