    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.

    Identifying Infestation Problems During Winter: At Control Exterminating Pest Control in Manhattan, NY, we receive a lot of phone calls during the winter months due to pest problems.

    This isn’t uncommon since we know that during this time of the year, rodents, spiders and other pest, go indoors to find food or to hibernate until it is warming outside.

    This can pose a serious problem to you if you have them inside your home because they may lay eggs that eventually hatch. If you live in an older house, this problem seems to be worse since the home likely has a variety of ways to get inside. These pests may already be inside your home and you’re just not aware of it because you don’t know the signs of an infestation.

    Homeowners and businesses in Staten Island, Brooklyn, Bronx, and Queens, NY, all rely on us to help them find and treat their infestations. We are happy perform an inspection for you but there are some signs that you can check for on your own, which give you an indication of a possible infestation.

    Identifying Infestation Problems During Winter

    Sounds Within the Walls

    If you notice a scratching sound coming from inside your walls, this might be a sign of a rodent problem.

    They tend to nest and breed in homes during the colder times of the year. We use baiting stations and other types of traps to capture any that rodents you might notice.

    Fecal Matter or Urine

    Look around your pantry or cabinets to see if you notice fecal matter. This may resemble black grains of rice. Diseases are spread through the fecal matter of rodents.

    Lights Going On/Off

    This means that you have something chewing on your electrical wires. This can be dangerous and should be attended to right away.
