Mendham is a small borough in New Jersey with a population of approximately 5,000. With small-town charm, a country-like atmosphere and gorgeous natural scenery, Mendham represents rural America at its best. It offers all four seasons in glowing color with beautiful autumns that are relished by townspeople and tourists alike. It also boasts historical landmarks, such as the Phoenix House and the Black Horse Inn. However, it retains a direct link to the bustle of metropolitan life by its convenient location just 40 miles west of Manhattan.
With all of the older structures in the community, it is no wonder that many types of pests are lured into homes and businesses by the promises of warmth during the winter and the abundance of damp, wooden spaces all year long. Colonial and Victorian-style homes are often made exclusively of wood, drawing in such pests as ants and termites. Even businesses may experience pest control problems that can damage their reputations and decrease their business. At PermaKill Exterminating, it is our job to keep Mendham clean and welcoming to tourists and comfortable for residents by keeping pests at bay with our safe and reliable treatments.
Ants are some of the smallest pests but are also some of the most irritating ones in homes and businesses. While we treat all types of ants, the most problematic variety is the carpenter ant, which can damage the structure of a wooden building. Carpenter ants love wood, particularly wood that is slightly damp. They will gnaw through it much like termites would. Over time, they will weaken the building. Plus, their numbers can quickly escalate in a short period.
Therefore, it is important to get a handle on carpenter ant populations as quickly as possible. Many times, all that is needed is a quick outdoor treatment if the ants have not yet set up their nests inside the home. Exterior spray is safe for children and pets to be around once it has dried. For ants that have begun nesting inside the home, we offer both liquid and dusting treatments depending on the area where ants are hiding. We can treat basements and attics as well as kitchens and bathrooms. These areas are most frequently targeted by ants because of their higher levels of humidity.
Rodents that bother homes and businesses are usually smaller animals that are trying to get into the building through holes or cracks around the foundation. They are often lured by the warmth during the winter months. However, once they are in the building, they can procreate quickly, turning a minor problem into a major one in no time at all. Therefore, it is vital that individuals seek treatments for rodent infestations quickly.
At PermaKill Exterminating, we use either baits or traps depending on how big of a rodent problem there is and where the rodents are hiding. For example, we never want to trap a rodent within a wall where it will begin to create a bad odor. Most often, we deal with mice. However, rats, squirrels, and other rodents can cause problems both inside and outside a building. After our initial treatment, we return in approximately a week to reevaluate.
Bees may be necessary for the health of the environment and even for our food supply, but they can be a nuisance if they build their nests too close to homes. Bees are great boons to communities because they pollinate all types of plants. However, they are irksome and dangerous when they are irritated, which can happen when people are constantly walking past the hive.
Before starting with treatment, we will thoroughly evaluate the area to determine the cause and the extent of the bee problem. When it comes time to treat, our specially trained professionals use unique tools to remove bees safely while saving hives and nests whenever possible.
Of course, we can also help remove the nests of other stinging insects, such as wasps and hornets. All of these stinging insects can cause structural damage to buildings through their nests as well as health concerns to those who are allergic to their stings.
