Common Pest Issues We Treat in Macomb
Common types of pests we treat in Michigan include:
Rodents: moles, voles
Carpenter bees are a common problem in late spring in Macomb, while mosquitoes are an annoying pest all summer long.
Macomb 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.
Spider Control in Macomb
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.
House Mice Control in Macomb
House mice are very common in Macomb because of its residential neighborhoods and flat, open areas. In the warmer months they can forage outside for food, but when it gets cold they have lots of warm houses to take shelter in.
In the wild mice eat seeds and insects, but they will eat many kinds of other food as well including human food, animal food and garbage from residences and restaurants.
Macomb Brown Marmorated Stink Bug Control
An introduced species from Asia, the brown marmorated stink bug is mainly considered an agricultural pest that can cause significant damage to farmers’ crops. However, it can also be an annoying residential pest as well!
In the fall, it’s common to see groups of these bugs around or on windows and doors as they try and make their way inside buildings to take shelter for the winter. Once the weather warms up, it’s common to see them around windows and doors again (but on the inside this time) as they try and get back outside.
These days, Macomb is thriving and is expanding rapidly. However, human residents aren’t the only ones flocking to Macomb. Common household pests like mice and stink bugs flood to Macomb neighborhoods as well, searching for shelter in homes like yours.
