Keeping Pests in Their Place, Not Yours
Marquette is the biggest city in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. Founded as a shipping port on Lake Superior, Marquette has some of the best views of Lake Superior of any city in the Midwest. The city was recently called one of the best places to retire in America. Marquette’s many charms draw in people from all over. Unfortunately, they also draw in pests.
Any city near water is a haven for waterborne pests. As the largest city in the UP, Marquette tends to attract the most pests in the UP.

Marquette’s Pest Problems
There are a couple of reasons why Marquette tends to struggle with pests. First, you’re on Lake Superior: pests like mosquitoes and roaches live near water to stay hydrated and breed. The Northern Michigan University’s many movers tend to spread hitchhiking bed bugs around, too. Finally, there’s the UP’s unending termite problem, which reaches Marquette just like everywhere else. Here are some of the most common pest problems in Marquette, and how we can help deal with them:
Mosquitoes: Mosquitoes breed in sources of standing water, often near lakes or shady, swampy areas. Plunkett’s offers either one-time nest elimination or a continuous, seasonal exclusion programs to wipe mosquitoes out and keep them away for good.
Cockroaches: Cockroaches hide and breed in dark, secluded shelters near a reliable source of moisture and humidity. Plunkett’s roach control program can eliminate 75% of infesting roaches in one week and 100% in six.
Bed Bugs: Bed bugs move by hitchhiking on traveler’s boxes, bags, and sheets. Once established, they can spread very quickly. Plunkett’s K9 inspectors find bed bugs with 97% accuracy, and then our heat treatments wipe them out completely.
Termites: Termites require a constant source of moisture to stay active while they chew through wood. They establish colonies near water. Plunkett’s use Sentricon system to eliminate termite colonies permanently and make sure they can’t come back.
