Common Pest Issues We Treat in Washington Twp
Common types of pests we treat in the area include:
Termite Control in Washington Twp
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.
Washington Twp Vole Control
Also known as meadow mice or field mice, voles prefer the outdoors. These grey or brown rodents range from 4 to 8.5 inches in length, have tiny eyes, and have partially hidden ears. Because they do not hibernate, voles are active day and night all year long.
Voles are known to cause extensive damage to lawns, field crops, golf courses, trees, and more by creating complex underground tunnel systems. These tunnels have multiple entrances and can house several voles. To protect your yard against these rodents, you should keep mulch away from trees, keep your grass trimmed, and remove ground cover.
Carpenter Ant Control in Washington Twp
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.
Washington Twp Mosquito Control
Places with water in Washington Twp, like the areas surrounding Stoney Creek Lake, have a tendency to attract pests like mosquitoes.
These annoying pests multiply rapidly once they find a water source for their eggs to develop into adults. They only need very little amounts of water to mature and can breed in the smallest puddles of water, such as water in a tree hole. Most mosquito activity happens over the summer, particularly around dawn and dusk.

House Mice Control in Washington Twp
Washington Twp is a great place to live, but a common pest problem here is mice inside homes. The most common mice in Michigan are house mice. They eat human food, animal food, and any garbage or leftovers they can find.
House mice can wreak havoc on your belongings and contaminate any food they come into contact with, whether they eat it or not. They can also carry many diseases.
Washington Twp Pavement Ant Control
Pavement ants are commonly found near pavement sources like driveways and foundations. Pavement ants are most visible in the spring and summer when young flying ants swarm after rainy days to mate and set up new nests.
Once they’ve established a nest, they’ll forage for food on scent-marked trails for distances of up to 30 feet from their nests. These ants like to eat proteins, fats and sweet carbohydrates, so you can minimize your chances of pavement ant activity in your home by making sure not to have food sources for them easily available.
