Old Crawl Space Doors Allow Easy Access for Rodents in Monmouth Junction, NJ
We were called out to a home in Monmouth Junction, NJ for a mouse exclusion. This particular home was overrun with mice.
I replaced her crawl space door with an Everlast vent cover to make sure mice can not enter. These covers, which can be installed against wood framing or masonry, not only block insects and wildlife from entering the crawl space, they also block out humid mold-forming air and moisture from entering. These aesthetically pleasing covers are made with a hard durable plastic that stand up to the worst weather conditions, and unlike wood vents, are completely maintenance free. Even though these covers completely seal the vents, they are easy to open should you need to access your crawl space. All you have to do is twist a few large knobs, and you’re in!
Mice Removal, Control, and Exclusion in Monmouth Junction, NJ
With mice and other nuisance wildlife infestations, it is critical to find the potential entry points and seal them; otherwise, the infestation will never be permanently resolved.
We carefully inspected the entire home, filling every hole we could locate with spray foam. The before/after pictures highlight that the gaps that were once open are now closed off. During my inspection, I also noticed a large gap underneath the front door that would allow mice to enter. I installed rubber weather stripping to seal that potential route.
Transforming & Encapsulating Another Dirt Floor Crawl Space in Monmouth Junction, NJ
After years and years of dealing with a humid & wet dirt-floor crawl space, this homeowner in Monmouth Junction, NJ decided it was time to change this and encapsulate his crawl space! After speaking with one of our sales reps and discussing various options, he decided on a plan and we went right to work!
First, we removed all the debris, leveled the ground for proper draining, and installed drainage matting. This material is a dimpled plastic mat that allows all excess moisture to work its way over to the new sump pump we installed. Next, we installed a vapor barrier, which is a heavy-duty, 20-mil 7-ply sandwich of high and low-density polyethylene with a polyester-cord reinforcement. It's extremely durable, treated with an antimicrobial to prevent mold, and is installed over the foundation walls and floor to create a continuous air and moisture barrier.
Afterward, we installed SilverGlo™ on the walls of the crawl space, which is a waterproof foam insulation that seals the walls from outside moisture and humidity. Lastly, we installed a Sani-Dry Sedona commercial-grade dehumidifier. The Sedona directs the extracted water pulled out of the air directly into the sump pump and will control the humidity levels in the crawl space.

A new customer in Monmouth Junction, NJ called our office after getting stung several times by yellow jackets. When I arrived, I equipped my protective bee suit and began inspecting. Although I spotted a few angry yellow jackets along the right side of the home, I could not spot their nest anywhere on the building or on the trees. That's when I started examining the ground and BINGO! I found a large yellow jacket nest in the ground on the side of the home!
In order to eliminate the yellow jackets, I'll nest to remove their nest. Before removing the nest I grabbed my extendable pole and inserted a knockdown dusting product directly into the entrance to the nest. This product rapidly neutralizes the yellow jackets. Once the activity dramatically slowed down, I dug out the nest and then properly disposed of it.
