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.

Job Stories From Cream Ridge, NJ
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.
