Three Things Everyone In Oakland, NJ Ought To Know About Wildlife

Sure, wildlife might look nice from a distance, but it’s a very different story when they come wreaking havoc to your property and to your home. Here are three things that everyone in Oakland should know about the dangers of wildlife:

  • Squirrels. Even if they don’t make it into your home, squirrels can pose a big problem. They can spread fleas and ticks around your property very easily due to how much they roam around. They are also super chewers and can cause a lot of destruction around your property, like damaged foundations or electrical work.

  • Bats. While cute on TV, bats can cause a really big problem if they make it into your home. They break in through tiny openings or vulnerabilities in your home's foundation and seek refuge in places like attics, basements, and crawl spaces. Bats will also seek shelter that provides them with a food source. If you have bats, it implies that you probably have at least one other pest infestation in your home.

  • Mice and rats. These tiny pests, most often house mice or sewer rats, can sneak into your home through the tiniest of openings. Once in your home, they come looking for food, water, and shelter, so anything that you leave out is fair game, whether that’s leftover dinner or your pet's food. Both mice and rats are rodents who chew incessantly to keep their teeth from overgrowing, which may result in chewing on electrical cords and causing house fires.

If you're having trouble with wildlife on your property or in your home, call Amco Pest Solutions today for wildlife control.

What Are The Most Common Signs Of Termites In Oakland, NJ

Termites are known as the “silent swarmers” for a reason. They work in furtive ways, hiding from humans and costing American homeowners on average $5 billion each year in home damages. That said, there are a few key ways that Oakland residents can decipher whether or not they have a termite infestation in their home:

  • Mud tubes. This is the iconic sign that termites are present in your home. Termites cover their nests in mud tubes to serve as protection from both the elements and predators.

  • Bubbling wallpaper or surface. If you see pockets of bubbles in your walls, there are most likely termites chewing through your walls 24/7. This is a key sign of their damage.

  • Discarded wings. Termites, like several other pests, leave behind their molted parts, so a collection of discarded wings or other body parts may insinuate that you have an infestation on your hands.

  • Presence of termites. Though this is a less likely occurrence, if you are lucky enough to spot a termite, because they’re so small and secretive, it means that there’s a problem. Termite colonies can contain hundreds of thousands of members. 

If you suspect your home may have termites, or want to be proactive in preventing them, contact Amco Pest Solutions today for a termite inspection. We'll manage your termite issues effectively and quickly, keeping you and your home protected.
