termite control in waterford, mi
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 ant control in waterford 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.
waterford twp yellow jacket control
German yellow jackets are often found in Waterford Twp residential neighborhoods, where they have many homes to pick from to build their nests in.
A common location for their nests is on a vertical section of drywall under the attic insulation. The workers chew up the drywall and mix it with saliva to make a paper-like product used to build the nest.
Like other wasp species, yellow jackets are aggressive and their sting can be very painful.

Black-legged ticks are one of the most common tick species in Waterford Twp. Preferring larger hosts such as deer, adult black-legged ticks can often be found about knee-high on the tips of branches of low growing shrubs.
