Heritage Pest Control: NJ Squirrel & Nuisance Wildlife Removal

Complete with fluffy tails, compact size and substantial chattering, it can be easy to pass squirrels off as just cute animals –– but the reality is that they can wreak havoc inside your home or office if they gain indoor access. Squirrels are exceptionally common in north NJ, including Fairfield and the surrounding areas. Often observed gathering nuts or running in yards, squirrels are also experts at breaking into buildings to nest, chewing through almost anything to get into attics, eaves, or other sections of your building. They may also cause fires in your house or business if they chew through wires in the process and cause electrical shorts.

Squirrels will additionally nest around your property, creating homes out of leaves, sticks and fur high-up in trees. The two most prevalent varieties in our vicinity include the eastern gray squirrel and the southern flying squirrel. While the latter is largely nocturnal and smaller in size, the former is about eight inches long and extremely active during daylight hours. North Jersey squirrels, much like raccoons, are known for carrying other known pests, such as ticks and fleas, that can easily be passed onto humans through common living spaces.

Leave Squirrel & Wildlife Exclusion to Heritage Pest Control

Like just about any wild animal, squirrels pose the threat of biting if they feel as if they are in danger. That’s why it’s best to entrust professional wildlife handling to the expertly trained teams at Heritage Pest Control. Our technicians are specifically educated in humane animal control practices, which means as little harm will be done to the animal as possible. Those techniques include trapping and relocating, as well as exclusion. Exclusion patterns will often encourage an animal to vacate your building, prohibiting re-entry from that same point.

Heritage Pest offers “Clean and Sanitize” services that help you regain order again quickly.

Don’t wait until you have several unwelcome houseguests to treat a wildlife problem. Heritage Pest will remove droppings, treat urine damage, replace insulation if needed and sanitize the area to restore and healthy environment. Urine and feces can carry disease, and even though the damage is generally in your attic or crawl space, the harmful bacteria can be carried into your home.
