Located in the Great Lakes region along the Cuyahoga River, the Ohio city of Akron is an outdoor lover’s paradise, as it’s home to Springfield Bog, Canal Park, golf courses and more. Akron also has dozens of museums, residences, restaurants and cultural sites. Unfortunately, though, this environment provides the perfect conditions for pest infestations.
Outdoor pests, such as mosquitoes, are commonly found in the area during the spring and summer months. In fact, Akron made Orkin’s Top Mosquito Cities List, coming in just behind Columbus and other midwestern cities like Chicago and Detroit. Although they are small in size, mosquitoes are one of the world’s most dangerous pests, as they can spread illness and disease. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and pest experts urge Ohio residents to use insect repellent as recommended by healthcare professionals when mosquitoes are present outside. Residents can also help protect themselves from mosquitoes by wearing long pants and long sleeves when outdoors and removing any standing water on their properties, as it can be a breeding ground for these biting pests.
In addition to mosquitoes, termites thrive in Akron and the surrounding areas. The Environmental Protection Agency estimates that these tiny pests cause billions of dollars in structural damage annually. And, unfortunately, some insurance providers don’t cover the damage associated with termite infestations. The Ohio Department of Agriculture reports that one of the most common species of termite in the area is the eastern subterranean termite. To help prevent termites, pest experts recommend that residents schedule a routine termite inspection to help ensure their properties are termite-free, as these pests can be difficult for the untrained eye to identify.
