Deck Exclusion

Decks are elevated flat surfaces that are usually found in backyards. They are often used for leisure purposes, providing a nice little space for sunbathing, barbecue parties, stargazing and the like. Although decks provide homeowners with all these conveniences, they usually forget that small and medium sized animals can easily enter and nest beneath their wooden decks. Animals like skunks, squirrels, raccoons, chipmunks, opossums, and rats are frequently found hiding below decks because it provides them with a dry and relatively safe nesting place.

These small critters can become troublesome. Imagine opening your shed or looking underneath your deck and seeing small creatures running around. Disturbing, isn’t it? Luckily, we offer animal wildlife control services that can help solve even the worst deck infestations.

Avoid Removing the Animals Yourself

No matter how tempting it may be, we highly recommend that you leave the animals alone. Attempting to capture the animals without using the proper equipment can be hazardous. These animals may carry various diseases and parasites that are easily passed on to humans and household pets. If you see a small hole under your  deck, avoid digging it out. Burrowing animals, like groundhogs, become extremely defensive when their burrows are bothered.

Do not attempt to exclude the critters without first consulting professional wildlife removal experts. Adult female animals sometimes give birth under these decks. If you exclude the mother and seal up all the entry points, the babies may eventually die and rot, causing severe odours.

Before conducting the deck exclusion, we always check the entire under-deck area to identify all the critters that have taken up residence. We also look for small cracks and holes that need to be sealed or covered up.

Here at Illiana Wildlife Services, we know how to effectively capture  and remove animals without damaging your precious decks. Our company firmly believes that wildlife exclusion procedures should be done as humanely as possible. We do our best to keep the animals safe. If you want to keep your deck as critter-free as possible, contact us now!

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!
