If you are having a problem with wildlife in your Tuckerton 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 Tuckerton, and I recommend the following:
This Space Available
Cell Phone: ###-###-####
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call NJ Ocean County Animal Services: (732) 657-8086
This Space Available 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 This Space Available 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 ###-###-####
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 NJ Ocean 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
This Space Available is a full-service Tuckerton wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Tuckerton pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all
similar to wildlife removal. This Space Available 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.
Tuckerton 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 Tuckerton raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
Animals in attics - this is our specialty at This Space Available. 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 Tuckerton 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 Tuckerton 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 Tuckerton 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 Tuckerton pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Tuckerton 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 Tuckerton trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Tuckerton 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. This Space Available does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by This Space Available. 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
. This Space Available
also provides dead animal removal in Tuckerton. 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 Tuckerton 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 Tuckerton. And remember, we are a private business, not NJ Ocean County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at (732) 657-8086.
NJ Ocean County animal services does not handle any wildlife issues.

Tuckerton Wildlife Tip #1:
What should I do if there is a raccoon in my attic - A raccoon in the attic might seem like the end of the world, but it could be worse; you could have a rat infestation. People will argue the merits of one over the other, but a raccoon isn't going to be sneaking through all the areas of your home in the way a rat would. Regardless, you need to have the animal trapped and removed before you can think about fortifying your house. One of the biggest mistakes homeowners make is sealing up the raccoon hole when they see the animal leave the building. The problem with this is that most raccoons inside of a home are mothers. Somewhere inside there is a litter of kits that will be crying to be fed in a few hours. Not only will the mother return to your attic, if she can't get in, she'll try to create a new opening. If she's unsuccessful and you never remove the babies, you'll eventually be hunting through your walls looking to remove stinking corpses. The smell of a dead animal can take months to dissipate, and you can only imagine what multiple decaying bodies would be like. The best way to handle the situation is to have a professional come and trap the mother raccoon as well as find and safely remove her young. This way mother and children can be relocated to a safe place together.
Tuckerton Wildlife Tip #2:
Trapping a possum - kill traps - If you are having serious issues with a possum that simply won't go away, you could consider using kill traps. As the name suggests, kill traps are ways of trapping a possum so that they are exterminated, rather than alive and with the need to relocate. Although there are more humane methods to remove the possum from your land or property, this is a favored option for a few, and it makes sense to know how to use them properly to ensure that everything goes according to plan. As long as they are used properly, kill traps for trapping a possum will kill the animal quickly and painlessly, and as long as all instructions are followed word for word, are relatively easy and pain free to set up. However, you may find that these simple tips may give you a helping hand to get everything done as soon as possible: Bait - try not to use meat as your bait when trapping a possum with kill traps. This could potentially attract other animals that you have no interest in trapping. Ideally, you will want to use fruit; perhaps try kiwi or apples? Time - you will want to place traps around in the later stages of the evening so that it is still light enough to see what you are doing safely, but still early enough to catch the possums before they head out on their nightly trails. They normally wake up to forage for food at around 9pm, and will return back to their beds for around 4am. Security - When you put the kill traps for trapping a possum on the ground, you will want to ensure it is tightly pegged to the floor so it cannot move. The same applies for traps that you are putting up higher - always make sure that it is securely attached to a tree or similar. Kids and pets - Always make sure that your kids and your household pets are safely inside the home before you set these traps up. You are trying to catch and kill a possum, after all, not your favorite pet! Sense - Use your head when you are using and setting up these kill traps. Always read all instructions given to you, don't test it out with your fingers because they will be broken by the traps, and at the same time, don't be stupid.
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.
