New Haven County Wildlife Removal Tip:

What To Do When A Rodent Home Is In Your Home - Rodents in your home can cause many problems that you may not be aware of for some time after you have dealt with the infestation. Tell-tale signs of unwanted visitors in your home may include associated noises of scratching, and even gnawing. If you suspect rodents have taken up residence in your home you should take steps to observe their comings and goings - usually first thing in the morning. This will confirm your suspicions and enable you to confirm the routes they are using. As the rodents enter and exit your home you should be able to identify their favorite route. This will be your targeted area for trapping.

Once you have established the favored route of the rodents you should place a trap, unset, by the entry, with some appropriate bait just outside. Leave the unset trap in place for a few days before moving the bait inside and leaving it for a further day or two. While the rodents are becoming accustomed to the trap take the time to ensure that your home is rodent proof - correctly seal and block every entry and exit way you have discovered the rodents using, leaving the single entry open. Once you have done this you can set the trap and wait to catch and deal with your unwanted visitors.

Animal Control - Mice and rat seen wandering along Waterbury street

Allan Brown and his 16-year-old son were shocked to see a Mice and rat leisurely walking down their street last weekend. For more information, call the animal services of Waterbury, Connecticut.

"We were driving up the hill when the Mice and rat stopped in the middle of the road and looked at us," said Brown, of Snow Apple Lane. "It didn't look like it was in a hurry to get away from us." New Haven County animal control says it will continue to help with domestic animal issues, but not with Connecticut wildlife problems.

Pat Liptak, the city's animal control officer, said she has been receiving Mice and rat sightings in the city for more than a year. "Most of the reports are from more rural areas," she said. "It's not something that we're too concerned about. "We London't received any reports of Mice and rats attacking humans. They usually tend to stay away from people." Animal and carcass removal services in New Haven County is dedicated to helping Connecticut and Waterbury.

State Department of Environmental Protection wildlife biologist Paul The Nature Guy said increased sightings does not mean there is an increased Mice and rat population, but that the animals are getting used to residential neighborhoods. New Haven County animal services in Waterbury, Connecticut, declined to comment on the matter.
