Youngstown is the county seat of Mahoning County in far Northeast Ohio. Like many Ohio cities, Youngstown is bisected by a river (the Mahoning river in this case), and is located along quite a few highly popular highways. Youngstown is also located between Cleveland and Pittsburgh, and it’s the midway point between Chicago and New York city. The Youngstown metro area is a major national thoroughfare… and it has the pest problems to match.
Waterborne and hitchhikings pests tend to stick around Youngstown… and spread. Just because they’re around Youngstown doesn’t mean these pests have to be around you, however.

Youngstown Pest Problems and Solutions
There are two big sources of pest problems in Youngstown. The first is the Mahoning river. Waterborne pests like mosquitoes and cockroaches breed around water and then come inland for food. The second are travelers. Hitchhiking pests like bed bugs sneak into town with travelers and then stick around and spread. Here are some of the common pest problems afflicting Youngstown, and how Plunkett’s solves them:
Mosquitoes: Mosquitoes breed in standing water and then spread inland to seek food. Plunkett’s offers either one-time or seasonal, ongoing mosquito treatment plans to remove breeding sites and keep the bloodsuckers away from you for good.
Cockroaches: Cockroaches need a constant source of moisture and humidity to remain active, so they’re particularly common near water. Plunkett’s roach treatment program eliminates 75% of roaches in a structure within one week, and 100% within six weeks.
Bed bugs: Bed bugs spread by hiding inside unwitting travelers bags and boxes and moving from place-to-place with them. Plunkett’s trained K9 inspection team finds bed bugs with 97% accuracy and our heat treatments eliminate them completely.
Ants: Ants usually establish their colonies near moisture, because it helps them remain active while expanding. Carpenter ants require constant moisture to keep working. Whatever the species, Plunkett’s can remove them and keep them from getting back in.
