  • How to Catch a Mouse: Killing It vs. Keeping It Alive

    How to Catch a Mouse: Killing It vs. Keeping It Alive

    Bumping on a mouse in your house is a scary experience. To make the matter worse, the sound that mice make when their gnawing electrical wire and `scratching walls can render you sleepless. 

    Considering these bad experiences and the fact that house mice can spread an array of pandemics such as Lyme disease and salmonella, no one would wish to share a shelter with these annoying rodents. If you spot them in your house, consider removing them soonest possible before they wreak havoc.

    Catching a Mouse Alive

    Although mice are nasty animals, some people would still be moved nearly to tears upon seeing a lifeless mouse. They prefer catching a mouse alive and releasing it somewhere else far away from their houses. 

    If you are one of them and have no idea how to do it, you can use the following to catch a mouse alive:

    1.    A spoon and a bucket

    This mouse-catching approach is practical when you want to trap a mouse that you suspect has been walking on your kitchen’s countertop. Place a deep bucket against the counters and just above it, place a spoon with a peanut dollop on the edge of the counter. 

    The peanut should be on the handle end of the spoon and while the spoon ought to be balanced off the counter’s edge with the end with the bait being above the bucket. 

    When a mouse tries to reach the bait, it, together with the spoon, will fall into the bucket. Since the bucket is too slippery for the mouse to climb, it will have no escape option but to wait for you to determine its fate.  

    1.    A coin, a glass, and bait

    Smear some peanut butter (bait) on the interiors of the glass. Then, put the glass on the ground in an upside-down manner and then put nickel below the glass to support it. 

    The coin should prop up one side of the brim of the glass.  The coin will fall, making the glass to drop when a mouse gets in to reach the peanut butter and the rodent will be trapped inside the glass.

    Mouse Trap: Killing a Mouse Using a Spring-Loaded Trap

    If you want to kill a mouse without using any chemical, then, the use of a spring-loaded trap is the best option. However, you should handle this trap with utmost care since a simple blunder can cause you injuries. Besides, it should be placed in an area with less human and non-targeted animal traffic, else it can do more harm than good. 

    Apply peanut butter on the small paddle of the trap. Then, place the trap in the spot where you suspect or spot mice mostly. Once the mouse tries to reach the bait, the trap will spring, hit the rodent with much force and hold it there until the time you remove it. 

    Since the mouse will die upon the trapping, it is advisable that you dispose it off soonest possible before it starts to decompose and produce a foul smell.   

    One of the drawbacks of attempting to catch a mouse alive is that the rodent has chances to escape and continue to enjoy the comfort of your home. 

    For instance, in the bucket and spoon method, a child or a pet may drop the bucket, and this will give the trapped mouse an opportunity to escape. Besides, if a mouse is trapped inside a glass, your child may lift the glass, and if that happens, the animal will just run away and retreat to its previous or new hideouts in your house.

    On the other hand, once the mouse is killed, you rest assured that it won’t come back again.***

  • How to Get Rid of Stink Bugs

    How to Get Rid of Stink Bugs

    What Are Stink Bugs?

    Stink Bugs are relatively large insects which feed on plants and produce a foul odor when disturbed or killed. If they are found in your home it’s important you know how to get rid of stink bugs before they reproduce. These flat-bodied bugs come in varying colors, including brown to green depending on their respective species as well as geographic locations. An adult stink bug can grow nearly two centimeters long.

    Stink bugs are mostly found indoors during warm seasons as they eat plants in farms and woods. When it becomes cold, the insects migrate to sheltered places to hibernate and avoid the harsh cold conditions outside. They come out from their hibernating grounds during spring when there’s warm weather and move outside where they become active again. If your house is not protected from the entrance of these bugs, you are likely to see them gathering on the walls as well as the windows during the onset of spring as they prepare to move outdoors.  

    Stink bugs rarely bite people but they do so when they feel endangered. Otherwise, they normally feed on plants such as peaches, cherries, apples and soybeans, among others as well as vegetables and fruits.

