Keeping Pests in Their Place, Not Yours!
The county seat of Muskingum County is far from the largest city in Ohio, but it’s beautiful, lively, and busy any way. Zanesville is located at the confluence of the Muskingum and Licking rivers, as well as Interstate 70 and US route 22. Zanesville is also home to Ohio University-Zanesville and Zane State college. Between the water, roads, and colleges, Zanesville sees the traffic of a much larger city!
All that traffic comes with consequences–namely, pest consequences. Zanesville also tends to deal with a larger pest problem than its size might suggest. No matter how bad the problem, however, Plunkett’s Pest Control is ready to help. Our local experts have the experience, know-how, and tools to solve your pest problem quickly, effectively, and permanently. If you’re in the Zanesville area and you need pest control, Plunkett’s is the place to contact.
Common Pest Problems in Zanesville
Zanesville is located right at the heart of several different kinds of intersection, and intersections mean traffic. Waterborne pests from the Muskingum and Licking rivers make their way downstream to Zanesville before making nests. Hitchhiking pests come into town from the highways with travelers and moving college students. Other opportunistic pests latch onto Zanesvilles many gardens and parks. Here are a few of the pest problems that afflict Zanesville most frequently, and what we can do about them:
Bed bugs: Bed bugs spread by hiding inside unsuspecting traveler’s boxes and bags. Plunkett’s K9 inspection team finds bed bugs with 97% accuracy, and our heat treatments wipe them out for good.
Mosquitoes: Mosquitoes breed in sources of standing water, so they’re particularly common near water. Plunkett’s offers one-time and ongoing, seasonal mosquito treatment programs to keep the bloodsuckers away from you.
Termites: Termites build their colonies near water because they need a constant source of moisture to remain active. Plunkett’s uses the Sentricon system to eliminate termite colonies permanently and safeguard structures against them in the future.
Rodents: Mice and rats infiltrate buildings by sneaking through tiny access points near door and window frames. Plunkett’s can remove existing rodent infestations and block off access points to keep mice and rats from re-entering after they’re gone.
