More About Our Termite Solutions

For years, homeowners in South Jersey and Eastern Pennsylvania have been looking for an inexpensive alternative to the traditional liquid treatments when battling termites. We're happy to tell you that your search is over. Recent innovations in termite baiting have been tested and retested, and the results are impressive. Bait systems actually eliminate the termite colony, giving you the peace of mind that termites are not destroying your home. And all this happens without drilling porches, patios, sidewalks, garage floors, or digging up flower beds, lawns and gardens.

Termite bait is contained in a green station placed in the ground where termites forage. Once the termites find the station, they begin eating the bait inside. Next, the bait is passed to other colony castes until it reaches the Queen. Once the Queen is eliminated, the colony cannot survive on its own and dies off as well.

 

When you call Hoffman's Exterminating for termite treatment, each station in the termite-baiting process is checked to ensure the bait is palatable and plentiful. If we detect termites in one station, we may add another, so the termites consume the bait faster. All the stations are scanned and bar-coded, so we don't miss one during our inspection. This will also provide valuable information about when the station was inspected and what was found. Remember, it's essential to keep the stations in the ground to protect your home. Even though one colony is eliminated, several others can take their place and pose a threat to your home. Call our local, family-owned company today for the best results in termite treatment, and keep your property standing against these nasty invaders!

 

Why call Hoffman's Exterminating for termite baiting? 

  • It's the Wave of the future – Termite baits are the new Wave of Termite protection. They have been in the testing stages for many years producing outstanding results. Hoffman's Exterminating has done their homework to select the best bait system on the market today: the Sentricon ® Termite Colony Elimination System.

  • The Sentricon® Termite Colony Elimination System can be moved into areas conducive to termite conditions, such as moisture-prone areas, mulch areas, stumps, and firewood piles. This eliminates the need to inject gallons of termiticide into the soil around your home. It's an eco-friendly solution – Termite bait never leaves the bait station except when consumed by the termite.

  • It's a non-intrusive solution – The active ingredient is present in each Sentricon® station for termite consumption and elimination. This active ingredient is introduced through bait stations installed around the structure of your home. It is unnecessary to drill concrete in porches, block walls, patios, and garage floors.

  • The Serntricon® Termite Colony Elimination System is inspected yearly and consumed bait or bait that is not appealing to the termite is replaced. It works 24/7/365 – Unlike most liquid termite treatments, termite bait is permanently active. After a time, liquid therapies can deteriorate and leave your home susceptible to termite invasion.

  • The Sertricon® Termite Colony Elimination System does exactly what the name says—it eliminates the colony. It can eradicate entire colonies – Termites forage continuously searching for new food sources. If a new colony fills the void of the eliminated colony, the baiting system is in place to take on the next one. As long as the colony exists, the termites will be searching for the wood in and around your home.

More About Our Bed Bug Solutions

2.png

Because bed bugs like to hide in cracks and crevices, they can effectively avoid coming into contact with traditional pest control products, which makes treating an infestation very difficult. To ensure your bed bug infestation is taken care of once and for all, Hoffman's Exterminating Co. offers heat treatments. During the heat treatment, your home is often between 135-145 degrees Fahrenheit for 6-8 hours. Bed bugs cannot survive high temperatures, so our team utilizes specially designed equipment to heat your home and kill any existing bed bugs inside to effectively treat bed bug invasions.

Some of the key benefits of heat treatments include:

  • They kill insecticide-resistant bed-bugs

  • They are one of the quickest ways to get rid of bed bugs

  • They kill all forms of bed bugs, including eggs

  • They do not involve chemicals

  • They only require a single treatment

There has never been a severe bed bug infestation for our highly trained service professionals. Using state-of-the-art tools and technology, you can count on us to eliminate your infestation and protect your property against bed bugs.

When to Hire a Bed Bug Exterminator

Bed bugs are essentially vampire bugs—they feed on blood and will continue to drain a host as long as that host remains available. They can thrive anywhere there is an available food source, and despite their name, they may take up residence anywhere there is fabric. This may include mattresses, couches, curtains, and even carpeting. Bed bugs also prefer temperatures in the 70-80 degree range and can be killed by extreme heat or cold.

 

Extreme temperatures aside, however, the best way to get rid of bed bugs is to hire a professional. Hoffman's Exterminating offers bed bug treatment that can help your home or business return to normal as soon as possible. Our services are kid and pet-friendly because nothing is more important to us than safety. In addition to spraying and other extermination methods, we also try to find solutions to ensure your bed bug infestation does not reoccur in the future. And with 100% satisfaction guaranteed, there's no reason not to call Hoffman's as soon as you detect bed bugs on your property.

