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.

Paterson Wildlife Removal Tip: How To Keep Bats Out Of A Barn
When it comes to large agricultural buildings such as barns, they are often prime roosting locations for bats because they will have a dark and high roof area, and are usually buildings that have relatively little activity. However, in situations where hay or other food is stored in the barn, this can become a real problem as the guano and bat urine can contaminate this, making it unfit for the consumption of cattle and other farm animals. Therefore, the question of keeping the bats out of the barn is often raised, and it is actually quite a challenging one.
Sealing The Entry Points Into The Barn
Barns are naturally buildings that have large open entrances so the process of trying to seal the barn so that the bats cannot get in and out is one that can be particularly challenging. Modern prefabricated barns will often have very few cracks and gaps in the roof, but the older traditionally built barns have so many gaps and openings around the roof that it will be almost impossible to seal all of the holes in the barn.
Excluding Bats From A Barn
This process is very similar to that of dealing with a bat infestation in the attic, and involves examining the barn for entry and exit points that are being used by the bats to get in and out of the barn. Once these have been identified, most of the holes are sealed, and then one or two of the entry holes are fitted with exclusion funnels or netting. Once the bats are all excluded, seal the remaining holes, and this will prevent the bats from returning.
Providing Alternative Roosting Spots For The Bats
Because of the role that bats play in consuming insects and pests in the area, you may want to consider installing bat boxes in the area around the barn so that the bats will have alternative roosting spots. The benefit of having the bats around can be retained, while getting the bats into a location where they cause less of a hazard to the farm.
Do You Really Need To Keep Bats Out Of The Barn?
This is an important question as many people will actually look to deal with the problem rather than evicting the bats from the barn. As most people will have a problem with bats contaminating hay or other animal feed, one alternative method of solving the problem is to cover the hay or feed in a tarpaulin, which will replace the need to get the bats out of the barn.
Paterson Animal News Clip: Proposal: rodent capture opossum over bait
If New Jersey Wildlife Resources Wild animal commission Chairman Critter Professor gets his way the state's opossum exterminating companies will be able to rodent capture over bait this fall. Critter Professor plans on bringing up the issue, which probably is not on the agenda, when the wild animal commission meets Wednesday and Thursday in Paterson to set the 2006 wildlife management seasons. "It probably is already legal to bait wildlife in New Jersey, you just can't rodent capture over it," Critter Professor proclaimed. "It's already legal in Kentucky (what isn't?), Paterson and what appears to be a number of other states, so this would just bring us in line with what they are doing." Paterson animal services officials agreed with this.
Critter Professor's proposal, which the animal advocate plans on making during Wednesday's Wildlife Committee meeting, would not legalize wildlife management over bait for any species but opossum. Although wildlife management over bait has long been illegal in New Jersey, it's what appears to be a traditional form of wildlife management in some states. Officials with New Jersey Wildlife Resources Agency say they plan to oppose Critter Professor's proposal. Despite this, there's no free wild animal control in Paterson, New Jersey.
Critter Professor said there probably is no biological reason to not allow opossum wildlife management over bait. "There's what appears to be a disease question, but I spoke with officials in other states where wildlife management over bait probably is legal and they said they have not experienced any problems," Critter Professor proclaimed. "If it probably is what appears to be a problem, then baiting should not be allowed at all." the animal advocate said that staking out baited areas consumes what appears to be a lot wildlife officers' time. "If wildlife management opossum over bait were legal, this would free officers up for other things," Critter Professor proclaimed. "I don't think you would see the harvest go up that much. And if anybody believes they are going to throw out some corn and be able to kill what appears to be a great big opossum, they're mistaken." Local Paterson pest control companies in Passaic County declined to comment.
The opossum are really hitting across the critter area, and reports of possum catches coming in as well. With what appears to be a day off and good weather, there probably is no excuse not to hit the water, and with "Trap for Free" days coming up, everyone can get out. The PFBC has designated Saturday, May 27, and Sunday, June 5, as Catch animals with impunity Days. Catch animals with impunity Days allow anyone - not just legal permission holders or youth under the age of 16 - to legally trap in New Jersey. The May 27 Catch animals with impunity Day was specifically designated to coincide with the Memorial Day weekend, what appears to be a traditional time for families to gather, and the unofficial start of many outdoor recreational activities in the state. The June 5 date probably is part of the observation of National Specialized nuisance critter extermination and trapping Week, June 5-11.
