Wildlife Control & Removal

Critter Control solves wildlife control problems in the Newark, New Jersey area by removing wildlife, preventing future animal issues, and repairing damage caused by nuisance wildlife. 

Wildlife Problems in Newark, NJ

As one of the most populated cities in the state, Newark, NJ, attracts pests that benefit from human activity. Some, like rats, prefer urban areas with plenty of food and large sewers for easy travel. Others, like Canada geese, starlings, and sparrows, are drawn to the waterways and suburbs.

Bat Roosts

The two most common bat species in Newark, little brown and big brown bats, often roost in buildings. This affects residents when the animals enter attics or garage lofts. While bats are only active at night and seldom seen, they can transmit rabies and other illnesses.

Racoons in Yards

Once the sun sets, New Jersey homeowners may witness raccoons searching lawns for food. These pests frequent gardens to dig for grubs, damaging plants in the process. A raccoon that nests under a porch or shed will also defend itself against pets and people, putting them at risk of injury and disease.

Inspection- looking for footprints in or around home, large openings, raccoon poop
Trapping & Removal- Live trapping most effective and humane
Repairs- Seal all entry points. Restore attic insultation. Disinfect latrine sites.
 

Squirrels in Attic

If you have squirrels in your attic, it is likely the Eastern gray squirrel or the Southern flying squirrel. If you hear odd noises in the morning, it is the gray squirrel. Flying squirrels are nocturnal. Red squirrels and the Northern flying squirrel also can be found in Newark. 

Newark squirrels prepare for winter by storing food and searching for warm, dry nesting sites. During these months, residents may find a squirrel inside an attic or chimney. In homes, squirrels gnaw on wood and chew on wires, which can lead to costly damage or fires.

Inspection- Gnaw marks on, in, or around your home. Small openings to attics or the crawl space. Droppings. Debris like nuts or nesting materials.
Trapping & Removal- Live trapping, deterrents, one-way doors.
Repairs- exculsion services focus on repairing entry points. Removing debris, repairing nest sites, decontaminating droppings and urine.

Rats in Newark

Often regarded as filthy, rats earn their reputation by hanging around trash, gutters, and drains. City streets provide the pests with shelter and food, though they may move into homes and apartments for even better accommodations. Indoors, a rat leaves its waste in pantries and spreads many diseases.

Effective rat pest control involves more than a few store bought rat traps. It is imperative to control the entire population because rats breed often. Proper trap placement and 

Inspection- Noises such as scurrying and rat or mouse droppings most prominent signs you have a rodent infestation

Bird Control in New Jersey

Problems with Canada Geese

Protected by the Migratory Bird Act and regulated by the New Jersey Division of Fish and Wildlife, permits for goose control are required. These pests like to gather in Newark parks and yards but are unwelcome for several reasons. First, they feed on grass and have a negative impact on landscaping. The Canada goose also leaves unsightly and corrosive droppings behind. Finally, these birds will chase away anyone they see as a threat to their nests. The most effective Canada geese control is habitat modification. 

Starlings and Sparrows in Yards

Other birds can also cause problems for New Jersey residents. Starlings and sparrows settle in large flocks on lawns, trees, and roofs. These pests disturb residents with their loud calls during the early morning hours. Both types of birds are cavity nesters that may live in crevices on home exteriors or move into vents.
