This Toms River home had a crawl space that was poorly insulated, was likely to attract pests and insects, and in its current state allowed for the spread of mold and mildew from the damp space. Cowley's makeover made this crawl space the envy of the neighborhood, providing proactive protection that prevents future problems.

A home in Toms River had a mouse infestation in the attic. A Cowleys pest control technician quickly resolved the infestation, and potential entry points were closed. However, mice were not the only problem. Depending on the length of the infestation and the type and number of invading wildlife, a homeowner may find himself with significant property damage. Often, it’s the attic insulation that takes the worst beating. Once mice or other wildlife takes up residence in the attic, a good portion of the insulation is often ruined beyond repair. The insulation is not only torn and shredded, but it is saturated with urine and droppings. Wildlife droppings can contain bacteria, parasites, and other pathogens. When the pellets dry, microscopic spores are then released into the air, which is a health hazard for the home’s occupants. The urine odors are often so strong that they permeate through the entire house. Unfortunately, this ruined insulation in this Toms River home could not be salvaged and had to go.

 This homeowner had first-hand experience with the quality of Cowleys services, and was happy that he could continue to rely on Cowleys, which has its own experienced home improvement team to handle all of its insulation projects. Cowleys installs TAP Pest Control Insulation, an environmentally safe, ENERGY STAR designated, UL classified, fire retardant loose-fill cellulose insulation that is made primarily from ground-up newspaper. TAP stands for Thermal, Acoustical, and Pest Control. This insulation not only offers superior thermal and acoustical (sound-deadening) properties, but also offers a proven method of pest control. The paper fibers are treated with a borate solution, which, while harmless to people, is lethal to certain insects including ants, beetles, and termites.Because TAP insulation is safe to use around children and pets, it does not affect mammals such as mice, rodents, or other wildlife pests. For these pests, you still require traditional pest-control methods such as blocking potential entry points into your home.

The insulation team completely removed the contaminated insulation and debris. Next, we applied a disinfectant (steri fab) to sterilize the attic, so the attic would be as good as new. Once we were done, there was not a single trace that there ever was a mouse infestation. We then prepped and staged the attic by boarding off usable floorboards and installing baffles to allow the attic to ventilate properly, which is important so that excess moisture is removed and a mold problem is not triggered down the road. Good attic ventilation is important for a variety of reasons from cooling down the house in the summer to preventing ice dams from forming in the winter. Some insulation installers cut corners to save time and block the attic’s venting system. Cowleys has had to treat attic mold problems in homes because of this oversight. 

Finally, we installed the TAP insulation. The homeowner was pleased. He not only has an attic that is free of wildlife odors, but has also improved the value of his home by having expertly installed top-quality attic insulation. With TAP in his attic, he will save money on his heating and cooling bills for years to come.

Job Stories From Toms River, NJ
Multiple Pests Invade Toms River, NJ Home

Recently, I was sent to a home in Toms River, NJ to treat a pest infestation of invading ants and centipedes. Ants are an extremely common nuisance pest for homeowners, and centipedes less so. Often, a centipede infestation is an indicator of another pest infestation since they eat a variety of other insects including spiders, silverfish, and ants. Also, centipedes require wet, damp humid areas since they don’t hold in moisture and easily dry out. Inevitably, centipede infestations are concentrated in wet, damp, and humid areas of your home like crawl spaces, basements, kitchens, and bathrooms. Centipedes often stay hidden because they are nocturnal and with their dozens of delicate legs, these guys are fast — moving a foot and a half in a second — across floors, up walls, and along ceilings. And by the way, centipedes can and do bite.

During my exterior inspection of this home, I saw that there were ideal breeding grounds for ants and centipedes. There were a number of mulch and rock beds around the home. These underground coverings retain moisture and are ideal harborage for these insects. Also, ants commonly nest under decks and paver bricks. For preventative outdoor treatments, it is helpful to spot treat these areas away from the foundation. Treating ground cover like ivy, under bushes, and around the base of trees can also make a big difference. For this home, I strapped on a backpack sprayer with an effective residual application to treat these areas. Residual products remain effective and keep working where they are applied for some length of time. Depending on the formulation, and the type and condition of the surface, these products can continue working for days or even weeks.

Nasty yellow jackets in Toms River, Nj have to go.

I was dispatched to Toms River, NJ to help a homeowner get rid of some nasty yellow jackets. Fortunately, no one had yet been stung, and I wanted to keep it that way. Yellow jackets cause more concern than most other stinging insects, and for good reason. They are highly aggressive and territorial. Yellow jackets are social insects that live in colonies with a reproducing queen and workers that forage for food to feed the larvae, build the nest, and protect it against threats. Because yellow jackets do not lose their stinger when they inject their venom, a single yellow jacket is capable of stinging multiple times. Also, a yellow jacket nest can grow to several thousand of these insects, so a yellow jacket attack can result in dozens and dozens of painful stings. Compounding the problem of a yellow jacket infestations is where they build their nests. Unlike many other stinging insects, especially those that live in colonies, they don’t build their nests above-ground where they are easy to spot, and hopefully, avoid before it is removed. Instead, yellow jackets prefer to dig their nests in hidden locations. We find these nests built anywhere and everywhere around homes including holes in the ground and in wildlife burrows. 

This particular homeowner wound up with a yellow jacket nest built right in the ground underneath a cable box in front of his home. Because of the location of this nest, it posed a huge risk to the home’s residents. There was no question that this colony had to be eliminated and eliminated quickly. Because these insects are so aggressive and will quickly attack anyone they deem to pose a threat, the first thing I did was to put on a protective suit. Just like everyone else, pest control technicians don’t like getting stung. It’s an occupational hazard of the job, but we do our best to avoid it.  With any stinging insect job, we always have our guard up to protect ourselves, and we take safety precautions such as wearing protective suits. 

After I was suited up, I injected a dust into the opening where they were entering and exiting the nest and marked the nest location with a flag to identify its location. This product is highly effective and will eliminate the nest within 24 hours.
