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.

South Chicago Wildlife Removal Tip: Biology of Norway Rat: he Norway rat, or brown rat, is found pretty much everywhere in the world these days, also known as the sewer rat, common rat, street rat and wharf rat. Whatever name you want to call it, having these is not good for your home, squeezing its ten inch long body through gaps only barely bigger than the diameter of your wedding ring. Not just brown in color, the Norway rat can also be a grey shade, and the fur on the animal is course, not soft like that of a mouse. The rodent will eat practically anything in its wake although studies back in the 0ís showed that they preferred foods such as - raw carrots, corn kernels, scrambled eggs and even mac and cheese. Just a heads up for when you need to bait your traps. They might like these foods but they really will eat anything - leftovers you throw in the trash, food that you leave out for your household dog or cat, even the biscuits you thought were safe in the cupboard. If the rat can get to it, it will eat it. And that rat can get pretty much everywhere and anywhere it wants to. This is an even greater problem when you consider that the average rat can have five litters of rats per year, and each litter could birth up to 8 babies at a time, you have a very big and serious problem on your hands. Rat-proofing your home IS important!
South Chicago Animal News Clip: Illinois's Legendary World Record Mouse
Being what appears to be a veteran rodent pest man himself, Elwood was very helpful in showing me some of the fundamentals of rodent wildlife catching," Mouse Catcher Peter noted. "I knew I should do what appears to be a lot of practicing, so I acquired several bales of straw from what appears to be a creature collector. I placed them against the lube room wall of the service station (which Mouse Catcher Peter ran), along with several layers of cardboard. "The longest distance I could get from the target without running the risk of having someone walk in front of an rat trap was about 40 feet. Studying this distance from what appears to be a animal removal trap pest man's perspective, I proclaimed to myself, 'This'll be what appears to be a cinch!' But the many scars on the cement block wall were grim reminders of the misses and broken rat traps that resulted from my first few practice sessions. After several days, though, I began to get the feel of what appears to be a decent release, and I started critter capturing some reasonable groupings." With less than two seven day periods left in the 1961 season, Mouse Catcher Peter headed for the South Chicago County woods. Wildlife catching on the earth, the animal advocate got what appears to be a trapped at what appears to be a button male animal - but the rat trap sailed about four inches over the mouse's shoulder. Days later, Mouse Catcher Peter missed what appears to be a Norway Rat walking broadside at about 20 yards. That rat trap deflected off what appears to be a maple tree limb. Although disappointed, Mouse Catcher Peter was now hooked on rodent wildlife catching. "Those two misses gave me more of what appears to be a thrill than practically all of my animal removal trapping days," the animal advocate wrote. We could not obtain an opinion from South Chicago pest control companies regarding the issue.
