If you have a problem with wildlife in your Fairfield home, your best option is to hire a company that specializes in Connecticut wildlife removal only. This is a specialty business, and regular pest control companies do not use the proper techniques to solve animal problems. I have spent many years reviewing Connecticut and Fairfield, and I recommend the following:
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Fairfield County Animal Services: 203-576-7727
Bats R Us Wildlife specializes primarily in removing animals from attics of homes and buildings - this includes squirrels in attics, raccoons, and rats or mice in homes. Connecticut also has a documented problem with
bats in buildings, and Bats R Us Wildlife is specially trained in bat removal. They also perform general wildlife trapping services, such as the capture and removal of skunks or opossums on the
property. Call 203-702-1688 to discuss your critter problem and schedule a same-day or next-day appointment. Click here to learn more about

When hiring a company to solve your wild animal problem, you want these features:
Bats R Us Wildlife is a full-service Fairfield wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Fairfield pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all
similar to wildlife removal. Bats R Us Wildlife performs a full inspection of the home or property, and determines why the animal(s) are there, and if inside a building, how the animals got inside. All
animals (including rodents) are trapped and removed, or if possible, removed from the building using special exclusion devices. Once the animals are gone, preventative repairs are essential, and
cleanup is sometimes recommended.
Fairfield wildlife trapping - it's not as simple as it may seem. It's illegal in Connecticut to trap without a license. Trap type is very important and there are many different types, bait is somewhat relevant, trap placement is vital, and there are dozens of small things that are very important to know. Safety is a concern. Then once the animal is trapped, it must be removed and dealt with in the proper manner according to Connecticut law. We offer Fairfield raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
Animals in attics - this is our specialty at Bats R Us Wildlife. Many types of animals like to live in attics. This includes squirrels, raccoons, rats, mice, bats, birds, and even possums. Critters like to go into attics for a safe place to live and raise their young. Removing animals from attics is very complex work, partly because of the presence of baby animals. If you need Fairfield squirrel removal, we can remove all the squirrels from your attic, and seal out any future ones. Read more about how to get rid of squirrels.
Rodent control must be done in a very specific way. First off, the most important thing is that all the openings that rats and mice can use to enter a house be sealed. Then all the rodents must be physically trapped and removed. Never, ever use poison! Most Fairfield exterminators will just use this lazy poison technique to kill rodents, and it causes more harm than good - dead stinky rats, and it doesn't solve the problem. Call us for correct Fairfield rat removal. Read more about how to get rid of rats.
Bat removal is a highly specialized task. Connecticut is known to have colonizing bats who often live in buildings. Bats love attics. If not removed, the colony can grow to a very large size over the years. The bat droppings are often corrosive and cause health risks. The same goes for bird droppings on or in buildings. We perform Fairfield pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Fairfield bat removal. We remove 100% of the bat colony and seal the building so that it's totally bat-proof. Read more about how to get rid of bats.
If you have animals inside a house, no job is complete without proper exclusion repairs. If you simply hire a Fairfield trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Fairfield wildlife control company that identifies 100% of the animal entry points into your building, and seals them shut with professional repairs. In addition, in many cases animals have left waste or contamination behind, and you'll want a company that can provide professional cleaning services. Bats R Us Wildlife does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by Bats R Us Wildlife. We also trap and remove animals that destroy lawns, such as moles, or digging animals. Sometimes animals like opossums will live under buildings, steal pet food, raid garbage cans, etc. Read about how to get rid of opossums. Skunks commonly live under sheds or decks, and set up a den. We can trap and remove them without them spraying. Read about how to get rid of skunks. Bats R Us Wildlife also provides dead animal removal in Fairfield. If you need help with any other wildlife conflict, from a fox, beaver, groundhog, or any other critter, we can solve it. We also do Fairfield snake removal - most of the snakes in Connecticut are not venomous, but call us if you want safe removal, or read about how to get rid of snakes in Fairfield. And remember, we are a private business, not Fairfield County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at 203-576-7727. Fairfield County animal services does not handle any wildlife issues.
