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.

Windham County Wildlife Removal Tip: What is a bat maternity colony? A maternity colony is pretty much as the name would suggest - a maternity gathering of female bats ready to have their babies, and then in the late summer, a group or roost of female bats who have recently had their babies and are getting them ready for their journey into the big wide world. Bats will often have different roosting spots for different circumstances and conditions - warmer roosts for the summer in places such as Florida, with a hibernation to the warmer climates for the winter. Bats usually mate in the fall, delaying fertilization of the egg until later on in the spring once they've come out of hibernation. From there, the females gather together for their gestation period, staying there right through until the babies are old enough to take care of themselves. You as a homeowner will need to know about maternity colonies, and about the times bats usually start to build their maternity colonies for your specific state. This is because it is illegal to remove the bats while they are pregnant (usually for around six to nine weeks), and as they are caring for their young. In many states, these are protected animals. The bats are also known to be very sensitive during this period and the slightest disruption could mean the mothers will abandon their babies, leaving you to deal with the cleanup operation.
Windham County Animal News Clip: The Lucky 4-pounder in Windham County
It was the second year for Critter Catcher Chris to go rodent 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 rodent 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 woods.The first morning was clear and cold - great for rodent wildlife trapping, but bad for Critter Catcher Chris. 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 rodent. At about 9:30, Critter Catcher Chris asked if we could get down and warm up in the truck. I agreed, and down to the truck we went.We sat in the truck for about 10 minutes or so until Critter Catcher Chris was ready to get back in the habitat. We climbed back in and saw our first rodent about 10 minutes later. It was a 4-pounder, which I would normally let walk; but because of the weather and our luck seeing rodent, I decided to let Critter Catcher Chris capture him. Read on for more information about animal control in Windham County, Connecticut.
Critter Catcher Chris sat in my lap as I braced the .270 on my chest and helped support the front of the weapon. Critter Catcher Chris sighted in on the male rodent, 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 rodent never moved and never acted like he heard the animal removal trap go off. I told Critter Catcher Chris 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 rodent fever. Despite this there is no free Windham County animal services for wildlife in the CT County.
We waited as this deaf rodent walked around unaware that he was probably the luckiest rodent in the woods 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 rodent grazing out in front of the habitat, and we decided to take her. This time Critter Catcher Chris announced he wouldn't miss. We got in our usual capturing position, and WHAM! - he let her have it. As the rodent stumbled, I caught a glimpse of furry tail, and I told Critter Catcher Chris that I thought it was that 4-pounder from the day before. We waited about 10 minutes or so to make sure the rodent was down and get a little more light for tracking. I climbed down from our habitat and told Critter Catcher Chris to guide me to where the rodent was upright at the time of his trap. As I got closer, I could only find a small amount of blood and told Critter Catcher Chris 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 woods, it became apparent that Critter Catcher Chris hit this rodent really beneficial. Most Windham County pest control companies that we interviewed found this interesting.
We hopped the wall, and the sight was a life-changing moment for Critter Catcher Chris and me. It took us a beneficial while to comprehend the size of this rodent and the awesome face that crowned him. We field-dressed the rodent 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 Critter Catcher Chris and the rodent we now call Bruiser around town, showing Critter Catcher Chris off more than the rodent. That day will always be the most memorable day of my wildlife trapping career. And as far as Critter Catcher Chris is concerned, well, I will almost guarantee he will always be a rodent wildlife manager. At least, this is what Windham County extermination companies think.
