Squirrels are somewhat forgotten creatures. Here in New England, they run about through our yard and streets without giving much bother to human neighbors. Seeing a squirrel scurry around the yard or across the roadway doesn’t evoke the same emotions as seeing a skunk or raccoon passing through.
Still, squirrels play some important roles in nature and in our lives that we may not readily think about. On January 21, National Squirrel Appreciation Day, we are reminded of kind acts we can do to make sharing space with these cute rodents more amicable.
Squirrels first made their appearance in our living areas in the mid-19th century and have since been seen as important “natural gardeners” who plant more trees and help urban areas to flourish. In addition to adding beautification to landscapes, trees invite the bushy-tailed creatures to settle into their limbs.
Some may consider them invasive species, especially if they have taken up residence in your attic or are found chewing up wires. When this happens, there are things you can do as a responsible homeowner to stop the nuisance and still protect the creatures is to call in humane wildlife removal services.
Anderson Wildlife offers safe removal services across Connecticut and serves both residential and commercial properties.
In addition to removing them from the premises, repairing any damage that’s been done is also part of the service. We safely live-trap and relocate animals and get the job done without endangering the lives of animals. We are also a member of the NWCOA and the Connecticut Wildlife Control Association.
