Whitmore Lake Termite Control
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.
Silverfish Control in Whitemore Lake
Silverfish love cool, damp, dark environments. Their unique name comes from their reflective silver or gray color and their similar shape to a fish.
Silverfish eat carbohydrates like sugars and starches. In homes and businesses, they commonly damage or destroy items made out of paper like books, magazines and photographs. They’ll also eat certain kinds of glue such as wallpaper paste.
Silverfish are mainly nocturnal, and active throughout the year. While they are an extremely common pest in small numbers, if left unchecked they can multiply rapidly in the right (damp) conditions and infest large commercial properties like entire apartment buildings!

Carpenter Ant Control in Whitmore Lake
Carpenter ants are a common pest in and around Whitmore Lake. These large ants can cause serious damage to a property by chewing tunnels through the wood that makes up its structure.
While carpenter ants like to start their activity in wood that’s been damaged by water (like the wood around kitchens, bathrooms, or outdoor faucets) they can eventually start damaging healthy wood as well.
Because they can cause significant property damage over time, carpenter ants are the most serious pest of any ant species in Michigan.
