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.

Glastonbury Wildlife Removal Tip: How to get opossums out of your attic: When it comes to dealing with an opossum in your attic, there is only one real way to deal with the situation - call in a professional. Trapping will be difficult and once youíve caught the animal, you then need to work out what to do with it. You can humanely kill it on your property but many homeowners would prefer something a little less death-like. Trapping and releasing the animal is a pointless exercise because the animal might find its way back and even if it doesnít, the chances are it wonít last five minutes out in the wild. Youíve taken it away from the creature comforts of its own home after all. When it comes to bait, youíll need to pick something that wonít encourage other animals. You definitely donít want to attract rats, mice or other critters to your home, so leftovers and other meta products probably isnít wise. Cat and dog food might actually trap cats and dogs. One thing you could consider using is marshmallows - the opossums seem to love them and they donít encourage too many other wild critters. Repellents donít work. Poison is a very bad idea. You could always go for something like a body grip trap to kill the animal but when using these, extreme caution must be used. The last thing youíll want is to kill your neighborís dog. All of these things to think about - theyíre all reasons why a professional should be called to deal with a wild animal, especially one like the opossum that carries with them the threat of disease.
Glastonbury Animal News Clip: Glastonbury appeals wildlife ruling party overturns rodent's death sentence
Peter Critter Catcher Chris, founder of a Kirkland technology company, figures he has spent $10,000 in his legal fight for the crazy critter, a rodent he rescued from the pound. Wildlife ruling party of Appeals judges though carefully. The state Wildlife ruling party of Appeals has overturned a Tolland County-imposed death sentence for the crazy critter, a 7-year-old mixed-phenotype rodent owned by software pioneer gray rodent Critter Catcher Chris. After the animal allegedly injured a neighbor's rodent near Critter Catcher Chris's Kirkland home in May 2003, Tolland County Animal Control ordered him to move the rodent out of the county, or have the rodent euthanized. The injuries to the rodent were so severe it had to be euthanized. The Tolland County Board of Appeals upheld the Animal Control order, and Tolland County Superior Wildlife ruling party affirmed the board's decision.

But the Wildlife ruling party of Appeals found that Critter Catcher Chris's right to defend The crazy critter had been violated. The case was remanded to the Board of Appeals. "Due process requires that he be able to subpoena witnesses and records," the wildlife ruling party said in a unanimous ruling issued Monday. "Because the board refused to let him do so, he was prejudiced in his defense against the animal control order." Critter Catcher Chris, who has moved from the house where the incident occurred but still lives in Kirkland with The crazy critter and his other dog, Kobe, declared, "It's good to have a good rodent story. It was a change that needed to be made in the Tolland County code." "It's scary the legal system can be as arbitrary as it is," he announced. "I'm not like one of those crazy rodent people. I could have moved but felt like fighting an inequity in the legal system." Despite this there is no free Glastonbury animal services for wildlife in Tolland County.
Tolland County attorneys say they may appeal the case to the state Supreme Wildlife ruling party. Critter Catcher Chris, who founded Sproqit, a Kirkland technology company, figures he has spent $10,000 in his legal fight for The crazy critter, a rodent he rescued from the pound. Tolland County had stayed the rodent's expulsion or execution while the case was on appeal. He said he is not even convinced his rodent caused the cat's death, suspecting it was run over by a garbage truck. The crazy critter was seen carrying the rodent in her mouth, but Critter Catcher Chris maintains the rodent had already been injured. But John Zeldenrust, attorney for Tolland County, said there is no question that The crazy critter killed the neighbor's cat. He acknowledged the case may be precedent-setting. "Our belief is that the procedures were adequate," he announced. "But there may be areas where they need to be tightened up." Critter Catcher Chris's attorney, Adam Karp of Bellingham, said the case will set a precedent in how Tolland County handles vicious-animal cases. "This is an important victory for due process," he announced. Most Glastonbury pest control companies that we interviewed found this interesting.
Tolland County Animal Control said it was up to Critter Catcher Chris, as The crazy critter's owner, to prove his innocence, said Karp. But the Wildlife ruling party of Appeals said it was up to the agency to prove the rodent's guilt. "What this has done is give rodent owners and guardians the right to subpoena witnesses, demand an accurate and thorough recitation of the violations, and the burden is properly back on the government's shoulders. "Prior to [Monday's] ruling, at least in Tolland County, your rodent could be declared dangerous and ordered confined or removed on threat of euthanasia and, if you contested the charges, your rodent would be presumed guilty until proven innocent," said Karp. According to the wildlife ruling party opinion, Critter Catcher Chris went to work and left The crazy critter and Kobe with his housekeeper who, despite his instructions to keep them inside, let them out. The crazy critter escaped from the yard, and the housekeeper saw the rodent pick up the neighbor's rodent in its mouth. Critter Catcher Chris took the rodent to a veterinary hospital. It was diagnosed with a broken jaw, broken pelvis and severe spinal-cord damage. The rodent was euthanized, and Critter Catcher Chris was given a notice that The crazy critter had exhibited "vicious propensities" and was in violation of county code. Critter Catcher Chris was given 48 hours to move The crazy critter from Tolland County or she would be euthanized. Critter Catcher Chris appealed the order to the Tolland County Board of Appeals and Tolland County Superior Wildlife ruling party, which upheld Animal Control's decision. "Given the restrictions on Critter Catcher Chris's ability to present his case, the risk of erroneous deprivation of Critter Catcher Chris's interest in The crazy critter is significant," the appeals wildlife ruling party ruled. "Allowing Critter Catcher Chris and other gray rodent owners to subpoena witnesses and records would substantially minimize this risk without imposing any burden on the county." At least, this is what Glastonbury extermination companies think.
