Is is termites or ants?

This is the time of year that termites swarm.  Unfortunately, ants also swarm in the spring and summer.  How can you tell the difference?  Ants have 3 parts to their bodies and are easily recognizable by their segmented bodies.  Termites have straight antennae out of the top of their head while ants have bent antennae out the side of their head.  Guardian can help with services for either instance.  Contact the office at 856-768-3330 to schedule a service.

 

Termites!

Did you know that termites are active all year long?  Termites swarm in the springtime.  The main purpose of the termite during the swarm is to find a mate and start a new colony of termites in a new location.  When a homeowner experiences a swarm, it is a visible sign they have termites.  But termites are active all year long, and leave behind evidence such as mud tubes to let their presence be known.  To find out if you could have termites, contact us at 856-768-3330 and we can do a Peace of Mind Inspection for $75.  This is a full inspection of your home to help you protect your home from termite infestation.  Guardian remains committed to protecting your Home, Health & Environment.

Animal Control is still an issue for several people.  Raccoons have invaded a customers attic, causing damage in the soffit and nesting in the attic insulation.  I have personally experienced issues with squirrels nesting under my solar panels. They came out and trapped for squirrels and removed the nesting materials from underneath the solar panels.  It is always fascinating to watch Mike working on the roof without fear. Since nesting under solar panels has become such an issue for many, Guardian is now offering quarterly solar panel checks for animal control.  This includes removing any nesting materials under your solar panels. Call the office at 856-768-3330 to schedule.

Animal Control

3/24/2020

 

Are you tired of rabbits and deer eating your plants?  We have deer around the office that keep eating the plants around our building.  The owner has been having an issue with rabbits eating his plants around his house.

 

Guardian has been using an all natural product called Yard Gard to help repel moles for the past 2 years for our customers.  Mike decided to try using that same product around the office and his home to see if it would help with the rabbits and deer eating the plants…..and he is thrilled with the results.

 

If you would like more information on the Yard Gard product, please call the office at 856-768-3330 and we will be happy to help.

Covid-19

With the outbreak of Covid-19, Guardian Termite & Pest Control has reinforced the following protocols:

1) All Guardian employees are instructed to report to their supervisor if/when sick. Employees that have potential coronavirus symptoms will be instructed to have no public contact and/or remain home.

2) The use of sanitizing wipes—mostly for hands, also for cell phones, etc. are to be used in office (as well as disinfectant spray & wipe of surfaces) and to be used by field technicians for hands, cell phones & tablets, steering wheel and other equipment.

3) The use of disposable gloves are used by field technicians. Gloves will be worn for contact with door rails and other surfaces. If and when bare hands make contact with surfaces, a) do not touch face, and b) use sanitizing wipes to clean hands ASAP.

4) We may be asking clients of indoor services whether anyone in their household (or recent visitor) was/is sick. When meeting clients we may avoid handshakes, which is otherwise normally good social protocol. If necessary, we will escalate protocol to execute paperwork and payments remotely.

5) Exterior only services are a good option to keep the bugs at bay while protecting your peace of mind. With the exterior service, we continue to maintain the barrier along the perimeter of your home with the intention of preventing bugs from coming inside the home. In the event that you need or want an interior service the above guidelines will remain in place.

We will continue to provide services for our customers with the same care and dedication as we have for over 23 years. Your safety will always be a priority at Guardian.

Animal Control

Raccoons and Squirrels can cause significant damage to your home. They can rip up roof shingles, chew their way into the soffit. They will try to nest in your attic, under solar panels, and in the soffit. Guardian Termite & Pest Control will do the job in a professional manner.

Groundhogs dig underground and can cause damage to concrete slabs by digging under them and weakening the foundation.

Call Guardian today to schedule your animal control service – 856-768-3330

Quarterly Squirrel Control/Solar Panels

2/4/2020

February has arrived with warm weather! The Groundhog did not see his shadow and there is an early spring predicted.

It is never too early to worry about animal control. I have been having a personal battle with squirrels around my house. They keep scaling the side of my house, running through the gutters and now are going in and out of my chimney. They have been building nests underneath my solar panels. Thankfully, Mike Pagano was out to trap the squirrels and helped remove the nest from under the solar panels.

Now that solar panels are becoming more and more popular, Guardian will be offering QUARTERLY ANIMAL CONTROL services to trap any squirrels under your solar panels and clean out/remove any nests. Call the office at 856-768-3330 for more info and pricing.
