If you’ve ever experienced wildlife up close and inside of your home, then you know it can be literally – a wild experience! Here in central and northern parts of New Jersey, homeowners deal with and abundance of wildlife species. Sometimes they try and take up residence inside of our homes. Here are three common invaders:
Squirrel infestations in the attic are quite common in our service area of NJ. They rarely pose a health threat but the problem should be addressed at the first sign of an infestation. Squirrel trapping can be quite tricky and we highly recommend that you contact a pest professional to control squirrels around your home or business.
Raccoons are a common rabies carrier in NJ where populations of them are increasing. They can damage homes and buildings when they attempt to enter through the attic or chimney. Garbage cans that are left open often attract raccoons to your property. They can be quite ferocious when cornered or protecting their young. We highly recommend you leave raccoon trapping to a professional who understand raccoons and takes precautions when removing them.
Moles are a pest and a threat to your lawn and property. They do not hibernate but are active and a threat to your property year round. Proper mole control is best left to a professional who will clearly identify the type of tunnel system involved and create a unique service plan tailored to the specific nuances of the tunnel type(s) on your property.
RM Termite’s wildlife control technicians have the equipment and knowledge necessary to safely remove the animal from your property without injuring it or themselves. They will then relocate the captured animal to a more appropriate location.
