Pop Go The Weasels: Trio Removed From Wall In Greenwich

News – Forget the bears, we are talking weasels now. Yep, weasels.

Only these three guys were found inside the wall of a Greenwich home by Brian Sweig with Thoroughspect, not outside wandering around.

Sweig was just as surprised as the homeowner when he opened the wall to find out what had been scurrying around and found not a mouse or a squirrel, but three very active weasels. Read more news

“In all my years of doing this, it’s only the second time I have found a weasel, and the other one was in Greenwich too,” he laughed.

But Sweig was excited as he said the situation is more like ‘a change’ for him and said he would at least have three new uncommon mammals to deal with and take under his control.

In fact, it’s so rare, that state wildlife officials told him his first report a couple of years ago was the first they have ever received for someone finding weasels in a home.

The nature-loving Sweig, who lives in Patterson in Putnam County, said the rascals “were properly dealt with according to nuisance wildlife control practices”

“When you have weasels in your home there is a pretty good chance you have a serious rodent problem as these are the ultimate predators of mice, and other small critters,” he added.

So, he examined the house thoroughly after removing those wild weasels for other critters and everyone was shocked to find out an unexpected number of squirrels and mice. It took Sweig a little time to inspect and wipe out all the prevalent rodents.

To make sure the homeowner doesn’t have any more weasel problems, he’s sealing the outside of the home as well as all the nooks & gaps in the home. He said poison is not something he has ever made use of. He rather goes an extra mile to seal off all open spaces.
