Complete Animal Removal

Service Areas

Humane Animal Trapping

No matter what the circumstance or problem may be, humane animal removal and ethical animal treatment is one of the most important aspects of our services. We understand that you may have been convenienced but we also understand that they want to survive just like we do. We specialize in fast removal so that your situation is solved right away, while also making sure the nuisance animals are as comfortable as possible throughout the process.

Animal Damage Repairs and Exclusion

Trapping is the the second most important part of what we do. That’s right, second! Without properly animal proofing the animals entry point into or under your home, the residual animal smells left behind in the vacant den will quickly attract new animals to take up residence. Our proprietary wildlife exclusion services use the very best animal proof materials made specifically for nuisance animals, and are guaranteed against animal entry.

What we do

The Wildlife Control  Process

Home Inspection

The first step to solving your wildlife issue is doing a complete home inspection for wildlife entry. This inspection allows us to figure out what type of animals are entering, where they are getting in and how they are accessing this point. From there, we can formulate the best plan of action for not only removing them, but also preventing them once the trapping process is completed.

Animal Removal

Wildlife removal is your first line of defense in getting control back once animals have moved in. We provide humane and effective nuisance animal removal solutions for all types of wildlife from trapping muskrat, beaver, squirrels, raccoons and skunks to getting rid of bats and birds. The variety of methods we use ensures that even trap smart or shy animals are captured and taken away.

Clean Up Services

Our clean up services offered are complete from start to finish. We offer bird nest removal from attics for nests the size of a shoe box to nests that are 4 feet tall and span several feet across the attic. We also offer bat guano removal for bat dropping accumulation in attics. Raccoon feces removal is also offered when an accumulation in the attic has been discovered. Full attic clean out services are also available in the instance the insulation is destroyed.

Guaranteed Exclusion Work

Wildlife exclusion and animal proofing is the most vital aspect to your wildlife control plan of action. Once a den has been vacated and hair, urine, feces and some times even blood are left behind the area is very attractive to other wildlife. With no animal present to defend the territory a skunk, squirrel or raccoon will quickly move in and your wildlife issue will back at square one. Which can be a nightmare if damage repair has already been completed.


Nuisance Species

Mice Removal

Mice in your home can be disastrous. Did you know that most homeowners insurance policies do not cover rodent damage done to your how? How much damage can little mice cause right? Wrong! Mice and rodents inside a home are one of the leading causes of business and home fires across the U.S. causing a staggering 30%, which is roughly 30,000 per year. We offer full services for Lake County pest control and mice trapping because of the dangers they pose. Our home inspections for mice entry points before our rodent removal company services cover your home from top to bottom to find the small holes that allow problem mice to enter your home. Once we find these rodent hole we begin to set up mouse trapping services to get rid of mice so we can proceed to the next step, mouse proofing. Our mouse proofing services entail finding every hole and sealing them with materials that mice can not gnaw through. Materials to keep mice out of a home are limited to a very few rodent proof materials such as glass and metal. Once we remove rodents and seal your home from mouse re-entry we can then proceed with mouse & rodent dropping removal and disinfectant treatments to kill the smells and disease left behind. If you are hearing mice in your attic or have found mice droppings in your basement or cupboards give us a call today to set up a Lake County home rodent inspection.

Bat Removal

Bats are an amazing animal with a very large appetite, a fast digestive system, and actually the only mammal that can fly. Bats are excellent for our ecosystem eating their weight in insects every night. Bats can also be a health risk to humans because the biggest health factor from bats is rabies. Rabies are found in bats more than any other animal. Histoplasmosis is a disease associated with bat guano and bird droppings. When droppings are ignored, a fungus can grow and produce spores that may cause histoplasmosis when inhaled. Also comes the fact that, parasites can be associated with bats. Fleas, lice, mites and bat bugs can infest bats, Some may transmit diseases to humans and pets. Our company takes Lake County bat control very seriously. Bats can live in large colonies and are very protected by wildlife management.

Birds in the attic can be a nightmare as they fly in and out daily with nesting materials such as hay, straw, leaves and garbage.

A couple of example of chipmunk problems is the fact that other wildlife can be attracted to the burrowing holes and take up residents and more often than not are taken over by larger animals.

