Rodents can carry diseases.

Rodents can carry typhoid, dysentery, Salmonella, tapeworms, and rabies. Some of these pathogens may be spread as they scurry across surfaces in your home.

Do it yourself bed bug freezing?

While freezing can kill bed bugs, temperatures must remain very low for a long time if you are attempting to freeze large bulky items. Home freezers are usually not cold enough to kill bed bugs unless you set them to 0° F and use a thermometer to be sure the low temperature reaches the center of your item. Putting things outside in the winter time can kill bed bugs if temperatures dip low enough.It can take several days when the temperature is 0°F and almost a week when the temperature is 20° F. Also temperatures above 5°F will not kill bed bug eggs. You may want to consider professional treatment since bed bugs don't restrict themselves to the bed. They can be found in any crack or crevice around the room.Here is a good article that tells more about bed bugs. http://www.catopes tcontrol.com/conte nt/readMore1/infob ox/news/template/d efault/active_id/9  (Aug 7, 2013 | post #1)

Control Mice South Jersey

Mice can get through a hole as thin as a pencil. Make sure that all tiny openings are sealed up. Mice can enter through the connections behind the dishwasher, stove, washer and dryer. They crawl up drain pipes under the sinks and Where the water pipes and the wiring enter the house Keep limbs from touching the roof, and check for tiny openings in crawl spaces too. Check all over the outside. Be sure there are no holes anywhere. Mice can squeeze through holes that you may assume are too high for them, a mouse can easily climb up a vertical surface. If you can fit your little finger in a whole then a mouse will have no problem getting in either. http://www.catopes tcontrol.com/conte nt/readMore1/infob ox/news/template/d efault/active_id/1 5  (Oct 24, 2011 | post #1)

Pest Control South Jersey

FAQ - Flies Everywhere, where did they come from??? You don't mention the temperature where you live. Are flies still active outside? If so, have you checked around the windows and doors to see that there are not cracks or holes that they are using to gain access from the outside? Are there any garbage cans left close to an entry way or in the garage? Many people leave their garbage by an entry. Garbage attracts flies and when a door is opened they are attracted to the more favorable temperature inside. (air conditioning in summer, heat in winter) It's best if you discover the source of the problem and fix it. An indoor fly problem can com from a small animal carcass that may be in a wall or chimney. Your problem doesn't seem severe enough for this. Fly traps and papers that you can buy at a supermarket or hardware store can be helpful for a less severe problem like yours. If it gets worse there are treatments that are available to professionals that aren't on the market to the public. http://www.catopes tcontrol.com  (Sep 1, 2011 | post #1)

Ant Control in South Jersey

Many people use over the counter pest control products such as traps, sprays and gels to get rid of ants. What they don't realize is that pesticides are highly regulated. The products that are available to the public do not contain high enough concentrations of chemicals to destroy a large colony of ants. When ants are exposed to small concentrations of pesticides some members of the colony may die and disappear from an area. It may appear that the problem is solved but behind the scenes the weak concentration of chemicals has irritated the colony. As a defense, a stress reaction is triggered causing the colony to reproduce at a faster pace in order to ensure its survival. The ants may avoid the treated area, the homeowner believes the problem has been solved in the meantime the ants will appear in another location of the home. A single ant colony may have many satellite colonies located throughout the home. Often times a home owner may discover one of these satellite colonies, believing it is the main colony they again attempt to destroy it. If it is not the main colony, then once again the rapid breeding stress reaction has been triggered. Instead of solving the problem, unbeknown to the home owner he has caused the colony to grow. A cycle like this could go on for years when the home owner believes he has solved the problem and that new ants infest the home again and again when really all along one large colony is growing and expanding with satellite colonies throughout the home. Until the colonies are killed the ants will continue to live and grow in the home. http://www.catopes tcontrol.com/conte nt/occasionalinvad ers  (Aug 30, 2011 | post #1)

Wasps, Hornets and Bees!

How can you tell the difference between a wasp, a hornet and a bee? Hornets are actually a type of wasp. There are two obvious ways to tell a wasp from a bee. Wasps are slender and bees are plump, wasps are smooth skinned while bees will have hair. Another difference between the two is that bees will die after stinging. their stingers are barbed and will remain inside the victim as the bee tries to fly away after the sting. A wasp has a smooth stinger and can use it again and again. Wasps can become aggressive when agitated. It is best if you encounter a nest of wasps to call a trained professional to remove it. Wasps nests can be found in a variety of places, in trees and shrubs, in abandoned burrows, under eaves, inside attic walls, behind shutters and in the ground.
