How Do I Choose a Manalapan, NJ Exterminator?

Posted by: Cooper Pest

Is your Manalapan, NJ home in need of a pest control professional but you are unsure who to call? There are so many options when it comes to extermination or pest control. However, it is best first to understand what the difference is between exterminators and pest control professionals.

Exterminators or Pest Control…What do I need?

There are several key differences between exterminators and pest management professionals. Although the end goal for both is the same by eliminating the unwanted pests, the way exterminators and pest control companies go about that can be very different.

Exterminators rely on pesticides to eliminate the unwanted pests, using chemicals that could be more toxic than necessary whereas a pest control professional will focus on why the pests are present and look to alter the conditions that attracted them in the first place.

If chemicals become necessary, the pest management professional will use more environmentally friendly products to get rid of the pests. Pest control companies tend to use products that are just as effective on the bugs but have little odor, are much less toxic to humans and pets and are applied in a very targeted fashion. Some treatments even completely eliminate the use of pesticides. 

The biggest difference is that pest management professionals look for long-term solutions, rather than simply spraying chemicals to kill the pests you see.

What are Common of Pest Does Manalapan, NJ?

Manalapan homeowners deal with a variety of pests, so when you are hiring an exterminator or pest control company, you want to ensure that they are well-versed in dealing with a wide-range of pests.

Some common household pests that Manalapan homeowners typically deal with are:

  • Ants
  • Termites
  • Mosquitoes
  • Stink bugs
  • Mice
  • Carpenter bees
  • Wasps and Yellow Jackets
  • Bed bugs

With each of these pests, there are specific ways that their eradication needs to be addressed. You cannot treat an ant problem the same way you would treat for termites, in fact, there are even differences in how different types of ants are best controlled. At Cooper Pest Solutions, we believe to effectively eliminate unwanted pests is to understand the biology and behavior of the bug.

We have specifically designed programs by our staff entomologists to prevent and eliminate all different types of pests based on scientific research. We understand the importance pests have on the environment, and we take that into consideration when we are designing our programs and treating your home.

Can I Purchase a Year-round Prevention for my Manalapan, NJ Home?

If you are looking to prevent your home from many of the common household crawling and stinging insects as well as rodents, Cooper Pest Solutions offers two different year-round preventive services.

Cooper Pest Solutions’ most popular service among their clients is the Home Intensive Service Plan. This plan is a preventive pest and rodent program for homeowners who want year-round protection. The service plan includes four preventive services per year. Each service includes a detailed 30-point inspection report with detailed findings as well as providing you with important recommendations for your home. Each year you will receive three exterior maintenance services (March – November) and one interior service (December – February). 

The Home Traditional Service Plan from Cooper Pest Solutions is also valuable for Manalapan, NJ homeowners who want protection from common crawling insects and mice. The Traditional Service Plan includes the same four preventive services a year like the Intensive Service Plan, however, there are several pests excluded from the Traditional plan.

There are a few differences between the two service plans, including the amount of pests included in the service plan. The Home Intensive Service Plan includes Carpenter Ants, several stinging insects like wasps, fleas, and much more. The Home Intensive Service Plan also includes any trimming or pruning that would encourage pest entry into the home. Additionally, the Intensive Service Plan includes other structures that may be prone to pest activity on your property, such as playsets, sheds, mailboxes, or pool houses.

Depending on your needs and budget, Cooper Pest Solutions will determine what service plan will best fit your needs.
