Raccoon Prevention Tips for Weehawken, NJ Residents

Raccoons, those furry masked bandits, can wreak a lot of havoc on your property and in your home if they are ever given the chance. Raccoons can usually be found living outside, but if lured to your home, barn, or garden shed by the promise of easy access to food and shelter, they can become a huge problem for you and your family. The problems that raccoons can cause inside of your Weehawken home can escalate quickly, causing you a lot of stress and costing you a lot of money in damage repairs. To help prevent your home from becoming a haven for raccoons, the wildlife professionals at ChemTec suggest the following raccoon prevention tips:

  • Make sure that outdoor garbage cans have a tight-fitting lid and that all garbage is placed inside of them each day.
  • Pick-up any uneaten pet food each day before it becomes raccoon “chow”.
  • Place garden areas and compost piles away from the outside of your home and outbuildings.
  • Cut overgrown tree branches back from your structures; raccoons use the branches to gain easy access to roofs.
  • Fix any potential access points found in the exterior of your home. Check your buildings’ rooflines, chimneys, attic vents, and other areas for openings that raccoons could take advantage of. Remember they can use their people like “fingers” to open up a small space to make it large enough for them to enter and exit easily to and from.

If raccoons have become a problem on your property or in your home, contact ChemTec Pest Control. We can provide an effective raccoon control program that consists of trapping and environmental changes to humanely remove these pests from your home and to keep them from returning.

How to Keep Carpenter Ants from Damaging Your Weehawken, NJ Home

It is very important to keep carpenter ants from being attracted to and being able to enter into your Weehawken home. These ants often find their way into your home while foraging for food and then decide to stay to create a satellite nest(s) within your home’s structural wood. If not eliminated from your home the tunnels and nesting areas that they create can cause extensive damage to your home that could eventually affect its structural integrity. To keep carpenter ants from damaging your home it most important to reduce moisture levels in and around it; carpenter ants are attracted to moisture, preferring to nest in wood that has been previously damaged by water. Reducing areas of moisture around your property by ensuring that gutters are working properly, fixing leaky pipes and fixtures, replacing water damaged wood, placing dehumidifiers in basement areas, and making sure that crawl spaces are properly ventilated can all help to deter carpenter ants. To protect your property and home from carpenter ants, turn to the pest professionals at ChemTec Pest Control. Our technicians are highly trained and have the experience needed to completely remove a carpenter ant infestation. Please contact us today for more information about carpenter ants, more ways to deter them, or to schedule a free inspection.
