Taylor 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.
Carpenter Ant Control in Taylor
Carpenter ants are known for chewing through wood to build their elaborate nests. Many people believe that these ants eat wood, but they actually just tunnel through it and chew on it in order to break away pieces needed for their nests.
In order to avoid structural damage to your home, there are a few things you can do to prevent carpenter ant infestations.
Eliminate non-essential water sources in your yard and home
Trim trees and shrubs to keep them away from the home
Seal any cracks or openings around doors and windows
Store piles of wood away from the home
Because they prefer wood that is softened by moisture or fungus, it is best to monitor the wood surrounding your home and remove it if it is damp or coated in fungus.
Boxelder Bug Control in Taylor
Boxelder bugs breed in their namesake trees in the spring and summer, and these trees are native to the area, making them plentiful.
During breeding season, they come together in large numbers, then swarm towards homes for warmth when the weather turns colder in the fall and winter.
Although they are not harmful to people, they can still cause a major infestation in your home! Our Pest Free Guarantee™ seasonal service covers boxelders, so if you’ve seen them before and you don’t want to deal with them again, give us a call today!
Taylor Slab Ant Control
Slab ants, also called pavement ants, are common in Taylor, as in many other cities throughout Michigan.
They nest in masonry walls, cracks in the pavement, house foundations and other areas where concrete is plentiful, and you’ll see them most often after rains in the spring and summer.
We see these ants in just about every residential neighborhood in the city, so call us right away if you suspect an ant problem. Like boxelder bugs, ants are another pest covered in our Pest Free Guarantee™ seasonal service plan.
