Termite Control in Walled Lake
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:
Piles of wood
Dead or decaying trees
Warm, dark places
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.
Walled Lake 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.
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.
Mosquito Control in Walled Lake
Because the city is surrounded by so much water, mosquitoes are a common problem in Walled Lake. Similar to dragonflies, mosquitoes develop in water and then leave it once they become adults.
Mosquitoes can use almost any amount of stagnant water to reproduce, from large water sources like ponds and marshes to very small ones like old bird feeders or tires.
Most mosquito activity happens in the morning or evening during the summer months.

Walled Lake Pavement Ant Control
Also called “slab ants”, pavement ants are a common pest in Walled Lake residential neighborhoods, especially near pavement sources like driveways and foundations.
Like other Michigan ant species, pavement ants are most visible in the spring and summer when young flying pavement ants swarm after rainy days to mate, and then the young queens go off to establish new nests.
Pavement ants earned their name because they normally nest under pavement or large stones. It’s common to find their nests around both concrete foundations and brick walkways in Walled lake homes.
