If you have a problem with wildlife in your Windham County 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 Windham County, and I recommend the following:
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Windham County Animal Services: (860) 465-3087
C&C Wildlife Control 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 C&C Wildlife Control 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 860-631-4295 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:
C&C Wildlife Control is a full-service Windham County wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Windham County pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all
similar to wildlife removal. C&C Wildlife Control 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.
Windham County 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 Windham County raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
Animals in attics - this is our specialty at C&C Wildlife Control. 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 Windham County 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 Windham County 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 Windham County 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 Windham County pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Windham County 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 Windham County trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Windham County 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. C&C Wildlife Control does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by C&C Wildlife Control. 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. C&C Wildlife Control also provides dead animal removal in Windham County. 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 Windham County 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 Windham County. And remember, we are a private business, not Windham County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at (860) 465-3087. Windham 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.
Windham County Wildlife Tip #1:
What can you buy to drive away fox under the shed? - Sometimes, rather than relying on traps to remove a wild animal like the fox from your home or yard; you should look towards repellants or similar options to do the job for you. The only problem with this way of thinking is that the things that you will often come across that promise to do such a job, rarely do so as well as they state they will, which can lead to mass disappointment on your part, and a rather costly trip to the wildlife control experts anyway - something you could have just in the first place before you wasted money on various repellants! There are a large number of things that have been "reported" to have worked to successfully drive away an fox from areas such as under your shed, but it makes sense to take these suggestions with a pinch of salt - one person may have found great relief, but twenty others may have rendered them useless! Moth balls are something that have been suggested for years in the fight against various wild animals and especially foxes but the fact of the matter is, this is very much a touch and go kind of situation. Your neighbor may have found relief, but there is no guarantee that you will and you could end up spending a large amount of money on the mothballs over an extended period of time, which you could have better spent on the local professionals to do the job for you!
Windham County Wildlife Tip #2:
Baby skunk sounds - Baby skunks make typical sounds when compared to other mammals of the same size. Their noises have been compared to those of a puppy, and a series of yelps, yaps, and squeals make up the bulk of the communication noises. Female skunks usually give birth around the month of May, and their litters are generally small. If you hear the sounds of baby animals beneath your home, you can be certain they are skunks by the pungent odor that will be left by the adult. You have to be careful when trapping and removing an adult that might have babies. If you suspect there is a litter of skunks beneath your porch or shed, contacting a professional can be a good way to handle the situation. The expert will be able to trap the adult and then remove the litter. The best way to take care of this type of situation is to prevent it altogether. Since you know skunks have litter around May, you know you have to get your yard cleaned up before that time. Make sure there is no debris out on the property. Fence in your garden; remove any pet food that might be sitting outside. If you have a deck, porch, or shed with an open space beneath the floor, you need to close that area immediately.
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.
