  • We Can Solve It!
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 Cook county animal services for assistance. They can help you out with issues such as stray dogs, stray cats, spay & neuter programs, vaccinations, licenses, pet adoption, bite reports, deceased pets, lost pets, local animal complaints and to report neglected or abused animals. There is no free Palatine animal control for wildlife issues.

Palatine Wildlife Removal Tip: How to Get Rid of Moles in Yard without Killing Them

Even though moles are an unsightly lawn menace, spotting their handiwork in your yard is actually a good sign. It means that your lawn is healthy and hospitable, despite the tunneling and dirt mounds that have somewhat desecrated your otherwise lovely residence. While this predicament might not be ideal, it is easily resolved, and you can take the moles' presence as a compliment on your lawn maintenance. There are quite a few ways to rid your yard of this infestation without resorting to physical harm, and you can figure out which method works best for you.

Trapping Moles Is The Best Option

When you have a mole problem, the most popular and effective method of resolution is through trapping. Mole traps need to be safe and cost-efficient, and you will likely want your investment to last for multiple uses. Though many mole traps seems dangerous or physically painful, they do not harm the mole. They might harm children who stumble and fall into them, though, so be very careful. Most traps for moles use protrusions to ensnare and contain the animal, and they are incredibly effective if placed in the tunneling areas. Traps are illegal in Massachusetts, though, and some traps are hard to set.

Killing Off Their Food Source

Moles eat lots of different types of insects due to their insectivore nature, with ants, larvae, and earthworms being their main dietary regimen. By performing a grub control treatment, many of the potential foods that a mole can consume will die off, thus leaving it with little choice but to leave in search of new resources. Unfortunately, this method tends to be the least effective, because homeowners never want to kill off their earthworm population. Earthworms are the mole's favorite food, and unless you're willing to sacrifice your earthworms to get rid of the moles, the grub control treatment in and of itself will be mostly useless.

Hiring Professionals to Resolve the Situation

At the end of the day, if your DIY solutions did not resolve your current predicament in the way that you had hoped, then you can always contact a professional wildlife control office. No one wants to use chemicals or poisons to kill off their mole infestation, and sometimes trapping them just does not go the way you planned. That is why animal control corporations exist-they provide a necessary and beneficial service to the public. You can usually compare rates of different professionals online, and you can hire the company that seems most suited to the case.
