Bay Village: Tree City USA
The next time there’s a big thunderstorm in Bay Village, try a little experiment. Immediately following a storm, take a cruise through the neighborhood. You’ll instantly notice all the branches littering the ground. On the other hand, if you were to walk through a neighboring town after a storm, you wouldn’t see half as much storm damage. The entire town appears to sit under a canopy of towering trees. In fact — did you know that it is called a Tree City by the Arbor Day Foundation?
So how does this relate to pests? Well, for one thing — termites. TONS of homes fall prey to termites. Looking at our data from the last two years, most termite infestations that we’ve treated have come from Bay Village, OH.
Another nasty wood-destroying insect that you’ll find around is the carpenter ant. This is our most popular insect pest control service in town. When our exterminators come to Bay Village, 20% of the time it is to get rid of carpenter ants. It stands to reason that, with so many trees, you’ll undoubtedly find these big black ants hanging around, too.
While wood-destroying insects are a big problem in Bay Village, residents actually call us for mice than for any other pest. More than half of our pest control services in Bay Village is for mice. The landscape provides a great ecosystem for mice — there are so many tree nuts to feed on! Out of the 6 cities that we service, Bay Village has the highest percentage of mice. Luckily Bay has a separated sewer system. Unlike surrounding cities, there isn’t rats to contend with!
Diagnosing a mouse infestation in Bay Village is quite a fun adventure for us because so many homes are radically unique. The mice can squeeze into some funny spots inside these homes; we love using our detective hats to find every last hiding spot. If you find that you have mice in Bay Village, give us a call. Its pretty much our specialty!
