Services That Are Backed By Wildlife Control Experts

Weston Wildlife Services Provides Six General Services

Before we go on, you need to know Weston Wildlife Specialist is a Connecticut-based wildlife control company made up of Connecticut residents. When you call Weston Wildlife Specialist you get a real person answering the phone, not a messaging system of a company trying to connect you with one of many wildlife control companies in the state.

Weston Wildlife Specialist provides a wide array of services which include the following:

Nuisance Wildlife Trapping

This service includes the humane trapping of nuisance wildlife from your home, property, or place of business. We offer wildlife trapping services for the following nuisance animals: bats, beavers, birds, chipmunks, coyotes, fox, groundhogs, mice, moles, opossums, raccoons, rats, skunks, snakes, and squirrels.

Weston Wildlife Specialist always prefers live trapping nuisance wildlife that pesters your home or pets. But, there are times when a trap must be used that will humanely euthanize the offending critter. We will always inform you regarding the trap we plan to use and consider your feelings at every step of the trapping process. There are two types of traps that we use: quick-kill traps and live-holding traps.

Quick Kill Traps quickly kill the captured animal, like the small traps used to kill mice, moles, and sometimes a trap like the GREEN HORNET TRAP which quickly kills larger wildlife like squirrels or raccoons.

The Live-Holding Trap, also called a cage trap, shuts when an animal like a squirrel, raccoon, or possum steps on the treadle, or pan, located inside the trap. When the critter trips the treadle, the door, or doors, at the end(s) of the trap close. Once in the trap, we release the animal on your property, relocate it, or in the last resort, euthanize it with your permission, of course.

This raccoon was captured in a live trap. He can now be easily transported and released on your property if you so choose.
Our nuisance wildlife trapping mole experts must humanely use a quick kill trap.
At times, nuisance wildlife trapping demands using a larger kill trap like the Green Hornet Trap which we only use when absolutely necessary.

Nuisance Wildlife Removal – It’s Not That Simple In Connecticut

As noted above, we trap many types of nuisance wildlife, but what is to be done with an animal once trapped.  We can remove some trapped critters from your property and release them elsewhere. Connecticut law states if we trap a rabies-vector species, such as raccoons, skunks, and foxes, it cannot be relocated and released; it must be euthanized. The only exception is that the animal may be released on the property from which it was trapped.

Our wildlife management expert will clearly explain your options regarding removing the particular nuisance wildlife trapped on your property. But, if we cannot relocate an animal and do not want it released on your property, we must euthanize it, but we do so humanely.

If you chose to release the animal on your property, we would explain what we can do to make sure that the animal does not reenter your home, business, or buildings and make your property less habitable for the nuisance wildlife.

A rabid raccon would have difficulty walking, seem confused, make strange noises, foam at the mouth and generally not look well.
A tiny percentage of bats carry the rabies virus. Of all weak and sick bats caught and tested for rabies, only about 6 percent have the virus. Around 90 percent of human rabies in the US start from contact with bats.
Foxes aren't threatening to humans, except when they have rabies, which is rare. However, foxes can get rabies, but it seldom has, if ever been transmitted to a human in the US.

Wildlife Exclusion

Wildlife Exclusion is the practice of prevention and includes multiple methods, including sealing up entry points and modifying your property. Property changes would include restricting food and water sources or decreasing shelter areas. We cannot treat all wildlife treated equally, so it is important to know you can rely on a Weston Wildlife Specialist for proper advice on the animal of concern.

Our exclusion professional will explain the steps that he or she will take to find any entry point and determine the most reliable removal methods and then the proper exclusion. All of Weston Wildlife Specialist experts will know where to examine your home and property and the questions to ask you to determine the best wildlife removal and exclusion methods.

Wildlife exclsuion means sealing areas of a home that allow animals to possibly enter.
Even a small opening into your attic area can be ripped open by a female raccoon looking for a place to give bith to her kits.
Our Weston Wildlife Specialist crew will locate every possible place that wildlife may use to access a building.

Full Attic Restorations

Full attic restoration is a process of correcting your attic damage after we have removed your nuisance wildlife. Animals such as bats, squirrels, mice, or rats can devastate an attic, causing physical damage and environmental damage like disease-carrying bacteria.

