Located approximately 20 miles from the Delaware River in southwestern New Jersey, Mount Holly is a small town with less than 10,000 residents. As the county seat of Burlington County, Mount Holly is well known in the region for its historical buildings and greenspace. Both features draw not only plenty of visitors but also plenty of wild animals. If you’re a Mount Holly resident or a business owner trying to rid your property of a nuisance raccoon or two, pesky squirrels in your crawl space, or a roost of bats in your attic, call your local Critter Control office. We’ll gladly remove these animals from your property and also make the necessary repairs. 

Critter Control Wildlife Removal Process

Critter Control is here for you every step of the way in the wildlife removal process. From inspection to removal—and even exclusion and repair—we have the services you need to get rid of raccoons, rodents, and other nuisances fast. First, we identify the animal on the property, then use humane methods to remove the animal and secure weak points where more could enter. If damage has been done, we can make those repairs for a complete restoration. Contact a Critter Control office near you today.


Wildlife Inspection

During the inspection we try to ascertain how many animals there are, where they are located, and how they got in. Based on what you have seen, heard and smelled, we start the inspection where you have noticed signs of animal activity. Evidence of animals inside your home include nests, dens, feces, and animal tracks. We investigate the exterior of your home looking for possible entry points, any evidence of animal damage, tracks, fur, animal waste, or rub marks.


We use several methods to humanely remove the animal from your home. Depending on the species, the number of animals, and the condition of your property, we develop a custom wildlife removal plan. Humane wildlife removal strategies include animal traps, one-way doors, and repellents. Once we guarantee all animals are gone, we implement exclusion techniques. Exclusion techniques provide a safe, long-term solution to nuisance wildlife in your home. We create barriers to prevent animals from getting to resources. We only apply exclusions once we are sure all animals are gone from your home.

Exclusion and Repair

Wildlife will damage your home. Exclusion techniques repair any damage the animal causes getting into your home. Inside your home, animals build nests and dens out of readily available material. They will create runs through the insulation. Rodents will gnaw on anything including electrical wires and pipes. Animals can also spread diseases. We apply sanitation agents to clean up feces and urine. Mammals can host pests like fleas, ticks, and mites. Ectoparasite treatments exterminate those pests so you don’t become their next host.

Raccoon Removal in Mount Holly

Mount Holly offers the perfect habitat for raccoons and also, unfortunately, quite a few opportunities for these particular animals to find food and become a nuisance. Famous for raiding trash bins and pet food, raccoons can cause worry for other reasons. Raccoons throughout the state of New Jersey have tested positive for rabies in recent years, including in Burlington County. Therefore, if you’re a Mount Holly resident encountering raccoons around your property, please stay away from them and contact your Critter Control office as soon as possible.

Inspection: Your Critter Control technician will inspect your crawlspaces, attic and chimney if you have one. We will also note disturbed trash cans and pet food bowls.

Removal: Do not attempt to remove a raccoon yourself by harassing the animal in any way, as raccoons can become aggressive when threatened. Our specialist will use a humane trap to remove the animal(s).

Repairs: We will seal all entry points to prevent future entry. And please leave cleanup of urine and feces—and den removal, if necessary—to your Critter Control specialist.



During the inspection, we determine the severity of the raccoon infestation. We look for physical evidence like footprints in or around the home, stains from raccoon feces and urine. On the exterior of the house, we look for damage like scratches on boards, broken vents and screens, ripped apart shingles, destroyed soffits, and every possible entry point.

Trapping and Removal

Raccoon Trapping

Live trapping is one of the most efficient ways to get rid of a raccoon. Depending on the situation, a one-way door or excluder valve can be installed. An excluder valve works by allowing the raccoon to leave but blocks its reentry. The choice of device is largely dependent on the season and location of the raccoons on your property. Direct capture is not commonly used because raccoons are a rabies vector species. If we must trap, we place traps strategically to safely catch the raccoons and we check traps frequently, based on state laws.


We provide a wide range of repair and restoration services. We can repair raccoon damage like broken screens on vents and chimneys and broken boards on decks and porches. It is essential to apply cleaning agents and ectoparasite treatments on areas inhabited by raccoons.

Rat and Mice Pest Control

Mount Holly property owners are no strangers to occasional visits from rodents. While it may not be unexpected to find a mouse seeking shelter inside your historic property, an infestation must be dealt with immediately as rodents not only contaminate food but also spread disease. Please call your Mount Holly office as soon as you notice any signs of a rodent infestation, and we will send one of our trained technicians to eradicate the problem for you.

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: Eliminating rodents requires a carefully planned solution. Our specialist will determine the number of traps required to capture and remove all rodents on your property. Please be aware that it may take up to a week or more to trap all rodents. Our specialist will visit your property daily until all rodents are trapped.

Repairs: Once all rodents are removed, we will seal up all entry points. Our specialist will also clean up all feces, urine and nests left behind.



During a rodent inspection, we thoroughly inspect your attic and provide a complete exterior home inspection. The most common signs of rodent activity are gnaw marks, feces, rub marks, nesting material, runs in insulation material, and small entry points.

