The Fox River runs through both Green Bay and Appleton as it connects Lake Michigan to Lake Winnebago. To everyone who isn’t in pest control, all that water means industry, recreation, and beauty! To everyone in pest control, however, it means something else: all kinds of waterborne pests.
The local technicians at Plunkett’s Pest Control are proud to serve Green Bay, Appleton, and the surrounding area. We have the training, experience, and equipment to identify and wipe out any of the pest problems the Fox River can throw at you. Let us worry about the pests, so you can focus on the good stuff!
Pests in Green Bay and Appleton
Pests tend to be particularly prevalent in and around water because they use moisture to hydrate and breed. Mosquitoes, flies, roaches, and all kinds of other pests start spawning around the Fox River and then make their way into Green Bay and Appleton. Here are a few of the most common pests afflicting Green Bay and Appleton, and what we can do about them:
Asian lady beetles: Not to be confused with ladybugs, Asian lady beetles congregate around warm surfaces during the summer and attempt to access warm shelter during the winter. Plunkett’s can cut them off and drive them out for good.
Box Elder bugs: Box elder bugs are attracted to Green Bay and Appleton’s many maple and box elder trees. They breed in spring, spread in summer, and try to overwinter in homes starting in fall. Plunkett’s can make sure they can’t.
Earwigs: Earwigs, also known as “pincher bugs,” are a common garden pest. They burrow into moist topsoil and dirt near water, feed on roots, and sometimes sneak inside nearby buildings! Plunkett’s can remove earwigs and make sure they don’t come back.
Wasps: Wasps are opportunistic predators. They tend to build nests around Green Bay and Appleton to hunt the other pests Fox River attracts. Never attempt to remove a wasp’s nest yourself; leave that to the professionals at Plunkett’s.
