    How To Choose a Pest Control Company

    It's important to choose the best pest control company for you. Along with a company's qualifications and treatment methods, you may also consider how long it has been in business and what the reviews are like. Finally, you'll likely want to look at the cost of services.

    Below, we dive into detail on each of these factors.

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

      According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), all pesticide applicators and their supervisors are required to be certified at the state level. The EPA sets minimum standards of competency, but all Ohio pesticide applicators need to be licensed through the proper 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 given once a company has shown that its treatment methods are more environmentally friendly and demonstrated that it also holds itself up to certain other standards, such as up-to-date employee training. A pest control company can also earn other certifications from trade organizations like QualityPro to further back up its methods and practices.

      Pest control companies can also join various professional organizations. Companies can obtain membership in the National Pest Management Association (NPMA), or state-level organizations. Membership in the NPMA gives companies access to resources, education, and a network of other pest professionals. While not required, membership in professional organizations helps back up a company's reputability.

    Professional Experience and Specialties

    You can get some insight into a company's level of experience by finding out how long it has been in business. Local reviews and the company's own website can also clue you in as to whether a company has experience dealing with the specific species of pests that are afflicting your home. You can always reach out to a representative directly to learn this information if it is not available online.

    • Reviews and Recommendations

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

    • Cost of Services and Guarantees

      For many people, cost is one of the most important factors when picking a company for pest control. Cost can be determined by factors like the size of your house, the type of pest being treated, and your location.

      You can look into whether a particular company offers free on-site estimates (to determine if it fits in your budget), and what kind 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

    Your choice of pest control provider might be influenced by how environmentally friendly a company's practices are, in addition to how safe its methods are around your family and pets.

    • Safety

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

    • Treatment Methods

      You can ask if your technician will start with lower-toxicity, more natural options before moving on to harsher chemicals.

      Many companies are now using Integrated Pest Management (IPM) to treat pest infestations with minimal personal or environmental risk. The steps of IPM are as follows:

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

    Common Household Pests in Findlay

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

    • Ants: Whether they are smaller soil ants or larger carpenter ants, these bugs are found in most of Ohio. Carpenter ants can pose a more urgent issue than their smaller counterparts by causing damage to your house.
    • Bed bugs: Bed bugs may be found throughout Ohio, and they can lead to major problems if left untreated. Because bed bug infestations are hard to get rid of, we recommend getting professional extermination as soon as you discover the problem. Bed bugs can infest furniture, bedsheets, wallpaper, and more.
    • Mice: Some common signs of mouse activity include chewed wires and droppings around your home. Frequently, mice can be found in attics or in areas where you keep food.

    Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control in Findlay

    What are some causes of pest infestations?

    Pests come into 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, 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 are searching for water, whether it be standing water on your property or puddles inside from things like 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, don't leave food out. Keep your food stored in sealed containers, and don't leave trash sitting around.

    Second, avoid having standing water in or around your home. Repair leaks indoors and eliminate standing water sites outdoors. Finally, seal off possible pest entrances into your house, including foundation and siding cracks.

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

    You should consider hiring an exterminator any time you identify signs of pest activity in your Findlay home. These signs can include nests, droppings, pest damage, or even the pests themselves. If you've had recurrent or seasonal pest infestations, we recommend setting up yearly preventive pest management.

    Will I need to clean after pest control services?

    Whether you need to clean your home after pest control services will depend on the type of treatment(s) used. Be sure to ask your pest control technician before they leave. Typically, you will be able to vacuum, dust, and wipe down certain surfaces, although you should be careful not to wipe away chemical barriers or touch any traps unless you have been explicitly told to do so. You may notice a lingering smell after the application of some pesticides.

    After pest treatment, it is important to maintain a clean home to avoid encouraging pests to return.
