    How To Choose a Pest Control Company

    When picking a pest control professional, there are a number of things you can consider to be sure you choose the right one for you. Some things you might consider include licensing and qualifications, pest intervention strategies, years of experience, customer reviews, and cost.

    Below, we explore the details of each of these factors.

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

      All pesticide applicators, as well as those that supervise them, should be licensed via the appropriate Ohio regulatory agencies. The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has established minimum standards of competency, but issuing, maintaining, and revoking licensure is handled at the state level.

    • Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

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

      Pest control companies can also belong to professional organizations. Holding membership in organizations such as the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) or state-level organizations is not mandatory, but helps verify a company's reputability. Membership in the NPMA gives companies access to resources, education, and a network of other professionals with whom to discuss practices and methods.

    Professional Experience and Specialties

    Typically, a company provides information like its years of experience and specialities on its website. Online reviews can also help you determine if a company has experience dealing with a particular pest in your area. If you can't get the information you need online, you can speak with a company representative directly to get the answers to your questions.

    • Reviews and Recommendations

      You can verify a company's legitimacy using the Better Business Bureau (BBB) and local review sites or social media. You can also check with Ohio's licensing board to verify the status of a company's license.

    • Cost of Services and Guarantees

      Cost is important when choosing a pest control company. Cost may be determined by the type of pest being treated, the size of your house, your location, and other factors.

      A pest control company may offer a free on-site estimate to help you match services to your budget. You can also look at whether it offers a satisfaction guarantee.

    Safety and Treatment Methods

    Your choice of pest control company might be affected by how environmentally friendly a provider's practicesare, as well as how safe its methods are around your family and pets.

    • Safety

      Ask your pest control provider if they plan to use low toxicity or non-toxic pesticides, and if not, ask about what precautionary measures they will take. Any pesticide that poses greater than minimum risk needs to be registered with the EPA. Your pest technician should be able to supply information about all pesticides to be used, and how safe they are around people and pets.

    • Treatment Methods

      Many companies are now exploring cleaner and greener pest control solutions that can be used before (or instead of) chemical pesticides. Many follow the practice of Integrated Pest Management (IPM), which goes as follows:

      1. Identify the source of the pest problem and determine if 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. Employ chemical controls only when required, and always along with other solutions for effective long-term pest management.
      5. Evaluate outcomes and provide additional pest control as needed.

    Common Household Pests in Boardman

    Not all pests are equally prevalent in Boardman. Some species that you should be wary of are these:

    • Wasps: Wasps can be very hard to rid yourself of, especially while trying to avoid their stingers. They can often be found in places like roof overhangs, sheds, attics, and garages.
    • Spiders: Spiders usually prefer moist, dark places and are commonly found in basements or attics.
    • 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 places where food is kept or in attics.
    • Bed bugs: Bed bugs are found throughout Ohio and can lead to serious problems if left untreated. Because bed bug infestations are often tricky to get rid of, we recommend hiring a professional exterminator as soon as you discover the problem. These pests can infest furniture, bedsheets, wallpaper, and more.

    Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control in Boardman

    What causes pest infestations?

    Pest infestations occur when pests enter your house looking for something, generally food, water, or shelter. Pests may come looking for food or trash left sitting out. Some could also be drawn to standing water outside (from rain collecting in one spot) or inside (from leaky pipes). Pests may also enter your home simply looking for shelter and get in through places like broken screens or foundation cracks.

    What are some things I can do to prevent pest infestations?

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

    Second, try not to have standing water in or around your home. Fix leaks indoors and eliminate places where standing water collects outdoors. Lastly, seal off potential pest entrances into your house, including siding or foundation cracks.

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

    You should consider hiring a pest control professional any time you identify signs of pests in your Boardman home. This could 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.

    Will pests come out after a technician sprays for them?

    You could feel as though you're seeing more pests in your home in the days after pest control treatment. This can be due to living pests being flushed out of their hiding places deep in your home, or you may be finding more dead pests around. If pest activity hasn't started to go down in one to two weeks following treatment, reach out to your Boardman pest control professional to see if more treatment is required.
