How does the weather in your region impact pest activity? Weather plays a crucial role in both targeting specific pests and choosing the most effective material and formulations.For instance:- Spring time can be rather damp and cool so we prefer a granular perimeter treatment, which holds up better in wet conditions, to help reduce ants and other crawling insects from ever entering a structure.- Summer service is a little different due to hotter dry temperatures. Usually a liquid perimeter treatment, applied around the foundation and under siding and other points of entry, works best as pests are actively foraging for food and harborage inside. Baiting is also effective treatment as sightings of pests, looking for food, we can provide the bait in specific areas where they like to hide.- Fall and winter as the weather cools rodents like mice and squirrels begin to search for shelter and food inside. While pesticide treatments are usually not required Our 25 point inspection targets points of entry and the exclusion and greatly reduces these pests entering homes. What are some of the most common pests encountered in homes in your area? Ants, crickets, spiders, bees, mice and squirrels! What is the most unusual pest encountered in your area? Ghosts Ants, which are not indigenous to NJ a customer brought house plants from their vacation home in Florida. Any tips for homeowners in your region? Cooperation with our recommendations is crucial in any good IPM program. To minimize the use and increase the effectiveness of pesticides we provide:Exclusion - seal holes cracks and crevices where pests can enter the home (pipe chase, broken vents, missing chimney cap etc.).Sanitation - keep clean to reduce food competition and pest harborage areas.Environment modification - changing things to reduce pest breeding and harborage areas (reduce measure conditions, remove leaf litter etc.).Following these recommendations along with monitoring and treating is key for a successful pest management program.

Egg Harbor Township, NJ, encompasses a total area of 75 square miles and serves as home to approximately 45,000 residents. The Atlantic City Airport occupies the northern area of the township, and several country roads, public transit routes, and highways also run through the community. Dense populations of people typically render an area susceptible to pest activity as a plethora of food sources, shelter, and water sources become readily available to insects, rodents, and other unwelcome creatures. Egg Harbor Township citizens must be vigilant when it comes to common pests like mosquitoes, ants, cockroaches, bed bugs, and termites. Contact Western Pest for pest control services near you.

Given the town’s placement in the Northeastern United States, Egg Harbor experiences hot, humid summers and cold, snowy winters. This dichotomy of weather provides perfect mating conditions from May to August. Once the temperature plummets, nuisances like ants, cockroaches, and mice seek shelter in manmade buildings and spread disease, and spoil food meant for human consumption. Mosquitoes are active during the summer, breed in standing water, and put Egg Harbor citizens in danger of contracting disease. Furthermore, with all the people coming and going in the township, bed bugs have plenty of opportunities to infiltrate hotels, apartments, and homes to breed and feed on sleeping humans.

Bed Bugs In Atlantic City

Atlantic City Pest Concerns

Warm, humid summers and a thriving tourism industry make Atlantic City, NJ, a prime destination for pests. In fact, insects and rodents alike benefit from the availability of food and shelter.

Ant Colonies

Ants are particularly skilled at tracking down a meal. They often move into Atlantic City homes to feed on pantry goods and pet food. While only a few species transmit diseases, their overwhelming numbers annoy residents. Ant nests in electronics or structural wood may also lead to issues.

The Trouble with Cockroaches

Unlike most ants, cockroaches carry all kinds of germs on their bodies. The pests transfer pathogens that cause food poisoning, like Salmonella bacteria, onto every surface they touch. Furthermore, shed cockroach skins can aggravate allergies and asthma.

Mice in Atlantic City

White-footed and house mice are the most common mouse species in the state. Residents typically find the rodents living in attics or between walls. Mice in the house contaminate stored foods, chew on wiring, and dirty homes with their droppings and urine.

Mosquitoes in the Backyard

While many other Atlantic City pests create issues indoors, mosquitoes are primarily an outdoor problem. These insects thrive in this area thanks to the humidity and rain. When the pests feed, they leave behind red bumps on skin. In addition to irritating residents, mosquito bites can spread diseases like West Nile virus.

Spider Problems

Fear of spiders is common and provides reason enough to want these pests out of homes and sheds. Many species also create sticky webs that give houses an untidy appearance. Spider bites are another concern, as venomous black widow spiders live in Atlantic County.

The Cost of Termites

Much like mosquitoes, termites flourish across New Jersey due to the moist climate. They can damage wood, leaving homes weakened. If termite colonies continue activity too long, they can cause houses to collapse.

For help with these and other insects or rodents, contact the pest management professionals at Western Pest Services.
