Dylan, a resident of Brick Township, NJ joined our Christmas Design Team in November 2019 and in February 2019 has moved to our Wildlife Control Divison. It was his hard work, can-do attitude, and exceptional customer service that impressed us the most and we are ecstatic to have him part of the Cowleys family.
With an extensive background in construction, Dylan has the skills to repair most any wildlife damage and make your home look as good as new! It was the idea of catching and releasing nuisance wildlife while using his creative skills that originally peaked his about Cowleys Wildlife Divison.
In his spare time, Dylan enjoys fishing with his friends, bowling with his buddies, and the occasional video game when relaxing at home.

A couple in Manalapan, NJ had a major issue with foxes living underneath their deck. We were sent out, inspected the entire area, and set-up our devices to safely retrieve the fox family. Shortly after setting up trapping, the foxes were safely retrieved and we relocated them to a new, humane location.
Although the foxes were safely removed, that was only half the battle. The deck area was still vulnerable for future intrusions from foxes and other nuisance wildlife.
To fix this, we dug a trench around the entire perimeter of the deck area that was 1 ft deep and 1 ft out from the bottom of the deck and then installed hardware cloth. This creates a sturdy "L shaped" perimeter that the foxes (and other nuisance wildlife) are unable to dig through.
Once we finished installing the hardware cloth, we installed lattice around the entire perimeter of the deck. Now the deck is not only protected from future intrusions from any nuisance wildlife, but it looks aesthetically pleasing as well.
