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 Madison county animal services for assistance.

There is no free Edwardsville animal control for wildlife issues.

• Plumbing stacks

How to inspect your house for wild animals’ entry holes

After realizing that you are actually living with wild animals, the next step is to inspect your house to find their entry holes. Steps of doing that are as follows.

• Identify the dark areas in your house. Wild animals usually use the dark areas to enter into your house to avoid you from noticing them. Clean up those areas as you look for openings that may allow wild animals in.
• The next entry hole for wild animals can be openings in the chimney. Signs that the chimney is the entry hole of wild animals may be waste around that area, scratches or even teeth bites in case of rodents.
• Inspect your walls too. There might be openings in the wall that allow wild animals into your house. Look keenly for those openings and seal them.
• Inspect the openings at the foot of your door. Most people inspect their houses and tend to forget that that can be a possible entry route for wild animals. Look for signs around that place. For example presence of wild animal waste, fur or teeth biting for rodents

Inspecting your house for wild animal’s entry holes is the first step of keeping wild animals out of your house. However, before sealing those holes, remove the wild animal first to prevent it from being stuck in your house.
