If you are having a problem with wildlife in your Bergen County home, your best option is to hire a company that specializes in New Jersey wildlife removal only. This is a specialty business, and regular
pest control companies do not use the proper techniques to solve animal problems. I have spent many years reviewing Bergen County, and I recommend the following:
Cell Phone: 201-328-0537
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Bergen County Animal Services: 201 646-3200
TriState Wildlife specializes primarily in removing animals from attics of homes and buildings - this includes squirrels in attics, raccoons, and rats
or mice in homes. New Jersey also has a documented problem with
bats in buildings, and TriState Wildlife is specially trained in bat removal. They also perform general wildlife trapping services, such as the capture and removal of skunks or opossums on the
property. Call 201-328-0537
to discuss your critter problem and schedule a same-day or next-day appointment.
When hiring a company to solve your wild animal problem, you want these features:
- Specializes in wildlife removal, not pest control
- Fully New Jersey and Bergen County licensed and insured
- Works 7 days per week (critters don't take weekends off)
- Performs full building inspections: enters and inspects attic
- Performs exclusion repairs, with guarantee against animal re-entry
- Offers cleanup of biohazardous wildlife waste
TriState Wildlife is a full-service Bergen County wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Bergen County pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all
similar to wildlife removal. TriState Wildlife performs a full inspection of the home or property, and determines why the animal(s) are there, and if inside a building, how the animals got inside. All
animals (including rodents) are trapped and removed, or if possible, removed from the building using special exclusion devices. Once the animals are gone, preventative repairs are essential, and
cleanup is sometimes recommended.
Bergen County wildlife trapping - it's not as simple as it may seem. It's illegal in New Jersey to trap without a license. Trap type is very important and there are many different types, bait is somewhat relevant, trap placement
is vital, and there are dozens of small things that are very important to know.
Safety is a concern. Then once the animal is trapped, it must be removed and dealt with in the proper manner according to New Jersey law. We offer Bergen County raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
Animals in attics - this is our specialty at TriState Wildlife. Many types of animals like to live in attics. This includes squirrels, raccoons, rats, mice, bats, birds, and even possums. Critters like to go into attics for a safe place to live
and raise their young. Removing animals from attics is very complex work, partly because of the presence of baby animals. If you need Bergen County squirrel removal, we can remove all the squirrels from your attic, and seal out any future ones. Read more about how to get rid of squirrels.
Rodent control must be done in a very specific way. First off, the most important thing is that all the openings that rats and mice can use to enter a house be sealed. Then all the rodents must be physically trapped and removed.
Never, ever use poison! Most Bergen County exterminators will just use this lazy poison technique to kill rodents, and it causes more harm than good - dead stinky rats, and it doesn't solve the problem. Call us for correct Bergen County rat removal. Read more about how to get rid of rats.
Bat removal is a highly specialized task. New Jersey is known to have colonizing bats who often live in buildings. Bats love attics. If not removed, the colony can grow to a very large size over the years. The bat droppings are often corrosive and
cause health risks. The same goes for bird droppings on or in buildings. We perform Bergen County pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Bergen County bat removal. We remove 100% of the bat colony and seal the building so that it's totally bat-proof. Read more about how to get rid of bats.
If you have animals inside a house, no job is complete without proper exclusion repairs. If you simply hire a Bergen County trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Bergen County wildlife control company that identifies 100% of the animal entry points
into your building, and seals them shut with professional repairs. In addition, in many cases animals have left waste or contamination behind, and you'll want a company that can provide professional cleaning services. TriState Wildlife does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by TriState Wildlife. We also trap and remove animals that destroy lawns, such as moles, or digging animals. Sometimes animals like opossums will live under buildings, steal pet food, raid garbage cans, etc.

. Skunks commonly live under sheds or decks, and set up a den. We can trap and remove them without them spraying. Read about how to get rid of skunks
. TriState Wildlife
also provides dead animal removal in Bergen County. If you need help with any other wildlife conflict, from a fox, beaver, groundhog, or any other critter, we can solve it. We also do Bergen County snake removal - most of the snakes in New Jersey are not venomous, but
call us if you want safe removal, or read about how to get rid of snakes
in Bergen County. And remember, we are a private business, not Bergen County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at 201 646-3200.
Bergen County animal services does not handle any wildlife issues.

