      How To Choose a Pest Control Company

      When choosing a pest control company, you want to make sure that you find the best one to meet your needs. You might consider a company's qualifications, treatment methods, years of experience, customer reviews, and service prices.

      Below, we discuss each factor in more detail.

      • 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 their supervisors need to be certified at the state level. The EPA does set minimum standards of competency, but all pesticide applicators in Wyoming must be licensed through the proper state regulatory agencies.

      • Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

        One optional certification that may be worth looking for is the GreenPro Service Certification. To earn this certification, a pest control company must both show that its practices are more eco-friendly and maintain certain technician training standards. Companies can also earn other certifications from trade organizations like QualityPro to further support their work.

        Pest control professionals can also obtain membership in professional organizations. Joining 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, and a professional network to compare best practices with. Joining one of these organizations is not mandatory, but it can help show that a company follows industry best practices.

      Professional Experience and Specialties

      You can get some insight into a company's experience level by seeing how long it has been in business. Local reviews and the company's own website can also inform you whether a certain company has the experience needed to deal with the specific species of pests invading your home. You can contact a representative directly to learn this information if you can't find it online.

      • Reviews and Recommendations

        You can look up 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 Wyoming licensing board.

      • Cost of Services and Guarantees

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

        You can look into whether a company provides free on-site estimates (to determine if it fits in your budget) and what kind 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

      When it comes to picking a pest control provider, you want to choose a company that will help keep you, your family, and your pets safe. You'll likely also prefer an eco-friendly provider.

      • Safety

        Your pest control technician should be able to explain the safety precautions of any pesticides that will be used in your home. They should be able to clarify whether the pesticides are low toxicity or non-toxic; if they are not, they should explain what safety precautions they plan to use to protect your family, your pets, and you. All pesticides that pose more than a minimum risk must be registered with the EPA.

      • Treatment Methods

        Many pest control companies have begun using more natural and eco-friendly treatment methods before, or instead of, harsh chemical pesticides. Some utilize a program called Integrated Pest Management (IPM). The steps of IPM are as follows:

        1. Identify problem pests and determine if immediate action is required.
        2. Determine the best and 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 with other methods for effective long-term pest management.
        5. Assess the outcome and continue with additional pest control as needed.

      Common Household Pests in Cheyenne

      Not all pests are equally prevalent around Cheyenne. Some species that you should be on the lookout for are these:

      • Mosquitoes: A mosquito infestation is more likely if you live in a wetter area. They're also more common when the weather is warmer. Mosquitoes are more than just annoying—they can cause itchy bites and even spread diseases.
      • Wasps: Wasps are commonly found in places like garages, sheds, roof overhangs, and attics. They have painful stings and are often difficult to eliminate. Your local pest professional can help remove wasp nests from your property safely.
      • Ticks: If your home is near a forest or an area of dense vegetation, or close to a body of water, you may be at greater risk of a tick infestation. Ticks can spread Lyme or other diseases to you or your pets.
      • Bed bugs: Bed bugs can be found throughout Wyoming and can lead to serious problems if left untreated. Because infestations of bed bugs can be hard to get rid of, we recommend getting professional extermination as soon as you discover the problem. Bed bugs can infest wallpaper, furniture, bedsheets, and more.
      • Spiders: Spiders usually prefer dark and moist places and are commonly found in basements or attics.

      Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control in Cheyenne

      What are some causes of pest infestations?

      Pests make their way into 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 foundation crack or broken screen. 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 outside or puddles inside from things like leaky pipes.

      How can I prevent pest infestations?

      One thing you can do to prevent pest infestations is seal off possible entrances into your home. These include things like cracks in your foundation or siding. Also try to avoid leaving out food for pests. This includes keeping food in sealed containers and not leaving trash out. Lastly, get rid of standing water in and around your house. Try to reduce places where water collects outside, and fix leaks inside.

      How do I know when to hire a pest control professional?

      You should consider hiring an exterminator any time you see signs of pests in your Cheyenne home. This could include nests, droppings, damage caused by pests, or even the pests themselves. If you've had recurrent or seasonal pest infestations, we recommend setting up annual preventive pest management.

      How long does it take for pest control to work?

      How long it takes pest control to work depends on the problem and treatment. For example, if a wasp nest is removed, the problem should be resolved immediately. In other cases, it may take anywhere from a few days to up to six weeks for significant results from pest control to become apparent. Some pest problems may require your technician to make multiple trips to your house.
