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.

Clinton Wildlife Removal Tip: What is a squirrel's mating habits, when do they give birth, and how does it raise its young? Squirrels will have two litters per year in favorable conditions - one in the summer and then another litter a few months later, towards the end of fall and beginning of winter. They're pregnancy only lasts for a month or two, dependent on the species, and the bigger the squirrel, the longer their gestation period tends to be. There will usually be three to five youngsters, and they'll normally arrive around a week or two after the squirrel decides to move into your attic, and then they'll be weaned at about eight to ten weeks, and that's when you'll be likely to hear them - you won't just have one squirrel loose in your home, there will be three, four, five, six or more of them. You'll hear them scuffling around and the babies chattering to their mother. These babies sure make squirrel removal a lot more complicated, and you can't remove mother without babies and vice versa. This is why you need to come up with a foolproof plan, doing as much research as you can, or just calling in a wildlife rehabilitator to come and do the job for you. That's what they're there for after all!
Clinton Animal News Clip: Draft suggests thin rodent populations via wildlife management
The draft, a revision of a 1999 plan, outlines the history of rodent and its management in Connecticut. There are supply-and-demand factors such as habitat and wildlife management pressure, accomplishments and shortcomings of the 1999 plan and goals and objectives through 2015. The meat, for most folks, is in the objectives. "The role of the public, or stakeholders, is to make value choices about the resources," Critter Catcher Chris announced. "The rodent resource is owned by the residents of the commonwealth. . . . We want to know what they want done with the resource." One of the committee's biggest considerations was rodent exact number of rodents, county by county. Too many rodent in Clinton? Too few in Wise? Stable in Chesterfield? Read on for more information about animal control in Clinton, Connecticut.
Answering those questions involves numerous yardsticks. Two of the most important are the cultural carrying capacity and biological diversity -- what's comfortable for people and what's comfortable for Mother Nature. Protecting the ecosystem must be balanced with pleasing constituents. Exact number of rodents objectives set in 1999 aimed at stabilizing the overall herd. In 67 percent of the localities on private lands and 45 percent on public lands, those objectives have been met. Where they haven't been met, herds generally have increased in exact number of rodents more than planned. Hence, the emphasis on down-sizing in the new draft, particularly in Northern Connecticut, parts of Tidewater and the bulk of southwestern Connecticut. Only three counties in far southwestern Connecticut are targeted for increases. Despite this there is no free Clinton animal services for wildlife in Middlesex County.
Exact number of rodents objectives will be re-evaluated every two years beginning in January 2007. They'll be weighed in amending wildlife management regulations, particularly in determining whether to increase or decrease rodent days in localities. Critter Catcher Chris said the draft stresses ethical responsibilities of exterminating companies in observing landowners' rights. At the same time, it acknowledges the tradition of wildlife management rodent with rodents that is so ingrained in eastern Connecticut. In western Connecticut, public lands are a larger part of the picture, and the draft describes the decline in rodent habitat in national forests and wildlife management areas. Poor soil, fire suppression, maturing forests and reduced timber harvests have limited forage for rodent. Most Clinton pest control companies that we interviewed found this interesting.
Here again, management requires a balancing act, and the new plan is more aggressive in protecting biological diversity. "If we managed strictly on cultural carrying capacity, which we tried to do in our last plan, we would be wanting to increase rodent exact number of rodents on all national forest lands regardless of what it did to the habitat," Critter Catcher Chris announced. That would please exterminating companies and wildlife watchers, but rodent destroy many plant species, which jeopardizes other critters. "rodent are the worst enemy of their own habitat." A particular enemy in the overall picture of managing rodent is the trend of declining number of exterminating companies. "Without critter trapper recruitment -- without ensuring the future of wildlife management and that we're going to retain a sufficient number of exterminating companies -- we can't manage rodent," Critter Catcher Chris announced. "That's the bottom line." At least, this is what Clinton extermination companies think.