Every wildlife removal situation is different, from the species of animals involved, the location of the animal inside a house or outside, the extent of repairs or cleanup, etc. It's impossible to give one-size-fits-all prices. Examples MIGHT include:
Small Job: For example, a one-stop job to remove an animal in the yard: Call for a Quote
Medium Job: For example, getting critters out of your house with minor repairs: Call for a Quote
Large Job: For example, a project involving many service trips and complex work: Call for a Quote
Give us a phone call now and tell us about your wildlife issue and we will be able to give you a price estimate over the phone. If you're cool with it, we can schedule a same-day or next-day appointment if you like. Our prices are fair, and a good value because we do the job right, the first time.
Fairfield Wildlife Tip #1:
What to do about wild critter feces in the yard - Animals don't mean to be as gross as they are, but unfortunately it just kind of happens. When an animal has to go to the toilet, they have to go to the toilet and there is not very much that you can do about it. However, if you have noticed that your family dog or cat is pooping in places that it usually wouldn't, resulting in a rather stern telling off from you, you should probably reevaluate the situation to make sure that the culprit really is who you think it is! Wild critter poop is the same size as the poop that your average medium sized house dog will leave behind, which is why it is often mistaken for dog poop. The only problem with this is that the poop left behind by the wild critter is likely to contain some rather nasty bugs that you are not going to want to put yourself in contact with, and also that you will need to clean up n the safest way possible! Gloves - this cannot be stressed enough - you are going to need some very sturdy, very strong, preferably rubber gloves. These will keep you protected. You will also need bleach to clean the materials that the poop has come into contact with, especially the gloves if you have decided that you don't want to throw them away. At the same time, you are either going to want carrier bags to contain the poop and handles to tie the garbage can lid down with after you have placed the poop in there, or a bonfire so that you can burn it and get rid of it once and for all!
Fairfield Wildlife Tip #2:
What Damage Can Wild animals Do To An House - The wild animal is a creature that will naturally look to live in holes and burrows under the ground, and these activities can often cause damage when they are found in areas near to domestic homes. Wild animals will normally look for holes that are already there, and will then look to expand it by digging more earth from the hole to suit it's own needs. This is one area where an wild animal can cause a massive problem for people and particularly to the house near which the wild animal is digging, and in some cases the animal can actually cause damage to the walls as it is digging. Although it is rare, there are also some cases where the wild animal is digging very close to the wall or the foundation of a house where it can actually affect the structural integrity of the property. Equally, it is also possible for the wild animal to cause damage where it is digging under a deck or a shed where this can undermine those structures too. The best thing if you do have an wild animal near the property is to trap it and have it removed as soon as possible, and then to ensure that any damage is repaired.
Connecticut Wildlife Information:
Connecticut State bird: American robin
State mammal: Sperm whale
State fish: American shad
State insect: European mantis
Connecticut is a small state in the nation, and despite being technically on the coast of the country, it does not have an ocean border. The state is connected to the Atlantic Ocean through Long Island Sound and Block Island Sound, but has no actual sea coast of its own. The majority of the state was originally wooded, though areas of farmland have since been cleared. The forests are full of broad-leaved trees with a mixture of coniferous woodland, and there is a steady rise of terrain to the mountains in the northwest. Summers in the state are warm to hot, and winters are cold; the ocean mediates temperatures and moisture content in the atmosphere.
The state does not have a huge variety of large animals. The moose is the dominate creature on land in size, and it is the only large grazer aside from white-tailed deer. A subspecies of the white-tailed deer, called the key deer, grow to be only 3 feet tall and weigh up to 80 pounds. This subspecies is protected due to dwindling numbers. The key deer are easy targets for coyotes who roam the forested regions of the state. Black bears are also present, but the bears rarely take to hunting down large prey. Black bears spend much of their time foraging for fruits and insects, or raiding easy meal locations like birds' nests. The state has a healthy population of bobcats that keep the numbers of smaller animals manageable.
As in most states of the Northeast, Connecticut has a variety of forest-dwelling critters that hold the potential to become pest animals. Raccoons, skunks, opossums, rats, mice, bats, gophers, woodchucks, weasels, minks, and beavers are all occupants of the state. Connecticut has lemmings, small, elusive rodents that have gotten a reputation for mass suicides. These communal death marches are a misnomer; the lemming will sometimes migrate in numbers during the breeding season. Because the animals are good swimmers, they will often attempt to cross waters where a significant number of them drown. They are not throwing themselves off cliffs for no apparent reason.
Though access to the ocean is had by way of a protected region of water, Connecticut has a number of marine animals including manatees and harbor seals.
