How To Choose a Pest Control Company

The first step is picking the right pest control professional for the job. You may take into consideration a company's qualifications, methods, years of experience, customer reviews, and cost of services.

Below, we explore the details of each factor.

  • 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 Wisconsin regulatory agencies. The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has established minimum standards of competency, while issuing, maintaining, and revoking licensure is handled at the state level.

  • Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

    A pest control company can receive optional certifications from QualityPro or similar trade organizations to verify its standards and methods. 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.

    A pest control company can also belong to certain professional organizations. When a company obtains membership in an organization such as the National Pest Management Association(NPMA) (or a state-level organization), it gets access to resources, education, and a network of other pest control experts with whom to compare methods. This can offer additional peace of mind that a company follows industry best practices.

Professional Experience and Specialties

How long a pest control company has been in business can give you some insight into its experience dealing with various pests. Customer reviews or the company's own website can also help you figure out whether it has the experience needed to eliminate the particular pests that are plaguing you. If the answers to your questions aren't available online, calling a representative is a great way to learn about the company's areas of expertise.

  • Reviews and Recommendations

    You can look for reviews and recommendations on social media or local review sites, verify a company's Better Business Bureau (BBB) rating, or check the status of its license through the Wisconsin licensing board.

  • Cost of Services and Guarantees

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

    You can look into whether a company offers free on-site estimates (to determine if it fits in your budget), and what sort of guarantees are provided. 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 preferences regarding safety for yourself, your children, your pets, and the environment can influence which provider and treatment methods you choose.

  • Safety

    Ask your pest control provider 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 poses greater than minimum risk should be registered with the EPA. Your pest control company should be able to provide information about all of the pesticides that will be used in your home, as well as how safe they are around people and pets.

  • Treatment Methods

    Many companies are using options for more environmentally friendly solutions before employing harsh pesticides.

    One common method for making pest control safer and more eco-friendly is Integrated Pest Management (IPM). The steps of IPM are as follows:

    1. Figure out what pests are causing the problem and assess whether immediate action is needed.
    2. Decide on the safest course of action.
    3. Use a combination of biological, cultural, mechanical, and physical controls to manage the pest problem.
    4. Use chemical controls only if needed, and always along with other controls for effective long-term pest management.
    5. Observe the results and implement additional pest control as needed.

Common Household Pests in Greenfield

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

  • Wasps: Wasps can be very difficult to get rid of, especially when you're trying to avoid their stingers. They can often be found in places like attics, sheds, roof overhangs, and garages.
  • Mice: Some telltale signs of mice include chewed wires and droppings around your house. Mice are commonly found in attics or in areas where food is kept.
  • Bed bugs: Bed bug infestations can be very hard to eliminate, so we recommend hiring an exterminator as soon as possible. Bed bugs can be found throughout Wisconsin, and can infest not only your bedsheets, but also other furniture and even wallpaper.
  • Spiders: You may find spiders in your attic or other damp, dark areas. Even though most species of spider are harmless to humans, you don't want a spider infestation in your home.

Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control in Greenfield

What are some causes of pest infestations?

Pests enter your home looking for one of three things: food, water, or shelter. Some pests will enter your home simply because they have the opportunity to do so, through a broken screen or foundation crack. Some are drawn by food, either actual food left out or trash sitting out in the open. Others are searching for water, either standing water outside or puddles inside from things like leaky pipes.

How can I prevent pest infestations?

There are a number of things you can do to help prevent pest infestations. First, avoid leaving food out. Make sure food is stored in sealed containers, and don't leave trash sitting around.

Next, avoid having standing water in or around your house. Fix leaks inside and eliminate places where standing water collects outside. Finally, seal off any possible pest entrances into your house, including siding or foundation cracks.

How do I know when to hire an exterminator?

You should consider hiring a pest control professional any time you see signs of pests in your Greenfield home. These signs can include droppings, nests, damage caused by pests, or even the pests themselves. If you get seasonal or recurrent pest infestations, we recommend setting up annual preventive pest management.

What is the importance of preventive pest control?

Preventive pest control is important for stopping pest problems before they begin. Local pest control companies know about the pests that live in your part of Greenfield, including how they make their way into your home and the times of the year during which they are most active. Your technician can make changes and implement barriers to keep pests out of your house, which can save time and money that might otherwise go towards future pest control visits—or towards the damage and illness caused by pests.

Do pests come out after a technician sprays for them?

You might think you're seeing more pests in your home in the days after pest control treatment. This is because living pests are being flushed out of their hiding places deep in your home, or you may be seeing more dead pests. If the amount of pest activity hasn't begun to decrease in a week or two following treatment, get in touch with your Greenfield pest control professional to see if another treatment is required.
