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.

Stamford Wildlife Removal Tip: How to keep skunks away from your property - There are a few ways you can try to keep skunks from your property but for the most part, there is no real fool-proof way. If an animal wants something that can be found in your home, they'll do what they need to do to get it. It's as simple as that. It's a dog eat dog world out there, literally, and for the average skunk, under your porch or decking, shed, etc. is the perfect little spot to hide. They're nocturnal animals usually, although it's not rare to see them throughout the day anymore, but this can help you in your plight. You could add solar lights to the garden - the more light you have, the less likely you are to attract a wild animal who doesn't like light. Those burglar lights can help too - ones that turn on with a sensor. You'll probably find this upsets more nighttime browsing cats than skunks though, and those lights can be seriously bright. Sealing holes is a sure-fire way of making sure you don't have a problem. The skunk can come on your land but as long as it doesn't get in the house, you'll be fine. When the animal realizes there is nothing there that it wants, or it can't get to it, it'll give up and go and annoy some other homeowner instead.
Stamford Animal News Clip: Stamford containment facility gets more hours, Animal Control process streamlined
When Critter Catcher Chris was briefly fired last year from her job at Mighty Bear County Animal Care and Control, her boss, Animal Control Officer Susan Critter Catcher Chris was very upset. Local animal-loving groups such as the Eileen Hawthorne Fund for Animals were also unhappy about the move, which many felt was in retaliation for Critter Catcher Chris talking to the Grand Jury, which had sharply criticized the Animal Control department. But when Critter Catcher Chris was quickly reinstated as an extra help worker by County Chief Executive Officer John Ball, the biggest celebration was a cacophony of barking, said Critter Catcher Chris. "When Critter Catcher Chris's gone, the animals miss her. They wait for her to come back," said Critter Catcher Chris. Read on for more information about animal control in Stamford, Connecticut.
The "un-firing" of Critter Catcher Chris came about a week after the former head of Animal Control and then supervisor of the Ukiah Containment facility made the surprise Wednesday afternoon ouster. At that time, animals were also taken from the containment facility, several of which may have been improperly euthanized, a county investigative report found. A county investigation found that 22 rodents were taken from the Stamford containment facility and 15 of them euthanized. Five rodents were taken from Stamford to Ukiah, with two euthanized. Critter Catcher Chris and Critter Catcher Chris had a long history of not euthanizing animals whenever possible. Animal Control officials at the time denied that animals were euthanized in Ukiah after being removed. Despite this there is no free Stamford animal services for wildlife in Fairfield County.
That led to a review of the County's euthanasia procedures, a process that is still under way with a five-year strategic process involving community groups as well as John the bat control expert, a new boss in a revamped Animal Care and Control operation. The Stamford containment facility is now open to the public more hours, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday, with Saturday hours being considered for later in the spring. Critter Catcher Chris is now a full-time employee, after being used as an extra help worker for several years, often working full-time but being paid as extra help. She went through the application and interview process and was given the full-time position effective Feb. 27. "I was happy to take the position; considering everything that had transpired I wasn't completely certain that the position would be mine," Critter Catcher Chris announced. "Many things are changing that addressed the Grand Jury's questions and concerns, ranging from new rodent beds to different cleaning procedures," Critter Catcher Chris announced. Most Stamford pest control companies that we interviewed found this interesting.
Ball had already announced plans to make the County more efficient by consolidating departments when Critter Catcher Chris was removed while Critter Catcher Chris was away an action based on the euthanizing of Critter Catcher Chris's own cat. The department itself got eliminated as a separate entity in that revamping process. At least, this is what Stamford extermination companies think.