    Here’s a picture of what a stink bug looks like: 

    How to prevent stink bugs from coming inside

    The most effective way of avoiding an experience with these stink bugs in your house is to prevent them from getting their way inside. There are various measures you can use to prevent stink bugs from entering your home, the best way is blocking entry points.

    • You can use a high-grade silicone to seal small gaps on your walls and foundation.
    • Screens for blocking off vents
    • Weather stripping to fill in spaces in your outside doors.  

    By completely sealing all these entry-points, stink bugs can only get inside when your door is open. 

    Another way of barring stink bugs from invading your indoor space is wiping down your window screens with scented dryer sheets. The insects dislike the scent of dryer sheets and so won’t dare to come near anything with it. The smell of wildflower is also a turn off to the bugs. Therefore, you can also consider growing the plants in your yard to discourage stink bugs from coming close to your house.

    How to get rid of stink bugs

    If you are so unfortunate that stink bugs have already entered your indoor area, don’t panic; there’s something you can do to eliminate them. One thing that you should not do is to touch or squish the insects unless you want to get their smell. Instead, grab the bugs gently using a plastic bag and flush them down your toilet. Alternatively, you can flick them into an empty water bottle, tighten it to prevent the smell of the bugs from coming out of the bottle and then put it outside your house for further disposal afterward. However, the insects are likely to die instantly once they are subjected to extremely cold outdoor weather.

    Another way how to get rid of stink bugs is by using soapy water. Here’s how to do it:

    1. Add water to a one-gallon container and fill it quarter-way.
    2. Add one teaspoonful of liquid soap or detergent to the water
    3. Disturb the stink bucks on your walls so that they fall into the soapy water.
    4. After falling into the water, the bugs will drown and die eventually.

    A solution of hot pepper has also been proved to kill stink bugs.  Hot peppers have a chemical called Capsaicin. The chemical burns the exterior body areas of stink bugs.

    Reproduction of Stink Bugs

    Stink bugs reproduce four times in each year. The adults leave their hibernating grounds to mate. After mating, female bugs normally lay eggs on the underside of the leaves of plants. The eggs then develop into nymphs and the nymphs soon become adults.  

    Calling an exterminator

    If your stink bug problem is completely out of hand and you need assistance, don’t hesitate to call your local exterminator. If you are located in NYC, Brooklyn, or Queens, Control Exterminating can aid you with getting rid of stink bugs.

  • Rat Population: How Many Rats in NYC?

    2 January 2018
    Comments are off for this post

    Rat Population:

    How Many Rats in NYC?

    How many rats in NYC? Estimates vary, but we know the little critters are reproducing more and more and New York’s been creating a plan of action.

    Wikipedia says that contrary to popular belief, (that there are five rats per person in NYC), scientists made a more realistic estimate that the population of rats in NYC is around 2 million, which would only be 20% of the human population in NYC opposed to 5 times.

    New York Rats and Rat Population

    New York City is one of the largest metropolitans in the world. The city hosts a very large population of people. The city also has many hotels, homes and other commercial premises where people spend their days.

    However, the city’s peace has been under threat due to the large population of rats. Rats in NYC have been on the rise in the recent years. The effects of rats in New York have been so devastating that NYC mayor declared total war against these rodents. The mayor, Mr. Bill De Blasio promised to eradicate these rats in the most affected places.

    The Lower Manhattan and Brooklyn are the most rat-infested zones in the city. The mayor promised to eradicate at least 70% of the rats by the end of 2018. In his plan, the mayor intends to cover all dirty floors in publicly used buildings.

    “Downtown rats are more used to household trash, unlike the uptown ones that are used to offices. The study also revealed that rats New York rarely migrate from one place to another.”

    -Control Exterminating


    He also intends to put 336 new rat-proof garbage bins. These bins compact garbage with solar energy. These new bins are supposed to add on the 1,100 bins already present in the city.

