How We Solve Morris County Wildlife Problems
It starts with your phone call. We answer our phones 24/7, and we will carefully listen to your wildlife problem. Every case is different, so we will ask appropriate questions to help
us understand the situation better. Questions like, "do you hear the noises at night or during the daytime?" or "what type of roof do you have?" After we have a general idea of your
situation, we can provide a ballpark price range, and schedule a same-day or next-day appointment to inspect your property.
INSPECTION: Once on site, we will perform a full inspection of your home and property. This allows us to use the correct strategy and
traps. If the animals are in an attic, a full building inspection is crucial, including the following:
- All ground-level areas, such as piper or A/C line entry & exit areas, A/C chase bottoms, ground-level vents, etc.
- All mid-level areas, such as dryer vents, siding gaps, first floor eaves or dormers, etc.
- We inspect the entire roof, including all plumbing stacks, ridge caps, vents, and other potential gaps or holes.
- We also inspect inside your attic, to identify animals and damage they have caused.
- If the animals are outside, we notice many subtle clues that will assist us in a successful strategy.
TRAPPING, EXCLUSION, REMOVAL: Once we understand what animal species we are dealing with, and the problem, we use the most effective means of removing the animals. We use dozens of different types of traps.
- Trapping - If trapping the animal(s) in live cage traps, trap type, set, and location are crucial to success.
- Exclusion - Oftentimes, we are able to simply set one-way doors or other exclusion devices that allow the animals inside a building to safely exit, but never get back inside.
- Removal By Hand - Sometimes we actually remove animals by hand, or with special tools like snare poles.
- The Law - In all cases, we obey state and local laws regarding wildlife, but aim to take the most humane approach.
ENTRY HOLE REPAIRS: Repairs are a crucial step in the wildlife removal process. In many cases, such as bat or rodent control, the job cannot be performed without detailed repairs, and in
all cases, sealing the entry holes shut ensures that no future wildlife will ever enter your home.
- 100% of the entry holes must be found, and sealed shut, or the job is not complete.
- Our repairs are professional contractor grade, look good, and when applicable we use steel, which rodents such as rats or squirrels are unable to chew through.
- We give a written guarantee on our repairs against any future animal entry.
ATTIC DECONTAMINATION SERVICES: It may be desirable to clean your attic after we've removed the animals. They can leave behind large amounts of droppings,
urine, hair, oils, food, nesting material, and so on. These remnants can attract insects like cockroaches, and the scent left behind can encourage new animals to chew their way into your
house. You might experience odor problems from the waste. It's possible that mold will grow on waste areas.
- We remove or vacuum all droppings, or remove all the soiled insulation.
- We fog the attic with a special enzyme-based cleaner that destroys any organic matter and deodorizes the space.
- We repair damage, such as ductwork, electrical wires, pipes, insulation, and more.
The above are just a brief explanation of some of our methods. I haven't even addressed the hundreds of other potential cases that we deal with, from bat exclusions, to poison-free rodent control, to dead animal removal, bird roosting
prevention, mole trapping in a yard, ground-based exclusion barriers around a shed, etc. etc. Just give us a call any time, and we can describe in detail how we will resolve your specific wildlife problem.

This month's wildlife how-to article: How to get mice out of a wall
Mice are usually drawn to houses by three main reasons including safety, availability of food and warmth. Once mice infest human homes, they will in most cases use the darkest areas such as attics, large cracks and cavities on walls, air ducts and other isolated areas. Mice are perfect climbers and are also able to slip through very tiny holes smaller than their sizes. If ducts on walls are not filled, then this will provide house mice with enough space for escaping and hiding into and as a result bringing more and more problems to human beings living in the same house as the mice.
Mice in wall ducts and cavities
When house mice find their way in wall ducts and cavities, they have found perfect and most ideal homes for their families. Such areas are usually dark and are not easily accessed by both human beings and predators and hence such areas act as safety hiding areas for the mice.
To avoid reaching the level of finding methods of getting mice out of a wall, one must adapt activities that discourage mice from even coming near human premises. Below are few do’s and don’ts that can help make wall ducts and cavities mice-proof;
• Edible items should not be placed near wall ducts and cavities
• Wall ducts and cavities should be well lit in order to discourage mice from using such areas as their homes
• Wall ducts and cavities should be kept dry and very clear at all times
• Such ducts and cavities should be sealed off to prevent mice from using them as homes or get away paths
• The use of repellents on such areas may also help in getting rid of mice
How to remove mice from walls
Snap traps with baits on them should be used to trap such mice that may be hiding in wall cavities and ducts. Snap traps are only meant to trap a single mouse at a time. After placing traps at various places in wall cavities, a regular inspection should be done in order to check for any trapped mice. The mice should then be disposed away from human premises.
As a remedy, such cavities should be filled in order to prevent future mice infestation.
Cavities and ducts on walls should be inspected regularly for any mice that may have adopted them as their homes. Immediate action should be taken to get rid of any mice in the cavities to prevent any problems that may be brought by the mice.
