pests we commonly see in ann arbor

Thanks to our many beautiful parks and trees, Ann Arbor is a popular place for pests. Some of the most common pests we encounter include Indian meal moths, Norway rats, and termites.

Common types of pests we treat in Ann Arbor include:

Carpenter ant control in ann arbor

Carpenter ants are known for chewing through wood to build their elaborate nests. Many people believe that these ants eat wood, but they actually just tunnel through it and chew on it in order to break away pieces needed for their nests.

In order to avoid structural damage to your home, there are a few things you can do to prevent carpenter ant infestations.

These include:

  • Eliminate non-essential water sources in your yard and home

  • Trim trees and shrubs to keep them away from the home

  • Seal any cracks or openings around doors and windows

  • Store piles of wood away from the home

Because they prefer wood that is softened by moisture or fungus, it is best to monitor the wood surrounding your home and remove it if it is damp or coated in fungus.

ann arbor rat control

Rats are one of the most dreaded pests around. With the ability to squeeze through a hole as small as the size of a quarter and chew through glass, cinderblock, wire, and aluminum, rats have no problem making their way into homes.

They can potentially wreak tons of havoc on a home by:

  • Contaminating food by eating it, urinating on it, and leaving droppings on it

  • Spreading diseases and bacteria throughout a home

  • Chewing through wires, which can start a fire

  • Chewing through the structure of a home

In order to keep these pests away, seal any holes or cracks along the foundation of your home, store food in airtight containers, keep your home clean, and keep all storage areas dry and clean.

ann arbor indian meal moth control

Indian meal moths are typically found anywhere food is stored, especially grain and milled cereal products. Kitchens, restaurants, and cafeterias are common places we encounter Indian meal moths.

The adult moth is about one-half of an inch long with reddish-brown wingtips. Female moths lay 100 to 300 eggs on food material, which hatch into very small caterpillars that are voracious eaters. When mature, the caterpillars are about one-half of an inch long and may have a greenish or pinkish hue. Mature larvae are often seen crawling about on walls and ceilings, searching for places to spin a cocoon.

norway rat control in ann arbor

Often seen in the fall and winter, Norway rats are commonly found in basements and ground floors in both homes and commercial properties. Unlike roof rats, they like to burrow along building foundations, beneath waste or woodpiles, and in moist areas in and around gardens and fields.

In some cases of extreme, untreated infestations, Norway rats can undermine building foundations and concrete slabs with their burrowing activities. They damage all kinds of materials—including metals, such as copper and lead, and softer materials, such as plastic and wood—by gnawing away at them.

ann arbor termite control

When you find termites in or around your home, you need a team of experts on the job. Termites cause billions of dollars' worth of damage every year and have become homeowners' worst nightmare. If you find any signs of termites or termite damage in your home, we suggest reaching out to our termite control experts at once.

Signs of a termite infestation include:

  • Wings that have been shed
  • Swarms of winged termites
  • Mud tunnels around the base of the house
  • Exterior wood damage
  • Bumps in paint
  • Soft clicking sounds within the walls
  • Small brown or black droppings
