Killing a Hartford flying squirrel can be done in many ways. The small rodent is a wild animal that runs like
lightning which can be hard to capture. With the expansion of residential properties and the urbanized
area, they also adapt to these changes and make them a clever Connecticut animal.
This act triggers the annoyance from humans that are willing to kill the Connecticut squirrels in any ways. Considered as pest, humans use many methods from poisoning to shooting. This to ensure that they will not enter the domestic property once and for all. Shooting a Hartford squirrel is one of the option to kill it. as they can be very quick, animals like squirrels may be hard to catch. when shooting, it is important that you aim them dead because otherwise, the bleeding causes them to die somewhere in their hiding place. these animals are not solitary so they have bunch of them, often more than 10. So far as the matter of animals is concerned, anyone can have a pet animal but no one would like to have an animal that is either dead or wild. So, there are lots of ways through which a person can get rid of the animals he doesn’t want to keep inside the four walls of the house.
Shooting would be an uneconomical way to kill the pest since you may miss one or three and fail to deal with it. Poisoning is also another way to kill pest but it is an illegal approach. It’s not a good solution when it is generating more problems as the imprecise killing may leave them dead in places we are most unexpected. Moreover, they are suffering the hardest way due to the poisoning process. this means they are likely to go inside the hiding place because they feel safer there. then, it would be hard to determine the place and exact location and it takes time to remove them especially after the body is decayed.
Trapping may kill two of the Hartford animals but it may not mean anything when you have 8 left. What’s more, they are a great climber and it may be missing the chance to be captured by a trap. Other safer way to try is to trap it using live cage trap and relocate the animal 10 miles away at least. It resolve the problem of getting virus related disease or failing the job on killing the pest.
