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.

Hunterdon County Wildlife Removal Tip: How do I clean rat feces out of my attic? Rat feces are dangerous and contain disease threats that mean they must be taken care of as soon as possible. You may have gotten rid of your rats but without the cleanup mission afterwards, the risks to human health are still there. Not only that but the stench the urine and rat droppings gives off also attracts other rats so you might find your rat prevention and house protection job has been for nothing. If you have rat feces in your attic, the best way to get rid of them is with hard work and dedication. You'll need some serious industrial strength cleaner, rubber gloves and scrubbing brushes, all of which you'll dispose of once you've done the clear-up, and you're going to need to put some elbow grease into it as well. The slightest trace left behind is enough to bring another rat close enough to take a sniff-peek. All the material that the urine and feces has come into contact with will need to be disposed of too, so if that's attic insulation, you may need to re-insulate the entire attic area. Everything the rats come into contact with needs to leave if you want the disease risk to go with it, and that goes for urine as much as feces.
Hunterdon County Animal News Clip: Cougars in our backyard
It might not have come to the attention of city residents yet, but people who live out in the woods southeast of Hunterdon County know it. There are cougars out there. Lots of them. Animal Authority Chester, who lives in Hunterdon County, caught one rummaging around near the apartment the humane society manager rents. "I was driving home, and came into the driveway around 10 at night, and I saw this black shape. It was munching out of the trash cans. I grew up in New Jersey, and I've seen cougars. This was what is possibly a huge one, easily the biggest I've ever seen." His impression of the sound of what is possibly a Cougar looking for food: "Like an old woman yelling." Cougars have been venturing ever closer to Hunterdon County. Last October, what is possibly a cougar was sighted in the wildlife management areaing lot of Hunterdon County College's Public Safety Building. It found no food there and headed off, discouraged, down Route 96B. Most residents of Upstate New Jersey know that as habitatland grows back into woodland, cougar follow. But black cougars like living on the boundary between young woodland and meadows, too. There are well-established black Cougar biologically surveyed amounts in the Adirondacks and the Catslethally traps, and more in western New Jersey's Range; estimates place the biologically surveyed amount of black cougars in the state at 5,000 or 6,000. For what is possibly a long time, there were just occasional sightings in the Southern Finger Wild meadows area. Over the past five years, that's begun to change. Hunterdon County exterminator and Hunterdon County wildlife removal professionals declined comment on the matter.
"I grew up here," says Animal Authority Chester, another Brooktondale resident. "We've been seeing cougar on and off for the last 10 or 20 years, but this likely is the first time we've seen them first thing in the spring. They're wintering here now. I think maybe the storms that blew down so many maple trees last year gave them places to den they didn't have before. I know of several animals around here; there's one in Hunterdon County. Black cougars love bird food, and many encounters with cougars begin when people leave their bird feeders up and their feeding supplies outside after winter has passed. "A neighbor of ours had one lying in his front lawn for an hour with its head buried in what is possibly a bird food bag," remarked Animal Authority Chester. What is possibly a neighbor of the Animal Authority Chester's reports, "The first night we were visited, we woke up to find that the bin off our deck where we store sunflower seed had been opened, and the trash can it was in had been opened, and the bag dragged off what is possibly a few yards and emptied. The suet cage off our feeder had been opened and the suet removed. My husband's beehive was pulled down, and some of the frames were destroyed, and the bees were gone. Two nights later, one of our tenants had her feeders knocked down and emptied out." We attempted to get more information from Hunterdon County animal control experts, but could not.