Bergen County Wildlife Tip #1:
What pest control company handles unwanted nuisance wild animals? - Do you have a problem with a rather pesky unwanted nuisance wild animal? If you do, there is no need to panic, you just need to call the professionals, and in this case, you are going to want to look for a pest control company or a wildlife control expert. Of course, you could always try and catch the critter yourself, but unless you are willing to do your research, there is a good chance that you will not be successful. Thankfully, with a little bit of research, you will find plenty of wildlife control companies and professionals in your area, and all you need to do is have a look around. The phone book may prove to be helpful; as will be the internet, but there will be a few things that you will need to take a look for: Firstly, have a look around the company's website and also on the search engine for reviews of the services they have to offer. A bad review will not always mean a bad service, of course, but if there are a few, it may be wise to look elsewhere. You will find that there is more than one way to skin a cat, as the old saying goes, and you will want to find the right person to deal with your problem in the right manner. Secondly, what does the company actually offer with their services? Some companies will offer a full service which will normally include the trapping and removal of your unwanted nuisance wild animal problem, as well as a cleanup operation to remove urine and feces, as well as blocking all holes and entrances to avoid the problem from being a reoccurring one. Some other companies however, will only offer some of these services, and they may not always be the best choice. Lastly, take a look around for prices - some companies may offer you a good deal, but you may not find that the service will be right for you. At the same time, a more expensive service doesn't always guarantee complete success.
Bergen County Wildlife Tip #2:
What to do when a skunk is in the walls - Having a skunk in the walls means a skunk has found a way inside of your home. This isn't the most common scenario, but if a foundation is damaged enough, it won't take long for a skunk to realize the wall is a warm, dry place to be. The best way to handle this situation, if you don't want to call in a professional, is to trap and remove the animal on your own. This shouldn't be as difficult as it seems; the animal has a direct entry point into your home, so you know where you need to set up your trap. The most common concern for trappers is how to avoid getting sprayed. If you're using a cage trap, you can keep the skunk calm and avoid being sprayed by placing a tarp of a blanket over the top and sides. There are special traps that can be purchased online. These have solid sides and provide the same type of protection as the blanket or tarp. To bait your trap, you can use marshmallows, or, if there are no stray cats around, you can use wet cat food.

In the lovely state of New Jersey you'll find mountains, hardwood forests, pine forests, saltwater beaches and freshwater swamps. There are fields and plots of barren dust. New Jersey is one of the most bio-diverse places in the country. This variety means a fantastic selection of habitats for mammals, reptiles, amphibians, and birds. Over 1000 animal species live in New Jersey, not including humans.
The northwestern part of the state fits into the standard Northeast stereotype. It has hardwood forests and mountains much like Pennsylvania and New York. The northern part of the state is densely populated with people, and many of them make the commute to New York City for work. In this area, because of the habitat, black bears are frequent problem animals, raiding garbage cans at night. Some bears are daily visitors to neighborhood dumpsters and end up as a tourist attraction to distant observers. Coyotes are also found in this part of the state, but the wild canines are not as problematic as are bears in New Jersey.
The southern part of the state has a region known as the Pine Barrens. This landscape is full of thick pine forests and is sparsely populated by people. The Barrens have the usual host of skunks, raccoons, woodchucks, squirrels, and chipmunks, but they are also the home to the county's highest white-tailed deer population. The woods aren't just for the mammals. The Pine Barrens tree frog is a colorful amphibian that makes its home in the trees of New Jersey.
All those little creatures are great dinner ideas for the two largest snakes in the state, the black racer snake and the black rat snake. As you might expect, these large serpents look for rat-sized prey to make up their diets. Black racers and black rat snakes are not venomous. New Jersey only has two venomous snakes, the rattlesnake and the copperhead snake.
Birds are also numerous in the region. Bald eagles are slowly making a comeback, and the warmer weather is ideal for birds like robins, cardinals, sparrows, and geese. In fact, many migratory birds live in New Jersey but never have to migrate because of the mild temperatures. These birds tend to stay inland, leaving the coastal territories to seagulls and other crustacean-eating fowl.
You can always call TriState Wildlife, any time of day, at 201-328-0537, for a price quote for Bergen County wildlife control services. I am confident that this is the best choice amongst wildlife removal companies in Bergen County, NJ.