    A study conducted in the city revealed very interesting results. The researching team wanted to find whether there existed similarities between rats in the downtown and uptown areas. They found that a New York City rat can be identified according to its residents.

    The rat population in NYC adapt to the environments where they live. Downtown rats are more used to household trash, unlike the uptown ones that are used to offices.

    The study also revealed that rats New York rarely migrate from one place to another. A rat family occupies one resident for many years. This means that the uptown and downtown NYC rats do not mix at any time.

    Devastating Effects of Rats

    These small gnawing mammals are capable of causing devastating damage to homes and offices. A mouse and a rat are capable of entering through a tiny opening. They mostly come to the houses through gaps in the roof and ceiling. These rodents are also excellent swimmers.

    This means that rats can stay in the water for an extended period without dying. Rats can swim their way into the house through sewers and drainage pipes. Once in the house, rats contaminate foods and water. They are also carriers of many diseases that affect human beings.


    “Rats can swim their way into the house through sewers and drainage pipes. Once in the house, rats contaminate foods and water.”

    -Control Exterminating


    Rats can also be very destructive when they gain access to food storage rooms. They gnaw at cereals and other soft materials. Rats are the most destructive pests and thus require to be eradicated.

    A Rodent Infestation Can Be Hazardous to Your Health

    Here are some health problems you may not be aware of that can become a problem when you have a rodent infestation.

    Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome

    You can get HPS (Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome) from a bite or from inhaling the feces or urine of rodents infected with HPS. The worst part is that if you come in contact with HPS, you can develop a life-threatening infection.


    Although other pests carry this same disease, the rodent is the one that is most commonly known to carry Leptospirosis. This disease can be contracting by merely coming into contact with a rodent that is infected or being bitten by one that is infected.

    Symptoms include vomiting, respiratory issues, diarrhea, jaundice and liver failure. Some people with underlying health issues have died from Leptospirosis.

    Rat Bite Fever

    Despite the name of this disease, you don’t necessarily get a rat-bite fever from just being bitten by a rat. You can develop it by being bitten by any other type of rodent. If you’ve developed rat bite fever, you will know because, after a few days, you will develop a rash, fever, chills and muscle aches.

  • Termite Infestation: 9 Warning Signs If You Have Termites in the House

    Termite Infestation:

    9 Warning Signs If You Have Termites in the House

    Termites can be quite sneaky because most people don’t even notice the signs of termites infestation till quite a substantial amount of damage is already done.

    If you look at their tiny white bodies, you would never be able to guess what a menace they can be. We’re talking about termites. These wood-feeding insects cause damages worth $5 billion in America every year. Here we’ll show you how to tell if you have termites.

    While dry wood termites feed on wood that is dry, the subterranean termites live underground and can cause a lot of damage. At Control Exterminating, we specialize in dealing with all kinds of termite infestation in NYC. The first step to controlling a termite infestation is to be able to identify the signs of termites infestation early.

    Here are 9 signs to tell if you have termites in the house:

    #1. Termite shelter tubes

    These structures are clay like and are brown in color. These tubes protect termites from predators and also provide them with the dark and humid environment to store their food. These tubes are between 10 mm to 50 mm in width. We must look out for these tubes as they are a tell-tale sign of termites.

    #2. Subterranean tunnels

    The subterranean termites make subterranean tunnels where they store their food. These tunnels can be almost 20 meters deep in the earth.

    #3. Blowholes in trees

    Both the species make blowholes in trees. The subterranean termites make the more visible holes. When the alates (winged termites) want to come out of the trunk to form a new colony, they cut longitudinal slits in the tree trunk. After the exit is complete, the worker termites seal this hole.

    #4. Termite droppings

    If you find termite feces (also known as frass) in your home, it is a sure sign of infestation. These look like tiny wood colored pellets.

