The word “liability” can strike fear in the most seasoned of restaurant or business owners. Sometimes invasive species can bring liability to your door. Normally minor painful stings from bees or wasps can turn deadly when a person is allergic to them. Are stinging insects becoming a nuisance in your establishment? Hiring the Stern Environmental NJ pest control team makes the best sense!

It’s not news rats are taking over NYC. But what may surprise you is that the city is not alone. In many cities, rodents have gotten so rotund due to easy access to food they could use a spring diet. It’s no tall tale, some have packed on so many pounds they’re getting stuck in inconvenient places. And the NJ pest control pros at Stern Environmental just have to share this latest, highly-amusing, rat-related news release with you.
Fat Rat Stuck in Sewer Grate Rescued by Firefighters
It’s okay. We know you want to read it again, and you’re relieved even rodents have a problem with holiday fluff. The rat in question, a stout female, had apparently packed on quite a bit of winter flab. She ended up stuck in a manhole grate in the city of Bensheim, Germany.
Goodbye Skinny Jeans
A large-scale rat rescue operation ensued, involving a rescue attempt by a large-scale, professional animal rescue operation. When this failed, an entire team of firefighters attempted to eject the plump pest. Stuck at the hip, she could not be moved forward or backward. Seven firefighters had to pop the manhole cover to finally lasso her out and let her loose back into Bensheim’s sewer system.

Commonly confused for bees, hornets, and paper wasps, yellow jackets are easily distinguishable from other pests with careful observation. The NJ pest control experts at Stern want to help you identify these aggressive pests, which are capable of repeatedly stinging.
Is it a Wasp or a Bee?
Most yellow jackets are ½-inch long, though queens can be larger. Some species are black and yellow, some yellow and blackish-red, and a few black and white. Unlike bees, they do NOT have fuzzy bodies or hairy hind legs and do NOT carry pollen, however they’re important predators of other pest insects. They live in colonies and can be best identified by fast, side-to-side movement prior to landing. Female wasps can sting repeatedly with barbed, lance-like stingers, injecting venom that can cause an allergic reaction to susceptible individuals and those repeatedly stung.
Where are They Hiding?
Yellow jackets can build nests nearly anywhere: The ground, inside trees and bushes, stumps, and manmade structures (homes, cars). Nests are constructed from wood fibers chewed to a pulp. Colonies die annually, except overwintering queens bearing young, which hideout under leaves and bark, in stumps, and the ground. Each queen can expand a colony to 4,000-5,000 female workers and a nest of 10,000-15,000 cells of new males and queens.
