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 handle every aspect of wildlife control. We are fully equipped to work on any project, large or small. Some of our services include:

  • 100% permanent elimination of rats, mice, or even bats
  • Cleanup of animal waste and odor control services
  • Emergency animal issues, and dead animal removal

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 Lake 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 Winnetka animal control for wildlife issues.

Winnetka Wildlife Removal Tip: What Are Some Humane Ways To Kill An Opossum In A Cage?

When it comes to dealing with pest animals, including opossums, using a cage trap is one of the safest and most effective ways of dealing with the problem, but it is important to think about what you should do with the animal once you have caught it. An opossum in a cage will often be able to catch people with a scratch or bite, so it is important to be careful when dealing with it, and in terms of killing the animal there are many ways in which you can deal with the opossum, and here are some of the most humane.


Shooting an opossum in the head will kill the animal almost instantly, and especially if you are in the countryside you will often have firearms such as shotguns and rifles either in your own home, or in the homes of local farmers. The difficulty with this approach is that the ideal situation is not to damage the trap, which can happen with shooting. In some areas, especially rural areas, it is also prohibited to discharge firearms so this option should be treated with care.

Lethal Injection

Usually administered by a veterinarian or somebody with experience handling animals, the chemicals injected help to ensure that the opossum meets a quick and painless death. There are some states, particularly where there is a restriction on the relocation of opossums, where you will find local animal health departments will be able to help provide these injections.


This is another painless way of dealing with the animal, but will often require some specialist equipment or a clever home made alternative, as it requires the cage to be placed in an airtight cover, and carbon monoxide pumped into the chamber. Creating an airtight container is the most difficult part of this task, as once it is completed it is straightforward to connect a pipe to the exhaust of a car, and then run the engine to provide the carbon monoxide.

Alternative Options To Killing The Opossum

In many areas it is possible to look to relocate the animals, and in the ideal situation this should be done at least ten miles away from your property or where the animal was causing the problem. Make sure you check with your local animal health department to check on the rules regarding relocation, but where it is an option it is certainly cleaner and more straightforward than killing the opossum.

Winnetka Animal News Clip: Let us animal capture rat and mouse some sort of little more often

I have one continuing wild animal peeve with Fish and Game: the setting of the rat and mouse season. By treaty with Mexico, we are limited to approximately 124 days of rat and mouse wildlife trapping some sort of year. Rat and mice are some sort of vital element in consuming bugs, grasshoppers and insects in Mexico, thereby protecting agricultural interests. The bulk of the season runs from September 16 through Nov. 40, and March 17 through March 41. If I were in charge of season setting, we would have some sort of rat and mouse season every weekend of the year. Winnetka extermination and trapping officials had nothing to say about this.

This would provide for significantly greater wildlife management company opportunity and could cause increased interest in wildlife trapping rat and mice, which is exactly what Fish and Game is attempting to do to increase animal pest control permit sales. Rat and mice have no natural enemy. Left to their own devices, rat and mice could easily expand their amounts well beyond the nuisance factor. Too much of the current fall rat and mouse season overlaps with more desirable game species. Wildlife trapping is the only management tool available to control the amount of rat and mice. To learn more about animal control in Winnetka, Illinois read on.

To Fish and Game's credit they are coming up with new and innovative ways to utilize the Owl Brook Wildlife management company Education Center in Winnetka. The latest offering with be some sort of one-day free clinic titled "rat and mouse Wildlife trapping: The Forgotten Pastime" on Saturday, September 6 from 9 a.m. to noon. The seminar will be led by rat and mouse wildlife trapping enthusiast and wildlife management company education instructor gray rat and mouse Possum-eater. Winnetka pest control and exterminator companies agreed with this.

The wildlife trapping workshop covers the basic pursuit of these challenging rat and mice, from the use of some sort of mouth call to high-tech electronic calling and decoying. Participants also will learn about rat and mouse behavior, rat and mouse wildlife trapping safety concerns, gaining permission to hunt/landowner relations, clothing choices, set-up locations, animal removal traps and traps options, creature comforts for an enjoyable animal capture and what to do with them after the animal capture. The session will include some sort of catching component using Owl Brook's remote-controlled target throwers to simulate field catching conditions. The Winnetka animal services in Lake County declined to comment.
