All Wildlife Removal Service of New Jersey
explains how we handle
Grey Squirrel invasions throughout
Monmouth, Mercer, Middlesex, Ocean, Somerset, and Union Counties...
One thing is for sure about working with animals: we certainly don’t use words like
“always” or “never” because those animals will make a liar out of you! But most
Squirrel cases require the same type of solution, and All Wildlife Removal Service is
expert at solving squirrel problems. Our solution, as explained below, is a common and
effective way to get those squirrels out of your home or business once and for all!

Once we determine that you have a
Grey Squirrel problem (see How to Choose a Trust-
Worthy Contractor to learn how we figure out which animal has invaded your property),
All Wildlife Removal Service (or any reputable wildlife removal company) will go about
solving the problem by first setting traps over the opening(s) where the squirrels are
getting in. In our case, we use a spring-loaded multi-catch (repeater) trap – the squirrel
pushes on the trap door, the door opens, the squirrel goes into the trap, and the door closes
on the squirrel.

We then set a number of passive traps up on the roof around the opening. (A passive trap -
otherwise known as a "have a heart” or regular box trap – works by enticing  animals with
bait placed in the back of the trap. The animal walks in and the trap door closes.) This is
done because squirrels NOT inside the structure when we begin the job won’t be able to
get back in once the original repeater trap is blocking the opening.

This causes them to hang around the opening getting upset. They will then go into a baited
trap. Once we have the traps set up, we go around the entire structure sealing up any weak
areas such as:
  • Screening gable vents
  • Metaling off pork chops
  • Ensuring there are no gaps in the sheathing and Fascia boards, etc.

We do this for two reasons:
1) Because it leaves no options for squirrels to get out unless they use the trap
2) Because it enables us to give you a warranty.

If a contractor strictly seals where the animals are ALREADY
getting in and out, you are paying for an incomplete job. It is
imperative to strengthen weak areas, or else squirrels will return
and cause new damage in the future.

(Once you have had a
squirrel get into your structure, other
squirrels can smell the odor and will exploit the structure's weak
areas. Even 20 years into a squirrel issue, odor will continue to
give you a repeat problem.)

We run traps every day until we stop making catches. (See
to understand how traps are checked daily.) At that point, if we
feel that we have caught all the squirrels, we seal the opening
and the job is done! If we are not sure we’ve caught everything
we “mark” the hole by stapling newspaper over the opening for
one day. If the newspaper is pushed (has been moved) at the end
of that 24-hour period, we know we have another squirrel to
catch. If the paper hasn't been moved, we know it’s safe to finish
the job, at which point proper repairs are made.
