What are raccoons?
Raccoons are a well-recognized, medium-sized mammal native throughout North American, including New Jersey. They are nocturnal scavengers who search for food at night and will eat nearly anything. They are grayish-brown, with dexterous front paws and a black facial mask. They range in size from 16 to 28 inches long and can weigh up to 20 pounds.
Why do I have them?
The most common reason for raccoons to venture into your home is the availability of food sources such as pet food and open trash receptacles. During the winter, these animals will search for a place to nest and will commonly use attics when easily accessed.
Are they dangerous?
Raccoons can carry rabies and other pathogens. They are commonly found in urban areas and are constantly searching for new sources of food and shelter. As a result, many homeowners have raccoon problems including raccoons living in attics or under their decks. They can cause serious property damage and be quite aggressive if they feel threatened.
How do I get rid of raccoons?
Getting rid of raccoons is generally done through trapping and environmental changes. A ChemTec pest professional will design a customized raccoon control program that fits the specific needs of your property, with the goal of eliminating all of these destructive animals and keeping them out for good.
Can I do it myself?
Getting rid of raccoons and other wild animals is best left to the professionals. Many do-it-yourself remedies and traps to rid your property of raccoons simply do not work as the materials they use are not effective. Remember – if misused or mixed improperly, do-it-yourself pesticides can be very dangerous to people, pets or plants.

The pest professionals at ChemTec Pest Control will first confirm the presence of raccoons invading your home or business and then create a treatment plan that will eliminate your pest problem quickly and in an environmentally responsible manner. Before any treatments begin, our inspectors will consult with you regarding your children, pets and gardens and then based on your current situation, they will customize a treatment plan specifically for you.
