Are you having trouble with raccoons in your yard or home? Are they knocking over your garbage cans for food, getting a little too close to your children or pets, or even found their way into your attic? While you might find them cute, these “masked bandits” should not be welcomed anywhere near your home or family. ALCO Animal & Pest Control specializes in raccoon control in Essex County to protect your family and property from the dangers of raccoons.
Even if you do not come into direct contact with a raccoon, there are still health risks. Raccoons carry a number of diseases that can be passed on to humans, such as rabies. Their droppings might also be infected with a roundworm that is harmful to humans and animals. Our Essex County raccoon control professionals suggest that you do not even touch areas of your home where you think raccoons have been. If you must, then wear latex gloves to protect yourself from picking up any illness.
Do not buy into the hype about retail products that protect your home from raccoons because they will be a temporary solution and put you in danger to use them. Our Essex County raccoon control professionals know what it takes to provide you with a long term solution. If you are struggling with a raccoon invasion in your own yard, call ALCO Animal & Pest Control today at 201-261-7566.
