Not A Creature Was Stirring, Not Even A Mouse (Or Roach)

We know what you’re thinking, that’s not how the story goes and you’re right. But friends, sadly we report that during the holiday season and throughout the winter months, mice and roaches are stirring. In fact, they’re quite active in homes and businesses in Holmdel, Mountain Lakes, Paramus, and Livingston as well as throughout Arrow’s multi-county service area.

Types of mice in New Jersey

Types of roaches in New Jersey 

Did you know that there are over 4,000 species of cockroaches in existence around the world? Thankfully there are only a handful of roaches New Jersey property owners should be aware of. Please note, that while our region does experience issues with Pennsylvania wood cockroaches, they are not typically a problem indoors nor are they a significant threat.

Why are mice and roaches a problem during the winter months?

Who doesn’t enjoy a warm home filled with tasty treats? Not us and certainly not mice and cockroaches. When the temperatures outside cool, both of these pests start looking for shelter that will protect them from the winter elements. And since food sources are limited during the winter months, if a home has plenty of food to keep their bellies full, you can be sure they’ll stick around. Why they may even reproduce while they’re tucked away comfortably in your attic, behind sheet rock, or hanging out in the basement, garage, or other areas of your home.   

How to eliminate mice and cockroaches

If you’ve seen even a single mouse or roach in your home, do not think for a single second, that this is the whole of the problem. Oh no, for where you see on of either pest, there are sure to be more nearby. And unfortunately, without proper treatment, they are extremely hard to get rid of.
