Garden Gophers

Gophers can be a big problem for homeowners, and especially for those who tend a garden. Gophers easily dig through dirt and create caves and tunnels underground. Gophers eat a combination of weeds, bulbs, crops, roots, grasses, and other plants. Their eating habits can ruin a garden.
Gophers like to burrow under and chew through a garden. They can wreak absolute havoc on your garden space. They love to eat roots, stems, crops, and flower bulbs. They can burrow under your garden and ruin its structure along with all of the crops. They can also damage any bushes, trees, and even the lawn.
Gopher holes are usually several inches to a few feet deep, but can span a few hundred feet in length. Gopher dens can become a labyrinth that winds around your property. The openings to the holes have a horseshoe-shaped mound of dirt around them. Aside from leaving holes in the ground, a gopher can leave underground paths that can damage plants, sheds, and the foundation of a home. Heavy rain can cause the paths to fill up, bringing water damage the compromised areas even more.

Bats in the Attic

There are 6 year-round species of bats and 3 migratory species in the New Jersey & New York area. The region is home to millions of bats. While urban streets are too bright at night for these nocturnal mammals, suburban and heavily wooded regions are perfect nesting grounds. Homes near the woods can be especially vulnerable, as they provide a sturdy structure to protect them from the elements. Man-made structures are great places for bat colonies to roost, especially before hibernation, or during breeding times.
Bats can slip through very small holes or cracks in a structure to gain entry.Attics and lofts are usually the area of the home in which bats inhabit. Bats can be identified in the home by a variety of signs: thumping and flapping noises, screeching and clicking sounds, fecal matter containing insect parts, and more. Bats can usually be seen leaving their shelters within an hour of sunset, and returning around dawn. The entryway used by a bat colony will soon become stained brown with the oil from their fur.
Bat droppings can lead to the accumulation of a fungus that can cause lung disease in humans. As with any mammal pest, rabies can be an issue. While cases of rabies in bats are rare, they show little to no signs of infection.
