Last week, a rabid raccoon was found in South Plainfield. This was the 16th documented case of rabies in Middlesex County for 2013. The Middlesex County Office of Health Services is monitoring rabies cases throughout the county.

Raccoon Removal in NJ

Raccoons are mischievous little critters as many home owners in NJ know. When you notice a raccoon in your home or office, you need raccoon removal in NJ.

Here are some facts you may not know about raccoons:

Raccoon pelts are not so fashionable today, but during the 1920's they could fetch you up to $14.
Raccoons will never make their den too far from water. People will often notice them playing around water and even washing their food. This is no surprise when you consider that the species name “lotor” translates to “the washer”.
Raccoons can vary greatly in size depending on where they are living. Raccoons living in America average about 14-23 lbs. In Canada, raccoons can weigh as much as 60 lbs! This is due to their high retention of body fat in cold conditions.
Raccoons are noisy, but it is not all in vain. Scientists have discovered that raccoons communicate with over 50 different sounds.
As far as the IQ scale goes, raccoons rank above cats and just below monkeys.
Raccoons may appear to be slow scavengers, but can actually obtain speeds of 15 mph.
A study done showed that raccoon's memory may be better than yours. They can remember solutions to tasks for up to three years.

While all of these things make the little guys just a bit cuter, they can still be a threat to you and your family if they are on your property. With expanding urban sprawl, raccoons have become accustomed to the new landscape and are able to find their way into properties of all kinds. Our professional at ALCO Animal & Pest Control can perform efficient raccoon removal in NJ, while preventing them from returning in the nearby future.

Mice Control in Ridgewood NJ

Mice can live anywhere people can live and are found on six of the seven continents in the world. The experts from Alco NJ Pest Control are professionals at New Jersey mice control in Ridgewood and have published some amazing facts about these little creatures to help you find them in your home and know how to prepare against an infestation.

Mice are survivors – they can tread water for nearly three days, squeeze into a space the size of a nickel, live on a minimal amount of available food and are extremely quick. It is very difficult to catch mice on your own.

Mice can thrive in any situation – a female mouse can have a litter that averages ten pups every three weeks – meaning one year might offer one hundred baby mice. Mice mature in about two months and the population can exponentially explode.

Mice carry diseases – because they are voracious eaters (eating nearly twenty times a day if possible) they also make messes all over their territory. Finding a mouse dropping is a sure sign of a mouse infestation and necessitates immediate mice removal in Ridgewood before people start getting sick.

21 Million American homes become infested with mice during the fall and winter months. Do not become one of these by doing what you can to prepare. Seal openings with silicon or caulk, do not leave food around where it can attract the vermin and place sticky traps or spring traps in likely areas the mice could wander such as basements, attics or crawlspaces. If you find mice, call Alco NJ Pest Control for mice control in NJ.

Squirrel Control in NJ

In the fall, we love to see squirrels running around our yard making preparations for winter, but there is a lot of complexity to these common critters that make them true survivors and very adaptable creatures. The experts at ALCO Animal & Pest Control have many years of experience dealing with squirrels throughout North Jersey and providing squirrel control in NJ.

While squirrels are seen as pests when they find their way indoors, these tress-climbing mammals do possess some amazing qualities:

Squirrels have almost perfect vision and can see from great distances.
The fur on most squirrels is silky and soft, but can repel water and dust thanks to the very fine hairs that cover the body.
Squirrels are social creatures and communicate through squeaks and grunts when danger is approaching. It has been observed that whichever squirrel first spots the predator will be the last to leave the area – putting himself in the most danger.
The incisors in the squirrel’s mouth never stop growing.
There are over 200 species of squirrel across the world.

We hope that these squirrel facts help to give you a better perspective on how remarkable these creatures are. While it is one thing to watch squirrels from your window, you should also make sure that this winter your home is free of any unwanted visitors. Our professionals at ALCO Animal & Pest Control perform professional, humane and safe squirrel removal in NJ.

Pest Control NJ

The weather is quickly getting colder and this is causing insects and animals to seek shelter.

If you are in need of pest control in NJ, Alco NJ Pest Control can humanely remove any insect by using safe and natural products and methods.

