common pests in rochester

Rochester homeowners are no strangers to pests. The most common infestations we handle in this city include bed bugs, yellow jackets, and mosquitoes.

Other common types of pests we treat throughout Rochester and all of Michigan include:

rat control in rochester

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.

Carpenter ant control in Rochester

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.

spider control in rochester

Venomous or not, spiders are one of the most feared pests commonly found in homes. From wolf spiders to hobo spiders to black widow spiders to brown recluse spiders to house spiders, these pests are never welcome guests.

Without professional pest control, keeping spiders out of your home is very difficult to do. These critters have no trouble finding openings into your house and making themselves feel right at home.

Spiders are drawn to houses that can provide:

  • Shelter: Spiders escape extreme weather conditions by hiding away in dark corners, basements, crawlspaces, and attics.

  • Mates: During mating season, males will enter your home in search of mates.

  • Food: Other pests are spiders’ main source of food, so they will come into a home if they know there are plenty of other pests there.

bed bug control in rochester

Bed bugs feed exclusively on blood, so they are a serious pest that nobody wants in their home! They are tiny insects with flat bodies that enable them to hide in any crack, crevice, or fold of fabric.

Common bed bug hiding places include:

  • Bedding
  • Mattresses
  • Bed frames
  • Behind wallpaper
  • In picture frames
  • Inside drawers

Our Rochester bed bug control service treats these pests quickly and effectively with two separate treatments applied over two weeks. Plus, it’s much less expensive and much more effective than conventional heat treatments! Instead of letting bed bugs become an issue or an upsetting problem, give us a call as soon as you suspect a problem.

We are experts in treating bed bugs throughout Rochester, and we can give you a free quote over the phone!

rochester yellowjacket control

Yellowjackets are common summer and fall pests in Rochester neighborhoods like Stony Creek, The Bluffs, and Yates. These are not insects that you want to deal with yourself since they can bite, sting, and be aggressive towards humans if they feel threatened.

To remove yellowjacket nests—or any other stinging pest nest like hornets, paper wasps, etc.— we offer both one-time nest removal services and a year-round service called the Pest-Free Guarantee™.

Our Pest-Free Guarantee™ provides protection against more than 30 common Michigan pests, and it includes free stinging insect nest-removal year-round.

mosquito control in rochester

Mosquitoes are also prevalent in Rochester. These annoying bloodsuckers thrive in areas where there is standing water, such as the Clinton River, the pond in Rochester Park, Paint Creek, or the lake in Howlett Park. If you are battling mosquitoes, call on proof. pest control for expert mosquito control in Rochester.

Types of termites

Causing $5 billion in damage every year, termites are a homeowner’s worst enemy. Since they hide mostly in areas you cannot see, termites can cause extensive damage to your home before you ever even discover they are there.

The three types of termites include:

  • Subterranean termites: These termites tend to cause the most amount of damage to homes due to the fact that they form multiple colonies and can eat through wood at incredibly fast rates.
  • Dampwood termites: Since these termites feast off of damp wood, they are typically not found within homes. However, if you have leaks in your home, they can survive off of water damaged wood.
  • Drywood termites: Since wood in homes is dry, these termites are quite common. The damage they cause can be quite severe as they eat tunnels through beams, weakening the support in your homes.

Subterranean termites are the most common in areas like Michigan. Drywood termites are not typically found in this state.
