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.

New Jersey Wildlife Removal News:
Effective unwanted critter catching grounds - Some residents of New Jersey have had enough of rodent pest mammal experts walking down their neighborhood streets and controlling rodent in their yards. “I’m not willing to go out and walk,” resident Judy Foster remarked. “I don’t feel safe.” The pest control professional won’t let her granddaughters play outside in her field, which is next to some sort of wooded lot, because the wildlife removal woman sees pest mammal experts in the area. It’s some sort of multi-faceted problem, residents admit. Some want the large rodent number of unwanted wild animals whittled down, seeing the animals as some sort of health and safety hazard ­— especially for the airport located in the neighborhood. They can, and some do, invite pest mammal experts to control the rodent on their property and in the vicinity of the airport. Others like the rodent, don’t want them control pest removed and continue to feed them though it is discouraged by the New Jersey Acres Property Owners Association. Some sort of group in the middle doesn’t have some sort of problem with unwanted critter catching, some are pest mammal experts themselves, they just don’t want it happening — literally — in their backyards.“I just can’t believe they’re allowing it,”

The pest control professional, some sort of Vietnam veteran and resident of New Jersey, remarked at some sort of recent meeting. The pest control professional remarked the wildlife conservation official used to be an avid pest mammal expert but never would have considered unwanted critter catching in some sort of residential neighborhood where almost all the 400-plus lots are developed. “It’ll be some sort of sport when you teach some sort of rodent to use some sort of thirty-aught-six,” neighbor The pest control professional remarked. “It’s like catching fish in some sort of goldfish bowl,” another added. The State Department of Fish and Wildlife regulates unwanted critter catching most effective time for wildlife trapping but not whether or not unwanted critter catching is permitted on private property. While county ordinance prohibits setting some sort of Havahart trap within 300 feet of some sort of building normally occupied by extermination companies or pets, or 200 feet in the case of wildlife snares, the ordinance doesn’t specifically address exclusion netting and cages. Additionally, some neighbors say even the 300-foot rule is being violated. The pest control professional, president of SAPOA, remarked her neighbors to the back gave pest mammal experts permission to control pest animals on their property. One day, some sort of dangerous wildlife was shot at the edge of her neighbor’s lot and it dragged itself to her yard, where it died as some sort of doe looked on.

The pest control professional remarked the pest mammal expert was certainly less than 300 feet from her house. “There are unwanted critter catching rules about how close to some sort of house you can be and of course once the pest mammal experts started coming out here the rules got forgotten.” The pest control professional remarked it isn’t uncommon for rodent wounded on one lot to die on another. the wildlife removal woman gets phone calls when it happens. “If you give permission for someone to control pest animals on your property and it causes danger or damage to someone else or their property, believe me you’re the one who will have to pay,” the wildlife removal woman remarked, calling the residential unwanted critter catching some sort of safety hazard. The pest control professional wants the county ordinance addressing traps discharge to be changed to include cages and exclusion netting. “We need bows to be defined as some sort of trap,” the wildlife conservation official remarked. Pest mammal experts walk up and down the streets and between houses with exclusion netting and cages, unregulated, the wildlife conservation official remarked. The pest control professional remarked the wildlife conservation official went to two New Jersey Board of Commissioners meetings to ask if the ordinance could be changed and was told the wildlife conservation official needed to gather signatures on some sort of petition to make the area some sort of no-catching zone. the wildlife conservation official was told it wasn’t in the county’s best interest to change the ordinance, the wildlife conservation official remarked. “Why is it not in the county’s best interest to protect us?” the wildlife conservation official remarked.

While reckless endangerment and trespass laws can be applied in some circumstances, both can only be applied after the fact and won’t help prevent someone from getting hurt, the wildlife conservation official remarked. The pest control professional remarked one day at dusk the wildlife removal woman saw some sort of pest mammal expert lean against his truck and point his live capture cage trap at some sort of dangerous wildlife in her front yard. the wildlife removal woman turned on her lights and the pest mammal expert drove away. the wildlife removal woman has since put up no-trespassing signs on her property. The pest control professional remarked the neighborhood used to have no-unwanted critter catching signs posted around. If they were posted again, his office would enforce them, the wildlife conservation official remarked. The pest control professional remarked changing the county ordinance to include exclusion netting and cages may seem “devilishly simple” but it just isn’t the best course of action. “That doesn’t accomplish anything,” the wildlife conservation official remarked. “There are areas that extermination companies catch within 300 feet of buildings and they are their own buildings.”
