Merrillville Animal Removal

At Illiana Wildlife Services, we have wildlife pest exclusion experts with a lot of training and experience under their belt. Not so long ago, we got a call to deal with an animal problem that was completely new to us. A restaurant located in the Merrillville rt. 30 area made a call to us. The caller explained that they wanted us to catch a sugar glider that had taken up residence in their store. That was a pet sugar glider and most likely, it escaped while its owner was not paying attention. Since we had no experience dealing with a case like this, we put our heads together and came up with a solid plan.

When we got the call, the restaurant was open. We decided to hang on until the restaurant was closed. Once the restaurant was closed, it would become easier for us to search for the animal. We wanted to perform a thorough inspection with a hope to spot and catch the sugar glider. We had an option two if the first one wouldn’t work: the option two was to set up live traps with a fruit on them as bait in the ceiling girders.

A few hours after we got the call from the restaurant, our phone rang again. The call was from the same restaurant. The manager said that they had caught the sugar glider and that they didn’t need our services. It would have been fun for us to catch the animal but we were still happy that they found it quickly. After all, we don’t specialize in sugar glider removal.

We offer our services all over Indianapolis, Northwest IN, and Chicago land. If you are looking for a Merrillville animal removal and wildlife pest management expert, please call us. And don’t worry we can catch a sugar glider for you if you have one in your attic or basement.

We specialize in raccoon removal, bat removal, and squirrel removal from attics and basements. We offer our services all over Chicago land, Northwest IN, and Indianapolis. If you ever need Merrillville animal removal please give us a call.  Even if its a troublesome  sugar glider!

Merrillville Wildlife Removal

Illiana Wildlife Services is your Merrillville pest solutions and animal trapping specialists. 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 and licensed and bonded general contractors in Merrillville. That means that 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 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. 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 an inspection!

Get rid of wildlife and be animal free today! Give us a call.

Flying Squirrels in Merrillville

2014 is over, and now we have 2015 ahead of us. In January 2015, we got a call from a house in Merrillville. The owner wanted to hire our services to catch some flying squirrels from his attic. We did just that.

After trapping the squirrels, we took them to a licensed rehabber. He will release them at the right time. Since it is very cold in January, removing the squirrels from their warm, comfy stashes of nuts and releasing them into the woods was not a good idea. There is a good chance that they would die of cold. So, we decided to hand them over to the rehabber.

Apart from the squirrels, we also trapped and removed a raccoon from the attic of a house located in Calumet City IL. After our experts removed the raccoons successfully, the owner visited his insurance company to file a claim for the damage caused to his attic by the raccoons. The raccoons tore holes in the roof of his house in a couple of days in addition to damaging the insulation paper.

Hopefully, 2014 is going to be a really busy year for us. So, if you have some squirrel trapping and wildlife control/removal job for us, please give us a call at 219-464-7966. We will be over the moon to help you.
