Professional Wildlife Removal Company Servicing West Orange, NJ

West Orange Wildlife Animal Control

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

NJ Pest Control
Cell Phone: 973-658-5655

NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Essex County Animal Services: 973-325-4121



NJ Pest Control 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 NJ Pest Control 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 973-658-5655 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


NJ Pest Control is a full-service West Orange wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular West Orange pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all similar to wildlife removal. NJ Pest Control 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.

  West Orange 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 West Orange raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
  Animals in attics - this is our specialty at NJ Pest Control. 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 West Orange 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 West Orange 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 West Orange 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 West Orange pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is West Orange 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 West Orange trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a West Orange 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. NJ Pest Control does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by NJ Pest Control. 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. NJ Pest Control also provides dead animal removal in West Orange. 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 West Orange 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 West Orange. 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 973-325-4121. Essex County animal services does not handle any wildlife issues.

West Orange Wildlife Tip #1:
How To Keep Woodpeckers Away From House

Probably you are in trouble due to woodpecker's problem that is why your search results directed to you here to this page. There is no doubt to say that these birds can cause lots of damage to the premises. They keep on targeting trees, patios and other wooden structures in the garden area; within very less time, they can cause huge damage of several thousand to homeowners. If you are also in trouble due to woodpecker's attack, it is right time to find some methods to keep these creatures away from premises. Below we have highlighted few trustworthy methods to prevent woodpecker's attack and keep them away for the long run.

1. Use visual deterrents:
Most homeowners prefer to use visual deterrents that are easily available in the local stores. Experts say that this is the cheapest and most effective method to keep woodpeckers away. The visual deterrents are capable enough to discourage their repeated access to the area by scaring them with reflective materials. These birds are very fearful and prefer to stay away from shiny objects; so, it is one of the best ways to avoid their return tours to your property. You can buy bird repellent balloons, bird repellent tape or the discs from local stores to scare woodpeckers.

2. Use electronic repellents:
Unlike the previously mentioned visual deterrents, the electronic deterrents are used to discourage repetitive access of birds to the premises via sound waves. It is believed that birds do not like high-frequency sound, and they feel frightened when they hear something like that. That is why experts have designed electronic predators with the noisy system to scare these creatures away.

3. Give them a shelter:
If you observe woodpeckers building nests in your area, it is good to use a creative technique to deal with them. Prefer to create some artificial shelters for them where they can be attracted with ease. When you provide them something else to live comfortably, they will stop targeting your fruit trees. Woodpeckers are observed to have a partial nature towards these artificial birdhouses, and they prefer to shift to it. But it is good to install them before the bird lay eggs in your tree cavities because in that case, the bird will not prefer to relocate.

4. Get physical barriers:
In order to protect your home from woodpecker attacks, it is good to look for some physical barriers that can avoid their return to your premises. The woodpecker spikes can serve you better as they do not allow birds to peck inside. You can also install woodpecker netting to cover the whole premises so that birds cannot find any way to enter inside. However, in order to ensure best results, it is good to use some deterrents or repellents along with the physical barriers to ensure permanent relief.

In case if nothing helps, it is good to look for professional assistance. They know right tips and techniques to handle the situation and can ensure complete safety of your home.

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 NJ Pest Control, any time of day, at 973-658-5655, for a price quote for West Orange wildlife control services. I am confident that this is the best choice amongst wildlife removal companies in West Orange, NJ.
