The Ocean County area has a dense population and a warm climate — producing favorable conditions for a variety of pests. Houses and apartment buildings in the area also provide food sources and nesting sites for invading insects and rodents. The region’s temperate climate facilitates breeding during the warmer seasons and drives many types of pests to seek shelter indoors as the winter arrives. Stinging insects like bees, wasps, yellow jackets, and hornets can also cause problems when they build their nests in outdoor spaces near schools or other areas with lots of foot traffic. Homeowners and business owners in New Jersey both need a pest control company that understand the pests in the area, the area itself, and the pest treatments that will get rid of ants, mosquitoes, termites, bed bugs, and any other pest that may be bugging you.

Residential & Commercial Pest Control Issues in Toms River

Located in Ocean County, the township of Toms River, NJ, draws people to its many beaches. Between the constant flow of visitors and its waterfront locale, the area is vulnerable to a variety of pests that travel in with tourists, such as bed bugs, and water-loving nuisances, like some rodents.

Whether you own a home along the coast, a restaurant on the boardwalk, or an office in nearby Lakewood or Brick Township, you're probably at risk for an infestation. Booming commerce and heavier populations mean more garbage, which attracts insects and rodents looking for a free meal. When pests get inside, they can create big issues.

Common Pests in and around Ocean City, NJ

Pests can cause plenty of problems when they enter your home or business. Here are some of the most common pests you may encounter around Toms River:

  • Cockroaches - Cockroaches typically hide in the damp, dark areas of homes, restaurants, nursing facilities, and other businesses. These quick-moving pests carry bacteria that can contaminate countertops, pantries, and desks. They may live unnoticed in Toms River buildings for months.
  • Stinging Insects - Hornets, yellow jackets, and wasps are the most common stinging insects in New Jersey. Depending on the species, you may see these insects near flowers, trash cans, concession stands, and patio seating.
  • Rodents - Small, quick, and nimble, rodents such as rats and mice can easily enter Toms River homes and businesses undetected. Though these pests vary in size, they can often squeeze into openings as little as one-fourth of an inch.
  • Bed Bugs - These pests live and breed in places like furniture and mattresses. Hotels in the Toms River area are especially prone to getting bed bugs due to revolving guests who may accidentally carry these insects in and take them home in their luggage.

Pest Concerns in Toms River, NJ

From structural damage to health threats, pests can wreak havoc in Toms River homes, eateries, and offices.

Property Damage

Pests that eat or nest in wood, such as carpenter bees and termites, can cause significant destruction indoors and out. Decks, fencing, and gazebos are prime targets, as well as the wooden frames of buildings. These insects tunnel in and weaken structures, resulting in the need for costly repairs.

Rats and mice may chew through plastic containers, cardboard boxes, and other packaging in pantries, grocery stores, and restaurants. Contaminated and destroyed products increase food costs and waste, not to mention could make your customers sick. Rodents may also gnaw on electrical wires, creating fire hazards for Toms River residences and businesses.

Health and Safety

An infestation can also present safety and health risks. Sugary snacks sold along the Jersey Shore and freshly planted flowers in the backyard can attract hornets, wasps, and yellow jackets. These pests often sting when they feel threatened, causing painful injuries and even severe allergic reactions.

Many pests can also transmit diseases. For example, some rodents, such as the white-footed mouse, carry hantavirus. People can contract this respiratory infection by inhaling dust contaminated by droppings. Mosquitoes are another Toms River, NJ, pest that can spread harmful germs, including West Nile virus.

How to Avoid a Pest Infestation

The best way to escape the costs and dangers that come with an infestation is pest prevention. Some tried and true methods include:

  • Clean Up - Toms River residents can deter an infestation through thorough cleaning. Wipe down surfaces frequently and make sure to discard food waste promptly and in a sealed container. Additionally, don't leave clutter on the floors as it can serve as a hiding spot for some pests.
  • Look for Points of Entry - Repair and fill cracks in the foundation, torn window screens, and broken air vents around your property. Pests looking for shelter from the Mid-Atlantic weather often use these open spaces to enter buildings. If you notice any structural damage or suspect rodent activity, call an expert immediately.
  • Remove Water Sources - Inspect for leaky pipes, clogged drains, and moisture buildup, particularly in the basement. Pests in New Jersey often flock to these areas. Standing water, like in birdbaths or kiddie pools, can also draw insects like mosquitoes that will use stagnant water as a breeding ground.
