    How To Choose a Pest Control Company

    Choosing the best pest control company for you is important. You may consider a company's qualifications, treatment methods, years of experience, customer reviews, and price of services.

    Below, we dive into detail on each factor.

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

      All pesticide applicators (and those who supervise them) are required to be certified at the state level. The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has established minimum standards of competency, but any pesticide applicators working in Ohio should be licensed via the necessary state regulatory agencies.

    • Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

      Obtaining additional optional certifications can help show that a pest control company is reputable. One of these is the GreenPro Service Certification. To receive this certification, a company must prove that its methods are more environmentally friendly and that its employee training is up to date. Additional certifications can be obtained through trade organizations like QualityPro.

      Pest control companies can also belong to certain professional organizations. Holding membership in organizations such as the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) or state-level organizations is not required, but helps show that a company is reputable. Membership in the NPMA gives companies access to education, resources, and a network of pest professionals with whom to discuss methods and practices.

    Professional Experience and Specialties

    In general, a company provides information like specialities and years of experience on its website. Local reviews can also help you determine if a company has experience dealing with a particular pest in your area. If you're unable to locate 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), social media, and local review sites. Additionally, you can check the status of a company's license through the Ohio licensing board.

    • Cost of Services and Guarantees

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

      You can look into whether a specific company offers free on-site estimates (to determine if it fits 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 choice of pest control provider might be affected by how eco-friendly a company's pest control management solutionsare, as well as how safe its methods are around your family and pets.

    • Safety

      Your pest control provider should be able to discuss the safety of any and all pesticides that will be used in your home. They should be able to explain whether the pesticides are low toxicity or non-toxic, and if not what safety precautions will be in place to protect your family, your pets, and you. All pesticides that pose greater than a minimum risk need to be registered with the EPA.

    • Treatment Methods

      Many companies have started offering options for more eco-friendly methods of pest control before employing harsh pesticides.

      One popular way of making pest control safer and greener is Integrated Pest Management (IPM). The steps of IPM are as follows:

      1. Identify the source of the pest problem and determine if immediate action is needed.
      2. Determine the best and safest course of action.
      3. Manage the pest problem using a combination of mechanical, physical, biological, and cultural controls.
      4. Use chemical controls only when absolutely necessary, and always in combination with other techniques for effective long-term pest management.
      5. Assess the outcome and provide additional pest control as needed.

    Common Household Pests in Austintown

    Certain pests are more prevalent in Austintown, and these pests are the ones you should keep an eye out for. Some of these include the following:

    • Ticks: A tick infestation can be dangerous because they might bring diseases like Lyme into your home. You might be at increased risk of a tick infestation if your home is near a forest, a body of water, or an area of dense vegetation.
    • Bed bugs: Bed bugs can be found throughout Ohio, and they can cause serious problems if left untreated. Because infestations of bed bugs are often difficult to get rid of, we recommend hiring a professional exterminator as soon as you discover the problem. Bed bugs can infest bedsheets, wallpaper, furniture, and more.
    • Mice: Telltale signs of mouse activity include chewed wires and droppings around your home. Mice tend to frequent attics or areas where food is kept.

    Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control in Austintown

    What causes 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, whether it be standing water on your property or puddles inside from leaky pipes.

    What are some steps I can take to prevent pest infestations?

    One way to prevent pest infestations is seal off potential entrances into your house. This includes things like cracks in your siding or foundation. Second, avoid leaving food out for pests. This includes keeping food in sealed containers as well as not leaving trash out. Third, get rid of standing water in and around your home. Try to reduce places where water can collect outside, and repair leaks inside.

    How do I know when to hire an exterminator?

    When you notice signs of pests in your Austintown home—which could include droppings, nests, signs of damage, or the pests themselves—you should contact your local pest professional. If you've had seasonal or recurrent pest infestations, we suggest reaching out to a local pest control company to request annual pest management services.

    What is the importance of preventive pest control?

    Preventive pest control is important because it can help stop pest problems before they start. Local pest control companies understand the behaviors of pests in your part of Austintown, including how they make their way into your home and at what times of the year they are most active. Your technician can suggest changes and put barriers in place to keep pests out of your house, which can save time and money that would otherwise be spent on future pest control visits—and on the damage and illness caused by pests.
