Common Pest Issues We Treat in Grosse Pointe Twp
Some of the most common types of pests we treat in Michigan include:
Rodents: moles, voles
Grosse Pointe residents often come across carpenter bees because they love residential neighborhoods and the plentiful nesting sites they provide. Common nesting sites for carpenter bees include eaves, window trim, facia boards, siding, wooden shakes, decks and outdoor furniture.
Carpenter bee nests are tunnels that they bore into wood and then divide into multiple chambers. Inside each chamber in a carpenter bee tunnel is an egg and a mixture of pollen and regurgitated nectar, which serves as food for the larvae once it hatches.
Carpenter bees develop over the winter in their tunnel nests and then emerge in the spring. After mating in the spring, they clean out and enlarge the old tunnels they hibernated in through the winter or they excavate new ones as brood chambers for their young.

Pavement ants, also called “slab ants”, are found near pavement sources like driveways and foundations. Pavement ants are fond of foods that include protein, fat or sugar.
Common natural items in their diet are insects and seeds, and common human foods they’ll eat include honey, bread, meats, nuts and cheese.
Although most of us can’t control the pavement around our home, minimizing their food opportunities helps reduce the chances of pavement ants showing up uninvited and turning into a real pest problem.
Paper wasps get their name from their nests, which are made from plant stem pieces and fibers of dead wood. They mix those together with their saliva to form a brown paper-like material that they use to construct their nest.
Paper wasp nests are common in Grosse Pointe because they like to build their nests on horizontal surfaces, and houses and other human structures have all kinds of those! Paper wasps are very territorial and will attack people if they believe their nest is threatened.
