Bed Bugs Take Out New York Trains

Bed Bugs Take Out New York Trains

Three trains on the New York City N line have been taken out of service this week due to bedbugs. Discovered in the seat cushions of the cabs, which are used primarily by conductors and motormen, the bugs are currently being questioned by officials for fare evasion. For the rest of the passengers, they have been forced to find other means of travel, and have all been diagnosed with a case of the heebie-jeebies since Tuesday’s announcement.

In all seriousness, the situation adds concern to the mounting hysteria around New York’s bedbug situation, and pest control NYC. Metropolitan Transportation Authority spokesman Adam Lisberg is quoted in the New York Daily news saying “When we found them, we exterminated them.” Comforting to hear the powers that be are doing something about it, but what can the good people of New York City do to keep themselves and their families safe?

First of all, you should know that bedbugs are relatively harmless, as far as pests go. That said, if they get into your home, getting rid of them can be difficult. And they are a nuisance. Bedbugs are small bugs, visible to the naked eye, but definitely at the squinty-eyed end of the visible spectrum. Adults who have fed tend to be more visible as they fill up with blood and become red in color.

The way most people discover they have bedbugs is by finding little red bite-marks on their body. Bedbugs are very stealthy, and can take their requisite blood-meal without disturbing you, usually while you are sleeping. While most people show little reddish dots on their skin from bites, people react in different ways. Some have no reaction at all. Others can swell considerably. In any case, the bites are harmless. Bedbugs have not been reported to carry disease.

The other way you can find them is to search your mattresses and furniture cushions. They like warmth, and will huddle together in corners, under places where furniture piping and seams create hiding places.

The third place you may find bedbugs or evidence of this pest is around baseboards. As with your mattress or furniture, you may find actual bugs, but you may also find brown spots, droppings, or even eggs. You may even find dead bugs in any of the places listed so far. All of these count as bedbug sightings.

So what can you do if you find they’ve invaded your home? First things first, don’t take these pest on yourself. While early detection is key, attempting to use pest control methods yourself could be harmful. Plus you may find the problem gets worse despite your efforts. Even for a seasoned exterminator it will need more than one sweep to rid your home of these little buggers. They didn’t make it through near-extermination twenty years ago, cross the ocean, and hike home with you on the N line just to be swept aside. Call a professional.

How to Achieve an “A” Grade: Rodent Control and Fly Prevention in NYC Restaurants

How to Achieve an "A" Grade: Rodent Control and Fly Prevention in NYC Restaurants

Our blog series focusing on site-specific applications for Integrated Pest Management for businesses has covered a range of topics from bed bug control for hotels, to rodent control, and most recently pest management strategies for food processing facilities. As we continue we will keep in line with the food safety theme in this installment covering pest control and New York commercial fly control, and specifically how to achieve an A Grade from the NYC Department of Health using IPM principles.

“A” Is The ONLY Passing Grade In Restaurants

It’s been in the news lately, with high profile restaurants getting slammed with less than desirable Department of Health ratings in regards to cleanliness and food safety. No one wants to eat at a restaurant with a “B”, much less a “C” and there is no worse stigma for a restaurant than poor sanitation grade glaring in the front window. For any restaurant, high profile or not, the costs can be devastating in terms of reputation and public perception, and those losses may never be recouped. Obviously it is in the interest of every restaurant operator to maintain the highest standards when it comes to insect control, rodent control and fly prevention, as they are part of the main criteria for maintaining the “A” grade.

What Determines The Grade?

Every restaurant in New York City is subject to an unannounced inspection once a year. During these inspections restaurants are audited based on a scale of “critical” and “general” violations. A restaurant receiving more than 13 points on the scale will lose its “A” rating until it can prove it has made the proper corrections. Some of the most damaging critical violations are those involving the presence of pests because they denote an overall weakness in a restaurant’s ability to maintain basic sanitation, and are based on the visible numbers of pests, or evidence of pests. Among these critical violations are the evidence of rodents or live rodents present in facility’s food and/or non-food areas, live roaches present in facility’s food and/or non-food areas, and filth flies or food/refuse/sewage-associated (FRSA) flies in facility’s food and/or non-food areas. Non-critical violations in regards to pest management include the facility not being vermin proof or having harborage or conditions conducive to attracting vermin to the premises and/or allowing vermin to exist. Basically every instance of violation inspectors find will denote a point or more depending on the severity of the problem, for example the number of flies, rodent droppings, etc. The greater the number of flies for example, the more points lost. Needless to say, the presence of any pest in the restaurant can threaten the “A” grade.

