How We Solve Fairfield Wildlife Problems
It starts with your phone call. We answer our phones 24/7, and we will carefully listen to your wildlife problem. Every case is different, so we will ask appropriate questions to help
us understand the situation better. Questions like, "do you hear the noises at night or during the daytime?" or "what type of roof do you have?" After we have a general idea of your
situation, we can provide a ballpark price range, and schedule a same-day or next-day appointment to inspect your property.
INSPECTION: Once on site, we will perform a full inspection of your home and property. This allows us to use the correct strategy and
traps. If the animals are in an attic, a full building inspection is crucial, including the following:
- All ground-level areas, such as piper or A/C line entry & exit areas, A/C chase bottoms, ground-level vents, etc.
- All mid-level areas, such as dryer vents, siding gaps, first floor eaves or dormers, etc.
- We inspect the entire roof, including all plumbing stacks, ridge caps, vents, and other potential gaps or holes.
- We also inspect inside your attic, to identify animals and damage they have caused.
- If the animals are outside, we notice many subtle clues that will assist us in a successful strategy.
TRAPPING, EXCLUSION, REMOVAL: Once we understand what animal species we are dealing with, and the problem, we use the most effective means of removing the animals. We use dozens of different types of traps.
- Trapping - If trapping the animal(s) in live cage traps, trap type, set, and location are crucial to success.
- Exclusion - Oftentimes, we are able to simply set one-way doors or other exclusion devices that allow the animals inside a building to safely exit, but never get back inside.
- Removal By Hand - Sometimes we actually remove animals by hand, or with special tools like snare poles.
- The Law - In all cases, we obey state and local laws regarding wildlife, but aim to take the most humane approach.
ENTRY HOLE REPAIRS: Repairs are a crucial step in the wildlife removal process. In many cases, such as bat or rodent control, the job cannot be performed without detailed repairs, and in
all cases, sealing the entry holes shut ensures that no future wildlife will ever enter your home.
- 100% of the entry holes must be found, and sealed shut, or the job is not complete.
- Our repairs are professional contractor grade, look good, and when applicable we use steel, which rodents such as rats or squirrels are unable to chew through.
- We give a written guarantee on our repairs against any future animal entry.
ATTIC DECONTAMINATION SERVICES: It may be desirable to clean your attic after we've removed the animals. They can leave behind large amounts of droppings,
urine, hair, oils, food, nesting material, and so on. These remnants can attract insects like cockroaches, and the scent left behind can encourage new animals to chew their way into your
house. You might experience odor problems from the waste. It's possible that mold will grow on waste areas.
- We remove or vacuum all droppings, or remove all the soiled insulation.
- We fog the attic with a special enzyme-based cleaner that destroys any organic matter and deodorizes the space.
- We repair damage, such as ductwork, electrical wires, pipes, insulation, and more.
The above are just a brief explanation of some of our methods. I haven't even addressed the hundreds of other potential cases that we deal with, from bat exclusions, to poison-free rodent control, to dead animal removal, bird roosting
prevention, mole trapping in a yard, ground-based exclusion barriers around a shed, etc. etc. Just give us a call any time, and we can describe in detail how we will resolve your specific wildlife problem.
The first thing that comes to mind when
you hear the word skunk is the odor
they secrete when they become scared.
Skunks are attracted to Fairfield County
properties by food/trash scraps and gardens.
When a skunk feels cornered or in danger it
will release an offensive odor, which is
extremely hard to get rid of. However, our
team is licensed and trained in trapping and
removing skunks as well as many other Connecticut

This month's wildlife how-to article: How To Get Rid Of House Mice
How To Get Rid Of House Mice
A mouse is an annoyance; one we definitely do not want to share our home with.
They snuff around our food, even eating them without our notice. In this process
they may transmit some serious communicable diseases. They also leave around feces
and urine everywhere they go and getting rid of the smell and the waste, along with
them is something that needs to be done. Here are some techniques that will help you
get rid of mice without killing them, as it is the humane way forward.
Get a pet!
Having a pet in home in the form of a cat or a dog will go a long way in getting rid
of house mice. While some dogs may not hunt, you will be hard pressed to find a cat who
doesn’t. If your house is swarming with mice go to the local pet shelter or a pet store
and get a cat, and let it do its thing. They have an acute sense of smell and will sniff
out and eliminate every last one of those mice.
Using a Trap
Using a trap to get rid of mice is feasible only when you have a few of them and not an
infestation. Traps can have multiple chambers, to help you catch more than one mice at a
time. The trap works such that when the mice enters the cage and chews on a bait, the trap
door closes and the mouse is trapped. You can now take the trap outside someplace and release
Exclusion is one of the most effective ways to help your homes to be free of mice. A high
quality wire mesh made out of either copper, aluminum or steel can be used to block entry
points where you suspect a mouse can enter from. It is recommended to use copper meshes as
they don’t rust and last for a longer time. These wire meshes are finely woven, making it
extremely difficult to chew through. Make sure you follow up with putting these wire meshes
when you are done getting rid of mice in any of the above following ways.
These above procedures are effective enough in keeping mice away from your house. Using
repellents does not work that much since the smell is not uniform throughout the house and
the mice will simply find a better hiding place. On the other hand, killing them using poison
or after trapping isn’t the most humane way feasible since there are so many alternate ways to
work around that will help you solve the problem.
