If you have a problem with wildlife in your Willingboro 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 Willingboro, and I recommend the following:
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Burlington County Animal Services: 609-265-5073

When hiring a company to solve your wild animal problem, you want these features:
Burlington County Wildlife Removal is a full-service Willingboro wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Willingboro pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all
similar to wildlife removal. Burlington County 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.
Willingboro 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 Willingboro raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
Animals in attics - this is our specialty at Burlington County 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 Willingboro 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 Willingboro 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 Willingboro 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 Willingboro pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Willingboro 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 Willingboro trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Willingboro 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. Burlington County Wildlife Removal does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by Burlington County 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. Burlington County Wildlife Removal also provides dead animal removal in Willingboro. 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 Willingboro 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 Willingboro. 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.
Willingboro Wildlife Tip #1:
What to do about rodents in the attic - There are plenty of methods that you can use in order to remove a pesky rodent from your attic. You could choose to call a wildlife professional to come and professional remove the animal, as well as performing a clear up and blocking any entrances. You could even choose to do all of the hard work yourself - trapping the animal, releasing it in a legal and safe new environment, blocking up the holes, etc. For some people however, getting rid of a rodent means extermination, and although it is neither humane nor easy, it can be effective in some cases. Of course, there are a few problems that you should expect to run into when using poison to kill a rodent. Firstly, death will not be instant, and in some cases can take up to as much as four weeks to work on the animal. This means that not only will the death be a very painful one, but it will also last for a while, which in turn means you are going to have no idea of where the creature actually laid to rest. You will soon realize when the creature has died though - you will smell it. Just call any local wildlife professional and they will tell you a whole bunch of stories of DIY poison jobs that have gone wrong, with an animal being left decomposing in a cavern in the house somewhere. This means that you can smell it but you can't get to it, certainly not without removing entire sections of attic insulation or hacking apart massive drywall chunks. There is a myth that using poisons dedicated to killing mice and rats will actually cause the animal to dehydrate so when it dies and begins to decompose, it will not smell. This is just that - a myth, and trust us when we say that when this animal dies in your attic or home, you are most definitely going to smell it.
Willingboro Wildlife Tip #2:
What does a baby raccoon sound like - If you need a familiar sound to associate a baby raccoon with, some people would compare their noises to that of a warbling bird. If that doesn't help you any, think of a high-pitched sound with an intermittent vibration. This chirp is very characteristic of a raccoon, and is one of the ways you can determine what animal is in your home without having to poke your head up into the attic. Most homeowners hear babies as the sun begins to set. The adult raccoon, though nocturnal, will often be active in a dark attic throughout the day. The babies will be on a more routine schedule, and you will often hear them scratching and squabbling around dusk. If you've got a litter of baby raccoon in the building, you need to have a professional come and trap the adult. The babies can be removed during the process, and are often used to lure the female into a cage trap.
New Jersey Wildlife Information:
New Jersey State bird: Eastern goldfinch
State mammal: Horse

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.
