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.

Old Saybrook Wildlife Removal Tip: Will a raccoon in the attic have a nest of babies? Yes. Well actually, the answer is more like probably. More often than not, in fact in the majority of cases, a raccoon found inside a home will be a mother caring for her young. She'll be running around the house making all sorts of noises and her young will be in a nest somewhere safe, protected and usually somewhere really difficult for you to get to. The attic, for example, is often a preferred choice. It's easy to get to from the outside because you rarely find the time to put house maintenance and inspections on the top of your to-do list, but also because you won't notice a hole gradually getting bigger and bigger. Most people don't realize they have a wild animal invasion problem until it is much too late and the damage has already been done. If you have seen a raccoon in the attic, or you've heard noises that could be long to a larger critter like this one, make sure you do the full job - do all the investigating first. If you get rid of the mother without her babies, the babies will die in the depths of your home. You'll then need to find them and dispose of them correctly, ignoring the bad stench at the same time of course.
