Frequently Asked Questions
Over the 25 plus years in the "pest control" business we get asked a lot of questions. We will answer some of the more frequently asked questions here. If you do not see your question answered here or are not completely satisified with our answer, please call or fill out the form near the bottom of this page, thank you.
Q. Do you have a monthly, quarterly, semiyearly, one time or yearly plan?
A. We offer short- and long-term contracts for most pest control services. Unlike national companies we can customize a program that fits your needs and we do not make you sign long term agreements that are impossible to get out of.
Q. Do you offer a written estimate? Is your work guaranteed? Are you insured if something goes wrong?
A. Yes, we will always provide a written estimate so you will know exactly what is covered and the price of the service. We are licensed and insured in Ohio and Pennsylvania and our work is always guaranteed.
Q. Are the chemicals you use safe for children and pets?
A. All pest control technicians are highly trained and licensed to use products in strict accordance with the label. When used according to the label these products have no effect on non-target animals. Also, most pest problems can be solved by a treatment to the exterior so treatments inside may not be needed depending on what the pest issue is.
Q. Will rain wash away the effectiveness of the pest products used on the exterior of my home?
A. No, most products have other inert materials mixed with the main ingredient that help the molecules bond to the surface of the structure and withstand the rain. Direct sunlight can break down the materials on any surface, so it is important to use the right product when dealing with pests.
Q. How long have you been in the pest control industry?
A. I have been in the pest control industry for 27 years and Prevention Pest Control is in its eighth year of business.
Q. Do you do any continuing education programs to make sure you have the latest knowledge?
A. Yes, we always attend local training seminars that update the laws in Ohio and any new technology that has proven to work. We also try to attend some of the industries best training courses out of state at the University of Kentucky and Purdue – now that the pandemic is over these training programs and many more like them can continue once again.
