Top Summer Pests Found in NJ Homes


The summer months bring a lot of bugs and other pests out of hiding. You’ll need to be on the alert for pests both inside and outside when it’s warm out. Which kinds of pests might you need pest control in Monmouth County for this summer? Keep an eye out for the following pests:

Stinging Insects

Wasps, hornets and bees can become an outdoor nuisance for NJ homeowners in summer. Some of these insects aggressively defend their nests, which means you’re at risk of being stung. This can be a serious threat if you or a loved one has an allergy to their venom.

Biting Insects

Mosquitoes and ticks are also common types of summer pests. These bugs feed on blood and can transmit diseases when they bite people and pets. Keeping your skin covered and using mosquito and tick repellent products can help lower your risk of being bitten.

Other Pests

Ants and cockroaches are out in larger numbers during the summer months in order to search for crumbs and other things to eat. Rats and mice come out at night to look for food as well. These insect and rodent pests can invade your home and spread harmful germs around. Other pests, such as termites, are a problem for NJ homeowners all year round, not just in summer.
