Toledo is located right at the mouth of the Maumee river, where the river enters Lake Erie. The Maumee river passes through the heart of the city until emptying out into Maumee Bay on the east border. Wherever you are in Toledo, you’re not far from water. Lake Erie gives the city temperature, if humid, and windy weather patterns. The fourth largest city in Ohio is beautiful and busy, but it’s not without its pest problems.

Toledo Pest Problems and Solutions
Everything needs water to survive–and that includes pests. In fact, many pests, such as mosquitoes, are “waterborne,” meaning they require water to breed. Other pests, like termites and cockroaches, require constant moisture and humidity to stay active. All of these pests gravitate toward lakes and rivers… and the cities near them. Here are some of the most common pest problems in Toledo and how Plunkett’s can help you with them:
Mosquitoes: Mosquitoes breed in standing water and then fly inland to seek food. The more water they have, the faster they’ll breed… and spread. Plunkett’s offers one-time or seasonal, ongoing mosquito treatment plans to keep the bloodsuckers away from you.
Cockroaches: Cockroaches hide and breed in dark, secluded, and humid locations, often near water. Plunkett’s cockroach treatment program will eliminate 75% of the roaches in your building within one week, and 100% of roaches within six.
Termites: Termites build their initial colonies near water because they need a constant source of moisture to stay hydrated while they eat. Plunkett’s uses the Sentricon System to eliminate termite colonies completely and keep them from coming back.
Spiders: Spiders are opportunistic pests, which means they build their nests anywhere they can hunt prey consistently. Plunkett’s can remove spiders and their webs from your building, figure out how they get inside, and make sure they can’t get in again.
