SPECIALIZING IN RESIDENTIAL PEST CONTROL

FOR NJ HOMEOWNERS AND TENANTS

PREVENTING TICK BITES

Many people think they only have to worry about ticks when they are out in the woods.  The truth is that ticks living in your own backyard can pose a threat to you, your family and your pets. Alternative Pest Control understands the dangers ticks pose and we are to here to help.

The Alternative Approach

If you suspect ticks are living on or near your property, Alternative Pest Control can implement a tick-control solution to keep your risk as minimal as possible. Let us provide you with a no-obligation evaluation to review options for tick prevention, tick control, and tick removal.

 

  • Economical: Our streamlined and eco-conscious approach to tick prevention and control saves you money in the long-run and minimizes need for chemical pesticides
  • Targeted: We focus on the “hot spots” and perimeter of your property to prevent and control tick entry
  • Effective: Multiple treatments are performed beginning as early as April and continue throughout the Spring and Summer months
STINKBUG CONTROL

Have a stinky pest problem?  It is likely stinkbugs have entered your residence. These offensive smelling pests are generally not dangerous to your health but do leave behind an offensive odor, especially after they die.

Since these pests live and thrive in warmer temperatures, in the winter they may try to find a way into your home seeking warmth, in hopes of surviving until Spring. Stink bugs gravitate towards light and have an uncanny ability to slip into homes through torn screens and door cracks thanks to their flat body shape. 

The Alternative Approach

The most effective way to control stink bugs is through year-round prevention, with regular treatments. If you’ve seen – or smelled – a stinkbug in your home, contact Alternative so that we can address the issue before it escalates. 

Exterior Solutions: Because stink bugs have a special talent for sneaking into your home through vulnerable areas, like ripped screens and door gaps, Alternative Pest Control may recommend sealing any holes and potentially using a chemical deterrent around entry points.

Interior Solutions: If an infestation exists, Alternative will utilize an Integrated Pest Management approach to removal and neutralization.

ANT INFESTATIONS

Ants are one of the smallest pests, yet among the most embarrassing and annoying. When ants find their way into your home it can be difficult to get control of them on your own. Off-the-shelf products may help temporarily, but don’t address the source of the problem. 

The Alternative Approach

With ongoing treatments, Alternative Pest Control can help you keep ants outside where they belong. Our Integrated Pest Management approach prevents small ant issues from escalating into major disasters, such as ant colonies in your walls or foundation.

Treatment Options: Alternative uses safe and effective products that are proven to stop ants in their tracks and keep them from returning, without putting the health of your family and pets at risk.

Waste Disposal: Because ants are drawn to food and crumbs, one of our technicians will throughly inspect your home for potential food sources that could be attracting them, and may recommend a waste disposal strategy to help with prevention.

MOSQUITO MANAGEMENT

Mosquito bites can be unpleasant, and potentially harmful in the case of transmitted diseases such as Zika virus. While reactions to bites may vary (from minor irritation to major swelling), these stinging pests can destroy opportunities for outdoors entertaining and be extremely bothersome when they gain access into your home. 

The Alternative Approach

If your home or yard has been invaded by mosquitos, let Alternative Pest Control come to the rescue. We employ an integrated approach designed to treat infestations and address source reduction.

Inspection and Treatment: Alternative will do a complete walk-through, both inside and outside of your property to identify and neutralize settings that are hospitable to mosquitos. Our trained technician will eliminate standing water sources that are conducive to breeding treat any relevant areas with product designed to reduce mosquito’s lifecycles and prevent eggs from hatching.

Seasonal Packages: During mosquito season, Alternative recommends multiple visits and treatments to maintain control and minimize mosquito disruption. Contact us to discuss a Home Pest Protection Plan that is right for you.

TERMITE PROBLEMS

Termites break down wood, which is good for the environment – in the woods. However the last thing you want is termites in your home. Termite infestations rank among the most expensive pest control issues for homeowners, and the structural damage they inflict and may not be covered by your homeowner’s insurance. Don’t wait till it’s too late and your house has been infested.

The Alternative Approach

If you suspect your home has termites, contact Alternative Pest Control immediately. We understand the risks that termites present to your home and your wallet. When it comes to protecting your biggest investment, it is always better to be safe than sorry.

Identification: Termite damage may not always be visible. Alternative knows where and how to inspect for termites, where to look and how to identify the scale of you termite problem.

Treatment: If an infestation is discovered, Alternative Pest Control will implement a treatment plan, likely consisting of multiple Integrated Pest Management treatments to neutralize the threat they pose and prevent future infestations.

DEALING WITH FLEAS

Fleas can live not only on your pets, but also on your fabric furniture, clothes, hair and skin. If you suspect a pet has brought fleas into the home, contact Alternative Pest Control immediately.

The Alternative Approach

Alternative Pest Control will conduct a thorough inspection to locate the source of fleas and identify the species causing the problem. Our technician will recommend an ongoing flea control plan which will likely include:

  • Pet Treatment and Grooming: Treatment of host pet(s) with veterinarian recommended products or through vet visits – along with regular pet bathing
  • Chemical or Biochemical Treatments: Application of product to infested areas that will shorten or eliminate flea lifecycles
  • Follow-up: Regular follow-up visits are scheduled to ensure effectiveness and adherence to flea control plan, and to prevent future infestations
FIELD MICE / HOUSE MICE

In suburban areas it is very common for field mice and deer mice to find an interior location they can call home. These unwelcome guests have an uncanny ability to locate points of entry such as wall holes or door cracks to pass through. Field and house mice can be alarming and destructive, and certain species carry viruses that can be harmful to humans. Additionally, they build messy nests in attics, walls, and other dark areas, can cause damage to furniture and appliances by gnawing at them, and stored food inside your home, which often attracts other insects and pests.

The Alternative Approach

It is critically important that if you notice or have seen a mouse in your residence you quickly reach out to a trained professional. Off-the-shelf products are largely ineffective, sometimes make the problem worse, and are often made with harsh or poisonous chemicals that can be harmful to family members and pets.

At Alternative Pest Control our skilled technicians understand how these unwelcome guests can find their way in and will perform a thorough inspection to locate points of entry. To treat current mouse issues and prevent infestations we employ a variety of appropriate treatments, including:

 

  • Exclusion – Sealing off entry points that enable mice to enter the home
  • Waste Disposal: Sanitation & Debris – Your technician may  recommend a variety of sanitation and debris practices to minimize attraction of rodents to your property
  • Baits & Traps: Rodent baits, traps and other mechanical devices may be used to capture and remove mice
