Wildlife control in Illinois is a constant need. Wildlife and human populations in Illinois are both growing and as they grow, conflict between homeowners and nuisance wildlife is growing. We help mediate these situations so that humans and wildlife can live in harmony through humane methods. Wildlife control does not end when the animal trapping has been completed. Without wildlife exclusion, Illinois wildlife species are notorious for locating dens that have been previously occupied and moving right in. This is in large part to the odors that are left behind from blood, hair, urine, feces and even dead carcasses.

Want to know more about the ABC's of what this area under discussion has to propose to every human being who is willing to do things for themselves? During an inspection of the structure needing bat eviction I can determine the size of the colony and the best time of the year to remove the bats. During certain times of the year bats form nursery colonies. Depending on your geographical area the bats can only be removed when the young bats are able to fly. We like to use a one-way door or referred to as a valve.

These unidirectional escapes lets the bats escape not allowing the bats back in. This type of bat control eviction is approved by the organization Bat Conservation International. The utmost critical thing in bat removal from a residence is attention to all the little construction gaps. When closing all construction gaps, anything larger than an a quarter inch should be sealed. You have to seal the entire home to foil bats from getting back in. You will go as far as sealing any fault or construction crack. Ill need to exclude vents to keep bats out, let's start by closing off louver vents, attic vents, and ridge vents if bats can breach them using 1/4 inch screen. These can be painted to match, but I have found it blends in nicely left unpainted.

Inspect chimneys, bricks and mortar may be loose forming gaps. Look for gaps around where the chimney goes through soffit, carefully seal gaps and install a one-way door, if a bat way in is there. Ridge venting systems are feasible bat entrances. When looking at the ridge vent closely you'll usually find the plastic ridge vents deform leaving gaps, I've seen where varmints have chewed a gap in the vent. I will do away with the previous roof vent system and replace it. Primarily, you lay down 1/4 inch hardware cloth this keeps the bats, mice and squirrels from getting through. We will install a one-way bat door here also if the bats were using this area. Finally you'll finish the attic vent with a vent system referred to as Cobra vent, and then finish it with top cap shingles. We try to color match any calking, tin work and exclusion work to make it merge in as if we have not had to fix the construction defects. We use paintable caulking, the silicon based calks will tinge over time.

I build my own one-way doors. After ten years of bat control, I came up with an easy effective one-way valve for bat removal. You can purchase commercially produced bat cones but I personally think they are too short and have no airflow at the base where it is attached to the structure. These one-way doors are left on for about two weeks, to let bats leave. Then I can remove the one-way door and then block the entrance. After the bats have exited through the one-way doors the bats will try for several nights to get back in, by looking for another entrance, this is why sealing every possible entrance needs to be done. This is how to evict bats.Find out more by reading our other articles on this topic and other subjects we have written related to it.

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.

Bat control specialists are all over the place. Home remedies and self-made plans for bat removal are rarely effective, which is why these companies are so easy to find. They understand the seriousness of getting rid of bats, and they know that people cannot mediate the situation on their own. Therefore, they will come into your home, inspect the problem, and work with you to devise a solution that best suits your particular needs.

Probably the best thing about bat control is that it is different for every person, and these removal experts understand that. There is no one uniform solution to take care of bat problems, and you can't just give everyone the same exact plan. Your problem, the number of bats that you have, and the number of entry points or the locations of them will greatly impact the removal of those bats. If you've already tried to solve the problem on your own by sealing up the gaps and cracks that you could find, a removal company will likely need to find new places to let the bats out.

Bat control specialists will usually devise a humane plan to let the bats leave your home, but then put little devices into place that work like one way doors. That way, the bats can leave to get food, but when they return, they aren't able to get in anymore. They'll go off to find a new home, and after a few days or a week, the holes will all be sealed for good. Before the problem is considered solved, though, another inspection will be done to make sure all of the bats are gone. Then, exclusion plans will begin, which generally involves sealing cracks and holes and making your home impenetrable to uninvited guests.

The final step of a bat control specialist will be to clean up the guano that is left behind. If not cleaned up, bat guano can be toxic to your family even just by breathing the air in your home. That's why professional cleanup is recommended for all bat guano problems. Proper chemicals and cleaning processes will ensure that all bacteria are eliminated, leaving your home safer and healthier so that your family isn't at risk. This is what you can expect from a bat control service, and you should call them as soon as you realize that you have bat problems to have the situation resolved quickly and effectively.

Catch and remove raccoons from attic. U.S. Wildlife Removal: Wildlife capture and removal is of course, an essential part of nuisance wildlife control. While most people appreciate nature, they do not always appreciate the destruction of property, disturbance of peace, or health risks that wild animals in and around the home cause. The goal of U.S. Wildlife Removal is to quickly and humanely eliminate the animals causing the problems. The goal is not to eliminate every animal in the neighborhood, just the target ones causing you the headaches. For example, if a raccoon is living in your chimney, U.S. Wildlife Removal will not set traps on the ground, which may catch any number of non-target raccoons or other animals. Illinois Wildlife Removal will go right for the target animals in the chimney.
