Common Types of Pests We Encounter
There are many different pests found in buildings today. The usual ants and cockroaches are always an issue, but we have experience dealing with many other unwanted visitors, such as mice, birds, spiders, bedbugs, and much more. The diverse base of insects and animals that we deal with has given us a lot of experience in dealing with pests.
The problem can be both inside the building and outside it, with the potential for damage, mess, and even health issues present with many pests. Many people are scared of spiders, even though most species pose little risk. On the other hand, serious infestations like Bed Bugs must be totally eliminated. Still other pests are simply noisy or messy, like Canada geese. Others create an unpleasant image for a business, such as when opossums are making midnight raids in a restaurant’s garbage cans.
For most people, just identifying the pest can be a real problem. If it’s mammals, birds, or other wildlife, we can examine the damage and tracks to figure out what the issue is. If you’ve killed an insect, we have an entomologist on staff who can identify what the pest is and work with our technicians to develop a course of action for eliminating it safely.
How We Keep Things Environmentally Friendly
We have the experience to know what conditions are favoring the pest population, and we know what to do to change those conditions and eliminate the problem. That knowledge is our most powerful tool, and we’ve built it through decades of experience. Changes to the local environment can sometimes be all it takes to get a pest to move out of the area. Because we understand how effective those changes can be, we are able to take a more Eco-friendly approach to dealing with pests in residential, commercial, or institutional settings throughout NYC and NJ.
It’s all about the mindset. Our company has always prided itself on providing excellent customer service, so when more and more of our clients began requesting pest control methods that were environmentally safe, we listened.
Tools, Technology & Technicians You Can Count On for Eco-Sensitive Pest Management
What sets us apart from so many pest treatment firms is our focus on prevention and exclusion. Wildlife like opossums and raccoons are present in our environment, and we cannot eliminate them. The task for us is to provide exclusion services for our clients to keep the nuisance animals in the appropriate locations.
Sometimes exclusion isn’t the best option, however. Nuisance pests such as birds can be excluded from buildings, but their presence on the grounds of churches, schools, businesses, and homes results in a messy and often frustrating experience for everyone. This is where we utilize our skills in habitat modification to encourage the pest to find a location that is more compatible with them. That’s where our unique tools, technology, and technicians come in. We’ll be able to identify the best and most environmentally safe strategy for dealing with your pest problem so that we won’t hurt wildlife or humans.
Most consumers today have abandoned the idea of doing whatever it takes to eliminate a pest. They realize that simply spraying chemicals to eliminate unwanted bugs is not ideal for the safety of humans, pets, wildlife, and the environment in general. They want an approach to pest problems that eliminates the issue they’re experiencing without creating a threat to their health.
Just as we have been doing for 90 years, we have listened to our customers. We’re ready to address your pest issues in whatever way you need us to–with prevention and exclusion, habitat modification, or something in between. You’ll see your pest problem taken care of without the excessive use of chemicals. Contact Standard Pest Management today for all your eco-friendly pest solutions.
