Top Summer Pests in NJ Homes

Year Round Problem
Year Round Problem

Summer is bug weather. Numerous insects thrive in Monmouth County, New Jersey’s summertime heat and humidity. Ants, termites, fleas, ticks, mosquitoes, bed bugs, crickets, cockroaches, earwigs, millipedes, bees, wasps and a seemingly endless list of creepy crawlies explode in number during the summer months.

Invasive Home Pests

Most insects are content to stay outdoors where shelter and food are easy to find during the summer. It is only when they inadvertently wander into your home while foraging that many insects become pests. It won’t be until early fall when stink bugs, box elder bugs, ladybugs, crickets and other overwintering problem insects start coming indoors in search of winter shelter that Monmouth County homeowners will feel that their homes are under siege.

However, there are year-round pests like wood destroying termites and carpenter ants that frequently take up residence in Monmouth County homes and can cause considerable structural damage when they do. Certain pests like cockroaches and ants are also frequent home invaders, finding plentiful food supplies in our kitchens and comfortable shelter behind appliances and cabinetry.

Outdoor Yard Pests

Even when insects do not invade our homes, we can find their presence intolerable when they locate their nests or hives in our yards. Stinging bees and wasps and disease carrying mosquitoes, ticks and fleas can turn Ocean County yards into danger zones and wood-destroying carpenter bees can chase us off our porches and decks.
