While it would be nice to think that the mice would stay away and not add to the stress of this uncertain time, that is not the case. Because homeowners are home round the clock now, this can actually be a time when mice and rats increase because of the available food that might be left on tables and counters and dropped on the floor. This doesn’t necessarily mean that the home is less clean, just that there is more food available and more often. 

Some signs of a rodent infestation can be sightings of droppings and gnawed holes in the cabinets and pantry. If you have a pet, you might notice unusual behavior in your pet when the rodents are nearby. In addition, there can scratching and scampering noises within the cabinets and walls that alert you to their presence. 

A professional exterminator has the tools and resources to locate the entry and exit points of the rodents to seal them off. Locating the nests, they can remove these so that the rodents have nowhere to live along with pesticide-free rodent removal services. 


Bed Bugs 

If you have noticed small, red bites on your arms and shoulders, you could have a bed bug infestation. These creatures make their home in the cracks and crevices of your bed frame, headboard, and corners of the room and closet. They come out at night to bite you, leaving behind a tiny bite, little dots of blood on the sheets and mattress pad, and even tiny shells from their covering. 

Bed bugs only increase and they will never go away without treatment from a professional exterminator. Because they are too tiny to detect visually, a trained exterminator has dogs that can sniff out those bugs quickly and effectively. Once the bed bugs have been located, they come in with safe, non-repellant chemicals and industrial strength steam to kill the bugs. 



Termites can cause serious structural damage to your NYC home with colonies that can number into the thousands. Some signs of termites can include drooping drywall, peeling paint, and small pinholes in the wall. Buckling floors and squeaky floors can also be indicators of termite infestation. Because your home is a huge investment for you, don’t delay in seeking treatment for possible termite problems.

A trained NYC pest exterminator has the eco-friendly, family and pet safe treatment to get rid of the entire colony—guaranteed. With bait stations that are placed outside the home and not accessible to your pets or children, the termites can be removed completely and safely.

When you need continued pest control, turn to the professionals with the effective, safe, and environment-friendly methods that won’t harm your family or pets while everyone stays home. Protect your NYC home with pest removal services that guarantee that pests don’t stand a chance against the treatment methods.
