About Us

Jim Zylstra started TuffTurf in 1994, having been in the pest control industry since 1985.  For many years, we told clients there was nothing they could do for moles except to go to the hardware store and buy a trap.  In 1999 a mole entered Jim’s lawn from the woods and started to destroy his precious lawn.  The mole had the nerve to invite its friends and relatives over to play.  Jim was determined there had to be a way to get rid of them.  He was right.  Jim was able to control the moles in his own lawn which is in the middle of woods.  Since he could now relate to the frustrations that moles cause home owners, TuffTurf started offering a trapping service.  We expanded the service by adding baits and repellents.  TuffTurf constantly evaluates the “latest and greatest” methods, but have discovered that what we are doing seems to be the most effective. Our passion for solving our clients’ critter problems is reflected throughout TuffTurf and all its team members share my customer service philosophy.  Our customer service is what has helped us grow by 10-20 percent for over many years.  We keep expanding our service area and growing in new markets.

Another popular pest service we provide is Mosquito Control for the Detroit, MI and outlying areas. We are committed to keeping Michiganders safe from West Nile and Zika viruses.
