Title: Commercial Sales Inspector

Hometown: Avon

Drew W. Cowley from Cowleys Pest Services
Drew Cowley, an Avon resident, is a commercial sales representative. He is no stranger to the family business, and has been working for Cowleys in various capacities since high school. Drew learned the pest control business from the ground up (or from the subterranean level, if you include termites). He started like everyone else in the pest control business – working in the field as a technician dealing with insects, rodents, and wildlife.
 
As a commercial sales representative, Drew explains Cowleys’ offerings to prospective clients, showing them how Cowleys can help improve their bottom line. Drew is quite proud of the company built by his dad and uncle, and enjoys “spreading the word” and doing his part grow the business. For Drew, the best way to bring prospective clients on board is to educate them about the best pest control solutions for their business. Drew works side-by-side with his younger brother, Rhett.
 
Drew is the son of Bill Cowley. To avoid confusion with the other Drew, Bill’s brother and co-owner, this Drew is informally known around the office as Little Drew. This moniker refers to their respective ages only. In height, “Little” Drew has the clear advantage over “Big” Drew. Drew is a graduate of Rutgers, majoring in sports management, which merged his love of sports with his interest in business, marketing, and accounting.
 
Drew is a licensed commercial applicator, holding his core certification and a variety of category certifications. He is also certified as a TAP insulation installer, one of Cowleys’ signature product offerings to its customers.
 
In his spare time, Drew relaxes by playing all types of sports, especially basketball. He also loves surfing and appreciates living close to the ocean in Avon. If its summer and there are “epic swells,” Drew is easy to find. Just head over to the L Jetty in Avon or the Inlet Beach in Manasquan, and he’ll be there!

    Flying Squirrels Infesting Home in Belle Mead, NJ

    A new customer in Belle Mead, NJ was having trouble with flying squirrels getting into his attic and destroying his insulation, so he contacted Little Rascals and we were sent out to investigate. After inspecting the property from top to bottom, we determined that the flying squirrels were infesting the home via the attic fan! 

    In order to safely remove them from the home, we temporarily sealed off the attic fan and installed a one-way device in front of it. The one-way device will allow the flying squirrels to safely leave the area but prevent them from getting back in. We also placed several baited devices nearby. A short while later, we successfully and safely retrieved all the flying squirrels in the home, relocated them to a new, humane environment, and disinfected the attic area. 

    To prevent any future intrusions from flying squirrels, we installed an attic fan cover over the attic fan. This material is made out of heavy-duty 18 Gauge expanded Galvannealed steel mesh. This won't just prevent flying squirrels from gaining access into the home, but all nuisance wildlife, bats, and nuisance birds!

    Community Has a Problem with Pigeons in Freehold, NJ

    This community in Freehold, NJ was having issues with pigeons, and other nuisance birds, roosting on the backside of the steps on the main building. The maintenance team had tried to resolve the issue on their own by installing hardware cloth, but that didn't work.

    We carefully removed all the hardware cloth & nesting debris, disinfected the area, and installed Bird Slope. Bird Slope is a physical bird deterrent used to block birds from landing or nesting on open ledges. Bird Slope's unique angled design makes it impossible for birds to land or nest in 90° areas such as ledges, window sills, or eaves making it an effective bird deterrent against all nuisance birds.

    Dirty Drains Leads to Fruit Flies in Warren, NJ

    We were sent out on a service call to a business owner in Warren, NJ who was suffering from a heavy fruit fly infestation in his kitchen. As we inspected, we noticed that the fruit flies were hovering near several floor drains. We took a closer look and discovered that the floor drains were full of dirty, discarded food and liquid residue. 

    First, we treated the infestation areas with a fly bait to control the adult fruit flies. Next, we applied a liquid application in all the floor drains and then scrubbed them out with our heavy-duty scrubber. The liquid application removes the bad bacteria in the drain, which eliminates the fruit fly's breeding habitat. Lastly, we applied a bio-foam solution that removes the organic build-up, odors, and scum in the drain. Once we finished, we spoke to the owner and mentioned a few, simple sanitation protocols to prevent future fruit fly or other pest issues.

    TruSoft Blown-in Cellulose Insulation Installed in South Plainfield, NJ

    These homeowners in South Plainfield, NJ had a squirrel infestation in their attic. Fortunately, our Little Rascals team safely retrieved the squirrels, relocated them to a new, humane environment, and properly sealed up their entry point. However, as often happens, the squirrels made a mess of the attic. There were toxic droppings throughout the attic. When these droppings dry out or are otherwise disturbed, particles can become airborne and circulate throughout the home. If breathed in, these microscopic spores can trigger serious respiratory diseases. In addition, as often happens, the sponge-like attic insulation becomes contaminated from animal waste.

    So we removed all the old & contaminated insulation and then disinfected the attic. Once we finished, we added TruSoft blown-in cellulose insulation! TruSoft blown-in cellulose insulation has a higher R-value than standard fiberglass insulation, has the highest Class-1 fire safety rating, is resistant to mold and pests, and is eco-friendly!

  • Bat Removal in Asbury Park, NJ

    Bat Removal in Asbury Park, NJ

    While doing an inspection at a home in Asbury Park, NJ, we were approached by a frantic neighbor on the verge of tear. She said, "Please, sir, please. You have to help me. There is a giant bat on my back screen door, I've called 3 people to come and remove it. They all want several hundred dollars just to come out and remove the thing. I'm on a limited income and I don't know what to do. I just can't afford it." 

    Without hesitation, we put on our protective gloves, went with her to her back door, removed the bat, and gingerly placed him in the nearest tree.  We can't vouch for the emotions of bats, but he seemed as happy to be out of the house as the poor lady was to have him taken out. It was a win-win situation for all.

    She asked if she could pay us $50 because that's all she could afford. We didn't take a dime from her and told her that after that traumatic encounter, she deserves to use that money to go out for a nice, quiet dinner and calm her nerves.

    Cowleys is a business, but we've been working here long enough to know that we're also about doing the right thing. Her gratitude was more than enough compensation for the few minutes that it took to remove the bat. She told me that I was her hero. Before that encounter, we never thought of my Cowleys uniform as a superhero outfit, but right then and there, we felt pretty good about ourselves and were proud to be a Cowleys technician.
