Fall and Winter Animial Control

As fall and winter approach, we cozy up inside our warm homes. Unfortunately, there are invaders as small as an ant or as large as a family of skunks or squirrels, your best defense against pests is sealing off their entry points into your house.

Examine the Exterior
Mice are most likely the biggest wintertime pest concern.  A mouse can sneak in through a hole no bigger than a dime, while a raccoon-size creature can enter through a 6-inch opening. You should look for light coming through cracks and feel for air movement.

Windows and Doors
If you leave your windows or doors open, they should be fit with screens, if they already have screens check them for tears. Seal cracks around windows and door frames with caulk or foam. Be sure to use weather stripping on your exterior doors and garage.

IF YOU’RE INVADED:  Leave It to a Pro!
Large, potentially dangerous animals like raccoons should always be handled by a professional. If you’re sick, elderly, or have kids or pets, then you might not want to tackle a rodent problem on your own, because they carry disease. Skunks, Bats and Squirrels are also difficult to trap. Call a professional to handle wildlife removal for safe and efficient results. For more information about WILDLIFE REMOVAL please visit our Company Website.

How to Prevent Squirrels From Getting In My Attic

Squirrels in Hunterdon County, New Jersey use the Fall Season to prepare for winter; by storing food and finding a safe shelter, protected from the elements. We don’t notice the activities of the cute furry little creatures as they scamper through our yards and parks. That is until they find that safe shelter in our home is perfect for winter nesting.

It is not easy to keep squirrels out of your home, but with a few simple precautions you can help prevent squirrel infestation.
Grey Squirrels are intelligent; although wild and love to be in nature, if they find a way into your home, they will choose to nest in the attic.
