Jersey City pest control

We are New Jersey's top experts in wildlife and raccoon control. We are not a typical Jersey City raccoon control or pest control company. We don't treat wild animals like insects, because they are not! You can't just use poison to get rid of them. You also can't just set a few traps on the ground and call it good. Each situation is unique. And remember, if you have raccoons living in your house, it is almost certainly a female with a litter of young inside. These juveniles must be removed by hand, or they will starve to death and die. And after they are gone, the entry holes into the house must be sealed with professional repairs. Unlike most Jersey City pest control, we focus on complete and permanent solutions, by following these steps:

  • Inspect the entire house, ground to roof, and the attic
  • Seal shut all entry areas with professional grade steel
  • If in attic, we remove the baby raccoons by hand
  • Technical and human raccoon trapping appropriate to situation
  • When necessary, we clean raccoon droppings and replace insulation

Jersey City Raccoon Control Tip: Are Raccoons Dangerous to Cats, Dogs, or Other Pets?
There's nothing more satisfying than seeing your dog or cat enjoy the beauty of nature outside. But if you live in a raccoon-infested area, your greatest concern should be ensuring the safety of your pet. That's why you first have to understand the risks raccoons pose to your pets. That way, you can better protect your pets as a responsible pet parent. 

Why are Raccoons a Threat to Pets?
Raccoons are wild animals. However, in the past few decades, an ever-increasing number of them have learned to take advantage of human shelter and food. Consequently, human-raccoon conflicts have been on the rise. 

While you might observe a seemingly innocuous raccoon trying to steal food from the trash bin or reside in your attic, you mustn't forget that raccoons are wild animals. And although they are generally reclusive and calm, they become ferocious when threatened. 

When your dog or cat sees a raccoon, it might go on the offensive, trying to scare it off. A dog's natural curiosity might also drive it to closely observe the raccoon. However, your pet's intention doesn't matter. Any attempt to get too close will be interpreted as a direct threat. Hence, the raccoon may get pretty vicious and gruesome. 

Common Threats Raccoons Pose to Pets
Here are some of the common threats that raccoons pose to household pets. 

  • Injury
Never mistake the calm disposition of these masked bandits for weakness. When it comes down to a fight, raccoons are well-adapted for survival. Their extremely sharp teeth and claws are enough to inflict a deep injury in one strike. Combine this with their ferocious ‘whirling dervish' fighting style, dexterous hands, and powerful jaws, they make a formidable foe. 

Raccoons are also highly intelligent creatures, and they will try to outwit your pet in a fight. That's why raccoons typically try to take out the eyes of the animal they're fighting with. Once the animal is blinded, the raccoon can easily puncture its lungs and inflict further wounds. 

  • Death
Strange as it might sound, raccoons are quite capable of killing pets, especially small-sized dogs, as well as cats. 

Several horror stories abound of raccoons luring dogs to water for a fight. Raccoons have superior swimming skills and can subdue dogs in water. 

Furthermore, belligerent gangs of raccoons have been known to wipe out entire cat populations from one neighborhood to the next. And most times, they leave the remains uneaten. This has led animal behaviorists to conclude that these seemingly calm animals are capable of killing just for sport. 

  • Diseases
As wild animals, raccoons carry lots of zoonotic diseases. These diseases are present in their bodily fluids (blood and saliva), as well as their droppings. Your pet is at risk when it comes in contact with a raccoon's saliva or droppings. 

Raccoons are one of the most rabid wild animals in the United States, second only to bats. In 2006, about 39% of all rabies cases reported in the US were traced back to a raccoon encounter. Rabies in dogs results in the paralysis of the throat and jaw muscles. Loss of appetite, weakness, seizures, and sudden death are also classic signs of rabies. 

Canine distemper is another vicious disease that can be transmitted to your pet from a raccoon. This disease causes watery to pus-like discharge from your dog's eyes. Fever, nasal discharge, lethargy, and vomiting are also common symptoms. 

A raccoon's feces infested with roundworms can also transfer roundworm eggs to your dog. Common symptoms include loss of coordination, tiredness, and even coma.

What to Do
While raccoons can significantly devastate the health of your beloved pets, let's make it clear that these encounters are pretty rare. However, it's better to be safe than sorry. That's why it is important to deal with any raccoon infestation problem you might be encountering. Also, raccoon-proof your home. 

If you notice your pet fighting with a raccoon, do not directly separate them to avoid getting injured yourself. Instead, use a long stick or rake to try to separate them. If your dog or cat has been injured, promptly take them to your vet. Also, if you notice any of the symptoms discussed above, take your pet for immediate treatment.
