The Effects on your Home

mouseInsects such as termites have caused up to $5 billion in damages to homes in the United States each year according to the National Pest Management Association. Rodents such as mice and rats can damage your insulation and wiring in your walls. Such animals are seen to cause many mysterious house fires. Damages as such are not typically covered by homeowners insurance policies which is why it is crucial to have seasonal inspections to save you money and protect your home.

The Effects on Your Health

Not only can pests affect your home, but also your health. Pests leave behind feces in your home which contaminates the air breathed in by you and your family. Certain pests such as mosquitoes and cockroaches spread illnesses such as allergies, asthma, and contaminate your food. Smaller insects can easily make their way through the cracks in your home’s foundation and carry bacteria throughout your living space. Rodents contaminate your home while searching for food. Particularly, mice dribble urine throughout your home causing any diseases to spread they may be carrying.

General Pest Control

We offer a general pest control treatment that is an application of a liquid sprayed around the exterior perimeter of your home. This is a knockdown of all insects and immediate population reduction. This treatment is for long-term residual effects. Pest control reduces health risks, allergies and itching, and leaves you and your family with a peace of mind!

Termite Treatment

While living near the Jersey Shore, the abundance of water local to our homes creates a nice environment for termites. Known to travel long distances for their next meal, termites will seek out and find a food source no matter what they have to go through. This means that many over-the-counter termite control solutions are ineffective. Though termites are small, they are known to cause destruction to your home. We offer an effective treatment to eliminate these hazardous insects out of your home!

Rodent Treatment

Unfortunately living near the Jersey Coast also means dealing with local wildlife. Each year rodents invade homes up and down the coast bringing bacteria into your home. Rats and mice prefer warm weather over the cold, which means with the warm weather approaching, these unwanted guests will come out of hiding. Our rodent treatment reduces the risk of destruction to your home and food contamination.

A home free of Pests, Rodents, and Termites is a cleaner, and more comfortable environment for you and your family. Each of these pests carry with them negative repercussions. We have several options fit for every budget to help keep these unwanted pets out of your home!
