Keeping Pests in Their Place, Not Yours!
With a population of over 140,000, Dayton is Ohio’s sixth largest city. Dayton is at the rough center of the “triangle” of Indianapolis, Cincinnati, and Columbus (some of the most trafficked cities of the country), making it a logistical center for manufacturing and shipping, as well as a popular travel destination. Being at the center of everything the way Dayton is has at least one disadvantage, however: pests.
Just like travelers come to Dayton from far and wide, pests tend to make their way to central Ohio, as well. That’s why Plunkett’s Pest Control makes sure our local experts are always ready and waiting to serve Dayton and the rest of central Ohio. No matter the size, severity, or type of pest infestation you’re dealing with in your home or business, Plunkett’s is the place for central Ohio to contact. We have Dayton covered.
Central Ohio Pest Problems and Solutions
Dayton’s pest problems stem in part from the fact that it’s such a notable travel and shipping destination. Hitchhiking pests like bed bugs and stored good infestors come into town with unwitting travelers or shipping companies and begin to spread once they’re unpacked. Other opportunistic pests come for the cities water, food sources, and shelter. Here are some of the most common pest problems in Central Ohio, and how Plunkett’s deals with them:
Bed bugs: Bed bugs tend to come into town with unsuspecting travelers by hitching rides on bags and sheets. Plunkett’s K9 units can locate bed bugs with 97% accuracy, and then our heat treatments can wipe them out completely.
Stored pest products: Stored product pests tend to lay their eggs in the materials they infest. When those eggs hatch, infestations begin anew. Plunkett’s can find pests and their eggs, wipe them out, and make sure they don’t get in again.
Spiders: Spiders are opportunistic predators. They build their webs in any environment where they can find prey consistently. Plunkett’s can figure out where spiders are getting prey, remove webs, and make sure spiders can’t and won’t want to get in again.
Rodents: Rats and mice enter buildings through small access points in order to get food, shelter, and warmth. Plunkett’s can drive out rodent infestations and seal off the access points they used to get inside, making sure rodents can’t get in again.
