Frequently Asked Questions
Do you treat for bedbugs?
I have woodpeckers pecking away at my house, can you help with that?
The vast majority of the time woodpeckers are not going after insects in your home/wood. They are trying to attract a mate, defend/establish their territory and simply because they like the sound. You can try and keep them away from your home with reflective tape, aluminum foil around posts and loud noises. Remember, persistence is key! For further information, We suggest you call Lakeshore Wildlife Removal.
I see Bees going into a crack of my home, should I plug up the opening?
Definitely NOT! Plugging up the bees only entry point to there nest will trap the vast majority of them inside your home. Those bees will not just give up and die off, instead, they will look for another way out. Quite often, that way out is by chewing through your drywall and getting into your home. Trust us, you do not want that to happen. Give us a call today and we can help you out.
All of a sudden I see hundreds of flying "ants" in my house in the spring; what is going on?
More then likely, these are termite swarmers and not ants. Termites will normally swarm in the spring on a warm day after we have had some rain. This swarm will only last an hour or two but don’t be fooled, you more then likely have termites in your home. Call us for a free inspection!
I have a squirrel/raccoon/skunk in my house/attic/deck. What can I do?
Do you treat for mice?
I have boxelder bugs/stink bugs in my house, is there anything you can do?
Boxelder bugs will only enter your home in the fall months to try and survive the cold winter. If you see them in the spring, that is an indication that they successfully entered your home in the fall and are waking up from there winter “hibernation”. We can treat for them in the fall to prevent them from entering your home as best as possible. We do not treat for them in the spring as the problem almost always takes care of itself after a few weeks.
I have honeybees in my house but I don’t want to kill them, is there another option?
Flies are taking over my home, what can I do?
Usually a lot of house flies indicated a mouse died in the walls or attic and the only thing you can do is vacuum up the ones you can and they will disappear in 4-6 days. If they are smaller fruit flies and not house flies, the best and only treatment is finding the source of the flies and getting rid of it. Call us for more details.
I had a service for ants a week ago but am still seeing them, now what?
As a general rule, it will take 2-3 weeks after the first service date to see complete results. The ants will sometimes get worse before it gets better but know that all of the products we use are actively working to eradicate the problem. If after 3 weeks you still have more than an occasional ant, give us a call and we would be more than happy to do a retreatment.
It’s raining, will you still treat outside?
Yes we will! Unless there is lightning close by or the weather resembles a category 5 hurricane, we will still treat in the rain. Most of the areas we treat outside are under eves, decks and siding where rain will not affect our treatment. Plus, we guarantee all of our work so if you are seeing more insects then normal, give us a call and we would be happy to retreat at no additional cost!
