Common Pest Issues We Treat in Orchard Lake Village

Mosquitoes

Not surprisingly in a city with this many lakes and ponds, Orchard Lake Village residents often see mosquitoes.

Mosquitoes need to be near standing water in order for their eggs to mature into adults. Mosquitoes hunt for food by detecting body heat and the carbon dioxide humans exhale. Female mosquitoes are the ones that bite, because they need the protein and iron in blood to produce their eggs.

Because Orchard Lake Village is almost half water, it is very hard to escape the mosquitoes in the summer. Don’t hesitate to get in touch with us and we can take care of them for you!

Our Mosquito Control service is a summer-long service that can reduce mosquito populations by more than 80% in just a week or two!

Carpenter Bees

Carpenter Bees are commonly mistaken for bumblebees since their appearance is similar, but their behaviors are quite different. As their name suggests, the main characteristic of carpenter bees is that they bore holes and tunnels into wood.

Young carpenter bees develop over the winter, safe in their tunnels. In the spring, they clean out and enlarge the old tunnels or excavate new ones as brood chambers for their young.

There are typically 6 to 8 chambers created by the female. The most common place to find carpenter bee tunnels is in the deck or the facia boards on the edge of the roof.

Paper Wasps

Paper wasps build nests under any horizontal surface they can find. Some of the places we find their nests in Orchard Lake Village are tree branches, overhangs, eaves of buildings, beams and supports in attics, garages and sheds.

Paper wasps are aggressive will attack people if they feel like their nest is being threatened. Paper wasp stings are particularly painful and can cause an anaphylactic reaction in individuals allergic to wasp stings.
