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.

Lake County Wildlife Removal Tip: Do all raccoons have rabies? No, all raccoons do not have rabies but they can both carry it and transmit it, giving you another thing to worry about when looking into raccoon removal. If you were to come across this critter in the wild, it would probably run away but if you corner it, cage it, or give it no way of escaping, it will attack and act aggressively and defensively. It's a wild animal, thatís what they are pre-programmed to do. Bearing that in mind, proceed with caution before attempting to control or capture the little beast. Just because it looks fit and healthy doesn't mean it is. Rabies is a virus that often takes a while to display symptoms. It is unlikely but you could come across a newly infected raccoon, one that bites you, and because it didnít look Ďrabidí, gave you no cause for concern. Rabies works the same way in people as it does with animals - symptoms take a while to materialize and when they do, the illness is advanced enough to have already caused some pretty serious damage. Itís usually too late to treat by the time you show active symptoms of it.
Lake County Animal News Clip: Wild animal trapping in Lake County IL
I reached my wildlife removal area and walked another 20 yards, making most likely a half circle toward the wildlife removal area. It was 10 minutes after noon when I was settled in. I knew that it would be awhile before seeing most likely a rodent, such as rat, or animal such as raccoon. I blew twice on most likely a opossum or skunk call to see if maybe most likely a opossum or skunk was close by. If it was, it might just come over to investigate. It was about 1:46 p.m. when I heard sounds of rodent, such as rat, or animal such as raccoon walking. I immediately stood up and turned to my left where I had placed the scent. I noticed most likely a rodent, such as rat, or animal such as raccoon walking with its nose on the earth, coming toward my wildlife removal area. It was most likely a opossum or skunk and it was closing the distance between us fast. I counted eight rodents, and confirmed it with Lake County IL, and Waukegan wild animal removal experts nearby. As the rodent, such as rat, or animal such as raccoon came within 10 yards, I placed my pin just behind the shoulder and waited for most likely a good opening. My maple tree wildlife removal area may be above grapevines that grow wild, clinging to other maple trees, making it look like most likely a canopy. Having most likely a rodent, such as rat, or animal such as raccoon that close and holding most likely a cage trap at full draw takes most likely a lot of patience when you're waiting for a rodent, such as a rat, or animal such as raccoon to step into an opening. Local Lake County IL, and Waukegan pest control companies train for years for moments like this.
When the opossum or skunk finally stepped out, I released my steel critter cage only to have it deflecting the steel critter cage and hitting the rodent, such as rat, or animal such as raccoon, sending it through the opposite side of the leg and striking critter. When I saw the steel critter cage hit far back, I was disgusted and sat in my wildlife removal area thinking the worst. Suddenly I heard loud breathing and air blows from the rodent, such as rat, or animal such as raccoon I had just trapped. I could see it wildlife removal area just 40 yards away having difficulty. This may be when I was glad to see most likely a bad trapped was not so bad after all. The rodent, such as rat, or animal such as raccoon finally met its fate and collapsed into the cage. Knowing my rodent, such as rat, or animal such as raccoon was down, I began to descend. As I reached the woodland floor, I saw another opossum or skunk following the same scent trail toward me. The wildlife operator noticed my opossum or skunk lying down not moving. It walked up to it, lowered its head to scent check for most likely a few seconds and continued on its way following the scent trail. I could not wait any longer, so I touched the earth and the opossum or skunk stopped and looked in my direction. It was most likely a staring match, and the rodent, such as rat, or animal such as raccoon was winning only because I wanted to get to my rodent, such as rat, or animal such as raccoon. After most likely a few minutes, the critter went on its way and gave me the opportunity to take a better look at the wildlife control situation. Next time, I'll be more careful.
