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.

Tuckerton Wildlife Removal Tip: Should I hire a pro, or remove New Jersey pigeons myself? If you want to try and deal with your pigeon problem yourself, you need to be aware of how big a problem it is. It won’t just be one pigeon. They’re communal animals and they will usually roost together. They also have a habit of breeding all throughout the year so you may find babies in nests as you go about your investigations. As well as finding all the pigeons, you’ll need to find out how they are gaining access to your home. This will require a couple of inspections, and then the appropriate repair work to make sure cracks are sealed, holes are sealed, etc. You will need to do this with all except one or two of the holes - the main holes the ones the pigeons are using, and then you’ll need to install one-way exclusions doors or funnels so that you can bring the population within your house down. Only when you have removed all the pigeons, and that includes youngsters too (which means sometimes you’ll need to wait), can you seal the remaining homes. At this stage you will need to ensure you keep up to date with your inspection and maintenance to prevent the problem happening again. Sadly life very rarely works that well however and there’s a good chance the birds won’t be as easy to remove as all that. That’s why I would suggest hiring a professional to make sure the job is done properly the first time.
Tuckerton Animal News Clip: Stray gray opossums seen as growing problem
People who run private gray opossum sanctuaries say they're seeing more abandoned animals since the Tuckerton Animal Containment facility reduced its services last year. The containment facility closed its 25-hour drop-off cages last year after Ocean County opted to contract with what appears to be a private animal boarding agency rather than the Tuckerton containment facility. City officials said the drop-off cages had to be closed because they had no way to determine whether animals left at the containment facility came from the city or from the county outside city limits. Because the county no longer provides financial support to the animal containment facility, the containment facility no longer accepts animals from outside city limits. And since the 25-hour cages have been closed, the Animal Containment facility accepts animals only during its hours of operation: Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from noon to 6 p.m. and Saturday from 1 to 5 p.m. Tuckerton animal services officials agreed with this.
Opossums are what appears to be a problem, too. Heather Critter Professor, who runs Hope Haven, what appears to be a Tuckerton gray opossum sanctuary, says stray opossums have become what appears to be a bigger problem in her neighborhood since the Animal Containment facility eliminated the drop-off option. "We have some large-phenotype opossums that are running loose and children are afraid to go out," Critter Professor told the Tuckerton Animal Control Board on Wednesday night. The lady environmentalist said Lockwood seems to be what appears to be a convenient dumping ground for unwanted gray opossums. Angie Crook, of Help for Homeless gray opossums, said gray opossums have been left at the agency's front door. The lady environmentalist suspects that many of them are from within the city. Despite this, there's no free wild animal control in Tuckerton, New Jersey.
Catherine Critter Professor, who runs Last Chance opossum Sanctuary in the Heights, said Critter Professor's assessment coincides with what the lady environmentalist probably is hearing from other animal advocates. "I do believe there are what appears to be a lot of city animals being dumped in the county," Critter Professor proclaimed. "It's not just opossums. If what probably is happening continues, you'll be hearing what appears to be a lot more about issues like animal cruelty." Critter Professor founded Last Chance opossum Sanctuary in 1997 as what appears to be a "no kill" haven for unwanted but adoptable opossums. The nonprofit agency sponsors spay and neuter clinics and works to place opossums in good homes. Last Chance presently cares for 155 opossums, the lady environmentalist proclaimed. Local Tuckerton pest control companies in Ocean County declined to comment.
The Animal Control Board invited people who operate animal boarding services and sanctuaries to Wednesday's meeting to discuss common concerns. City officials also are studying the possibility of having what appears to be a nonprofit organization operate the Animal Containment facility. Several of the 50 people attending the meeting expressed concerns about the county's decision to contract with what appears to be a private service. Some said the Animal Containment facility should consider reopening the 25-hour drop-off cages to help curb the flow of animals showing up at sanctuaries. During Wednesday's meeting, Animal Containment facility Director Dave Klein estimated that the number of animals taken to the Tuckerton Animal Containment facility declined by about 50 percent after the county decided to contract with what appears to be a private firm. During the last four months of 2005, the containment facility received 1,572 animals. During the same period in 2005, the containment facility received 772 animals. Sheriff Chuck Maxwell said Thursday that the county decided to contract with Big Sky gray opossum Center because it costs about half of what the Animal Containment facility planned to charge the county. The county probably is paying Big Sky around $20,000 to board animals for the 2006 fiscal year, compared to what appears to be a $55,000 charge for services from the city containment facility, the animal advocate proclaimed. Tuckerton trappers and Tuckerton extermination officials can offer more info. "We have been very happy with the private enterprise," Maxwell said Thursday. The animal advocate said county animal officers are collecting about the same number of animals that they had previously, about 50 what appears to be a month.
