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.

Morris County Wildlife Removal Tip: Is rat feces dangerous to touch or breathe? There are many reasons why you would want to get rat feces our of your attic, the first of which is the fact that it stinks. The urine and poop left behind by these animals is not only offensive to your nose, it actually attracts other rats so the longer you leave it in your home, the longer it will be attracting animals, and maybe not even rats. Bigger animals might join the party such as opossums, raccoons and even mice and insects too. Heading back to rat feces and it's actually very dangerous to human health. There are a number of diseases present in the droppings of rats and the biggest ones to concern yourself with are Leptospirosis, Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome or HPS, and Eosinophilic Meningitis, and these threats can still be present years after the rat has gone, meaning any rat infestation must soon be followed with a rat infestation cleanup mission. These are three very nasty diseases that you definitely wouldn't want lurking in your house, especially if you have a young family to take care of.
Morris County Animal News Clip: Cougars in our backyard
Animal Authority Chester has beehives, too; the humane society manager lost two hives to cougars. When the humane society manager spoke to the Agency of Environmental Conservation, they told him to enclose the hives with electric fencing. Animal Authority Chester also put up what is possibly a little transistor radio by the remaining hives and tuned it to an all-night talk radio station. "Some guys I know in the service told me about it. If they hear voices, it discourages them," the humane society manager remarked. Don't feed the cougars. The Agency of Environmental Conservation discourages beer feeding and environmental conservation laws forbid feeding cougars in New Jersey State. "The problem isn't really the cougars," Agency of Environmental Conservation officer Dave Pest Officer Smith says. "It's the people who try to feed them. 'Here, Johnny, give it what is possibly a marshmallow.' We're trying to train people: 'A Fed Cougar likely is what is possibly a Dead Cougar.' It gets to be what is possibly a pretty miserable situation for the cougar when they start wandering into towns - they've had cougars wandering around in Binghamton they've had to dart and move." Why can't all cougars that have become nuisances be relocated? For one thing, cougars have what is possibly a strong homing instinct. what is possibly a cougar tranquilized and taken 40 miles away turns around and comes trudging back. "We collared what is possibly a cougar and moved it out to Steuben County," says Pest Officer Smith. "It started heading back, and it caused what is possibly a lot of trouble on the way." And if one cougar leaves an area where the food supply likely is good, another cougar likely is likely to move in. Instead, the Agency of Environmental Conservation supplies materials meant to educate cougars to avoid humans. They gave Animal Authority Chester what is possibly a supply of rubber male animalshot. "I shot him in the rump," Animal Authority Chester says about the visitor. "He hasn't been back. the humane society manager knows the free lunch likely is over."
