Zombie Raccoons

Zombie Raccoons? It might sound crazy, but it is more possible than you may think. Raccoons, when infected with diseases can exhibit incredibly weird behaviors. There is one disease that causes raccoons to act like the living dead.  Raccoon distemper is an incurable disease that causes raccoons to walk on their hind legs, in the day time, and bearing their teeth. They are also known to fall backwards into a comatose state, when infected.
Distemper is a very contagious and viral disease. It can not be transmitted to humans, but cats and dogs, and some other mammals are susceptible. While there is no cure, there are vaccines to help protect your pets.
Early stages of the disease show up as mild to moderate respiratory problems, insomnia, runny noses, and watery eyes (which can lead to the development of conjunctivitis or pneumonia). The final stages of the disease can lead to the animal only being able to move in circles, to eventual paralysis and brain damage. The final stage of this disease is similar to that of rabies.
If you notice raccoons exhibiting these behaviors, call a professional wildlife removal service. If your dog or cat have these symptoms, take them to a vet as soon as possible.
We specialize in removing raccoons, rats, and other pests in the New York New Jersey area. For a complete inspection and evaluation please contact us or call us at 718-227-7227 and we will be happy to make an appointment at your convenience.

Keep Critters Away From Your Garden

With the warm weather finally making its debut, gardening season is upon us. After spending weeks perfecting your garden, animals tearing it up is less than welcomed. Especially after spending the whole winter looking forward to tomatoes, cucumbers, and other crops, the last thing you need is pests disturbing your garden.

Skunks have a tendency to dig up gardens and eat fruit or foilage. You will probably be able to tell if a skunk visits your yard by the strong odor that they leave behind. Rabbits will also most likely feed on the foliage in your yard during the day, raccoons will leave it a mess at night. Other animals to  watch out for are deer, groundhogs, and even foxes.

In attempt to deter these critters away from your yard, try odor repellents. Taste repellents could be sprayed on plants, and will cause a bad taste on the plants. It’s important to note that these repellents will only upset their stomachs, and are not designed to actually hurt the animals.

Despite your best efforts, certain animals just won’t budge. Leave it to the professionals! For a complete inspection and evaluation please contact us or call us at 917-633-0146 and we will be happy to make an appointment at your convenience.
