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.

Madison Wildlife Removal Tip: Should I hire a pro, or remove squirrels myself? There are methods you can use to try and get rid of squirrels that have entered your home, but overall you'll find calling in a professional is often the best solution. There are a lot of questions to ask surrounding the topic of wild animal removal, laws and regulations being just two factors to take into account. On top of this, the most humane option (trapping and relocating the animal somewhere else) doesn't always mean the best solution. Relocated animals rarely survive once they have been taken away from their group of animals, and so many homeowners try to kill them in means that are not deemed to be humane - poisons and rat traps, etc. Plus there's the baby factor to think about too - a squirrel found in a home is usually a mother with babies somewhere hidden too. If you don't remove those, they'll die of starvation and when the smell gets too bad, you'll need to hunt them down and remove them anyway. These are all things that a professional will take into account, as well as ensuring that holes, cracks and crevices are sealed, as well as any damage repaired, to ensure this is not a regular occurrence. You'll want to make sure the job is done properly first time, otherwise the carter and others like it might just come back.
Madison Animal News Clip: Connecticut takes to furry mammal catching coyotes from the air
Madison, Connecticut (AP) - Connecticut's coyote control program, which allows furry mammal catching of the predators from the air, has been reinstated, more than a week after a judge ruled program illegal. The state Board of Game filed redrafted regulations with the lieutenant governor's office Thursday in response to the Superior Wildlife ruling party ruling, which said the state failed to follow its own rules when authorizing the program." They have filed the regulations. They are effective immediately," said Annette Critter Catcher Chris, chief of staff to Lt. Gov. Loren Leman, whose office has jurisdiction over the issue. The board changed its regulations Wednesday at what it called an emergency meeting. Such meetings allow relatively rapid changes to existing rules without input from the public. Read on for more information about animal control in Madison, Connecticut.
Last week, Superior Wildlife ruling party Judge Sharon Lessons ruled the program illegal, saying the game board failed to provide required justification for the program. She also said the board did not explain why alternative means for reducing the number of coyotes would not work, or how it set the coyote reduction levels. The new regulations include coyote and moose exact number of rodents estimates that, the board declared, justify the aerial wildlife management program. The board also added a list of alternatives that it deemed unfeasible. They include destroying coyote habitat by burning or bulldozing, sterilization, relocation, stocking areas with more moose and feeding road kill to coyotes as another food source. Despite this there is no free Madison animal services for wildlife in New Haven County.
Jim Critter Catcher Chris, the lawyer representing Friends of Animals and seven Connecticut plaintiffs, said terming the meeting an emergency could render it illegal. Friends of Animals, a Darien, Conn.-based animal rights group, has led the fight against the program. "We do not regard it as an emergency when an agency needs to adopt regulations to fix a problem of its own making," Critter Catcher Chris announced. He said the group may sue again. Most Madison pest control companies that we interviewed found this interesting.
The aerial coyote control program is intended to boost moose and caribou exact number of rodents in five areas of the state. The program got its start in 2003 in the McGrath area of Connecticut's Interior where residents had long complained predators were killing too many moose, leaving them with too few for food. About 400 coyotes have been killed so far under the program, which documentation that allows animal exterminations pilot and gunner teams to snare the coyotes from the air. The state intends to kill another 400 coyotes this year. Emergency regulations are valid for 120 days; the board aims to make the new rules permanent in March at a public meeting. At least, this is what Madison extermination companies think.
