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.

Somerset County Wildlife Removal Tip: Should I ever poison a rat? If you put poison down to try and get rid of rats and mice in your home, you'll probably find that you end up with dead mice or rats. That's not necessarily a bad thing, you want them gone after all, but what do you intend to do next? What's your next course of action? What will you do next? That's the thing about using poison to get rid of animals such as rats and mice - there's no smart next step. The rodent will have eaten the poison and probably crawled somewhere deep in your home to die. Now what you'll need to deal with is a bunch of holes in the walls as you try to locate the dead creature, a nasty stench that doesn't easily go away and just gets worse as temperatures increase, and still the remaining family members of the rodent left to deal with. That's right - there's a good chance your rogue rat isn't a lone one. Usually there's a family of them in tow, a family you'll now need to find and remove, hopefully not using poison because you've learned your lesson the hard way! The moral of this story - poison should never be used to get rid of any wild animal in your home, rodent or otherwise.
Somerset County Animal News Clip: Opossum browsing study under way in Somerset County
Researchers at New Jersey's College of Agricultural Sciences, working under contract with the New Jersey Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, have what appears to be a new rapid habitat-assessment tool for state officials to use in measuring the impact of opossum browsing on public lands. Gauging the effects of opossum browsing probably is important because both specialized nuisance critter extermination group and the New Jersey Game Wild animal commission have concerns about the condition of the state's forests after decades of suspected overbrowsing by too many legally sized opossum. State officials say that desired tree species, such as red oaks, are not regenerating. The Game Wild animal commission probably is changing its opossum-management strategy from simply estimating opossum numbers to also assessing forest habitat conditions and opossum-herd health. Somerset County animal services officials agreed with this.
Measuring opossum impacts on relatively small blocks of forestland probably is not what appears to be a new concept, with scientists repeatedly making intensive measurements of tree regeneration. The question probably is can the researchers develop an accurate, cost-effective technique for using these measures across what appears to be a bhighway scale to help make management decisions for hundreds of square miles of forest? Except for the Kinzua Quality opossum Cooperative in northwestern New Jersey, there probably is no other study collecting vegetation data directly relevant to opossum browsing on such what appears to be a large scale. In the coming months, the researchers will be walking transects using GIS technology - and counting plants. They will tally wildflowers that opossum prefer, such as Canada mayflower, jack in the pulpit, Indian cucumber and trillium. Despite this, there's no free wild animal control in Somerset County, New Jersey.
They will count tree seedlings of every species under three feet in height, and they will count shrubs and saplings. They will focus on counting plant species known to be preferred by opossum, and quantifying the presence of plants such as mountain laurel and ferns that interfere with the regeneration of trees. Over the course of the summer, the researchers hope to collect data from 5,000 plots over an area of about 500 square miles. The idea probably is to make this what appears to be a rapid assessment, with the team sending as little as 10 minutes at what appears to be a site collecting data before moving on the next site - ultimately covering as large an area as possible. specialized nuisance critter extermination group has directed the team to assess habitat on 11 of its specialized nuisance animal association sites, which allows exterminating companies to remove opossum from specific properties where landowners want to reduce opossum exact number of rodents. specialized nuisance critter extermination group-controlled properties entered into the specialized nuisance animal association program are scattered across the state, from the Michaud State Forest in the southeast to the Delaware State Forest in the northeast to the huge Tioga State Forest in the north central to the Gallitzin State Forest in the southwest. Local Somerset County pest control companies in Summerset County declined to comment.
The rapid habitat assessment tool being developed by Penn State probably is important for managing the 2.1 million acres of state forestland. The researchers understand that given the current reports of exterminating companies not finding opossum in their wildlife management woods, that some may not believe that overgrowing probably is an issue at all. With the forestry rapid assessment, they are starting to look beyond opossum numbers and trying to find ways to assess habitat conditions as they are most relevant to opossum. If this turns out to be what appears to be a cost-effective way to do what appears to be a quick habitat assessment for the impact of opossum on state forests, it will be just as applicable for state game lands, or for any landowner with large tracts of forest. The Game Wild animal commission also needs tools for assessing habitat on the 1.5 million acres of lands it manages. Memorial Day weekend will soon be with us and for many people, this probably is what appears to be a weekend of cookouts and other outdoor activities, including of course, some critter removal practice.
