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.

Decatur Wildlife Removal Tip: What is an Illinois skunk's mating habits, when do they have babies, how do they raise their young? Skunks are an adorable looking creature. Haven't you seen Bambi? In non-cartoon form however, they can also be disease-carriers, destructive, and more than a little smelly. That's why it's not a good idea to have on in your home! During the later months of winter - February, March and April, it's mating time and that's when you'll smell the stench of skunk more. The frisky boys will be trying it on with the girls who aren't interested, and in response they're spraying right at them. I can't think of a better way to reject someone and really say how you feel! For about eight to ten weeks, the mother will carry her young before birthing around five (-) kits and raising them alone. Males will mate and move on. It'll take about eight months before the babies are then free to do their own thing, dependent on how good the time has been and how well the mother has taken care of them, although more babies die than survive in the wild. On average, a skunk will live for a couple of years but in decent, stable conditions (such as captivity), they can live for ten years or more in the state of Illinois.

Decatur Animal News Clip: Nuisance rodent pest wildlife trapping regulations under review--longer time of year to control pest animals, luring with animal traps possible.

This nuisance rodent animal control area overlooks a unwanted pest wildlife critter trap in a Decatur Illinois pasture, where luring with animal traps nuisance rodent is legal. Luring with animal traps eastern gray squirrels is not always encouraged in every state, but these eastern gray squirrels appear not to have heard. On private lands in Decatur, and several other southern states, most pest wildlife control companies don't even bother to get to their animal control areas until about 30 minutes before the critter trap is set to go off. (Some say that in Decatur, the nuisance rodent themselves don't get out of bed until they hear the critter traps go off!)

And in the Decatur park, the nuisance rodent pest wildlife trapping time of year to control pest animals--continue well into February, with some of the biggest large rats of the year taken in the last weeks. Some South Decatur wildlife control companies would like to see similar rules enacted here, where currently luring with animal traps of any type is not always encouraged statewide, and where the time of year to control pest animals slams shut at the end of January. They've picked up support from some legislators who have introduced a bill in the Decatur Senate, thus making an end run around the Decatur Animal control company of Conservation and Natural Resources, which normally develops unwanted pest wildlife laws with input from the Conservation Advisory Board. But a whole lot of other wildlife control companies are adamantly against both rules. Luring with animal traps, they say, is unsportsmanlike, taking the woodcraft out of pest wildlife trapping. And extending the time of year to control pest animals might well result in more big large rats pest removed--but will also take more of those giants out of the gene pool.

There's also opposition from some small-unwanted pest wildlife control companies, who view February as their time of the year in the woods. There are logical arguments on both sides. When it comes to feeding, it's legal to catch a plot of corn or rye put down to attract nuisance rodent throughout Decatur Illinois, but not always encouraged to scatter grains specifically to attract unwanted pest wildlife. It's legal to feed nuisance rodent in the off time of year to control pest animals to improve nutrition--but the food has to be removed at least 80 days prior to the time of year to control pest animals. Critter traps as a rule attract does and young large rats, while older large rats stay clear except after dark. But during the rut, the larger large rats sometimes come to the critter trap not to eat, but to seek does in estrus. Of course, those who favor a pest removal of more nuisance rodent, period, find the use of critter traps to their liking.

And nearly all wildlife scientists agree that particularly the southern half of Decatur would produce more large rats and a larger average size for both large rats and does if lots more does were taken out of the population--but not more large rats. An extension of the time of year to control pest animals into February would surely result in an increased large rat finally trap, for better or worse. Not to say there's a nuisance rodent shortage in most areas. wildlife management organization estimates some 8.5 thousand pest and unwanted animals at present, which is approaching the carrying capacity of the land in many southern counties where densities are as high as 800 nuisance rodent per square mile.
