A warehouse we service in Monroe, NJ has had a recent increase in mice activity. After inspecting the areas they were most prevalent, I noticed several openings around pipe chases on the outside of the building. These openings were right outside of the areas inside where most mice were reported. We were positive that mice were entering the building from these spots. I sealed these gaps and excluded mice from gaining access to the building.

I was recently sent out to a senior citizen development in Monroe Township, NJ to resolve a mouse infestation. The homeowner, who had quite a sense of humor considering there were rodents in her dwelling, told me that she was seeing “Mickey and friends,” but she was stumped as to how these little critters were gaining access to her home.

Usually, when inspecting for rodents, you’ll only see signs of rodent activity and not the pests themselves. Here, i found one of the most common signs of rodent activity — their droppings that they leave behind. Here, I found mouse droppings Considering near one of the poles in the closet. This pole happened to extend all the way up from the crawl space, and there was enough of a gap around the pole for mice to squeeze through to reach her closet. 

I applied a tracking powder along the pole and also excluded the space around the pole to seal off access. For rodent infestations, it is also important to conduct a thorough inspection of the home’s perimeter. During my outdoor inspection, I noticed a large opening underneath the exhaust. I took a picture of the potential rodent entry point to show the homeowner, and then proceeded to seal up that hole as well. 

After returning for a follow-up visit two weeks later, I was greeted by one happy homeowner. She told me exactly what i love to hear. She said that there were no further mouse sightings, mouse droppings, or any other signs of mice activity since my first visit.

Job Stories From Monroe Township, NJ
Sentricon does it's job keeping termites away in Monroe Township, NJ

Damage from termites cause, by far, more property damage than any other insects. These subterranean worm-like insects feed on any materials containing cellulose, so any building materials in your home that’s made of wood or paper is fair game. Some insects like carpenter ants and carpenter bees bore through wood to make galleries to lay their eggs. Termites are different. They actually eat the wood, and their damage is slow and steady. Because they eat wood from the inside out, turning beams and boards into hollow shells, it is often not discovered until there is extensive damage such as sagging floors. 

Because they are silent and stay hidden, it is difficult to know if you have an active termite infestation. One common signs are mud tubes that termites construct over foundations used to travel to and from the underground nest to reach the wood in your home. Another visible sign is discarded piled up wings from reproductive swarmers left on widow sills and other locations nearby light when a termite colony swarms and thousands of winged flying termites are released to mate and start new colonies.

Fortunately, homeowners are not helpless when it comes to termites. They can take preventative measures against termite damage through having a professional pest control service install a Sentricon termite elimination system around the home’s perimeter. With this system, bait stations are installed about every ten feet around the home, effectively blocking termites from reaching the home. To me, these bait stations are like an underground protective moat that create a barrier to block termites. These bait stations contain a cellulose matrix treated with an insect growth regular that prevents molting. The worker termites bring the bait back to share with the colony. The affected termites die as they are unable to molt and  and the colony is eliminated.

This homeowner in Monroe Township, NJ had a Sentricon system installed. And it’s a good thing he did. I was out there recently to perform an inspection to check the bait. I opened a station and found a slew of live termites devouring the bait. A good portion of the bait was consumed, and I replaced it. The workers will carry this back to the colony to share it with everyone else. The nest will soon be eliminated without the termites even getting close to the home. This is proactive preventative termite treatment at its best.

Surprise Snake in Monroe Township, NJ

Although I’m not a herpetologist, this snake wasn’t anything exotic. It appears to be an Eastern garter snake, the most common snake found in the state and around residences. Their color varies from olive to brown to black and typically have three stripes. Garter snakes are often confused with the Eastern Ribbon snake which is a skinny, high-contrast version of the Garden Snake with a long tail and narrower heads. If you get close enough, ribbon snakes have a white spot int he front of the eye and garter snakes don’t. However, if you have no interest in snake identification and just prefer to avoid them, the most important fact is that both of these species are completely harmless. In fact, of the 22 species of snakes recognized in New Jersey, only two are venomous: the timber rattlesnake and the northern copperhead.

There are many myths and misconceptions that drive fear of these legless reptiles, and like bats, their reputation as a symbol for evil and danger is undeserved. Very few people have ever been bitten by a venomous snake and there has never been a reported snake-related death in New Jersey. Unless you handle venomous snakes as part of a religious service, you are more likely to be struck by lightening. Venomous snakes tend to stay in the most remote areas of New Jersey, and those unfortunate few who have been bitten were most likely attempting to handle them. Each year many nonvenomous snakes are misidentified as venomous and needlessly killed. All New Jersey snakes are protected under the New Jersey Endangered and Nongame Species Act.
