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 handle every aspect of wildlife control. We are fully equipped to work on any project, large or small. Some of our services include:

  • Humane wildlife trapping and relocation services
  • Removal of raccoons or squirrels from the attic
  • Building repairs and prevention work to keep animals out
  • 100% permanent elimination of rats, mice, or even bats
  • Cleanup of animal waste and odor control services
  • Emergency animal issues, and dead animal removal

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 Will county animal services for assistance. They can help you out with issues such as stray dogs, stray cats, spay & neuter programs, vaccinations, licenses, pet adoption, bite reports, deceased pets, lost pets, local animal complaints and to report neglected or abused animals. There is no free Bolingbrook animal control for wildlife issues.

Bolingbrook Wildlife Removal Tip: What Equipment Is Required To Trap An Opossum?

Dealing with a pest animal can be difficult at the best of time, but when you are dealing with a fairly large animal like an opossum, dealing with the problem quickly is vital. These animals can cause an awful lot of damage, mess and distress, so it is important to deal with the problem as quickly and efficiently as possible. Here is a list of what you will need in order to be able to trap the opossum and then to remove it to an area well away from where it is causing a problem.

  • 1. Cage Trap

  • This is the most important part of trapping the opossum, and most people will go for a simple cage trap that is of a medium size, usually around the same size as those used to catch raccoons or feral cats. The mechanism needs to be durable and simple enough that it will be effective once the opossum is in the trap, and once it has closed shut the mesh of the cage needs to be strong enough that it cannot be broken by the opossum.

  • 2. Bait

  • There are several different types of bait that can be successful with opossums, and as those who have had them rooting through their garbage will know, opossums will eat all kinds of food. Smelly foods tend to be best, such as fish or canned pet food, while apples can also be successful. Where possible try to ensure the bait is placed far enough back in the cage so that the opossum has to go in, but not close enough to the back that it can be pulled out by the opossum.

  • 3. Appropriate Clothing

  • One important thing to remember is that trapping an opossum may not be a clean process, and they will often try to bite or scratch you when you return to the trap. Thick gloves and clothes will help to protect you if the opossum tries to attack you, while making sure the clothes are also old will be useful if you get sprayed by the foul smelling substance produced by opossums when frightened.

  • 4. Thick Blanket

  • When it comes to moving the opossum, having a thick blanket that you can throw over the trap will help to keep the opossum as calm as possible, as it will prevent it from seeing what is happening outside the cage. It also helps to protect the surroundings from urine and feces, and helps to reduce the chances of being bitten or scratched.

What Prices Do We Charge?
Every job is different: the type of animals involved, is it in the attic or the yard, do you need repairs, etc. It's impossible to have set pricing in this industry. Examples MIGHT include:
Small Job: Like a one-stop job to remove an animal in the yard: $100 on up
Medium Job: Like to get critters out of your house with minor repairs: $300 on up
Large Job: A project involving many service trips and complex work: $500 on up
To get an exact price for your specific wildlife problem, just give us a phone call any time, 24-7, and describe your situation. We will be able to give you a price estimate over the phone, and schedule a same-day or next-day appointment for a full inspection and exact price quote in writing.

Bolingbrook Animal News Clip: Is It Safe To Handle An Opossum With Bare Hands?

These furry and cute animals may look like a dream for those who are looking for an exotic pet, but unlike cats and dogs the opossum has centuries of evolution as an animal that survives the attacks of many predators. This means that opossums will have strong fear instincts when it comes to encounters with larger animals, and with vicious claws and sharp teeth, you certainly don't want to be attacked by the animal. Handling an opossum is something that is really kept to a minimum by most professionals, as even they recognize that in most cases it is not necessary and often causes more harm than good.

Bites And Scratches

One of the biggest dangers to bear in mind when dealing with opossums is that they are naturally nervous creatures and will instinctively view being handled as a threat. This means that bites and scratches can be common if you try to touch an opossum, and adult opossums will be very wary, even if you are providing food and shelter for the animal.

Diseases And Excretions

While the threat of disease may not be particularly large when dealing with an opossum, scratches and bites can certainly become infected quite quickly, which is another reason why handling an opossum with bare hands is considered to be reckless by most people. Opossums also use a very foul smelling excretion as a defense mechanism, so if you are handling the animal and you are sprayed, then you will be washing for a long time, and may have to get rid of the clothes you were wearing.

Do You Really Need To Handle The Opossum?

In the majority of cases, unless you are rescuing an injured animal or are dealing with baby opossums, there will not usually be a need to handle the animal, and it will usually be an instinct because it is quite an attractive animal. Even when trapping and relocating the opossum, there is no real need to handle the animal.

Handling An Opossum Safely

While you cannot be entirely safe while handling a wild animal, if it is really essential, ensuring that you wear thick clothes and very durable gloves that can withstand a bite or scratch is very important. A breathing mask and eye wear can also be wise precautions, and when you are handling the animal try to keep it away from your body and face,but ensure you hold it firmly as it is likely to squirm and try to get out of your grip.
