Many of Illinois's wild animals have learned to adapt and even thrive in our homes. For example some wildlife have found that attics make great places to live. Other animals find refuge under homes or porches. Invariably, these animals cause damage. Rodents, like squirrels and rats, love to chew on electrical wires once in an attic, and this causes a serious fire hazard. Raccoons can cause serious contamination in an attic with their droppings and parasites. Same goes for bat or bird colonies. We specialize in solving Illinois's wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, we do it all.

We do not handle dog or cat problems. If you need assistance with a domestic animal, such as a dog or a cat, you need to call your local Lake county animal services for assistance.

There is no free Antioch animal control for wildlife issues.

Antioch Wildlife Removal Tip: What Is The Best Bait To Trap A Skunk?

The most famous thing to know about skunk is its ability to spray liquid with a foul smell. It is his best approach to solve the problem or threat towards his life. Whether it feels danger from predators around or find humans coming close to it; skunks are able to ensure safety with their foul smell. Earlier, these animals were seen in the wild areas, but with time they have adapted urban and suburban lifestyle. They are considered to be as good as raccoons and rats to find food sources in the surrounding area. Once they enter the property, soon they start destroying things around. They take very less time to ruin vegetation in the garden, and after that, they will start searching for your porch and shed area to build dens. The major reason behind their frequent visits to your premises is easy availability of food and shelter. If you want to keep skunks away from your property, it is important to distract them by creating unfavorable conditions.

One of the most recommended methods to deal with skunks is using live cage traps to relocate them. But in order to succeed with this method, you need to use right bait and place the trap at the most desirable location. While making the selection for bait, it is important to understand that skunks are more attracted towards sweeter treats as bait; however, raw chicken and cat food can also be some potential solutions to trap skunks. Some homeowners also prefer to use peanut butter, pieces of bread and marshmallows to trap the skunks. While baits play an essential role in trapping skunks; they are very cautious animals. You will not find it so easy to attract them towards a trap. It is important to choose the appropriate location for placement of trap to succeed.

If you live in the skunk prone area, the very first thing you need to do is install a fence around your property. However, being a good digger, if skunk makes a way to your landscape through burrows, you need to take immediate steps for its removal. Prefer to mark all the entry and exit points through which skunks often come to visit your premises. The trap must be placed in the area that is frequently visited by this animal. Also, make sure you choose right size and design of trap that can capture the skunk in your property.

Skunks are able to spray foul-smelling liquid, so there is no point in going close to this animal. Even when you have successfully captured it into a trap, it is good to make a blind approach to carry it out of your property. Cover the trap with a thick blanket so that skunk cannot spray liquid on you and relocate it at least 10 miles away from your property. As soon as you are ready to release the skunk, safely remove the blanket from the trap, open it and run away fast. \
