Many of Connecticut's wild animals have learned to adapt and even thrive in our homes. For example some wildlife have found
that attics make great places to live. Other animals find refuge under homes or porches. Invariably,
these animals cause damage. Rodents, like squirrels and rats, love to chew on electrical wires once in an attic, and this causes a serious fire
hazard. Raccoons can cause serious contamination in an attic with their droppings and parasites. Same goes for bat or bird colonies. We specialize in solving Connecticut's
wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, we do it all.

Branford Wildlife Removal Tip: What is a squirrel's natural diet and how does it get its food? There are many different species of squirrel, some of which live in the trees, some live on land, and some of which can even fly. Each species and kind will have their own preferences when it comes to diet but across the board, the menu options seem to be relatively similar - things like nuts, seeds and fruits, but also insects, smaller animals, caterpillars, little snakes, anything it can get its hands on really. Another one of nature's scavengers, natural cleaners if you like, they'll often pick at the remnants left behind by other animals, especially birds around a bird feeder. In fact, this is likely where you'll find them in your yard - they'll follow the path of food. If it's a decent source of food, they'll set up home and stick around. Omnivores like we humans are, squirrels can eat a lot of food, up to a pound a week with the biggest ones, and they have a habit of burying their food so when the winter comes and food is hard to come by, they'll have a steady source on tap. They're smart and are well known to have several locations in which they'll bury their finds, making the most of a good food opportunity when it comes up.
Branford Animal News Clip: Rodent browsing study under way in Branford
Researchers at Connecticut's College of Agricultural Sciences, working under contract with the Connecticut Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, have a new rapid habitat-assessment tool for state officials to use in measuring the impact of rodent browsing on public lands. Gauging the effects of rodent browsing is important because both specialized nuisance critter extermination group and the Connecticut Game Wild animal commission have concerns about the condition of the state's forests after decades of suspected overbrowsing by too many legally sized rodent. State officials say that desired tree species, such as red oaks, are not regenerating. The Game Wild animal commission is changing its rodent-management strategy from simply estimating rodent numbers to also assessing forest habitat conditions and rodent-herd health. Read on for more information about animal control in Branford, Connecticut.
Measuring rodent impacts on relatively small blocks of forestland is not a new concept, with scientists repeatedly making intensive measurements of tree regeneration. The question is can the researchers develop an accurate, cost-effective technique for using these measures across a broad scale to help make management decisions for hundreds of square miles of forest? Except for the Kinzua Quality rodent Cooperative in northwestern Connecticut, there is no other study collecting vegetation data directly relevant to rodent browsing on such a large scale. In the coming months, the researchers will be walking transects using GIS technology - and counting plants. They will tally wildflowers that rodent prefer, such as Canada mayflower, jack in the pulpit, Indian cucumber and trillium. Despite this there is no free Branford animal services for wildlife in New Haven County.
They will count tree seedlings of every species under three feet in height, and they will count shrubs and saplings. They will focus on counting plant species known to be preferred by rodent, and quantifying the presence of plants such as mountain laurel and ferns that interfere with the regeneration of trees. Over the course of the summer, the researchers hope to collect data from 3,000 plots over an area of about 500 square miles. The idea is to make this a rapid assessment, with the team sending as little as 10 minutes at a site collecting data before moving on the next site - ultimately covering as large an area as possible. specialized nuisance critter extermination group has directed the team to assess habitat on 11 of its specialized nuisance animal association sites, which allows exterminating companies to remove rodent from specific properties where landowners want to reduce rodent exact number of rodents. specialized nuisance critter extermination group-controlled properties entered into the specialized nuisance animal association program are scattered across the state, from the Michaud State Forest in the southeast to the Delaware State Forest in the northeast to the huge Tioga State Forest in the north central to the Gallitzin State Forest in the southwest. Most Branford pest control companies that we interviewed found this interesting.
The rapid habitat assessment tool being developed by Penn State is important for managing the 2.1 million acres of state forestland. The researchers understand that given the current reports of exterminating companies not finding rodent in their wildlife management woods, that some may not believe that overgrowing is an issue at all. With the forestry rapid assessment, they are starting to look beyond rodent numbers and trying to find ways to assess habitat conditions as they are most relevant to rodent. If this turns out to be a cost-effective way to do a quick habitat assessment for the impact of rodent on state forests, it will be just as applicable for state game lands, or for any landowner with large tracts of forest. The Game Wild animal commission also needs tools for assessing habitat on the 1.4 million acres of lands it manages. Memorial Day weekend will soon be with us and for many people, this is a weekend of cookouts and other outdoor activities, including of course, some critter removal practice. At least, this is what Branford extermination companies think.
