Challenging raccoon trapping job in Kendall Park, NJ

Before After

Raccoons, although they walk on all fours like most mammals, have human-shaped paws with thumbs, not to mention razor-sharp claws. Because of their anatomy, these animals are amazingly good climbers. They are able to climb and walk on a much steeper roofs than we can. Unless you are a skilled rock climber, most of us regular folks have limited grip strength relative to our body weight, and none of us have a nice set of claws to dig into materials. 

This wildlife job for a homeowner in Kendall Park, NJ was particularly tricky, and it took some extra planning because of this home’s steep pitched roof. To make matters even more challenging, there wasn’t much  space between the house, and the ladder angle was a bit steeper than I would have liked. To solidly secure the ladder, I was able to ”foot” it right up against the bottom of the fence, so it would not "kick out" while I was on it.

Buttressed by the fence, this ladder would not budge on inch, and I had plenty of of security to work with my hands off the ladder without worrying about whether it would move while I was on it. I installed a “positive” set up. With this type of set up, any animal has no choice but to go through the trap, no matter if it's coming or going from the home. 

The raccoon was soon trapped, and I safely relocated him far away from any human habitats. After trapping the trespasser, I closed off the access into the home in order to prevent any further wildlife intrusions. All in all, this was a satisfying job with a great resolution and a very happy homeowner who could now enjoy his home without sharing it with a destructive raccoon!

Job Stories From Kendall Park, NJ
Large Yellow Jacket Nest Exterminated in Kendall Park, NJ

During a routine treatment service at this property in Kendall Park, NJ, we discovered a large yellow jackets nest in a tree about 15 feet up.  

Yellow jackets are aggressive, territorial wasps, with distinctive yellow-and-black coloration, that are known for their propensity to sting anyone and anything that they perceive as a threat, such as those who venture too close to their nests or their food.

We grabbed our extendable pole, attached an aerosol application to it, and injected the treatment directly into the nest. This product rapidly exterminates the yellow jackets. Once the population diminished, we removed the nest, and the branch it was attached to, and disposed of them properly.

Insect light traps successfully kill flys in Kendall Park Senior Center

Cowleys initiated a fly control program at a senior living community in Kendall Park.  While maintaining sanitation and cleanliness is important to fly control, sometimes a clean facility or kitchen is not enough, and a pest control service needs to be called in for more intensive measures. There is no single fly control program that will work in all cases, and we have a variety of tools to use depending on the circumstances causing the infestation.

 

For this facility’s fly control program, we felt the problem would be most quickly resolved through installing fly lights, otherwise known as Insect Light Traps (ILTs) (see attached pictures).  These traps use ultraviolet light bulbs to draw flies to a non-toxic sticky board inside. At Cowleys, we not only use these lights to trap these filthy pests, but also to monitor their activity level. 

A week after the fly light installation, we could not have ben more pleased with the results. The head of maintenance of the senior living community confirmed that the fly defense program was completely successful. There were no longer any fly issues, and even better for him, no more resident complaints!

Starlings have made a nest on the second floor of my house where the roof meets the soffit. They gain access through the 2 inch gap in the L shaped cap side where the two walls meet at the roof. I am able to hear the birds in the roof just above my master bedroom when the house is quiet. I need a quote for removal of nest and sealing off the access.

There is a section of our home where the attic and roof connect. For the past 2 years in the spring/summer birds have taken up residence in the small space. As far as we can tell we are unable to reach it from inside the attic and it is out of our reach from the outside and is in a very small slit/hole in the side. We are also unsure of what kind of birds they are.
