What Are the Major Wildlife Removal Concerns in Middletown, New Jersey?
Located on Sandy Hook Bay in northern New Jersey, Middletown Township is home to more than 65,000 residents—and plenty of raccoons, squirrels, rodents, bats and other wild animals. The region’s hot and humid summers and icy winters can send wildlife scurrying for a more hospitable environment—and easy access to food—often within attics and crawlspaces or beneath porches and even inside dumpsters. Therefore, home and business owners alike shouldn't be surprised to cross paths with a raccoon in their front yard on a summer evening or a squirrel or two setting up a nest inside a crawl space in preparation for a long northeastern winter.
Raccoon Removal in Middletown
Raccoons are a familiar site for many residents of northern New Jersey. These animals are frequently drawn to residential properties in search of food and shelter. When one too many pay a visit, raccoons can become quite a nuisance, toppling trash cans or setting up dens inside chimneys. While it can be very tempting to shoo raccoons away if the animals are causing a ruckus at night, it’s always best to contact a wildlife specialist to handle them. Raccoons in the Middletown area have recently tested positive for rabies. So, please steer clear of these animals and call Critter Control.
Inspection: The presence of raccoons on your property is usually pretty obvious. Our inspector will note disturbed trash cans and pet food bowls as well as raccoon droppings. We’ll also inspect your crawl spaces, attic and chimney.
Removal: Again, these animals are known to carry rabies, so leave removing raccoons from your property to our specialist, who will use a humane trap to capture the animal(s).
Repairs: Our specialist will not only seal all entry points to prevent future entry, but we will also clean up and disinfect the affected area. Never handle raccoon feces yourself. Leave this task to a trained professional.
Rat and Mice Pest Control
If there’s food and water nearby, chances are rats and mice will seek it out. Residents and business owners throughout Middletown know their properties are not immune to rodents. They may come across a single mouse in their kitchen or have the misfortune to discover their property is infested. It’s easy to feel helpless if you’re up against a few—or plenty of—rodents. Setting your own traps can help, but the better solution may be to call a professional who will ensure all rodents are removed and clean up the urine and feces left behind.
Inspection: Our wildlife specialist will search in and around your property for the usual signs of a rodent infestation—urine, chew marks and sounds of scurrying inside walls.
Removal: Our specialist will set out the required number of traps to remove all rats and mice. We’ve seen it all and will ensure we have the best plan in place for your property. Please note—it can take several days to remove all rodents. We will return to your property to remove and replace traps.
Repairs: To best avoid a future rodent problem, we will seal up all entry points. And again, leave the removal of feces and urine to your specialist.
Northern New Jersey is home to countless grey squirrels that can be fun to observe but also a terrible nuisance for homeowners if these quick, bushy-tailed creatures make their way inside your home or, worse, set up a den in your attic or crawl space. Gray squirrels can be hunted through the fall and winter in New Jersey; however, it’s always best to let the ones that have taken up residence inside your home be handled by a trained wildlife technician.
Inspection: Our specialist will make a note of the usual signs that squirrels are present, such as piles of debris and gnaw marks on wood and wires.
Removal: While it may seem like the quickest way to remove a squirrel, harassing the animal or trying to chase it out the door with a broom or shovel is not the best solution. Our specialist will be happy to capture the squirrel(s) with a live trap or install a one-way door so it can't return to your home.
Repairs: Once all squirrels have been humanely removed, we will seal all entry points and clean up all feces and debris left behind. We know these animals can leave a big mess. Our specialist will take care of it for you.
Bat Removal in Middletown
The state of New Jersey is home to nine bat species, including little brown and big brown bats. These animals are well-known as nature’s best pest control because they eat thousands of insects per day. The presence of a bat inside a home can be quite unsettling for many residents, and rightfully so—bats in the Middletown area have tested positive for rabies in recent years. If you find one or more bats inside your home, please contact your Middletown-based Critter Control office to humanely remove them. Never attempt to remove bats from your home yourself.
Inspection: Our specialist will look for the most obvious sign of bats on your property—bat feces, or guano, along walls and on the floor. Our specialist will also note small openings that may be inviting bats into your home.
Removal: Please leave all bat removal to a trained professional. Do not try to disturb or sweep any bats off your walls. Instead, our specialist will install a bat valve, which allows bats to exit your home but not re-enter.
Repairs: Once all bats have left your home, we will seal up all entry points inside your home. Please also leave the cleanup of guano to your specialist.
Middletown Township has its fair share of skunks that can be found wandering neighborhoods at night. These animals can wreak havoc when they burrow for food or shelter, damaging yards, foundations and even plumbing. When threatened, they will release their pungent spray in defense and leave an unpleasant odor that can linger for days. If you happen to cross paths with one or more in your yard, please keep your distance as these animals have also tested positive for rabies in Middletown.
Inspection: Our wildlife specialist will inspect your property for the usual signs of skunks, including dug-up earth and established dens.
Removal: Never attempt to remove a skunk yourself. In addition to getting sprayed, you may end up exposing yourself—and your pets—to diseases such as rabies as well as parasites, such as ticks, that cause diseases. Our specialist will capture and remove all skunks with a humane trap.
Repairs: We will assist you with repairing any property damage caused by the skunk, including removing any left-behind odor.
Although most people think chipmunks are adorable as they scamper and play. Like squirrels, these little one-pound creatures will enter attics and crawl spaces to hide their winter stockpiles of food. A single chipmunk can gather up to 165 acorns in a day. They give birth to two to eight young at a time. Inside the home is not a chipmunk’s first choice for a home, but they will travel in and out of your attic or crawl space as they store food for winter.
Inspection: We will check your premises for drippings and a stockpile of nuts.
Removal: Chipmunk removal consists mostly of wire mesh to prevent them from entering your home.
Repairs: Damage from chipmunks is minimal, and repairs usually include sealing all small openings that a chipmunk would be able to sneak through.