    #5. Earthen packing

    This is a mud-like substance produced by termites working on wood. It can mostly be seen near foundation walls and joints. Both the species of termites can cause damage to foundations.

    #6. Termite noise

    Termites often hollow out wood, leaving only a thin upper layer intact. In places of heavy infestation, an audible tapping noise can be heard. This sound comes when the soldier termites tap their mandibles and heads on wood to signal the rest of the colony.

    “If you find termite feces (also known as frass) in your home, it is a sure sign of infestation. These look like tiny wood colored pellets.”

    Control Exterminating

    #7. Termite wings

    If you see termite with wings around your home, you definitely have an infestation in your home. While subterranean termites swarm during the spring season, this is not the case with dry wood termites. Call a termite control NYC service provider if you see a swarm or discarded wings in your home.

    #8. Sagging floors

    Termites are known to cause extensive damage to wooden floors without showing any signs on the surface. They can completely hollow out wood and make it weak. Squeaky floors or floors that are sagging can also be signs of infestation. If you suspect an infestation, tap on the floor. If you notice a hollow sound, contact Control Exterminating without wasting any more time.

    #9. Tree Nests

    Some termites also make their nests inside tree trunks or in the hollow area of the roots. Initially, these nests are not detectable, but after some time you will notice a large pile of mud near the root of the tree.

    “Termites are known to cause extensive damage to wooden floors without showing any signs on the surface. They can completely hollow out wood and make it weak.”

    Quickly Getting Your Termite Problem Under Control!

    If you are investing in a home or any other type of property you may have to have the home inspected and if termites are present, you might have to rethink the purchase. They are active at night and can go undetected for years.

    Termites eat wood and have also been known to chew on wiring. In both instances, this can be a costly thing to repair. If they are eating on your wood flooring, it will weaken the floor, making it impossible to walk on without harming yourself. If they begin chewing on your wiring, this can cause an electrical fire.

    Both instances can be extremely dangerous and costly. These are some of the most compelling reasons for getting the problem under control quickly. The longer they are allowed to exist, the worse the problem will become.

    Finding a reliable and efficient pest control service in Manhattan, NY, Bronx, Brooklyn, Staten Island is possible when you rely on a reputable service like Control Exterminating. We respond quickly to every type of service requests to ensure your termite problem doesn’t get any worse.***

  • What Are Termites Role in the Environment

    21 November 2017
    Comments are off for this post

    Termites: Pests or Saviors of the Environment?

    What are the first thoughts that come to your mind when you see termites? Is it pests or vermin? Well, think again. According to the researchers at Princeton University termites are saviors, as termites role in the environment is quite significant.

    So, while termites may be a menace if they infest your house, termites role in the world’s ecosystem is significantly important. In fact, only a few of the 3000 known termite species can be considered pests. Be it deserts of Africa, tropical rainforests, temperate woodlands or even your neighborhood garden; they play a crucial role in maintaining the ecosystem.

    Why are termites important to the environment:

    1. Termites help prevent desertification of land.

    Rain is able to seep through the holes dug into the ground by the termites rather than just evaporate. In fact, termite mounds allow the plants around them to thrive on a small percentage of rain that would typically be needed for any vegetation to survive. This allows the plants surrounding termite mounds to germinate and flourish after a withering drought.

    Even termite feces are good for the soil. Its stickiness helps prevent soil erosion. The bacteria in the gut of termites help extract nitrogen from the air and provide this excellent fertilizer to the soil. This tiny vermin mix organic and inorganic matter to help the soil retain its nutrients.

    1. Termites improve the quality of the soil.

    Termites play a significant role in our forests as well. They extract the cellulose present in the wood for food and provide a number of essential substances to improve the soil quality in the forest. Thanks to the symbiotic bacteria and protozoa present in their bodies, termites can eat wood, dung, lichen and even dirt. So, not only do they prevent overcrowding of trees in the forest, but they also provide the correct environment for new life to flourish. The tunnels created by them create waterways that help new plants to grow.

