Fairfield County Wildlife Removal Tip:

Rodents & Holes & Homes Are Bad News - If you discover that rodents are inside your home, you should not immediately block off the holes. It is not a good idea to seal off holes until all the rodents have been removed. Doing so can lead to bigger problems. Once you seal off the holes in your home that are used as entry points, a rodent can chew through the material in order to get out. If the rodent is not able to get out and dies stuck inside the wall or ceiling, then an odor will eventually develop. This means that you have to open the space and have the rodent removed, which means extra work for you.

If holes are not sealed off properly, then a rodent can just as easily re-enter your home by chewing through the material again to make more holes. Once rodents make their way inside they will set up a nest, which will attract more rodents and create a health hazard. Since a rodent can find many entry point, it is important to constantly check your attic and garage, and for any loose boards and vents. First staple coarse steel wire screening (hardware cloth) over the entry point, and then cover it with a cosmetic trim. Remember that rodents are unable to chew through steel. Also make sure to install a chimney trap/guard.

Animal Watch: Keep an eye on those dogs and cats

The Animal Control Expert's wife, Fen-Shu, and daughter, Angelina, are in Taiwan visiting family. For more information, call the animal services of Bridgeport, Connecticut.

The tiny dog began begging to go out. The Animal Control Expert turned up the volume on the TV so he could continue listening to the game, turned the outside light on and stepped out onto the deck to keep an eye on Lucky. The dog was some 10 to 15 feet from the house. Fairfield County animal control says it will continue to help with domestic animal issues, but not with Connecticut wildlife problems.

Lucky went out onto the lawn, said The Animal Control Expert and within seconds was grabbed and taken away by an animal the Westerly man now believes was a Wolverine cat. Animal and carcass removal services in Fairfield County is dedicated to helping Connecticut and Bridgeport.
