Common Pest Issues We Treat in Oakland Twp

Common types of pests we treat throughout Michigan include:

Oakland Twp Termite Control

Costing billions of dollars’ worth of damage each year, termites are every homeowner’s worst nightmare. Since they are often hidden away within the structure of a home, they can be there for years before a homeowner finally discovers them. The three types of termites are subterranean, drywood, and dampwood. All in search of wood, termites have the potential to cause extensive, irreversible damage to your home.

Things that attract termites include:

  • Excess foliage

  • Piles of wood

  • Dead or decaying trees

  • Mulch

  • Cellulose material

  • Clogged gutters

  • Warm, dark places

  • Moist soil

If you notice winged ants, mud tubes, wings that have been shed, or structural damage to your home, you might be facing a termite infestation.

Rat Control in Oakland Twp

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.

Boxelder Bug Control in Oakland Twp

Boxelder bugs are named for the boxelder trees they live on and around. During the warmer months, they first feed on fallen boxelder seeds and later move to the female boxelder trees or maple trees where they eat newly developing leaves. Occasionally, boxelder bugs will feed on plums or apples.

Oakland Twp Mosquito Control

Particularly in the warm humid months, Oakland Twp residents may have issues with clouds of mosquitoes. Mosquitoes can be found anywhere stagnant water meets warm weather. In Oakland Twp, we often find mosquitoes around Cranberry Lake Park, Lost Lake Nature Park, and the Bald Mountain State Recreation Area.

Carpenter Ant Control in Oakland Twp

Carpenter ants are common in Oakland Charter Township. They mainly build their nests in wood that’s have been wet or damaged by mold, but they can also chew tunnels or nests in undamaged wood as well.

Carpenter ants can cause a lot of damage through their nest building, with the potential to weaken not just trim or decorative parts of your home but the structural frame as well.
