Tips for Preventing Spring Infestations

Spring has sprung, and it is now officially the most common time for pests to emerge. While looking for a place to build their nest or food for their young, these wild animals might come a little too close for comfort. Before it’s too late, make sure you’re taking the preventative measures to ensure a pest-free Spring.

  1. Keep extra brush and wood away from home structures. Pests such as termites, bees, and wasps are known to get into wood and form nests. Store these items away from your home and garage. 
  2. Keep food in airtight containers. Especially if you have pets in your home, it would be in your best interest to pick their food bowl off the ground and immediately rinsing it out after your pet has eaten. Keep pantry/cabinet foods such as chips and cereal in plastic containers with lids.
  3. Seal up all of the entry points around your home. Check the outside of your house for any cracks or holes. Consider adding a mesh barrier to ward off wildlife.  

Despite your best efforts to keep your home pest-free, infestations are still common. We specialize in removing squirrels, raccoons, and other pests in the New York New Jersey area. For a complete inspection and evaluation please contact us or call us at 917-336-6039 and we will be happy to make an appointment at your convenience.

Keep Pigeons Out

Did you know that pigeons are the pestiest bird in the United States? They will get themselves situated, and then damage your property. Pigeons tend to prefer higher places that protect them from predators, while offering food and safety. They will scavenge outdoor restaurants for food, and look for nests near heating units to keep themselves warm.

 

Pigeon nests are mostly composed of twigs and are usually covered in droppings. These nests can be found in farm lands, parks, and city buildings. They tend to migrate toward city window ledges and windows. They tend to reuse the same spots and spaces to build nests, which makes it more difficult for them to leave.

 

They can get into your home through any kind of elevated space, such as an attic or covered/tarped rooftop. They can also gain entrance through broken windows, any opened gaps, or loose vents.

 

 Make sure to never feed the pigeons or leave out bird feeders, as they have an excellent memory when it comes to their sources of food. You can tuck netting under places where the pigeons nest, such as under an air conditioning vent or awning. This will keep them from staying there. Also, be sure to cover chimneys and seal off your attic.

Prevent Mice From Entering your Home

Watching a small mouse scurry across your floor is rarely a welcomed sight. Not only are mice annoying, but they also offer quite a few health threats. These critters multiply quickly, so make sure you’re resolving the issue before it gets too dangerous.

  1. Keep trash sealed. Make sure that your garbage bags are tightly closed and thoroughly cleaned.
  2. Seal food. Mice are coming into your home in search of food, so keep your food shut tight.
  3. Seal foundation. Mice can squirm their way in through cracks in foundation. If you have stacked stone or rubble foundations, mice can easily fit in between gaps.

Sometimes, no matter how hard you try, mice just won’t leave.If your home is infested, leave it to the professionals. Your home has a lot to offer these pests. Warmth, shelter, and food.

Eliminate Skunk Odor

Skunks are nuisances, and so are their horrendous stench. The first thing you’ll be wondering after getting sprayed is how to remove the awful smell. We have all heard the old remedy of bathing in tomato juice, but this has been scientifically proven to not neutralize the order, but instead your nose is full of the strong scent of the tomato juice.

A remedy found by Myth busters that was proved to work is s a quart of fresh three percent hydrogen peroxide, a ¼ cup of baking soda, and a teaspoon of liquid soap, such as Dawn Dish washing Liquid. The soap is able to break down the oily nature of the skunk liquid, and the peroxide and baking soda form the musk into an odorless acid. Soak clothes in a mixture of 10% Clorox Bleach, 90% water, and then wash in a heavy duty detergent.

You can eliminate the skunk smell in just minutes if you act quickly, but call us to remove the skunks! We specialize in removing bats, rats, and other pests in the New York New Jersey area.
