How To Choose a Pest Control Company

When picking a pest control company, you want to make sure that you find the right one to meet your needs. Some things you may consider include qualifications and licensing, pest intervention strategies, years of experience, customer reviews, and cost.

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

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

All pesticide applicators, as well as those that supervise them, need to be licensed via the appropriate Washington regulatory agencies. The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) sets minimum standards of competency, but issuing, maintaining, and revoking licensure is handled at the state level.

Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

Pest control companies can earn the GreenPro Service Certification, which requires a company to show that its practices are more eco-friendly and that its employees receive up-to-date training. Trade organizations such as QualityPro offer other certifications. These are not required, but can help show that a company is reputable.

There are various professional organizations in which pest control companies can hold membership. Becoming a member of an organization such as the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) or a state-level organization grants a pest control company access to resources and education, plus a network of professionals with whom to compare best practices. Belonging to one of these organizations is not mandatory, but it can help indicate that a company follows industry best practices.

Professional Experience and Specialties

Generally, a company provides information like years of experience and specialities on its website. Online reviews can also tell you whether a company has experience dealing with a specific pest. If you're unable to find the information you need online, you can call the company directly to get the answers to your questions.

Reviews and Recommendations

Resources you can use to check a company's reputation include the Better Business Bureau (BBB), local review sites, and social media. You can also check the status of a company's license through the Washington licensing board.

Cost of Services and Guarantees

For many people, cost is one of the main deciding factors when picking a company for pest control services. Cost can be influenced by factors like your location, the size of your house, and the type of pest being treated.

You can take into consideration whether a particular company offers free on-site estimates (to determine if it fits your budget), and what sort of guarantees it provides. Often, a company will guarantee that if your pest problem isn't fixed by its treatment, it will continue to treat until it is.

Safety and Treatment Methods

Your choice of pest control provider might be influenced by how environmentally friendly a company's practicesare, in addition to how safe its methods are around your family and pets.

Safety

Your pest control expert should use low toxicity or non-toxic pesticides any time they can. If any pesticides they intend to use don't fit into one of these categories, your technician should explain what safety precautions they plan to use to protect your family, your pets, and you. Any pesticides that pose more than a minimum risk should be registered with the EPA.

Treatment Methods

Pest professionals 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 assess whether immediate action is required.
  2. Decide on the safest course of action.
  3. Use a combination of mechanical, physical, biological, and cultural controls to manage the pest problem.
  4. Use chemical controls only when required, and always with other techniques for effective long-term pest management.
  5. Assess the outcome and provide additional pest control as needed.

Common Household Pests in Spanaway

Not all pests are equally common in Spanaway. Some species that you should keep an eye out for include the following:

  • Ants: Whether smaller soil ants or larger carpenter ants, these bugs are found in most parts of Washington. Carpenter ants can cause more problems than their smaller counterparts by causing damage to your house.
  • Bed bugs: Infestations of bed bugs are often very difficult to quash, 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 your wallpaper.
  • Mice: Some telltale signs of mouse activity include chewed wires and droppings around your house. Mice are commonly found in attics or in places where you keep food.
