We have a variety of pesky rodents in Ohio. In the winter months, these critters are always looking for a warm place to dwell. House mice, deer mice, brown rats, and roof rats can cause damage to wires in attics, ceilings and wall areas. Rats carry a number of diseases including viral hemorrhagic fever which is life-threatening.
Common methods to identify and prevent rodent infestation.

- Search under the sink, in cupboards and drawers where food is stored for rodent droppings.
- Collestion of nesting material such as shredded paper, discarded fabric, or dried plant material.
- Food packagings shows signs of being chewed.
- Walls and floors compromised due to chewing and knawing.
- Stale or ammonia smell omitting from hidden areas.
Discouraging rodents from taking up residence
- Seal and plug holes that lead into house or or inhabited dwellings.
- Remove nesting sites such as leave piles and gathered mulch.
- Keep food sealed or remove exposed food and water sources.
- Use huskless items for feeding birds or cease feeding birds entirely while in rodent prevention stage.
What should I do if I see a mouse or rat?
Many business or homeowners try to capture the rodent themselves. While we understand this urge, we never recommend this since there is a chance you could get bitten. Don’t put yourself at risk. Call a pest control company like A-1 Pest Control.

How Do I Know If I Have Termites?
Signs of termites
- You hear strange clicking noises. Termites often bang their heads against the wood they eat which makes a subtle clicking noise that you can sometimes hear.
- You see wood damage. As termites make their way inward, they leave damaged wood in their trail. You can see wood that has been weakened, flaked or has small holes.
- If you see a "white ant", it's probably a termite. People often mistake termites for ants.
- If you see flying termites or discarded wings, you may have a termite problem.
If you see any of the signs listed above, call the exterminators at A1 Pest Control. Let us help you develop a plan to save your home.
