If you are having a problem with wildlife in your Middlesex County home, your best option is to hire a company that specializes in New Jersey wildlife removal only. This is a specialty business, and regular
pest control companies do not use the proper techniques to solve animal problems. I have spent many years reviewing Middlesex County, and I recommend the following:
Garden State Wildlife Services, Inc.
Cell Phone: 973-272-4133
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Middlesex County Animal Services: (732) 247-0433
Garden State Wildlife Services, Inc. specializes primarily in removing animals from attics of homes and buildings - this includes squirrels in attics, raccoons, and rats
or mice in homes. New Jersey also has a documented problem with
bats in buildings, and Garden State Wildlife Services, Inc. is specially trained in bat removal. They also perform general wildlife trapping services, such as the capture and removal of skunks or opossums on the
property. Call 973-272-4133
to discuss your critter problem and schedule a same-day or next-day appointment.
When hiring a company to solve your wild animal problem, you want these features:
- Specializes in wildlife removal, not pest control
- Fully New Jersey and Middlesex County licensed and insured
- Works 7 days per week (critters don't take weekends off)
- Performs full building inspections: enters and inspects attic
- Performs exclusion repairs, with guarantee against animal re-entry
- Offers cleanup of biohazardous wildlife waste
Garden State Wildlife Services, Inc. is a full-service Middlesex County wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Middlesex County pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all
similar to wildlife removal. Garden State Wildlife Services, Inc. performs a full inspection of the home or property, and determines why the animal(s) are there, and if inside a building, how the animals got inside. All
animals (including rodents) are trapped and removed, or if possible, removed from the building using special exclusion devices. Once the animals are gone, preventative repairs are essential, and
cleanup is sometimes recommended.
Middlesex County wildlife trapping - it's not as simple as it may seem. It's illegal in New Jersey to trap without a license. Trap type is very important and there are many different types, bait is somewhat relevant, trap placement
is vital, and there are dozens of small things that are very important to know.
Safety is a concern. Then once the animal is trapped, it must be removed and dealt with in the proper manner according to New Jersey law. We offer Middlesex County raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
Animals in attics - this is our specialty at Garden State Wildlife Services, Inc.. Many types of animals like to live in attics. This includes squirrels, raccoons, rats, mice, bats, birds, and even possums. Critters like to go into attics for a safe place to live
and raise their young. Removing animals from attics is very complex work, partly because of the presence of baby animals. If you need Middlesex County squirrel removal, we can remove all the squirrels from your attic, and seal out any future ones. Read more about how to get rid of squirrels.
Rodent control must be done in a very specific way. First off, the most important thing is that all the openings that rats and mice can use to enter a house be sealed. Then all the rodents must be physically trapped and removed.
Never, ever use poison! Most Middlesex County exterminators will just use this lazy poison technique to kill rodents, and it causes more harm than good - dead stinky rats, and it doesn't solve the problem. Call us for correct Middlesex County rat removal. Read more about how to get rid of rats.
Bat removal is a highly specialized task. New Jersey is known to have colonizing bats who often live in buildings. Bats love attics. If not removed, the colony can grow to a very large size over the years. The bat droppings are often corrosive and
cause health risks. The same goes for bird droppings on or in buildings. We perform Middlesex County pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Middlesex County bat removal. We remove 100% of the bat colony and seal the building so that it's totally bat-proof. Read more about how to get rid of bats.
If you have animals inside a house, no job is complete without proper exclusion repairs. If you simply hire a Middlesex County trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Middlesex County wildlife control company that identifies 100% of the animal entry points
into your building, and seals them shut with professional repairs. In addition, in many cases animals have left waste or contamination behind, and you'll want a company that can provide professional cleaning services. Garden State Wildlife Services, Inc. does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by Garden State Wildlife Services, Inc.. We also trap and remove animals that destroy lawns, such as moles, or digging animals. Sometimes animals like opossums will live under buildings, steal pet food, raid garbage cans, etc.

