Raccoons are the masked bandits of the animal world and they will treat your home as a burglar would. Finding a weakness in your home’s exterior, they break in and set up their own residence inside. Once they are established in an attic or basement, it can be very difficult to get them to leave. Instead of trying to do this on your own, keep your safety in mind and let experienced professionals take care of the problem. ALCO Animal & Pest Control is here to handle all of your Bergen County raccoon control problems.
Despite their cute appearance, raccoons are capable of aggression and violence. Like any wild animal, a raccoon that feels cornered or threatened can lash out and attack you. This is especially true in the presence of any young raccoons they are trying to protect. In addition to attacks, raccoons can also carry diseases. The worst of these is rabies and a raccoon that is carrying rabies will not always show symptoms of being afflicted. You should avoid all contact with the raccoon and its droppings to ensure you do not catch any illness. Our experts in raccoon control in Bergen County understand these dangers and know what to look out for.
We cannot stress enough that you should not be taking matters into your own hands when it comes to raccoon removal. Keep your family’s best interests at heart and let a professional take care of the problem for you.