  • Fleas. Vacuum your rugs before you spray them. It is important that you throw away the dust bag immediately.
  • Mosquitos. If you have any small pools or birdbaths, change the water frequently. Mosquitos will be attracted to stagnant and dirty water.

A Guide To New Jersey Cockroaches

Just because it is cold outside does not mean your home or business will be free of pests until the springtime. The environment in our climate-controlled buildings can allow insects to thrive even during the most adverse weather conditions outside. The experts at Alco NJ Pest Control have compiled a list of different cockroaches native to New Jersey that can give any homeowner fits this winter.

Cockroaches can be black, brown or reddish brown and usually have oval-shaped bodies supported by spindly legs and they are vectors of many diseases. Cockroaches carry bacteria and parasites that can cause serious sickness in humans and when one is sighted it spells a serious problem. There are three common species of cockroaches in New Jersey and thirty more rare species that can be regional. If a cockroach is seen during the daytime, this is a sign of a serious infestation of these normally-nocturnal insects.
  • The German Cockroach is the most common cockroach in the United States and is often found in humid environments such as kitchens and bathrooms.
  • The Oriental Cockroach is often found in basements in the wintertime as it seeks refuge from the cold. These insects are found in leaf litter and can be tracked inside.
  • American Cockroaches is mostly found in kitchens near available sources of food. This species is particularly aggressive and can be found foraging for food during the daytime.

If you see any cockroach in your home or business, you need a cockroach removal immediately. Only a professional can truly get rid of this problem and ensure it does not return, so you should turn to the unmatched pest control in NJ provided by Alco NJ Pest Control.

The Scariest Spiders in the World

Nothing gets people on-edge quite like spiders. A popular rumor states that no matter where you are you are usually about eight feet from a spider – and while this is not actually a fact, there are millions of spiders and thousands of different species in New Jersey alone. In honor of Halloween, the experts at Alco NJ Pest Control have come out with a list of some of the most disturbing and terrifying creepy crawlies that can be found throughout the world.
Giant Camel Spider – this spider is more closely related to scorpions (who are also arachnids) than spiders, but has an extremely powerful jaw and can grow to be nearly a foot in length. This spider gets his name from old stories that depict these spiders jumping up and chewing through the bellies of camels.

Black Widow Spiders – a spider with quite a reputation, the female black widow spider has notoriously deadly venom and will eat male spiders shortly after mating. It has been found that male spiders will seek out rounder females to mate with because it potentially means that she will be too full for another meal.

Goliath Bird Eating Spider – the largest known species of tarantula in the world, this impressive spider can grow to have legs that reach the size of a dinner plate. The female tarantulas are much larger than the males and they have been observed eating reptiles, rodents and of course – birds.

While you don’t need to worry about a tarantula wandering through your basement, there is always a chance that some of the more common spiders in North Jersey, such as the American House Spider, the Wolf Spider, common Grass Spiders or any number of others can still take up residence in your home. Contact the pest control NJ experts and ask about spider removal in North Jersey.

Identifying NJ Pests

Although the fall is usually the season where insects and reptiles diminish in numbers outside, there is no guarantee that pests won’t be able to find their way into your home and set up shop for the winter. The experts at Alco NJ Pest Control are drawing upon our extensive experience to supply you with some facts about the pests that call North Jersey home and how to prepare yourself to battle these fall invaders, starting with insects.
  • Ants - Whenever you see one ant, there are untold hundreds more that are usually close by. Ants can be vectors for infection and carpenter ants might even do structural damage to your building. Usually these pests are around an open food source, and the kitchen is a good place to sweep for ants in your house.
  • Bed Bugs - The name says it all with these blood sucking insects. Since the bed bugs themselves are elusive, the easiest way to diagnose a problem is by finding small, red bites on your body. These infestations spread quickly in buildings where people live in close proximity.
  • Cockroaches - New Jersey can be home to a number of different cockroach species, but any one of these can spread sickness and discomfort. These pests require a professional pest control NJ to truly eradicate.
  • Crickets -These chirping insects are not too hard to detect in your home, but can flourish in surprising numbers and will become a problem if neglected. Homeowners can usually deal with one or two crickets without professional help, but an infestation requires skilled technicians.
  • Termites - The reputation of termites is well-deserved, and they will do serious damage if left unchecked. In NJ, recent facts support that you have a 1 in 5 chance of having termites.
  • Moths - Drain flies, moths in cabinets and attic moths are not usually a serious concern, but if you see large amounts of these winged pests you need some help from the pros.

