Hello--I live in New Jersey, and I've had an on-again, off-again squirrel. Now my attic is sealed up, and I've been fine. However, for a few weeks, I had a 1040 set up on my patio and have caught some of the local squirrels, just to avoid a future invasion. Apparently, yesterday when I was at work, a bird got caught in my trap, and some of my neighbors noticed and called our maintenance people (I'm in a townhouse development). According to the maintenance guys, it's illegal for me to put a baited trap outside if I don't have a pest control license. Is that true? I'm just wondering if I can get some guidance on what regulations apply for trapping squirrels in a townhouse/condo development. I'm not even sure if I should call the NJ Game and Wildlife Department or Environmental Protection.

Here's a link to more squirrel removal information and pictures from Rid-A-Critter, an Atlanta animal control company.
