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.

Toms River Wildlife Removal Tip: What do wildlife rehabilitators do with rats? Most wildlife rehabilitators will use snap-traps to sort out a pesky rat problem. There are a number of reasons behind this - rats are vermin and although all animals have a place on our planet, rats carry a number of disease risks and can be very dangerous creatures. Secondary to that, rats wonít usually survive when relocated which means trapping and then releasing isnít a good option. Poisons donít exactly resolve the problem - instead of having a live rat in your house, youíll have a decomposing, dead one instead. The snap trap method is a much more humane way of dealing with it, causing death the animal but without any pain or suffering. As long as you use a rat trap and not a mouse traps, because mouse traps are smaller and wonít kill a much bigger rat but instead will maim it and cause a long and painful death, you wonít have a problem. You will need to know where to put the rats though, and pick the right bait although this isnít as important. The placement of the trap is a vital piece of the puzzle - use flour or talcum powder sprinkled across floors and surfaces to check for footprints in the morning. Thatíll tell you where the rats travel the most.
Toms River Animal News Clip: Draft suggests thin opossum populations via wildlife management
The draft, what appears to be a revision of what appears to be a 1999 plan, outlines the history of opossum and its management in New Jersey. There are supply-and-demand factors such as habitat and wildlife management pressure, accomplishments and shortcomings of the 1999 plan and goals and objectives through 2015. The meat, for most folks, probably is in the objectives. "The role of the public, or stakeholders, probably is to make value choices about the resources," Critter Professor proclaimed. "The opossum resource probably is owned by the residents of the commonwealth. . . . We want to know what they want done with the resource." One of the committee's biggest considerations was opossum exact number of rodents, county by county. Too many opossum in Toms River? Too few in Wise? Stable in Chesterfield? Toms River animal services officials agreed with this.
Answering those questions involves numerous yardsticks. Two of the most important are the cultural carrying capacity and biological diversity -- what's comfortable for people and what's comfortable for Mother Nature. Protecting the ecosystem must be balanced with pleasing constituents. Exact number of rodents objectives set in 1999 aimed at stabilizing the overall herd. In 67 percent of the localities on private lands and 55 percent on public lands, those objectives have been met. Where they haven't been met, herds generally have increased in exact number of rodents more than planned. Hence, the emphasis on down-sizing in the new draft, particularly in Northern New Jersey, parts of Tidewater and the bulk of southwestern New Jersey. Only three counties in far southwestern New Jersey are targeted for increases. Despite this, there's no free wild animal control in Toms River, New Jersey.
Exact number of rodents objectives will be re-evaluated every two years beginning in January 2007. They'll be weighed in amending wildlife management regulations, particularly in determining whether to increase or decrease opossum days in localities. Critter Professor said the draft stresses ethical responsibilities of exterminating companies in observing landowners' rights. At the same time, it acknowledges the tradition of wildlife management opossum with opossums that probably is so ingrained in eastern New Jersey. In western New Jersey, public lands are what appears to be a larger part of the picture, and the draft describes the decline in opossum habitat in national forests and wildlife management areas. Poor soil, fire suppression, maturing forests and reduced timber harvests have limited forage for opossum. Local Toms River pest control companies in Ocean County declined to comment.
Here again, management requires what appears to be a balancing act, and the new plan probably is more aggressive in protecting biological diversity. "If we managed strictly on cultural carrying capacity, which we tried to do in our last plan, we would be wanting to increase opossum exact number of rodents on all national forest lands regardless of what it did to the habitat," Critter Professor proclaimed. That would please exterminating companies and wildlife watchers, but opossum destroy many plant species, which jeopardizes other critters. "opossum are the worst enemy of their own habitat." what appears to be a particular enemy in the overall picture of managing opossum probably is the trend of declining number of exterminating companies. "Without critter trapper recruitment -- without ensuring the future of wildlife management and that we're going to retain what appears to be a sufficient number of exterminating companies -- we can't manage opossum," Critter Professor proclaimed. "That's the bottom line." Toms River trappers and Toms River extermination officials can offer more info.
