Common Pest Issues We Treat in Bloomfield Hills
Common types of pests we treat in Bloomfield Hills, MI include:
Bloomfield Hills 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:
Piles of wood
Dead or decaying trees
Warm, dark places
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 Bloomfield Hills
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.
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.
Mosquito Control in Bloomfield Hills
Many people are familiar with the sight of swarms of mosquitoes around rivers, lakes, and other bodies of water, and it’s not a nice thing to see!
Mosquitoes can breed in any form of stagnant or standing water, whether it’s a pool of water in an old tire, water in your bird feeder, or your ornamental garden pond. While male mosquitoes feed on nectar, females need protein to produce their eggs so they will bite and suck animal or human blood. These bites can leave your skin red, itchy and sore.
There are several stretches of open water and large lakes in Bloomfield Hills, including Vhay Lake, Kingswood Lake, and Endicott Lake. If you live near these lakes or you are concerned about mosquitoes, we can help!