Take stock of your home or business and look for signs that you might be hosting these common NJ pests this winter. If you find something alarming, contact Alco NJ Pest Control and have your issue dealt with quickly, professionally and comprehensively.

Squirrel Control in NJ

As the cold weather approaches, animals will start to seek shelter inside. They may try to nest in attics or basements to stay warm. Having squirrels nesting in your home can be unsanitary and even dangerous. If you have a squirrel infestation, it is best to call a professional immediately. ALCO Animal & Pest Control is a professional company that provides high quality squirrel control in NJ at affordable rates.Our professionals can quickly and safely remove any squirrel from your home or business.

Here are some things that you can do in order to prevent squirrels from entering your home:

Hot pepper spray. You can make homemade squirrel repellent by mixing a very small amount of cayenne pepper with water. Just apply it to wood or wires where a squirrel may chew through.

Seal any holes. Squirrels can squeeze through very tight holes. Check any areas where pipes or wires enter your home and screen off any excess space.

Hopefully these tips will help keep squirrels out of your home or business. If they do get through your defenses, contact ALCO Animal & Pest Control for fast and efficient squirrel control in NJ.

Learn About “Fall Invaders”

There is a subset of pest control problem that does not signal an infestation or that your home is being overrun – these are simply pests trying to use your home for the winter. Called “overwintering insects” and “fall invaders”, around this time of year it is not uncommon for homeowners to notice pill bugs, earwigs, millipedes and more to wind up in areas like attics, near baseboards, behind drapes or basically anywhere. Most of these bugs will die because of the dry and hot indoor air, but those that do not are the ones that will require pest control in NJ in order to help stop.

The first line of defense is usually an outside barrier treatment. This treatment should be done ASAP because chances are if you are having it done late into the fall season (around halfway through October is a good deadline) the bugs are most likely already inside. Check places like your indoor plants for signs. Most bugs – even the ones that eat other bugs – will congregate near this open food source. Clear away rotting leaves and debris from your plants and keep them trim so that you can keep a handle on any bugs that might try to make this area home.

While pestproofing is something a homeowner usually must undertake on his or her own, NJ pest control companies like Alco Pest Control NJ are willing to help go over hotspots and ensure openings are sealed correctly. An easy way to start this is to pull woodpiles, mulch, plants and debris away from your home foundation. Bugs will live in this material and if they are allowed to crawl around the outside of your house, there is a higher chance you will be seeing them inside.

No one can truly seal their home completely against bugs, but by getting in touch with a professional pest control company you can take the first step. Contact an expert at Alco Pest Control NJ and get the “fall Invaders” out.

Common NJ Pests

In NJ there are many animals that may encroach on your property, and can potentially become problematic. This is a list of the most common pests that you may encounter in NJ:


  • Raccoons – These mischievous, albeit cute, critters can become quite a nuisance especially during this season. Right now raccoons are gorging themselves adding up to 50% body fat to get ready for the winter. They can be a big problem considering their highly developed tactile sense. Their front paws consist of five fingers, giving them human like hands, so they can open many things just like you.
  • Bees – Most notably in NJ are honey bees. Bees will build nests in almost every place possible; cracks in walls, attics, boxes, pipes, ventilators, shades, trees and garages. It is amazing how quickly honey bees can form a hive, but they can become a nuisance. Often when there are abnormally large numbers, it can lead to unwanted encounters, unfortunately for some people these encounters can become fatal.
  • Mice and Rats – Each winter, nearly 21 million homes in the US are invaded by these rodents. They will typically enter a home between now and February, looking for food and shelter. Mice can squeeze through a hole about the size of a dime, rats about the size of a quarter. This means that a small crack or opening in the exterior of your home becomes an open door for these rodents. 


