From Our Website
Shoreline Pest & Wildlife Control is a Local, Employee-Owned company, providing both commercial pest services and residential pest management for the West Michigan area since 1990. Shoreline Co-Founder Daryl Andringa holds a degree in Entomology from Michigan State University, and continues to assist with any insect identification needs. All of our technical staff are highly experienced - some as much as 30 years - and are certified by the State of Michigan as well as the National Pest Management Association in Food Plant Pest Management.
Shoreline Co-founders Bob VandenBerg and Daryl Andringa served together as employees of a large pest control company for over 14 years. Together, they had built a strong, personal customer service reputation in the West Michigan Lakeshore area. But over the years, they began to see a decline in the "old-fashioned", personal approach to customer service. They longed to provide the high-quality service to their local customers that is so often lost for the sake of growth and profit. They decided it was time to strike out on their own.

Bees, wasps and hornets are social insects found in West Michigan and all along the Lakeshore. Many are beneficial for pollinating plants. However, these creatures can be very aggressive in protecting their nest. The following are the bees & wasps that people are most concerned about and need help with pest control; The stinging ones! The honeybee is one of the world's most beneficial insects. Many farm crops are dependent on pollination from these bees. The only problem is that occasionally they move their nest into the walls of your house.

There are about 50 species of termites found in the United States. The most common in our area is the Eastern Subterranean Termite. These termites usually colonize in the ground between the frost line and the water table. Mature colonies have 60,000 plus members that consists of workers, soldiers, and reproductives. Workers are about 3/16 long, creamy white with slightly darker heads. They construct the colony and forage for food. Soldiers are also creamy white but have a much larger and darker head and visible "pinchers".
This group includes a couple of ticks that are both annoying and disease carriers. American Dog Tick and Deer Ticks are common in our area and should not be taken lightly. These ticks are vectors of several diseases that are very serious. Shoreline's Solution: Treating vegetation outside the home where ticks reside will decrease their population. Also cutting down taller bushes and grasses in areas people travel will keep them form hitching a ride. Spiders are generally considered the good guys in the pest world.
