Livingston, New Jersey is a charming community on the shores of the Passaic River and is home to some 30,000 residents who enjoy a vibrant arts scene, high-end shopping and dining, and a robust business sector.
It was established in 1699 by residents of Newark, who moved west and negotiated with the Lenni Lenape Tribe to establish an independent township. Naturally, the area had already been colonized, by dozens if not hundreds of insect species.
Although that fact probably wasn’t high on the settlers’ list of priorities, rodents, insects, and other pests nevertheless had a negative impact on their lives and continue to affect the lives of their descendants to this day.
How Pests Cause Problems
Insects and spiders can have a significant impact on the quality of life, whether your home is in Livingston or another part of the state. The region is home to a variety of species, including spiders, centipedes, termites, mosquitos, and bed bugs.
What’s more; several lesser-known insects, such as earwigs, silverfish, Indian meal moths, and the quaintly named confused flour beetle all call New Jersey home. Unfortunately, many of these creatures can cause severe damage to your family’s treasured possessions: for example, silverfish infest antique books and eat the proteins and starches in the paper and glue bindings.
Many homeowners discover they have a pest control problem when a child or pet suffers the brunt of these creatures’ natural protective mechanisms: bites, stings, and rashes. Others realize termites have invaded when they notice damaged wood and uncover the insects’ tell-tale, sawdust-like droppings. And of course, the presence of webs and egg sacs, nests, and droppings are all clear indications of a mouse, rat, or skunk problem.
In all situations, pests are a hazard to health and safety and can have a severe impact on structural integrity and property value. After all, there’s a reason we call them “pests.” They cause problems of all kinds, interfere with our enjoyment of life, and generally make, well, pests of themselves.
