What kind of pests are there and what damage do they cause?
Yellow Jackets, a type of wasp, are common throughout regions in NJ. Yellow Jackets use wood from your home to create nests for their young. These nests make your home a breeding ground for new wasps, which will increase their presence in your backyard and home. Not only do they cause physical damage to your house, but Yellow Jackets have a pronounced stinger that can be deadly to many: especially the elder, youth, and pets. These wasps pose a serious threat and should be removed by a professional.
Carpenter ants, as many of you are aware, can cause damage to your home. Contrary to popular belief, these ants do not actually eat the wood, but rather remove it so they can dig burrows for their colony. As an expert from the university of Michigan said, “These areas [eaten out wood] are clean, i.e. they do not contain sawdust or other debris, and are smooth, with a well sanded appearance,” as seen in this photo: How do I prevent insects from getting inside my home or building and causing damage?
