Keeping Pests in Their Place, Not Yours!
Lima is the county seat of Allen County. Despite its relatively small size, Lima’s location at the intersection of State Routes 65, 81, 117, and 309 and Interstate 309 means it sees a lot of motor traffic. Lima is also the home of the University of Northwestern Ohio, the James A. Rhodes State College, and the Lima campus of Ohio State. All that motor and college-bound traffic make Lima a busy and lively town. They also bring pests, however.
Like most cities that host travelers and colleges, Lima deals with its share of imported pest problems. Luckily, Plunkett’s Pest Control is here to help you with those problems. Our local technicians have been working in Lima for a long time. Whatever the size, type, or severity of your home or businesses’ problem, we know just how to fix it–for good. If you’re in Lima and you need pest control, Plunkett’s is the place to contact.
Lima Pest Problems and Solutions
Some of Lima’s pest problems are simply the problems of all Northwestern Ohio. The variable climate brings seasonal pests like box elder bugs and stink bugs looking to overwinter in shelter or find food. Some pest problems, like bed bugs or stored product pests, arrive with travelers before they proceed to spread through the city. Here are a few of Lima’s most common pest problems, and how Plunkett’s could help you with them:
Box elder bugs: Box elder bugs are attracted to the seeds of acer trees such as maple and (of course) box elders. They enter buildings to stay warm during winter starting in fall. Plunkett’s can drive box elders out and keep them out for good.
Stink bugs: Stink bugs congregate on warm, heat-reflecting surfaces starting in late summer and early fall before trying to infiltrate buildings to stay warm. Do not attempt to kill stink bugs yourself; Plunkett’s can remove them far more effectively and permanently.
Stored product pests: It only takes one unassuming moth or beetle on a box or bag to kickstart a surprisingly significant infestation in your pantry or closet. Plunkett’s can remove these infestations and destroy eggs so they don’t happen again.
Bed bugs: Bed bugs hitchhike into town with unwitting travelers by hiding on or inside their boxes, bags, and sheets. Plunkett’s trained K9 inspection units find bed bugs with 97% accuracy, and then our heat treatments wipe them out completely.
