In New Jersey, it is state law to have a wood-destroying insect (WDI) report before you sell your home. But you don’t have to wait until you sell your home before you get one of these inspections. Here’s why it could be a good idea, and how it may help you save big bucks in the long run.
Just as you or I would seek the shelter of a warm house as temperatures start to dip, pests of all kinds do too. In particular, rodents begin their annual trek indoors when the mercury drops. Below are some helpful suggestions on keeping the mice out of your house.
Pest Prevention Tips for Winter
Winter is approaching and we are not the only ones to notice the drop in mercury. Pests of all kinds, from insects to snakes and rodents, are looking to settle in someplace nice for the coldest part of the year. Let’s make sure they don’t move into your home! Take some time to read through these prevention tips and think about areas in your home that you might want to consider working on before the snow starts to fly!
Why are Bees and Wasps Worse in the Fall?
There is something peaceful and soothing about watching a busy bee gather nectar in the heat of summer. Buzzing amongst the beautiful posies, bees and wasps complete a Kodachrome picture of the season. But as time creeps through fall and ever-nearer to the cold winds of winter, bees and wasps become a much more ominous part of that lovely picture of nature. Why are bees and wasps worse during the fall season? What makes them aggressive and dangerous especially at this time of year? We will break down some of the reasons and help you to have a fall as lovely as your summer, without the threat of bees and wasps.

Customer Reviews of Ace Walco Pest Control
Great customer service and follow-up
Technician was extremely knowledgeable
My tech name was John Torres very helpful tech very nice person i appreciate everything you done to help me with my problem i hope if i ever need you guys again you send John or someone as good as he was thanks again i appreciate your help.
Tony is an excellent pest control operator. He is always pleasant and upbeat when he comes to the library. He always tells us to let him know if we have any issues. We really like having him as our bug man
I have been a customer of ACE WALCO for many years. I use their spring treatment program which has been very successful in providing much needed protection to my home, since we are located in a very rural wooded section of Sussex County. I have always found the customer representatives to be very professional and attentive to my needs and concerns. Their technicians are very courteous and knowledgeable of their profession and attend to their duties in a very efficient manner.
Recently a friend called me on a late Friday afternoon. She was in a panic as she had found many bees in her house and was fearful that a family member might be stung. She told me that she called one company and they told her that they could not help her until Monday! This was not acceptable. I connected her with Kim at ACE WALCO who made sure this emergency situation got the highest priority. That afternoon, Kurt, in my opinion their top technician, despite having a very busy and hectic day, was at her home taking care of the situation. My friend was so thankful for ACE WALCO, that she will be using them from now on. Thank you ACE WALCO for a job well done!
After killing several bees in my family room for two days, it was apparent we had a problem that was now escalating by the minute. I called a company on a Friday morning and I was told they could not get to me for 72 hours. I began to think at the rate I was seeing and killing these bees, we would all be dead by then. I called a friend for advice whom immediately told me about a wonderful company that he had been using for 20 yrs. He was kind enough to give Ace Walco a call for me to see if his service man was available to help me. I then contacted the office and was greeted by a lovely girl named Kim who assured me all would be ok. She would be sending a gentleman named Kurt out to me within a few hours. Kurt came within two hours of the call! He was fabulous and quickly identified the bee as a yellow jacket. I then showed him to a closet where I heard a crackling noise. He went outside and immediately found their entry way. As we began to remove items from the closet shelves, we came across a six inch long crack.Kurt commented that was it! They were in! We witnessed yellow jackets emerging like the front line of an army! Well Kurt went into action with his spray. After drilling four holes into the wall and treating with poison, he taped them up and gave me further instructions to do after the treatment procedure. He then checked the basement foundation and the entire outer structure of my home. He was was very professional offering much information and advice. I will definitely call this company again to set up annual spraying, Thank you Ace Walko and Kurt for coming so quickly!
We have been dealing with Ace Walco over 40 years and have never been disappointed.
One call and they are there the same day. Fast, reliable, and pleasant service.
You will not be disappointed
Superior service and responsiveness!
I recently had set aside a weekend to clean out my garage. Upon beginning my work, I was stung moving a rolled up carpet, and was afraid there was a nest inside. I called multiple different exterminators on a Saturday morning, and only Ace Walco was able to help me that day.
Within an hour of my call, John was at my house, and confirmed there was a nest. He not only treated the nest, but he devised a way to get the carpet out of the garage, so I could continue my project.
I’m incredibly grateful for his quick and thorough assistance, which saved me from losing the whole weekend to get the chore done!!
For the past three years we have been using the services of Ace Walco to protect our home from rodents and all other unwanted pests. Our technician Tony does an incredible job of keeping our home pest free.
When we have had an occasional pest invade our home in between our scheduled 3 visits a year. One phone call to Ace Walco and Tony is at our home ftaking care of the issue and making us feel more comfortable.
We highly recommend Ace Walco and more than that we highly recommend Tony. He's the best.
I called yesterday as I notice that there was an insect issue in my apartment. Everyone at Ace Walco was so nice & professional. They had someone come out right away (the same day) for an estimate and was even able to schedule a treatment appointment for the next day (which was Friday of Memorial Day Weekend!!!) to take care of the problem. Gaye, James & Andre thank you so much - I never had an issue like this and appreciate your help, knowledge and assistance. I would recommend this company to anyone in need of an exterminator!
Tony is the consummate professional. Punctual, personable, and knowlegable. Would highly recommend.
On 4/19/18 your service technician, Walter Borda, serviced our termite baiting system. In all the years we have been with AceWalco this is the first time all 13 baiting stations were thoroughly checked. Walter took the time to inspect each station and made the necessary replacements to each one. Thank you Walter for your complete and courteous service check.
I found this company while doing a google search and I clicked to call them. Actually got a real person first go! I ended up speaking with John the owner and he walked me through the process. Now I'm pest free and ready for my Easter guests. Thanks John and Ace Walco for taking care of these pests I've been dealing with all winter.
Called the office and the secretary was very pleasant and professional. I received a free estimate the next day by Walter. He explained everything thoroughly and was very professional and pleasant. Would recommend this company to everyone who needs this type of service..
Found some mice in my home. Devon from Ace Walco came out to check out my problem. Devon is by far the most helpful and understanding person I have had the pleasure of meeting, as far as pest people. He had patience in listening to my concerns and explained every step that would be taken. Thanks Devon, wish there were more people like that out there.
We have been using Ace Walco for many years, and have experienced nothing but THE BEST SERVICE! I know that when I call Ace Walco and speak to ELizabeth, that everything will be taken care of quickly and properly.

