Common Pest Issues We Treat in Hartland

While many bugs are most common in spring – fall, a common winter pest in Hartland is house mice.

Common types of pests we treat in the area include:

  • Rodents

  • Spiders

  • Carpenter Ants

  • Termites

Hartland 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.

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.

Termite Control in Hartland

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.

Indian Meal Moth Control in Hartland

Indian meal moths are common indoor pests in Hartland. Their food of choice is milled cereal products, like flour or box cereal. Female moths can lay up to several hundred eggs on food material, which turn into small, white caterpillars that eat any kind of grain or meal.

Hartland Bald-Faced Hornet Control

One of Hartland’s more common outdoor pests, bald-faced hornets make their nests in tree branches or bushes. They are active from spring to fall, with most of their activity seen later in the summer or early fall as nests reach full capacity.

Bald-faced hornet nests tend to be larger than nests of smaller stinging pests like yellow jackets. However, just like yellow jackets, bald-faced hornets aggressively defend their nests against any perceived threats.

These insects are called pests for a reason. If you’re finding Indian meal moths, bald faced hornets or any other pests near your home in Hartland, don’t hesitate to give us a call and we’ll take care of the problem for you!
