Common Pest Issues We Treat in Novi
Lakes, trees and vegetation contribute to Novi’s unmatched beauty; however, inherent in such a natural backdrop are critters. While it is typical for pests to invade general areas, it is still possible for one home to have a certain pest problem, while the house next door has a pest problem that is altogether different.
Therefore, as a Novi homeowner, even though you will not likely have all three pest problems that will be discussed herein, it is almost certain that at least one of them is causing you, or has caused you, an unneeded headache.
Common types of pests we treat in the area include:
The pests most prevalent in Novi neighborhoods are carpenter ants, wasps, and spiders.
House Spider Control in Novi, MI
House spiders are a common indoor pest in homes and businesses throughout Novi. “House spider” is a general name that can refer to a large variety of common spiders, including orb-weaver spiders, wolf spiders, jumping spiders and more.
While house spiders may vary in size and color, they tend to be colored in dull tans, browns or grays that allow them to blend in well to whatever environments they live in.
House spiders are considered a nuisance pest because nobody wants to see one in their shower first thing in the morning! However, they are actually beneficial because they eat more bothersome pests such as wasps, ants and mosquitoes. House spiders are not aggressive towards humans and large animals. Bites from house spiders are normally not serious and no more painful than a bee sting.
Novi, MI Carpenter Ant Control
Carpenter ants are another common indoor pest in Novi. While carpenter ants vary in size, they can grow as large as 1/2″ to 3/4″.
These large, black ants love residential neighborhoods because of all the exposed wood in decks, outside siding and inside houses (in areas like unfinished basements, wooden framework behind sheetrock, etc). Carpenter ants nest in moist, hollowed-out wood. They thrive in tree trunks and decks where a nest has been created for them either naturally, or by another pest.
They can cause serious damage to a structure over time through their constant tunneling of its wooden components.
Eliminate Decaying or Dead Trees
One of the reasons that carpenter ants thrive in Novi is because of the numerous wooded areas that it has to offer. Carpenter ants readily infest trees in Novi because of the natural harborage such trees afford.
As a result, homes with numerous trees in the backyard or on other parts of the property are susceptible to a carpenter ant infestation.
If you have decaying or dead trees or logs around your home, it is critical that you remove them so as to eliminate natural nesting areas for carpenter ants.
