Spider Control in Highland Charter Twp
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.
Highland Charter Twp Vole Control
Also known as meadow mice or field mice, voles prefer the outdoors. These grey or brown rodents range from 4 to 8.5 inches in length, have tiny eyes, and have partially hidden ears. Because they do not hibernate, voles are active day and night all year long.
Voles are known to cause extensive damage to lawns, field crops, golf courses, trees, and more by creating complex underground tunnel systems. These tunnels have multiple entrances and can house several voles. To protect your yard against these rodents, you should keep mulch away from trees, keep your grass trimmed, and remove ground cover.
Mosquito Control in Highland Charter Twp
It’s an unfortunate fact of life that with all the parks and lakes come all the pests! As a result, mosquitoes are very common in Highland Twp because of the many water sources and open, grassy areas.
Mosquitoes need a source of standing water, as small as bird feeders or old tires, in order to develop from eggs to adults. Once they become adults they generally live in longer grass and bushes.
Mosquitoes hunt for food by detecting body heat and the carbon dioxide humans exhale. However, only female mosquitoes suck our blood.
Highland Charter Twp House Centipede Control
House centipedes prefer residential neighborhoods where they can live in homes with damp basements or crawl spaces. We see them often in older homes in Highland Twp.
House centipedes are generally not a serious pest. In fact, they feed on spiders, insects, and other small arthropods so they can often be beneficial. They can bite people, but usually only do so when handled or stepped on with bare feet.
Highland Twp is known for its wonderful lakes, natural surroundings, and recreational areas. Unfortunately, the pests like all these too!
