Orchard Lake Village Geography and Pests

Orchard Lake Welcome SignAbout half an hour northwest of Detroit there is a city of water—Orchard Lake, Michigan. While most cities are made up almost entirely of land, this suburb is more than 40% water! But in between lakes, there is plenty of land to enjoy as well.

Orchard Lake is nestled between a series of lakes. It includes parts of Cass Lake and Upper Straights Lake. Of course, it also includes its namesake, Orchard Lake. This roughly 800-acre lake reaches a depth of 110 feet and includes Apple Island in its middle. Although now abandoned, Apple Island was once the home to Native American tribes and featured an apple orchard from which it takes its name.

The entire city of Orchard Lake is 4.12 square miles and about two and half square miles of that is land. The terrain is hilly and green, with plenty of natural spaces to enjoy. There is a 50 acre wooded nature sanctuary in which you can explore the many varieties of native Michigan wildlife and plant life.

Unsurprisingly, in a place with this many lakes, residents here may have some issues with pests, such as mosquitos. Mosquitos require water to breed. Particularly in areas with still water, they can become quite a nuisance. In the summer months, residents may be overtaken by clouds of these parasitic pests. When this happens, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us and we will send our Orchard Lake exterminators right away.

Orchard Lake Village History and Pests

The area of Orchard Lake Village owes its history to the glaciers. More than 10,000 years ago, the receding glaciers left their mark on Michigan. As they disappeared, they left a number of lakes in their wake. These lakes became the series of lakes around Orchard Lake Village.

After the glaciers, for hundreds of years this region was inhabited by various tribes of Native Americans. Evidence of their lives can still be seen in artifacts gathered from the lands around Orchard Lake Village. However, in the early 19th century, European settlers arrived and began to purchase the land for themselves. In 1827, James Galloway purchased Apple Island in the heart of Orchard Lake, as well as the surrounding land. He established a community here, which has since grown into the thriving community we know today.

However, there are a few other thriving communities at work in Orchard Lake Village. Like many places, Orchard Lake Village suffers from unwanted household pests. Residents may notice colonies of ants, families of mice or hives of bees settling on their property. In these cases, don’t hesitate to contact us, your trusted local Orchard Lake Village pest control specialists, right away.
