Common Pests in Parma, OH
More on pests in your area
Parma, located just southeast of Cleveland, Ohio, boasts a large population and a climate that impacts the amount of pest activity the region experiences. Like many large cities with expansive populations, pests like cockroaches are commonly found. Not only are they unsightly, they can be a potential threat to human health, as they are known to carry human pathogens that can cause illness like food poisoning. Plus, cockroaches can cause respiratory illness, triggering allergies and worsening asthma. Cockroaches are a resilient pest and can thrive just about anywhere, including Parma-area restaurants, schools, shops and even residences. However, in order to prevent roaches, pest management experts strongly urge residents to keep roach hot spot areas — bathrooms and kitchens where moisture and food sources are present — clean and tidy. Without food, water and harborage sites, cockroaches will move on. Yet preventive measures do not always prove effective. In many cases, if a cockroach infestation is suspected, residents should contact a local pest management company right away.
Like roaches, termites are found throughout Parma and across the country. And also like roaches, termites are attracted to moist areas around the home. However, these pests are not a threat to human health, but they can cause serious structural damage. These wood-eating pests, if left untreated, can cause billions of dollars in structural damage across the U.S. annually, Orkin estimates. And according to the Ohio Department of Insurance, termite damage is not covered. Since these pests are attracted to moisture, pest experts recommend repairing leaky downspouts and leaks around the home to keep the pests at bay. Removing excess brush and branches near the home can also keep termites from gaining access. Additionally, homeowners are strongly encouraged to schedule yearly termite inspections to keep their homes termite free.