Passing the Grade

According to NYC Health’s Guide for Food Service Operators, one of the main steps restaurants need to take in receiving an “A” includes contracting a licensed pest control professional. With this in mind, how does RJS work with its restaurant clients to maintain their “A”? RJS’s Integrated Pest Management strategies provide our clients with an edge since the multi-level approach we use covers everything from training restaurant staff, identifying and eliminating harborage and entry points, to ongoing monitoring programs. Along with this we recommend installing products like Xcluder door sweeps to insure roaches and rodents are unable to enter under doors for example. In NYC commercial fly control for restaurants is a major concern, especially in spring and summer when fly populations can increase to critical violation levels overnight. RJS takes preventative measure like installing BASF Vector fly lights in our client’s properties to ensure fly populations are kept at a minimum. Caulking and sealing entry points, cracks, and harborage areas is also key to insuring our client’s restaurants remain as pest free as possible. In addition to the physical prevention we use staff training to help workers identify and resolve problems such as uncovered garbage, or food, and to identify and monitor the presence of pests. Following RJS’s comprehensive restaurant pest control programs will give our clients the best chance at getting the “A” Grade because we understand the criteria and how to execute a plan that will insure that you are in compliance.

Looking forward to our next blog installment were we will cover how RJS views the future of pest control in a post entitled: “How Technology is Revolutionizing The Pest Control Industry”.

The New York City letter-grade restaurant system has been implemented in 2010 by the Department of Health.

For any restaurant, high profile or not, the costs of poor inspection results can be devastating in terms of reputation and public perception, and those losses may never be recouped. Obviously it is in the interest of every restaurant operator to maintain the highest standards when it comes to insect control, rodent control and fly prevention, as they are part of the main criteria for receiving the “A” grade.

How To Prevent A Rat Infestation On Your Block in Brooklyn?

How To Prevent A Rat Infestation On Your Block in Brooklyn?

Despite everything the city and their building management have tried, a serious rat problem isn’t going away from Brooklyn. In addition to destroying property and equipment, mice and rats can contaminate food and spread disease through their urine and droppings.

Rat control is everyone’s responsibility. Without continuing sanitation and good housekeeping practices on your block, the rats will keep reoccurring, even after the best rat extermination programs. That’s why it’s important that everyone in your community works together to prevent rat infestation; residents, local business owners, schools and local stores. Here are some tips from RJS Pest Management, Brooklyn Exterminator, on how to become your neighborhood’s leader and tackle the rat problem, hands on, for the best long-term results.

1. Organize Your Block and Hold a Meeting on The Rat Infestation Problem

Go from door to door and get your neighbors signed up and committed to combating the infestation and attend a meeting on the problem. Be prepared for a large turn up. If you have a rat problem, all your neighbors have it too!

2. Appoint a Rat Inspector on Your Block. Send Them to the “Rat Academy” Meeting.

The city hosts half-day trainings that cover all the basics and best practices of pest management — and they’re free. Hosted by the Department of Health, the trainings are geared towards teaching homeowners, building staff and residents how to combat rat infestations using a variety of strategies. If you and your neighbors want to attend, just gather a minimum of 20 people and ask the DOH to host one for you. Or, you can join an academy that’s already scheduled. Those interested in a deeper dive into rat management can attend a free three-day course, complete with homework and field trips, also free and sponsored by the city.

To sign up for either option, send an email to ratportal@health.nyc.gov or call 311.

3. Distribute Educational Materials About Rat Extermination

Education is an important first step. If there are no takers for the ‘Rat Academy’, you can contact the Department of Health and ask them to send you some free leaflets that cover best practices for rat extermination. Distribute them around your block and educate your neighburs about the best rodent prevention practives.

  • Rats can survive on food grease alone, so clean up grease with a bleach-and-water solution.
  • Rats can get inside a space the size of a quarter, so sealing up holes outside the property is essential.
  • Ivy and overgrown brush create ideal conditions for rats to dig under them and create burrows in the ground.

For more information or to get the official NY city rat extermination leaflet, go here.

4. Make Sure Your Block Uses The Right Trash Cans

Make sure your building is using rodent proof metal trash cans with tight-fitting covers or at least put garbage out closer to the actual pickup time. Another good way to make sure your trash is not attracting any rats is to remove the organic waste — such as uneaten meat, stale bread, tea bags, banana peels or any leftover food.

