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.

New London Wildlife Removal Tip: About Raccoons: Appearance, biology, life cycle, habitat, diet, behavior - You'll know a raccoon if you see one, they're pretty distinguishable creatures. Weighing in at up to twenty pounds, gray in color but with the cutest little black mask on the face and a number (usually between four and seven) rings down the tail, it's hardly small. As you can imagine, an animal of this size with those dexterous little paws can be quite a dangerous animal, especially when you throw some sharp teeth into the mix. In the wild these are animals that like to live in forests and other wooded areas, preferably close to a source of water, lots of tree hollows to set up home in and to offer protection from the cold, wind and predators too. Abundant vegetation is preferable close by, but they'll travel up to eighteen miles away from home in order to find food. Smart and adaptable, they're classed as scavengers which means they'll eat pretty much anything they come across as long as it tastes alright, meaning your garbage can will come under scrutiny if access permits. In the wild they prefer something like a tasty frog or a small bird, but nuts and seeds, fruits, insects and even small shellfish and fish if there's some easily accessible. In great conditions, this is a smart animal that could live for up to twenty years or more, although in the wild these days it is believed their life expectancy is only up to about three years of age, predators, disease, hunting and collisions with cars being the biggest reasons behind their demise.
New London Animal News Clip: New London Animal Control and Care Center shows off new, spacious facility
New London - After more than 50 years, a new animal containment facility for New London is a reality. But for animal control workers and containment facility supporters who have long campaigned for a new building, the containment facility still seems like a dream. "It's one of those pinch me, surreal moments," said Melissa Gunny, director of the New London Animal Control and Care Center. "I just hope the new smell lasts. It's like a new car smell." Members of the New London Board, New London Public Building Commission and New London Animal Containment facility Foundation got a sneak peak at the new containment facility Friday. Read on for more information about animal control in New London, Connecticut.
Construction on the building, renovated from the vacant Caterpillar Training Facility at 2820 wildlife management areaway Drive, was finished last week. Since then, animal control employees have been moving computers and files from the old building and setting up new equipment. Gunny said workers will begin transporting animals to the new containment facility this weekend, and she hopes the facility can begin offering adoption services there late next week. The new containment facility will be twice as large as the old facility but is expected to house about the same number of animals. It will provide more individual space for each animal and allow especially important separation between rodents and rodents, said Melinda NAAM, the center's public relations and media coordinator. Despite this there is no free New London animal services for wildlife in New London County.
More room means animal control employees no longer have to deal with unsafe and unsightly group rodent pens used at the converted home and garage, where animal control has been housed since 1951. Other amenities at the new containment facility include a rodent colony room, a gray rodent adoption area, kennels with lazy Susan-style feeding trays, a high-pressure wash system, a medical exam room and a euthanasia room to put wild, sick or aggressive animals to sleep in a calm environment. "We went from pretty much a shambles to a very, very appropriate place to house animals," county board Chairman Critter Catcher Chris Coyote said after taking a tour of the containment facility. "We can be proud of this facility." Jerry Lord, building wild animal commission manager, said the project is "95 percent finished" and came in under budget, but the wildlife management areaing lot still needs to be repaved. Most New London pest control companies that we interviewed found this interesting.
Renovation for the containment facility was funded through $1.9 million in bonds sold by the wild animal commission, while fund raising by New London Animal Containment facility Foundation helped pay for new equipment and furnishings. NAAM said animal control is planning a grand opening on April 22 that will celebrate the new containment facility with music, food and activities. "Of course we'll be open for adoptions, so we hope that will be a high adoption day," NAAM announced. At least, this is what New London extermination companies think.
