Common Pest Issues We Treat in Salem
House mice are a common pest in Salem homes. In the wild, these mice live in open areas (hence their other common name “field mice”) but they are more than happy to move into a nice human house if they can!
Unlike a lot of pests, house mice are active throughout the year. We get more calls for them in fall and winter because other pests are less noticeable so people are more aware of mice.
House mice will eat all kinds of different food, but they prefer seeds, nuts and grains (or related products such as peanut butter).
We cover house mice on our popular Pest Free Guarantee™ seasonal plan. This plan includes service once per season for total year-round protection from 30+ common Michigan pests including mice, ants, wasps, spiders and more. Call today for a free quote!
Boxelder bugs mainly live on and around boxelder, maple and ash trees, hence their name. They are a common late summer and early fall pest in Salem.
Boxelder bugs hibernate over the winter, either inside houses or other buildings if they can get in, or in cracks, crevices and other sheltered areas outdoors.
In spring they emerge from hibernation and feed on boxelder trees over the summer. They like to eat the tree seeds, but they will also eat the leaves if need be.
In the fall, boxelder bugs gather in large numbers on surfaces with sun exposure, and then head indoors to begin hibernation and start the cycle again. It’s common to see many boxelder bugs around your house’s doors or windows at this time of year as they try and get inside.
