The BEST choice for Pest Control in NE Ohio Because we evaluate your needs and combine our treatment with the latest technology to arrive at the best solution for you.The TNT Exterminating Company was founded in September of 1935 by Harold J. Portwood. Initially, TNT was located at 109 North Main Street. Mr. Portwood entered the pest control industry quite by accident as his father-in-laws farm was overtaken by rats and Harold undertook the task of getting rid of them.There were few other exterminating companies in business during the 1930s. Mr. Portwood recognized the need for a service applicable to stores, restaurants, hospitals, and other commercial and industrial facilities. Besides providing monthly pest control services to business establishments and private homes, the office housed a retail store. This store was used for selling insecticides, powders, sprays, and baits to walk-in customers who chose to apply the treatment themselves.In June, 1995, Michael Grace purchased TNT from his father. As a third generation pest control operator having 35 years of experience, Mike has been president of the Ohio Pest Control Association and Chairman of the Ohio Professional Applicators for Responsible Regulation. As the public perception of pesticides continues to evolve, TNT has become a proactive preventive service company rather than a purely reactive one. Our level of service has increased in the flexibility of hours and with the growing need of our customers. We continue to provide inspections and treatments throughout the Akron area. During the late 90s TNT Exterminating had grown into the Cleveland market and suburbs. We currently have accounts from Ashtabula, Mentor, to the west Avon and Parma in between.If you would like to speak with the staff at TNT Exterminating about services offered or to schedule an appointment for an inspection, please email Mike@TNTExterminating.com or Contact Us Today.
