Damage Carpenter Bees Can Cause in Cliffside Park, NJ
Maybe you don’t think of bees as a pest that is likely to hang around your Cliffside Park house. Wasps and hornets, sure, but don’t bumblebees prefer meadows and rotted trees? Well sure they do, but what you think is a bumblebee may actually be a carpenter bee, a pest much more at home in your home. While not very prone to sting (the more bold males don’t even have stingers!), carpenter bees like to burrow into wood to make their nests, and are commonly found invading the siding and eaves of houses. Distinguished from bumblebees by their shiny black abdomen, carpenter bees’ strong jaws dig right into wood, and given enough freedom can compromise the integrity of a board. Carpenter bees also attract woodpeckers, which is a far worse pest to have drilling into your home. If you happen to notice small piles of sawdust underneath your eaves, or see these bees and their holes, call ChemTec Pest Control. While not aggressive, carpenter bees will defend themselves, and without the proper equipment and know-how, they may survive treatment. Call ChemTec today so that these damaging pests don’t run rampant in the sides of your house.
Bed Bug Control in Cliffside Park, NJ
Bed bug control, like any pest control, consists of two elements: prevention and removal. If you’re lucky, prevention will be the only step you’ll ever have to think about. Bed bug prevention consists mostly of good habits for keeping bed bug from walking through the front door. That’s right, bed bugs almost always enter your house through the door, because rather than seeking a place to live and then looking for food, they stick with their food source, which is us, and then make their home close by. Here are some wise practices that have been proven to lessen the chance of bringing bed bugs into your Cliffside Park home:
- Be aware when out and about that bed bugs could be literally anywhere that people are. Inspect seats and places where you plan to spend time for bed bugs before settling in.
- When traveling, guard your luggage and personal items. Never bring luggage into a hotel room until you have thoroughly checked for bed bugs. If they are found, get out!
- Make your door the last line of defense. Wash purchased clothing, as well as clothing that you have worn out in public, in hot water to kill off bed bugs. Avoid purchasing used furniture if at all possible, especially mattresses.
- Know what to look for, and where to look. Bed bugs only grow to 1/4 inch, and like to hide in tiny crevices that offer concealment and protection. Seams of mattresses and furniture, bed frames, night tables, rugs, baseboards, and even electrical sockets may hide bed bugs.
If bed bugs are discovered in your home, it’s time to think about removal, and that means calling for professional help. DIY treatment methods are rarely successful, and bed bugs are incredibly gifted at survival. At ChemTec Pest Control, we have the expertise and equipment to come to your aid in removing bed bugs. With treatments designed to hit fast and hard, and a commitment to follow-through, ChemTec will make sure that hitchhiking parasites have no place in your Cliffside Park home.
