Exclusion

Animals, no matter how cute or interesting, can become a nuisance the moment they start invading your own private space. Here at Illiana Wildlife Services we usually get calls from distressed home and business owners. Although their stories and circumstances vary, their calls can be loosely summarized into the following sentence s: “Animals are ruining my lawn/roof/house! I tried everything and they just won’t go away, please help me remove them.”

Exclusion

Do you see yourself experiencing the same scenario?  If you find yourself worrying about the safety of your family, pets, and property due to the presence of these animals then you may need the help of a professional wildlife removal company. If you live in or around Chicagoland, Northwest Indiana, or Indianapolis, look no further because we offer humane animal exclusion services to these areas.

Why Animals Invade your Property

There are several factors that can affect your property’s susceptibility to animal infestation. A window left open or an uncovered garbage bin are only two of the several reasons, but sometimes things can be a bit more difficult to detect. Our workers are experts in wildlife control, and we have learned to see the world through the eyes of an animal. We will find and seal even the smallest cracks and holes that may have been otherwise left unnoticed.

Any animal found inside your home will be removed as humanely as possible. We do not want to harm these animals as we believe that unnecessary violence is never a good thing. Our animal exclusion methods are completely legal and we follow strict guidelines when working with animals.

Animal Proofing

Here at Illiana Wildlife Removal Services, we make animal proofing easy, convenient, and affordable for our customers. You may be wondering what animal proofing really means. Basically, animal proofing your home means that you prevent any kinds of wildlife from gaining access to your property. “Prevention is better than cure”, which is why many home and business owners prefer animal proofing over other methods of animal control. Although animal trapping and other forms of critter removal methods are effective, animal proofing is a great way to prevent wildlife-related issues that may happen in the future.

How Animal Proofing is Done

One important thing that we always keep in mind when conducting animal proofing is to make sure that we see the world through the eyes of an animal. It may sound silly but once you start to think about it, it is actually a smart strategy. We will conduct a thorough inspection of your property and look for things that could potentially attract unwanted animals such as skunks, raccoons, rats, beavers, etc. We will analyze your property intensively, from looking for holes under your decks to cutting off tree branches hanging on top of your roofs (some animals, like raccoons, are smart enough to climb trees to gain access to your chimney). We often look for food sources like trash bins and vegetable gardens, these things can attract animals like magnets.

Sealing Cracks and Holes

Once we have found all the possible factors that can attract animals, we start removing things that we can remove. We will also check the entire building for any animals that may have gotten inside, if any animal is found, humane animal removal methods will be used. Once we are 100% sure that no animal is hiding inside the building, we will start sealing the cracks and crevices. Cracks as small as one fourth of an inch can still cause trouble because bats small bats and mice can squeeze through them. We can also cover larger holes.

Importance of Animal Proofing

Our company offers various animal control services, all of which are perfectly safe and humane, but we still believe that animal proofing is one of the best methods that we can offer. Once animals have entered your home without you noticing, you are exposing yourself, your family, and your pets to various health hazards. Trying to conduct animal proofing without using the right equipment and insufficient knowledge can just waste your time and may even cause more problems in the future. It would be best to contact professional wildlife removal experts to perform these kinds of procedures. For inquiries regarding animal proofing, contact Illiana Wildlife Removal Services now!

Monrovia Wildlife Removal

Illiana Wildlife Services is your Monrovia animal trapping specialist. Critters are the creatures that can be found taking up residence in basements, lawns, yards, and attics of a house. We remove them all! For Monrovia wildlife removal, no provider can serve you better than us.

Wildlife or critters, such as raccoons and bats have been examined by scientists in Indiana. They found that some bats carry dangerous disease, such as roundworm and rabies. These diseases spread to humans through a bite or transmission of blood of a sick animal to the open wound of a human. If you are bitten while catching a sick bat or raccoon, seek medical assistance straight away and call a Monrovia wildlife control specialist.

