Mice are the #1 Pest Control we deal with.
Mice can breed at the rate of 6-10 per month throughout the year (as many as 100 per year). Leave 50-75 droppings and 3,000 micro droplets of urine in one day. They also like to chew on wires and cause up to 8% of all fires in the US. They can squeeze through openings as small as ¼ inch.
Mice spread hundreds of diseases including leptospirosis, lymphocytic choriomeningitis (LCMV), Tularemia and Salmonella.
Rat infestations have been on the increase.
Rat infestations have increased due to many factors including warm winters -allowing continued breeding. These large rodents can build extensive burrowing systems, eat anything to survive, and are usually found close to their food sources -trash cans and dumpsters. Gestation period of 21 days with 6-10 per litter, a female can produce over 100 off spring each year.
Rats carry many diseases including Salmonella and Leptospirosis.
Three most common ants in the Northeast.
Carpenter Ants (Camponotus) become active in the Spring and remain active through early Fall.
Pavement Ants (Tetramorium caespitum) aka "the sugar ant" is one of the most commonly seen.
Pharaoh Ant (Monomorium pharaonis) are notorious for nesting in inaccessible areas.
Roaches can be a serious health hazard.
German Cockroaches (Blattella germanica) are the most common, found in apartments, houses, restaurants, and hotels -mainly seen at night in kitchens and bathrooms. They leave excrement that look like black pepper. The bacteria from their droppings have been known to trigger Asthma and Allergies.
American Cockroaches (Periplaneta americana) AKA "the sewer roach" prefer decaying organic matter, but being scavengers will eat anything. They are a sign of a dry drain and/or sanitary line break.
Bedbugs are an increasing health issue.
Bed Bugs are now very common in the Northeast. They do not transmit disease, but their bites often become red, itchy welts on skin.
We offer inspections to verify the presence and extent of infestations. Our specialists will inspect your property for bed bug activity. Upon completion, we will discuss proper treatment and preparation requirements so that you are ready for a successful treatment -and to reduce the risk of future re-infestations.
