Gutter Cleaning in Freehold, NJ

Gutter Cleaning in Freehold, NJ

Before After
Gutter Cleaning in Freehold, NJ Gutter Cleaning in Freehold, NJ

Here is a “before and after” of our home gutter cleaning service. As you can see, the gutter was filled with debris in this Freehold, NJ home. Clogged gutters can cause significant damage to the home. The rainwater does not funnel away from the roof and the stagnant water can cause damage to the shingles. Also overflowing water can come down in sheets near the home’s foundation, saturating the water near the home. This water can weaken the home’s foundation and can potentially seep into the basement or crawl space. The after shows a beautiful home with nice, clean gutters that now actually do what they are meant to do — take rainwater that lands on the roof away through the downspouts from the home where it can’t cause any damage. Gutter cleaning is an important home maintenance task that should not be ignored. For those homeowners who do not have the time, interest, or mobility to be climbing up and down ladders to clean up their gutters, Cowleys performs this important service.

Job Stories From Freehold, NJ
Wasp infestation brings fear to community in Freehold, NJ

While conducting a servicing at one of our accounts, a large residential community in Freehold, NJ, the property manager informed me that one of the residents had a wasp nest above her front door. Stinging insects, especially aggressive, territorial wasps, are a high priority infestation, and I immediately attended to this problem.

When I arrived at the resident’s unit, I observed active insect activity around the nest. I treated the nest with an aerosol and waited until all insect activity stopped. I then removed and bagged the nest so that I could transport it away from the premises. Fortunately, no one, including me, was stung. Whenever I am dealing with a wasp, yellow jacket, or other stinging insect infestation, if I am able to kill the insects and remove their nest without being stung, it’s automatically a good day for me!

Tick defense in Freehold

New Jersey is one of the top states for reported Lyme Disease cases, and most of tick bites happen in May, June, and July. Ticks cling onto vegetation, and when a host brushes by, the tick climbs aboard and looks for a place to attach. Many sufferers of Lyme disease have been bitten by ticks right in their own backyards. 

Fortunately, homeowners can dramatically reduce the chance of tick bites and Lyme disease. First, any of us who live in New Jersey and enjoy the outdoors should always be aware of ticks. We should routinely do tick checks on ourselves and on our children whenever returning from the outdoors. Second, you can actively reduce tick populations around your own home. 

I recently serviced a homeowner in Freehold Township who requested our tick-reduction program, a series of well-timed, targeted treatments to knock down ticks at all stages of their life cycle. First, I conducted a property analysis to determine the tick activity level and design an appropriate treatment plan for that home's specific landscaping and surrounding environment. There are numerous ways to make your yard less attractive to ticks, from placing  a wood chip barrier along wooded areas to to simple steps like frequent mowing and yard debris removal. By restricting tick migration and tick harborage, tick populations drop dramatically. 

In addition to this "habitat modification," I apply a tick treatment to those areas where ticks are likely present such as tall vegetation as well as the lawn perimeter, paying careful attention to forest lines. This targeted approach is most effective for long-term tick control. And for households with children and pets, this approach is far safer than blanket treatment of the entire lawn. 

With tick-reduction programs, early spring is the ideal time to begin treatment. Spring is a peak time for eggs and tiny nymphs. Reducing these younger tick populations in the spring means less adult ticks down the road. Also, because of their size, nymphs are difficult to detect and these tiny ticks can just as easily transfer diseases through their bites.

As a home protection technician, one part of my job I especially enjoy is helping families enjoy their property during the spring and summer. For me, looking forward to these precious months is what gets me through our tough New Jersey winters. For me, there is a lot of satisfaction helping a family and seeing their kids enjoy their own backyard without the threat of biting, disease-carrying ticks.

Bed bugs in Freehold library book.

This picture was taken in an apartment in freehold today. This book to the untrained eye would seem harmless. It was in fact a mystery novel but that's not the point of this story. This particular book was from the public library. The black stains on the pages are fecal stains from a bedbug. This resident informed me that she's had the book for quite some time and always reads in bed. If she had returned this book what's to say she wouldn't also transport bedbugs as well. Just be careful of what you bring into your home not knowing where it was before. Used furniture, borrowed items, even belongings of close friends are harborage areas of bedbugs.

Take away the termites but leave my landscaping.

This past week I was scheduled for a termite treatment in Freehold, N.J. I explained to the customer that the treatment for termites is a chemical treatment to the soil which included digging a trench around the exterior foundation of his home. The customer was concerned that his landscape that he prides was gonna look horrible after the job was done. I assured him I'd do my best to make it look like I was never there. Another happy customer.

I have a single wasp nest, in or around some flower pots, that has a steady stream of tiny yellow guys. It is at a bad angle so I can't hit them with spray from a distance. I got stung last night so I am hesitant to go after them again. How much would it cost for someone to come and end their world?
