Now that we successfully and safely retrieved all the skunks that were harboring underneath this homeowners shed and relocated them to a humane environment, we need to make sure that the skunks, and other nuisance wildlife, don't reinfest that area.

To do this, we dug a 12 inch deep trench and then installed hardware cloth. The hardware cloth is installed 12 inches deep and 12 inches out from the bottom of the shed. This creates a sturdy "L shaped" perimeter that will prevent skunks, and other nuisance wildlife, from digging and nesting underneath the shed.

Manahawkin Crawl Space Encapsulation Services

One way that pests can make their way into your home is through your crawl space. An unsealed crawl space also lets in moisture, leading to structural damage and mold and mildew growth. Structural damage results in uneven interior floors, which can become hazardous if not resolved. Mold and mildew growth can lead to increased asthma and allergy symptoms for you and your loved ones. Fortunately, Cowleys Pest Services offers a complete crawl space encapsulation system to keep your crawl space and the rest of your home dry, safe, structurally sound, and healthy.

Our crawl space encapsulation products:

  • Vapor barriers
  • Crawl space access doors

Job Stories From Manahawkin, NJ
Fruit Flies Infest Commercial Kitchen in Manahawkin, NJ

After noticing a large amount of fruit flies infesting his kitchen, the owner of this restaurant in Manahawkin, NJ contacted Cowleys for help exterminating these pests. As we began our inspection, we noticed that there was a large gathering of fruit flys around the bar area. We examined that area and discovered that several of the floor drains near the bar area were loaded with a buildup of discarded food, garbage, sugary liquids, and fruit fly larvae!

We then decided to inspect the other floor drains throughout the restaurant and, low and behold, there was also a buildup of gunk inside them as well as more fruit fly larvae. We showed these sanitation issues to the owner and informed him that these dirty drains were the source of his fruit fly problem. We also mentioned a few simple sanitation protocols to enforce with his staff in order to prevent any future fruit fly infestations as well as other pest infestations. He agreed and he and his staff immediately began cleaning the restaurant.

While they were cleaning, we applied a liquid application in all the floor drains and then scrubbed them out with our heavy-duty scrubbing brush. Next, we applied a bio-foam solution in all the floor drains. This will remove all the organic build-up, odors, and scum in the drains that the fruit flies breed in. Afterward, we treated the high infestation areas with a fly bait to control the adult fruit flies that were flying around and then installed several fruit fly traps. The attractant in the traps draws the fruit flies close and the bait inside the traps exterminates them within moments of contact.

Once all of that was completed, we scheduled several follow-up visits to monitor the fruit fly activity and, if needed, apply any additional treatments.

Safely Removing Skunks from Under the Shed in Manahawkin, NJ

As this homeowner in Manahawkin, NJ, was cleaning out his shed and he noticed a burrow on the side of the shed and a skunk going into the burrow! He immediately went inside, found Little Rascals on Google, and scheduled an appointment. 

As we inspected the area, we noticed that there was a hug gap underneath the entire perimeter of the shed. After setting up our retrieval devices, we successfully and safely retrieved the skunks and relocated them to a new, humane environment. All that's left is to exclude the skunks from the shed! To do this, we dug a 12 inch deep trench around the entire perimeter of the shed and then installed hardware cloth. The hardware cloth is installed 12 inches deep and 12 inches out from the bottom of the shed. This creates a sturdy "L shaped" perimeter that will prevent skunks, and other nuisance wildlife, from digging and nesting underneath the shed.

Squirrels chew dryer vent to get into Manahawkin home

A Manahawkin homeowner was hearing wildlife noises in his attic at daybreak every morning like clockwork. He realized that the problem would not self-resolve and contacted Cowleys to inspect the attic and resolve his wildlife problem. I suspected that squirrels were the likely culprits. There was heavy squirrel activity in this neighborhood and, because they are agile climbers, attics are a favorite spot for them. Also, the timing and nature of  the noises coming from the attic dictated that we were dealing with squirrels. First, squirrels are diurnal animals, active during the day and asleep at night. Raccoons, on the other hand, are primarily nocturnal, although they may venture out during the day (especially females foraging for her litter). With squirrel infestations, many homeowners report hearing wildlife sounds like scampering and scratching early in the morning and at dusk. The scampering sounds of squirrels will be older than those of mice or rats because they are larger rodents. Squirrels also make some surprisingly weird vocal alarm signals.  

I inspected the attic to determine the location of any access points. Often, I’ll find holes in a home’s siding or under the soffits, especially when there is wood rot. With this home, however, the squirrels did not have to do any work at all to gain access to the attic. Form the attic, I could easily see that the dryer vent connection had disconnected, allowing easy access to the attic. 

Ii was time to take care of the infestation. I set live traps along the path that the squirrels were taking, and over the course of a few days, I safely and humanely trapped, removed, and relocated three squirrels from the home. Once I determined that there was no more squirrel activity inside the attic and around the dryer vent, I installed a dryer vent cover to block this potential access point for good.
