Conducive Conditions for Fruit Flies in Gladstone, NJ

During a routine service of a commercial building in Gladstone, NJ, we noticed that underneath several pieces of kitchen equipment was a build-up of spoiled food and sugary liquids. All of these issues will eventually cause the owner to have a severe fruit fly problem. 

We informed the manager on duty and told him that sanitation is the best form of pest control. If these issues are properly addressed, then there will be no pest problem! We were happy to hear that the manager agreed with us and both he and his staff immediately started to clean the area and underneath the equipment.

As a precaution, we treated all the floor drains throughout the building with a liquid application and thoroughly scrubbed them out. This product removes the bad bacteria in the drain, which eliminates the fruit fly's breeding habitat. Afterward, we applied a bio-foam solution that removes the organic build-up, odors, and scum in the drains. With our treatments and a proper sanitation procedure in place, the building will no longer have any pest issues.

Broken Crawl Space Door Leads to Rat Infestation in Skillman, NJ

A business owner in Skillman, NJ called our office after his maintenance crew found a rat in the crawl space. As soon as we began our inspection, we immediately noticed that the door to the crawl space was broken and was hanging on by a small hook. First, we carefully cleaned up the droppings and then installed several rodent bait stations throughout the crawl space and along the exterior of the building.  We also scheduled several follow-up visits to replenish the bait stations as needed.

Although we offered to replace the crawl space door for the owner, he informed us that he will have his maintenance crew replace the broken door once the rats are gone.

Exterminating Carpenter Bees in Watchung, NJ

A new customer in Watchung, NJ called our office after noticing a large number of "fat bees" hovering around the fascia board area of his home. We were sent out to inspect and treat.

As we inspected the area, we noticed a large number of carpenter bees flying around and drilling into the fascia board on the sunny side of his home.  Carpenter bees are solitary, wood-destroying pests but they don't eat wood like termites do. What's unique about these pests is that they drill perfectly circular 1/2 holes in wooden structures to create galleries. An easy way to tell that you have a carpenter bee problem is, aside from them hovering around the sunny areas of your home, is to look for those yellow-brownish stains. That is actually carpenter bee feces!

If not treated, the carpenter bees will reuse the same galleries year after year and cause extensive damage to that area. So we grabbed our extendable pole, to reach the carpenter bees, and applied a residual dusting application directly into the galleries and gaps underneath the fascia boards. Not only will this treatment eliminate the carpenter bees, but the residual that is left behind will exterminate any returning and newly hatched carpenter bees in the galleries.

Mice Using a Gap Around Utility Pipe to Invade Home in Martinsville, NJ

A new customer in Martinsville, NJ called our office after finding mice droppings in her home. After finding mice droppings in the basement, we inspected the exterior of the home and noticed a wide gap around one of the utility pipes. Upon closer inspection, we found more mice droppings by that area. This was how the mice were entering the home. 

First, we carefully cleaned up all the droppings and then installed several rodent bait stations throughout the basement and along the exterior of the home. Next, we stuffed the opening with chew-proof stainless steel mesh and sealed it in place with a waterproof adhesive. Rodents typically don't like chewing through metal because it's extremely uncomfortable for their teeth and gums.

The combination of the two materials makes for a great deterrent. We'll return for several follow-up visits to monitor the rodent infestation and replenish the bait stations as needed.
