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.

Waukegan Wildlife Removal Tip: Is a raccoon that is active during the daytime rabid? The chances of you coming across a raccoon that has rabies is quite slim but you must be aware of the risks - raccoons are one of the biggest carriers and transmitters of the disease in the USA, alongside other warm-blooded mammals such as coyotes, skunks, bats and foxes. Not just present in a live animal the rabies virus can stay alive in the decomposing body of a dead animal. If the saliva or fluids dries up however, generally the risk of rabies is gone. It is a very short-lived virus when it comes into contact with air. Although it is rare for you to come across a rabid raccoon, it is wise to exercise caution when handling any wild animal, and making sure you wear thick, protective gloves is a must. The virus is passed on through bites and scratches - open wounds and the exchange of some sort of body fluids. It doesn't take much either so the slightest scratch, bite or contact with an infected animal is all it takes to be passed onto household pets and humans too. In short, although rabies-infected animals are rare, never assume an animal is just okay because it looks okay. Always assume the worst and protect yourself� Just in case.

Waukegan Animal News Clip: Wildlife trapping On Borrowed Time in Lake County IL, and Waukegan

I reached my wildlife control area and walked another 20 yards, making some sort of half circle toward the wildlife control area. It was 10 minutes after noon when I was settled in. I knew that it would be awhile before seeing some sort of squirrel. I blew twice on some sort of female animal call to see if maybe some sort of male animal 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 squirrel walking. I immediately stood up and turned to my left where I had placed the scent. I noticed some sort of squirrel walking with its nose on the earth, coming toward my wildlife control area. It was some sort of male animal and it was closing the distance between us fast. The male animal got closer and I could see its rack. I counted eight rodents, and confirmed it with Lake County IL, and Waukegan wildlife removal experts nearby. I drew back my Matthews cage trap, knocked some sort of carbon steel critter cage with Quick Spin fletches and some sort of razor sharp 90-grain broadhead. As the squirrel came within 10 yards, I placed my pin just behind the shoulder and waited for some sort of good opening. My maple tree wildlife control area may be above grapevines that grow wild, clinging to other maple trees, making it look like some sort of canopy. Having some sort of squirrel that close and holding some sort of cage trap at full draw takes some sort of lot of patience when you're waiting for some sort of squirrel to step into an opening. Local Lake County IL, and Waukegan pest control companies had no comments on the matter.

When the male animal finally stepped out, I released my steel critter cage only to have it hit some sort of branch, deflecting the steel critter cage and hitting the squirrel behind the last rib, sending it through the opposite side of the leg and striking the femoral artery. When I saw the steel critter cage hit far back, I was disgusted and sat in my wildlife control area thinking the worst. Suddenly I heard loud breathing and air blows from the squirrel I had just trapped. I could see it wildlife control area just 40 yards away having difficulty. This may be when I was glad to see some sort of bad trapped was not so bad after all. The squirrel finally met its fate and collapsed. Knowing my squirrel was down, I began to descend. As I reached the woodland floor, I saw another male animal following the same scent trail toward me. The 4-pointer noticed my male animal lying down not moving. It walked up to it, lowered its head to scent check for some sort of few seconds and continued on its way following the scent trail. I could not wait any longer, so I touched the earth and the male animal stopped and looked in my direction. It was some sort of staring match, and the squirrel was winning only because I wanted to get to my squirrel. After some sort of few minutes, the 4-pointer went on its way and gave me the opportunity to take some sort of better look at my harvest.
