Pest & Wildlife Pressure in Toledo, OH
Thanks to nearby Lake Erie as well as various rivers and channels, Toledo has plenty of water access. This makes the Northwest Ohio city an attractive home for a number of pests that rely on both the region's natural resources and residents for survival.
Squirrels are one of the most abundant rodents in Ohio, and residents may find any one of four local species in their yards. Common in both suburban and urban Toledo, the pests clash with people in their search for food and shelter. These animals typically live in trees, but they also cause problems on the ground and in homes.
When they feed on seeds, fruit, and leaves, hungry squirrels damage gardens and flower beds. In addition, these pests tend to invade houses and nest in attics or wall voids. Squirrel nests are a serious health concern because the rodents carry both fleas and diseases.
Opossums in Ohio
Opossums have learned to live in Toledo neighborhoods. The pests create dens under buildings and woodpiles that give them easy access to garbage cans, bird feeders, and pet food. An opossum will also dig through gardens to find insects.
Q&A with Local Franchisee Jeremy Chester
What are some of the most common wildlife issues that homeowners face in your area?
Squirrels, bats, birds, mice, raccoons, and moles. We mainly see pest wildlife in attics, under decks, in crawl spaces, and burrowing in lawns.
How do the seasons affect wildlife activity in your area?
The plummeting temperatures in autumn and winter months push critters into homes. The warmer weather in late spring and summer attract animals under decks and sheds.
What are some common signs of nuisance wildlife activity?
Noises coming from walls and attics, insulation found in strange places like the yard, and damage done to the exterior of homes.
Any prevention tips for residents in your area?
Secure all vents and openings on the exterior of the home.
When should homeowners call Critter Control?
Call when you see signs of any wildlife activity within the home. Preventing damage is easier and less costly than repairing it.