If you are noticing signs of any of these, or other, pests it is a good idea to contact a NJ pest control company. When considering a pest control company it is good to make sure that they inspect your home inside and out, top to bottom. This will ensure to rid you of your pest problem and ensure the pests do not return.

If you have any questions about pest control in NJ contact Alco Pest Control today. Alco employs professional, trained pest control technicians, ensuring the best solution for your pest problem.

Common Fall Pests

The change in the weather always brings about pests. Animals look for different places to live and insects’ life cycles change. Alco NJ Animal and Pest Control provides pest control in NJ. All of our services are fully guaranteed, and all of our methods and products are completely safe and humane. Here are some of the pests that may be infesting your home or business:


Rodents
Mice and rats do not like the cold weather and will try to look for a place indoors to nest throughout the cold months. Try to make sure any small holes or gaps are filled or screened off so that they cannot enter.

Flies
Flies reach the peak of their life cycles in early fall since they have had all year to reproduce. The colder weather may also force them to move indoors.

Bees
Wasps, yellow jackets and honey bees can become aggressive as temperatures drop. Their nests grow considerably throughout the summer and then food becomes more scarce during the colder seasons. This can make these stinging insects easy to agitate.


We provide same day services as well as 24 hour emergency services. Contact Alco NJ Animal and Pest Control you would like more information on any of our NJ pest control services.

How To Get Rid of Ants

The change in seasons is a great time to evaluate the defenses your home has against pests. New Jersey is a great climate for insects, rodents, reptiles and other pests who will try to come indoors when the weather is cold if they can. Take some pointers from the experts at Alco NJ Pest Control and prep your house against ants who may try to take over your home this fall.
  1. Seal the entryways of your home so that the ants can not get inside. Caulk up the cracks, make sure screens and windows close all the way, and stuff putty in to fill the gaps around the foundation that could be letting ants inside.
  2. Close food containers and keep your kitchen sanitary and clean. Ants are attracted to any source of food such as full garbage cans, stains and fruit juice or similar messes that might not have been cleaned properly. Keeping your home as clean as possible is a good way to cut down on these invaders.
  3. Use a natural form of ant deterrent such as talc (found in baby powder) around windows and doors, because it will repel ants who are sensitive to these substances.

Tips for Dealing With Winter Pests

Although spring and summer are truly the worst seasons for pest control NJ, there are plenty of problems that homeowners can encounter during the cold winter months. Alco NJ Pest Control has released a list of nuisance pests that you might need professional assistance to deal with:

Overwintering insects are bugs that “hibernate” in a sense – they remain dormant in a nest, hive or similar structure throughout the winter. If this hive is in your home, you should take any steps necessary to remove it before spring time.

Bugs or other pests can be brought in through firewood, so it is recommended that before the weather is too cold you stock your firewood and hose it off before bringing it inside the house.

Bugs are a huge problem during the winter, because as long as there is food and warmth they will be able to survive. Spiders, moths, flies, bed bugs and ants are just some of the pests that you might have in your home or business, and even though you can take care of the bugs you can see, it is advised that you always consult experts and get pest control NJ.

Rodents are masterful creatures when it comes to surviving harsh conditions, and they can be a difficult task to face when you need to remove rats or mice. Take steps to reduce your risk of getting these pesky critters in your house by covering and containing food or by sealing any potential entryways. If you see a mouse or a rat in your house, immediately call an NJ pest control technician.


Winter is always a challenge for homeowners, but pest control doesn't need to be a factor in getting through this part of the year. Alco Pest Control NJ can answer any questions about winter pest control, so call us today at 201-261-7566.

