Pest Control Red Bank, NJ

With its historic buildings and riverside location, Red Bank is an idyllic Northeast city. Its close proximity to the ocean makes it a favorable place to live. Warm summers and mild winters lend to its appeal as well. The mild climate, humidity and water sources also make it appealing to many pests. Ants, bedbugs and termites are some of the most common pests in the area.

Ants

These pests may live in yards and get into homes. They can enter through the tiniest cracks. Ants may be smaller than a grain of rice. They can get into food containers that are not tightly sealed and make colonies under the floor or behind the walls. In addition to ruining food, some ants carry bacteria and bite humans.

Bedbugs

These are some of the most problematic pests in the country. They spread very easily. People can pick up bedbugs at hotels, offices, schools and even gyms. Bedbugs are tiny, flat, brown and round in appearance. They may have a reddish tint when they are full of blood. Bedbugs feed off of human blood and live in furniture, under mattresses or in carpeting. Since they can live over a month without a blood meal and are good at hiding, they are hard to eradicate. A telltale sign of bedbugs is reddish-brown dirt or shed exoskeletons. There may also be a musky smell near an infestation. Bedbug bites are usually in a straight line, and they are red and itchy. Scratching them can lead to a secondary skin infection.

Termites

There are several varieties of termites in New Jersey. Some live in the ground, in trees or in buildings. These pests also vary in color and size. Termites look similar to ants but have a fuller torso. They can all destroy wood quickly in large numbers. From trees and wallpaper to structural beams and door frames, they will eat just about any type of wood or wood byproduct. Drywood termites enter homes through doors or cracks in windowsills. Dampwood termites typically enter homes through dirt tubes on the ground or under the ground. Termites are small and may or may not have wings. Piles of shed wings, swarms, wood that sounds unusually hollow when tapped and areas of gnawed wood are signs of a termite infestation.
