Sterling Heights History and Pests

Until the 1950s, Sterling Heights was predominantly an agricultural area, where rhubarb and other crops were grown. At that time, the area was known as Sterling Township. In 1968, Sterling Heights was incorporated as a city, with Gerald Donovan as its first mayor.

By the 1990s the city was home to many workers from the Ford and Chrysler plants in Detroit and the surrounding area. The city also became home to many ethnic Bosnians, Albanians, Macedonians, Croatians, Poles, Serbians, and Slovakians. Tensions were sometimes reported between the different ethnic groups.

With the change from an agricultural community to a suburban one, Sterling Heights saw a lot of construction. New building and renovations of older homes can displace pests like mice, encouraging them to find new places to live and reproduce. Mice can enter your home through very small openings, and they can be very difficult to get rid of. Call a professional Sterling Heights exterminator to address any mouse problem you may have.

Boxelder bugs are also common in the area. These bugs can swarm your home, then quickly disappear. Just when you think you’re rid of them, they come back again. They can force their way in through your window seals.
