Suburban Wildlife is a full-service Cheshire wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Cheshire 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.
Cheshire 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 Cheshire 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 Cheshire 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 Cheshire 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 Cheshire 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 Cheshire pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Cheshire 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 Cheshire trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Cheshire 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 Cheshire. 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 Cheshire 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 Cheshire. 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 203-271-5590. 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.
Cheshire Wildlife Tip #1:
Is it against the law to kill a raccoon?
Raccoons are a cute little animal, but they are also one that can be quite destructive around your home. And they are a mischievous little critter that will create all kinds of havoc if left to its own accord, and this is why you need to take action to remove this animal from your property if it is coming around.
Frequently raccoons will get into such things as your garbage can or food of your pet, but they can also be dangerous. It is not that they are necessarily aggressive, as much as the fact that they carry a number of diseases that pose a risk to you and your family, including rabies. This is why you need to take action to protect you and your family and termination of the raccoon maybe one choice you are considering.
While this may seem like a viable option to you, the reality is that it may not be lawful. For centuries after Europeans came to this continent raccoons were hunted, almost to near extinction in some areas. This forced many state and county governments to protect the raccoon to ensure that the species would remain.
What this tells you is that you may live in a state or region where hunting raccoons is not lawful. While they may understand that you don't want this critter around your property, they are still not giving you authority to kill this animal. This means that if you do so you could face stiff penalties and even a little jail time. That honestly doesn't sound like a worthwhile option for a crummy raccoon.
You may even find that in some areas that trapping a raccoon is not even lawful. This limits what you can do to get rid of them, with the most viable option being that you have to stop them from coming onto your property altogether.
If you want to know for sure whether it is legal for you to be able to hunt and kill raccoons in this way, it pays for you to contact your local animal control agency. They will be able to provide you with detailed information related to the laws of hunting any wild animal.
What you may find is that raccoons are not the only animal that is protected in your area. In some areas bats are even protected, because they are facing a dwindling population across the southern part of the United States. It may seem odd, but this is what the government has allocated as options to protect these animals.
Once again, it is really not to your advantage to take any kind of risk that could wind up putting you in jail. Make sure that you contact the proper agencies who can let you know what is lawful or at least direct you to where you can find the laws related to hunting and killing raccoons. This is really the only sensible thing for you to do to protect yourself.

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.
