Top commercial pests in our area:

Q: How do the seasons affect pest activity around Mountainside?

A: Rodents are active pretty much all year, but we see more activity in the fall/winter when they are looking for shelter and food. Lots of ant activity in the spring, followed by bee activity in the late spring. This year in particular carpenter bees were very bad. Wasps are bad in June and July and pretty prevalent throughout the summer. In the fall, the bees and wasps become very aggressive for a multitude of biological reasons. Stored product pest activity starts in the spring and ends early winter.

Q: What are some common signs of pest activity around homes and commercial properties?

A: Droppings, holes, noise in attic or walls, saw dust, webbing (stored product pests), or just seeing them with your peepers!

Q: When should property owners call Western Pest Services?

A: Call us anytime. Inspections are free! For businesses, we can evaluate your current pest program and offer a competitive proposal.

We are getting more inquiries as the economy and businesses open about our Western PurClean™ disinfectant service. Mostly in food processing, offices, and county park systems, but we offer our disinfection service to all homes and businesses.

Q: Anything else to add?

A: A relatively new species to the area, the spotted lanternfly is also a problem around here. They will fly right into your head and can wreak havoc on local trees and plants. We can deal with them at every stage of life so don't wait with this one.

We have been customers of Western for 26 years and have been very satisfied with their services. Everyone we have spoken with in the office and among the field techs are professional, effective and friendly. Whenever we've had a pest issue beyond our regular inspections, they have sent a tech quickly who took care of the issue quickly and effectively. Ozzie has been in our home most often and we find him to be very professional, knows his business, answers any questions we may have, and is very competent. We highly recommend Western for both home pest prevention and termite inspection.

Common Pests in Edison, NJ

  • Cockroaches - These insects thrive in warm, damp settings. They sneak into homes and businesses through drains, sewer pipes, and small crevices. Cockroaches often spread the bacteria that cause salmonellosis. Proteins in their bodies and cast-off skins can also trigger allergic and asthmatic reactions.
  • Mosquitoes - Often found near bodies of water such as lakes and ponds, mosquitoes also reproduce in standing pools like those in birdbaths and clogged gutters. These small, biting pests leave itchy, red bumps after they draw blood. Mosquitoes can transmit diseases like West Nile virus through their bites.
  • Mice - Able to get into buildings through holes smaller than a dime, these pests cause problems for Edison home and business owners alike. They invade pantries and storage areas, contaminate food with their droppings, and can transmit diseases to humans. Mice may also gnaw on wiring, which can be a serious fire hazard.
  • Rats - These rodents enter buildings through small holes, sewers, toilets, and broken drains. Rats often make their way indoors in search of easy meals or shelter. In addition to contaminating food and surfaces, they may also bite and scratch when threatened.
  • Termites - A nuisance to residents throughout the Mountainside area, these insects feed on timber, wooden decks, fences, and tree stumps. If left unchecked, termite infestations can cause serious structural damage to residences and commercial spaces.
  • Carpenter Ants – While several types of ants call New Jersey home, this species is especially troublesome. As the name suggests, carpenter ants spend most of their time tunneling through wood to build their nests. Seeing piles of debris, also known as frass, beneath wood furniture or joists is a sign of infestation.

Pest Control for Edison Businesses

Whether you're a storekeeper in Edison or a property manager in Atlantic City, your business may be at risk for insect and rodent infestation. Grocery stores and markets contend with pests brought in through product shipments. Hotel dining areas and restaurants attract pests from food odors and leftover crumbs on tables and floors. Open windows and standing water also draw unwanted visitors indoors.

Pest sightings are bad for business. Unhappy customers can leave bad reviews, which can lead to a drop in sales and revenue. It doesn't matter if you manage a franchise or own your own local shop in Edison, you and your employees should be on the lookout for pests in these areas:

  • Kitchens and food storage areas - Many pests scavenge for food in pantries, kitchens, and dining rooms. You may also find cockroaches and other insects hiding out under appliances such as stoves, ice makers, and sinks.
  • Drains, sinks, and stagnant water - Many types of insects gravitate toward warm, damp areas. Drains and sewers are easy access points for rodents. Also, still water in birdbaths, rain barrels, and even large puddles in a parking lot can serve as a breeding ground for mosquitoes.
  • Open windows, doors, and crevices - Insects fly into Edison shops, restaurants, and other commercial spaces as customers come and go throughout the day. Trash bins and dumpsters often encourage flying pests to hover near entrances. Small insects, such as ants and cockroaches, often get inside buildings through cracks in the foundation.

Pest Prevention in Northern New Jersey

An effective first step toward pest prevention requires a proactive approach. While different species of rodents and insects have a range of attractors, there are several things you can do to help mitigate pest issues in and around Edison, NJ:

  • Keep it clean - Sweeping up leftover crumbs and using sealed food storage containers prevent odors from attracting pests. Clearing up brush piles in the yard and cleaning up debris around outdoor garbage bins deter mice, rats, and other nuisances from nesting and feeding near buildings.
  • Seal cracks and close gaps - Cracks and crevices in building exteriors give pests easy access to Edison homes and businesses. Repair foundation damage, fix gaps around door and window frames, replace torn screens, and take action when tenants or employees report similar issues.
  • Fix leaking pipes and faucets - Leaky pipes and faucets provide pests with a steady water source. Repairing plumbing problems and insulating water pipes encourages mice, rats, and insects to look elsewhere when they need a drink.
