Pest control can take many forms, and for us, it's always about helping to protect your home and business. Choose a service to learn more.

Detroit Pest Pressure

Nestled in the Great Lakes region, Detroit, MI, has four distinct seasons. While insects roam freely during the spring and summer, they overwinter indoors or in protected outdoor locations when the weather gets cooler.

Fall Pests

In the fall, the following pests invade Michigan homes:

Asian Lady Beetles

These insects look similar to other species of ladybugs and range in color from yellow to red. They may enter Detroit homes in large numbers during cool weather to overwinter. If handled or crushed, an Asian lady beetle releases a foul-smelling liquid from its leg joints.

Box Elder Bugs

Box elder bugs have distinct red markings that stand out against their black bodies. The pests are prevalent even on Michigan properties without box elder trees, although that is their one of their preferred kinds of vegetation. These insects move indoors to escape the cooler months. Box elder bug infestations are harmless but bothersome for homeowners.

Warm-Weather Pests

Warmer temperatures bring more stinging pests to yards and houses. A few of Detroit's most common include:


Hornets are wasps that thrive throughout the spring and summer in Michigan. These pests can sting repeatedly and are more aggressive than honey bees. After about 10 hornet stings, some people who are hyper-allergic may have life-threatening reactions to the insects' venom.

Yellow Jackets

Also members of the wasp family, yellow jackets regularly cause more allergic reactions than hornets in Detroit. Typical symptoms include swelling, itching, and pain, though severe allergic responses to yellow jacket stings require immediate medical attention.
