Professional Wildlife Removal Company Servicing Ridgewood, NJ

Ridgewood Wildlife Animal Control

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

Professional Wildlife and Rodent Removal
Cell Phone: 201-328-0537

NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Bergen County Animal Services: (201) 670-7508



Professional Wildlife and Rodent 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 Professional Wildlife and Rodent 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 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


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

  Ridgewood 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 Ridgewood raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
  Animals in attics - this is our specialty at Professional Wildlife and Rodent 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 Ridgewood 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 Ridgewood 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 Ridgewood 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 Ridgewood pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Ridgewood 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 Ridgewood trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Ridgewood 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. Professional Wildlife and Rodent Removal does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by Professional Wildlife and Rodent 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. Professional Wildlife and Rodent Removal also provides dead animal removal in Ridgewood. 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 Ridgewood 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 Ridgewood. 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) 670-7508. Bergen County animal services does not handle any wildlife issues.

Ridgewood Wildlife Tip #1:
DO MOTHBALLS OR AMMONIA HELP REPEL SNAKES?

The term 'snakes' is enough to freeze some people's blood because there is a fear associated with these creatures. If you are dealing with snake problems in your yard and attic, then you must be wondering how to get rid of them. Snakes are poisonous and dangerous creatures on earth. There are many snakes which enter the residential area and pose threat to residents. Mothballs or ammonia are the most common pellets available in the house and are poisonous. It is natural to assume that mothballs can also help in repelling snakes but unfortunately this is not true. This post is to guide how can you repel snakes and why you should not rely on mothballs or ammonia for snake repelling.

Mothballs or ammonia have pungent smell and are poisonous also if they are swallowed by humans and this is the reason of assuming that these can help in repelling snakes as well. But it is a myth. Ammonia or mothballs have a bad odour and are poisonous also and thus they can only help in keeping moths and insects away but are not impactful for snakes. Many people have tried putting mothballs in the areas visited by snakes frequently, but these repellents are not effective. There are risks associates with spreading ammonia and mothballs around your place as pets and kids at your home might swallow it by mistake. Hence, it is not advisable to try this ineffective method of repelling snakes.

Ammonia and mothballs contain some poisonous substances, but they are not effective in keeping snakes away. In other words, the extent of poison in snake is much more than poison content in ammonia or mothballs. Use of them should be avoided for the betterment of your loved ones.

How to get rid of snakes?

We understand your concern as snakes are dangerous and thus we are here to suggest you some of the decent and long-lasting solutions to keep snakes away. Try these easy and quick tricks and save your yard from these unwelcoming guests.

Just like we don't like snakes and term them as creepy, snakes also don't like humans and may be that is the reason that they bite us! There is an easy trick to keep snakes away. Spread some hairs from your hairbrush in the yard area (your hair fall can protect you!). This will help in keeping snakes away from your property. This is something which you can even try when you are out for a campsite.

The common tips include keeping your yard free of clutter so that snakes are unable to find a place to hide. Also, don't sow low growing plants as snakes love them! Invest in snake-proof fencing and create some vibrations in the area surrounded by snakes. This will scare the snakes away and they will leave your premises. There are many snake repellents available in the market which you can consider buying alongside.

Before you put in any efforts on removing the snake, make sure that you learn about type of snake and their behaviour!

Ridgewood Wildlife Tip #2:


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 Professional Wildlife and Rodent Removal, any time of day, at 201-328-0537, for a price quote for Ridgewood wildlife control services. I am confident that this is the best choice amongst wildlife removal companies in Ridgewood, NJ.
