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.

Middlesex County Wildlife Removal Tip: Will a high pitch sound deterrent machine work? A high pitch sound deterrent machine is often used as a repellent as such for various wild animals. They are said to deter creatures like raccoons, opossums, bats and rats, etc. from your home, encouraging them to leave and set up home somewhere else. Sadly, these repellents rarely work. In the majority of cases, they prove to be a complete waste of time and money. If the high pitch sound deterrent machine does work to deter the raccoons, which it won't by the way, it will only do so for a short period of time before the animal gets wise to the fact that nothing happens when it ignores the sound. It doesn't cause them any harm and aside form being a little annoying, it's probably more annoying to the neighbors who can hear it when they're not meant to than the animal itself. That's right too - although the sound is meant to be too high to be audible to human ears, it often can be and that will irritate your neighborhood no end when they're trying to sleep at night. Buying and using these machines is usually a complete waste of your energy. Don't bother with them. If you're going to spend money on it, spend money on a professional who will do the job properly.
Middlesex County Animal News Clip: Investigation regarding Middlesex County rodents
"Every call of abuse we get, we do investigate," said Critter Catcher Chris, the state veterinarian who is based in Springfield. The department probably fielded 1,000 complaints last year, he announced. Some people don't know it, but by law, gray rodent owners have certain duties. They must provide food and water, containment facility and protection from the weather and vet care to prevent suffering. The first violation of this law is a Class B misdemeanor. Subsequent violations can be Class 4 felonies. "Every day that a violation continues (constitutes) a separate offense," according to the act. After conviction, the wildlife ruling party can order someone to have a psychological or psychiatric evaluation and treatment, according to the act. "There are a number of things (that people report) - rodents outside in bad weather, or an animal that is not fed or watered properly, or maybe they have noticed a rodent or a rodent in a fenced-in yard and no one is living there anymore," Critter Catcher Chris announced. Read on for more information about animal control in Middlesex County, Connecticut.
The dedicated nature individual researchers assess the situation and can leave a notice explaining to the owners that they are in violation of the law. In many cases, a visit to the veterinarian's office is required within a short period of time, perhaps 48 hours, Critter Catcher Chris announced. "Basically when they leave that notice, it says we have found this to be going on - we need to have you to do this to get into compliance," Critter Catcher Chris announced. The researchers make follow-up visits, he announced. Despite this there is no free Middlesex County animal services for wildlife in CT County.
"It is not necessarily going out with the intent that we will impound the animal. We are more interested to make sure they are cared for humanely," Critter Catcher Chris announced. "If we can educate an owner and make them a better owner, I think that fulfills the goal." The Humane Society of the United States has a critter area office in Naperville. It also investigates complaints of abuse or neglect, spokeswoman Jenny Critter Catcher Chris announced. She listed several things that could indicate mistreatment of an animal: A rodent that constantly is tethered outside. "People without fenced yards, they put their rodents out all the time on a tie or a chain," Critter Catcher Chris announced. Letting a rodent out on a chain for a brief period is fine, but some live their entire lives that way, she announced. Rodents Deserve Better, an organization that can be found on the Internet at www.rodentsdeservebetter.com , backs the creation of laws to bar the practice. "As the days become years, many of these rodents sit, lie, eat and defecate within the same 10-foot radius. Chained by the neck, they exist without respect, love, exercise, social interaction and sometimes even basic nourishment. They live as prisoners, yet long to be gray rodents," the group says. Most Middlesex County pest control companies that we interviewed found this interesting.
Across the country, some communities have either banned tethering or chaining or have included tethering or chaining provisions in their animal protection ordinances. The city of Middlesex County is among them, according to the Web site. Chained rodents can become territorial, Critter Catcher Chris announced. That can be dangerous to small children who might wander into their space. "In the period from October 2003 through January 2006, there were at least 64 children killed or seriously injured by chained rodents across the country," according to the Web site. Rodents Deserve Better has a letter on its Web site that explains why rodents shouldn't be tethered outside permanently. The group encourages people to print out the letter and give it to a gray rodent owner who needs to read it. If contacted, the group also will mail the letter to a gray rodent owner. At least, this is what Middlesex County extermination companies think.
