Common Staten Island Pests

Termites

In nature, termites help turn dead wood into soil. The problem is that these voracious eaters do not know the difference between a tree stump and the structural elements of your home. Eastern subterranean termites are common in our area. Hidden inside the walls, a colony can contain up to a million termites that can cause thousands of dollars of damage. Our technicians are trained to locate and eliminate termite infestations. To learn more about our termite control services, click here.

Ants

In addition to pavement and pharaoh ants, Staten Island also hosts odorous and carpenter species. These insects enter your home in search of food and water. Like termites, carpenter ants gnaw wooden elements and weaken the structural integrity of your house. These destructive pests, like other ant species can chew their way through plastic wrapping and contaminate food. We can help you protect your property and prevent further damage by these unwanted guests. To learn more about our termite control services, click here.

Bed bugs

Bed bugs can enter your home in luggage, the seams of clothing and packing materials. Although they do not transmit disease, bedbugs are parasitic insects that feed on sleeping victims, including humans and their pets. Scratching the itchy, red welts created by their bites can lead to a rash or a secondary infection. The presence of these pests can cause distress and make it difficult to sleep. At AMCO Pest Solution, we inspect and treat potential bedbug hideaways, including the folds of bed linen, curtains and upholstery. To learn more about our termite control services, click here.

Rodents

Rodents like squirrels, rats and mice enter your home in search of food, water and a place to build a nest so that their young are safe from predators. Rodents as well as the ticks and fleas that they harbor can transmit a number of serious illnesses and diseases, such as rat bite fever, Hantavirus and trichinosis. Animal droppings can also contaminate food with salmonella. As these rodents frolic inside your attic, walls and crawl spaces, they chew on wood, drywall, insulation and wiring. This weakens the structural elements of your home and increases the risk of an electrical fire. It is important that a rodent infestation be removed quickly. To learn more about our termite control services, click here.

Bees & Wasps

Bees, wasps and other stinging insects build nests in various places around your home and yard, such as trees, eaves and playground equipment. These pests will swarm and attack if they feel threatened, which can result in numerous stings. This can cause life-threatening anaphylaxis shock. Carpenter bees bore holes in the outside of your home and build a nest inside the walls. Their honey attracts other pests like mice. Eliminating a nest or preventing the insects from building a nest, greatly reduces the threat to your home and family. To learn more about our termite control services, click here.

Why Call a Professional

Many commercially available sprays, baits and traps are often ineffective because they take a one-size-fit all approach. Professional pest control often saves time and money while providing better protection for your family than is possible with the use of do-it-yourself solutions. It is important to safeguard your home and family from threats posed by termites, ants and bedbugs as well as rodents and stinging insects.
