If you are having a problem with wildlife in your Salem 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 Salem, and I recommend the following:
Conserv Wildlife Services
Cell Phone: 856-203-6592
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Salem County Animal Services: 856-299-2220
Conserv Wildlife Services 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 Conserv Wildlife Services 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 856-203-6592
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 Salem 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
Conserv Wildlife Services is a full-service Salem wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Salem pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all
similar to wildlife removal. Conserv Wildlife Services 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.
Salem 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 Salem raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
Animals in attics - this is our specialty at Conserv Wildlife Services. 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 Salem 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 Salem 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 Salem 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 Salem pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Salem 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 Salem trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Salem 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. Conserv Wildlife Services does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by Conserv Wildlife Services. 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
. Conserv Wildlife Services
also provides dead animal removal in Salem. 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 Salem 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 Salem. And remember, we are a private business, not Salem County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at 856-299-2220.
Salem County animal services does not handle any wildlife issues.

Salem Wildlife Tip #1:
Skunk Life cycle - Skunks mate in the season of early spring and are polygynous, which means that the successful males will mate with more than one female skunk. Before giving birth, which takes place usually in May, the female skunk searches for a den to house her young which are from four to seven in number. Skunks are placental, and they have a gestation period of about 66 days. When the baby skunks are born, they are covered in a soft layer of fur and are blind and deaf. About after three weeks of their birth, they open their eyes. The young are weaned almost about two months after their birth, but they generally stay with their mother until they are about a year old and ready to mate. The mother skunk is protective of her kits, and will spray at any sign of danger. But the male skunk plays no part in raising the kits.
Salem Wildlife Tip #2:
Various type of traps used to capture raccoons - 1. Body hold trap. 2. Paw grip trap. 3. Cage trap. Body hold trap - One can call them traps for giant rats. Different types of these are available in the market but commonly used one is double spring loaded trap. Initially people used to use these traps. Usually people set them where they believe the raccoon moves around for instance open gaps or spaces towards the attic or other places of the house. Since these traps tend to be dangerous few people now a days use them. Paw grip trap - Only professional trappers tend to use such traps. One can find a variety of traps in it too. Basically this traps claps on the wildlife paw and firmly hold it there. People who tend to trap raccoons like this they end up killing them. So it's better to use other type of traps than this one. Accidents - Mostly people end up setting a trap at most convenient place in the house resulting in killing of different innocent animals around the neighborhood. For instance if the trap is set somewhere in the house where it is totally exposed to the sun the animal will die due to dehydration if not checked on time. Or traps near the swimming pool might drown as sometimes raccoons tries to push its way out of the trap. So a professional keeps alert while setting the traps for all the above mentioned problems. Thus regular trapping cannot be the solution for raccoon capture.
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.