5 Great Fall Pest Control NJ Tips

Pests are one of the many realities that homeowners face during everyday life. Alco Pest Control NJ is an exceptional pest control company with a record of excellent service and unparalleled results, and we believe that knowledge is the most important weapon in the arsenal of anyone faced with a pest problem. Even though it is always recommended that a professional pest control NJ service be contacted for prevailing pest issues, there are some home remedies that can help with any situation.
  1. Termites usually eat only the soft part of the wood, leaving the annual rings intact when they bore holes. This can help you diagnose a termite problem in your home.
  2. If you have a problem with flying insects in your home that you cannot deal with, aerosol sprays can disrupt their internal processes and stun then so that you will be able to remove them.
  3. Any standing water can become a breeding ground for mosquitos. Make sure birdbaths and pools are drained as much as possible so that your property does not have these winged nuisances.
  4. In apartments, a problem in one room will spell disaster for the whole complex. Make sure that you keep food in sealed containers and have regular NJ pest control services come and treat you for potential invaders.
  5. Mammals such as raccoons, mice, groundhogs or similar vermin will try to go indoors as the weather gets colder. Some of these pests can even squeeze into gaps and holes as small as a quarter in order to gain access to your house. Seal these openings with steel wool or caulk that will deny any pests entrance to your attic or basement.

Tips For Keeping Your Home Pest-Free This Winter

As the weather begins to get cooler, the behavior of animals and insects starts to change. Many pests are more comfortable in warmer climates and will attempt to make their way into homes and businesses. This can happen, and it is unfortunate when it does. Luckily, Alco NJ Pest Control is here to help you when it does. We are a professional company that provides high quality pest control services to NJ.

Here are some simple precautions that you can take so that pest control in NJ is not necessary. The most important thing to do is to make sure that your home is fully sealed. Many animals, such as squirrels and raccoons can enter your home through very small openings. It is said that full-sized squirrels can fit into holes the size of your fist. Some entry points can include chimneys and spaces where pipes or wires enter your home. Make sure that all of these spaces are blocked off. One way to do this is to cover screens over any entrances that are not fully plugged. On the other side of this, do not cover any holes if there is already an animal living in your attic. They are likely going in and out, and this will just keep them inside.

Although summer weather is generally too hot for animals to survive in the attic, it is the ideal temperature and atmosphere for animals in the fall and cooler months. This makes summer the perfect time to check your attic for holes and make sure they are all filled. You can also spray your attic with animal repellents that are found in common gardening or hardware stores. Some people make homemade repellents by mixing cayenne pepper with water.

Make sure that branches do not get too close to your windows. Several animals reside in trees which makes them only a short jump away from being inside your home. By keeping your branches trimmed and pruned, you can limit animals’ access into your house through windows.

We understand that getting an animal out of your home or business is top priority. That is why we offer same day services as well as special 24 hour emergency services. If you would like any more information on any of our NJ pest control services, call Alco NJ Pest Control at 862-220-5297.

Groundhog Removal NJ Done By Alco NJ Animal Control

You do not have to be a farmer to still have a serious problem with groundhogs. Also called woodchucks, groundhogs burrow holes and tunnels extensively, sometimes excavating as much as 700 pounds of dirt for a single den. If you think a groundhog is living in your yard, you need groundhog removal NJ done by Alco NJ Pest Control before there are serious damages to your home and property.

Groundhogs chew on anything you have planted, even sometimes climbing trees to eat apples or pears. If you have a garden, there is a good chance the groundhog will burrow right next to it so that the little critter can help himself to his own personal salad bar. A fence will not help you with this problem, because groundhogs will simply dig underneath these structures. You need someone who specializes in NJ groundhog removal if you want to put an end to the devastating work done by these small rodents.


Alco NJ Pest Control uses organic, humane methods of groundhog removal in NJ to ensure the safety of our customers and the animals we are removing. Contact us today by calling 973-540-9944 for a consultation from a groundhog removal expert in New Jersey.

Squirrel Control in Somerset County, NJ

Squirrels are part of NJ's diverse wildlife. They are precocious little creatures, often clever and mischievous. If they enter your home, they can become quite a risk to you and your family. ALCO Animal & Pest Control provides you with same-day squirrel control in Somerset County, NJ.

If you have a bird feeder in your backyard, you have probably seen squirrels doing everything they can to get the seeds.

Although squirrels live in trees, they are very adaptable and can survive in urban environments.

Through urban sprawl, squirrels have become accustomed to humans, often viewing them as a food source and approaching without fear. Hand feeding squirrels is not recommended due to the possibility of spreading diseases. Even if the squirrel is disease free, the bites can really hurt!
