If you have a problem with wildlife in your Vernon 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 Vernon, and I recommend the following:
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Tolland County Animal Services: 860-569-1066
Nuisance Management 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 Nuisance Management 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 860-266-2580 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:
Nuisance Management is a full-service Vernon wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Vernon pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all
similar to wildlife removal. Nuisance Management 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.
Vernon 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 Vernon raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
Animals in attics - this is our specialty at Nuisance Management. 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 Vernon 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 Vernon 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 Vernon 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 Vernon pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Vernon 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 Vernon trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Vernon 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. Nuisance Management does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by Nuisance Management. 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. Nuisance Management also provides dead animal removal in Vernon. 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 Vernon 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 Vernon. And remember, we are a private business, not Tolland County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at 860-569-1066. Tolland 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.
Vernon Wildlife Tip #1:
What happens to the groundhog after removal? - Do you love animals? If you do then you might want to know what happens to that wild groundhog that unfortunately caused quite a stir in your garden or yard. Most people probably wouldn't care what happens to the creature as long as it was no longer a problem in their lives, but in reality, it is always nice to know for your own peace of mind at least, that the animal has gone somewhere where it could live a long and prosperous life, as long as it wasn't giving you any more grief! The thing about releasing groundhogs it that it needs to be done so with caution. Place the animal too far away from where it was found and it could run into problems, such as becoming prey to undue predators, not being able to find food, not being able to find a place to call its home, and even becoming victim to accidents with cars. These are all things that a fully qualified wildlife control expert will try to avoid as best as possible. It will relocate the animal in a place that is not too far from where it was originally found, and although you may believe that this will enable the creature to come back, the expert should potentially be groundhog-proofing your home at the same time, or at least educating you so that this wild animal, as well as many others like it, can no longer be a problem.
Vernon Wildlife Tip #2:
Wild animal Smell Under Your House - One of the frustrating things that many people who have trapped an wild animal and removed it from the property will find is that people will often find an unpleasant smell from the cavity under the house. The most common reason for this will happen when people are trapping wild animals in the spring, which is when wild animals actually give birth to their young and their activities are often most noticeable to people. Many people will capture the mother without actually ensuring that there are no young wild animals, and when these creatures die then their carcasses will often begin to decompose and cause a significant smell. This is why it is always recommended to refer to a professional when you have an wild animal problem, as they will be able to check in the likely places to make sure there are no young animals to worry about. However, if you are finding the smell and the wild animal has been removed for some time, then it may be necessary to go under the house and to remove the carcasses of these young wild animals. Once these have been removed professionals will often have products which will decontaminate the area and help to get rid of the smell permanently.
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 Nuisance Management, any time of day, at 860-266-2580, for a price quote for Vernon wildlife control services. I am confident that this is the best choice amongst wildlife removal companies in Vernon, CT.