    1. Nourishment for other animals

    Termites are also an essential part of the food chain. Birds, chimpanzees and even ants are known to feed on termites. Being high in protein and fats, they are a good source of nutrition.

    Termites are important for the environment but are still a problem in the home.

    But, this does not mean that we allow termites to take over our homes, and therefore termite removal remains essential. After all the sandy soil and high moisture levels make our homes the perfect environment for these pests – making pest control NYC very crucial.

    Of course, not, there are some proactive steps that we can take to prevent termite infestation in our homes.

    • It is essential to remove any old rotting stumps and roots in your yard.
    • Always store firewood at least 20 feet away from the house.
    • Also, try and eliminate wood-to-ground contact of your foundation. Damp wood can be one of the biggest cause of termite infestation in our homes.
    • Keep a constant check on your wooden floors and doors for infestation.

    Termites have a role in the environment, not in your house.

    However, if in spite of all these efforts, these pesky pests do infest your home you need to control your termite infestation. This should be done in an environmentally friendly manner, using treatments that are effective and non-hazardous to your family and pets. In NYC Control Exterminating is the one-stop answer to all your pest control worries. Not only do they eradicate termites from your home in the most efficient manner, but they also do it in the most environmentally friendly way.

    Hornets – How to Eliminate the Threat

    If you have been noticing hornets around your property, we wouldn’t recommend that you ignore that they are there. They can become extremely aggressive and sting. A hornet sting is very painful and for those who are allergic to their venom, it can cause them to require medical attention. Don’t take this chance; instead, seek the services of professional pest control services. At Control Exterminating in New York, we have been able to help hundreds of people get rid of the problem they have been experiencing with hornets. When you have hornets around you, there is likely a nest nearby. The worse thing that you can do is try to knock down the nest. If you thought you had a problem, you haven’t seen anything yet. You can eliminate the threat of being stung by reaching out to our professional NY exterminators today.

    Hornets NYC: Why Are They Dangerous?

    If you have hornets, you definitely wouldn’t want them coming inside your home. We can help you make sure that this doesn’t happen to you by sealing up the areas they could get in through. We would also use materials to help us prevent them from getting inside. If there are trees and bushes outside your windows, it is best to keep them trimmed to avoid the possibility of them getting in through cracks and crevices in or around your home. Certain types of hornets will begin building aerial nests inside bushes, trees and shrubs. When we begin to work on getting rid of the nest around your home, we might need to wait until no one else is coming or leaving your home. It might even require more than one visit to make sure all of the hornets are out of the nest. After such time, we can then remove the nest.

    Solving Your Fruit Fly Infestation Problem

    If you are not keen on having fruit flies in your home, especially your kitchen, what are you prepared to do about it? In New York, many homeowners depend on the services of professional pest control services. Control Exterminating is the preferred pest control service because of how thorough our exterminators are in identifying the problem. They make sure they know exactly what type of fruit fly they are dealing with so that they can correctly handle your infestation problem.


    Since there are several types of species, it is important to accurately identify the type of fly so that they can properly treat the problem. Fruit flies will feed on sugary foods and drinks. If you happen to make a spill and it isn’t completely and thoroughly wiped clean, you could begin to experience a problem with fruit flies. In some instances, people who have fruit flies in their kitchen have spilled something that has not been whipped up completely. This is something you can do to ensure you don’t have fruit flies.

    Eliminating the Fruit Fly Infestation

    The only way to completely get rid of your fruit fly infestation problem is to properly dispose of the rotten fruit you have in or around your home. Not only should you get rid of the fruit that has gone bad but you will also have to properly dispose of vegetables that are no longer any good. Until the problem has been completely resolved, make sure you keep any newly purchased fruit and vegetables in the refrigerator. Don’t allow your home to be a breeding ground for fruit flies by ignoring the problem. Act quickly to eliminate the problem. When you see a problem, address it quickly so that you do not experience an even bigger problem than you already have.
