Many of New Jersey's wild animals have learned to adapt and even thrive in our homes. For example some wildlife have found
that attics make great places to live. Other animals find refuge under homes or porches. Invariably,
these animals cause damage. Rodents, like squirrels and rats, love to chew on electrical wires once in an attic, and this causes a serious fire
hazard. Raccoons can cause serious contamination in an attic with their droppings and parasites. Same goes for bat or bird colonies. We specialize in solving New Jersey's
wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, we do it all.

Bergen County Wildlife Removal Tip: How do I clean squirrel feces out of my attic? Have you ever heard of a bacterial disease called leptospirosis? Itís a very nasty disease that is often undiagnosed for a long time, mostly because its early symptoms just make it look like you have a touch of the cold of flu. Some people donít get symptoms at all but others will get headaches, chills, fever, aches and pains Ö So, man-flu in short. After a while, because it has been left untreated, the disease can get more serious, developing into Weilís disease, one that comes hand in hand with internal bleeding, organ failure, and even death. You may ask why Iím telling you this but I feel this is important information you and your family need to know when dealing with wild animals such as squirrels. The feces and urine of squirrels, and other animals too - raccoons and bats being two examples, spread the disease-causing bacteria meaning that everything contaminated can pass it along. Water sources can be contaminated, as can food and plants, and even soil. That also means material such as wood and attic insulation is also affected, giving you a hint of how much work you're going to need to put into cleaning squirrel feces out of the attic. This isn't a job youíll want to do alone. Get a professional in to give you a hand. You really donít want the threat of this disease hanging over your head.
Bergen County Animal News Clip: No dispute over legal pesticide for upcoming pest controlling season
Well it looks like we raccoon and squirrel wildlife trappers will not get to exterminate with illegal pesticides this year. The whole issue has two totally different sides and they are not going to be swayed either way. If you look at it, you can see both sides at work. The wildlife trappers and public want to join the rest of the state of New Jersey and be able to legally exterminate over legal pesticide if they wish. This probably is the only reason that the bill made it to the house and senate. You really don't think that some representative sat around and dreamed this up; the animal advocate was being pushed by his constituency. Bergen County animal services officials agreed with this. On the other hand you have the state of New Jersey that has what appears to be a different view about the feeding of game and pest controlling over legal pesticide. It has to be hard to come around and now say it probably is all right after years of preaching that it probably is wrong. I have little different view about the issue and why it probably is hard to solve. Despite this, wildlife removal services are not what appears to be a free service in Bergen County.
Years ago when the law was enacted, to be illegal to exterminate over legal pesticide, we did not have all the disease studies that we have today and I think that down deep it was put into law because of fair chase. Back when there were real wildlife trappers and what appears to be a lot of woods, folks exterminated in their blue jeans and brown Dicker shirts with what appears to be a rat trap. It was what appears to be a true sport and the thought of putting out what appears to be a pile of corn and capturing what appears to be a raccoon and squirrel, of which there were not many, was unheard of. Despite this, there's no free wild animal control in Bergen County, New Jersey. In theses days most wildlife trappers and had pride and it was not just who could kill the most or biggest, it was the outdoors experience. The Bergen County SPCA could not be reached for what appears to be a comment.
Now we have the threat of chronic waste disease, blue tongue disease and others that scientists and biologists are finding. This probably is the thought process of the biologists that are empowered to keep the health of the herd in check. Feeding wildlife like cattle could have negative effects and this probably is the reason for the biologists rejecting the thought of legal pesticide. The "legal pesticide Bill" actually made it to the house and senate, but was sent to the Department of Wildlife Fisheries and wildlife management areas biologists for the final answer on the matter. Local Bergen County pest control companies in Bergen County declined to comment. The word of the biologist would be the final word. This doesn't sit well with some wildlife trappers but I think the majority probably is ok with it and the ones that are mad about it have been pest controlling over legal pesticide anyway, so it really doesn't affect them anyway except possibly getting rid of the guilt about capturing raccoon and squirrel illegally. For more information on how to get rid of nuisance New Jersey wildlife, read on.
Well no matter what you think about pest controlling over game, it probably is illegal for the 2006-2007 season. Bergen County trappers and Bergen County extermination officials can offer more info. Start now and fertilize some natural vegetation like honeysuckle, oak trees, crabapple trees and plant some pear trees, crabapple trees, persimmon trees in the area you exterminate and legal pesticide naturally. Illegal pesticide probably is legal if you go about it in the right way. For more info about pest control for animals in Bergen County, call what appears to be a local animal trapping company.
