Protecting New Jersey's Historic Landmarks

When we think of pest control, we generally think of treating homes for ants, bees and other occasional pests. We also consider treating restaurants to assure they are cockroach and rodent free. However, we may seldom think of historical landmarks that are structurally threatened by wood destroying pests such as termites. Some of these landmarks have existed for more than one hundred years. One such historic landmark is the Civil War Drill Hall (Drill Hall) in Leonia, New Jersey.

A greener approach to bed bug control

Few pests pose control challenges as complex as bed bugs. Bed bugs are tiny persistent pests that can be very hard to find. They travel easily and can migrate effortlessly through walls of adjacent units, from one dwelling to the next. Even worse, bed bug strains that are resistant to pyrethroid insecticides are now widespread throughout the United States, according to research conducted by the University of Kentucky.

Historical “Brick Church” Receives Termite Prevention Treatment

Completed in 1768, the St. James-Santee Episcopal Church has stood for more than 240 years, withstanding two wars and surviving the congregations of the past.

Fighting Termites at ‘Old Swedes Church’

After weeks of plundering and destruction in the spring of 1778, British troops squared off with local militia near what today is Swedesboro, N.J. According to the Rev. Nicholas Collin’s journal, both sides “aimed so badly that the bullets flew in all directions so that it was best to stay inside.” American troops arrived in Swedesboro a month later, set up quarters in Collin’s church and spent several weeks quelling the unrest. Their stay in Swedesboro had long-reaching effects – the church was so damaged it had to be rebuilt after the war. In 1784, Trinity Church, also known as “Old Swedes Church,” went from being a log cabin to the 300- seat Georgian building still standing today, more than two centuries later. You can still hear the echoes of history at Trinity thanks to an innovative historic preservation team that faced a new conflict – against termites – and won, preserving one of the oldest churches in the United States.
