Mice seek the shelter of warmer locations as New Jersey's cooler weather approaches each Fall. As the mice settle in to a nice cozy attic space, they begin to reproduce. Attics provide shelter - away from predators, and mice flourish. It doesn't take long until there is a population boom and we are flooded with calls in the early winter.

Micro droplets of mouse urine can cause allergies in children. Mice can also bring fleas, mites, ticks and lice into your home.

The population boom can be prevented with a regular rodenticide treatments. This Fall, be sure to prepare for mice with your Superior Solution!

Bed bugs (picture above) likely get their name from their habit of feeding on humans while they sleep in their beds. They are found in virtually every place people tend to gather, including residences, hotels, schools, offices, retail stores and even public transportation, bed bugs can be found anywhere in New Jersey.

Bed bugs like to travel and are good hitchhikers. They will hide in suitcases, boxes and shoes to be near a food supply. They are elusive, nocturnal creatures. They can hide behind baseboards and in cracks, crevices, and folded areas of beds, bedding and adjacent furniture, especially mattresses and box springs. Bed bugs can also hide in electrical switchplates, picture frames, wallpaper and nearly anywhere inside a home, car, bus, or other shelter. Bed bugs usually come out at night for a blood meal. However, they are opportunistic insects and can take a blood meal during the day, especially in heavily-infested areas. Bed bugs usually require 5-10 minutes to engorge with blood. After feeding, they move to secluded places and hide for 5-10 days. During this time in the bed bug life cycle, they do not feed but instead digest their meal, mate, and lay eggs.

Turn up the heat on bed bugs!

Our approach to exterminating bed bugs is simple and effective and takes only one day. First, we send an unmarked vehicle to your house so no one is aware your house has bed bugs, then we assess the situation with experience and knowledge gathered throughout 30 years of specialized work.

Once assessed, we then begin to set up the area for our thermal remediation treatment which gets hot enough to penetrate the walls, ceilings, furniture and fabrics in your house to eliminate the bed bugs. We run the thermal remediation treatment through generators, so all the electricity used is supplied by us, not you.

After, our thermal remediation sensors ensure each space is heated to a high enough temperature, then our thermal remediation fans push out the air in order to get clean, fresh air back into the space.

When you return home the bed bugs are gone. One day. One treatment. Safe and effective -The Superior Solution.

Fact #1: Colonies are bigger than the average ant farm.

Ant colonies in New Jersey come in literally all shapes and sizes. A few species live in colonies of only a few dozen ants; however, the average ant colony contains thousands of individual ants. Smaller colonies live in natural crevices or openings while larger colonies create vast nests and forage for supplies and food. There are also super colonies around the world that can contain more than 300 million individuals. These super colonies have been identified in Japan, Australia, the United States, and southern Europe.

Fact #2: Ants have specific jobs.

Ants are very social insects, and they divide jobs among different types of ants in each colony. The queen or queens have only one job - to lay eggs. All other female ants are workers; they feed the larvae, take out the colony's trash, forage for food and supplies, or defend the nest. Male ants' only job is to mate with the queen.

Fact #3: Ants don't have ears.

Instead of hearing through auditory canals, ants "hear" by feeling vibrations in the ground. Special sensors on their feet and on their knees help ants interpret signals from their surroundings. They also use their antennae and the hairs on their body to feel around while foraging for food.

Fact #4: One ant species is exclusively female.

Researchers have yet to find a male of the species M. smithii. The queen ant reproduces asexually, so all offspring are clones of the queen. This species is found in several countries of Central America and most countries of South America.

Fact #5: Ants can become zombies.

Perhaps the strangest ant fact, there is a species of fungus that infects ants and takes control of their bodies. The fungus finds its way underneath the ant's exoskeleton and begins to consume soft tissue. Shortly after, by unknown mechanisms, it causes the ant to leave its colony. The ant then finds a leaf, bites it with a "death grip," and dies. A few days later, the fungus releases spores to infect more ants. Some ant species have learned to recognize infected colony mates and will carry them far away to protect the rest of the colony.

Fact #6: Ants can lift 10-50 times their body weight.

Because ants are so small, their muscles are thicker relative to their body mass than in larger animals. This allows ants to carry objects much heavier and bigger than them. To put it into perspective, if humans could lift 10 times their weight, a 200-pound man could lift a small car above his head.

Fact #7: Some ants are homeless.

Not all ant species build nests. A group of about 200 species known as army ants have two phases of their life: nomad and stationary. During the colony's nomad phase, the ants travel all day, attacking other colonies and insects they encounter for food. At night, they build a temporary nest and keep moving the next morning. The only time they stop traveling is during the stationary phase when the queen lays eggs and the colony waits for them to hatch. During this time, the worker ants make a nest out of their own bodies to protect the queen, the food, and the eggs.

Fact #8: Ants are found (almost) everywhere on Earth.

Ants are found on every continent on Earth except Antarctica. A few islands such as Greenland do not have any native ant species, but individual ants have been brought in through human travel. The vast distribution of ants is rivaled only by that of humans. Very impressive for such little guys!

Despite how fascinating these ant facts may be, ant control and management around the home are important for health and safety reasons. If you suspect an ant infestation, visit www.PestSolutionsNJ.com
