How To Choose a Pest Control Company

Choosing the best pest control expert for you is key. You may consider a company's qualifications and methods of treatment in addition to its customer reviews and years of experience. And of course, there's the cost of services to consider.

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

  • Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

    Pest control companies also have the option to obtain additional certifications like the GreenPro Service Certification. This certification is awarded once a company has shown its methods to be more eco-friendly and demonstrated that it also maintains certain other standards, such as up-to-date employee training. A pest control company can also earn other certifications from QualityPro or similar trade organizations to further verify its practices and methods.

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

Professional Experience and Specialties

The amount of time that a pest control company has been in business can give you some insight into its experience dealing with pests in your area. Customer reviews or the company's website itself can also enlighten you about whether it has the skills and experience needed to deal with your particular pests. If you can't find the information you need online, speaking with a representative is a great way to learn about the company's areas of expertise.

  • Reviews and Recommendations

    You can browse reviews and recommendations on social media or local review sites, look up a company's rating on the Better Business Bureau (BBB), or check its licensure status through the Ohio licensing board.

  • Cost of Services and Guarantees

    Things like the size of your house, your location, the type of pest being treated, and other factors can all influence the price 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 sort of guarantees it provides. Often, a company will guarantee that if it does not solve your pest problem, it will keep coming back until it does.

Safety and Treatment Methods

Your preferences regarding safety for yourself, your children, your pets, and the environment can affect the provider and the treatment methods you choose.

  • Safety

    Ask your pest control provider if the chemicals they're using are low toxicity or non-toxic, and if not, what kind of precautionary measures they plan to take. Any pesticides that are not minimum-risk chemicals must be registered with the EPA. Your pest control provider should be able to provide you with information about all of the pesticides that they are going to use.

  • Treatment Methods

    Many companies are making the switch to using more natural and environmentally friendly treatment methods before (or instead of) harsh chemical pesticides. Some employ a program called Integrated Pest Management (IPM). The steps of IPM are as follows:

    1. Identify problem pests and determine if immediate action is needed.
    2. Decide on the safest course of action.
    3. Manage the pest problem using a combination of physical, cultural, biological, and mechanical controls.
    4. Employ chemical controls only when required, and always along with other controls for effective long-term pest control management.
    5. Assess the outcome and continue with additional pest control as needed.

Common Household Pests in Bath

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

  • Fleas: Fleas tend to prefer warmer weather and often get into your home by hiding in pet fur.
  • Mice: If your home has a mouse infestation, you may start noticing droppings around your house, or things like chewed wires. If your home has mice, they may be found in attics or in places where food is stored.
  • Bed bugs: Bed bugs can be found throughout Ohio, and they can cause big problems if left untreated. Because infestations of bed bugs are hard to get rid of, we recommend having professional extermination as soon as you discover the problem. Bed bugs can infest wallpaper, furniture, bedsheets, and more.

Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control in Bath

What are some causes of pest infestations?

Pests come into your house 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, via a broken screen or foundation crack. Some are drawn by food, either actual food sitting out or trash left out in the open. Others look for water, whether it be standing water outside or puddles inside from leaky pipes.

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

There are a number of steps you can take to help prevent pest infestations. First, avoid leaving food out. Keep your food stored in sealed containers, and avoid leaving trash sitting around.

Next, try not to have standing water in or around your house. Repair leaks indoors and eliminate standing water sites outside. Finally, seal off possible pest entrances into your home, including siding or foundation cracks.

When should I hire a pest control professional?

When you see signs of pests in your Bath home—which could include droppings, nests, signs of damage, or the pests themselves—you should contact an exterminator. If your home has had seasonal or recurrent pest infestations, we recommend reaching out to a local pest control company to request annual pest management services.

Do I need to worry about my pets during the pest control process?

Your pest control company will let you know how far your pets need to be kept away from treated areas, and for how long. Some pesticides are low toxicity or non-toxic, but as a general rule you'll be asked to keep pets out of the area during and for some time after application.
