northville 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.
termite control in northville
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.
paper wasp control in northville
Paper wasps are common in Northville’s residential neighborhoods because of all the horizontal surfaces they can choose from to build their nests on. These wasps take their name from their nests, which are made from a mixture of chewed up plants, wood fibers and wasp saliva.
Like other social wasps, paper wasps are very territorial and will attack both animals and humans they think could be threatening their nest. Paper wasp stings are particularly painful and can cause an anaphylactic reaction in individuals allergic to wasp stings.
northville mud dauber control
“Mud dauber” is a general name for solitary wasps that make their nests out of mud. Inside the nests, the female mud dauber places a paralyzed spider or insect next to each egg so that the new larvae will have something to eat when it hatches.
There are many species of wasps referred to as mud daubers. Some other common names are dirt daubers, organ-pipe wasps, mud wasps, and potter wasps. Mud daubers are normally either black or metallic blue in color. They may also have yellow or greenish markings on the body. While they are not as aggressive as social wasps like yellow jackets or bald-faced hornets, many residents still do not want these pests on or around their home.
