Pest & Wildlife Pressure in Atlantic City, NJ
Atlantic City, NJ, is a popular tourist destination that supports a large number of travelers, residents, and nuisance wildlife such as rats. As human land development limits resources, foxes and raccoons may also move into local neighborhoods.
Pests on the Pier
Foxes are clever and resourceful. To secure a meal, they will raid trash cans and find their way into yards. Foxes are naturally wary of people, but these animals are still predators. Pets, such as small dogs or cats, are the most likely victims of fox bites.
Many waterfront cities, like Atlantic City, struggle to control rat populations. The area's coastal climate supports these pests, as do warm homes with well-stocked pantries. Rats feed on and contaminate food with their waste, spreading bacteria and other pathogens.
Raccoons in Atlantic City
Many residents of Atlantic City deal with raccoons. These animals are active at night and enter backyards in search of food. A raccoon in New Jersey could harbor parasites or even rabies. Since the pests often crawl into attics and chimneys, an infestation can lead to dangerous wildlife encounters.
Q&A with Local Franchisee:
What are some of the most common wildlife issues that homeowners face in your area?
Our most common issues are squirrels, raccoons, and bats in attics and crawl spaces.
How do the seasons affect wildlife activity in your area?
We have very little animal movement in the winter. Baby animals are plentiful in spring and homeowners call us when they hear the squealing of newborn wildlife in their attic. All “critters” are active in summer, so naturally it's our busiest season. The second baby squirrel season of the year occurs in the fall, and and bats begin to hibernate for the winter.
What are some common signs of nuisance wildlife activity?
Noises in ceilings and walls.
Any prevention tips for residents in your area?
Have us “critter-proof” all roof-line access points; including screened louvers, all building vents, etc.
When should homeowners call Critter Control?
Whenever a potential problem is suspected.
