Are Their Summer Homes For Wild Animals?

When summer comes to Connecticut, it’s expected that people will be anxious to throw open their doors and windows and drink up the warm sunshine. Winters can be harsh in New England and many residents are only too eager to see the first signs of summer. However, when you are busy opening up your home to the summer season, wild animals including squirrels, skunks and raccoons are seeking shelter from the heat and summer rains.

We like to keep our homes shut tight during the cold months which make it difficult for wild animals to get inside. But when the weather warms up and homeowners begin to open their windows, vents and garage doors it provides easy access for an animal looking for shade and shelter. During the summer, you need to be diligent about protecting your home from animals.


A wild animal will seek shelter in places that are dark and cold. These include:

  • Basements
  • Underneath decks
  • Garages
  • Sheds
  • Pool houses


As a homeowner in Connecticut you need to be aware of this problem and take the necessary steps to ensure these wild animals do not get into your home.

At Anderson Wildlife Control we offer affordable and humane animal control services to commercial and residential clients throughout Connecticut.
