Termite Control in South Lyon
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.
South Lyon 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.
South Lyon Bed Bug Control
Bed bugs have made a resurgence throughout the country over the past two decades, and South Lyon is no exception.
Bed bugs like to stay near their food source(s), so we mainly see them either on or immediately around beds. Their flattened body makes bed bugs especially adept at hiding. Some of their favorite hiding spots are mattresses, box springs, bed frames, picture frames and electrical outlets.
If left untreated, bed bugs can grow in numbers until they’re visible moving around during the day.
Our Bed Bug Control service quickly eliminates these blood-sucking pests in 2 treatments applied over a 14 day period. Our treatments are both more effective and significantly less effective than traditional heat treatments. Give us a call today and we’ll tell you how it works and give you a free custom quote!
Yellow Jacket Control in South Lyon
Another common pest in South Lyon is yellow jackets. These aggressive wasps are mostly active in summer and early fall. Yellow jackets can build their nests in many different kinds of locations, but one of the most common is in drywall under the attic insulation. They’ll actually chew up the drywall and use it to build their nests!
Large yellow jacket nests can extend past 10 feet in height. Obviously, nests this large will house many thousands of yellow jackets and can be potentially dangerous to any person or animal that comes close.
We provide one-time wasp or hornet nest removal services, plus a year round service called our Pest Free Guarantee™ that covers all wasp and hornets including yellow jackets, plus ants, mice, spiders and more than 30 other common pests.
