Nothing is paramount to having a clean and well-kept home. Whether it may be having your trees maintained or making sure that your home and patio are cleaned properly, having a nice home helps with your happiness and overall well-being. But the sad truth for many homeowners in Milford, Connecticut is that even with a clean and well-maintained home, you can still get unwanted guests in the middle of the night looking to ruin your landscaping or flower bed, or worst seek refuge in your attic or basement.

Scott: At NCS Wildlife Solutions, we specialize in wildlife removal and wildlife proofing for both residential and commercial properties. We have over 10 years of experience dealing with wildlife in the Milford area, so we know how to deal with any situation.
Jess: What are some of the most common wildlife problems that homeowners in Milford face?
Scott: The most common wildlife problem that homeowners in Milford, Connecticut face is squirrels. Squirrels are very active in the fall and winter, which is when they're looking for food and a place to nest. They often find their way into attics and basements, where they can do a lot of damage. Other common problems include raccoons, opossums, groundhogs, chipmunks, mice, rats, bats, snakes, and the occasional deer or coyote.
Jess: What are some of the most common ways that wildlife gets into homes?
Scott: The most common way that wildlife gets into homes is through holes in the roof or gaps in the foundation. Wildlife can also get into attics through vents, chimneys, and gable vents.
Jess: Can you tell us a little bit about the process of removing wildlife from a home?
Scott: The first step is to identify where the animals are coming from and what type of animals they are. Once we know that, we can set up the appropriate traps. We then remove the animals from the property and release them back into the wild. Finally, we repair any damage that they may have caused and seal up any entry points to prevent them from coming back.
Jess: What are some of the most common mistakes that homeowners make when dealing with wildlife?
Scott: The most common mistake is trying to do it themselves. Wildlife removal is a delicate process, and if not done correctly, it can result in further damage to your home or even harm the animals. It's always best to leave it to the professionals.
