Raccoons going in and out of storm drain in Hopewell, NJ

Raccoons going in and out of storm drain in Hopewell, NJ

These homeowners in Hopewell, NJ. found themselves with a raccoon infestation on their property. While the raccoons did not make their way inside the home, it is stressful even to see these large animals scavenging around your property. Here, they were crawling in and out of storm drains around because the grates had a gap that was large enough for the raccoons to gain access. 

Wildlife has a way of exploiting weaknesses in a structure in order to gain entry. Often, its water-saturated, rotting fascia, soffit boards, or roof shingles. Other times, the weakness is a structural opening like chimneys or storm drains that do not have an adequate protective covering to block access. For this homeowner, I installed six storm grate covers that would keep out raccoons and other larger wildlife from entering the drains. I’m confident that by blocking these gaps, the raccoons will move off the property to find another home.

Unfortunately, we weren't able to get a good before image, so here we show a typical open storm drain.

Job Stories From Hopewell, NJ
A Massive Digger Bee Infestation in Hopewell, NJ

This homeowner in Hopewell, NJ had a massive digger bee infestation throughout her front yard and backyard! Digger bees are solitary insects that nest underground. They can be shiny metallic black, dull black or brown in color, can either have or not have white, yellow, and/or red markings, and can range in size from 1/4 to 1/2 on inch. The first sign of digger bees in lawns are little mounds of soil with a hole nearby and digger bees flying over the area. Digger bees are solitary bees that live one colony per hole, but there may be many holes in an area creating digger bee communities. They're not generally aggressive stinging insects, as the males don't even have the ability to sting, and typically only sting if they're stepped on or handled directly. However, people who are allergic to bee stings should be careful.

In order to exterminate the digger bees, we applied a granular bait to every single digger bee mound and then injected a residual dusting application into each one. Both of these treatments will rapidly eliminate the digger bees.

Gaps Around the Pipes Allow Mice Access Inside in Hopewell, NJ

The owner of a commercial property in Hopewell, NJ, called our Pest Control division after one of her staff members found a mouse in one of the offices. Although, during our interior inspection, we found several mouse droppings in 3 separate offices, we needed to inspect the exterior of the building to find out how to mice were getting inside. Sure enough, we found several wide gaps around a couple of utility pipes that led inside. 

First, we cleaned up all the mice droppings on the inside and outside of the building. Next, we installed several rodent bait stations throughout the inside of the building and several exterior rodent bait stations on the outside. Afterward, we stuffed all the gaps around the utility pipes with chew-proof metal mesh and then sealed them with a waterproof adhesive. Lastly, we scheduled several follow-up appointments to monitor the infestation and replenish the bait in the bait stations as needed.

Yellow Jackets Sneaking Into the Exhaust Vent in Hopewell, NJ

This homeowner in Hopewell, NJ, called our Pest Control Division after getting stung by several yellow jackets while doing some chores in the laundry room! So we were sent out to inspect, find the source, and treat. As we surveyed the exterior of the home we noticed that a number of yellow jackets were hovering around an exhaust vent. As we took a closer look, we noticed that the exhaust vent was damaged and that the yellow jackets were actually harboring inside of it! This was why the homeowner was seeing the yellow jackets inside her home.

To exterminate the yellow jackets, we injected a knockdown aerosol application into the gaps of the exhaust vent. This product will quickly neutralize the yellow jackets. Once they were eliminated, we then treated the area with a liquid residual to prevent any future yellow jackets from re-infesting the area. Before we left, we advised that homeowner to replace the broken exhaust vent ASAP to prevent any future infestations and mentioned that our Wildlife Division can come out and replace for her. She was happy to hear that and scheduled an appointment.

Mice Use Broken Exhaust Vent & Infest Home in Hopewell, NJ

We were recently sent out to a home in Hopewell, NJ to handle a mouse infestation in her laundry room. When we arrived and started inspecting the property, we noticed that one of the exhaust vents was exposed. As we took a closer look, we found multiple mouse droppings around the area. This was how the mice were getting access into the home.

First, we carefully cleaned up all the mouse droppings in the laundry room and outside the home. Once we were finished, we installed several rodent bait stations throughout the laundry room and along the exterior of the home. Lastly, we scheduled several follow up visits to replenish the bait stations and monitor the mice activity. On our next visit, our Little Rascals Nuisance Wildlife Division will come out and install a DryerWallVent® over the exposed exhaust vent. The DryerWallVent® is made out of heavy-duty galvanized steel and its large opening and angled damper provide maximum airflow efficiency for safe venting. Integrated magnets keep the damper closed when not in use, preventing pests, bats, birds, and all nuisance wildlife from infesting the home.

