Professional Wildlife Removal Company Servicing Irvington, NJ

Irvington Wildlife Animal Control

If you are having a problem with wildlife in your Irvington 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 Irvington, and I recommend the following:

EG Wildlife Removal
Cell Phone: 973-816-2650

NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Essex County Animal Services: (973) 399-6642



EG Wildlife Removal 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 EG Wildlife Removal 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 973-816-2650 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 Essex 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


EG Wildlife Removal is a full-service Irvington wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Irvington pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all similar to wildlife removal. EG Wildlife Removal 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.

  Irvington 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 Irvington raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
  Animals in attics - this is our specialty at EG Wildlife Removal. 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 Irvington 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 Irvington 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 Irvington 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 Irvington pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Irvington 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 Irvington trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Irvington 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. EG Wildlife Removal does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by EG Wildlife Removal. 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. Read about how to get rid of opossums. 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. EG Wildlife Removal also provides dead animal removal in Irvington. 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 Irvington 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 Irvington. And remember, we are a private business, not Essex County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at (973) 399-6642. Essex County animal services does not handle any wildlife issues.

Irvington Wildlife Tip #1:
How to Get Rid of Feral Hogs

Feral hogs can be easily found wondering in the open landscapes, gardens, and yards. They are capable enough to destruct your property within very less time. Feral hogs are very dangerous creatures, and they can attack domestic animals, farm animals, and humans as well. That is why experts advise making all efforts to stay away from feral hogs and make arrangement to keep them away from your premises. Feral hogs are often found in urban areas as they often come to human habitats in search of some food. These animals are considered as one of the most terrible and destructive pests that can cause huge loss to homeowners. It is good to use cages to trap these creatures and release them in the wild area from where they cannot find a path to return. The market is loaded with a wide range of cages, and they are effective enough to trap the feral hogs.

Note that feral hogs are large animals so the cage you select to trap them must be larger as well. Once the animal gets into the trap, it must be carried to some wild area. Some people also prefer to use lethal traps to kill the animal, or they use firearms to get permanent relief from feral hog attacks. Feral hogs are also named as wild pigs, and they are considered as one of the most tiresome pests. They can invade the large area of property within very less time. These creatures often cause huge loss to the farmers in the United States, so it is important to find an effective solution to get rid of them. Professionals advise using fences to block their access to the property; however, snares can also provide effective results.

In case if you live close to the farmlands, these pigs can even attack your property. They are observed to be the ravenous eaters, and the most terrible fact is that they carry lots of disease viruses. There is no point in tolerating them; as soon as you come to know about the presence, it is important to take steps for their removal. Snares are considered as the best choice to trap these creatures. Note that these pigs can even pose a danger to pets and kids in your premises. While depleting food sources, they also keep on spreading harmful diseases all around. If you want to keep them out, it is good to use string fences to deal with them because they can easily walk through the simple fence arrangements. They take very less time to multiply and then it will become difficult for you all to protect your habitat. In case if the state laws in the area where you live allow shooting these creatures, it can be a method to ensure permanent relief from them. However, it is an inhumane way to deal with the problem. In case if you do not find any suitable solution to deal with the problem, it is good to take help from professional animal exterminators.

New Jersey Wildlife Information:

New Jersey State bird: Eastern goldfinch
State mammal: Horse
tate fish: Brook trout
State insect: European honeybee

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 EG Wildlife Removal, any time of day, at 973-816-2650, for a price quote for Irvington wildlife control services. I am confident that this is the best choice amongst wildlife removal companies in Irvington, NJ.
