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 New Haven 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 Meriden animal control for wildlife issues.

Meriden Wildlife Removal Tip: How To Remove A Wild Animal In The Chimney

You would think the chimney is the last place someone would want to live, but that is not true for some animals who love taking up residence in chimneys. Usually, you wouldn’t know of their presence till you saw things falling into the fireplace when you open the damper or regular noises of scratching. So if you have established that there is an animal living in your chimney, then the next thing to do is remove it. Let us find out how.

If you do not have a cap then the animal can be getting in and out of your chimney with ease, but if you do have a cap, then check for signs of damage on the cap which may be the reason why the animal was able to come inside the chimney.

Now that you have established that the animal is using the chimney. You can use different types of exclusion methods to remove the animal from the chimney. The first thing is to use an exclusion device like an exclusion sleeve which will allow the animal to move out and once it is out the sleeve closes making it impossible for the animal to get back.

The only thing you will have to remember here is that you do not end up excluding the mother while her kids are still inside the chimney. They may end up dying which can cause another host of problems for you and it may also make the mother look for other ways to get inside your house.

You can also use a chimney trap to catch the animal that lives in your chimney. If you are dealing with a mother and her kids, then this will make it possible for you to trap the mother and then relocate the mother with her kids.

When relocating animals, it is best to leave them in an area that is suitable for them. Raccoons and squirrels should be relocated at least 10 miles from your property. Relocation can be difficult for the animals so it is best to at least put them in a place that they may have a chance to survive.

Once the relocation is done, make sure you repair any damages in the chimney and install a chimney cap that will ensure that the animal does not return. It will also deter other animals from building a nest or taking up residence in your chimney.
