Cape May Pest Pressure
Cape May, NJ, serves a diverse role as small, oceanside town and ideal vacation spot. Boasting a population of around 3,000 year-round residents, the sandy beaches, music festivals, birdwatching activities, and other attractions bring in tens of thousands of additional tourists and pests each year. Hot summer months bring an influx of mosquito activity, as well as the possibility of species like dampwood termites invading homes and possibly causing damage to the over 600 buildings in the town’s historic district. The New Jersey Department of Health works together with Cape May to reduce mosquito populations and the spread of various harmful diseases the insects may transmit.

Cold winters may also help drive pest populations indoors, as rodents, cockroaches, and other vermin may seek out additional shelter and food sources. As mice, rats, and cockroaches may contribute to the spread of disease and to structural damage, Cape May residents should take the proper steps to eliminate such incursions. Additionally, travelers may unknowingly become hosts for bed bugs. The tiny parasitic insects cling to clothing, luggage, and hotel bedding and may cause itchy welts and rashes on the skin if left unchecked. Contact Western Pest for rodent and pest control services near you.

Odorous House Ants in Cape May
At the Jersey Shore and throughout Western’s service area, odorous house ants cause big headaches. In fact, our Cape May, Egg Harbor, and Toms River branch manager, Phil Ziolkowski, says that ants are the number-one shore-area pest problem, “hands down.” (His team jokes that Cape May City is one giant ant mound.)

With colony size sometimes reaching into the hundreds of thousands, an ant or two in the kitchen can quickly become a torrent. Small in stature, these ants will travel for food, which may lead them right through your door once the weather heats up.

“I’ve seen odorous house ants travel well over 100-150 feet from a colony site to a home,” Ziolkowski says. “If they find what they want, they will establish a nest.”

Typically, odorous house ants nest in voids, which could be indoors or out. Here’s where expertise comes in. If the nest is outside, but you innocently use DIY baits inside, you could lead them right into the house. Ziolkowski notes that the biggest mistake homeowners make is waiting too long to call a professional, which allows the problem to grow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Glad they keep the Pests Away! Been using there termite service for 47 years and glad to say so far not a termite in sight. Started using the pest service two years ago to help rid downstairs of basement. They made them go away and not come back, so couldn’t be happier. Along with this service they regularly check our home for other insects. Been able to rid crawl space and outside bathroom of jumping crickets and although I really didn’t think I had any issue they have put out bait which captures spiders and also keep away what I call little sugar ants. They are always professional, put on little booties when they enter my home! And take their time doing a thorough inspection. Am very happy with this service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Customer Service On July 6th I had an ant problem at my home in Sea Isle City. I called the call center and spoke to Phil. He went out of his way for me and sent a technician within hours to take care of the ant problem. Phil and Western are a great company and definitely are customer focused. I would like to hear from your company so that I can have someone come out a few times each year. Phil told me a Mr. Devine would contact me with the different packages I could get to protect my home from any critters. Please thank Phil for me. He has gone above and beyond for me. Mr. & Mrs. John Becker

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy and will reccomend to everyone Many companies send people to your home and they treat you as: We know what we are doing and you just pay the bill. Not so here. Each person I dealt with talked TO me not AT me. As they went about their work I felt confident and assured. The effects of their work was noticeable with in a day or so. No issues and I am a hard nut to please. Hire this company, you will not be sorry. TY

Rated 4 out of 5 by from GREAT Tech, so-so scheduling Saul is the best tech ever. He's just an all around awesome person. I am on an annual termite plan so Western comes out once a year. I WISH they would be able to schedule it out ahead of time so I can plan to be home instead I always miss the tech and have to call them to reschedule. It's a bit frustrating and a waste of time for the techs and money for the company,
