House Mouse - mus domesticus

 

Tackling rodent infestations involves dealing with structural and sanitary issues - and the time to check your South Jersey home is NOW! As the cool weather settles in, rodents begin to head indoors, looking for warm places to nest.

 

 

1. Look for the signs of rodent's presence.

 

Mice come in to explore and get food, and they'll continue to come and go as long as there are entry points.

 

Tell-tale signs of mice include "rub marks" on walls from their oily fur and droppings that are smaller than a grain of rice with pointy edges.

 

It's helpful to be aware what attracts vermin. Infestations can be more common near schools and restaurants — where lots of trash bags are piled up with plenty of food for rodents. Digging and demolition disturb established populations that will head off looking for a new home.

Brown Marmorated Stink Bug

 

The temperatures are beginning to dip and you have probably seen Stink Bugs crawling on your screens or fluttering around your house. You can’t crush them, because they secrete a musty scent when frightened, a defensive technique that has earned them their name—Stink Bugs.

 

They are looking to overwinter in your South Jersey home. They will enter your home during the fall and may remain active within the home throughout the winter. They will certainly become active again in the spring as the weather warms up and they begin to exit your home.