There is a great risk of property damage if wildlife is present in your house. Attics are ideal shelter for wildlife animals such as squirrels, bats, snakes, raccoons, rodents and mice. The critters cause heavy loss to house owners by damaging whatever they can in an attic, such as costly insulation, thick electric wires, wooden furniture and ceiling. Like other critters, these wild animals answer the call of nature in the attic or basement filling the place with strong stink and piles of poop.

What we do is offer a flat rate and block all the little openings, cracks, gaps and holes on the outside of your attic to make certain no raccoon, squirrel or bat could get in and take up residence in your attic. Our Monrovia animal control experts specialize in removing critters, such as raccoons, bats, snakes and squirrels from attics, but they also have a lot of experience getting other animals out of your yard like skunks and moles. Lawns often get damaged because of the digging of skunks and moles.

Bats use attics to hibernate. For Monrovia bat removal, our experienced, well-trained pros use a special one-way door rather than use poison to kill the bats. Our technicians will close all doors, windows and hidden openings, gaps and cracks in your attic walls and roof and then set up the “door” to let the colony of bats out of the house.

Get rid of pests and we can give you our quote if you let us in your house for an inspection. Call us for all your Monrovia wildlife removal or control needs today!

Camby Wildlife Removal

Illiana Wildlife Services is your Camby animal trapping and wildlife pest management specialists. In fact, we serve all of Greater Indianapolis which is roughly a seven county area. We specialize in removal and control of animals in attics.  These are usually bats, raccoons, or squirrels, depending on the season. We are state licensed with the DNR for wildlife removal.

Once the critters are gone from your attic we can give you an estimate for any damage that they may have caused.  Animals can carry diseases like rabies or raccoon roundworm and that is always a concern, but usually the greater damage is due to the compaction that they do to your insulation, resulting in higher utility bills. They also can put holes in roofs or tear holes in soffit and or fascia. We fix it all. In many cases the damage caused by animals is covered by insurance.

We recently had a call in Camby because a woman had a bat flying in her home. We did an inspection and found that they did not have a bat infestation. They were glad we offered an affordable inspection rate.

We think that the way the way we price our jobs are a great deal for the customer. We quote a “flat rate” to remove the raccoons and squirrels from your attic and make sure they can’t return. Some companies charge per animal. You don’t know how many animals are up there. Call us for pricing!

Just because we specialize from removing animals from attic doesn’t mean we don’t take care of the rest. If you have ground hogs, skunks living under your deck or moles digging up your yard give us a call.  We would love to take care of that for you as well.

Bats are more common than one may think. If you have bats in your attic you need a bat exclusion. Bats are not trapped, instead they are allowed to release themselves through the use of a one way door called a Bat cone after every opening around the house that a bat can get in is sealed up. Since there are so many styles and conditions of homes we can’t quote this one over the phone but the good thing is we offer a reasonable inspection rate!

Not so long ago, we trapped and removed a raccoon from the attic of a house. The mammal had caused so much damage to the insulation that the owner was planning to sell her house. But she made an insurance claim and called us for attic repair in Crown Point. After we performed repairs, the condition of the attic improved to a great extent.

Raccoon Damage in Attic

These are some more pictures I have taken of raccoon damage in an attic I have been in recently.  When raccoons cause damage they really cause damage! Not only are their feces dangerous, which carry the raccoon roundworm, but I believe the real damage lies in the money that is wasted on higher heating bills over the lifetime of the home if that attic is not restored.

You see, raccoons in their activities trample your insulation down until it is only working at a small percentage of what it was before they got in your attic.  Lower R value = Higher heating bills.

The good news is that homeowners insurance covers damage caused by raccoons. For the cost of your deductible you can get an attic that is fully restored and is more energy efficient than before the raccoons got in your attic, actually saving money in the long run. Your insurance doesn’t just repair attics but all of the damage caused by the raccoons; whether it is damage to your roof or soffit or fascia.

We do pest control, animal trapping and damage repair including repairs to your attic and replacing insulation. We are licensed, bonded, and insured. We work with insurance companies or homeowners who wish to pay out of pocket.
