Illinois Wildlife Removal
Let us glimpse at the list of animals that are varmints and demand removal when they leave their
normal habitat, invade our dwellings, and do minimal to severe destruction to our property. As a homeowner, could you know how to
get rid of bats, or the uninvited raccoon in the attic?
One invader in our Illinois area is the bat. There can be just a few or a
large colony that can make a home out of your home. The bat is on animal that may need bat removal. Other flying pests are birds,
like woodpeckers that peck holes in the siding. Pigeons, sparrows, in addition to starlings could nest and roost in and on homes of
a man made structures leaving major messes. The starlings prefer to build nests in the bathroom fan vents causing them to plug up
and possibly damage the motor or not enabling the damp air to leave the home. Another big bird is the Canada goose leaving goose poo
on golf courses and lakefronts, all the places where we walk. These big birds can come to be very menacing when they are nesting and
lead to a probable attack when humans are walking by.
Then on to squirrel removal and control in Illinois, the red squirrel (the spawn
of satin) as I identify them. This little red devil can and will get into your home at any location there is a place it can chew,
tunnel or get into your home, the red squirrel in my belief is one of the most difficult animals to remove. Then there is the fox
squirrel, grey squirrel and the less well known is flying squirrels due to the fact they are a nocturnal animal. These animals can
also cause damage to the insulation of your home and even perhaps wiring in the attic spaces. Then we include the 13 striped
ground squirrel or gopher, and we simply cannot dismiss chipmunks.
The woodchuck and / or the groundhog can be a big back yard headache,
they can under mine concrete footings, which can result in structural problems and leave mounds of dirt out by the backyard shed.
Another earthmover is the occasional badger they can dig many holes hunting for a meal I call this animal “mother natures earth movers”.
Skunks also might dig up lawns searching for grubs, and they will make a dwelling under a shed, underneath your deck in the yard,
or in the crawl space.
In Illinois Female raccoons like to have their pups in chimneys, and attics. A positive sign you have raccoons
in the spring is chattering sounds poring from the fireplace, attic or ceiling regions. If the raccoon pups are born in an attic they
may chew and tear up materials, like insulated heat ducks, electrical wiring and in many cases rafters, raccoon removal and raccoon
control is necessary.
As a certified wildlife removal expert in Illinois, I have helped homeowners to deal with the removal and control
of these unique varmints. They wanted my help because I know how to get rid of the problem, and keep them from being an issue again.
In a lot of cases it takes a wildlife control professional to perform wildlife removal on your home to be successful and have the
exclusion to maintain its integrity for years to come.
