our mosquito control service,but, we will place tick tubes throughout your property at key locations for even more help at eliminating ticks.

If Myth Busters could do one more episode it should be about exploiting the myth that grubs cause moles and getting rid of grubs will get rid of your moles. Moles love to eat worms and many other insects and invertebrates.

There are 2 main mole species that love to “pop up” ruining all of your hard work and money you have spent into maintaining a beautiful lawn. The Eastern Mole is the mole that loves to make your lawn look like the Chicago O’hare runway with surface tunnels. The star nosed mole makes the large mounds of dirt you step on and kick around so your mower blade doesn’t become ad dull as a butter butter knife.

The star nosed digs deeper and therefore normally harder to control.

We use a 2 prong method of setting multiple traps to kill moles off feeder runs and commercial grade worms. We insert these
worms deep enough where pets nor people can get to them. We can also place orange cones over our traps to keep people and pets clear. Please call us to discuss these important factors.

Certified state technicians will arrive at your home and give your property a thorough inspection. After the inspection the technician will discuss the best program for you and leave you very detailed instructions before and after the work is completed so you aren’t left in the dark.

We use only superior grade EPA approved insecticides that won’t stain your siding and won’t make you run for the nose plugs. We use a class of insecticides which are the lowest in toxicity and are virtually harmless to mammals.

European Wasp and English Wasp

These are the two commonly found wasp species across the U.S. and the ones responsible for causing painful wasp stings.

Once indoors, they prefer to build nests in sheltered locations with easy access to the outside, such as lofts, garages and wall cavities. Outside they may nest in old rodent burrows, hollow trees and bushes.

Our technician will assess the wasp activity and nesting site and then treat according to particular circumstances. Normally with a pesticidal dust or residual insecticide with a knock down adjuvant for quick control.

The safest method for wasp and hornet control is signing up for our wasp+pest preventative service. 

Your local Traverse City wasp, yellow jacket and bee control specialists.

The Michigan bald faced hornet makes a nest like that of a large football. These hornets can sting repeatedly and are extremely painful, aggressive and dangerous if you are allergic. Preventative pest control is one of the best ways to keep these nasty suckers off your home and out of your trees!

 

The 2 most common yellow jackets in Michigan are the Aerial Yellowjacket and Ground nesting or Eastern yellow jacket.

The aerial yellowjacket queen loves to build her nest in wall voids, attics, and other voids or openings.
WARNING: NEVER CAULK A WALL VOID WHEN DEALING WITH WASPS.
They will chew their way through walls into your home.

The Eastern Yellow jacket will use rodent burrows to build her nest deep underground. These nest should be treated at night when most workers have returned and dusted with a commercial grade insecticide to ensure eradication.

What is Lawn Aeration or Core Aeration?

We use professional grade aeration equipment that can encourage a healthy lawn, either by rehabilitating struggling spaces or encouraging new growth. Core aeration is just another tool of the trade . Cores are typically two to three inches long and about a half an inch wide. Cores are extracted every few inches. These little clumps of soil are then distributed across the surface of the lawn. Lawn aeration is common practice in the management of a lush and healthy lawn.

We repair all irrigation heads free of charge if they are damaged from this service.

Why is Lawn Aeration Is The Key To A Greener Lawn?

As time passes the root system of your lawn becomes overgrown and compacted. Think of this congestion as a barrier that’s preventing all of the nutrients and benefits of water and airflow to circulate into the soil layer. Regularly scheduled aeration is the best way to encourage deep-penetrating air circulation that can build pathways that create access to water.

Lawn aerations is also the best way to get the most out of fertilizing, irrigation and overseeding. Core aerations can help fertilizer applications work their way deeper into the soil without being blocked by a compacted root system.

Our fall aeration overseeding service is the only way to go for a thicker, healthier, greener lawn.
