New Jersey Wildlife Removal
At one point or another, you may have had a squirrel or raccoon taking up residence in your home. These creatures are unwanted, un-paying tenants. While some of these animals look cute, in actuality they can be very destructive, causing major damage to your home or dwelling. Major infestations may cause damage to electric wires from constant chewing. Health problems can also arise from feces left behind.
The incidence of rabies in raccoons is very high, which is why you should always hire a trained professional to remove a raccoon or squirrel problem from your property. All of our technicians here at Academy are fully trained in squirrel and raccoon removal, and use animal friendly methods to capture them.
Raccoons in Your Yard
Raccoons could be attracted to your yard for multiple reasons, typically they are looking for food or shelter. Most raccoons will hide in a shed or under a deck, they like shelter that is protected and hidden.
A few raccoons at first might not seem like a problem but if they nest, they can become extremely aggressive. It is best to call a professional raccoon removal service before it gets out of hand.
Raccoons in Your Attic
Raccoons are great climbers and can use tree branches and power lines to scale to the roof of your home. If you hear scurrying or scratching in your ceiling during the night you might have raccoons living in your attic. Call a raccoon removal service right away, raccoons spread disease and can harm your family if they feel threatened.
Raccoons in Your Chimney
Similar to your attic, raccoons also can get into your chimney and enter your home. Although less common than the other two areas, chimneys are an entrance into a warm shelter with tons of food and water that raccoons will use if they are desperate. Cutting branches close to the roof of the house can help prevent raccoons from getting on your roof and invading your home.
