Elizabeth NJ Wildlife Information

New Jersey Wildlife Commission: 609-292-6685

New Jersey Game WardenIf you have any questions about the wildlife of Elizabeth, you can contact the New Jersey Wildlife Commission, sometimes called the New Jersey Fish & Wildlife Agency. New Jersey game wardens address many wildlife management matters, from hunting licenses, to poaching, endangered species, and Elizabeth wildlife management. They deal with wild animals outside the range of a pest control company, such as cougars or bears. If you have a problem with nuisance wildlife in Elizabeth like squirrels, snakes, bats, or raccoons, the state agency is very unlikely to help. You need to hire a private company (here are their prices) such as EG Wildlife Removal at 973-607-2206.

I also have listed several sources for free Elizabeth wildlife help. One example, if you've found an injured animal or lost baby bird or other baby animal is the Elizabeth Wildlife Rehabilitation Clinic: 908-730-8300 Or just read below for more info about the wild animals of Elizabeth.

Types of Wildlife and Animal Problems in Elizabeth, NJ

New Jersey State bird: Eastern goldfinch
State mammal: Horse
State fish: Brook trout
State insect: European honeybee

New Jersey has four very different habitat regions, making it one of the most bio-diverse states in the United States. The coastal area is loaded with beaches and almost has a completely different human culture than the rest of the state. Urban New Jersey is right across from New York City, and this is one of the most densely populated areas of the state. In contrast, the southern part of New Jersey is dominated by pine trees and thick forest, and it is sparsely populated with people compared to the rest of the state. Up in the northwest, hardwood forests and mountains start the transition into the type of vegetation seen in the rest of the Northeast.

The wide variety of habitats means a wide variety of animals. New Jersey has over 1000 different animal species. These animals find homes in pine forests, hardwood forests, freshwater and saltwater marshes, and beach ecosystems.

Of the 90 different mammal species in this state, the black bear is the largest. These predators are most commonly found in the northwest portion of the state but have been spotted in every county. The bears are particularly problematic because of how populated the northwest part of the state is with humans. As a rule, black bears mind their own business; however, in a state where people and garbage are plentiful, bears can become frequent visitors to local dumps or garbage cans. The second largest predator in this state is the coyote. These canines are scarce, and spend their time in the wilder region of New Jersey. The large predators in this state are not considered nuisance animals like the smaller mammals that like to run amok.

Hikers out looking for animals will find more white-tailed deer than in any other state in the country. In addition to the deer, squirrels, skunks, foxes, raccoons, beaver, and groundhogs are all common sightings when out in the woods. Mammals don't hold all the glory for wildlife spotters. New Jersey has hundreds of bird species, including a growing population of bald eagles.

With so much water in the state, it's no wonder there are over 300 species of fish, reptiles, and amphibians in both freshwater and saltwater regions. New Jersey has swordfish, sturgeon, copperhead snakes, rattlesnakes, snapping turtles, and a colorful frog known as the Pine Barrens tree frog.

Elizabeth Wildlife Tip
Is Rodent Poison In Dead Rodents Dangerous? - If you have been dealing with an invasion of rodents in your home and have used poison you may well be concerned about the rodent poison in the dead carcasses. If you have domestic pets, particularly dogs, the poisoned carcasses may well be a danger to them. If you have had to take the step of leaving poisoned bait in order to deal with a persistent rodent invasion then you will, no doubt, have taken the necessary steps to protect your domestic animals, and indeed your children, from the poisoned bait. Poison must always be used carefully and in exact accordance with the manufacturer's instructions - which may well include information pertaining to disposal of the dead bodies.

Once you are left with carcasses you must take the same protective measures - rodent poison in dead rodents is best dealt with by disposing of the creatures in a responsible manner, preferably by incinerating them. You may need to discuss your plans with your local animal control officer or city planning because it is not uncommon for poisoning rodents to be illegal. It is essential that you keep track of the poisoned bait and the dead animals - do regular checks of your property and, once you are sure you have dealt with all the rodents then remove the poison thoroughly.

Wildlife - Rabies-infested flying mammal bites citizen

Anyone who finds a bat or other suspected rabid or sick animal may cover it with a bucket or trash can, Bat Regulation Exterminator said, but should not touch the animal. Hooray for wild creatures and critters!

Elizabeth Animal Services picked up 15 to 20 bats last month in response to calls from individuals requesting help with the elimination of the animals, Bat Regulation Exterminator said. After an animal that is suspected to have rabies or has had contact with humans is picked up by Elizabeth Animal Services, Bat Regulation Exterminator said the animal is sent to Austin to be tested for the disease. For more on Elizabeth wildlife, read on.

She said people must realize that because of the city's rapid growth and the large amount of construction being done around town, the habitat of the wildlife in Elizabeth has been disturbed. Snakes and coyotes are not all mean.

Displaced animals often find they have supplies of food, water and shelter within the metropolis limits - and they do not care if they are trespassing on someone's backyard, Bat Regulation Exterminator said. Urban wildlife is common in many cities, Bat Regulation Exterminator said. "They're here to stay," she said. "People do not ever understand that it's getting to be as normal as seeing a rat or a squirrel." Remember to treat the wild animals of Union County, New Jersey, with respect and care.

He will trap again, hoping to get a mink and badger. If he's lucky. Raccoon and muskrat animal exterminating doesn't need a raccoon and muskrat to be memorable. My five-year-old son, the critter capture kid, has waited anxiously every autumn of his short life for the opportunity to go bow animal exterminating with me. I know this because he's told me at least a thousand times, usually just before I've left the house and headed out across the field into the waiting woods. Before he could talk it was just the sad-eyed look of a tiny little boy longing to follow his dad into the September forest. Continued next week ...Elizabeth Wildlife.