Trapping and Removal

Rodent Trapping

A Critter Control wildlife specialist will create a strategic trapping plan to remove the rodents found in your home. Critter Control specialists may use snap traps and live traps to capture and remove mice and rats. Rodent trapping can usually takes between five to fourteen days.


The best way to reduce the possibility of letting unwanted rodents into homes is to seal possible entrances. Exclusion methods include caulking cracks in foundations, capping chimneys, and installing mesh covers over vents and crawl space entrances. We also strongly recommend a maintenance service. Rodents have front teeth that continuously grow, which means they can gnaw a new way back into your home.

Squirrel Removal

These quick, bushy-tailed creatures can become a nuisance for Mount Holly residents if one or more squirrels make their way inside your home. And if you inadvertently offer a steady food supply, they’ll make repeat visits to your property. It’s best to leave removal to a trained specialist who will humanely trap and remove squirrels.

Inspection: Squirrels are known for setting up nests in attics. They’re also known for chewing through fascia boards and squeezing through vents to build those nests. We will inspect your property for all points of entry and signs of damage.

Removal: Our specialist will be happy to capture the squirrel(s) with a live trap or install a one-way door. Please do not attempt to chase squirrels out of your home yourself.

Repairs: Our specialist will seal up all entry points and clean up all feces and debris left behind. We know these animals can leave a big mess—don’t worry, we’ll handle the cleanup.



Wildlife specialists look for signs such as chewing on, in, or around your home, small openings leading to the attic or the crawl space, droppings, and debris like nuts or nesting material. Beams, wires, pipes, and insulation may all show signs of damage from squirrels.

Trapping and Removal

Squirrel Trapping

Live trapping or one-way doors are the most effective and humane ways to get rid of squirrels. One-way doors should never be used during birthing seasons (Spring & Fall), so our specialists will decide which is the best tool for the job. If we have to trap, we place traps strategically to safely catch the squirrels and check those according to state laws.


We can restore your home or office by squirrel proofing all entry points after we have removed the offenders. We can also clean-up the nesting sites and remove any debris, food, feces and soiled insulation.

Bat Removal in Mount Holly

Nine bat species call the state of New Jersey home. Small towns such as Mount Holly offer bats more than a few spots to set up roosts, including attics. The most common species in the state of New Jersey is the big brown bat. This bat is also most often tested for rabies in the state. Discovering a bat roost inside your home can be disturbing. Rather than reach for a broom and attempt to remove them yourself, please allow a Critter Control specialist to humanely remove all bats for you.


We perform a full interior and exterior inspection and search for signs such as rub marks, guano, a strong scent of ammonia, and small openings. The most common sign is the accumulation of guano (feces).

Trapping and Removal

Bat Removal

The most effective and humane way to remove bats is by utilizing a bat valve in conjunction with a full home exclusion. A bat valve allows for bats to exit your home but not re-enter. We follow all local ordinances for humane bat removal. We will never abandon flightless pups in your attic.


After removing the bat valves, we seal the entrance hole(s) so bats can no longer enter your home. If there is substantial guano in your attic, you should consider taking advantage of our attic remediation services to remove the soiled insulation and replace it.

Skunk Control

Nightly skunk visits are not unheard of in Mount Holly. Like other nocturnal animals, these animals enjoy foraging for food in trash bins and pet food bowls. They also love to dig and cause a lot of property damage if they’re not relocated. 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 a skunk, do not try to scare it away. Instead, call your Critter Control office for assistance.

Inspection: In addition to noting the familiar odor of skunk spray, our wildlife specialist will inspect your property for the usual signs of skunks, such as disturbed lawns.

Removal: In addition to spraying when threatened, there’s another reason skunks removal should be left to a specialist: These animals carry diseases such as rabies as well as parasites, such as ticks, that cause diseases. Your Critter Control specialist will gladly capture and remove any and all skunks for you.

Repairs: Before we leave, we will help eliminate any odors left behind and address any property damage.



In addition to noting any pungent odors that signal the presence of a skunk, we will inspect the condition of your landscaping, as skunks are known for tearing-up lawns and shredding grass while hunting for grubs and insects. We will also inspect the perimeter of your building’s foundations and under decks, to locate burrows.

Trapping and Removal

Trapping and Removal

Never try to remove a skunk from your property yourself. Getting sprayed is a very unpleasant experience. Furthermore, these animals may carry diseases that can spread to humans and pets, such as rabies. Our specialists will use live traps to capture and remove skunks for you, or they’ll use a one-way exclusion device to evict skunks from their harborage areas. The most effective ways to control a skunk problem is exclusion and habitat modification.

Skunk Control

The most effective ways to control a skunk problem is exclusion and habitat modification. Methods like sealing foundation gaps, replacing and screening broken foundation vents and installing hardware cloth (rat walls) around unprotected sheds and decks are the most effective and permanent ways to keep skunks out.
We recommend keeping pet food inside and securing any trash bins.
