Stand-off with a Skunk in Middletown, Connecticut

I recently read about a man who encountered a skunk on his patio in Middletown, Connecticut. His comment was, "It was the last thing I expected to see in the heart of Middletown. What the $*@# is it doing here anyway?!"

Many people are surprised to learn that wildlife is very much a part of urban and suburban life in Connecticut and throughout the United States. Animals are here, whether we know it or not, and people often face the dilemma of how to get rid of skunks and other nuisance animals.

When people unexpectedly encounter wildlife they react in one of two ways: wonder or fear. Or both. They wonder why the animal is there. "Why would a skunk be on my patio?" They are afraid of what might happen next. "He is going to spray me!"

The good news is that if you leave the skunk alone he will usually leave you alone. Skunks spray as a last resort. If you do come upon an animal, be still or back away very slowly. Do not scream or run. Do not yell, "Scat!" and throw things at the animal. After all, throwing things sort of gives it permission to throw something at you: skunk spray.

If you are very lucky, the animal is just wandering across your property and this is a one-time adventure. Frequently, though, the animal is living on the property or very nearby or is looking for a new home. Don't make your place attractive. Don't leave out food. Maintain your home so there are no inviting holes for denning.

If the animal does decide your home is his home, we can help. We are wildlife removal specialists and know how to get rid of skunks and many other types of animals. Middletown, Connecticut hosts many critters, but you don't need to let them move in with you. We can get rid of skunks effectively and humanely so you don't have to be surprised next time you decide to step out on your back patio.

We solve many types of wildlife control conflicts in Middletown and surrounding areas. Give us a call if you need expert animal removal and/or live wildlife trapping. We can also perform an inspection of your property to evaluate the problem.

Many of the projects we solve involve raccoon families in attics and chimneys, mud swallow nests on stucco, woodpeckers drilling siding, voles and gophers destroying lawns, rats or squirrels thumping and bumping around inside walls and in attics, bat infestations, skunks stealing pet food and snakes living in crawlspaces and stone walls.

Along with physical damage and disease, wild animals also bring along disturbance and nuisance with all their noise and commotion and smell. Baby raccoons chirp and chitter like little birds; raccoons and rats will fight all night and keep people awake; skunk smell takes the cake, but have you ever smelled a dead animal in your ventilation system? We have seen much, much more than these problems, but that is a general idea of the kinds of problems that my professional wildlife removal operators and I are prepared to solve.

Not only do my technicians and I trap and remove problem wild animals, we do a lot of other dirty work, too. Don't hesitate to call us for dead animal removal, pigeon waste cleanup, bat guano removal, mouse droppings, decontamination, repairs, above ground and below ground rodent slick fencing, odor control for skunk spray, and the like. We are a full service pest control company with a wide range of animal control solutions.

I have been in the professional wildlife control business for many years. My favorite stories and experiences are removing bats from schools and churches.

For pigeon and bird control, bat removal, or relief from other pest animals, call our wildlife management experts. Many nuisance wildlife companies offer critter capture and control; our wildlife operators provide professional pest wild animal management. We remove the following AND MORE:

  • Bats from attics, eaves and belfries
  • Pigeons from rooftops
  • Swallow nests from eaves, stucco, log siding, and exterior walls
  • Voles that tear and dig up lawns and destroy root systems
  • Moles and gophers that damage golf courses and gardens
  • Mice from basements, attics, walls, crawlspaces, etc.
  • Feral cats from parks and neighborhoods

Woodpecker Wonderland in Middletown, Connecticut area

Hi, my name is Linda B. and I live in Middletown County, Connecticut. Like many other people in this area, I enjoy bird watching and have quite a log of local species. Did you know that there are at least seven different species of woodpecker that live in this area? Red-headed Woodpecker, Red-bellied Woodpecker, Yellow-bellied Sapsucker, Downy Woodpecker, Hairy Woodpecker, Black-backed Woodpecker & Pileated Woodpecker. It is quite a list.

Obviously, Middlesex County has great woodpecker habitat, but in spite of all the trees available, sometimes these birds decide to attack someone's home. That is what happened to my friend Carol. She figured I knew about birds and came to me for advice on how to get rid of woodpeckers.

Year after year a bird would return and peck a hole in the wood siding of her home. She would patch and paint, but it would return each spring. Each year it grew worse. She put up a bird house right next to his favorite place in the siding, but the bird ignored the gesture and, rat-a-tat, a new hole in the house.

I explained to her that the creature likes to drill on the house because it makes a great sound. "I know," she replied bitterly. "I hear it every morning starting about six."

"But, these birds are federally protected and can't be harmed without you getting into a lot of trouble," I said. She told me that she didn't really care what the government thought, she wanted to get rid of the woodpecker by whatever means necessary.

I could tell she needed help of some kind so I started looking around for options. I found out that it is possible to get rid of woodpeckers without killing them. Professional wildlife control operators have a number of options including non-lethal physical and chemical deterrents that will get rid of the woodpeckers without harming them.

She was glad and I was glad. It is nice to know that there are helpful people who can help Carol and keep Connecticut full of these interesting birds at the same time.
