Wildlife Control Services in New Jersey Wildlife Control and Animal Proofing Services in NJ At Balance of Nature, it is our mission to make sure that you are able to conduct efficient and affordable animal proofing for your New Jersey home. But, what is animal proofing exactly? If you have had a negative experience with wildlife gaining access to your home or you are looking to make sure that it does not happen in the first place, animal proofing is important. Rather than dealing with an animal problem once it happens, we always believe that both home and business owners should give animal proofing a try. Although we also have a range of effective animal control methods at Balance of Nature allowing you to quickly and efficiently get rid of your wildlife problem, we believe it’s best to prevent the animal from ever gaining access to your home. Balance of Nature provides Wildlife Removal and Control in New Jersey.

All animals removed this way are HUMANELY trapped and relocated. What Wildlife Control and Animal Proofing Entails If you are wondering what animal proofing looks like in practice, it’s actually quite simple. We pay a visit to your home and inspect for any areas that may attract an animal or allow it to enter your home. The most common areas that may be overlooked is the location of your trees, bushes, decks, sheds, trash cans, firewood, and vegetable gardens that may act as a food source. Sometimes habitat modification is necessary to eliminate nuisance wildlife. The most common areas for wildlife to enter your home or business is through roofs, vents, soffits, facias, attic fans, siding, gable vents, chimneys, and where pipes and wires enter your home – rodents especially use these. Other areas that provide shelter for wildlife are under decks, sheds and solar panels. The Most Effective Wildlife Control and Animal Proofing Services in New Jersey The first step is to make sure that no animals have already gotten inside your home: once we are certain that you are 100% animal free, we begin to seal all of the cracks and holes in and outside of your house. We will then identify all of the potential ways that an animal can enter your house, and eliminate these points of entry. Our wildlife control and animal proofing services are very thorough — this is because cracks as small as a quarter of an inch can still allow in small animals like mice and bats. Squirrel and Flying Squirrel Removal – Squirrels in the attic Sealing an entire structure is generally the best way to avoid squirrel problems especially squirrels in the attic. Some may opt for only sealing the entrance hole, but a full warrant is not provided for this service. Sealing weak areas, such as ventilation areas, are also a good way to avoid problems with squirrels. Bat Control and Removal – Bats in the attic Do you have bats in your attic? Exclusion is done in a natural and harmless way, but it must be done during the right time of year. Exclusion is done in such a way as to prevent the bats from reentering the structure. Get rid of bats permanently. Black Bear Control We offer control services for black bears posing problems throughout New Jersey. We trap bears humanely and remove them from your property.
