Will This Winter for Pests be Like 2015’s?

If you ask the best exterminator in Tom’s River what this winter has in store for us, as far as pest control is concerned, you may be thinking about all of the developments that occurred last year. As winters go, 2016 was relatively mild, which means that pest control specialists were pretty busy. This is because the mild winter led to a significant jump in the number of pests that emerged as soon as spring arrived. The question is, what does this winter have in store for us?

Pest Control Challenges

There are a few challenges ahead for us if this winter is anything like it was last year. There are several factors at play, including:

The Zika Virus – This is a virus that’s spread by mosquitoes, and it can lead to flu-like symptoms in about 20% of those who get it.

• El Niño – We’ve seen El Niño happen many times over the years, and when it does, we’re in for higher temperatures during the winter. That means less pests die off and more emerge in the spring.

• Pesticide Laws – The toxicity of pesticides cannot be questioned, and there are always new laws for the purpose of protecting people.

Your Best Course of Action

Unfortunately, there’s not much you can do about any of these factors. Just know that the best exterminator in Tom’s River is here to help you. Please contact us right away!

Bed Bugs Attack Employees in Lower Manhattan

It appears that bed bugs have once again taken a bite out of workers in the Big Apple.  Two employees, who work in the Department of Financial Services building, say that bed bugs have been biting them at their workplace report the Daily News on November 14, 2013.  According to reports, internal memos show that the bed bug problem is not a new one in the building, yet spokesman Matt Anderson said “there’s no evidence the building is overrun by insects.”

Despite the fact that bed bugs are typically nocturnal, once bed bugs hitchhike their way into an office building they will bite employees whenever they see fit.  Depending on when a bed bug received its last blood meal, they may feed for a short period of time or a longer period of time.  Additionally, the amount of blood that a bed bug consumes is directly related to the amount of eggs that a female bed bug will be able to produce.  The more blood consumed, the more eggs she will produce.  Given the fact that a single female bed bug can lay up to 500 eggs in her short lifetime, it is easy to see how a small infestation can quickly grow into a large infestation either in a home or in an office building.

Bed bug infestations should always be treated rigorously so that they do not have the opportunity to spread from place to place.  In New Jersey, residents and businesses should hire a Monmouth County NJ exterminator with experience in handling the bloodsucking pests.  For fast and professional service, contact Allison Pest Control.

Do NJ Cockroaches Give You A Run For Your Money?

Anyone who has suffered through a cockroach infestation can attest to the fact that these creepy crawling insects will put up quite a battle when it comes to anyone’s attempt at killing them.  Not only have cockroaches become adept at living in human surroundings, they actually thrive in human surroundings.

Cockroaches are able to survive on the tiniest crumb of food that they find dropped upon the floor, sitting upon the kitchen countertop, or perhaps even inside of the toaster or inside of the oven.  If no food is present, the resourceful cockroach will easily chew a hole in any type of food packaging for its family and friends.  Cockroaches will even withstand the cold of the refrigerator if it means that they will receive a meal by invading it.  In a cockroach filled home, everyone is invited when a feast is discovered.  In addition, when actual food is scarce, the always resourceful cockroach will gladly nibble on soap, human or pet skin or hair, decaying insects, wallpaper glue, leather, or any other item which contains cellulose.

Baby cockroaches are about the size of a speck of dust.  It’s no wonder that they are able to hide in all types of cracks and crevices and escape being discovered. Cockroaches run fast and will spread bacteria and germs as they contaminate every surface that they come across.  Don’t find yourself without the protection of a Monmouth County, NJ exterminator.  Allison Pest Control can help to keep cockroaches away as well as all other types of unwanted pests this upcoming fall and winter season.
