Job Stories From South Plainfield, NJ
Heavy bed bug infestation in South Plainfield, NJ

Bed bug infestations are one of our most challenging pests. They are tough, resilient insects and bury themselves deep in tiny cracks and crevices between blood meals. Bed bugs are rarely in plan view and it takes a detailed, systematic, methodical inspection to find them. Also, treating bed bug infestations require follow-up visits to re-inspect and provide additional treatments as necessary. You can never assume that a bed bug infestation is fully resolved after the first treatment, and the pest control service must stay with it until there are no more bugs and no more bites! 

Here, a two-man bed beg team was sent to a home in South Plainfield, NJ to perform a 3-week follow-up after our initial bed bug treatment. During the follow-ups, we start from scratch, performing a full inspection to determine the extent and location of bed bug activity. When lifting the mattress, I immediately noticed significant bed bug activity including tiny nymphs (young bed bugs). Compared to adults, nymphs are much smaller, translucent or whitish-yellow in color. Because of their coloring and size, they are nearly invisible to the naked eye and can easily escape detection. However, here, the timing was good. Nymphs go through five stages during their life cycle to an adult. After a feeding, when engorged with blood, they are much easier to find. Although the homeowner stated that he had not seen any activity, the inspection revealed that there was still a major problem. Although the population was knocked down, the infestation was not yet resolved. More needed to be done. 

With bed bugs, the importance of a thorough vacuuming all of the seams and stitching of bedding cannot be overstated. After vacuuming, we applied a treatment. We scheduled another follow-up with this customer. We will stay on top of this infestation until it is completely resolved. One bed bug is one bed bug too many!

Mouse surprise for this South Plainfield, NJ homeowner

As a pest control technician, you come across different situations every day. It’s one of the reasons why I love this job besides helping people and businesses deal with all sorts of insect and rodent infestations. It just never gets old. Sometimes things happen that you would not believe if you did not see it with your own two eyes. That was the situation here. This story could easily be called “Mice Find their Way in the Darndest Places.” 

A homeowner in South Plainfield, NJ was ready to hop in the shower. A pretty routine activity that we do every day — almost without thinking about it. However, this time, when she pulled the shower curtain back, there a big surprise was awaiting. A beady-eyed voyeur was there to greet her. To say that this unexpected surprise startled the homeowner was an understatement. According to her, she screamed more loudly than Janet Leigh taking a shower at the Bates Motel!  Fortunately, this intruder was nowhere as dangerous as Norman Bates. We were “only” dealing with a mouse. 

However, perhaps most bizarre, was that this little rodent was sitting right on top of the shower head! He was acting as though he was on the observation deck of the Empire State Building! The mouse was using the shower as a personal obstacle course, running down the handheld shower cord, circling around the tub, and then going back up to the shower head once again. 

Going forward, this homeowner did not want anyone joining in her shower, especially a mouse. I promised her that I’d take care of the problem. When dealing with any rodent infestation, the inspection is critical. You have to find the entry points to know how the rodents are gaining access inside the home. After careful inspection, I found their entrance way. There were gaps around the water supply line. Mice are a challenging infestation because of their diminutive size. They can fit through a hole the size of a dime, less than 1/4 inch of space!  

I first treated the wall void with a tracking powder application. When it gets on their paws and skin, they lick it off, and then it’s lights out. Nest, I sealed the opening with chew-proof copper mesh. You just can’t caulk the gaps because mice will chew and claw their way right through it. Moving my inspection to the basement, I located a utility line going through the exterior wall that had plenty of room for mice to gain entry to the home. I sealed those openings as well and then placed rodent bait stations around the inside basement perimeter as well as large rodent boxes around the exterior perimeter. These measures will get rid of the mice in the home and ensure that no more mice will get inside. I’m confident that after this treatment, this homeowner will be able to take a shower without worrying about some curious mouse staring at her from the shower head!
