COMMON HOUSEHOLD PESTS:

COMMON HOUSEHOLD PEST IDENTIFICATION

Our pest control programs are meticulously crafted with both your budget and comfort in consideration, ensuring optimal effectiveness. These programs are administered by well-trained, dedicated service technicians who prioritize delivering exceptional results.

Given that insects comprise the most diverse group of organisms on Earth, we have thoughtfully categorized commonly found pests in New Jersey to aid in identifying and addressing specific pest issues you may encounter.

It's crucial to note that pests in and around your property often signal underlying issues such as moisture, mold growth, air leaks, and odors that act as attractants, particularly in the crawlspace. Dark, confined spaces provide an ideal environment for pests to thrive throughout the year. Furthermore, the availability of food sources, such as overnight leftovers or open garbage cans, can quickly escalate pest issues.

To proactively manage and prevent pest infestations, it is advisable to have your home undergo annual inspections and maintenance. This proactive approach ensures early detection of potential issues, helping to keep pests at bay and maintain a pest-free and comfortable living environment.

Mice

Rodents tend to seek shelter indoors during colder climates.  They can squeeze through an opening the size of a dime to find food and shelter.  Once inside, they can contaminate food sources, transport fleas and spread diseases such as plague, murine typhus, and hantavirus pulmonary syndrome.

Ants

Ants are one of the most frequent and common pests found. These pests are persistent and often a nuisance. Ants find their way indoors in search of food and are commonly found in the kitchen, where food, like crumbs, is left behind. There are thousands of ant species that live and work together in highly organized societies called colonies.

Spiders

Depending on the species, spiders can be found in both damp and warm, dry parts of buildings.  Most species hide in cracks, darkened areas, or in shelters they make from silk.

Camelback Crickets

Camelback crickets are commonly found in damp, dark spaces, like a crawlspace or basement. They get their name from the humpback appearance, like a camel. These pests are attracted to moisture and eat fungus, plant matter, other insects, fabric, paper, and even other crickets if no other food is available.

WOOD DESTROYING INSECTS:

Identifying the difference between a common household insect and a wood-destroying insect is imperative.  Wood-destroying insects are alarming in a home inspection report during the home buying process.

 

When it's a buyer's market, meaning the housing market favors buyers when home prices are low, and there are many properties available for sale, a buyer may shy away from the transaction when wood-destroying insects are mentioned in a home inspection report.

 

Keeping your home free of such pests requires a professional service to certify that a licensed pest control company has administered the proper treatment. Crawlspace Solutions is here to help you correctly identify your pest issue and provide the appropriate treatment. Wood-destroying insect (WDI) Reports are available with a complete termite inspection service.

Carpenter Ants

Carpenter ants are found throughout the United States in a variety of species.  The tunnels they excavate in wood are clean, almost sandpapered in appearance, unlike termite tunnels.  Shredded fragments of wood are ejected from the galleries through preexisting cracks or slits made by the ants.  Carpenter ants nest in moist and dry wood but prefer moist wood.
