Bridgeport, Connecticut Swallow Problems

Tell someone you have swallow problems and they will probably refer you to a doctor who will suggest that this is a symptom of everything from pharynx muscle disturbance to Parkinson\'s Disease. But, that is not the sort of swallow problems that plague many Americans.

The problems I am referring to are related to bug-eating, fast-flying, nest-building BIRDS. People with these sorts of problems want to get rid of swallows and seek help of a different sort from a Wildlife Control Operator who can diagnose and solve it with the professionalism of a doctor, and before circumstances combine to require medical help.

Swallows are nimble, sleek birds that like to build their nests where there is:
a) open space for their insect hunts,
b) a covered, vertical surface for nest attachment such as the overhang of a roof,
c) mud,
d) water.

Unfortunately, they bring with them a host of problems that make people want to get rid of swallows on their property.

The nests damage and deface homes and office buildings. Extra clean-up costs and concern over liability comes, too, as the swallow feces ends up on the ground below the colony. It doesn\'t just give a dirty image, but there is the real risk of slip-and-fall injury or serious disease. Swallow droppings and nests carry histoplasmosis, encephalitis, salmonella, meningitis, toxoplasmosis and more.

The nests are located in places requiring the use of ladders or scaffolding for access, and that has risks, too.

Because of their migratory habits and voracious mosquito appetites, these birds are federally protected. Once they have eggs or young in the nest, they can\'t be disturbed until the end of the nesting season. Act quickly in the Spring, or aggressively in the later parts of Summer and early Fall to get rid of swallows and prevent a repeat performance next year.

Don\'t let swallow problems drive you to the doctors. Get rid of swallows with the right kind of help!

We solve many types of wildlife control conflicts in Bridgeport 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.

  • Bats from attics, eaves and belfries

  • 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

Rascal raccoons ransack residence in Bridgeport, Connecticut

BRIDGEPORT A band of rascal raccoon s recently ransacked a local residence in their efforts to find a place to raise their young.

Jacob Wright, owner of the ransacked home, said the raccoon s entered his attic by removing the mesh around his exhaust fan and bending the metal fan. They made a mess of his attic and insulation.

\"I don\'t think people realize how strong they are,\" said Wright. \"I have only lived in my home for three years, and every year I have had a family trying to den in my attic. I guess I am listed in the Coon Yellow Pages as a five-star hotel for the taking.\"

Wright said the first family of raccoons got into the attic by tearing off some of the shingles on the roof and ripping off the covering underneath.

\"I heard strange noises like there was a small animal like a cat or dog running around in my attic,\" Wright said. \"I had no idea what was going on.\"

Wright said he listened for a few more minutes, climbed out of bed, and took a flashlight up to the attic.

\"I didn\'t see anything, but I knew that there was something up there,\" he said. The next day Wright climbed up on the roof and found the area where the animals had entered the attic. He waited until the next night until he thought the animals had gone out hunting and patched up the hole.

\"I remember thinking that I was pretty smart and was very proud that I had solved the problem all on my own,\" laughed Wright.

But of course, the raccoon s just ripped off the patching and got back in. Wright said he was shocked.

\"At first I couldn\'t believe it,\" he laughed, \"But then I figured that I probably didn\'t know what I was doing and decided to call animal control.\"

But to Wright\'s disappointment, Animal Control said they really couldn\'t do much about it.

\"It was extremely frustrating,\" said Wright. \"I was angry. I remember thinking, how am I supposed to get rid of these raccoons, then?\"

Wright said he did a search on the internet and found a local wild animal removal technician who specialized in raccoon removal.

\"The guy came out and did his thing,\" said Wright. \"He trapped a large adult female within the first hour and then caught the babies quickly. He also repaired the area assuring me that this should take care of the problem.\"

Wright said he was relieved and didn\'t think twice about it, until the next year when another family of raccoons came back. This time they got in through the eaves of Wright\'s home.

\"I remembered thinking, There is no way that this is happening to me again,\' yet, it was,\" said Wright.

He contacted the same raccoon removal specialist with his concerns. \"Let\'s just say I wasn\'t very polite,\" said Wright.

The specialist told Wright that the raccoons were probably the cubs of a raccoon litter that were successfully raised in the home before Wright purchased it and that unfortunately this was probably not the last time that he would need to deal with the problem.

\"I was livid. If I had known that raccoons had lived in the home before, I wouldn\'t have purchased it,\" said Wright.

Wright said he is still in a legal battle with the previous owner trying to get compensated for all of the costs associated with the damage the raccoons continue to reek on his property.

\"I would love to just up and leave,\" said Wright. \"But until I can get this worked out, I don\'t want anyone else to have to deal with the problem.\"
