The warm sunny weather, fun activities, summer vacations, and the upcoming school year in New Jersey makes it difficult to think that now is the time to prepare your home or business from outside invaders report Monmouth County, NJ exterminators. Some pests that will head towards a structure are just a nuisance as they are only looking for a warm location to escape the upcoming cold months ahead. Those pests are rarely seen unless a random warm day brings a few out of hiding to bask in the sun on a window or interior wall. Boxelder bugs, stink bugs, and lady bugs are an example of overwintering pests that are interested in a place to hide, not eat or contaminate food products.
Another type of home invader is by far one that every New Jersey homeowner should be concerned about. Mice will take any opportunity to find their way indoors. Mice can squeeze their nimble bodies into tiny crevices to gain entry into a structure. Gaps at electrical or plumbing entry points that are not sealed properly are an open invitation for a clever mouse.
Once mice make their way indoors, they typically do not tend to leave. Evidence that mice are present is the existence of feces, urine droplets, gnawing on wood furniture or cabinets, and food products being torn open. Mice are known to carry diseases in their urine, feces, and saliva so it is always best to call a Monmouth County, NJ exterminator when mice are present.