Squirrel Removal

Squirrels in an attic present the same problems as mice but just on a larger scale as they can gnaw faster resulting in greater damage. The damage squirrel create in an attic is usually never covered by homeowners insurance given that they are a rodent. Squirrel damage in an attic ranges from gnawed wires to trampling and urination on insulation or exterior holes that allow water to enter creating water damage and mold issues along with other unwanted guest from bugs to bats to enter. Our professional Lake County IL squirrel removal company services get to the bottom of pest squirrel problems and stop them with numerous effective squirrel trapping set ups.

Groundhog Removal

Woodchucks, also known as groundhogs or whistling pigs are the largest member of the squirrel family. Their Identified by their reddish brown fur, stout body, short legs, bristly tail, flat head and a white patch surrounding its nose, Woodchucks surfaces from its den in the early morning or late evening to eat, they do this in order to get their intake of water from the dew and plant moisture contained in their preferred foods. Seeing woodchucks on your property is not a good thing because woodchucks will do a variety of damages. These animals have been known to damage vegetable and flower gardens, crops, orchards, and nurseries but the most important damage is to structure, the burrows of Woodchuck/Groundhog usually have between on two and five entry points, giving groundhogs their critical means of evading predators. Burrows are commonly large, with up to 30 feet of tunnels buried up to 5 feet underground, and can pose a serious danger to pastoral fields by injuring farm animals and damaging farm equipment or residential structure, can cause foundations or small buildings to have structural instability. When dealing with a nuisance woodchuck, trapping is the only guarantee that the woodchuck issue is removed.

In order to solve a woodchuck problem for good, they must be trapped and removed from your property. We offer professorial & humane woodchuck trapping & removal for your pest issue.

Skunk Removal

We can honestly say we love skunks, they are cute, docile when dealt with correctly are surprisingly very smart with a reputation for being smarter and a better pet then a house cat. If it were legal in Lake County Illinois we might even have a few…however we would never want one living under our deck or stoop so we know just how you feel when you want to get rid of a pest skunk on your property. Believe it or not we have had several clients call the gas company or fire department before calling us for skunk removal services because they thought the sulfur in the skunk essence was a gas leak. The sulfur in skunk spray is what temporarily blinds animals threatening the skunks life. We offer professional skunk odor removal for skunk spray that is just unbearable which is usually best done after skunk removal is performed. There is a special process for skunk control that always starts with skunk trapping because nothing can be done effectively with a live skunk spraying. Unfortunately we do encounter dead skunks from poisoning or natural causes usually disease. When we have a dead skunk under a deck of concrete stoop we try and remove it as soon as possible as the smell will last for periods of 6+ months very strongly. This is best accomplished by digging till the carcass can be found and removed, a very long process. If your looking for professional Lake County IL skunk control by humane trapping give us a call today for a phone consultation for skunk removal or skunk odor removal.

Raccoon Removal

Raccoons in an attic present two huge issues. Attic insulation damage causing a big rise in heating & cooling bills and the parasite ridden feces filled with raccoon roundworm eggs. Raccoons establish community latrines sites where they repeatedly deposit fresh feces. Raccoon feces can carry millions of roundworm eggs that lay dormant for years and can infect domestic cats and dogs, so raccoon removal is very important Raccoons are powerful animals and to be quite honest, almost every home is at risk of raccoons entering the attic because of their agility and power. Nuisance raccoons chew through roof shingles and wood, boar through soffits, tear down siding and fascia boards and pop open attic fans & vents to get inside an attic. Our Lake county raccoon removal company services tackle all types of raccoon control situations with various types of traps and raccoon exclusion, custom fabricated out of steel to insure once we get rid of raccoons they are gone for good. If you have a raccoon that has broken into your attic you are in luck about one thing, homeowners insurance usually covers the damage they do and takes care of the damaged insulation ruined by the raccoons walking and trampling around. Attic re-insulation due to raccoon damage is best done once the problem raccoons are removed and the raccoon entry points are sealed up professionally. We guarantee all of our raccoon proofing for quality of materials and workmanship. If you have a raccoon in your attic that you need to get rid of, call us today. We will send out a Lake County IL technician to get your raccoon trapping process started as well as an agent to estimate damage and work directly with your homeowners insurance on attic restoration.
