Elizabeth Critter Advice:
Will a pest control company remove wild animals? If you are like most homeowners, you have a friendly neighbor hood exterminator that comes round twice a year or more to help keep you free from roaches, spiders and other pests. He probably also offers yard control against termites, fleas ticks, and mosquitoes .But what happens in the spring when a pesky family of raccoons moves in your attic or you suddenly discover you have bats in your belfry? What do you do in winter when tree squirrels move into to avoid the cold weather or a family of skunks makes a den under your front porch to get out of the wind? Don’t bother calling your usual exterminator! While your local pest control company may be able to help you with bugs and spiders, you need a professional wildlife removal service to handle creatures like raccoons, bats, snakes, skunks, tree squirrels and other wild things.
The majority of extermination companies are not equipped with the knowledge, materials, or proper supplies to handle these wilderness creatures. A professional wild animal removal service will be aware of all local, state, and national laws and regulations attached to the creatures you are trying to eradicate. Their firsthand knowledge of each creature’s breeding and hibernating cycles will aid them in the animal’s quick capture. They will also know the best traps to use and where to place them to rid you of the trespassing pests safely.
A wildlife removal service doesn’t just take care of your animal problems, but can help you maintain your home’s exterior and yard so that this type of infestation does not reoccur. If you find yourself being bothered by Rats and mice there also plenty of companies that specifically handle these critters as fall into a category all their own. Rodents are rather unique in the pest control world, as they are neither a, bug, nor are they considered “wild animals”. No matter what type of infestation you may have, If you feel that you can “do it yourself” when it comes to animal removal be smart! Call your local agricultural extension agency or game warden. They can provide valuable information on the proper way to handle these woodland creatures.
Wild animals often have fleas, mites, and other pests. Some even carry diseases that can be transmitted to you or your pets. Remember they are considered wild animals, and a frightened animal will often do anything necessary to protect itself or it’s young. Follow all precautions should be observed when near these animals.

This Month's Advice: Bird Net Installation
Sometimes you may really want to capture a bird or birds. Maybe you want to keep them in a safer environment or simply want to relocate them. When a New Jersey bird netting is done in the proper way, you will be happy with the results and the birds will be safe.
What you need to know
- First, establish their routes- the areas they use to get into your house or building. Mostly it will be near roofs and ceilings.
- Know the species of birds you are trying to catch. Some Elizabeth birds are protected and your do it yourself moment may pave the way for you into court.
- You need to have the proper measurements of the place you intend to net. Any errors will see the bird escaping.
- Get the right net. Not any net will do. A good bird net can be found at your local animal control store.
- The quality and material of the netting matter. This is because what may harm one New Jersey bird may not harm another. This also lays emphasis on the knowledge of the birds in question
What to do
Once your nets and any other equipment needed for the job are ready, get to the location you want to net.
- Carefully stapled/hammer your net to edges of the located. For instance the ceiling. Ensure no space is uncovered.
- When you need to overlap nets, ensure you overlap them together to at least 6 inches over each other and pin/spittle/loop them together in a way that ensures a New Jersey bird will not get through.
- When netting around obtrusions, ensure you cure as small a piece as is possible to only allow for the object in question and nothing else to fit through the space.
- Your netting should be cut in a way that allows for angles in the building. For instance right angles or circular form depending on the building.
- With extra netting, seal any opening that may occur on your netting and especially on edges, which tend to need more than one lawyer to ensure it is firmly fixed.
What to do next
Observe the birds. This ensures that you are able to remove an Elizabeth bird as soon as it is caught. Because once the bird is caught it will automatically try to free itself, it may get injured trying to free itself. It is therefore essential that you check your net regularly to ensure the birds caught are quickly removed from the net. Once you have caught the birds, you can safely relocate them toa safe place like in the woods, or take them to your local wildlife control offices. Because installing may be a little tricky, take precautions, wear protective clothing for instance gloves, and use good tools. If the job is too hard, call a New Jersey expert.