So here is what we do:

  1. We remove all feces and soiled insulation as well as any damaged materials.
  2. If feces is in the insulation, the insulation may need to be removed.
  3. We remove all nesting materials since they are often saturated with parasites.
  4. Once all debris, contaminated insulation, and feces are removed, we then “wash” and sanitize the attic. We will spray a fine sanitizing mist throughout the attic. The mist contains an enzyme that breaks down bacteria left from urine, feces, and oils. This mist sanitizes the insulation and structure of the attic, leaving your attic with a fresh scent.
  5. Finally, we will replace any needed insulation we removed, or we may have to reinsulate depending on the degree of contamination completely.
Restoration May Be Covered By Insurance, But Generally, It Does Not. So Please Contact Your Insurance Company Regarding Restoration Coverage.

Habitat Modification and Mainatainance

Weston Wildlife Specialist uses habitat modification and maintenance methods that prevent wildlife from entering your home, business, buildings, or property. Habitat modification identifies and limits access to food, water, and shelter for a particular species of nuisance wildlife.

Understanding wildlife species’ biology and natural habits are crucial for eliminating wildlife from your home or property. Incorrect or badly implemented control methods can result in more problems by creating ‘trap shy’ and ‘bait shy’ critters. The wildlife professionals at Weston Wildlife Specialist have the knowledge and experience to identify your nuisance wildlife problem’s source and solution.

Proper wildlife exclusion techniques are necessary for long-term wildlife control at your home, business, buildings, or property. Trapping and removal of nuisance critters will solve a homeowner or property owner’s current animal problem. But, nuisance animals are always searching for suitable environments, and only time-researched wildlife exclusion methods prevent wildlife from becoming future annoyances.

Weston Wildlife Specialist find all entry points used by offending wildlife. Bats, raccoons and squirrels in your attic, birds nesting in your chimney, mice entering your living quarters, and critters living in crawl spaces under your home got there because they discovered or torn open an entrance.

Weston Wildlife Specialist habitat modification and maintenance services address the offending critter’s biology and the proper exclusion method needed for your situation.

This home had numerous problems that brough various wildlife onto the property and into the home.
After modifying the habitat and entrances we were able to eliminate the homeowners wildlife problems.

Thermal Imaging Inspection

Successfully finding bothersome wildlife pests with a thermal imaging camera takes extensive training, which Weston Wildlife Specialist have. A thermal imaging inspection often reveals more than wildlife. We often discover the heat of termite nests and carpenter ant nests which makes no one happy but will save you money in the long run.

A thermal imaging inspection doesn’t see through any material. A thermal camera identifies heat variations on a surface, and that variation is produced by something on the other side. A thermal camera can’t show wildlife running through a wall. But, the camera could detect wildlife or a nest that has been producing heat for a prolonged stretch of time, causing a wall to heat up.

If a large heat origin like an animal or a nest isn’t clear, our fine-tuned thermal camera may be able to identify unusual heat patterns, dampness, and other indications of damage that suggest wildlife, like missing insulation or openings in walls that indicates an entrance area. Knowing what patterns to watch for takes education, on the job real-world experience, an investigative nature; otherwise, one can mistakenly interpret a heat signature or even miss the important signs altogether.

We were able to see a bat using a thermal camera.

A Few Testimonials

What People are Saying About Weston Wildlife Specialist

“…Outstanding Service.”

“Weston Wildlife Specialist (Joe) providing outstanding service. We had over 16 bats in our attic! He was able to find and seal up the points of entry, remove the bats, provide the clean up and insulation removal. The insulation removal was a huge job. He spent extra time and he fees were very reasonable. We had other companies come here to give estimates. They had slick presentations and folders and programs that cost $5,000.00 more than Weston Wildlife Specialist. Joe reminds me of a down to earth expert business owner that knows what he is doing. We went with Joe and will always recommend his business. (His employees are respectful, followed all safety protocols as well.)

Maria R.


Joe is someone you can truly trust will do the job right. Joe and his crew successfully removed unwanted guests from our attic. His methods are safe and very humane. He is extremely patient, answers all questions and addresses all concerns. He was extremely responsive and completed the removal and sealing in a timely fashion. His continuous follow up even after the job was done is so greatly appreciated. He gave us our home back. His clean up was amazing and his crew was fast and efficient. Joe is truly someone we would highly recommend with confidence.
