Pest and Wildlife Pressure in New Brunswick, NJ
The warm and humid summers, mild winters, and higher than average rainfall in New Brunswick, NJ, create the perfect climate for many kinds of wildlife. Foxes and bats from green spaces around the city may move into residential areas to pursue prey or the promise of safety and food.
Red and Gray Foxes
The major conflicts between New Brunswick residents and foxes arise from the pests' foraging habits. A fox is a bold scavenger that has no problem searching yards for small animals, like rats, and raiding trash cans.
Northern New Jersey is home to red and gray foxes. Both species transmit diseases, such as distemper and mange, to pets and other animals. Although a healthy fox will rarely attack a human, a rabid one may bite and infect people.
Bats in New Brunswick
New Jersey has six bat species that stay in the area year-round. These pests are a serious health risk when they spend the winter roosting in the attics of New Brunswick homes. The dust of dried bat droppings may spread through ventilation systems in homes, releasing dangerous Histoplasma mold spores into the air.
