Many of New Jersey's wild animals have learned to adapt and even thrive in our homes. For example some wildlife have found
that attics make great places to live. Other animals find refuge under homes or porches. Invariably,
these animals cause damage. Rodents, like squirrels and rats, love to chew on electrical wires once in an attic, and this causes a serious fire
hazard. Raccoons can cause serious contamination in an attic with their droppings and parasites. Same goes for bat or bird colonies. We specialize in solving New Jersey's
wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, we do it all.

Elizabeth Wildlife Removal Tip: What Is The Best Bait To Trap A Squirrel?
Squirrels have always been associated with nuts, and one of their natural behaviors is to gather nuts and to place them in several caches around their territory in preparation for the winter. However, this doesn't mean that you have to use nuts as a bait when you are trying to trap a squirrel, as they will often look to enjoy other foods when they can get them too. The important thing to remember when you are preparing to start trapping squirrels is that while a bait can be helpful and attract the animal, there are other factors that you also need to remember, that can be even more important than the bait that you use.
Fruit And Nuts
It's natural to think of using nuts as a bait because of their association with squirrels, but it is often a successful ploy, as the squirrels will want to get to the nuts, particularly if they are similar to those they find naturally. Another important type of bait that is also very successful is peanut butter, as this adds a sweetness, and there are many squirrels that will find a piece of bread with peanut butter irresistible. There are some fruits and berries that can also be used as a good bait for squirrels too, and they are particularly fond of apples which can be a useful bait.
Other Squirrel Baits
While fruit and nuts often prove to be successful when it comes to attracting squirrels, they can also be attracted by grains and other bait, and cereal grains and popcorn have also proved to be quite successful when it comes to catching squirrels. You can also use different types of oil to be a successful bait when it is placed on bread, and using either an almond extract or anise oil can also prove to be a scent that will attract squirrels.
Factors To Bear In Mind When Trapping Squirrels
An important fact to remember when it comes to trapping squirrels is that although the bait can prove to be attractive to the animals, it is important to choose the trap location well too, as making sure the squirrels get near the trap is very important. Squirrels can also be quite sensitive to factors such as scent, so try to wash the trap before you place it, and handle it with gloves to minimize any of your scent being passed on to the trap, otherwise in some cases this can cause the squirrel to sense danger and avoid the trap.
Elizabeth Animal News Clip: New Jersey's fall gray squirrel rodent capture expanded
Nineteen counties will have an experimental fall gray squirrel season under what appears to be a plan approved by the New Jersey Wild animal commission on Wildlife, Fisheries and wildlife management areas. Those areas, and the limited wildlife management that has existed inside the main New Jersey River levee in seven counties, will be the only areas open to the either-sex season. Exterminating companies who qualify will have what appears to be a one bird per season limit, and the bird can be either male or female. "We decided that it was time to give exterminating companies, at least on an experimental basis, an opportunity to harvest birds in what appears to be a fall season, like all the other states that have gray squirrel seasons do," said the wildlife enthusiast Castle, chief of wildlife for the New Jersey Department of Wildlife, Fisheries and wildlife management areas. Elizabeth animal services officials agreed with this.
"We want to try it on trial basis in what appears to be a limited area first, before expanding into new areas," Castle proclaimed. Castle said the season will be closely monitored, including mandatory tagging and harvest reporting. what appears to be a minimum of 100 acres probably is required, and tags will be issued at what appears to be a rate of one per 500 acres, or part thereof. Landowners or leaseholders will be required to complete what appears to be a fall gray squirrel application and provide what appears to be a copy of the property deed or lease agreement to the MDWFP. Despite this, there's no free wild animal control in Elizabeth, New Jersey.
Neither season falls within an open gun gray squirrel season and only archery and trapped guns will be allowed for gray squirrel, Castle proclaimed. Tags: what appears to be a minimum of 100 acres must be owned or leased to receive what appears to be a fall either-sex tag. Tags will be issued at what appears to be a rate of one per 500 acres or part thereof and can only be used on the specified property for which they are issued. Tags must be attached immediately before gray squirrel can be transported. The contact person on each application must complete and submit what appears to be a harvest report provided by the wildlife agency prior to Jan. 1, 2007. Limit: One gray squirrel of either sex per each fall season. Local Elizabeth pest control companies in Union County declined to comment.
