How To Choose a Pest Control Company

There are a number of factors that you can weigh when choosing the best pest control treatment methodfor you. You might take into consideration a company's qualifications, methods, years of experience, customer reviews, and service prices.

Below, we discuss each factor in more detail.

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

    The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has set minimum competency standards for pesticide applicators, but licensure is taken care of at the state level. All pesticide applicators and their supervisors in Ohio must be licensed through the proper state regulatory agencies.

  • Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

    Obtaining additional optional certifications can help demonstrate that a pest control company is reputable. One example is the GreenPro Service Certification. To receive this certification, a company must show that its methods are more eco-friendly and that its employees receive up-to-date training. Other certifications can be obtained through trade organizations like QualityPro.

    There are various professional organizations in which pest control companies can hold membership. Membership in an organization like the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) or a state-level organization gives companies access to education and resources, as well as a professional network to compare best practices with. Belonging to organizations like these is not mandatory, but it can help indicate that a company follows industry best practices.

Professional Experience and Specialties

For the most part, a company provides information like its specialities and years of experience on its website. Online reviews can also help you determine if a company has experience dealing with a specific pest. 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 check a company's Better Business Bureau (BBB) rating, browse reviews on local review sites or social media, or check the standing of its license via the Ohio licensing board.

  • Cost of Services and Guarantees

    Things like your location, the size of your house, the type of pest being treated, and other factors can all influence the cost of pest control.

    You can find out whether a company provides free on-site estimates (to determine if it fits in your budget) and what sort of guarantees it offers. Often, a company will provide a guarantee that if it does not eliminate your pest problem, it will continue treatment until it does.

Safety and Treatment Methods

Your preferences regarding safety for yourself, any children or pets, and the environment can influence which provider and treatment methods you choose.

  • Safety

    All pesticides that will be used (except those that pose only a minimum risk) are required to be registered with the EPA. Your pest control expert should be able to supply information on all the pesticides that they plan to use. They should be able to tell you whether these chemicals are low toxicity or non-toxic, and if not, what safety precautions will be in place.

  • Treatment Methods

    Pest control professionals looking to reduce their reliance on chemical pesticides often follow practices such as Integrated Pest Management (IPM). Using IPM involves a series of steps:

    1. Identify problem pests and determine whether 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 if needed, and always in combination with other solutions for effective long-term pest management.
    5. Observe the results and implement additional pest control as needed.

Common Household Pests in Clear Creek

Not all pests are equally common in Clear Creek. Some species that you should be on the lookout for include the following:

  • Bees: Bees around your home can be a nuisance, particularly if someone in your household has an allergy. Your pest control technician can help get rid of bees, and some might even have the resources to safely relocate hives.
  • Bed bugs: Bed bugs may be found throughout Ohio, and they can lead to big problems if left untreated. Because infestations of bed bugs can be difficult to get rid of, we recommend hiring a professional exterminator as soon as you discover the problem. Bed bugs can infest wallpaper, furniture, bedsheets, and more.
  • Mice: If there are mice in your home, you might 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.

Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control in Clear Creek

What causes pest infestations?

Pest infestations occur when pests come into your home looking for something, usually food, water, or shelter. Pests might be looking to eat food or trash left sitting out. Some may also be drawn to standing water outside (from rain collecting in a particular spot) or inside (from leaky pipes). Pests might also enter your home looking for shelter and get in through weak spots such as foundation cracks or broken screens.

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

There are several things you can do to help prevent pest infestations. First, avoid leaving food out. Make sure food is stored in sealed containers, and don't leave trash sitting around.

Second, avoid having standing water in or around your home. Fix leaks indoors and eliminate places where standing water collects outside. Finally, seal off any possible pest entrances into your house, including siding or foundation cracks.

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

Typically, it's recommended that you get your home treated for pests around once a year, more frequently if there is an active infestation. Your pest control professional will ultimately be the best person to recommend a treatment schedule for you.

How long does it take pest control to work?

How long pest control takes to work depends on the issue and treatment. For example, if your technician removes a wasp nest, the problem should be resolved immediately. In other cases, it could take anywhere from a few days to up to six weeks for significant pest control results to be noticeable. Some pest issues may require your technician to make multiple trips to your home.

How long does pest control last?

The majority of pesticides last about 30 to 90 days after application. Rain can wash away outdoor chemicals, giving them a shorter lifespan than those applied indoors. Some other things that can affect how long pesticide application lasts include what chemicals are used, the application method, what pests are present, and the extent of your pest problem.