 

Top signs that you are dealing with a bed bug problem include: 

  • Clumps of itchy red bumps on your body

  • Spots of blood on your sheets/pillows

  • Molted bed bug skins and shells (may range from reddish-brown to whitish-gold in color)

  • Bed bug fecal matter (will look like small black or rust-colored spots)

  • An unpleasant, moldy sweet smell

More About Our Ant Solutions

hoffman vertical bugs revised .png

A member of the Hymenoptera family of insects, including bees and wasps, ants are fascinating creatures, even in the already remarkable insect world. Ants swarm once a year, with young queens flying away to set up new colonies while workers follow. A single colony holds up to half a million ants, all functioning within that hive mindset of serving their Queen. Speaking of the Queen, she can live up to 15 years, while the average ant can survive for up to seven years; again, this is an impressive amount of time in the insect world. In terms of climate preferences, ants love the heat. They thrive in warm environments, so in states where temperatures are pretty varied depending on the season, you are more likely to see them during the summer. However, they are not strictly seasonal pests. Another interesting thing about ants is that a colony will work to regulate temperatures, regardless of the season.

But fun facts aside, we understand that "interesting," "remarkable," and "fascinating" probably aren't words that come to mind when you think about this pest. Instead, you are more likely to go to terms like "nuisance," "frustrating," and "pain in the you-know-what." While ants are known for loving sweet things, with one North American subset even being called the "sugar ant," they will happily congregate in any area where they can find food. Therefore, the best way to avoid an ant invasion is to keep your home or business clean and avoid leaving any food out. However, if you are already amid an ant infestation, you can count on our ant control pros at Hoffman's to get rid of them. We offer a variety of methods for dealing with these resilient little bugs. Our techniques are safe for pets and children, so you never have to worry about toxic chemicals hurting anyone on your property. We provide customized solutions based on your commercial or residential space's needs. At Hoffman's, our mission is to be the company you can trust to not only put a stop to your ant problem but to prevent it from reoccurring in the future.

 

Call Hoffman's today for ant control if you have noticed: 

  • Pathways: Certain types of ants lay down lines of pheromones to create a trail to a food source for other ants in their colony to follow. If you see these pathways leading in and out of your business/house, there's a good sign you are about to face or are already amid an ant infestation.

  • Nests: Contrary to popular belief, not all ants live in anthills. However, if you are dealing with an ant problem, there is a good chance that you will spot a pile of soil or twigs near your property. Ants love to nest in quiet, dark places, so you will likely see these piles in unsuspecting cracks or corners.

  • Dirt: An ant nest is an organized mound with a hole on the top. However, random piles of dirt can also signify that you've got an ant infestation on your hands.

Call Hoffman's Exterminating—We'll Make Ants Scant on Your Property.

Ants are a pest; there are no two ways about it. You can try to get rid of them on your own and risk an infestation returning to your property, or you can call Hoffman's and let us help you eliminate your ant problem for good. Our reputation within this community speaks for itself. Ask any of our satisfied residential and commercial clients, and they'll tell you that you can't go wrong when you go with Hoffman's. With specials to suit any budget, we promise to ensure that your services are as affordable.

Pest Control for Bees, Wasps & Hornets

Control Bees, Wasps & Hornets on Your Property

Bees are an essential part of our ecosystem. They provide necessary pollination for our environment, helping plants grow, breed, and produce food. However, bees, wasps, and hornets can also be a significant safety threat to any property. Just one sting from one of these insects can cause an allergic reaction dangerous enough to send a person to the hospital and even be fatal—and that's saying nothing of a scenario where a person receives multiple stings. And the most dangerous part of all? Many people who are allergic to these insects do not even know they are allergic until they get stung, meaning there's no way to prepare for the worst.

Luckily, Hoffman's Exterminating is here to provide bee, wasp, and hornet control you can trust. Our experts have 30 years of experience, so you know we have what it takes to get the job done right the first time. Our reputation is stellar, and our technicians are known for delivering quality service with personalized care. We guarantee 100% satisfaction to every customer. There's no reason not to give our pest pros a call with treatment and extermination options that are safe for children, pets, and everyone else.

 

What can you do about them? In short, you can call Hoffman's Exterminating. These stinging insects come in various shapes and sizes, with some varieties being more aggressive than others. Seeing one or two bees around your property is no big deal and not a reason to freak out. However, if you constantly see bees, wasps, or hornets or have spotted a nest, you should contact a pest control technician ASAP. This advice holds particularly true if you have children, pets, older adults, or immunocompromised individuals living with you. Remember, these insects do not set out to harm, but they WILL defend their territory if they feel threatened.

