Clarkston Geography and Pests

Clarkston Welcome SignThe City of the Village of Clarkston is a small city, just a half square mile in area, that is completely surrounded by Independence Township. It is located in Oakland County, about 40 miles north of Detroit. According to the 2010 US Census, the city was comprised of 402 households that included 882 residents.

The city has a climate that features four distinct seasons, with warm summers but very cold winters. The average high temperature in July is 83 degrees Fahrenheit, and the average low temperature in January is 16 degrees. In summer, with the warm temperatures and sometimes humid weather, residents of Clarkston are bothered by mosquitoes. These pesky insects are often considered a mere nuisance but they can actually be quite dangerous as they can carry several serious diseases. As a local Clarkston pest control company, we can keep your yard free from mosquitoes and safeguard your family.

Carpenter ants can be a problem for homeowners. They chew on old and damp wood and are often found on or near outside decks and patios. They don’t eat wood like termites do, but they can still be a problem. If they enter your home, they are often found in the kitchen or bathroom. Get rid of these ‘big black ants’ once and for all by calling a Clarkston exterminator to take care of them. We have plenty of experience eradicating these troublesome bugs from Clarkston homes.

It was designated as a Michigan State Historic Site in 1976 and was listed on the National Register of Historic Places as of 1979. The village was incorporated as a city in 1992.

The Clarkson Village Historic District is comprised of Clarkston Road, Buffalo Street, Church Street, Depot Road, Holcomb Street, Miller Road, Washington Street, Waldon Road, and Main Street (Route M-15).

Well-known residents of Clarkston and Independence Township include actress Valerie Bertinelli, industrialist and Ford Motor Company founder Henry Ford, musician Kid Rock, and several professional athletes, including Brandon Gentile, professional hockey player, professional basketball players Scott Kamieniecki and Tim McCormick, and Steve Howe, Major League Baseball pitcher.

Henry Ford had a weekend cottage and summer home on Main Street in Clarkston. He also owned a mill that was located on and got its water from Mill Pond. The building where Ford’s mill stood has been renovated into a small shopping mall that includes office space and art galleries. Henry Ford also bought an old school building, which he converted into an apprentice school on North Main Street.
