Is DIY Bird Control Effective In Wurtland?

Many people look to attract birds to their Wurtland homes with things like bird feeders and bird baths, but birds are a form of pest that can quickly grow out of control. To start, they are carriers of other pests like fleas, ticks, and mites, and with their free access to your property, they can very easily spread these pests. Add into the mix that their fecal matter passes along dangerous pathogens to humans and you could have a real problem on your hands. 

Bird problems can quickly grow out of control, and the average property owner may seek to handle these issues on their own. Unfortunately, birds are not a pest that can be evicted with DIY techniques. The most effective form of bird control is with professional assistance from Ohio Pest Control, where we use ethical traps, spikes, and other methods of making your home inhospitable to birds. Contact us today for more information on keeping birds off of your property. 

 

Answering Wurtland's Most Commonly Asked Tick Questions

Ticks are a very common pest in Wurtland, and hearing their name alone is enough to scare most people. Here are a few things you should know about ticks and how to handle them:

  • What kinds of ticks might I encounter in Wurtland? Some ticks that are popular in the area are the American dog tick, the Lone Star tick, and the blacklegged tick.

  • How do ticks get inside my home? Most commonly, ticks are brought inside the home by your pets, but sometimes humans can bring them inside, as can other pests like rodents, squirrels, and wildlife.

  • Are all ticks dangerous? While many ticks carry pathogens that are dangerous to humans, not all ticks pose a health risk. Some ticks, however, may spread Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain fever, and more.

  • What do I do if I get bitten by a tick? If you’re bitten by a tick, always remove the tick entirely, wash the bitten area, and monitor yourself for symptoms like swollen joints and muscle pain. Consider consulting a physician if any of these symptoms persist.

Wurtland Homeowners' Guide To Avoiding Mouse Infestations

Mice are a significant problem for Wurtland homeowners, and once you have an infestation, they usually only grow. To avoid a mouse problem of any kind, try these tips:

  • To start, ensure that all of the openings and gaps around your home are fully sealed with materials like sheet metal, silicone-based caulk, wire mesh, and steel wool. No opening is too small for a mouse!

  • On the inside of your home, look at anything that could be considered a food source and make sure that it is properly stored. This means keeping food and pantry items in airtight containers, using a garbage bin with a proper lid, and avoiding leaving dishes piled up in the sink.

  • With mice, it’s also important to maintain a certain level of cleanliness in your home. Tending to the surfaces and floors around your home is key, while also clearing clutter on a regular basis.

  • Be sure to keep your attics, basements, and crawl spaces well ventilated, as these are common breeding grounds for mouse nests.

  • Fix any leaky pipes, faucets, or bathtubs if you notice a problem.

Where there is one mouse, there are usually many, so at the first sight of these pests, contact the team at Ohio Pest Control today. We have the tools and the knowledge to keep rodents out of your home and look forward to working with you to make this a reality. 

 

How To Prevent Bed Bugs In Wurtland

If you’ve ever heard the saying, “Don’t let the bed bugs bite,“ then you’re probably familiar with the havoc that these pests can cause. They lodge themselves deep inside mattresses, couches, and even drawers, coming out primarily at night in order to feed off of human blood. They require a blood meal in order to survive; however, bed bugs can survive for months without one, which means that they have little incentive to ever leave. This is why prevention is key when it comes to bed bugs, here are a few tips to try in order to keep them out of your Wurtland property:

  • Before returning home after any travel, hotel stays, or taking public transportation, inspect your clothes thoroughly. 

     

  • If you’ve stayed at a hotel, store your worn clothes securely and wash them on the highest setting upon arriving home.

  • Limit wildlife and rodent populations on your Wurtland property, as they are known carriers of bed bugs and other parasites.

  • Ensure that the cracks and crevices around your home’s foundation are sealed property.

  • If you’re considering bringing any secondhand furniture, mattresses, or kitchen appliances, always inspect them closely and have a good understanding of where they were stored prior to finding them.

Whether you’re looking to prevent bed bugs from taking over your home or you need professional assistance in getting rid of an active infestation, contact the team at Ohio Pest Control today.
