Termites Dining on the Side of the Home in Hightstown, NJ

Recently, we were sent out to the home of a new customer in Hightstown, NJ, to treat for termites. We found the activity on the exterior of the home. The termites were found on the bottom of a corner piece on the home. After a thorough inspection of the interior of exterior of the home, we only found evidence of termites in this one location.

First, with the owners permission, wee drilled into the corner piece of the home and injected a foaming termiticide. Next, we treated the entire exterior of home with a liquid version of the termiticide. Both versions of the termiticide bind to the treated areas and creates a protective zone that the termites can't detect. As the termites go about their business, they'll come in contact with the termiticide and bring it back to their colony. They will then transfer the treatments throughout their nest. In short amount of time, the termites will be exterminated.

Birds Building a Nest on the Exterior Lights in Hightstown, NJ

A new customer in Hightstown, NJ called our Bird Solutions division after noticing a starling building a nest on one of her exterior lights! Once we arrived and inspected the property, we immediately noticed the nesting debris! 

The first thing we did was carefully remove and dispose of the bird nesting debris. Afterward, we disinfected the area with a solution that targets and eliminates 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! What makes bird mites even scarier is they're tiny and semi-transparent - which means that they are extremely difficult to detect. Bird mites are one of the reasons why extreme care is needed when removing a nest. 

Once we finished with that, with the owner's permission, we installed an Intimidator bird flasher near the porch light. The Intimidator reflects the suns rays as the wind spins it around and gives off Ultra Violet "flashes." Ultra violet is a color that birds can see but humans can not and the starlings, as well as all nuisance birds, will relate the UV flashes as a danger and stay away. This is a humane and effective visual deterrent to prevent all nuisance birds from nesting and causing any further damage to the home.

Termites swarm in Hightstown

I was called upon to treat a termite problem at a house in Hightstown. Termite damage often remains hidden until there is extensive damage to the home. However, there are two important earlier signs of a termite infestation that homeowners should be aware of. One is the mud tubes formed by termites so they can move from the nest to the wood food source without being exposed to the elements. the other sign of termite trouble, and by far, the more visible of the two, is termite swarms. This homeowner went through the frightening experience of witnessing a termite swarm take place inside his own home.

What are swarmers? Swarmers (flying termites), also known as winged reproductives, belong to a termite colony along with the workers and the queen. They emerge during the spring to search for mates in order to start a new colony. As soon as they mate, they break off their wings. Since termites are attracted to light, homeowners may find piles of termite wings on windowsills or on countertops near light sources. When a termite colony swarms, thousands of winged termites are potentially released. They may enter homes from the underground colony through cracks in the slab construction. Even though nearly all swarmers will die if they emerge inside a structure, it’s still important to contact a termite pest control professional immediately. An inside swarm like the one experienced by this homeowner is a sure sign that there is a hidden termite infestation on the property.

As part of my inspection, I had to determine where these invading insects had entered the home, so I could treat the soil where the termite nest had formed. At the base of a wall in the laundry room, I found a plumbing clean-out pipe. These pipes are used to access the home’s sewer line to clear out clogs. Right next to the pipe, I discovered a termite mud (shelter) tube in the wall void. That was how these sneaky wood-devouring insects were finding their way into the home!

Now it was time to get rid of these property-destroying insects. To eradicate the termite colony, I first needed to drill a small hole through the laundry room floor to gain access to the ground area where a termite nest was buried below. I then injected a powerful termiticide into the soil underneath the slab to reach the termites using a slab injector that I locked down on top of the hole. This non-repellant application is carried back to the nest by the workers where it will be transferred like a virus to the other termites. Soon, the entire termite colony will be killed. This home will now be protected against termite damage from this underground nest.
