Rochester Hills, MI History, and Pests

Before European settlers moved to the Rochester Hills area, the Pottawatomi, native American people inhabited the land. They resided in the area until 1807. That’s when the Treaty of Detroit was signed. The first European settler named James Graham reached the Rochester area in 1817 after following trails that were once created by the Sauk group of Native Americans.

The present City of Rochester was formerly known as Avon Charter Township. Voters approved of the name Rochester Hills because of the region’s historical connection with Rochester and the hills that abound in the area.

The residents of the Rochester Hills are educated, and they’re proud of their homes and community. Numerous companies have established their headquarters in this city. These companies belong to a broad range of industries including computer technology, precision machine tool fabrication, plastic injection molding and more.

Some of the most commonly seen pests in the Rochester Hills area include wasps and bees, ants, and roaches.

  • Wasps and Bees: Bees pollinate crops and plants, so they’re not considered pests. Africanized honey bees may have to be professionally removed if they don’t relocate on their own. They’re much more than regular honey bees and may sting en masse if they feel threatened. Another pest to be wary of is yellow jacket wasps. They can build their nests anywhere from in the ground to up in eaves and rafters, and they aggressively defend their nests from predators.
  • Carpenter Ants and Other Ants: There are many different species of ants but the two most common ones that can become problems are carpenter ants and pavement ants. Carpenter ants don’t actually eat wood but they chew it and make their nests in it. Over time they can cause significant damage. Pavement ants generally come into houses through cracks in the foundation.
  • Cockroaches: Roaches carry many bacteria and viruses, and they look for unhygienic or dark places to hide. Wood roaches prefer living around wood so they’re often brought into houses with firewood.
