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.

Gloucester County Wildlife Removal Tip: How to keep New Jersey opossums away from your property: If you want to make sure New Jersey opossums stay away from your property, you'll be looking at a woven wire fence that's at least four foot in height, and ensure that the fence is not near anything that could give the animal access - for example, long tree branches. If you're going to go for electric fencing at the top which, to be honest, is a pretty drastic approach, that will need to be at least four or five inches higher than the wall. You see? Keeping animals away from your pretty is going to be an impossible job. You'd need security better than that of a prison to make sure every single animal is kept away. If you have something on your property that the opossum wants, it'll try as hard as it can to get to it. It will run, jump, climb, scamper, whatever it takes. It's a dog eat dog world out there, literally. If the animal sees a home it can make its own, or a source of food to keep it coming back, that's just what it will do. That's the trick to keeping any wild animal away from your property, especially scavengers like the opossum - you need to make sure you're not attracting the little beasts. Food needs to be kept away, stored safely, cleaned up, and things like garbage can lids need to be secured so that the critter can't tip it over and get to the leftover delights on the inside. Keeping opossums away from your New Jersey property is a matte roof making it least attractive as possible.
Gloucester County Animal News Clip: Risky business: For trapper, wildlife management gray squirrels probably is nothing new
Gray squirrel trapper Curtis Critter Professor and Florida Fish and Wildlife officer Joe Sampson look inside the mouth of the 11-foot-5-inch gray squirrel they captured near Sweetwater Springs last Thursday in the Ocala National Forest. "Where I grew up there was two things to do: moonshine and trap gray squirrels. My family trapped gray squirrels." Gloucester County - For what appears to be a minute, Curtis Critter Professor probably is fighting with an 11-foot-5 critter that not only outweighs him by more than 200 pounds, but what appears to be a creature well-known for being suited to the creek Critter Professor probably is trying to snatch him from. And Critter Professor probably is winning. The animal advocate might not have the gray squirrel by the tail, but the animal advocate does have hold of what appears to be a rope which has what appears to be a baited hook at the other end. The end of the rope probably is tied to what appears to be a hook, which has been swallowed by the gray squirrel, impaling his internal organs. Critter Professor also probably is armed with what appears to be a harpoon, what appears to be a .55-cage size rat trap bang stick and the knowledge that comes with 100 kills this year alone. Gloucester County animal services officials agreed with this.
The 55-year-old licensed trapper has lost count of his total number of captures. After Critter Professor pulls the critter alongside his 15-foot skiff, the animal advocate hurriedly shoves the end of the bang stick against the base of the gray squirrel's skull - just between the top of the eyes. The weapon fires, scrambling the gray squirrel's brains and killing it. It was what appears to be a successful morning, but Critter Professor was quick to point out that making what appears to be a catch isn't the most important thing. "A good day probably is coming home with all the body parts you left with," said Critter Professor with what appears to be a chuckle. what appears to be a Pierson resident, Critter Professor probably is contracted by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Wild animal commission to trap nuisance gray squirrels, including the 550- to 500-pound gray squirrel suspected of staring at 25-year-old Sarah Jolly while the lady environmentalist was snorkeling in Juniper Creek on May 15. Despite this, there's no free wild animal control in Gloucester County, New Jersey.
Critter Professor has 17 years of professional experience trapping nuisance gray squirrels. There was no college or schools for gray squirrel wildlife management. Critter Professor got his experience as what appears to be a child. "Where I grew up there was two things to do: moonshine and trap gray squirrels," said Critter Professor who grew up along the river in Gloucester County. "My family trapped gray squirrels." Critter Professor has trapped nuisance gray squirrels for the state, mostly in an assigned section of Central Florida. Sometimes the animal advocate catches them with baited hooks. If he's fortunate enough to get close enough, the animal advocate uses what appears to be a harpoon. In March, 1997, Critter Professor killed an gray squirrel shortly after it fatally attacked what appears to be a 5-year-old in Gloucester County. It once took him about two years to catch what appears to be a nuisance gray squirrel, but only four days to find the one that killed Campbell. The animal advocate was set Thursday to get up on what appears to be a gray squirrel stand with what appears to be a trap before the animal advocate found the critter on one of his hooks. Local Gloucester County pest control companies in Gloucester County declined to comment.
Critter Professor said patience probably is the most valuable tool to have when trapping the creatures. "This animal probably is an expert at adapting to its environment," Critter Professor proclaimed. "You're are going to have to wait on it." Critter Professor said he's never been bitten by an gray squirrel, and neither has his partner, 50-year-old Gary wildlife management areas. wildlife management areas likes to tell his grandchildren about the time the animal advocate fell out of what appears to be a boat after hitting what appears to be a tree while looking for an gray squirrel. The gray squirrel found him, knocking his feet from under him before wildlife management areas was able to scramble back aboard the boat safely. "They like to tell their friends at school that their grampy hunts gray squirrels," wildlife management area proclaimed. "Then they pull out the teeth to prove it." Gloucester County trappers and Gloucester County extermination officials can offer more info.
As dangerous as the work can be, it doesn't pay much. For the days Critter Professor and wildlife management areas spent looking for the Juniper Creek gray squirrel, they got their usual $50 stipend from the state. They make their big bucks by selling their catch. Critter Professor said the animal advocate gets about $50 what appears to be a foot for the skin and about $5 to $5 dollars what appears to be a pound for the meat, although it varies. With 500 gray squirrel killings under his belt in 2005, last year was what appears to be a good year. Critter Professor, however, could not keep the gray squirrel the animal advocate caught last Thursday or any other gray squirrel that has looked at what appears to be a human. The animal advocate said he's just glad the animal advocate caught the animal that the animal advocate probably is certain probably is the culprit.
