Common types of pests we treat in the area include:
Some of the other common Ann Arbor Township pests we encounter on a regular basic are ants in the spring and summer, and wasps and boxelder bugs in the summer and early fall.
ann arbor township rat control
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 ann arbor
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.
black-legged tick control in ann arbor township
Since the Ann Arbor Township area abounds in trees, most homeowners are lucky enough to be surrounded by nature. While trees are beautiful, they can also serve as an excellent breeding ground and habitat for pests like black-legged ticks (or “deer ticks”).
Preferring larger hosts such as deer, adult black-legged ticks can often be spotted questing on the tips of low branches, shrubs or tall grass. In this phase of their lifecycle, they are actively looking for a potential meal, and adults will happily attack both humans and pets.
Once females fully engorge on their blood meal, they drop off the host into the leaf litter, where they can over-winter. Engorged females can lay a single egg mass that is up to 1500-2000 eggs. Both nymph and adult stages can transmit diseases such as Lyme disease, Babesiosis, and Anaplasmosis.
ann arbor township boxelder bug control
Most visible in the fall, boxelder bugs are often spotted on or around windows and doors as they try to get inside Ann Arbor Township homes and buildings before the winter. During the warmer months they return to their host trees, boxelder trees or maple trees.
They first feed on fallen boxelder seeds and later move to the female boxelder trees or maple trees where they eat newly developing leaves. Because they live on and around trees, we often find boxelder bugs around Washtenong Memorial Park and Barton Hills Country Club.
