Grand Rapids Twp Carpenter Ant Control
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.
Termite Control in Grand Rapids Twp
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.
Cockroach Control in Grand Rapids Twp
Cockroaches are common all over the world and they take up residence in and around homes in Grand Rapids Township as well. In this area, we most often see German cockroaches, though other species make appearances too.
They like messy areas so you’ll often find them where you store yard clippings, old toys or sporting equipment, junk and other debris. They tend to stay hidden most of the time, so if you see one, you could already have an infestation on your hands!
Our Roach Control service can help you reclaim your home from these bacteria-carrying critters.
