Crawford County Pest Control
Crawford County, like the rest of Ohio, has a rather temperate climate with mild summers but cold winters. This can force a lot of pests to seek out people's homes and businesses for shelter. If you suspect that your home or yard has become a breeding ground for pests, you'll want to hire Kline Pest Control because we've been serving this area for over 15 years. Let us tell you about the pests you'll frequently find.
Contrary to popular belief, bedbugs don't limit themselves to low-class establishments; they'll go wherever they can find a warm, snug place to hide and a human host nearby. It's likely that you picked up bedbugs after staying at a hotel or motel because these pests are good at latching onto clothes and luggage. As their name implies, they'll usually congregate to the mattress, box spring, and bed frame, coming out at night to suck blood. They might also migrate to cracks in your walls and baseboards.
Bedbugs can live for months without feeding, which means that they may be spreading without your knowing about it. They're also one of the toughest pests to eliminate; simply throwing out your mattress is not an option. At Kline Pest Control, we offer several solutions. We can fumigate infested areas or perform a whole-room heat treatment since bedbugs can't survive in high temperatures.
While mosquitoes can ruin your summers out in the backyard, they're capable of much worse. Many of these insects carry life-threatening diseases like malaria, yellow fever, and the Zika virus, which they'll transmit through their bites. Insect repellents may not keep them at bay because your sweat, which attracts mosquitoes, will naturally wear down the effect.
It's best to take care of the problem while they're still outside your property. Our team can start by thoroughly inspecting your yard for areas of standing water. Mosquitoes only need the shallowest bit of water to lay their eggs in, so children's pools, rain collection systems, and birdbaths are all fair targets. Adult mosquitoes also like to dwell in areas of overgrowth, such as tall grasses and shrubs. After we find every trace of them, we'll use a fogger to eliminate them. Our larvicides will kill the immature mosquitoes.
Rats and mice are common invaders, especially in the winter. They'll come in through holes in the attic and cracks in the walls and drain pipes, and once inside, they'll scavenge around for food and nest materials. While mice will generally stay put, rats will try and burrow their way into your kitchen, laundry, and other areas in your home. Both, however, pose a health risk because of the diseases they can carry - and it's not just the plague. Any contact with their excrement, urine, or saliva can transmit diseases like hantavirus pulmonary syndrome and leptospirosis.
Mice can usually be eliminated through mousetraps, but rodents might require a different approach. We'll spray rodenticides that have low toxicity to humans and the environment, or we can create a baiting system.
