Common Pest Issues We Treat in Livonia

Common types of pests we treat in Livonia, MI include:

In addition to mud daubers, other common stinging pests in Livonia include wasps, hornets and carpenter bees.

Livonia Carpenter Ant Control

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.

House Mice Control in Livonia

House mice are common in Livonia because of its older residential neighborhoods. Mice activity is more noticeable in winter because other pests are often not as active and mice look for structures like houses to live in when the weather is cold.

Mice like to nest in dark, secluded areas like the spaces between walls. They will eat many kinds of food including human food, animal food, and garbage from both residences and commercial buildings like restaurants.

Livonia Mud Dauber Control

Livonia has many forested areas so mud daubers are a common pest here, especially near Rotary Park and along the Bell Branch.

Mud daubers have an interesting life cycle and diet. In the spring, the overwintering pupae (cocoons) develop into adults. The new adult females build a nest out of mud and then begin to capture insects or spiders that they place into mud cell in the nest.

Eggs are deposited on the prey within each cell, and the cell sealed with mud. The larvae that hatch from the eggs feed on the prey left by the adult wasp, and then change into the pupal stage (cocoon) that overwinters.

Mud daubers are not generally aggressive to humans but they will sting if provoked. They have a painful sting like other wasps.
