Lewes Pest Control Services
Lewes, Delaware was founded in 1631 and is commonly referred to as "The First Town in The First State." Lewes was the first settlement in Delaware, and the Dutch colony that settled it named it Zwaanendael (Swan Valley). Shortly after that, a group of Mennonites were given a grant of land at the Hoernkills (the area around Cape Henlopen, near the current town of Lewes) by the city of Amsterdam in 1662.
When William Penn arrived in the New World in 1682, he renamed the settlement to Lewes and it became the county seat until 1791, when it was moved to a more central location, which we know now as Georgetown.

Flea Control Services for your home
There are more than 2,000 species of fleas, the most common of which is the cat flea. It feeds on cats, dogs, humans and other mammals. An interesting fact about the cat flea is that unlike other fleas, the cat flea can stay on its host and can consume up to 20 blood meals per day. The cat flea also has the potential of carrying many different diseases.
After a flea bites a human, a small red dot with a single puncture point develops. The flea usually bites and feeds off its victims around the ankle areas. There is a difference to keep in mind with ant and spider bites: they leave two puncture marks, mosquito and bee bites normally result in swelling around the bite area.
A sure fire way to tell if your homes is infested with fleas is to figure out where the fleas are concentrated and place a white piece of paper on the floor. Fleas are drawn to the color white, so they should collect on the paper.
Once you've confirmed and identified the infestation of fleas in your home, it's time to call in the flea control experts! Activ Pest specializes in natural flea control and can have your flea infestation eliminated in no time!

BAT Removal and Trapping in Lewes, DE

Buildings with bat colonies roosting within the confines of the structure pose significant health risks to the occupants inside. Bats can transmit rabies to humans through bites, bat bugs can be present feeding on the bats, and the bat droppings can harbor the endemic fungal infection Histoplasmosis. Though the incidence of these occurring is low the risk is still present.
Therefore, when Activ Wildlife Management Professionals propose services to control bats it is with a complete understanding of what is required to perform the services correctly, completely and safely.

Lewes, DE Mole Treatment
As those who have experienced moles first-hand know, these pests cause havoc with their burrowing. In our region, moles are referred to as the eastern mole - or common mole - and feed largely on earthworms and grubs but also like to feed on beetles, spiders, centipedes, insect larvae, insect pupae, and vegetable matter.
The species prefers well-drained, loose or sandy soil, and avoids heavy clay, stony or gravelly soils, and very dry or very wet soils. It frequents pastures, open fields, meadows, and thin woods and is active throughout the year.
Moles cannot see and create elaborate underground tunnels called runways which run at shallow and deep levels. The subsurface runways are where mounds and ridges show above ground. They may be found active at any hour of the day but generally are more active by day than by night in response to the movement of earthworms in and out of the soil.
Moles do damage by their burrowing activities, especially on the greens of golf courses, in lawns, and in situations where accelerated soil erosion may result. Also, they may destroy row crops by burrowing along a row and killing the plants.
If you're having problems with moles, give us a call today! Activ Pest Solutions is your local mole pest control expert.

Delaware Rodent Control Services
As the winter months approach, mice - in particular the Deer Mouse and the White Footed Mouse - are invading residential structures. They often seek refuge in garages, attics, crawlspaces and sheds, leaving traces of fecal matter on your countertops, in your cabinets, on dishes, pots and pans.
Even scarier are the things that are not visible - traces of saliva and urine that contaminates your food and living space. Hantavirus has recently caught notoriety in the media with reports of seven infected people in California. Three of those people infected with Hantavirus were fatalities.
The Center of Disease Control also has reported a case of Hantivirus in Pennsylvania and one in West Virginia. The Deer Mouse and the White Footed Mouse are known carries of Hantavirus.

Spider and Spider Mite Control
Activ Pest Solutions focuses on eliminating spiders from your residence as part of our regular service. In fact, we are one of the few companies that also routinely remove accessible webs during the treatment process. Some may find this surprising but many times we are asked by homeowners to try to avoid treating any spiders during their services. This is because they actually consume a large amount of other insects and we are happy to accommodate such requests.
Spiders are predatory creatures, feeding on other insects. Our inspections focus on additional pest control issues, that you may be unaware of, yet may directly contribute to your spider problem. Our clients often complain of spiders setting up shop around front doors and porches.
Many times this can be attributed to light sources in the evening attracting flying insects. This in turn attracts the spiders like a buffet. Customers who live in marsh land areas will often continue to experience this throughout much of the year. Routine pest management can suppress these types of ongoing issues.
Mites are another common pest in landscapes and gardens that feed on many fruit trees, veggies and other plants. Although related to insects, mites are not insects but rather are members of the arachnid class along with spiders and ticks. Spider mites are the most common mite pests in the garden and on the farm. Call us today and inquire about our spider pest control services.
Brown Marmorated Stink Bug Treatment
The brown marmorated stink bug (BMSB) is an opportunistic over wintering house invader. When threatened, the BMSB emits a foul and unpleasant odor.
Starting in late August, BMSBs begin their search for an over wintering harborage site. Home owners are completely unaware that their home is being occupied by these tenacious pests until the cold weather sets in and the BMSBs start to make their appearance in the living areas of your home. Home owners battling this pest have described the invasion as maddening or overwhelming.
BMSB’s are difficult to control since they are resistance to most pesticides. At Activ Pest, we have nailed down a few very successful solutions that will extinguish this pest. Timing of preventative treatments is crucial. If you would like your home to be stink bug free, give us a call at 302-645-1502.

This includes both existing homes as well as new construction. Once the home is properly inspected and found to be termite free, Activ Pest Solutions can perform a minimally invasive Perimeter treatment on your structure and provide you with the same reinfestation warranty a homeowner receives after a full treatment.

Ticks must feed on the blood of an animal in order to grow and reproduce. Ticks don’t fly or jump. Rather, a tick climbs to the ends of blades of grass or weeds and waits quietly with its front legs extended until it can grab onto a passing host.
Ticks spread diseases to people, pets and other animals. Germs that may be present in their saliva are transmitted as they feed on the person or animal. These germs include bacteria and viruses that cause such serious diseases as Lyme Disease, Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever and Human ehrlichiosis.
Ticks are most common in the woods or overgrown places and where the ground is covered with leaf litter, thick weeds or high grass. Ticks may also be found on well-mowed lawns, or even inside your home.
