Common Pest Issues We Treat in Berkley

Common types of pests we treat in Berkley, MI include:

  • Rodents

  • Spiders

  • Carpenter Ants

  • Termites

Berkley Termite Control

Costing billions of dollars’ worth of damage each year, termites are every homeowner’s worst nightmare. Since they are often hidden away within the structure of a home, they can be there for years before a homeowner finally discovers them. The three types of termites are subterranean, drywood, and dampwood. All in search of wood, termites have the potential to cause extensive, irreversible damage to your home.

Things that attract termites include:

  • Excess foliage

  • Piles of wood

  • Dead or decaying trees

  • Mulch

  • Cellulose material

  • Clogged gutters

  • Warm, dark places

  • Moist soil

If you notice winged ants, mud tubes, wings that have been shed, or structural damage to your home, you might be facing a termite infestation.

Carpenter Ant Control in Berkley

Carpenter ants are known for chewing through wood to build their elaborate nests. Many people believe that these ants eat wood, but they actually just tunnel through it and chew on it in order to break away pieces needed for their nests.

In order to avoid structural damage to your home, there are a few things you can do to prevent carpenter ant infestations.

These include:

  • Eliminate non-essential water sources in your yard and home

  • Trim trees and shrubs to keep them away from the home

  • Seal any cracks or openings around doors and windows

  • Store piles of wood away from the home

Because they prefer wood that is softened by moisture or fungus, it is best to monitor the wood surrounding your home and remove it if it is damp or coated in fungus.

Spider Control in Berkley

Venomous or not, spiders are one of the most feared pests commonly found in homes. From wolf spiders to hobo spiders to black widow spiders to brown recluse spiders to house spiders, these pests are never welcome guests.

Without professional pest control, keeping spiders out of your home is very difficult to do. These critters have no trouble finding openings into your house and making themselves feel right at home.

Spiders are drawn to houses that can provide:

  • Shelter: Spiders escape extreme weather conditions by hiding away in dark corners, basements, crawlspaces, and attics.

  • Mates: During mating season, males will enter your home in search of mates.

  • Food: Other pests are spiders’ main source of food, so they will come into a home if they know there are plenty of other pests there.

Carpenter Bee Control in Berkley

Carpenter bees love the city of Berkley and the surrounding area because of all the exposed wood they can find here. Carpenter bees are normally seen near eaves, fascia boards, decks, outdoor furniture and anywhere else with exposed wood where they can build their nests. Their favorite place to nest is where they can find bare, unpainted, or weathered softwood.

Berkely Pavement Ant Control

Pavement ants are another common pest in Berkley homes. These troublesome ants are often seen around driveways and foundations, or they might decide to build a nest in your walls, insulation, or under your floors.

The most common time to see these small, black ants is in spring and summer when young pavement ants swarm after rainy days to mate and set up new colonies.

Cockroach Control in Berkley

Just like pretty much anywhere else, cockroaches can be found in any developed residential or commercial areas in Berkley. You will want to be especially wary of German cockroaches. Although only half an inch long, these roaches can infest whole apartment complexes and high-rise buildings on a large scale. You can identify a male German cockroach by two black stripes on a brown to dark brown body.
