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.

Westbrook Wildlife Removal Tip: Do mothballs or ammonia help repel raccoons? Raccoons are really smart creatures and you shouldn't be fooled by their cute and furry little faces. They're nocturnal, meaning they'll only out at night, and they have a hibernation-like period during the winter where they sleep. They're very dextrous with hands that work almost as well as human hands, and they can open jars and bottles as well as doors and windows, trash cans, latches, you name it. They're also really good climbers which means they'll easily be able to scale a tree and hop onto your roof before using their sharp claws to tear their way in. The point I'm trying to make is that they are smart animals with sharp tools on their side. They're not dumb animals which is why even trying to use repellents such as ammonia or mothballs is a pointless approach. You can't cover your entire house in these things so the raccoon will always find another place to hide, and not only that, they're dangerous too. What if your cat were to drink the ammonia? Or worse than that, what if your child was to get close to it? The fumes are dangerous enough… It's just not a wise idea. It really isn't.
Westbrook Animal News Clip: The Westbrook Watchdog: Barking at Animal Control
Ever want someone to growl on your behalf? From plowing to potholes, from sediment runoff to sewer blockages, the Watchdog wants to hear about your civic problem. She'll figure out which government agency is responsible, and follow up to see that it's handled satisfactorily. Westbrook Critter Catcher Chris is first in line to compliment county Animal Control for its bright and colorful containment facility in Westbrook and the good work of the staff there. Like most agencies, the social worker figured they could use some dedicated nature individuals. Read on for more information about animal control in Westbrook, Connecticut.
She scheduled meetings with Animal Control director, also known as Critter Catcher Chris, who seemed receptive to some of Critter Catcher Chris's ideas for dedicated nature individuals, such as promoting the department's domestic violence program or trying to start a foster program. But since Animal Control is a part of the police department, Critter Catcher Chris, of Westbrook, was told she needed to be fingerprinted and have a criminal investigation before dedicated nature individuating, which she did. She said two police officers both said "we don't need any of that," when she mentioned some of her ideas. "It's a very fishy thing," Ms. Critter Catcher Chris announced. "The tragedy is the animals. . . . They need so much help." Despite this there is no free Westbrook animal services for wildlife in Middlesex County.
Solution: Howl away. Animal Control Officer Justin Scary said the police department requires all would-be dedicated nature individuals to fill out an application to be a part of the Dedicated nature individuals in Police Service. Currently, Animal Control uses only one or two dedicated nature individuals to do administrative work such as filing. "They can have limited contact with animals," he announced. "We can always take dedicated nature individuals." That limited contact is for the dedicated nature individuals' safety, he declared, since animals can come in contact with a wide range of diseases, including rabies. "We have to look to make sure dedicated nature individuals are safe," he announced. But Queen Anne's County has a different approach to recruitment of dedicated nature individuals. The Department of Animal Control has no need for background checks since dedicated nature individuals are not dealing with juveniles, Director Critter Catcher Chris announced. Most Westbrook pest control companies that we interviewed found this interesting.
The orientation program includes a drug test and two hours of training. The 47 dedicated nature individuals last year posted 2,100 hours. One dedicated nature individual coordinates all the other dedicated nature individuals, and is at the containment facility almost every day. Dedicated nature individuals tackle jobs such as walking rodents, brushing or cleaning up animals and filing, Critter Catcher Chris announced. At least, this is what Westbrook extermination companies think.
