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.

We do not handle dog or cat problems. If you need assistance with a domestic animal, such as a dog or a cat, you need to call your local Middlesex county animal services for assistance. They can help you out with issues such as stray dogs, stray cats, spay & neuter programs, vaccinations, licenses, pet adoption, bite reports, deceased pets, lost pets, local animal complaints and to report neglected or abused animals. There is no free East Hampton animal control for wildlife issues.

East Hampton Wildlife Removal Tip: Do Squirrels Make Good Pets?

These cute little furry creatures are fun to watch, they scamper up and down the tress hurriedly carrying nuts or any food that they come across. Kids and even adults amazingly watch their big fluffy tail wagging behind their small bodies as they hop around. Their bodies are so light that they easily climb on the fences and are seen scurrying on the roof tops. They have talon like claws to cling on and an amazing set to sharp teeth with which they gnaw any soft possible thing they find. People have found them looking cute and have wanted to keep them as pets, but can squirrels make good pets?

The squirrels belong to the rodent family and have existed for more than 50 million years. They have adapted themselves in co-existing with humans. They commonly eat nuts, fruits, seeds or scraps. They make their nests between strong branches, so that their nests are well supported and do not fall off. They also use the hollow of the trees as their nests.

The Early Months

Baby Squirrels tend to get accustomed with human within the first six months. Like other pets they show affection towards their owners and depend on them for things like food and water. As they near their sixth month their claws and teeth become sharper and longer, they can accidentally harm you and the furniture at your home by biting or scratching. There has been an incident when a child was bitten on its finger till the bone.

During the mating season they may display hostile and harmful behaviour. Although they mean no harm, they are not aware of their strength and may accidently hurt someone. The squirrels are not meant to be domesticated and kept as a pet.

This is the time when people want to free their squirrels in the wild; however this would be an inhumane act as the squirrel would not survive in the wild without being accustomed to finding their own water or food, escaping from its predators, finding itself a partner or making a nest for itself. Well the good news is that they can be taught all these skills before they are left in the wild.

Making a Squirrel Wild Again

If you raised a young squirrel for six months and now feel that it should be set free then you need to help him make a wild squirrel. You can either follow instructions online and rehab the animal yourself or take help from a licensed rehabber.


There are certain species of squirrels that can be housetrained, but it takes a lot of patience, care and your time to get them accustomed to humans. Simple mistakes could lead the animal to cause injuries; hence it is best that they are not kept as pets.

Most of the states and countries do not allow squirrels to be kept as pets; make sure you find out carefully about them and check with your local laws before you can adopt a squirrel for a pet.
