Dark dank flooded crawlspace in Bay Head, NJ

A homeowner in Bay Head, NJ contacted Cowleys because he suspected a possible dead animal in his crawl space. As a wildlife technician, I was sent out based on the homeowner’s call to us. Crawl spaces are notorious problem areas for homeowners. Vented crawl spaces can be fraught with water and humidity problems, and the often damp and dark environment is an ideal harborage location for termites, other insects, rodents, and nuisance wildlife. Also, unlike basements, crawl spaces are often difficult to access and maneuver about once you are down there. They are rarely visited and inspected. Problems can go unnoticed for quite awhile until either issues surface in the living areas of the home like odors from mold or rotting animal carcasses. 

Here, it was fortunate that Cowleys was contacted. Although I could not locate an animal carcass, the homeowner had other crawl space issues that need to be addressed immediately. As often happens, an inspection identifies problems that the homeowner was unaware of. Here, the basement had been flooded and the crawl space floor had a layer of stagnant water. The homeowner knew this problem needed to be fixed, and I let him know that Cowleys has a specialized contractor division that handles a variety of home improvements including mold treatment and a crawl space encapsulation that alleviates water issues and converts crawl spaces into clean dry foundations. An appointment was made fro one of our inspectors to identify the source of the water problem and come up with solutions to fix the problem, both immediate and long-term.

Termite seek refuge in Marlboro, NJ church

Recently, I was sent to a church in Matawan, NJ for a termite inspection. For termites, no building is off-limits — even a church! Here, there was extensive termite activity around the framing of a Termites seen here were having a go at the framing of a small flight of stairs leading to a stage in the church’s gymnasium. There is a common misconception that termite damage can occur only around the perimeter of a building. While perimeter damage is common, termites will find gaps in the foundation anywhere to reach wooden building materials. With these steps, the closest exterior wall was more than 100 feet away. I took some photos of some termites in action showing workers gathering food for the colony and a soldier termite tasked with protecting them. 

An expedited termite treatment has been scheduled.

Deer encounter on wildlife call

Most of my days are filled with dealing with nuisance wildlife problems. I find the best solution to capture and relocate the animals, clean up whatever damage they have made, and close up the entry points into the home to prevent a re-infestation. I love my work and dealing with animals. Many forget that us wildlife technicians are all animal lovers at heart, or we couldn’t be in this type of work. Our job is a win-win. We help homeowners resolve wildlife infestations, but we also help wildlife by relocating the animals to an area that is better suited for them. We have a responsibility to treat animals humanely and with compassion, especially as we continue to take over more and more of their natural habitat. As our living spaces expand, the inevitable consequence is more human-wildlife encounters. My job is to resolve those animal interactions that have become too close for comfort and pose a threat to a family, we can never forget that animals have a basic right to live on this planet too.

Every so often, I have a special day at work that leaves me with great memories and some interesting stores to share. This was one of them. I was assigned a routine job of trapping some raccoons that had taken up residence in a homeowner’s attic. Even though I’m often around wildlife, I witnessed something pretty unusual. This homeowner was himself an admirer of wildlife, and had been feeding deer in the area. He has been doing so with enough frequency that some deer recognized him as a friend, someone non-threatening. It reminded me of the same initial interaction from which wolves slowly became domesticated as dogs; those less aggressive wolves realized that they could have a pretty good life hanging around humans for food and protection. You can call it survival of the friendliest. In this case, over time, deer actually approached the homeowner. If I did not see it with my own eyes, I would not have believed it. A doe and her two fawns were literally eating food out of his hand! According to the homeowner, this little family would leave the nearby woods and stand by his side door, every day at the same time, waiting for some treats. He said that they were so consistent you could almost set your clock to when they would arrive. They loved apples, of course, but, surprisingly, they also liked bird seed. Most of my days are spent separating nuisance wildlife from human habitats for the benefit of both species. On special days like this, however, it was a wonderful change of pace to see people and animals getting along. It’s a great reminder that we all live together on this planet, and our connection with wildlife can be a positive one. For the rest of that day, as the saying goes, I had a smile on my face that nobody could wipe off.

We're looking for effective pest control year round through exterior applications. Our current company does not do a thorough job if they think we're not home - we want to make sure you'll be spraying behind shutters, around windows, etc. Also we'd like a responsive company for any out-of-the-ordinary problems.
