How to choose a pest control company in Buffalo

buffalo skyline

It’s easy to get lost amid the large number of pest control companies in Buffalo. However, there are many factors that can help narrow your options. Hiring a reputable, registered business that provides excellent customer service can be the difference between a nightmare and a pest-free home.

Here are a few things to look for when choosing the right pest control company:

  • Licensing and insurance: Pest control companies in New York must be registered with the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC). Registered companies have commercial general liability insurance. They must also have a licensed commercial pesticide applicator or technician on staff. You can verify registration and licensing on the Department of Environmental Conservation website.
  • IPM: Integrated pest management, or IPM, is a pest management process that minimizes health risks to people and the environment. Pest control companies that use IPM only use pesticides when necessary and focus on long-term prevention of pest infestations in homes and businesses.
  • Pesticide options: Any pest control company in Buffalo you’re considering needs to be willing to tell you what pesticides it uses and the amounts it uses. Some companies focus on organic pest control. Request copies of pesticides a company uses. All pesticides used in Buffalo must be registered with the Environmental Protection Agency and the NYSDEC.
  • Association accreditations: Accreditations, certifications and memberships with national and regional organizations, such as the National Pest Management Association, the EPA Pesticide Environmental Stewardship Program and the New York Pest Management Association, show a commitment to professionalism and best practices.
