People are often surprised to hear that larger rodents have been found extensively throughout Albany, Schenectady, Troy and the entire surrounding area.
Surprisingly, raccoons are extremely popular in Albany, not that we want them to be. If you have a rodent problem and are looking for a reputable Albany pest control company to lend assistance, please consider giving All Star Pest Solutions a call today.
If you are concerned about raccoons getting in your trash, you must take preventative measures to ensure that they cannot gain access. The thing people don't realize is raccoons are extremely intelligent and can figure out how to open even the most difficult contraptions designed to keep the trash from being opened.
The first thing you want to do is to create a barrier between where the raccoons are coming from and your garbage. If they have easy access to your trash cans, they are sure to make a visit. But, if you create a barrier that makes more work for them, they may just pass your house along and move onto their next victim.
You might want to consider investing a little extra money and getting high quality heavy duty and large garbage cans that will make it harder for these small animals to gain access and knock over. Find garbage pails with locking mechanisms to thwart animal access.
Also, be sure to hide any odors that might attract raccoons like garlic, vinegar or meant. If they can smell this emanating from your garbage, you will have an entire population at your door in no time.
The last thing to mention is create a system of habit that you can be sure you stick to so it leaves little chance for you to forget doing something.