. Skunks commonly live under sheds or decks, and set up a den. We can trap and remove them without them spraying. Read about how to get rid of skunks
. Garden State Wildlife Services, Inc.
also provides dead animal removal in Middlesex County. If you need help with any other wildlife conflict, from a fox, beaver, groundhog, or any other critter, we can solve it. We also do Middlesex County snake removal - most of the snakes in New Jersey are not venomous, but
call us if you want safe removal, or read about how to get rid of snakes
in Middlesex County. And remember, we are a private business, not Middlesex County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at (732) 247-0433.
Middlesex County animal services does not handle any wildlife issues.

Middlesex County Wildlife Tip #1:
What can you buy to drive away fox under the shed? - Sometimes, rather than relying on traps to remove a wild animal like the fox from your home or yard; you should look towards repellants or similar options to do the job for you. The only problem with this way of thinking is that the things that you will often come across that promise to do such a job, rarely do so as well as they state they will, which can lead to mass disappointment on your part, and a rather costly trip to the wildlife control experts anyway - something you could have just in the first place before you wasted money on various repellants! There are a large number of things that have been "reported" to have worked to successfully drive away an fox from areas such as under your shed, but it makes sense to take these suggestions with a pinch of salt - one person may have found great relief, but twenty others may have rendered them useless! Moth balls are something that have been suggested for years in the fight against various wild animals and especially foxes but the fact of the matter is, this is very much a touch and go kind of situation. Your neighbor may have found relief, but there is no guarantee that you will and you could end up spending a large amount of money on the mothballs over an extended period of time, which you could have better spent on the local professionals to do the job for you!
Middlesex County Wildlife Tip #2:
Trapping A Wild animal In The Yard - One of the most common pest animals to be found in the south east of the USA is the wild animal, and one of the main reasons that people can get frustrated is that they can cause a lot of damage in the yard. In some cases the wild animal will be attracted by garbage bags that have strong smelling food in them, while in other situations they will be attracted by the number of insects and worms they can catch in the lawn. The first step for people trying to catch such an wild animal is to check the perimeter of the yard to see if there is one point that the wild animal is using to get in, as this will often be the best place to locate the trap. If there is no obvious point of entry, then its possible that the animal is actually burrowing in the yard itself, so it is worth checking to make sure that the animal isn't actually living in the yard itself. If this is the case, then placing the trap over the main entry point to the burrow that the wild animal is using will often be enough to catch the animal. It is also worth considering using bait in the trap, with earthworms often proving successful.

In the lovely state of New Jersey you'll find mountains, hardwood forests, pine forests, saltwater beaches and freshwater swamps. There are fields and plots of barren dust. New Jersey is one of the most bio-diverse places in the country. This variety means a fantastic selection of habitats for mammals, reptiles, amphibians, and birds. Over 1000 animal species live in New Jersey, not including humans.
The northwestern part of the state fits into the standard Northeast stereotype. It has hardwood forests and mountains much like Pennsylvania and New York. The northern part of the state is densely populated with people, and many of them make the commute to New York City for work. In this area, because of the habitat, black bears are frequent problem animals, raiding garbage cans at night. Some bears are daily visitors to neighborhood dumpsters and end up as a tourist attraction to distant observers. Coyotes are also found in this part of the state, but the wild canines are not as problematic as are bears in New Jersey.
The southern part of the state has a region known as the Pine Barrens. This landscape is full of thick pine forests and is sparsely populated by people. The Barrens have the usual host of skunks, raccoons, woodchucks, squirrels, and chipmunks, but they are also the home to the county's highest white-tailed deer population. The woods aren't just for the mammals. The Pine Barrens tree frog is a colorful amphibian that makes its home in the trees of New Jersey.
All those little creatures are great dinner ideas for the two largest snakes in the state, the black racer snake and the black rat snake. As you might expect, these large serpents look for rat-sized prey to make up their diets. Black racers and black rat snakes are not venomous. New Jersey only has two venomous snakes, the rattlesnake and the copperhead snake.
Birds are also numerous in the region. Bald eagles are slowly making a comeback, and the warmer weather is ideal for birds like robins, cardinals, sparrows, and geese. In fact, many migratory birds live in New Jersey but never have to migrate because of the mild temperatures. These birds tend to stay inland, leaving the coastal territories to seagulls and other crustacean-eating fowl.