Within the past 12 months, the Department of Sanitation launched a pilot program for organics collection in The Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens and Staten Island. In addition, public schools and nonprofit organizations in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Staten Island and Queens have participated. Participants separate organic waste and put it in sealed plastic bins for separate pickup by the Department of Sanitation. Check whether your block is within a pilot area here .

5. Finding a good NYC Exterminator

Call a pest management professional as soon as possible. The quicker you act, the smaller the problem and the easier the treatment. A licensed professional must do baiting to rid rats.

RJS Pest Management, a family run, commercial rodent control company that serves all five boroughs including Brooklyn, says, “You want a reputable company, somebody that has credentials. Look for the Quality Pro designation–only about 350-400 companies across U.S. have it and it requires everything from training to background checks, to physicals for workers.

You also want a company with licensed workers that is registered with the state and you can check on the company you want to hire (or that your landlord has hired) by calling (718) 482-4994.

Pest Management Strategies for Food Processing

Pest Management Strategies for Food Processing

As we continue on with our blog series on RJS’s Integrated Pest Management approach to pest control, we will begin to look more at site-specific applications as they pertain to businesses that we specialize in protecting. We have touched on this with regard to hotels and bed bugs in out last post, as well in previous posts mentioning general practices using specific business sites as examples. In this installment we will cover RJS’s strategies and practices for IPM pest control for commercial food properties.

Everyone Eats!

Let’s face it; one of the most important things in all of our lives is food and food safety. Making sure that the food you eat is clean and safe is at the top of anyone’s list of life’s necessities. That’s why it is so important to have safeguards in place at all levels of the supply chain to ensure public safety. One oversight or incident can mean disaster for a food producer as well as for the public at large. RJS works diligently with commercial food facilities as well as third party inspection and certification services to insure the utmost in care is taken when creating a program for food processing pest control. So what are the steps for implementing an integrated pest management program in commercial food facilities?

1. Compliance with 3rd Party Inspection Standards

There are several local, national, and international inspection, auditing and certification authorities that serve the food service and processing industries. RJS finds such third party programs essential to any program we put in place. By working with and following guidelines put in place by respected authorities such as AIB International, RJS can insure that our clients are getting the most comprehensive, cutting edge industry standard audits and assessments to aid us in our efforts in food safety pest control.

2. Choosing the right pest control …

RJS Implements its integrated pest management programs in commercial food facilities by following the standards and practices recommended by third party authorities and works them into the training and certifications required for our on-site technicians. In addition RJS’s techs are trained and certified to the highest standards such as QualityPro Food Protection, as well as New York State’s required 7A and 7F licenses for structural and rodent control, and food processing respectively. By taking such a comprehensive approach to training, education, and certification we can insure that our clients and community will have the safest food possible and have the ability to choose the right course of action for their facilities.

3. Implementation

Clients such as, Aladdin Bakers, Seviroli Foods and Morrison’s Pastry rely on us to maintain their facilities at the highest standards possible. We use our qualifications to create effective systems of documentation, reporting and analysis to assess their properties and create very effective programs for safeguarding them in choosing the right pest control strategies. RJS works closely with our client’s staff to insure they are aware of and understand all of our procedures and techniques so that every detail is covered. Concepts such as HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points) are used as preventative tools in this regard. HAACP pest control programs use scientific models to analyze points of vulnerability in the chain of processing, and allow us to define and prevent issues before they become problems. Working closely with the staff who maintains and operates food-processing systems is essential to this process. We can then effectively pinpoint problem areas and provide the safest and most effective solutions to maintaining a pest free environment. These and other controls and methods are what insure the food our clients produce will be safe.

Looking forward to upcoming blog installments we will cover how RJS deals with specific pests common to New York area businesses using IPM methods. Next post’s topic: Pest Control & Fly Prevention for NYC Restaurants: How to Achieve an “A” Grade

Fumigators use gases, called fumigants, to treat specific kinds of pests or large-scale infestations. Fumigators seal infested buildings before using hoses to fill the structure with fumigants. Warning signs are posted to keep people from going into fumigated buildings, and fumigators monitor buildings closely to detect and stop leaks.

Here is more from Al Valez about his path to successful career as a Pest Control NYC Technician:

An evening of May of 1994, as I got home from my job and walked out of my 1984 Nissan Sentra towards my apartment, this gentleman (Joe Tamayo) who was my neighbor at the time, called me. He ask me a question that I’ll never forget: “Would you like to start a career? Would you like to work on a market of opportunities?” I’ll never forget the way he asked me, if I wanted to come work for him at the Western Mountainside Office that evening.

