Common Pests in Kentucky
Kentucky’s rural, suburban, and urban areas each have their own pest considerations. Rodent and spider infestations are particularly common in the grassy and heavily wooded parts of rural Kentucky. Meanwhile, roach and bed bug infestations tend to be more common in major cities like Louisville and Lexington. Some of the most common pests we’re called in to handle in Kentucky include:
Bed bugs: Unfortunately, Kentucky has a big bed bug problem, especially in Louisville. Bed bugs frequently spread from place-to-place by hiding in traveler’s bags.
Spiders: Kentucky is home to a wide variety of spiders, including the potentially dangerous Black Widow and Brown Recluse spiders.
Roaches: The German cockroach is one of the most common indoor nuisance pests found in Kentucky.
Rodents: Rodent infestations continue to be a problem in both rural and urban areas of the state, especially in fall and winter.
Plunkett’s offers Kentucky specific, specialized pest services for any problem your home or business may encounter. We don’t just get rid of your pests, we also help you make sure they can’t come back. A few of the many services we frequently perform for our Kentucky customers include:
