We provide the Cape May area with top-notch pest control.
The Cape May area is the perfect vacation spot. The town's sandy beaches, music festivals, birdwatching activities, and other attractions bring in tens of thousands of tourists (and pests) each year. The hot summer bring lots of mosquito activity, as well as the possibility of termites invading homes and causing damage to the over 600 buildings in the town’s historic district. The New Jersey Department of Health works together with the Cape May area to reduce mosquito populations and the spread of various harmful diseases the insects may transmit.
Cold winters can also bring pest populations indoors — that means rodents and cockroaches may seek shelter in your home. Additionally, travelers coming for vacation in the Cape May area can unknowingly become hosts for bed bugs. The insects cling to clothing, luggage, and hotel bedding and may cause itchy welts and rashes on the skin if left unchecked.
