If you have a problem with wildlife in your Mount Holly 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 New Jersey and Mount Holly, and I recommend the following:
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Burlington County Animal Services: 609-265-5073
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 609-456-0556 to discuss your critter problem and schedule a same-day or next-day appointment. Click here to learn more about what prices we charge in 2020.
When hiring a company to solve your wild animal problem, you want these features:
EG Wildlife Removal is a full-service Mount Holly wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Mount Holly 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.
Mount Holly 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 Mount Holly 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 Mount Holly 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 Mount Holly 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 Mount Holly 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 Mount Holly pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Mount Holly 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 Mount Holly trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Mount Holly 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 Mount Holly. 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 Mount Holly 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 Mount Holly. And remember, we are a private business, not Burlington County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at 609-265-5073. Burlington County animal services does not handle any wildlife issues.
Every wildlife removal situation is different, from the species of animals involved, the location of the animal inside a house or outside, the extent of repairs or cleanup, etc. It's impossible to give one-size-fits-all prices. Examples MIGHT include:
Small Job: For example, a one-stop job to remove an animal in the yard: $100 on up
Medium Job: For example, getting critters out of your house with minor repairs: $300 on up
Large Job: For example, a project involving many service trips and complex work: $500 on up
Give us a phone call now and tell us about your wildlife issue and we will be able to give you a price estimate over the phone. If you're cool with it, we can schedule a same-day or next-day appointment if you like. Our prices are fair, and a good value because we do the job right, the first time.
Mount Holly Wildlife Tip #1:
Trapping mouse or rats in attic - what to do when you have removed a dead mouse or rat from your attic - The problem with trapping mouse or rats in attic is that you will often find that there are so many other things that you will still be expected to do, and this is very much so the case when you have managed to find a dead mouse or rat trapped. For the most part, calling a local wildlife guy will be the better answer, simply because they are trained to deal with such eventualities, but if you want to do the sorting out yourself, there are more than a few things that you will need to figure out. You must ensure that you get rid of all traces of the animal, and by this we mean the carcass, the feces, urine, and more. Without doing this, you will find that your house will stink to high heaven, and there is a huge risk of disease, especially if you have household pets too. Unfortunately, finding the animal and disposing of it, either by burial or incineration is not the last of your problem, and that can be a very grueling fact, especially if you are already finding the stench of a decomposing body too much to bear. You will need to get your hands on a good biological cleaner in order to completely rid of the biohazard and smell from your attic. You can call the local wildlife guys to find the best ones to use - they will usually have a list that you can choose from. This will help to break down any remnants from the creature's existence in your attic, and will also help to break down any leftover stench. On top of that, you are going to want to go around your home and open all windows - this will allow the house to air out and will make the smell move faster. This can be done even faster still if you are lucky enough to have fans at your disposal - ideally you should place at least one in the attic to let the smell dissipate. Once you have done all of these things, you will then need to look at preventative methods to avoid the situation from happening again. Are you still sure that you don't want to hire a professional?
Mount Holly Wildlife Tip #2:
Who do I call to remove a possum from my attic? - So, you have figured out that you have a possum problem in your attic, what on earth do you do next? Well, you can either go ahead and try to trap the creature yourself, but this will take a lot of time, hassle and money; all of these things could be eliminated as a factor with the help of a professional! There are so many things that you will need to think about with trying to trap a possum. You will need to pick the right trap, put the right bait down, ensure that the traps are in places that the possum will actually be lured in by them, and then you have the concerns of what you are going to do with the animal after you have caught it. It is normally illegal to release the animal in certain places - information that you are going to need to figure out. The trouble and hassle doesn't stop there however; once you have caught the animal, you need to look at the cleanup and this could mean removing the feces and urine left behind, which could potentially cause a biohazard, especially when you consider how many diseases these creatures can carry. Also, you will need to look at blocking all entrances and exits that the animals could have been using to prevent any more problems. The good news is that all of these things can be done by a good wildlife control professional, and you don't have to be super smart to find them either. Just a quick look in the local phonebook or a look online will be able to point you in the right direction. For example, if you live in Florida, you could type in the words "Florida wildlife control" into any internet search engine, and you will be met by many results for you to choose from. Alternatively, you could give the local city animal services a shout and let them lead the way.
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.
