What are pests up to this year? With the climate changing and weather and temperatures becoming more extreme in many areas, bugs and rodents are thriving better than ever in certain areas. We’ve listed below some of the top pest trends.
• Brown marmorated stink bugs are spreading. This invasive species is already in NJ, but they’re heading west and expected to become major pests. These insects are already considered a nuisance for homes and businesses, mainly due to their numbers and odor. As they spread, they could also have a negative impact on crops,
• Roof rats are moving inland. Ship rats, or roof rats, are commonly seen along the eastern seaboard of the US, but these pests are moving to areas that are more inland. Roof rats can cause damage to your home and spread disease when they nest inside open spaces in walls and ceilings. If you see one, it’s essential to call your Freehold exterminator immediately.
• Bed bugs are showing up in unexpected places. They’re hard to treat with OTC products, and are becoming nuisances in places that they normally haven’t been associated with, such as movie theaters, libraries, and healthcare facilities. Chances are increasing that you could accidentally bring them into your home.
Whether you have bugs or rodents in your home, it’s time to call a Freehold exterminator. Contact Allison Pest Control, and we’ll remove these pests from your NJ home.
