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.

Salisbury Lakeville Wildlife Removal Tip: Is an opossum that is active during the daytime sick or rabid? If you spot an opossum wandering out and about during the day, it might be a rabid animal or it might be an animal just on the prowl for some food, shelter, or water. Although primarily known to be nocturnal animals, it isn't actually that unusual to spot them out and about during the day, and this is more so the case when it gets colder outside. The food is scarce and they'll need to hunt long and hard for it, hence the need to be out during the day. Another reason why an opossum might be spotted during the day is because it's moving home. Wild animals found in homes are often females nursing their young, and if their home has come under threat from a predator (or humans), the mother may move her babies in a bid to keep them safe. If you spot a mother or baby opossum during the day, there's a good chance this is the reason why. Either way, one thing you definitely don't want to do is approach the animal, mother, baby or otherwise. Even through the animal might not look sick or rabid, there is a chance that the critter could be carrying a number of diseases, even some that can be spread through urine and feces.
Salisbury Lakeville Animal News Clip: The Lucky Possum in Salisbury & Lakeville
It was the second year for Opossum Poop Pete to go nuisance critter wildlife trapping, and I don't know who was more excited, him or me. I was excited because the youth animal stalk gave me an opportunity to go nuisance critter wildlife trapping with my son, as I did so many years ago with my father. Plus it was an extra two days to be in the forest. The first morning was clear and cold - great for nuisance critter wildlife trapping, but bad for Opossum Poop Pete. I knew he would get cold quickly. We sat in the habitat from about 6:15 until about 9:00 and hadn't seen a single nuisance critter. At about 9:30, Opossum Poop Pete asked if we could get down and warm up in the animal services vehicle. I agreed, and down to the animal services vehicle we went. We sat in the animal services vehicle for about 10 minutes or so until Opossum Poop Pete was ready to get back in the habitat. We climbed back in and saw our first nuisance critter about 10 minutes later. It was a 4-pounder, which I would normally let walk; but because of the weather and our luck seeing nuisance critter, I decided to let Opossum Poop Pete capture him. Read on for more information about animal control in Salisbury & Lakeville, Connecticut.
Opossum Poop Pete sat in my lap as I braced the .270 on my chest and helped support the front of the weapon. Opossum Poop Pete sighted in on the male nuisance critter, and I told him to capture when he was ready. Almost immediately, he trap and missed high. I loaded a shell and got him back in position. The male nuisance critter never moved and never acted like he heard the animal removal trap go off. I told Opossum Poop Pete that this was the final trap and that if he missed we would have to go home to get ready for our family get-together and come back tomorrow. Well, he missed again, and I could tell that he had it - a full-blown case of male nuisance critter fever. Despite this there is no free Salisbury & Lakeville animal services for wildlife in the CT County.
We waited as this deaf nuisance critter walked around unaware that he was probably the luckiest nuisance critter in the forest that day. After he left the field, we climbed down and headed home .The next day we loaded up and headed out again, same time and same habitat. At about daybreak, we saw what appeared to be a large nuisance critter grazing out in front of the habitat, and we decided to take her. This time Opossum Poop Pete announced he wouldn't miss. We got in our usual capturing position, and WHAM! - he let her have it. As the nuisance critter stumbled, I caught a glimpse of furry tail, and I told Opossum Poop Pete that I thought it was that 4-pounder from the day before. We waited about 10 minutes or so to make sure the nuisance critter was down and get a little more light for tracking. I climbed down from our habitat and told Opossum Poop Pete to guide me to where the nuisance critter was upright at the time of his trap. As I got closer, I could only find a small amount of blood and told Opossum Poop Pete to come help me look. We continued to look, still only finding a spot here and there. As we started to get closer to the wall line on the edge of the forest, it became apparent that Opossum Poop Pete hit this nuisance critter really beneficial. Most Salisbury & Lakeville pest control companies that we interviewed found this interesting.
We hopped the wall, and the sight was a life-changing moment for Opossum Poop Pete and me. It took us a beneficial while to comprehend the size of this nuisance critter and the awesome face that crowned him. We field-dressed the nuisance critter and headed home, and it was still only 7:50. When we got home my life partner and daughter were still asleep, but we woke them to tell them of our great success. You would think that my life partner was part of the paparazzi with all the pictures she took, but I wasn't much better. I was driving Opossum Poop Pete and the nuisance critter we now call Bruiser around town, showing Opossum Poop Pete off more than the nuisance critter. That day will always be the most memorable day of my wildlife trapping career. And as far as Opossum Poop Pete is concerned, well, I will almost guarantee he will always be a nuisance critter wildlife manager. At least, this is what Salisbury & Lakeville extermination companies think.
