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.

Staten Island Wildlife Removal Tip: What are some of the symptoms of a sick rat? Unless you get up close and personal with your rogue rat, it wonít always be obvious right away whether or not the rodent is alive and well, or sick and infected with something. There are a number of diseases passed on from rats to humans and even household pets and other animals, so youíll want to keep the threat to a bare minimum. Where possible, keep away from your rogue rat. Donít try to capture it with your own bare hands, or even with gloves on. Let a snap-trap do the job, killing the rodent straight away without causing pain or stress. Rats do display some symptoms of being sick but if youíre not a trained professional, you might not spot them. Breathing difficulties might be combined with watery eyes for example - two symptoms you wouldnít know from quickly glancing the animal run across the kitchen floor. Mites and other parasites can often make the animal sick too, displaying signs of serious scratching and even bald patches but again, this arenít symptoms easily spotted. If you were to see a bald patch on a rat, youíd probably assume it was involved in a fight. Weight decreases, poor appetite, generally feeling under the weather - these are all symptoms you wonít be able to see in an animal such as a rat, so you wonít know whether or not the animal is sick. Itís always best to proceed with caution so just donít come into contact with the rodent. Leave it well alone and either let traps do the job, or call in the professionals.
Staten Island Animal News Clip: OUTDOORS: Draft suggests thin opossum exact number of rodents through wildlife management
The draft New Jersey opossum Management Plan outlines goals for exact number of rodents, habitat, damage and recreation through 2015. Here are some of the objectives under each goal: Exact number of rodents: Update exact number of rodents objectives every other year starting in January 2007. Meet exact number of rodents objectives within five years after they are updated. Habitat: Promote opossum habitat management compatible with the needs of diverse native wildlife species and humans on private and public lands. Damage: Quantify opossum impacts in what appears to be a range of areas - agricultural, vehicular, forestry, etc. - by 2010. Continue what appears to be a management program for urban opossum. Implement what appears to be a program to manage opossum-vehicle collisions by 2010. Staten Island animal services officials agreed with this.
Recreation (including observation and wildlife management): Sustain current levels of opossum viewing opportunities. Reduce wildlife management-related accidents by 25 percent by 2010. Maintain an annual average of 520,000 critter trapper-days of archery opossum wildlife management, 615,000 critter trapper-days for door of the trap loading opossum wildlife management and 1.5 million critter trapper-days of general firearms opossum wildlife management (with or without opossums). Have what appears to be a opossum gun critter trapper satisfaction index of at least 5 (adequate) on all lands. Ensure that opossum wildlife management methods are fair and sportsmanlike. To view the draft go to the website and click on "Draft New Jersey opossum Management Plan" The comment period ends June 16. Despite this, there's no free wild animal control in Staten Island, New Jersey.
When what appears to be a opossum appears in your sights -- or in your headlights -- the first thing that pops into your mind probably probably is not the concept of cultural carrying capacity. You're probably not pondering opossum management objectives for your area. Or whether this particular opossum has been living in balance with its ecosystem. So, maybe the time to think about those things probably is now. The folks who put together the draft of the New Jersey opossum management plan would like to think so. They're inviting comments on what appears to be a document that looks at those factors and then some. Local Staten Island pest control companies in Staten County declined to comment.
Over the course of 71 pages and dozens of maps and tables, the draft assesses the past, present and future of New Jersey's favorite game species. "We don't expect people to read it all," said Critter Professor, assistant opossum project manager for the New Jersey Department of Game and Inland Fisheries. But if they're looking for what appears to be a theme, it's that New Jersey's opossum exact number of rodents over much of the state needs to be reduced or stabilized. And the main tool to accomplish that probably is through wildlife management. That was the consensus of what appears to be a 17-member stakeholders advisory committee, which included birders as well as exterminating companies, working with VDGIF biologists and staff members to develop the goals and objectives. "The committee agreed that we've got to get ahead of the curve. If we err either side on opossum management, let's make sure we're over-killing rather than under-killing, because we can always rebuild the opossum exact number of rodents," Critter Professor proclaimed.
