It’s that time of year when bugs come out in full force, leading homeowners to call Ocean County NJ pest control companies. You’ll probably see nuisance bugs outside, but some can manage to find their way indoors and create a problem in your NJ home. Here are some of the more common pests to watch for this summer.


Although cockroaches are around throughout the year, they’re usually out and about more often during the summer months. You might find these pests crawling around your kitchen looking for food and water. Make sure you sweep the floor, put pet food away and wipe down counters to discourage these disease-carrying pests.


Ants are a common sight in homes when it’s warm outside. You might see small ants, such as sugar ants, hanging around your kitchen, or you might find larger carpenter ants around your home. Carpenter ants can damage the wood in your home, while other ant species can contaminate your food supplies.

Mosquitoes and Ticks

These biting pests are usually more of an outdoor problem than an indoor one. Mosquitoes and ticks carry diseases, such as West Nile virus and Lyme disease, so it’s important to lower your risk of being bitten.
