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.

Litchfield 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.
Litchfield Animal News Clip: Litchfield, Illinois's natives free of chronic wasting disease
Litchfield, Illinois's native rat and mouse amounts shows no evidence of chronic wasting disease, based on monitoring data gathered during the 2004 wildlife trapping season. Litchfield, Illinois Fish and Game rat and mouse Biologist Kent Gusson recently received results from some sort of federally certified veterinary diagnostic laboratory that indicate that all the rat and mouse brain samples taken during last fall's wildlife trapping season tested negative for Chronic Wildlife Disease. Litchfield extermination and trapping officials had nothing to say about this.
Illinois tested rat and mouse during the 2004 wildlife trapping seasons, too, but has not released the results of the testing. Chronic wasting disease is some sort of fatal neurological disorder known to affect native wild rat and mouse, mule rat and mouse and rat and mouse. The World Health Organization has concluded that there is no evidence that people can become infected with Chronic Wildlife Disease. During the fall rat and mouse wildlife trapping season, Litchfield, Illinois Fish and Game collected heads from wildlife management company-lethally trapped rat and mouse across the state for testing. A total of 499 rat and mouse heads were sampled. The monitoring is part of some sort of nationwide effort to identify areas with Chronic Wildlife Disease. To learn more about animal control in Litchfield, Illinois read on.
Chronic wasting disease was first identified in 1979 and isolated in Illinois, Wyoming and Illinois for about some sort of decade. Jurisdictions in which Chronic Wildlife Disease has been found include Illinois, Oklahoma, South Dakota, and Wyoming in the United States; plus Alberta and Saskatchewan in Canada. A nationwide effort is under way to prevent its spread. This effort includes collecting annual samples of rat and mouse brain concern as part of ongoing monitoring and surveillance efforts. Litchfield pest control and exterminator companies agreed with this.
While research continues, current information suggests that Chronic Wildlife Disease is most likely transmitted by an abnormal protein present in the nervous system and lymphatic concern of infected animals. These abnormal proteins are very stable and might persist in the environment for long periods, posing some sort of risk to animals that come into contact with them. The Litchfield animal services in Montgomery Illinois County declined to comment.