Several years later (1997), Joe moved up in the company and a couple of years after I got promoted as a Service Supervisor. Then in 2006 i moved south to Florida where I lived for 7 years and worked under Orkin Commercial services in Orlando.

Because of Joe I got the opportunity to meet another great person. A very smart man with a vision, a man of passion, great work ethics, integrity and above all a man with a great heart. When I met Rob I knew I made the right choice to come work for RJS Pest Management.”

Commercial Rodent Control Methods

Commercial Rodent Control Methods

Integrated Pest Management Approach To Commercial Rodent Control

​This blog installment covers the ever-present rodent population of New York City, specifically the Norway Rat and the House Mouse, and how RJS Pest Management uses IPM practices to prevent, monitor and eliminate them in commercial settings.

Rats!… and Mice

​Rats and mice might be the most maligned pests we deal with at RJS. While some people might consider them as pets rather than pests, most business owners will agree that a rodent sighting on your property is anything but cute. Most customers associate rodents with un-cleanliness, disease, garbage, sewage, and an overall sense of unease.

When it comes to many of our clients in New York, rodent control tops the list of priorities in regards to pest management. Because rodent populations are so mobile and can spread so rapidly, it is very important to have an effective strategy in place to combat these unwanted intruders. This is where RJS’s Integrated Pest Management practices prove to be invaluable to clients needing an effective and comprehensive approach to commercial pest control.

Consulting with Experts

RJS’s multi-tiered IPM approach to rodent control starts with consulting top experts in the field.

Our relationships with leading urban rodentologists like Bobby M. Corrigan Ph. D., who has been featured in the New York Times, and is the author of Rodent Control: A Practical Guide For Pest Management professionals, give us insights into how rodents propagate, feed, migrate, and nest.

By starting with solid science we are able to then create effective strategies to manage rodent populations in business settings. Commercial rodent control is a very complex problem and being prepared with the best knowledge available gives us a distinct advantage.

Specific Strategies

RJS’s informed, scientific approach to Integrated Pest Management for rodents takes the form of specific strategies each implementing proven methods for rodent control. These are broken up into three areas:

1. Prevention

Prevention methods implemented by RJS in it’s rodent control efforts include comprehensive survey, analysis, and tracking of commercial properties to indentify problem areas that allow for the entry, harborage, and feeding of rodents.

These efforts are of particular help in areas such as hotel, restaurant and food processing industries where prevention is key to controlling rodents before they become established on site. Food processing pest control prevention efforts for example, target and treat entry points by caulking and sealing seams and holes on walls that have been recorded during site surveys.

Performing site surveys also helps by identify issues around a site’s perimeter where rodents may gain access to food and shelter provided by ground cover, trash, and equipment, for example: Maintaining a clean and sealed perimeter is essential to prevention of rodents. In an effort to maintain the highest standards in on site surveys RJS partners with third party auditing specialists like AIB International. These auditing services include detailed procedures outlining the requirements to reduce the potential for product contamination from pests as well as the use of materials and procedures designed to control pest activity.

2. Procedures

Through the implementation of logbooks, action plans, and the education of staff on proper reporting mechanisms and sanitation practices, IPM practices help outline key procedural policies that must be followed in order to effectively control rodents on commercial sites.

Logbooks are essential to tracking the presence of rodents, as well as monitoring the progress and locations of treatments. Action plans then can be effectively targeted to specific areas needing attention on going. These action plans are then carried out through staff education, treatments, and monitoring.

3. Proactive Monitoring & Treatments

Treatment and monitoring of rodent activity is carried out by the use of such devices as single catch traps, multiple catch traps, glue boards, wax bait and mechanical traps in conjunction with logbook recording. Rodent activity can be calculated based on trap maintenance and monitoring using the proper traps for specific purposes.

Single catch traps and multiple catch traps may be used along building perimeters or in areas of high rodent activity. Multiple catch traps are particularly effective near entry doors. Personal safety is also an important consideration in this process.

Bait stations for example, will be placed in areas where they are not visible or accessible to the public and will be anchored and tamper-resistant. In keeping with IPM practices in our pest control treatment efforts, RJS uses the highest quality industry standard traps and baits such as Catchmaster baits and glueboards in order to trap and monitor rodents in the most efficient and effective ways ensuring that our clients receive the best treatments and action plans possible.

The IPM Advantage

Specific strategies and procedures coupled with expert scientific consultation and RJS’s continued commitment to the Integrated Pest Management philosophy ensure that we provide our customers with the greatest advantage possible in our efforts to control rodents on site.
