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.

Fox Lake Wildlife Removal Tip: What Kind Of Damage Do Opossums Cause In An Attic Or Under A House?

There is no doubt to say that possums can cause huge damage to human habitats; especially in the garden, yard, attic, and basements. They not only destroy the property with their raids; rather they also cause serious issues by spreading harmful waste in the premises. Note that, from past few years possums have adapted urban lifestyle and now they keep on searching for human habitats where they can find enough sources of food. If you garden and yard can fulfill their requirements, they will even search for some space to build nests around. As opossums are good climbers, they will take less time to gain access to your roof and then to the attics. Many homeowners report possum nests in the attic or under a house.

Possums keep on eating lots of things, and that is why they excrete lots of waste as well. Within very less time, they can create unsanitary conditions in your premises with toilet and feces. The most terrible thing to know is that their waste is also capable enough to spread harmful diseases. When opossums reach attic or feel that they are trapped in some corner, they can even tear up the air duct to get out of it. Possums are known for their sharp claws and teeth that can break ducts with ease. Note that when this duct damaged, it is important to ensure immediate repair otherwise it may become a path for other rodents and animals as well.

Note that possums are great climbers, so it is easier for them to reach your roof and attics; but at the same time, they are able to grow fast in numbers. Hence, it is important to take them out as soon as possible. Once they enter your attic, they will start damaging the insulation material and electric wires as well. When possums damage electric cables, it increases the risks of fire and short circuits in the house. One of the biggest mistake that most homeowners do when they have a possum in their attic or under the ground is blocking their exit point. Even if you are planning to do it for a short time until the animal removal professionals arrive, it may make possum aggressive, and he will start doing more damage inside. The best idea is to seal the entry point first and then allow the possum to get out of the exit point; once it moves out, you can seal the exit point as well. One of the most trusted methods to get rid of opossums is to use live cage traps. You can set these traps in the area where possums keep on visiting so often but make sure you put an attractive bait to catch them fast. Trapped possum must be relocated carefully at a far location so that it doesn’t find a way to return. However, if you are not able to handle all such things, it is good to take help from professional animal removal company.
