Q: What does it cost?
A: The cost of removal and prevention can vary greatly from job to job, as there are many contributing factors. Simple trap and relocate jobs are usually the least expensive depending on the amount of animals we catch, and we offer different options so you can choose how long you want the trap set up at different price levels. In cases of animals in your house/attic, we can remove and seal off an entry for a minimal fee- but if your location needs extensive work, such as an environmental cleanup or a full home exclusion, costs can go much higher. However, when an environmental cleanup is necessary, insurance will often help cover the costs. This is why it is important to have a full on-site inspection done by a wildlife master.
Q: What if there are babies?
A: We will absolutely do our everything possible not to separate a baby animal from its mother. We recognize that babies cannot survive on their own, and do not want any harm to come to them. If the animals are very young, after removal we will release them and their mothers back into the wild on a nice day at the appropriate time of day for that animal to thrive. In the rare cases the animals are separated from the mother we usually bring the babies to a rehabilitation center where they can be properly cared for and released when ready.
Q: Should I be worried about rabies or other diseases?
A: When wild animals are involved, there is always concern. The primary carriers are raccoons, skunks, bats and foxes. Aside from rabies, there are other bacterial diseases and parasites that can be spread from wild animals to humans and to our pets. This is why it is important that you let trained experts handle wild animal situations instead of trying to do it yourself. Our experts have the proper gear and material to trap and remove the animals from your areas and bring them to an appropriate location. It is up to the homeowner to make the decision to get rabies testing done, not our technicians. Our techs are vaccinated for this job and it is your responsibility to do the same for yourself and your family members before you call us. If you need more information please research rabies and other diseases on a credited website.
Q: Is the snake I found venomous?
A: If you find a snake, NEVER TOUCH IT! Though most snakes in New Jersey are not venomous, there are a couple of wild snakes native to northern New Jersey: the Northern Copperhead (reddish and orange stripes) and the Timber Rattlesnake (stripes of different browns)
There is also the possibility of it being a snake unnatural to the area (being that there are collectors of reptiles whom sometimes lose their snakes), and in that case there is no telling if it is venomous or if it is a constrictor, either of which can be dangerous to your family and your pets.
