Common Pest Issues We Treat in Lathrup Village
Common types of pests we treat in Lathrup Village, MI include:
Carpenter Ant Control in Lathrup Village
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.
Lathrup Village Spider Control
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.
Termite Control in Lathrup Village
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.
Lathrup Village Bald-Faced Hornet Control
Like most places, Lathrup Village is home to stinging insects such as bald-faced hornets. They are common in both rural and urban areas and make their nests in trees. The nests hang suspended from low-hanging branches or bushes.
Bald-faced hornets construct their paper-like nests out of wood fibers and saliva. Unlike paper wasp nests, however, bald-faced hornet nests can grow to extreme sizes, sometimes becoming larger than a football.
Homeowners in Lathrup Village should be watchful of bald-faced hornets, especially when their nests are largest in summer and fall.
If you spot a hornet nest in your yard, give us a call today! We offer both one-time wasp and hornet nest removal services, plus a year-round plan called the Pest Free Guarantee™, which provides full protection all year against more than 30 Michigan pests including hornets and wasps.
Yellow Jacket Control in Lathrup Village
Yellow jackets love residential neighborhoods like those in Lathrup Village because they have many houses to pick from to build their nests in.
Yellow jackets build large complex nests in wall cavities and ceilings that can reach up to 12 feet in length! The workers chew up drywall and mix it with their saliva to make a paper-like product used to build the nest.
Like bald-faced hornets, these aggressive wasps will defend their nests from any perceived threats.

German cockroaches are very common in residential and commercial buildings in Lathrup Village (and throughout Michigan). German roaches are even capable of large-scale infestations of whole apartment complexes and high-rise buildings! Unlike a lot of pests, they are active year-round since they stay mainly indoors.
Don’t let these pesky roaches take up residence in your home. Our Roach Control services can get them out and keep them out. Give us a call today to learn more and get a fast, free quote!
