CommonPests In Ohio

Latin Name: Crematogaster
Length: Varies
Color: Variable in color from light red to brown or black
Nesting Habits: Social


Ants may invade the home for food (sweets and meat). They may also move indoors during rainy weather to seek dry, high grounds where food is plentiful. All species of ants grow wings when it is time to form a new colony. The female workers are the non-winged ants you typically find in a home. It is the male ant that grows wings in order to seek out a queen and mate with her (as the queen also grows wings). Our team uses all available methods to prevent ants from taking over your home without causing any harm to humans and their environment. Treatment plans include a barrier spray, baiting, and granulating. If you find ants in your house, please call Alexander’s or book an appointment right away.

Last Name: Cimex lectularius
Color: Reddish-brown
Length: Up to 4 to 5 mm long or the size of an apple seed
Nesting Habits: Most Commonly Social


Bed bugs use pheromones and kairomones to communicate regarding nesting locations, feeding, and reproduction. Physical methods of controlling bed bugs include steam cleaning, vacuuming, heating, freezing, washing, and throwing out items. Bed bugs prefer to hide in cracks and crevices during the daytime and come out to feed on the host’s blood at night, usually while the host is sleeping. For public health reasons, individuals are encouraged to call a professional pest control service to eradicate bed bugs in a home, rather than attempting to do it themselves, particularly if they live in a multifamily building. Alexander’s will give you specific instructions to prepare for an inspection or treatment.

brown recluse spider ohio

Latin Name: Loxosceles reclusa
Length: Between 6 and 20 mm (0.24 and 0.79 in)
Color: Typically light to medium brown
Nesting Habit: Solo, predatory hunters


The Brown Recluse Spider tends to build webs in sheds, woodpiles, closets, garages, cellars, and in other areas where they won’t be bothered. However, they sometimes wander into the home. Places you might find a Brown Recluse in your home are shoes, inside dressers, in bed sheets of unused beds, in stacks or piles of clothing, inside gloves, behind baseboards, in toilets, and other sources of warmth when ambient temperatures are lower than usual. The spider usually bites only when pressed against the skin. The bite frequently is not felt initially and may not be immediately painful, but it can be serious. The Brown Recluse bears a potentially deadly hemotoxic venom. If you believe you have a Brown Recluse issue please call Alexander’s to schedule an inspection for an assessment on how we can get the situation under control.

Latin Name: Periplaneta americana
Length: 4 cm
Color: Reddish-brown
Sounds: Chirping Noise
Nesting Habits: Social


The most common cockroaches in Ohio are the German and American Cockroach. Cockroaches used to be looked at as a pest linked to poverty and uncleanliness, however we are now finding many cases where homes that are well maintained have cockroach problems. In most cases, the pest has been transferred into the home through an item purchased in take-out or from a market. Cockroaches have actually been found to be a source of causing allergies in people. If you find any cockroaches or other pest related problems in your home, please give Alexander’s a call and we will get everything under control for you as soon as possible.

Latin Name: Vespa
Length: 2.2 in (European hornet, Adult, Female, Queen)
Color: Reddish brown and yellow
Nesting Habits: Social


European hornets are social stinging insects. They build communal nests by chewing wood to make a papery pulp. Most species make exposed nests in trees and shrubs, but some build their nests underground. In Ohio the nest dies over the winter, with lone queens hibernating inside until the spring. Hornets are often considered pests, as they aggressively guard their nesting sites when threatened. This is particularly true for hornets nesting close to homes.

Latin Name: Culicidae
Length: 16 mm
Disease Carrier: Yes


Mosquitoes cause many diseases like the Zika Virus, Malaria, Dengue, Yellow Fever, etc. Mosquitoes cause viral diseases and they can transmit diseases from one person to another. Due to this, over one million people worldwide die from mosquito-borne diseases every year. But there is relief! Alexander’s is equipped with granule blowers and ULV spray rigs to help keep the mosquito population at bay. In the summertime, Alexander’s regularly treats cities and townships for mosquito control. If you have a population problem with mosquitoes, contact one of our offices to learn more about control and how Alexander’s can help.

Latin Name: Rattus norvegicus
Weight: 500 grams
Length: They can reach lengths of 40 cm, and their tails alone may measure 21 cm
Color: Brown or gray in color


Norway rats are omnivorous and feed on a variety of food sources. If given the choice, they will consume meats, fruits, grains and nuts. Dead animals also serve as a food source for these rats, and they are capable of catching small fish and rodents. They require water to drink, and they make their colony as close to a water source as possible. Norway rats typically nest in underground burrows from which they enter buildings in search of food. They tend to remain in hiding during the day. The Norway Rat population grows very quickly, so it is better to target them before the rat population gets out of control by taking some preventive methods.

Latin Name: Vespula Maculifrons
Length: 0.5 in
Color: Black and Yellow
Nesting Habits: Social 


Yellow jackets are common stinging insects. In the fall season these wasps will begin nesting to prepare for hibernation and often times will find hollow areas in the siding of older homes to nest in. Most of the Yellow jackets that end up in a home are due to someone or something blocking the entrance/exit to their nest. If you find a yellow jacket nest in your home, please do not attempt to block the entrance to the nest; call Alexander’s Pest Control immediately for a quick and worry-free solution.
