Paterson Area Pest Pressure
Readily available food sources, human habitations, and a climate classified as relatively humid draw many pests to densely populated Paterson, NJ. From large mammals such as raccoons, possums, and skunks, to smaller pests like rodents, ants, cockroaches, and mosquitoes, consistent human activity in the area leads to infestations and the transmission of various diseases.
Hot, humid summers in proximity to sources of water invariably lead to mosquito problems. As Paterson sits on the Passaic River, high levels of humidity promote swarming behavior. Mosquitoes can carry various diseases harmful to humans. Since the city is surrounded by the Passaic Falls National Park, larger mammals like raccoons, possums, and skunks are also an issue. Additionally, such a dense human population leads to rat and cockroach problems. Both pests are associated with filth and carry harmful pathogens and diseases.
Clifton Area Pest Pressure
Located just 10 miles west of New York City, Clifton, NJ, is prone to pest problems associated with urban lifestyles. Pests often found in urban areas include rodents, like rats and mice, as well as a variety of insects, such as cockroaches, fleas, and bed bugs. Though Clifton remains on the edge of urban activity, the town is still very much suburban, and residents can expect wildlife activity from the likes of squirrels, raccoons, and possums. These pests occasionally gain entry into buildings, leaving behind a wake of costly damage. Urine and droppings from these vertebrate pests can create conditions which are detrimental to human health.
Pests can gain entry to buildings throughout the year. When the warm season fades into cooler temperatures, occasional invaders such as stink bugs, lady bugs and boxelder bugs will sneak into homes to overwinter. These pests can cause potential asthma problems for sensitive individuals if their numbers are high. Various spider species may also find a safe haven in homes during the late fall and early winter months. Pests typically active during the warm summer months like mosquitoes, begin to fade leaving the potential for diseases, like encephalitis, at a minimum until the following spring. Wasps and hornets that were rampant during the summer months decline in numbers preparing to overwinter and will start a new season when spring arrives. The cooler fall temperatures have now put the “Sting Factor” to rest for another season. Contact Western Pest for rodent and pest control services near you.
