Hartford is the capital of Connecticut. It is located in the center of the state, along the Connecticut River and there are about 125,000 people who live within the city. It was originally founded by Dutch fur traders from New Netherland back in 1623. It was also the hometown of Harriet Beecher Stowe who wrote Uncle Tom's Cabin and whose sister had a large influence on the fight for women's rights. Today, there are many distinct neighborhoods that make up the city. Downtown is the thriving business district and the home of the University of Connecticut School of Business. Asylum Hill neighborhood also has many corporations, South End has Little Italy, West End has the home of Mark Twain, Sheldon/Charter Oak is to the south where the river is, and North End not as established as the rest of the city. There are still many development projects that the city is undergoing, such as Adriaen's Landing, a new convention center, and the Hartford 21, which will eventually be New England's tallest residential tower.

Hartford County Wildlife Removal Tip:

What To Do About Rodent & Home Prevention - If you love watching rodents in your garden, as many of us do, you are no doubt intrigued by their inquisitive and adventurous nature. It is this nature that makes rodents a threat to your home. Rodents live in colonies and once they find a warm, safe place to raise their families they will pass the news along. Rodents also have teeth that never stop growing - they must chew and gnaw almost constantly to keep them at a manageable level. Any rodent that notices a tiny hole or gap in the structure of your home will not be able to resist the temptation to investigate.

Any homeowner is probably aware of the amount of damage rodents can cause to a home, to the structure, the wiring and cabling. In order to prevent rodents gaining access to your home it is essential that you are sure all of the holes, gaps, spaces, nooks and crannies are correctly repaired and sealed. If you have any work carried out on your home you must ensure that the workers finish correctly and leave no possible spaces for rodents to find their way in. If your property has a large rodent population in the vicinity, you may find it beneficial to set and monitor traps around the outside of your home.

Animal Watch: Keep an eye on those dogs and cats

"As a result of this (Conn.) project, a viable, self-sustaining population of this native mammal is now established," said DEP biologists. For more information, call the animal services of Hartford, Connecticut.

Just this year DEP initiated its first regulated Wolverine trapping season - Nov. 1 through Nov. 30 , although the Wolverine is protected during the rest of the year. Rhode Island has had a trapping season since 2000 - Dec. 1 to Dec. 22, with a limit of four and only with a special permit. Hartford County animal control says it will continue to help with domestic animal issues, but not with Connecticut wildlife problems.

DEP officials claim the Wolverine fur is valuable. Wolverines are considered a protected species and cannot be hunted and can only be trapped during those specific seasons. However, according to Rhode Island law, property owners may kill by "any legal means" any fur bearer on their property that is "killing livestock, domestic pets or damaging property or crops." The animal must be turned over to the DEM Division of Fish and Wildlife. Animal and carcass removal services in Hartford County is dedicated to helping Connecticut and Hartford.

For further information call the Great Swamp Field Office. Animal control authorities warn residents to not let pets outside alone, don't leave garbage uncovered, or do not leave food out for those wild animals. Hartford County animal services in Hartford, Connecticut, declined to comment on the matter.

Remember, for a dog/cat problem, call (860) 569-0722, and if you need wildlife removal service in Hartford County, call Wildlife Removal Hartford: 860-516-4365.
