Common Pest Issues We Treat in White Lake Twp

Common types of pests we treat in the area include:
White Lake Twp Rat Control
Rats are one of the most dreaded pests around. With the ability to squeeze through a hole as small as the size of a quarter and chew through glass, cinderblock, wire, and aluminum, rats have no problem making their way into homes.
They can potentially wreak tons of havoc on a home by:
Contaminating food by eating it, urinating on it, and leaving droppings on it
Spreading diseases and bacteria throughout a home
Chewing through wires, which can start a fire
Chewing through the structure of a home
In order to keep these pests away, seal any holes or cracks along the foundation of your home, store food in airtight containers, keep your home clean, and keep all storage areas dry and clean.
Spider Control in White Lake Twp
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.
Black-legged Tick Control in White Lake Twp
Black-legged ticks, also called “deer ticks”, are a common pest around the Pontiac Lake State Recreation Area and the Highland Recreation Area in White Lake Twp.
Black-legged ticks can live for several years and take 2 or 3 blood meals during that time, depending on whether they’re male or female. Females take one more blood meal as adults to get the protein and other nutrients needed to produce their eggs.
The most common places to find these ticks are along trails in wooded areas, or near the edges of wooded areas. While their preferred hosts are mice when they’re young and deer as adults, they’ll feed on most large mammals including humans as adults.
Homes with yards that border a wooded area and outdoor pets like dogs are the most at risk for these pests. Black-legged ticks can transmit multiple diseases as nymphs and adults, including Lyme Disease.

White Lake Twp Mosquito Control
Mosquitoes need water to reproduce so we often get calls about them from homes near White Lake, Pontiac Lake or other lakes here in town.
Mosquitoes are well-known for being able to use even the smallest amounts of standing water to complete their life-cycle. Sometimes they’ll even use hollows in trees that collect rain water!
While adult male mosquitoes live on plant nectar and don’t bite, females need the protein and nutrients in blood to produce their eggs so they definitely do. They are able to detect carbon dioxide and other chemicals that mammals produce to home in on potential victims.
Our Mosquito & Tick Control service can dramatically reduce mosquito (and tick) populations in your yard all summer – 80% reduction or more! Give us a call today and we’ll tell you about it and give you a free quote!
