Well we have heard it all about Raccoons, and we can help solve your raccoon problem

Management of Problem Raccoons:  Because of their ability to coexist with humans, raccoons can become a nuisance when they damage gardens, raid garbage cans or inhabit human structures like your attic and chimney. They can be especially destructive in your attic, where they ruin insulation, make latrines, damage electrical wires and cause odors. Because of their susceptibility to rabies, problem raccoons cannot be relocated. However, some raccoon problems can be controlled without trapping. We can control and trap raccoons that are damaging your property. To  trap and remove raccoons in Greenwich, Stamford, New Canaan, Darien, Norwalk, Wilton, Weston, Westport, Fairfield, Easton, Newtown, Monroe, Trumbull, Stratford or Milford call

Interesting Facts: Raccoons are  most closely related to the dog (Canidae) and bear (Ursidae) families. They have keen senses of hearing, sight and touch, but taste and smell are less well developed. Raccoons have dexterous feet, are excellent  climbers and can descend a tree head first or climb your house and enter your attic or chimney. They are extremely strong for their size. Raccoons are primarily nocturnal but occasionally venture out in the daytime. In late fall and winter, raccoons may "den up" in my attic or my chimney during the coldest periods; however, this is not true hibernation, and they will wander out during warm spells. The den is most often in a chimney, but raccoons will also use attics, boats, old cars, buildings, wood piles, under shed, or under my deck.
Generally, raccoons are not social but some pairs and families do travel together in Connecticut Fairfield County Greenwich, Stamford, New  Canaan, Darien, Norwalk, Wilton, Weston, Westport, Fairfield, Easton,  Newtown, Monroe, Trumbull, Stratford and Milford.
The raccoon has been an economically important furbearer in Connecticut due to its abundance and pelt value. Raccoons are harvested each year during the regulated hunting and trapping seasons, providing recreation for many Connecticut sportsmen and helping to control local raccoon  populations, but in Fairfield county Connecticut trapping is very limited and they are over abundant in Connecticut Fairfield County  Greenwich, Stamford, New Canaan, Darien, Norwalk, Wilton, Weston,  Westport, Fairfield, Easton, Newtown, Monroe, Trumbull, Stratford and Milford.
Raccoons, especially large populations, prey on birds and their nests. In Connecticut Fairfield County Greenwich, Stamford, New Canaan, Darien, Norwalk, Wilton, Weston, Westport, Fairfield, Easton, Newtown, Monroe,  Trumbull, Stratford and Milford, they often raid bluebird boxes that are  not protected with predator guards. They also are problematic for herons and egrets on offshore islands where repeated predation can cause  abandonment of the entire colony.  To trap and  remove raccoons in Greenwich, Stamford, New Canaan, Darien, Norwalk,  Wilton, Weston, Westport, Fairfield, Easton, Newtown, Monroe, Trumbull,  Stratford or Milford call Connecticut Wild Things LLC in Stamford, CT  203.602.3343 Norwalk, CT 203.854.4848 or Stratford, CT 203.375.1211.

Management of Problem Raccoons:  Because of their ability to coexist with humans, raccoons can become a  nuisance when they damage gardens, raid garbage cans or inhabit human  structures like attic and chimney. They can be especially destructive in  your attic, where they ruin insulation, make latrines, damage  electrical wires and cause odors. Because of their susceptibility to  rabies, problem raccoons cannot be relocated. However, some raccoon  problems can be controlled without trapping. We can control and trap  raccoons that are damaging your property.  To  trap and remove raccoons in Greenwich, Stamford, New Canaan, Darien,  Norwalk, Wilton, Weston, Westport, Fairfield, Easton, Newtown, Monroe,  Trumbull, Stratford or Milford call Connecticut Wild Things LLC in  Stamford, CT 203.602.3343 Norwalk, CT 203.854.4848 or Stratford, CT  203.375.1211

To deter raccoons from raiding garbage cans, several modifications can  be made. Snaps can be attached to the lid and the handle can be secured  to a stake driven into the ground. Placing cans in wooden bins or in the  garage may also eliminate raccoon raiding problems.
 

Pet food should not be left outside where  it is available to raccoons. Bird feeders should be placed away from  trees or other structures that can be climbed by raccoons.

Raccoons can easily access roofs by climbing trees, downspouts, vines,  electrical service wires or a trellis located near the house. Therefore,  to prevent raccoons from entering house attic, roofs and chimneys  should be well-maintained.  Replace loose shingles so the do not live in your attic, repair any holes near the eaves of the roof so they do not live in attic and  securely place a chimney cap over the chimney so they do not live in  chimney. Limiting the access to the roof by trimming trees and shrubs may also be helpful.

The simplest and most effective, permanent solution to the problem of  raccoons living in a chimney is to cap it. However, there may be young  present, depending on the time of year. If the young are old enough to  climb out, we can trap all the raccoons outside of the chimney then we  can cap the chimney. Sometimes, a female raccoon can be encouraged to  move her young to another location by the use of repellents, we can do  this by applying our biological control agent and then monitor the activity, once the raccoons leave your chimney we can cap your chimney  with an approved chimney cap.
 

