Common Pest Issues We Treat in Royal Oak
Some of the most common types of pests we treat in Royal Oak and throughout Michigan include:
Rodents: moles, voles
Boxelder bugs get their name from the boxelder trees they live on and around. They are most visible in the fall, where they are commonly found on windows and doors of Royal Oak homes as they try and get inside for shelter from the winter.
Once spring returns, they go back to their host boxelder trees for the warmer months. They normally feed on boxelder and maple trees, but they sometimes also eat fruits such as apples or plums as well.
Cockroaches are a common pest in Royal Oak, just like they are throughout Michigan.
German cockroaches are the most common type of roach in Michigan. They are smaller than the native wood roaches, averaging about half an inch.
Cockroaches get inside through cracks and crevices in the home’s foundation, windows, doors or other entry points, and they stay in wall spaces and other dark areas.
Suburban areas like Royal Oak are often bothered by mosquitos in summer, but these pests can be much more than a nuisance – they can carry serious diseases.
Mosquitoes develop in standing water, so they are common near any standing water source. This includes everything from large water sources like ponds to extremely small ones like tire swings or hollows in the ground that collect rain water.
If your home tends to see a lot of mosquito activity, we offer a summer-long Mosquito Control service that will drastically reduce mosquitoes around your home during the months they’re active (normally May – September).
