If you have previously had a problem with raccoons and squirrels, then you know what a menace varmints can be. The same is also true for bats, especially knowing the fact that bats are carriers of the rabies virus. Remember, it is illegal to use poisons to kill bats, so it will be better if you opt for bat traps. However, research has shown that bats have a tendency to return to their roosting place even if they are 150 miles away. Hence, traps may not be a permanent solution to prevent bats from making a home in your house. In such a case, it would be best to go for a permanent bat control measure which ensures that bats do not return to roost in your home.

If you are not comfortable adopting bat control measures, then you can even hire a professional, but be prepared to shell out a few thousands based on the size of your home, the equipment used, the time spent on fixing the holes and crevices and the material used to seal off the holes and openings. Also, before hiring the services of a professional, it is best to get an estimate.

Lake County Wildlife Removal Tip: Will repellents get a squirrel out of the attic? Raccoons are one of the squirrels biggest predators so if the squirrel can smell the bigger animal around, it’ll be more likely to flee and set up home somewhere else. That’s the fact of the matter - that’s the way the natural food chain works and sometimes, just sometimes, you can use this in your favor. If you have a squirrel in your attic, you won’t be able to deal with the problem completely until you’ve sealed up all the holes and fixed all the damage, but if trapping and removing the creature seems a little too difficult, there is one repellent you could try. It’s the only one that has been proven to have any effect - eviction fluid. It’s made with the urine and other bodily fluids from male raccoons and it can work to get rid of squirrels and female raccoons in some places. With squirrels, it’s because it thinks there is a threat of attack nearby. If you felt that, wouldn’t you want to move away too?

We also provide bat removal for Illinois residents. Bats are mammals that are capable of carrying rabies. They have tiny teeth, and you may not realize you have been bitten until you manifest the signs of this fatal disease. The safety of you and your family is our top concern, and we recommend that you do not try to remove bats from your residence. We will help you rid your home of one bat or several bats. Bats can enter your dwelling and give birth to their offspring. Before you find your home infested with a bat colony, contact us. Bat removal in Illinois should be done by people who are experienced at wildlife removal and equipped for the task. Once the bats have been removed we can also help you with the guano removal and cleanup!

One of the most common complaints involving nuisance wildlife is the noise they can produce in a home. Many home owners may be unaware that they even have an unwanted visitor in their home if not for the noise. Certain animals may spend their time crawling around (and doing other things) in their newfound home (your attic, soffits, walls, garage, etc.). The scurrying scratching, chewing, or vocal noise that you hear may be most unwelcome, particularly from nocturnal animals. The primary culprits are raccoons, squirrels, rats, and mice, but other creatures may be at work. Give me a call, and I will identify the source of the noise, as well the means by which the animals are entering the structure. Get the problem fixed, and you will sleep better at night!

Illinois is full of wildlife, including snakes, squirrels, raccoons, skunks, opossums, and more. Wildlife removal is a complex field. I recommend professional wildlife control services if you want to solve a critter problem legally and correctly. For example, it is necessary to perform correct preventative repairs to keep pest animals a out of your house for good. We perform full building inspection, do the the repairs and we also offer attic decontamination if necessary. Rats and mice love to live in attics, and can chew wires or leave droppings. In fact Detroit wildlife frequently enter homes, and correct removal is not a simple task.

One important thing that we always keep in mind when conducting animal proofing is to make sure that we see the world through the eyes of an animal. It may sound silly but once you start to think about it, it is actually a smart strategy. We will conduct a thorough inspection of your property and look for things that could potentially attract unwanted animals such as skunks, raccoons, rats, beavers, etc. We will analyze your property intensively, from looking for holes under your decks to cutting off tree branches hanging on top of your roofs (some animals, like raccoons, are smart enough to climb trees to gain access to your chimney). We often look for food sources like trash bins and vegetable gardens, these things can attract animals like magnets.

You removed the animals from the attic, but are you finished yet? Nuisance wildlife in your attic can create problems many homeowners never think of. These animals can carry ectoparasites, which after the wildlife host is evicted, may move inside the home looking for a new host—YOU! Bat bugs, mites, ticks and fleas are just some of the ectoparasites you need to be concerned about. Mice in the attic, bats in the attic or various other vistors are notorious for bringing these pests in. Ask our Wildlife Management Specialists to inspect your attic and treat for these critters, after your problem species is removed.
