Products and Services
Cockroaches are attracted to warm, moist environments and they easily adapt to their environment. The cockroach prefers food sources such as sweets, starches and meat products, but they will eat almost anything organic in nature including cheese, dried skin flakes, glue and even beer. To avoid an infestation keep food in tightly sealed containers and do not allow dirty dishes to pile up in the sink overnight.
Our area has been troubled for several years by the Brown Marmorated Stinkbug. These pests are fairly new to the east coast and were first found in Allentown, PA in 1998. Though considered household pests, they don't bite or eat our food. Stink bugs enter homes in the Fall to find a place to overwinter and find shelter from the cold. In the winter, when inside air temperatures increase or on a warm day, these bugs may emerge inside your home. They are about a half to one inch long with a mottled brown color and are named for the unpleasant odor they emit when aggravated or crushed. Some describe the smell as similar to a skunk's odor and find it difficult to wash off hands.
Homeowners who spot spiders in the interior of the residence will likely need to procure an exterminator as soon as possible. Some spider species, in fact, are poisonous. Black widows, which are found in most regions of the country, can be especially dangerous to small children and pets. We've got the knowledge and expertise to deal with any spider infestation. The critters can be removed from the various nooks and crannies of the household before they have a chance to spread to other areas.