This is a note of appreciation to John and Ace Walco for their super service for many years. Extremely professional,knowledgeable and courteous they are a wonderful service in our area to be utilized.
Had a bunch of flying ant things flying around my house, I tried fixing it myself with fly paper, when they didn't go away I called several pest control companies and found out they were carpenter ants and they could damage my home. Thankfully I found these guys. Thanks Ace!
When your taking care of an elderly parent who lives far away, its good to know that you can count on ace walco. I set up the appointment, they went to my mothers home and took care of the problem. Thanks again.
I called this company in a panic a couple of days ago because I had ants coming into my house. Some had wings! A real person answered the phone. She gave me some good advice over the phone with no pressure to book a visit. But I went ahead because my problem was freaking me out. The technician named Javier came promptly this morning. He was thorough and he explained everything.He was knowledgeable and calm. Now I am so relieved. Price for the service was under other estimates I'd been given.
they did a great job and were very friendly and treated my home as if it were there own.
Our service tech, Dean, was absolutely fantastic. He was extremely thorough, took so much time to explain everything to me, and was extremely pleasant. The fact that AceWalco employs people like Dean will make me refer the company to all of my friends and family! Thanks for such great service.
Natasha did an inspection today.....and she is the most pleasant, knowledgable and helpful person I could have had for this job. She put my mind at ease since I have not had an inspection since Ace Walco did it many years ago. I would recommend your company to anyone who needs this service. It was a most complete inspection by a most delightful person.
To whom it may concern,
This is to inform you that I am getting exceptional service from Mr. Assalam. He never cuts corner and goes above and beyon his call of duty to better serve customers. He is exceptionally good. People like him are asset to the firm.
Excellent overall experience with Ace Walco commencing with Devon, the representative who performed a thorough inspection, followed by Kim, who answered my questions and scheduled a convenient and timely appointment and finally Hector, the technician who promptly eradicated the hornet problem. Every member of the Ace Walco team was knowledgeable, patient, considerate and a consummate professional! Pricing was fair and the ValPak coupon was accepted without a problem. I purchased the TriPak Program and believe it to be very cost effective. Kudos and my sincere appreciation for a job well done!!!
Devastation sets in when you have a house for years only to be told you have termites. Ace Walco came highly recommended and all I can say is Thank God that episode is over.
my neighbor recommended acewalco to me.i am sooo glad i took her advice.the little critters are gone.thanks for a great job!
had problems with flying ants, went on the internet, found an exterminating company and a FRIEND FOR LIFE. SUPER JOB, WALTER... KUDOS TO WALTER!
I was devastated when I found out we had bed bugs, but Devon was my savior for helping me through the process like an expert. He walked me through each step with patience and understanding of the position I was in. I contacted several other pest control companies and all were pushing chemical this, chemical that. But Devon showed me there was another option--the heat treatment. It was new to me, but he explained it well and now I am bed bug free and not ashamed to go out any more. Thanks guys for all your help!
This crew is one of the nicest most respectful Exterminators I've ever come across. They are the best,i wish there were more like them around :)

Walter inspected my home and did a great job. We moved into a home that had been vacant for a few months. He did a thorough inspection and his recommendations cured our problem in a short amount of time.
Thank Ace Walco .. your office manager...staff and especially John for coming to my aid as quickly as he did. I was infested with bugs and John calmed me down and he became my hero. I am now bug free.
Thanks Ace Walco and especially John for taking the fear away when I saw some bugs. I called your office and the managar sent you, very very happy now!
Our exterminator Miguel is very polite, consistence, always on time, gets the job done always. He is a very good employee, you are very lucky to have him. Thank you! Paola =)
We have Miguel as our service rep. and are very satisfied with his work performance. He is very intuitive and very knowledgable.
Miguel is a employee of your company, is very nice, reliable and good worker! Good job!!!
We realized for the first time in 5 years since living here that there was an issue with mice. We placed a call and a rep not only was at our house with an estimate the next day-but was able to start step 1 in an effort to take care of the problem on HIS visit. I signed up immediately for his Tri Pak plan which covered for many issues (such as ants, bees, carpenter ants, any bug or rodent really) for $500.00 LESS than those other companies you see value pak coupons for!! My mother recommended them highly and now I would. Thank You Ace Walco!!!!
We've been a customer of Ace Walco for over 10 years and have been very happy with the quality of service we've received. The technicians are on time, efficient and always happy to answer questions. They are very accommodating when we have 'bug emergencies' and take care of them quickly.
I highly recommend Ace Walco! We called them after seeing termites and they were here within a day. The customer service on the phone was wonderful and the technician that came to the house was extremely knowledgeable, very helpful and polite.
I would absolutely use them again.
We called three companies for estimates. Ace Walco was the most reasonable and we were very pleased with the service and knowledge.
They are very professional and took very good care of us.
I would highly recommend Ace Walco to anyone and we will definitely be using them again!
