grosse pointe charter twp 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 grosse pointe charter 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 t heir 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.
grosse pointe charter 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
- 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.
carpenter bee control in grosse pointe charter twp
Grosse Pointe residents often come across carpenter bees because they love residential neighborhoods and the plentiful nesting sites they provide. Common nesting sites for carpenter bees include eaves, window trim, facia boards, siding, wooden shakes, decks and outdoor furniture.
Carpenter bee nests are tunnels that they bore into wood and then divide into multiple chambers. Inside each chamber in a carpenter bee tunnel is an egg and a mixture of pollen and regurgitated nectar, which serves as food for the larvae once it hatches.
Carpenter bees develop over the winter in their tunnel nests and then emerge in the spring. After mating in the spring, they clean out and enlarge the old tunnels they hibernated in through the winter or they excavate new ones as brood chambers for their young.

grosse pointe charter twp pavement ant control
Pavement ants, also called “slab ants”, are found near pavement sources like driveways and foundations. Pavement ants are fond of foods that include protein, fat or sugar.
Common natural items in their diet are insects and seeds, and common human foods they’ll eat include honey, bread, meats, nuts and cheese.
Although most of us can’t control the pavement around our home, minimizing their food opportunities helps reduce the chances of pavement ants showing up uninvited and turning into a real pest problem.
paper wasp control in grosse pointe charter twp
Paper wasps get their name from their nests, which are made from plant stem pieces and fibers of dead wood. They mix those together with their saliva to form a brown paper-like material that they use to construct their nest.
Paper wasp nests are common in Grosse Pointe because they like to build their nests on horizontal surfaces, and houses and other human structures have all kinds of those! Paper wasps are very territorial and will attack people if they believe their nest is threatened.