At Hoffman's Exterminating, we provide pest control services for: 

  • Honey Bees

  • Carpenter Bees

  • The Common Eastern Bumblebee

  • Paper Wasps

  • Yellowjackets

  • And More

At Hoffman's, we have the training tools and technology to remove bees, wasp, and hornet nests with minimal disruption to your property. Our spraying methods are safe and effective, and we always strive to get the job done ASAP. Plus, we may be able to help you find ways to reduce the presence of stinging insects around your home or business moving forward.

 

More About Our Flea, Tick & Mosquito Solutions

11.png
12.png
hoffman vertical bugs revised .png

Fleas, ticks, and mosquitoes are among the most frustrating pests, generally rearing their heads in the summer months and looking for a food source while warm out. Unfortunately, due to global warming and other factors, they are increasingly less seasonal and may even pose a threat year-round in some parts of the country. These critters can also carry dangerous diseases, so you should never hesitate to contact an experienced pest control technician if you spot mosquitoes, fleas, and ticks around your property.

What to Know About Ticks, Fleas & Mosquitoes: 

 

  • Ticks: Ticks feed on human blood, though they will attach themselves to virtually any host they can find. It isn’t uncommon to discover ticks on dogs, and occasionally you may find them on cats. They transmit Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, Ehrlichia, and Anaplasma. They tend to populate at higher elevations, in wooded, grassy areas, where they can easily take cover while looking for a host. However, they can be found in urban areas, too, hiding in bricks and wooden crevices, making it possible to experience tick bites in a city. Tick infestations can be challenging to get rid of, so call our professionals at Hoffman’s Exterminating ASAP if a tick has bitten you.

  • Fleas: Fleas do bite humans, though these parasites are best known in residential communities for attacking pets. They can jump from host to host up to 150 times their height and will attach themselves to any warm-blooded mammal insight. Fleas thrive in dark, moist, humid environments and can live up to one year in ideal conditions. These pests can also distribute illnesses such as typhus and plague and are challenging to get rid of because you have to wipe out eggs, larvae, and pupa to get the job done—not just fully grown adults. You should never wait to deal with a flea infestation for your safety and pets.

  • Mosquitoes: Many people have had a summer afternoon or evening ruined by mosquito bites. Among the pathogens that mosquitoes can transmit are the Zika virus, West Nile virus, Chikungunya virus, dengue, and malaria. There are roughly 176 species of mosquitoes currently active in the United States, with 63 active species in New Jersey alone. Although they can live in almost any environment, they prefer moist areas with high vegetation. And while there are sprays and other home remedies to keep mosquitoes away, it can be hard to stop an infestation without a professional—which is why Hoffman’s is always here for you.

More About Our Spotted Lanternfly Solutions

hoffman vertical bugs revised (1).png

Many people have never even heard of the spotted lanternfly. However, if you are familiar with these insects, you already know they are a problem. Native to Northern China, Vietnam, and Tibet, this invasive species has since made its way to the United States and Japan. While still considered an emerging pest, spotted lanternflies are increasingly common on the east coast in states like New Jersey and Pennsylvania. While not dangerous per se, spotted lanternflies are highly destructive and can contribute to reduced yields on fruit-bearing trees and plants. They are a fascinating species in many ways and very interesting to look at, but make no mistake—spotted lanternflies are not part of our ecosystem and should be exterminated promptly whenever possible.

Fortunately, Hoffman's Exterminating proudly provides spotted lanternfly control. When we found out about the ensuing threat of this pest, we quickly jumped into action, finding the ideal materials and methods to get rid of them promptly and efficiently. 

 

How Do You Get Rid of Spotted Lanternflies?

At Hoffman's Exterminating, our goal is to assess the specific needs of your property and decide what works the best situation. There are two main methods for dealing with a spotted lanternfly infestation: soil injection and spraying. We may recommend either service or a combination of the two depending on the severity of the problem. Regardless of your option, our work will always focus on safety to protect pets, children, and everyone else on your commercial or residential property.

Which type of spotted lanternfly control is right for me:?

  • Soil Injection: Soil injection is the process of inserting insecticide into a tree or shrub that the pest in question – in this case, spotted lanternflies – has taken over. Our technicians will inject the insecticide through the affected tree/plant's roots, letting the material move up through the living parts and into the canopy, thus disincentivizing the pest to use the tree or plant as a food/shelter source. 

 

  • Spraying: Our spraying process for spotted lanternflies is pretty simple to what we would use to deal with a range of pests. The one thing to note is that rather than spraying any part of a structure with insecticide, we will instead be spraying the exterior of the infected tree. For this reason, it may be less effective than injecting the soil directly. However, insecticide spraying and injection are often the best courses of action for getting rid of spotted lanternflies.
