Pest Control & Exterminators in Mercer County, NJ
AMCO Pest Services can serve clients across New York and New Jersey, and we frequently receive calls from Mercer County in particular. Because of the humid continental climate, many homeowners and business owners see their fair share of pests in the spring and summer. Our company has been around since 1935, and we've been continually updating our pest control services and broadening our knowledge about the pests themselves. We hope you'll choose us when you're faced with one or more of the following pests:
• Bees and wasps
Whether it's carpenter ants, pavement ants, or odorous house ants, you'll want them gone from your property. Consider some preventative measures first before calling us. For example, if there are cracks in your exterior or in your bathrooms and kitchen, caulk these up. Ants love sugary foods in particular, and they like to dwell in moist places. Also, make sure to keep food and drinks contained, and don't leave pet food out on the patio.
Carpenter ants are the most common ant that you'll find. If you find a hole that has been bored into a wood structure and a pile of sawdust below it, then you know that these ants have made their home in your wood. The way our team eliminates ants is through a bait system, which will eventually kill the whole ant colony. For immediate results, we can dust any ants we see with Borax.
Bedbugs are brown, oval-shaped bugs that feed on human blood in the night. Contrary to popular belief, bedbugs don't gravitate to unsanitary homes or motels; they'll invade any place that provides warmth. They frequently breed around the mattress and box spring, which is the closest they can get to their food source. Though bedbugs are difficult pests to exterminate, you have options. We have a K-9 who has been professionally trained to sniff out bedbugs, and after detection, we'll fumigate all the infested areas.
Bees and Wasps
Honeybees and bumblebees are harmless creatures and will only sting when provoked. On the other hand, wasps, which include yellowjackets and hornets, are naturally aggressive. Some bees will nest in underground burrows, increasing the risk of you disturbing them. Since so many like enclosed spaces, they'll nest under the eaves or cavity walls, which can be too close for comfort. AMCO Pest Services will strive to remove bees in a humane fashion. As a last resort, we can use insecticides with a paralyzing effect and even freeze wasps' nests to eliminate them. For more information on our bee & wasp control services, click here.
Rodents are just one form of wildlife that our business can remove. Whether you're dealing with rats or mice, both can wreak havoc in your attic or basement by gnawing at your wood, filling the place with a urine smell, and ripping away soft materials like fiberglass insulation and cardboard to make their nests. If left alone for too long, they'll succeed in creating an entry into the rest of your home and begin foraging in the kitchen. They also carry deadly diseases like hantavirus and salmonella. Allow us to trap these critters so that they don't have to be exterminated.
There are two types of termites to watch out for: subterranean and drywood. The former emerge from underground colonies to feed on moist or decayed wood that directly touches the soil. Our team can identify them through their mud tubes, the wings that their swarmers leave behind, and other signs. Drywood termites dwell inside wood structures and don't require soil to live. If we find a pile of termite excrement, or frass, outside of a damaged wood structure, then we'll know you have an infestation. We offer conventional termiticide treatments as well as baiting via the Hex-Pro™ Termite Baiting System (baiting is only for subterranean termites).
