Summer’s warmer temperatures bring many pests out of hiding for the season. Some of these pests can invade homes, while others can be a nuisance in backyards. Learn more about common summer pests in NJ and when to seek help from Tom’s River pest control professionals.


Ants stay busy during summer looking for food to support their colonies. This means that you might end up with ants in your kitchen, pantry and other areas of your home. Carpenter ants might cause problems in your home by digging through wood in order to expand their colonies, which can cause structural damage.


Cockroaches are common outdoor and indoor summer pests. These bugs can get through tiny cracks in order to enter homes and search for food and water. They can also be seen scurrying around near garbage cans and other outdoor areas.

Mosquitoes and Ticks

Mosquitoes and ticks are common outdoor pests that can make you sick this summer. Mosquitoes carry West Nile virus, while ticks can spread Lyme disease through their bites.
