If you have a problem with wildlife in your Middletown 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 Middletown, and I recommend the following:
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Middlesex County Animal Services: (860) 638-4030
Suburban 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 Suburban 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 860-498-4085 to discuss your critter problem and schedule a same-day or next-day appointment. Click here to learn more about what prices we charge in 2020.
When hiring a company to solve your wild animal problem, you want these features:
Suburban Wildlife is a full-service Middletown wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Middletown pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all
similar to wildlife removal. Suburban 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.
Middletown 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 Middletown raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
Animals in attics - this is our specialty at Suburban 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 Middletown 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 Middletown 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 Middletown 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 Middletown pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Middletown 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 Middletown trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Middletown 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. Suburban Wildlife does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by Suburban 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. Suburban Wildlife also provides dead animal removal in Middletown. 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 Middletown 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 Middletown. And remember, we are a private business, not Middlesex County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at (860) 638-4030. Middlesex 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: $100 on up
Medium Job: For example, getting critters out of your house with minor repairs: $300 on up
Large Job: For example, a project involving many service trips and complex work: $500 on up
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.
Middletown Wildlife Tip #1:
What pest control company handles unwanted nuisance wild animals? - Do you have a problem with a rather pesky unwanted nuisance wild animal? If you do, there is no need to panic, you just need to call the professionals, and in this case, you are going to want to look for a pest control company or a wildlife control expert. Of course, you could always try and catch the critter yourself, but unless you are willing to do your research, there is a good chance that you will not be successful. Thankfully, with a little bit of research, you will find plenty of wildlife control companies and professionals in your area, and all you need to do is have a look around. The phone book may prove to be helpful; as will be the internet, but there will be a few things that you will need to take a look for: Firstly, have a look around the company's website and also on the search engine for reviews of the services they have to offer. A bad review will not always mean a bad service, of course, but if there are a few, it may be wise to look elsewhere. You will find that there is more than one way to skin a cat, as the old saying goes, and you will want to find the right person to deal with your problem in the right manner. Secondly, what does the company actually offer with their services? Some companies will offer a full service which will normally include the trapping and removal of your unwanted nuisance wild animal problem, as well as a cleanup operation to remove urine and feces, as well as blocking all holes and entrances to avoid the problem from being a reoccurring one. Some other companies however, will only offer some of these services, and they may not always be the best choice. Lastly, take a look around for prices - some companies may offer you a good deal, but you may not find that the service will be right for you. At the same time, a more expensive service doesn't always guarantee complete success.
Middletown Wildlife Tip #2:
Do Wild animals Have Rabies - Rabies is a disease that has long been associated with stray dogs and raccoons, but it is fair to say that there are many different types of animals that can carry the disease, which is one that can be transmitted to humans. Much like any other animal, wild animals can be infected with rabies and can carry the disease, but it is worth noting that they aren't considered to be a particular threat as the percentage of animals with the disease is very small indeed. However, for anyone that is bitten by a wild animal, it is always good advice to go to a doctor and be checked for rabies, as it can be a very harmful condition indeed. One aspect that is worth mentioning when looking at the diseases that are carried by wild animals is that they are known as carriers of the disease that can lead to leprosy in humans. This is only to be found in a relatively small number of the wild animal population, and it is still very rare for this to be transmitted to humans. Indeed, the cases where transmission has occurred in recent years have all been linked with the consumption of wild animal meat that has been undercooked.
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.
You can always call Suburban Wildlife, any time of day, at 860-498-4085, for a price quote for Middletown wildlife control services. I am confident that this is the best choice amongst wildlife removal companies in Middletown, CT.
