If you live in the Paramus area, you've probably dealt with a pest issue at some point. Pest control from Western can take care of them! Bees, wasps, hornets, and yellow jackets are always a problem — harassing anyone that comes anywhere near their nests. Another insect that can cause problems for homeowners and farmers alike is the invasive stink bug. Like other plant-feeding insects in Paramus, the stink bug can quickly damage plant populations. New Jersey inhabitants should also remain alert for mosquitoes, which can quickly breed in contained water sources such as flower pots, tin cans, and used tires.

During colder months, rodents may enter the town’s homes by squeezing through small holes and crevices that develop over time. Whether it's a bug or a critter, our team is standing by to get it out. Let's get to work – the trusted pest control exterminator you is just a phone call away.

Chris was very polite and courteous, and took the time to go throughout the nooks and crannies to make sure to post the traps where they were needed. Very happy with the work performed

I have had a termite service contract with this Paramus location for many years since we experienced an infestation more than 20 years ago. I have always found every employee I encountered, including the office staff, to be extremely knowledgeable, efficient, professional, courteous and super-pleasant. The latest inspection was done by a young man named Reo and the re-treatment was performed yesterday by Supervisor, Chris, both of whom were positivelly delightful. I heartily recommend this particular business to anyone in the area in need of pest extermination service.

I work at a property in Edgewater NJ and Miguel is our weekly technician who comes out for a building inspection and apartment requests. He is easily one of the best technicians I've had the pleasure to work with. He is great at communicating with the leasing office team, and goes above and beyond for residents when inside their apartments. It's very important for me to be able to explain to my residents the procedures that Western will be taking in their apartment, and Miguel has always been extremely helpful in making sure I am equipped with answers to any questions residents may have. Thank you Miguel, you're the best!

Our technician, Ed, has been great in communicating his findings and service. Any traps that have been changed or damaged, he notifies management promptly. When requested to do specific services, you can expect it to happen by the next visit. He has been very helpful with any concerns that we have, and updates the Pest Control binder regularly.

Residential & Commercial Pest Control Issues in Paterson

As one of the most densely populated places in the state, Paterson, NJ, has plenty of residences and businesses to attract pests looking for food or shelter. Unfortunately, aging and historic buildings that pre-date modern pest prevention make it even easier for insects and rodents to move in and take hold.

Paterson's proximity to New York City can also affect the number of local pests. Workers who commute to the Big Apple might bring home an infestation when certain insects, such as bed bugs, hitch a ride. The area is also adjacent to dozens of lakes, making it a prime target for water-loving nuisances.

Residents, business owners, and property managers in Paterson, Clifton, and Paramus should be on the lookout for pests. These insects and rodents can damage structures and cause illnesses. Check out this breakdown of pests found in the area, how to avoid infestations, and what to do if you have one.

Common Pests in Paterson Homes and Businesses

Whether they cause property damage, health issues, or they're just plain unsettling, insects and rodents can cause several problems for Paterson citizens. Here are a few of the most common pests you may come across:

  • Ants are a problem for many home and business owners near Paterson, especially in urban areas. Black carpenter ants are troublesome, as they can cause structural harm by chewing their way into wood to make nests.
  • Termite colonies can cause issues when these insects eat wooden framework, drywall, and other materials. These pests can live in the ground or in buildings undetected for quite some time, resulting in the need for thousands of dollars in repairs before you even know you have a problem.
  • Mosquitoes thrive during the warm and wet months. In addition to causing itching, in rare cases their bites can transmit diseases like malaria, dengue fever, and even West Nile virus.
  • Cockroach infestations are also common in cities such as Paterson. The brown, flat-bodied insects can crawl in through narrow cracks in walls and foundation. This pest can contaminate food and surfaces with germs that cause illnesses, as well as trigger allergies and asthma in some people.
  • Bed bugs also create difficulties for residents and businesses. They enter buildings by clinging onto clothes and furniture to travel from one place to another. Because of this, hotels and second-hand stores are especially vulnerable. Although they do not cause infections, bed bugs can leave irritating bites on the skin.
  • Rodent infestations happen wherever they can find an easy food source, like home pantries and restaurant stock rooms. Rats and mice are dangerous because some species can spread harmful diseases such as hantavirus, salmonellosis, and many others.

New Pest Problems in New Jersey

In recent years, two invasive pests have begun to cause problems for the citizens of New Jersey. The spotted lanternfly and Asian longhorned beetle both attack plants, causing major damage. They can affect the trees that line the street, the flowerbeds in front of your home, or your backyard garden.

These pests reproduce rapidly, spread quickly, and hurt plant populations throughout the area – especially fruit trees, vines, and bushes. If you think you've seen these insects around your home or business, it's best to call a pest control professional as soon as possible to address the issue.

Avoiding Infestations

Moisture attracts insects and rodents, so Paterson business operators and homeowners should always repair leaks and wipe up excess liquids to reduce the likelihood of a pest infestation. You should also check under stairs, sinks, and other damp or sheltered places. To ward off mosquitoes, drain and maintain containers that hold standing water like flower pots and birdbaths.

Cleanliness is key to keeping pests away. Sweep up crumbs or spills to remove potential food sources. You should also clean up clutter where mice may move in. Finally, tidy up any debris around the exterior to prevent animals from nesting or burrowing around or into your home.

One of the most important ways to keep pests out is to close up any cracks on the outside of your building. Make sure doors and windows seal tightly and screens are free of tears or holes. Inspect everywhere that utility pipes and wires connect to the building and fill all cracks to prevent entry.

What to Do If You Have a Pest Problem in Paterson

If you suspect you have an infestation of any kind, you should contact a trustworthy pest removal company like Western Pest Services. Our expert technicians can investigate your property and come up with a plan to effectively rid your Paterson, New Jersey, home or business of pests.
