How To Choose a Pest Control Company

There are a number of things that you can weigh when selecting the right pest control company for you. You might consider a company's qualifications and treatment methods as well as its customer reviews and years of experience. And of course, there's the cost of services to consider.

Below, we discuss each of these factors in more detail.

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

    While the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) sets the minimum standards of competency for pesticide applicators, licensing is taken care of at the state level. All pesticide applicators (and those who supervise them) in Ohio need to be licensed by all the necessary state regulatory agencies.

  • Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

    Pest control companies can also obtain optional certifications such as the GreenPro Service Certification. This certification is awarded once a company has shown its methods to be more environmentally friendly and demonstrated that it also holds itself up to certain other standards, such as up-to-date training for employees. 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 various professional organizations. While not required, membership in organizations like the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) or state-level organizations help demonstrate a company's reputability. In the NPMA and other organizations, pest control companies have access to resources, education, and a network of other professionals with whom to discuss best practices.

Professional Experience and Specialties

In general, a company displays information like specialities and years of experience on its website. Online reviews can also tell you whether a company has experience dealing with a particular pest in your area. If you can't get the information you need online, you can call the company directly to get your questions answered.

  • Reviews and Recommendations

    Resources that can be used to verify a company's legitimacy include local review sites, social media, and the Better Business Bureau (BBB). 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 picking a company for pest control. Cost can be determined by factors like the type of pest being treated, your location, and the size of your house.

    You can think about whether a company offers free on-site estimates (to determine if it fits your budget), and what sort of guarantees it provides. 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

Safety is an important consideration when choosing a pest control provider. You might also prefer a provider who uses more natural, environmentally friendly methods.

  • Safety

    It's important to understand the precautions around pesticides being used in your house, for the sake of your family, your pets, and yourself. Your pest control provider should be able to provide information about any pesticides they plan on using, whether they are low toxicity or non-toxic, and (if not) what safety measures will be used. All pesticides (except minimum-risk ones) need to be registered with the EPA.

  • Treatment Methods

    Many companies have begun using more natural 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 the source of the pest problem and assess whether immediate action is needed.
    2. Determine the best and safest course of action.
    3. Manage the pest problem using a combination of biological, cultural, physical, and mechanical controls.
    4. Employ chemical controls only when required, and always along with other techniques for effective long-term pest management.
    5. Evaluate outcomes and continue with additional pest control as needed.

Common Household Pests in Brunswick

Some pests are more common than others. In Brunswick, common pests to be watchful for include the following:

  • Fleas: Fleas tend to prefer warmer weather and often get indoors by hiding in the fur of pets.
  • Flies: Flies can be a year-round nuisance in your Brunswick home, but they may be especially common during the warmer months. You might find flies around sinks or in areas where you keep food.
  • Bed bugs: Bed bug infestations are often very difficult to get rid of, so we strongly recommend hiring an exterminator as soon as possible. Bed bugs can be found throughout Ohio, and can infest not only your bedsheets, but also other furniture and even wallpaper.
  • Mice: Common signs of mouse activity include chewed wires and droppings around your house. Mice are commonly found in attics or in areas where you keep food.
  • Spiders: You may find spiders in your basement, attic, or other damp, dark places. Most spiders are harmless and pose no threat to humans, but you still don't want an infestation of them in your house.

Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control in Brunswick

What causes pest infestations?

Pests make their way into your house looking for one of three things: food, water, or shelter. Some pests will opportunistically enter your home 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, either standing water on your property or puddles inside from things like leaky pipes.

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

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

Next, avoid having standing water in or around your house. Repair leaks indoors and eliminate standing water sites outside. Lastly, seal off potential pest entrances into your home, including foundation and siding cracks.

How often do I need to hire someone to do pest control?

Normally it's recommended that you hire a pest control technician about once annually. If you have an active infestation, you will need to hire a pest control professional more often. Ultimately, your pest professional will be the person who is best-equipped to recommend a treatment schedule for you.

Will I need to clean my home after pest control services?

Whether you need to clean your home following pest control services will depend on what treatments are used. Make sure that you ask your pest control technician before they leave. Generally, you will be able to vacuum, dust, and wipe down certain surfaces, although you should avoid wiping away chemical barriers or touching any traps unless you have been explicitly told to do so. There might be a lingering smell following the application of some pesticides.

Following pest control, it is important to continue to keep your home clean to avoid encouraging pests to return.

Do pests come out after a technician sprays for them?

It's not uncommon to feel as though you're seeing more pests in the days or weeks following pest control. The process tends to flush pests from their hiding places, which makes them more visible; you might also see more dead pests around your home. If this uptick in pests sightings doesn't begin to decrease after one to two weeks, contact your Brunswick pest professional, as another treatment may be necessary.
