Cincinnati, OH, sees hot summers and snowy winters. These patterns cause many pests to cross paths with humans throughout the year. The following rodents are common in the colder months:
Cincinnati regularly ranks among the U.S. cities with the most prevalent rat and mouse issues. Larger than mice, local Norway rats and roof rats get inside through holes in roofs, garages, and siding. Once indoors, they chew holes in food packaging and contaminate the products inside. The pests also gnaw wires and beams.
Wall voids, attics, and voids under and behind cabinets provide the ideal nesting spot for a house mouse, as these spaces are small and hidden from humans. When Ohio residents begin to see the pests in living areas, the infestation is likely severe. In addition to tainting food, mice can attract snakes and other wildlife.
Residents of Cincinnati face plenty of problem insects as well, especially during warm weather. Pest populations that skyrocket in summer include:
This insect enjoys damp, humid conditions in Ohio houses, so they often gather in kitchens and bathrooms. When the pests transfer harmful bacteria from their bodies to food, they pose health risks. Infestations can also create foul odors and trigger allergic reactions.
Flies live and develop in filth and come into homes through open doors and windows. Many Cincinnati fly species, such as house flies, carry germs that spread everywhere they land. Exposed garbage and clogged drains are some of the most common reasons for a fly infestation.
I hope the Orkin Men are commended. They had a big job to do and did it well. They were organized and very polite.
On September 11, 1979, one of our ambulances broke down in I-71 while proceeding on a Code 3 run to pick-up a critical, dying patient. Under these desperate circumstances, Orkin’s two men graciously stopped to render assistance. Your employees then went ‘the extra mile’ to quickly return our two crew members to our garage where they took another unit and proceeded on their run. As I’m sure you are aware, this kind of spirit and attitude cannot be taught to employees, and I find it rare in this day and age of ‘don’t get involved-ism’.
I write to compliment your company and service people for our satisfaction. Although we only had minor problems, there has not been a single rodent sighting since talking to your salesperson and Orkin Man and contracting for enhanced service. I would like to thank Orkin for a job well done and applaud the people you employ.
I called our serviceman who was unavailable. The manager for our area came out that same day. I’d like to commend his work and professional attitude. It is a pleasure to deal with such pleasant and efficient individuals.
The Orkin Man completed the most thorough inspection we’ve ever had. A nice representative for Orkin.
