Columbus Pest Pressure

Wood Damaging Pests

The second-largest city in the Midwest, Columbus, OH, has a mix of new houses and older dwellings. Both types of homes in Ohio can suffer infestations from damaging pests. Some local wood destroying insects are:

Carpenter Ants

Once carpenter ants enter a house, they set up colonies inside wood walls, flooring, furniture or wall void areas. These insects do not eat timber, but they do bore into it to create nests. Columbus homeowners who find sawdust or small holes in lumber should check for a carpenter ant infestation.


Termite infestations are tough to detect since the pests live either in the ground or in timber. The tiny insects eat wood, and large colonies can weaken the integrity of a home. Subterranean termites nest in soil and use mud tubes to move over stone or concrete. These tunnels and the presence of winged termite swarmers are often the first sign of a problem in Ohio homes.

Biting & Stinging Pests

Biting and stinging insects in Columbus can quickly put a damper on summer activities like camping and hiking. Bothersome outdoor pests in Ohio include:


During spring and summer months in Columbus, mosquitoes breed in stagnant pools and other bodies of water. Homeowners can reduce their numbers by draining water from flowerpots or other containers that hold water. Mosquito bites result in raised, itchy bumps, and the pests transmit diseases such as West Nile virus.

Yellow Jackets

These stinging insects make paper nests inside hollow trees, rodent burrows, or below ground in Ohio yards. Yellow jackets are hostile when disturbed and can sting multiple times. People who have allergic reactions to yellow jacket venom may need medical care following stings.
