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 Du Page 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 Wheaton animal control for wildlife issues.

Wheaton Wildlife Removal Tip: What Are Some Ways To Kill An Opossum In The Yard?

Dealing with an opossum in the yard is often a frustrating experience, as the animal is particularly fond of tearing through garbage and rooting around for food, and when this is happening regularly, cleaning up the yard is not a pleasant experience. It is worth noting that opossums are nocturnal creatures, so you may not be able to deal with them during the day, but there are ways that you can use to get rid of the animal. The key thing with using lethal methods in a yard is ensuring that there are no animals or people that may get hurt because of your efforts to get rid of the opossum.

Lethal Traps

There are a variety of different traps that can be used to kill opossums, and these range from those that are available in stores or online through to homemade devices that are used in a similar way. The most important thing to ensure when you are dealing with the traps is that they are checked regularly and that they are effective, as a trap that fails to kill an opossum is not only cruel, but the opossum in pain can also cause a lot of damage. Make sure traps are checked several times during the day and night, and that they are located where only the opossum can get to it, and it is out of reach of domestic animals and children.


Because opossums are nocturnal, you may need to have a rifle that is equipped with a night vision scope in order to be able to shoot the animal effectively. When you are shooting the opossum, ensure that you are aiming for the head and that you are able to fire a second shot quickly if for any reason the first bullet injures but doesn't kill the animal. You should also check that it is safe and legal to discharge a firearm in your area, otherwise you may get in trouble with the law too.


Down the decades there are many people who have chosen to use poison to deal with pest animals and have come to regret it in the long run, as it is a method that will kill an animal, but it is neither the most pleasant nor the most efficient way to solve the problem. Poison will often find its way to other animals or children, while you also have no control about where the animal will die, and once the opossum's carcass starts to decay, it will often draw other pest animals.

Wheaton asks in the dollar amount of 40 for an annual nonresident wildlife control permit compared to in the dollar amount of 19 for some sort of resident documentation that allows animal extermination.

Many Wheaton wild animal control companies are making plans to animal capture in Illinois this fall and that invites the question of what they can expect. Rat and mouse wildlife trapping should be about the same. The outlook is "improved" for the wildlife trapping of ruffed grouse and "about the same" for woodcock, according to Al Snake Catcher Steve, small game specialist for the Illinois trappin' agency. The Wheaton animal services in Du Page County declined to comment.

"Our grouse drumming count survey in the spring showed some sort of 29 percent increase over the preceding year," Snake Catcher Steve announced. While that may sound exciting to grouse wild animal control companies, Snake Catcher Steve points out that one must remember grouse are coming back from the low end of some sort of cycle. Each cycle is roughly seven to 10 years. Highs were recorded in 1976, 1991, 1999 and 1999. Snake Catcher Steve looks for grouse amounts to improve year to year and attain its next high around 2010. Ruffed grouse and woodcock wildlife trapping are popular in Illinois because of the immense amount of public land that is open to wildlife trapping. Snake Catcher Steve announced the woodlands in the Upper Peninsula of Illinois and northern third of the Lower Peninsula offer the best grouse and woodcock catching.