Electric fences may help to keep raccoons  out of gardens. The wires must be spaced close together and close to the  ground in order to be effective.  We can rent temporary electric fences  to you or we can install a permanent effective fence for repelling  raccoons for your garden.  To install and service electric fences for raccoons in Greenwich, Stamford, New Canaan,  Darien, Norwalk, Wilton, Weston, Westport, Fairfield, Easton, Newtown,  Monroe, Trumbull, Stratford or Milford call Connecticut Wild Things LLC  in Stamford, CT 203.602.3343 Norwalk, CT 203.854.4848 or Stratford, CT  203.375.1211
 

We can remove any raccoon if they are living in an attic, living under a  deck, living in a chimney, living in a boat, living in a garage, living  in a shed or killing your animals.  We can trap them, shoot them or  repel them.  To trap and remove raccoons in  Greenwich, Stamford, New Canaan, Darien, Norwalk, Wilton, Weston,  Westport, Fairfield, Easton, Newtown, Monroe, Trumbull, Stratford or  Milford call Connecticut Wild Things LLC in Stamford, CT 203.602.3343  Norwalk, CT 203.854.4848 or Stratford, CT 203.375.1211
 

Raccoon Rabies: Since  "raccoon rabies" reached Connecticut in March, 1991, thousands of  raccoons have become infected. Other species, including dogs, cats,  skunks, foxes, woodchucks and livestock, have also been infected. The  following symptoms may indicate the presence of rabies, distemper or other diseases in raccoons or other mammals: unprovoked aggression,  impaired movement, paralysis or lack of coordination, unusually friendly  behavior and disorientation. Just because a nocturnal animal like the  raccoon is active during daylight hours doesn’t necessarily mean that it  is sick. Raccoons often adjust their feeding schedules, especially in  the spring when rearing their young. Contact with any wild or stray  animal should be avoided, especially if it is behaving abnormally.
Raccoons may also serve as host to a number  of other disease pathogens which are transmissible to humans and  domestic animals, including trichinosis, tuberculosis, round worm,  infectious enteritis and coccidiosis. To trap and  remove raccoons in Greenwich, Stamford, New Canaan, Darien, Norwalk, Wilton, Weston, Westport, Fairfield, Easton, Newtown, Monroe, Trumbull,  Stratford or Milford call Connecticut Wild Things LLC in Stamford, CT  203.602.3343 Norwalk, CT 203.854.4848 or Stratford, CT 203.375.1211
 

Identification: The Fairfield county Greenwich,  Stamford, New Canaan, Darien, Norwalk, Wilton, Weston, Westport,  Fairfield, Easton, Newtown, Monroe, Trumbull, Stratford and Milford  raccoon is a medium-sized mammal distinguished by a black mask across  the eyes and cheeks and black rings around the bushy tail. The long,  thick fur gives raccoons a typical gray-brown color, with variations  ranging from sienna to silver. Other characteristics include short,  pointed ears and a long, pointed snout. Have you seen one in your attic  or chimney?
 

Range: Raccoons range from Canada and throughout the  United States (excluding the high elevations of the Rocky Mountains and  much of the Southwest) into Mexico and Central America. They are common  throughout Connecticut in Fairfield County Greenwich, Stamford, New  Canaan, Darien, Norwalk, Wilton, Weston, Westport, Fairfield, Easton,  Newtown, Monroe, Trumbull, Stratford and Milford.

Reproduction: Raccoons breed in late winter or early spring;  the males do not remain with the female after breeding. The young are  born in April or May in my attic after a 63-day gestation period.  Females produce one litter per year, with an average of four cubs per  litter then you have a family of raccoons in your attic. The cubs are  born blind, helpless and are covered with yellowish-gray fur. After 30  to 40 days, the cubs leave the den and will travel with the female for  short distances to search for food in the following towns Fairfield  County Greenwich, Stamford, New Canaan, Darien, Norwalk, Wilton, Weston,  Westport, Fairfield, Easton, Newtown, Monroe, Trumbull, Stratford and  Milford. At three to four months, the cubs begin to forage on their own  but they will still live in Fairfield County Greenwich, Stamford, New  Canaan, Darien, Norwalk, Wilton, Weston, Westport, Fairfield, Easton,  Newtown, Monroe, Trumbull, Stratford and Milford.  To  trap and remove raccoons in Greenwich, Stamford, New Canaan, Darien, Norwalk, Wilton, Weston, Westport, Fairfield, Easton, Newtown, Monroe,  Trumbull, Stratford or Milford call Connecticut Wild Things LLC in  Stamford, CT 203.602.3343 Norwalk, CT 203.854.4848 or Stratford, CT  203.375.1211

History in Connecticut and Fairfield County: Since the late  1800's, Connecticut’s expanding human population has probably benefited  this opportunistic species of raccoon; concentrations of people provide  easy access to such food sources as garbage, gardens and bird feeders  and shelter like in my attic and in my chimney. Raccoons are now  abundant in both urban and rural areas throughout Connecticut Fairfield  County Greenwich, Stamford, New Canaan, Darien, Norwalk, Wilton, Weston, Westport, Fairfield, Easton, Newtown, Monroe, Trumbull, Stratford and  Milford.
