Title: Wildlife Control Operator

Hometown: Union, NJ

Peter Kriz from Cowleys Pest Services

Peter, a longtime resident of Union, NJ, joined Colweys Wildlife Division in October of 2020. Aside from his can-do attitude and plethora of experiences (from various managerial roles to security director), it was Peter's aquatic knowledge that impressed us the most. Peter currently holds several impressive certifications such as Zoonotic, A&P of Fishing, Disease Diagnostics, Crocodilian Biology, Venomous Animals, Amphibian Biology, and Herpetology!

He was looking for a new career in which he can expand his already impressive skillset, so when we heard about an open Wildlife Control Operator position at Cowleys, he immediately jumped on it and we're happy to have him on board!

Peter is a military veteran and he proudly served in the U.S. Army as an Airborne Ranger Pathfinder! The Pathfinders were created in World War II when American paratrooper units needed a way to mark areas and guide aircraft to a specific spot.

Currently, Peter is president of the Jersey Shore Aquarium Society, a position he has had for a long time (and he loves it). What he absolutely loves the most is spending time with his family.

              David called me back right away. He questioned me to assess the situation and came up with a plan for me until Peter could come to the house. Peter was knowledgable, thorough and did not try to sell me services I did not need. I am totally confident that I had the best team working on my issue(raccoon in garage on the day before Thanksgiving).THANK YOU!

  • Dryer Vent Full of Birds in Point Pleasant, NJ

    Dryer Vent Full of Birds in Point Pleasant, NJ

    We were sent out to a condominium association in Point Pleasant, NJ to safely remove birds that were harboring in one of the dryer vents. When we arrived, we spotted a bird coming out of one of the dryer vents on the second floor. In order to safely remove the birds, we installed a customized one-way device over the dryer vent. The birds can push the flap open when they exit, however, because the flap is weighted, they'll be unable to reenter the vent. The best part of this device is that, if there are young birds inside, the adult female will still be able to feed them through the flap, until they leave.

    A short time later, we were able to safely remove all the birds from the home. We then removed all the nesting debris out of the vent, disinfected the area, and installed a DryerWallVent® to each of the dryer vents. The DryerWallVent’s large opening and angled damper provide maximum airflow efficiency for the safe venting of the dryer. Integrated magnets keep the damper closed when the dryer is not in use, keeping nuisance birds and other pests on the outside.