Warm Weather Brings Out the Ants in Hopewell, NJ

As this customer in Hopewell, NJ was cleaning her kitchen to get ready for a party, she noticed a large amount of ants in her sink. She had heard about Cowleys through Facebook, so she found our number and gave us a call. 

During our inspection, we did find a ton of ants crawling on the kitchen countertops, but we needed to find out where they were coming from. So we followed their trail and it lead to a small crack in the window right above the sink. We then went outside and continued following their trail to a small shrub about 15 feet from the home.

For treatment, we applied an ant gel bait along the kitchen counter and then treated the cracks of the kitchen window with an aerosol flushing agent. Next, we went outside and applied a granular bait along the landscape areas of the home. Lastly, we treated the ant trail on the outside of the home and the entire exterior of the home with a liquid residual. Once the ants come in contact with any of these products, they'll return to their nest and transfer the treatments throughout their colony. A short while later, the ants are exterminated. Once the ants are eliminated, the homeowner will repair the crack in her window.

Small Opening in Garage Door Causes Mouse Problem for Homeowner in Hopewell, NJ

As this homeowner in Hopewell, NJ was cleaning out his garage, he noticed a large amount of mice droppings in the area. Concerned that he might have an infestation, he called our office for help and we were sent out to inspect and treat.

After thoroughly inspecting the entire garage, we noticed that the droppings were primarily located by the garage door. We took a closer look and noticed a gap in the garage door. The rubber seal that goes on the bottom of the garage door was missing, giving the mice a clear and easy way to get into the garage. Mice only need an opening the size of a pencil to enter a building. 

First, we carefully cleaned up the droppings and installed several rodent bait stations near the garage door, throughout the garage, and along the exterior of the building. After showing the homeowner the gap in the garage door, we installed an Xcluder® Rodent Proof Door Sweep underneath the garage door. This will create a barrier that is impenetrable to rodents and other pests. Lastly, we’re going to schedule several follow-up visits to replenish the bait stations and monitor the mice activity.

Thanks to Raccoons, the Attic is now a Bathroom in Hopewell, NJ

This homeowner in Hopewell, NJ had a raccoon living in his attic and needed Little Rascals to safely remove it. Upon inspection, we noticed that the gable event was torn apart by the raccoon and there was a large pile of raccoon droppings near the gable vent. We then inspected the attic and saw raccoon pawprints all over the air ducts as well as several piles of raccoon droppings in the insulation. 

First, we temporarily enclosed the gable vent off with hardware cloth and installed a one-way device over it. The one-way allows the raccoon to safely leave the area but prevents it from getting back in. We also placed several baited devices nearby. Once we safely retrieve the raccoon, we will relocate it to a new humane environment, disinfect the attic area, and replace the gable vent with Pest-Blok.

Pest-Blok doesn't restrict the airflow to the attic, undergoes a silicone-protected polyester coating process that makes it last longer, and guards the home against raccoons and all nuisance wildlife. Our Contracting will come out to the home, remove all the contaminated insulation, and reinsulate the attic with blown-in cellulose insulation

Poor Sanitation Leads to Fruit Flies & Mice in Hopewell, NJ

This commercial building in Hopewell, NJ was having an issue with mice and fruit flies throughout the kitchen. When we inspected the area, we found gunk in the floor drains, spilled liquids on the sides of the equipment, and food debris underneath the sinks and equipment. There was also a buildup of debris and liquids behind the kitchen equipment. All of these sanitation issues contributed to the fruit fly and mice infestation.

We immediately informed the owner and recommended a few simple cleaning procedures to prevent these types of pest problems. The owner agreed and both he and his staff immediately began to clean all the problems areas. Once they finished, we treated all the floor drains with a liquid application, that removes the bad bacteria from the drain, and a bio-foam solution, that removes the organic build-up, odors, and scum in the drain. Both of these products will exterminate the fruit fly larvae harboring in the drains. We also treated the high infestation areas with a fly bait to control the adult fruit flies.

Afterward, we installed several interior and exterior rodent bait stations. Next, we stuffed all gaps and potential openings throughout the building with stainless steel mesh and sealed them in place with a waterproof adhesive. Before we left we scheduled several follow-up visits to monitor the rodent and fruit fly infestation, replenish the bait in the bait stations, and apply any additional treatments if needed.
