Our area of South New Jersey is an attractive habitat to a wide variety of pests. Ants, termites, and rodents are three of the pests that threaten our local homes. Recognizing the pests and seeking professional pest control treatments can protect your home from these persistent critters.

Ants

Ants are social insects that live in large colonies, so the ants that you see are only a small sample of the total colony. Visible ants are usually foraging for food, and a foraging ant can contaminate human and pet food products. Some ants carry a powerful bite or sting, and this painful attack can spark an allergic reaction in some individuals. There are many ant species, but you do not want any of them in your home.

Termites

Like ants, termites live in large colonies. Unlike ants, termites feed on dead plant matter, such as wood. One colony can create extensive hollow galleries within a wooden structure. Termite behavior can cause significant structural damage long before the colony is discovered, so preventative pest treatments and regular inspections are very important.

Rodents

Rodents are the stuff of nightmares for many homeowners. Every rodent possesses an ever-growing set of incisors. The teeth are capable of chewing through wood and other essential building materials, so a single rat or chipmunk can cause significant structural damage. Unfortunately, rodents reproduce rapidly, so a single rodent will find a way to multiply. Additionally, rodents are capable of contaminating food and introducing dangerous parasites to your home.

Infestations of ants, termites, and rodents should be handled by a professional. If you are worried about an existing or potential infestation, contact us at Rid Pest Control for a free quote on our extermination services.
