Central New Jersey is home to numerous insects and wild animals, including many pests. Act Fast Termite & Pest Control has helped many regional home and business owners by getting rid of these pests. Some of the most common pests in the area are bed bugs, termites, ants, rodents, and wild animals.
When DDT was introduced in the 1940s, it affected bed bug populations to the point that they no longer posed a threat in the United States. Unfortunately, their numbers surged in the early 1990s. Bed bug bites often lead to itchy rashes and bumps on the skin as well as psychological symptoms.
Ants and termites may have similar appearances, but they cause very different problems for homeowners. Termites are not aggressive toward humans, and the damage that they cause is restricted to wooden components of homes and other buildings. Ants, on the other hand, pose a serious threat to human health. In addition to their painful bites, ants harm people by spreading bacteria that they collect while crawling on dirty surfaces.
In New Jersey, wildlife species such as raccoons, skunks, and groundhogs can transmit rabies and other diseases to humans and their pets. Raccoons are some of the most infectious animals in the state, and they transmit roundworm and canine distemper to dogs. Rodents that invade homes such as mice and squirrels can also cause health problems. These animals often enter homes to access food, and they can contaminate any food that they touch with bacteria and viruses.
