What are the Major Wildlife Removal Concerns in Camden?

New Jersey is one of the most biodiverse states in the nation. Camden, located in the southern region of the state, is less populated than other regions and is known for its thick pine forests—called the Pine Barrens.

These Pine Barrens are home to many animals that find their way into local homes, such as skunks, raccoons, woodchucks, squirrels, chipmunks, and snakes. As the warm temperatures of summer fade into fall and winter, many of these small mammals seek the warmth and safety of homes for food, shelter, and raising their babies.

Unfortunately, animals such as raccoons, rats, squirrels and bats carry diseases and parasites that can put you and your family in jeopardy. And they can cause costly damage to your attic, basement, or chimney. Chewed wires, eaten insulation, and holes in heating and cooling ducts are just a few examples of the types of damage you may find.

Many homeowners believe they can trap and remove wildlife on their own. However, in New Jersey, it’s illegal to trap without a license. Your best defense for getting rid of wildlife in your home is to call a wildlife removal company.

Raccoon Removal

These masked home raiders are common in Camden, New Jersey. They are very smart, athletic, and mischievous mammals known to raid trash cans and steal pet food, and they love to make your home theirs. They can breach even tightly sealed structures due to the dexterity of their hands. Raccoons carry many diseases, including rabies, leptospirosis, and more. And, although cute, they are fierce.

Inspection: During our complete inspection, we will identify raccoon footprints and droppings and pinpoint the home openings that allowed them entry into your home.

Removal: Our experienced wildlife removal experts can isolate and trap raccoons using simple, humane, and effective professional-grade traps.

Repairs: We seal up entry holes, disinfect the area, and replace any insulation or other materials damaged by these mammals.

Rat and Mice Removal

Rodents are among the dirtiest animals found in Camden and are prolific breeders. The Norway rat, roof rat, and house mouse are the most common home invaders. They live in walls, attics, and basements of homes, where they contaminate food and eat through walls and wires as they build pathways.

A small rodent problem can turn into a rodent infestation quickly. Their droppings contain many diseases that can be transmitted to humans, so it is imperative to remove them as quickly as possible.

Inspection: Mice and rats leave behind many telltale signs that we look for, such as droppings, holes in walls, and chewed paper. Our inspectors will also provide a full inspection of your home’s or building’s exterior.

Rodent Pest Control: We set up a rodent trapping and baiting program that quickly reduces the infestation. Each circumstance requires a unique method. Once the rat or mouse removal is complete, we will seal all entry points to prevent future rat or mouse control issues.

Repairs: Holes and cracks created by rodents are relatively small and easy to repair, including mesh for vents.

Squirrel Removal

Squirrels are prevalent almost everywhere throughout the country, and Camden is no exception. While not harmful when in your trees, they can be quite destructive if they take up residence in your home.

They can squeeze through small holes or gaps and even chew their way in and set up nests in your attic or walls, where they can damage insulation, electrical wires, soffits, and more. They also leave behind feces that can transmit salmonella and leptospirosis.

Inspection: Our inspection includes looking for signs of chewing, small openings to your attic or crawl space, droppings, nuts, or nesting materials.

Removal: Squirrel removal is customized and can include live trapping, one-way doors, and deterrents. When babies are present, they will be relocated with their mom or sent to a local wildlife rehab center.

Repairs: We will make permanent repairs at their point of entry, fix insulation and any damage from urine or feces.

Bat Removal

Bats are protected by law under the New Jersey Endangered and Nongame Species Act of 1973, which makes it illegal to harm, capture, or kill bats. If you have bats in your home or building, they must be abated by proper methods during seasonal safe dates by a wildlife specialist.

Usually, bats do not harm people and are beneficial to have around, as they eat harmful bugs such as mosquitoes, spiders, and flies. But, if they are living in your attic or shed, bats need to be removed. It is unhealthy to inhale or come in contact with their feces because of fungal spores. Their feces also attract roaches.

Inspection: We will look for telltale signs of bats include piles of droppings in one corner of your house or attic, stains on walls, an ammonia smell, and squeaking sounds.

Removal: The legal method of removing bats is with a one-way bat-valve. That is also the humane method, as it releases the bat back into the wild to find another home.

Repairs: Repairs after freeing bats in your home include disinfecting their roost, removing all guano (bat feces), and sealing entry points so they cannot return.

Skunk Removal

Well known for their strong odor, skunks frequently choose to live under structures such as your deck or shed. Aside from the danger of you or your dog getting sprayed, skunks are common carriers of rabies.

Inspection: Inspectors will look for a pungent odor, skunk feces, and the distinct footprints they leave in mud, dirt, and snow.

Removal: Skunks need to be removed by a professional to avoid getting sprayed or having their spray ruin deck furniture.

Repairs: We will get rid of any skunk odor and repair entry points.

Bird Control

The Camden region is home to many bird species that like to build their nests in eaves, gutters, vents, and pipes.

Inspection: We will find all the nesting spots on your home as well as the surrounding trees in your yard.

Removal: To keep birds away from your home, we seal holes and install screens over gutters and vents. We clear away debris from your yard, even trimming tree branches that are close to your home.

Repairs: We install barriers around your roof to prohibit roosting and repair any dented or scratched areas.
