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 Essex 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 West Orange animal control for wildlife issues.

Wildlife control operator is a term for a professional and experienced trapper who has completed the requisite training and obtained certification of various levels. If you are already a certified professional then you must be thinking how can you get a job, where to apply and how to pursue this as a career? But if you are planning to obtain certification then few queries could be baffling your mind. Where can I obtain training? What is the ideal level of certification? What is better- to begin your own company or to work for someone else? This post will help in addressing most of these queries.


To get a job as wildlife control operator, the prerequisite is to undergo training of designated hours and obtain certain level of certification. If you have the desired level of recognition, then you can apply for job in this area.

This training of designated hours is not something which any institution will provide. If you have passion and interest in this field and you want to rescue animals and land them in safe zone, then you need to enrol yourself with certified professionals who are in this filed. You can call it an internship but, in this arena, it is the first step. There are many professional agencies which could enrol you for apprenticeship and then provide you a certificate demonstrating your knowledge and ability to control wildlife species.

If you have this certification from professional agency, then you can just prepare and appear for Trapper education exam offered by various state-owned and private institutions. Once you have passed this exam with the minimum score, you can complete the certification course in the curriculum (some theoretical knowledge) and you are good to apply for jobs!

Starting your own business VS getting a job

People often ask if they should start something on their own or get job with professional agencies. If you decide to start your own business, then you would have to invest your time in advertising it hard and you should be confident enough to handle each use case. This could be challenging especially if you have only completed the apprenticeship and never been out on the field as the owner. Hence, it is recommended to get a job for yourself. You can also speak to the agency from where you did the apprenticeship beforehand if they have any openings. If they do, then you can inform them of your completion of exam and course and they can offer you a full-time job!

Professional advice

Your apprenticeship plays a very important role in your career. It is the base which help you in entering this field. So, at first you need to choose your trainers carefully. Secondly, you should make yourself stand out from the crowd by leveraging information available in tonnes of reference documents online. There are books and videos which are sold at nominal rates which can help you in learning techniques of trapping various wildlife animals carefully. This can prove to be an added advantage in your practical life.
