Our affordable superior grade pest preventative treatments give homeowners long lasting control and peace of mind from unwanted pest infestations.
Our state certified professionally trained technician will first thoroughly inspect your home for any access points for spiders and other pests. The technician will then treat around your homes perimeter, windows, doors, and other cracks and crevices to control and repel spiders, wasps, and other nuisance insects for up to 90 days.
Our products do not discolor or stain a home’s exterior and do not emit foul or offensive odors that do not stain any exterior surfaces and have little to no smell. After treating your home a technician will then thoroughly web sweep your entire home to clean off cob webs and other debris from your home.
Carpenter ants are normally large black ants with some brownish to reddish coloring. Carpenter ants are extremely destructive as they chew through moist or rotted wood. Carpenter ants normally represent a moisture problem and moist wood. To control Carpenter ants we use a “double tap” method treating the interior and exterior of your home.
Pro Pest & Turf Pros will start with a thorough ant inspection and then deploy a treatment to tactically terminate these unwanted guests. After identifying ant activity, our expert technician will deploy a tried and true system to eliminate your ant infestations by treating and baiting strategic areas of your home with only the best products available. Our carpenter ant bait is precisely placed through a syringe into cracks, crevices, and voids where pets and people do not have access.
The technician will also treat around doors, windows, and vents to repel and control future ant infestations. Ant treatments will also help repel+control many other biting and stinging insects.
We use the latest and greatest technology when it comes to eradicating roaches. And we don’t mean by smoking them. We use only the best cockroach baiting system on the market to stop infestations. We deploy this bait by syringe to treat strategic areas of your home where people and pets do not frequent or can readily gain access to.
Ticks carry numerous diseases and the most well known being Lyme disease. The black legged deer tick is the carrier of Lyme disease. Tick control is essentially gained when using
our mosquito control service,but, we will place tick tubes throughout your property at key locations for even more help at eliminating ticks.
*WARNING: PLEASE CHECK YOUR PETS AND KIDS OVER CAREFULLY AS BLACK LEGGED DEER TICKS ARE ONLY THE SIZE OF A SESAME SEED
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 who loves to add color contrast to your green lawn by adding raised brown dirt feeder runs. 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 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.
PPTS is your 911 for mosquito control. Our primary goal at PPTS is to use every weapon at our disposal to help eliminate or control these disease carrying pests, before they ruin your short summer.
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 utilize and deploy integrated pest management practices to help drastically reduce mosquito populations. Mosquitos that always ruin your fun filled activities, just enjoying the outdoors, or working around the yard.
Statistics show mosquitos carrying and spreading diseases are escalating and on the rise.
Reactive flea control is one of the most expensive and hardest in all of pest control. It takes longer to control and eradicate than possibly any other indoor pest.

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.
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.

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.
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.
