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.

Sherman Wildlife Removal Tip: Will A High Pitch Sound Deterrent Machine Work Against Opossums?
When you go into your local hardware store or garden center looking for tools that can help you in a pest control capacity, one of the largest section will often be the repellent devices. There are a range of different types of devices that can be purchased, but one of the most common forms of this repellent is a device that emits a high pitched sound that is said to get rid of many different types of animals, including opossums. Indeed, the range of devices is broad, covering some systems with multiple speakers costing hundreds of dollars, down to one small unit that can cost less than twenty bucks in some cases.
How The Devices Work
The theory behind the audio repellent is that the sound that is emitted by the devices are so unbearable to the opossums, and the whole range of other animals that are said to be repelled, that the animal has no choice but to immediately leave the area looking for an easier place to spend time. These devices can either be set to emit a permanent sound, which will often mean a mains connection, while there are motion activated options that will emit a sound when an animal walks in front of it.
Marketing For Audio Devices
One of the most sophisticated aspects of this kind of device is the marketing, as the amount of material and the packaging for these devices is often very slick and stylish. There are a lot of claims that are included on the packaging of these devices, and sometimes even a video of how they work is published online, but the real weak spot in this marketing is the lack of evidence available to back these claims. While the packaging may attract the eye, and the idea of the device may look good, it is important to consider whether these devices can really be effective.
Why Audio Devices Are An Ineffective Repellent
The real issue with many types of repellent is that because they are said to be effective by making animals uncomfortable, many animals can actually survive being uncomfortable quite well. With attractions in a domestic property such as warmth, dark confined spaces and a good range of food sources, many opossums will be able to overcome this discomfort. For most people, saving your money and looking at options such as trapping that will deal with the opossum problem, an audio device will usually be a significant waste of money.
Sherman Animal News Clip: Proposal: rodent capture rodent over bait
If Connecticut Wildlife Resources Wild animal commission Chairman Critter Catcher Chris gets his way the state's rodent exterminating companies will be able to rodent capture over bait this fall. Critter Catcher Chris plans on bringing up the issue, which is not on the agenda, when the wild animal commission meets Wednesday and Thursday in Bethel to set the 2006 wildlife management seasons. "It is already legal to bait wildlife in Connecticut, you just can't rodent capture over it," Critter Catcher Chris announced. "It's already legal in Kentucky (what isn't?), Bethel and a number of other states, so this would just bring us in line with what they are doing." Read on for more information about animal control in Bethel, Connecticut.
Critter Catcher Chris's proposal, which he plans on making during Wednesday's Wildlife Committee meeting, would not legalize wildlife management over bait for any species but rodent. Although wildlife management over bait has long been illegal in Connecticut, it's a traditional form of wildlife management in some states. Officials with Connecticut Wildlife Resources Agency say they plan to oppose Critter Catcher Chris's proposal. Despite this there is no free Bethel animal services for wildlife in Fairfield County.
Critter Catcher Chris said there is no biological reason to not allow rodent wildlife management over bait. "There's a disease question, but I spoke with officials in other states where wildlife management over bait is legal and they said they have not experienced any problems," Critter Catcher Chris announced. "If it is a problem, then baiting should not be allowed at all." He said that staking out baited areas consumes a lot wildlife officers' time. "If wildlife management rodent over bait were legal, this would free officers up for other things," Critter Catcher Chris announced. "I don't think you would see the harvest go up that much. And if anybody believes they are going to throw out some corn and be able to kill a great big rodent, they're mistaken." Most Bethel pest control companies that we interviewed found this interesting.
The rodent are really hitting across the critter area, and reports of possum catches coming in as well. With a day off and good weather, there is no excuse not to hit the water, and with "Trap for Free" days coming up, everyone can get out. The PFBC has designated Saturday, May 27, and Sunday, June 4, as Catch animals with impunity Days. Catch animals with impunity Days allow anyone - not just license holders or youth under the age of 16 - to legally trap in Connecticut. The May 27 Catch animals with impunity Day was specifically designated to coincide with the Memorial Day weekend, a traditional time for families to gather, and the unofficial start of many outdoor recreational activities in the state. The June 5 date is part of the observation of National Specialized nuisance critter extermination and trapping Week, June 3-11. At least, this is what Bethel extermination companies think.
