New Jersey House Ants: Why control with treatment?

The spring weather has many people asking, what are my options for treating house ants?

Controlling ants can be challenging and often frustrating to the homeowner but understanding how pest treatment can defeat an ant colony can help make the process smoother.

Eastern pest control technicians will apply insecticide around the home to help reduce the risk of ant populations entering .  The technicians will seek out all potential entry ways including crawl space doors, vents, utility openings and the space around siding as well as any cracks in bricks or foundation.

The treatment creates  a protective barrier that helps keep your home ant-free on the inside and out!



NJ, cold weather and termite swarmers

We received a call today (Feb 18, 2014)from a customer that said he had termite swarmers. We sent a tech out to Lawrenceville and confirmed he had indeed termite swarmers. I thought no way at first until I asked him if he had a slab type home. He confirmed that he did. Slab homes with radiant heat can fool termite swarmers into thinking its warm out, then they swarm. So NJ residents beware. Termites can swarm in the winter.


What should I expect to pay for a termite treatment?

In general termite treatment costs vary according to the size of the home.

The very best chemical to treat with is Termidor.  There is nothing that gets rid of

termites better than Termidor. We at Eastern have been treating homes with Termidor for over 10 years.

We also have specials that are advertised on google that can save you money on treatments.

Will the snow keep the bugs down in the Spring?


It seems there is a concern amoung pest control companies that the frigid temperatures will have an effect on the coming season.

The concern is valid. The cold temperatures can kill egg larvae and insects that overwinter in bark, mulch, debris etc.

For pest control companies we may have  to adapt to a slower than normal season.

Termites may not be effected as they can remain safe under the frost line along with certain ants. 800-229-3472
