- INTRODUCING -
An army of ants can easily ruin a nice picnic in the spring, but it’s much more frustrating when you catch them crawling around in the kitchen. Ants can infiltrate homes very easily through cracks in the wall or exposed wires.
Once they find a way in, these pesky bugs search for sweets, meats, breads and other foods in your kitchen. They can contaminate your food and sneak around other areas of your home, such as sinks, showers and dishwashers.
Each year, termites invade millions of homes, causing billions of dollars in damage that’s rarely covered by homeowners insurance. While they’re found in every state except Alaska, they are a significant threat everywhere.
It’s not a matter of if your home will encounter termites but when, making termite control a necessity. A thorough inspection and home evaluation by a licensed termite professional is the first step in protecting your investment from these voracious pests.
Mice and rats pose many threats to you, your family and your home. When they take up residence, they rarely travel alone, often bringing in fleas, mites, ticks and lice as well. Micro droplets of mouse urine can trigger allergic reactions in children.
Rats will chew through just about anything when nesting, including wiring, which can cause fires. Rats are also known to urinate on and eat stored foods. Both mice and rats can transmit numerous diseases. Obviously, mice and rat control is a serious matter.
There is nothing worse than turning on the lights and seeing a cockroach scurry across the room, back into its hiding place between your walls. Nobody wants these resilient pests sneaking around their house — if someone sees a roach in their bedroom, don’t be surprised if they decide to sleep on the couch later that night.
Roaches can survive on whatever food source is nearby, including hair, sewage or sweets and have been known to carry diseases such as Salmonella, Staphylococcus, Streptococcus and Escherichia coli.
The resurgence of bed bugs in recent years has brought renewed relevance to the old saying, "Sleep tight. Don't let the bed bugs bite." Almost unheard of after World War II, the ban on DDT and the increase in international travel are largely to blame for their reemergence.
Though beds may be ground zero for these pesky bugs, they can be found almost anywhere, including hospitals, airplanes, movie theaters and even department stores.
Arachnophobia is a fear of spiders, and there are very few people in the world who can claim they don’t share this common condition. Only some spiders are venomous, but they’re still unwelcome guests in any home.
Because some of these pests are dangerous, spider control should always be handled by professionals — and our certified experts at Staten Island Pest Control have you covered.
Centipedes originally earned their name from the idea that they had 100 legs. Actually, these elongated arthropods have between 15 and 177 pairs of legs divided between each segment of their red-brown bodies.
These pests are particularly vivacious, because, unlike most insects, their average lifespan ranges from two to five years. Also, they maneuver extremely well and can evade attacks from predators, but our professional centipede extermination ensures they can’t hide.
The population of fleas and ticks has been steadily rising in recent years as these pests become increasingly resistant to traditional methods of treatment. Ticks and fleas in the house can be very difficult to control because of the resistance they have developed.
They can pose a serious health risk to humans and pets. Pest Control of Staten Island offers both flea control and tick control services for to protect your home and family.
