NJ has plenty of bugs around that can end up becoming pests when they invade homes. Some of these bugs are more common than others. NJ homeowners should be familiar with the more common types of insect pests and get help from Ocean County pest control services if needed.

Bed Bugs

Bed bugs are a growing nuisance that have invaded the NJ and NYC area. They are tiny bugs that have a reddish-brown color. Bed bugs feed on the blood of humans, usually as they sleep during the night. However, bed bugs can bite at any time and in almost any location.

Carpenter Ants

These ants are a bit larger than sugar ants and other types of common household ants. Carpenter ants get their name from their behavior, which involves tunneling through wood. This behavior can cause significant damage to homes over time.

Yellow Jackets

These wasps have very painful stings that make them a nuisance to homeowners and a danger to those who are allergic to bee and wasp stings. Yellow jackets have black and yellow coloring like honey bees and bumble bees, but they have smoother bodies. These pests are capable of stinging multiple times since their stingers don’t fall off.
