As this client in Cream Ridge, NJ, was heading to his car, he spotted several birds going in and out of a small gap in his soffit! He searched for a reputable bird removing company on Google, found Bird Solutions by Cowleys, and we were sent out.

As we inspected the property, we determined that the birds were infesting the home via the soffit-return. We even found a ton of nesting debris inside the soffit! First, we carefully removed all the nesting debris out of the soffit. Next, we disinfected the soffit with a solution that targets bird mites. Bird mites are parasites that feed on the blood of birds. When birds leave their nests, the mites are left behind without a suitable host for their next blood meal. They will make their way into a home, and once inside they will take over, climbing all over your walls, ceilings, and beddings. To make matters worse, bird mites are tiny and semi-transparent, so they are extremely difficult to detect. Bird mites are the main reason why extreme care is needed when removing a nest.

To prevent the birds from reinfesting the area we installed Ridge Vent under the soffit-return and then installed sturdy metal flashing over the soffit and the soffit return.

As we were servicing this property in Cream Ridge, NJ, we noticed a few European hornets swarming around the barbecue grill. As we got closer and opened the grill, we found a HUGE European hornets nest inside of it. The European hornets were actually nesting inside of the grill!

European hornets, also called giant hornets, received their name from its introduction from Europe into the New York area in the 1800s. They are much larger than yellow jackets and, unlike most stinging insects, can be active at night. Their bodies are brown with yellow stripes on their abdomens and have pale faces. European hornets have long bodies and antennae and have two pairs of wings and six legs. European hornets have smooth stingers, so they can sting over and over again. Their sting also carry venom that makes the stings hurt, itch, or swell for about 24 hours.

First, we injected a knockdown aerosol application into the nest. We then waited a few moments, and then injected a knockdown liquid application. Both treatments rapidly exterminate the European hornets. A short while later, we removed the nest and disposed of it properly. The homeowner mentioned that he will dispose of the grill at a later date.

After purchasing his dream home in Cream Ridge, NJ, this customer wanted our Attic Systems team to add blown-in cellulose insulation to his bare attic. 

So the first thing we did was remove all the old insulation and properly dispose of them. Next, we air sealed all the gaps and cracks in the attic, which will eliminate air flow between the living space and the attic, improving energy efficiency. We then placed several measuring sticks throughout the attic to ensure that the proper amount of R-value is added to the attic. Lastly, we added over 12 inches of TruSoft blown-in cellulose insulation throughout the attic. Adding TruSoft will fill the attic to its recommended insulation levels, in addition to maximizing home comfort for the owner. TruSoft also has the highest Class-1 fire safety rating, is resistant to mold and pests, is eco-friendly, and optimizes energy usage for year-round peace and savings!

Removing Lots of Bird Nesting Debris from the Soffit in Cream Ridge, NJ

After we safely and successfully removed all the nuisance birds from the soffit area of this home in Cream Ridge, NJ, we're now going to exclude them from the property. 

Before we do that, we had to remove the massive amount of nesting debris inside the soffit. So we carefully removed all the nesting debris and then disinfected the area with a solution that targets bird mites. Bird mites are parasites that feed on the blood of birds. When birds leave their nests, the mites are left behind without a suitable host for their next blood meal. They will make their way into a home, and once inside they will take over, climbing all over your walls, ceilings, and beddings. To make matters worse, bird mites are tiny and semi-transparent, so they are extremely difficult to detect.

Afterward, since the birds were infesting the home via the soffit-return, we installed Ridge Vent under the soffit-return and then installed sturdy metal flashing over the soffit return. Lastly, we installed Pest-Blok over the soffit area. Pest-Blok doesn't restrict the airflow to the attic, undergoes a silicone-protected polyester coating process that makes it last longer, and guards the home against nuisance birds, pests, squirrels, and all other nuisance wildlife.

Yellowjackets cause fear in Cream Ridge, NJ apartment development. | Yellow Jacket Nest Removal

I was recently sent to one of our commercial properties, an apartment building in Cream Ridge, NJ where we handle all of their pest control needs, including both preventative treatments and to handle any emergency insect or wildlife infestation. We were contacted by the property manager after tenants informed them that a yellow jacket nest had formed in a bush that was nearby a building. Fortunately, no tenants had yet been stung, and I immediately went out to resolve the problem and keep it that way. 

An active yellow jacket nest is an especially challenging situation where there is a high risk of being stung, even for a pest control technician wearing protective gear. Of all the different types of wasps, yellow jackets have earned a reputation as being particularly aggressive and territorial when it comes to their nests. These predatory social wasps can have colonies that may contain thousands of workers. Suffice it to say, of all the stinging insects that can invade your property, attempting to remove an active yellow jacket nest is not a good weekend DIY project. The risks are far too great without the right products and the right protective gear.

This particular nest was located in the root system of the bush with the path of the foraging wasps about chest high. Often, I can safely treat a nest safely without using a protective bee suit and just using the equipment I have at my disposal. In this case, because of the location of the nest, there was no way to treat the hive without getting in the direct line of a small army of angry yellow jackets. There was a high probability of being stung. These wasps are fierce defenders of their colony, and large numbers will swarm and follow an invader a great distance from the nest. Even when you are far enough away to no longer pose a threat, these insects just won’t stop. So, my first course of action was to protect myself as much as a could and don a protective suit. I was then able to the approach the nest safely, without the fear of being subjected to a massive wasp attack (there is always the risk that one or two of these relentless insects will find a way to sting you despite the protective gear).

I used a slow-acting non-repellent product on the nest that affects not only the wasps in the nest, but also the foraging wasps returning to the nest. This way, the entire colony is eliminated. I returned a few days later to give the application time to work. The nest was dormant and the comb was dug up by a wild animal that was attracted to the honey.
