What problems do wildlife cause?

Most of the calls we get are because homeowners hear animals scurrying around inside the attic or walls. Most of the damage inside a houes or attic is unseen. Rodents like squirrels, mice, and rats often chew on electrical wires. Wildlife such as raccoons, bats, birds, opossums, and rats spread several diseases that humans can and do catch, such as Histoplasmosis, Salmonella, Leptospirosis and more. Many critters leave droppings and urine in an attic or cause mold or odor problems. We also handle animals outside the house. It could be a critter that has dug a large hole next to your house, or a raccoon in your garbage cans, an opossum that is stealing pet food, or a skunk living under your deck, causing an odor problem. Some animals destroy your garden or landscaping. Or perhaps you are simply scared of snakes. Whatever the problem is, our wildlife experts can remove the source of the problem, and prevent it from happening again. We are not a Chicago extermination company, nor pest control.

How to remove a wild animal from the chimney
It is a normal occurrence to hear noises in your chimney at some point and the truth is that there is a good reason as to why there are these noises. The two common situations include: a wild animal especially is stuck in the chimney or a raccoon has decided to use your chimney as life site. Regardless of the situation it is important to ensure that the correct measures are undertaken to remove them from the chimney. You should not under any circumstances try to burn or smoke the animals out of the chimney. Most wild animals usually mistake the chimneys for habitat and they have no clue that they are invading a no go zone. You are therefore required to identify the reason why the wild animals are trapped in your chimney before coming up with the best way to evacuate them. Our Chicago rodent extermination services can safely identify the critter and solve the problem for you.

How to remove raccoons from the chimneys
It is the most common occurrence in the chimneys especially during the summer and the spring seasons. If this is the case, you will hear most movements especially during the day and other sounds of precisely newly born. There is no need to panic because in this situation the wild animals will always move out of the chimney when the cubs are old enough to slightly depend on themselves. The length varies depending on the type of animal that has found shelter in your chimney whereby others may take longer than expected to move out. To evict them, you can use certain criteria that will ensure that all the occupants of your chimney escape unharmed. Mothers always prefer dark places that are quiet and unlikely to attract predators. You can create opposite conditions if your chimney qualifies to be a habitat and the raccoon will be driven out as soon as possible. Here are some of the techniques that you can apply in order to drive out the raccoons and the best time to carry out such an operation is just before dusk because mothers will never risk transferring their young ones in broad daylight because of security reasons. Use the best deterrents just before dusk and ensure that they will work towards driving the family in your chimney away. When this is done you can come up with a slight destruction for instance that will disrupt their peace at night. You can put a radio in the fireplace and tune to some rock or rap music. You have to be patient and give them time because they are likely to take some time before they evacuate the chimney. When they leave the chimney, ensure that you fix it to prevent future invasion. Chicago raccoon removal can remove them for you, with special tools and methods.

Second situation: Wild animals stuck in the chimney
Most small animals like squirrels and birds are likely to stick in the chimney and if this is the case you will hear some ranting and struggles within the chimney. If a bird keeps on flapping its wings in the chimney then you have to assume that it is stuck and you to safely remove it from the chimney. The easiest way is to ensure that the dumper is open and that the door to the fire place. With this the bird will drop into the fire place and it will be unharmed. There are other chimneys that lack doors and if this is the case then you can create temporary doors on the opening. Once the bird has safely landed on the fireplace you will gently wrap it with a piece of cloth and then take it outside and carefully have him released. It is very easy to release an animal that is stuck in the chimney because in most instances it will relocate willingly unlike for the raccoon situation. If the bird flies in the house after its release ensures that you treat it gently to avoid hurting him. You can comfortably do this by ensuring that all the windows and doors are open. If a rat is in the chimney, our Chicago rat control experts can get it out.

Other small animals
Animals like squirrels are also likely to stick in the chimney and smoking them out is not the safest way to release them. You can tie a thick rope and lower it from the chimney and ensure that it reaches the dumper so that the stuck animal can climb down. The stuck animal is likely to climb down the rope during the day and if you do not have a rope then you can use makeshift rope made of bed sheets that have been knotted. The trapped animal may fall in the fireplace and if this is the case then you can come up with a trap that is baited in order to capture it. There is no need to panic because most of them are in a state of shock. When the animal is trapped you can safely release it into the wilderness without harming it. Can a snake get stuck in there? If so, our Chicago snake removal team could remove it, but to be honest, that's not a situation we've seen. Bats commonly live in Chimneys. They can fly in and out. Call us for Chicago bat removal services. Finally, sometimes a bird such as a chimney swift will nest in the flu, or a bird will get stuck. Our full range of Chicago bird control services can help.

Chicago is near lake Michigan, and of course our cold climate means that wildlife activity slows down in the winter - but squirrels and rats are still very active during this time, and raccoons occasionally show up. In the summer, skunks, groundhogs, moles, and bats are more active.
