Preventing the Bats from Reentering the Home in Somerville, NJ

Now that we successfully and safely removed all the bats from this home in Somerville, NJ, we're going to prevent them from getting back in! The bats were able to infest the property due to the fact that the fascia was badly damaged and falling apart. To fix this, we removed the damaged wooden fascia and replaced it with sturdy metal flashing. The bats, as well as squirrels, raccoons, and birds, will be unable to enter the home through this area and the property will be properly excluded from all nuisance wildlife.

While servicing on one of Cowleys commercial accounts in Somerville, NJ, I noticed that some of the floor drains were quite dirty with accumulated organic matter on the walls of the drains. This “gunk” can easily become a breeding ground for fruit flies, drain flies, and other small gnats. 

To treat these potential breeding areas, we use a bio-foam, a bioenzymatic cleaner that continuously breaks down the decaying organic matter, removing a choice breeding habitat for these pests. I applied this product generously to the basket, pipes, and anywhere else that build-up was evident. Going forward, I recommended a stringent cleaning program to prevent this from re-occurring. Often, especially with restaurants, the source of the pest problem is hidden food debris, whether behind appliances or inside drains. A commercial kitchen may superficially look spotless, but once you start doing some digging, you realize that there are many food sources allowing these pests to survive and thrive. Instituting and enforcing sanitation and hygiene protocols can make all the difference.

Recently, I was sent out on a service call to one of the condominium complexes we service in Somerville, NJ for a mice problem. When I arrived, I inspected the interior of the home and found mice droppings in the laundry room and office. I then inspected the exterior of the unit and, within minutes, I was able to find the entry point! There was a giant gap where the utility wires were leading into the home. 

I carefully cleaned up all the droppings inside the home, stuffed all the openings with chew-proof stainless steel mesh, and then sealed them in place with a premium, waterproof adhesive. Lastly, I placed several Ready-to-Use rodent bait stations throughout the interior and along the exterior of the building. I'll return for several follow-up visits to monitor the rodent infestation and replenish the bait stations as needed.

Job Stories From Somerville, NJ
Opossum Eating the Dog Food in Somerville, NJ

This homeowner in Somerville, NJ, was in his garage, organizing his holiday lights one day, when he noticed an opossum walk right into his garage and began eating his pets food! He quietly went inside and contacted Little Rascals for help! Opossums are a medium sized mammal that usually range in weight from four to six pounds. They're omnivores & are known to eat vertebrates (mice and rats especially), invertebrates, carrion (dead animals), plants, fruits, grains, and human garbage. Opossums are drawn to places that have both food and water, which is why leaving food and water out for an outdoor pet will often attract opossums at any time of the year!

Once we arrived, we spotted the opossum snacking on the pet food that was placed in the garage. We carefully and successfully retrieved it and relocated the opossum to a new, humane environment. Before we left, we advised the owner to clean up the spilled food, no longer keep the pet food in the garage, and to remove the pet food once his cat is done eating. Doing this few simple tricks will prevent opossums, and other nuisance wildlife, from infesting his home.

Found a Mice Entry Point in Somerville, NJ

As we were servicing this property in Somerville, NJ we found an opening made by mice on the side of the foundation. How did we know it was mice? We found their droppings around the hole and found their hair inside it. Mice infesting your home is never a good thing as they are known to carry many diseases. These diseases can then spread to people through directly handling their feces or breathing it through the air!

We brought this to the homeowners attention and he mentioned that he will contact a foundation repair specialist to repair the hole. In the meantime, we carefully vacuumed up the droppings and installed several rodent bait stations near the hole and around the perimeter of the home. We will return for several follow-up visits to replenish the bait stations and monitor the infestation.
