Washington Township and neighboring communities in New Jersey are home to a diverse array of pests. Some pests hunker down indoors and are active all year. Others cause seasonal problems that increase during the warm, humid summers and decrease during the frigid winters. Most insects create specific concerns for residents. For example, folks worry about spiders because of their bites. Bed bugs cause many sleepless nights. Ants are a nuisance when their armies march across your driveway and into your kitchen. At Lethal Pest Solutions, our professional staff members are experts at controlling these common pests.

Spider Control

New Jersey is home to more than 3,000 spider species. In Washington Township and surrounding communities, residents encounter many unique spider classes, such as orb weavers, funnel weavers, daddy longlegs, jumping spiders, wolf spiders and others. Poisonous black widow spiders are found throughout the state, but even nonvenomous species can cause irritating bites. Depending on the type, adults or egg sacs overwinter. In the spring, they awaken along with their prey. Spiders are famous for feeding on mosquitoes, mites, and other pests. Most folks are content to live alongside a few outdoor spiders, but these populations become problematic when they multiply inside homes. Effective control measures eliminate spider infestations without harming your family or the environment.

Ant Extermination

Ants are the most common household pest in Washington Township. Roughly 50 ant species thrive in New Jersey’s urban and suburban communities, but just 12 varieties cause indoor infestations. Argentine, pavement, acrobat, pharaoh and odorous house ants are top offenders. Sweets and food residue attract hordes of ants. The workers carry food back to the colonies, which are often located under driveways, sidewalks, and foundations. Chemical treatments cannot reach these areas, so baits are much more effective. Black carpenter ants frequently damage buildings in Washington Township and the surrounding area. They build nests in lumber and damp or rotting wood, and they cause substantial structural damage during the process.

Bed Bug Control

Bed bugs sneak into homes without being detected. Usually, residents don’t notice the problem until it has become a full-blown infestation. Increasing travel has contributed to the pest’s global resurgence. For years, experts believed that bed bugs could not transmit diseases.

Bed bugs invade homes, dorms, hotels, assisted living facilities and schools. The adults resemble flattened apple seeds. Bed bugs can go for months without feeding, but the younger instars need frequent meals to mature. Irritating welts are a common sign of infestations although some folks are asymptomatic.
