Essex County Exterminators

Essex County is New Jersey's third-largest county. The area is growing, thanks in part to decreasing crime and rising earning power. From Manhattanites looking for quieter neighborhoods to families seeking a diverse place to raise their children, Essex County residents have access to plenty of parks and other attractions. Unfortunately, they share space with pests looking to escape the county's harsh winters and humid summers.

Residential Pest Control

Homeowners don't just worry about bees, mosquitoes and other stinging or biting insects. Carpenter ants and termites battle for the title of costliest pest as they burrow their way through wooden structures. Mice and rats put households at risk as they gnaw through electrical wiring and create health hazards with their droppings and urine. Fleas make their way into homes, wreaking havoc on pets and humans alike. Your best defense against these invaders is residential pest control. Viking provides residents with information on safe, effective preventive measures and treatments against a wide range of pests.

Commercial Pest Control

Businesses aren't safe from infestations, either. Pests can create chaos for companies by destroying reputations while damaging equipment and supplies. Rodents chew through a wide variety of materials and are likely to scare off customers for good. Cockroaches contaminate food and trigger asthma attacks or allergic reactions. Bed bugs ruin the good names of hotels and other businesses in the hospitality industry. Bees, hornets and wasps endanger both customers and employees. It's easy to see how commercial pest control services can save your business money in the long run.

Termite Control

A termite infestation is the stuff of nightmares for most homeowners. These silent invaders can drain your savings and destroy your home's structure. Luckily, we offer inspections and treatments to protect your house and your savings. Viking can keep your home free of heat- and moisture-loving termites, even during Essex County's hottest, most humid periods. Count on our experienced team to protect your home and budget from these super-destructive pests.

Mosquito and Tick Control

Mosquitoes don't just put a damper on your outdoor fun. Besides the agony they create with their itch-inducing bite, these bugs spread diseases like West Nile Virus, Zika virus, Eastern Equine Encephalitis Virus and more. While you can lessen the risk of mosquito infestations by removing standing water sources and placing fans in outdoor seating areas, infestations call for help from residential pest control pros. Ticks can cause illnesses ranging from Lyme disease to infections. The best defense against ticks is to wear long pants and sleeves when outdoors and check everyone in the family -- including pets -- after outings. If you have an infestation, call Viking.

Preventive Measures

Most home and business owners are relieved to hear that they can prevent many types of pest infestations. Keeping trash in tightly sealed cans stored away from your home or business is a great start. Get everyone in the house or office on board with cleaning up spills immediately and placing food in the fridge or airtight containers. Take care of plumbing leaks as soon as they occur, and check the perimeter of your house or building for gaps, cracks and other points of entry for all kinds of pests. Many pests, including rodents, can enter through the tiniest holes, so sealing them is essential.
