White House Maintenance Orders Reveal Cockroaches, Ants and Mice Infestations

04 Dec 2017

Posted by John D. Stellberger

EHS Pest Rodent Expert

White House maintenance work orders reveal that the historic building's grounds are plagued with mice, cockroaches and ants.

NBC 4 Washington, which obtained the hundreds of work orders, reports that there have been a number of requests to deal with vermin in the White House, including mice in the situation room and the White House Navy mess food service area.

Other requests reported cockroach infestations in at least four parts of the White House, and a colony of ants living in chief of staff John Kelly's office.

The number of requests for building maintenance and redecorating was similar to past administrations, NBC reports.

Some of the requests were more mundane in nature, including a redecoration of national security adviser H.R. McMaster's office and a new toilet seat for the Oval Office bathroom. That last request was directed to be completed "after hours please."

Former General Services Administration (GSA) Inspector General Brian Miller said that maintaining the aging presidential residence is a massive undertaking.

“It’s an enormous job. GSA is assigned to manage that job,” Miller told NBC. “GSA hires contractors and subcontractors for the [maintenance] work. Then the agency must watch over the contractors."

“They are old buildings,” he added. “Any of us who have old houses know old houses need a lot of work.”

Mice and Garage Doors

Our native Mice (peromyscus) love seeds.

An unsecured bucket of Sunflower Chips is what every Deer Mouse dreams of.

EHS Pest Solution MA, RI

She might have been able to jump out, but the loose seeds prevented her from gaining traction for a freedom vault.

We protected this garage and it’s loose fitting door with an Xcluder brand rodent-proof overhead door sweep. It’s proper rodent defense. Now if the homeowner forgets to seal the bird seed bucket the buffet will remain for the much loved Northern Cardinals and not pesky mice!

For more information about rat-proofing, contact EHS Pest.

Pantry Pests - Weston, MA

Posted by John D. Stellberger

The term pantry pest are usually insects that infest stored products such as grains, beans, pasta, cornmeal, dried fruits, spices, other dry goods and even animal hides.

Indian Meal Moths are the most common insect we are asked to address for clients. Dermestid Beetles, Saw-toothed grain beetles, Cigarette Beetles, Red and Confused Flour Beetles, Rice Weevils are also common. Every insect has food preferences, some are shared.

Once the infesting insect(s) species is/are identified, you may be able to narrow your search for which product(s) may be the source of the problem.

Don’t forget to check the pet food, bird seed and fish food in the garage or other remote areas. This is quite often the root of the problem that has migrated into other areas of your home.

The picture shows a major grain beetle infestation in an old, unused tub of coy fish food that had migrated from the garage into the clients pantry.



If you want to get rid of those pantry pests safely, call EHS Pest.

Rats and Mice Love Gappy Doors! - Boston, MA

EHS Pest - Rat Proofing

Rats and Mice love gappy doors! A half inch or twelve millimeters can allow a rat inside and a quarter inch or six millimeters in large enough for a mouse! Smaller gaps are often enlarged to these sizes by rodent gnawing.

The door in this photograph leads into a dark alley with several open dumpsters less than fifteen feet away. It is extremely vulnerable and needs immediate repair to prevent Rat and House Mouse invasion.

Experience will guide us modify the foundation, then use a combination of leveling cement, threshold and rodent-proof door sweep to keep this property safe and prevent future infestations.

For more information on how to rodent-proof your properties, call EHS Pest.

Bedbugs in Hotels

Attending the #NEPMA #PestWorld convention became more interesting for our Leigh Fryxell. Armed with a flashlight and other inspection tools, she scoured her hotel room for #cimex and it wasn’t long until she made a discovery out in the open. It was dead and semi smooshed. The room had be cleaned by housekeeping so why it on a glass panel wasn’t clear.

The front desk staff wasn’t shocked or apologetic. They offered another room and a call to their PMP. Just another bedbug complaint? Business as usual.

If you have bedbug problems and you want to get rid of them safely, call EHS Pest.
