Now that it is cold, it is not uncommon for raccoons to try and escape by nesting in people’s attics. If you have a raccoon in your attic, then you are in definite need of raccoon removal in Bergen County. ALCO NJ Animal Control is there for you 24 hours a day for seven days a week should this situation arise. We offer same day service as well as emergency services.

If you do have raccoons in your attic, chimney or anywhere in your home, it is recommended that you should not engage or attempt to remove them on your own. A professional should always be contacted for dealing with Bergen County raccoon removal.

It is usually around spring time that a raccoon has babies and it become increasingly protective. Raccoons can also be known to carry rabies. They sometimes even lack any visible symptoms entirely. Whether they are infected or not, raccoon bites and scratches are not pleasant and are best avoided. Apart from carrying disease, raccoons will leave their waste in your attic. This is another way to bring parasites and diseases into your home.

Raccoons generally live five or six years but can go as long as 12. They tend to live in populated areas and are well adapted to cities and suburbs. They have no qualms about getting into somebody’s house, and are very good at climbing and making their ways through holes. Their favorite spots are dens or attics.

Bats are small animals that can find their way into your home in a number of ways.  They can fit into the smallest spaces and set up inside your warm and comfortable attic.  Aside from the chance that you may get attacked because bats are just as aggressive as other animals when cornered, bats also carry diseases with them.  The most serious illness they may pass on to a human is rabies; simple contact is enough to contract it.  Bat control in Bergen County is essential to avoid these health complications.  

Once bats find a home that provides them with the warmth and shelter they need, it is not easy to get them to leave.  For your own safety, do not try and remedy an infestation by yourself; you should let professionals handle it instead.  To learn more about Bergen County bat control and to receive a free estimate, contact ALCO Animal & Pest Control today at 201-261-7566.

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.
