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.

We do not handle dog or cat problems. If you need assistance with a domestic animal, such as a dog or a cat, you need to call your local Salem county animal services for assistance. They can help you out with issues such as stray dogs, stray cats, spay & neuter programs, vaccinations, licenses, pet adoption, bite reports, deceased pets, lost pets, local animal complaints and to report neglected or abused animals. There is no free Salem animal control for wildlife issues.

Salem 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.

Salem Animal News Clip: Snake repellent

Are you one of the many people who are ophidiophobic? This term actually refers to the scientific name for the uncontrollable fear of snakes and the person exposed to such animals might have some unpleasant reaction which can primarily result to hyperventilation or sometimes can cause minor or major accidents as a byproduct of their instant compulsion to get away from the source of their most dreaded creature.

But basically almost all people are not fond of snakes except for a very few who have an extreme liking for them. The way that they look and the way they behave most often elicit a different sense of danger and fear from onlookers. With this in mind, many people take the effort in making their homes a safe place for every member of their family free from the presence of these scaly slithering reptiles.

There are not much snake repellents known but there are a few easy to purchase sprays and granules that you can find in the market. They might have proven effective because the concentration of chemicals present is also high but these might as well pose danger to you and all your pets and livestock if you have any in your property.

Perhaps the most effective way to get rid of them is to prevent them from entering your property especially your house. As what you might have always heard prevention is always better than cure and to prevent them from getting in, you should make sure that all the things around you are neat and clean. You can start by making sure that you have trimmed all the bushes and shrubs off the ground to elude them of a place to hide. You can also monitor mowing the grasses and find a proper place to pile up your composts if you have them. Try to keep woodpiles in a place a little distant to your homes because this is where snakes mostly like to hide and dwell.

One other way to prevent them is by eliminating all food sources that might attract these reptiles such as rodents and little pests that dwell in your property and what you can do is simply to maintain cleanliness in your surroundings to keep them at bay. If you are still having problem despite your preventive measures then it is time to take some action and try to eradicate them.

Here is some stuff that you might want to try. First is the use of moth balls or naphthalene flakes, some say that these are effective as it acts like a toxin. The only negative thing about using them is the fact that they are also harmful to both humans and pets. But with proper precautionary measures, you could perhaps spread them around your property. The second one is the use powdered or liquid sulphur. Again, you must exercise caution in the use of such chemicals especially around children and pets.

Snakes have what you call the Jacobson's organ which helps them heighten their senses. Since this is one of their strengths in looking for possible preys and homes you can also make use of this as a primary weapon that could guide you in looking for their weaknesses. As they say, snakes are repelled by very strong odors so you can always make use of a predator's urine to scare them away. Another option is with the use of cinnamon that also repulses their sense of smell and could cause them to run away. You can even make use of hot sauce, just spread them around your place and it might just give off a very strong spicy odor that can repel these reptiles.
