Pests are a fact of life, and most of us just deal with the occasional spider crawling across a wall at home. But over the past few months, I feel like I've seen more "spider crickets" in my house than ever before. It turns out I'm not the only one.
Just two weeks ago we told you about the early and intense invasion of ticks throughout the Jersey Shore. Well, not to be the bearer of bad news, but another nuisance pest is making a return to our area right now.
The holiday season is a time to entertain guests. But, sometimes we have to deal with uninvited guests. No, I'm not talking about in-laws, I'm talking about bugs and rodents.
When the weather turns colder, the invaders look for somewhere warm to take shelter. So, which pests are the most irritating in the Garden State?
If I had to pick a favorite time of year, it's definitely now - late spring and early summer. The temperatures are usually comfortable (ok, today is a bad example of that), and the days are nice and long. The only downside - bugs. Lots of them. Many people have their own strategies for dealing with outdoor pests.
