If you have a problem with wildlife in your Waterbury 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 Waterbury, and I recommend the following:
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call New Haven County Animal Services: 203-397-8413
American Bio-Tech Wildlife Services 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 American Bio-Tech Wildlife Services 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 860-661-4413 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:
American Bio-Tech Wildlife Services is a full-service Waterbury wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Waterbury pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all
similar to wildlife removal. American Bio-Tech Wildlife Services 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.
Waterbury 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 Waterbury raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
Animals in attics - this is our specialty at American Bio-Tech Wildlife Services. 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 Waterbury 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 Waterbury 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 Waterbury 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 Waterbury pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Waterbury 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 Waterbury trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Waterbury 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. American Bio-Tech Wildlife Services does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by American Bio-Tech Wildlife Services. 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. American Bio-Tech Wildlife Services also provides dead animal removal in Waterbury. 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 Waterbury 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 Waterbury. And remember, we are a private business, not New Haven County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at 203-397-8413. New Haven 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.
Waterbury Wildlife Tip #1:
What do you do with a squirrel you trapped - Choosing the experts over doing it yourself? - Have you found a squirrel living in your home or yard? If you have then you have two main choices - you can either choose to catch this creature yourself and release or exterminate it, or you can call upon the assistance of a professional to give you a hand. Of course, there will be both pros and cons for both, and these are things that you are going to need to figure out before you make your final decision. Starting with "going it alone", you will find that once you have done the job properly by buying the right traps, getting the right bait and figuring out what to do with the animal once you have caught it, you could actually save money. However, in order to get all of the little parts of catching the animal right, you are going to need to do your research which can take a lot of time. If you don't get it right first time, or get carried away with the "toys" sold on the market designed to remove or repel the creatures, you will find that in the long run, it could actually cost you more.

Waterbury Wildlife Tip #2:
Opossum noises - defeat the beast! - Sick of possums living uninvited into your home? You're done trying to encourage the thing to leave; you've already tried radios, sprinkler systems, lights, deterrent liquids, electronic gadgets - all to no avail. It's time to give up your "soft" hands and put your war cap on. You WILL defeat this beast! You are going to need to have a plan. No captain can go into war, especially against a beast of this nature, without at least having a game plan! That's the trick to defeating the humble possum - you are going to need education on your side. So, what helpful tips are going to help you beat the possum in the war over your yard or home? Well, the first of these is, of course, to know when the possum is going to be at its most mobile. They are nocturnal, so you will usually find that the creature will be leaving your home or yard at around 9-11pm at night, and returning back to the comfort of their bed at around 4-6am. This means that whatever removal method you are going for, this is the time to put your plans into action. If you are looking for a lure or bait for your removal war tactics, you should look towards pet food. The possum loves to steal the food from right under your pets nose, so use this evil habit against the animal! You could also throw in some fruit, especially the real juicy, sugary ones; they seem to love that. They also love human leftovers, so really, you have many things at your disposal.
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.
