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 Fairfield 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 Ridgefield animal control for wildlife issues.

Ridgefield Wildlife Removal Tip: Will homeowners insurance pay for squirrel damage? Squirrels can cause a lot of damage to a home and its foundations when left to their own devices. When you spot a squirrel and it seems to be living in your home, there’s a pretty high chance it’s a female which means she won’t be alone - she’ll either be pregnant or already have children. She’ll also be using your home to keep them warm, dry and safe. You wouldn’t mind so much if the little critters didn’t cause quite so much damage but between the scratching, chewing, urine and feces left behind, it’s definitely time for them to go. But what about the damage afterwards? Will homeowners insurance pay for squirrel damage? Luckily, the answer to the question is often yes - homeowners insurance WILL cover unexpected damage caused by rodents such as squirrels, rats and mice. This is not a given however, and it is always recommended to read the terms and conditions of your policy. If in doubt, get in touch with your insurance company before undertaking any repairs expecting them to be covered, and just double check that if repairs are necessary, you won’t need to pay for them out of your own pocket.

Ridgefield Animal News Clip: The skunk- polecats - In Northern America, skunks are often referred to as polecats and are well known for secretion of a foul smelling liquid. Physically, they vary in size ranging from 40-94 cm in body size and weighing between 0.50 kg to 8.2 kg. They are short animals with an elongated body and front legs well adapted for digging. They are cat sized. Commonly, skunks have black and white fur on their bodies although others may have creamed fur. A common characteristic of skunks is their striped bodies. Strips are either single, double or fairly distributed spots all over their bodies. Stripes may be present also on legs and the strips may as well be broken although in rare cases. Skunks can survive in varied habitats such as rocky areas, scrub and open areas. Although they prefer building their dens near water marshes, some species thrive well in dry habitats as well. Urban skunks have nests in culverts and house basements.

Skunks are largely omnivorous. They feed on both animal and plant remains depending on food availability. They eat a wide range of food such as insects, lizards, rodents and birds. They feed on plant remains such as nuts, berries and roots. Skunks living near human settlements and in urban areas feed on garbage and left over. Although not common, they scavenge on circuses while in the wild especially in times of acute shortage of food. Skunks greatly predate on honeybee as their thick fur impend stings on their bodies. Being highly active at night time, skunks will invade other animals’ stored food as they never store their own.

Unless in the breeding season, skunks largely practice a solitary life although skunks living in cold regions may live together in one den to accumulate warmth. They spend their day time in self made and natural burrows. During winter, they do not actually hibernate. However, they may prolong the time they spend in dens during these cold times. Skunks have a short life span largely contributed by their poor eyesight. Their inability to see far makes theme easily run over by vehicles which is a major cause of their death. Majority of them do not make it past three years due to diseases and accidents.

Skunks are largely polygamous mating in spring and giving birth in May. A litter may comprise as many as seven kits and their gestation period spans for about 66 days. The blind kits only gain their eyesight three weeks after birth. Weaning lasts for two months but the cordial relationships between a mother and its kit are maintained till kits attain a reproduction age. This is roughly after one year from birth. Unlike other animals, the male does not participate in raising the kits and if a male feels threatened by a young male, he may unceremoniously kill it to maintain his superiority.

Although skunks have a sizeable number of predators such as owls, they will rarely hurry at their sight and highly risk being eaten. Coyotes are also major predators of the skunks.

In cases of self defense when they feel they are highly threatened they will excrete yellow droplets at a great distance that can cause blindness on its enemy. What's even funny is that fellow skunks are also not pleased with the odor of this liquid making it such an effective self protective mechanism. In northern America, skunks are reared as pets as they are highly social to humans. However this means surgical removal of its scent gland. Skunks in captivity tend to live longer than in the wild. Skunk bites can cause rabies on individuals.
