Connecticut Bat exclusion winter 2018-2019

For Bat exclusions call 860-510-6313 

I am getting many bat in the house calls this winter. I believe it is because of our weather pattern in Connecticut this year. I have been called out for a bat in the bedroom of Clinton, Bat in the bathroom in Madison, Bat in the living room in Branford. Had a bat in the fireplace in Haddam and Old Lyme.

I have a list growing for bat exclusion in Hamden and other towns. In Connecticut Bat removal usually has to wait until spring. Bats are hibernating right now and the reason the bats are moving around in the house is do to our temperature shifts. It should slow down with the cold weather that must be coming soon. Bats will get lost occasionally when moving around in winter.

If you find a bat in the living space in the wintertime it is a good chance you have a bat problem in the home. Big Brown bats are the usual suspects when bats get in the house in winter. Big Brown Bats are known to hibernate in attics and walls. If they move during a weather change they can sound like mice in the wall or mice in the ceiling. Unlike mice usually when you bang on a wall or ceiling you hear bat noise in the bats will continue moving. Mice will usually freeze with a loud noise and Flying squirrels or gray squirrels will run. If you think you have bats in the attic, squirrels in the wall give RF Wildlife a call 860-510-6313

Skunk Breeding season

My first skunk removal calls for the year typically start around Valentines day. Since being in business like clockwork I would get a few calls on Valentines day. This year that did not happen. The extreme winter is most likely to blame. Temperatures at night are well below freezing, with negative wind chills. ¬†Shoreline towns such as Old Saybrook, Essex, Madison, Clinton, Old Lyme have over twelve inches of snow pack making movement for skunks difficult. Skunk removal’s in these towns are normally my first of the season due to the fact we tend to have less snow, and slightly warmer temps. City skunks also seem to be hunkered down. Skunk removal in West Haven, New Haven, Hamden, Branford is typically active all year. Towards the end of February Durham, Haddam, and Middletown skunk removal calls are very active.

Skunk removal calls come at two times a year mostly, the skunk breeding season in February, and when the young skunks start leaving the den in June. Now that skunks seem to be running late this year Skunk removals will probably pick up late June into July. Fourth of July picnics may have some unwelcome guests this year due to this. Young skunks are active at any time near the den site. Young skunk spray just as much if not more than older skunks. The spray is not as potent as an adult, but still stinks. Skunk control in Essex CT picks up during the summer. Skunk control calls in Madison, Old Saybrook, Westbrook, Clinton ,Old Lyme also pick up at this time when cottages are opened for the season.  Call 860-510-6313 for any skunk related Problems.
