The most common types of pests we treat in Troy, MI include:
Troy Carpenter Ant Control
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.
Spider Control in Troy
Venomous or not, spiders are one of the most feared pests commonly found in homes. From wolf spiders to hobo spiders to black widow spiders to brown recluse spiders to house spiders, these pests are never welcome guests.
Without professional pest control, keeping spiders out of your home is very difficult to do. These critters have no trouble finding openings into your house and making themselves feel right at home.
Spiders are drawn to houses that can provide:
Shelter: Spiders escape extreme weather conditions by hiding away in dark corners, basements, crawlspaces, and attics.
Mates: During mating season, males will enter your home in search of mates.
Food: Other pests are spiders’ main source of food, so they will come into a home if they know there are plenty of other pests there.
Bald-Faced Hornet Control in Troy
Bald-faced hornet nests are common in Troy. They’re often found suspended from tree branches or built on man-made structures like houses, particularly in upper corners.
Bald-faced hornets make their paper-like nests out of wood fibers and saliva. Bald-faced hornets are much larger than most other wasps, and in fact they actually prey on smaller wasp species like yellow jackets!
Troy Mosquito Control
Since Troy has its fair share of green spaces, it also attracts many other common outdoor pests like mosquitoes. Most mosquito activity happens over the summer, particularly around dawn and dusk, near standing water and grass. In Troy, mosquito activity is very common around Firefighters Park.
