Flying Squirrels in Northwest IN

Flying squirrels in Northwest IN are not something that we deal with on a regular basis. They just don’t seem to be very common. So imagine our surprise when we got 3 calls that ended up being flying squirrels in one week!

Flying squirrels are rodents and have ever growing incisors as they love to chew. They are also nocturnal. When we get a phone call with a description of night time activity, it is going to be raccoons, bats, mice, or flyers. Usually, we can determine if it is or isn’t raccoons by a few more questions. They are large animals and their entry hole into your home is usually visible from the ground. That leaves us to determine if bats, mice or flying squirrels are the source of the noise.

The only way to correctly determine at that point is with a visual inspection. Bats have a very distinctive dropping, unlike rodents. Mice and flying squirrels dropping size is very similar but flying squirrels tend to use toilets (one distinct area to use as a bathroom), as opposed to mice, which defecate everywhere.

Once the animal is identified, we can remove and prevent reentry. Flyers can be excluded from a home with the use of one way doors similar to the same way we do with bats. While we can and do trap a lot of animals a year, it always makes me feel good when we can come up with a humane solution that works for people and animals alike.

If you are getting a scratching noise in the middle of the night, give us a call. We would love to help!

Dealing with Bats in the Winter

Just got a call where a customer in Porter County Indiana was hearing something in their attic at night. Typically, that ends up being raccoons or mice, but they suspected bats because they had bat guano on their porch during the summer.

Bats have very unique time sensitive regulations guiding when they can be removed from attics in Indiana, which are laid out by the DNR. The first one is that between May 15 and August 15, we can’t exclude the bats from your homes due to the fact that a possible maternal colony may have non flight babies that may be trapped in the attic when the adults are excluded, leaving a environmentally beneficial animal with a low reproductive rate at risk. (It can also save you from having dead bats in your attic or walls, potentially saving you from an odor problem.)

They have some ecological pressures due to the White Nose Syndrome. The second time of the year when we can’t do bat exclusions is when the nighttime temps are below 50 degrees. Bats hibernate when it is cold and they are unlikely to use the one way doors used to facilitate the bat exclusion. The other reason is that when a bat that does fly out through a one way door, it is at risk of not making it through the winter. The stress of finding a new place to hibernate and finding food sources would be fatal.

Dealing with Bats in Wintertime

So how did we handle our customer’s situation? Well, first of all, she wasn’t happy to hear that she has to live with bats for another six months or so, but she understood. What we ended up doing, was to give her an estimate for the bat exclusion, take 50% down, and then spent half a day going around and making as much of her home as bat proof as we could. All we left was the two entry points that the bats were currently using. We will then monitor the weather and when conditions are right, we will return in the Spring and hang the one way doors.

 The reason for this is because bat jobs can take many hours. With the small window of time in the Spring to remove bats (roughly around the beginning of April to May 15), we wouldn’t have the time to get to our back log of customers and all the springtime mother raccoons with baby calls that we get that time of the year. Therefore, we have to give ourselves a head start.

The system works well, and we are good at what we do. If you hear scratching in your attic this winter, especially after a drastic temperature change, either up or down, you may have bats and may want to give us a call and get an inspection. We would love to help.

La Porte County Wildlife Removal

There are many pest control companies in Indiana, United States, but Illiana Wildlife Services is one of the companies that use only most humane methods for La Porte County wildlife removal and attic restoration La Porte County. As the season comes near, attics in La Porte County houses gets filled with wildlife animals like raccoons, rodents, mice, squirrels and bats, just to name a few.

An attic is a place in almost every house in Indiana that usually is not used for residence by humans. As a result, animals like raccoons and opossums tear holes into the roof and get in. They get into the attic and give birth to babies, urinate and defecate in the same place. When they are large in number, the feces piles up making your attic produce nasty odor. These animals play around in the attic damaging electrical wiring, old furniture, ceiling and insulation.

With the passage of time, the feces of raccoons, bats, mice and other animals in the attic piles up which results in diseases. Some of the common diseases you can get if you get bitten by a bat or raccoon with rabies include rabies and roundworm.

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!

Speedway Wildlife Removal

Illiana Wildlife Services is your Speedway wildlife removal experts. We cover all of the Greater Indianapolis metropolitan area. We specialize in the 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 think that 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 wildlife pest management from the 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 an affordable inspection rate!

Mooresville Wildlife Removal

Illiana Wildlife Services is your Mooresville wildlife removal and pest control specialists. The fact of the matter is we deliver our services all over Greater Indianapolis. In Mooresville, we can remove those seemingly un-harmful animals from that hollow part under your roof and ground floor. Yes, we are talking about the attic and the basement. With a license from DNR, we claim to be the most reliable provider in Indiana for Mooresville wildlife removal.

As soon as our specialists have removed all the dead and living insects and animals from your attic and/or basement, you will receive a quote from us for fixing all the damages caused by the critters. While animals in your attic could be infected with rabies but it is rare. The real damage is the physical damage they end up doing to your attic, basement and other parts of house.

For instance, your insulation paper gets severely damaged if you don’t get the raccoons, squirrels or other rodents off your attic. With their pointed teeth, these animals keep on chewing insulation paper, electrical wiring, any furniture lying there and the ceiling. You not only get higher utility bills but also get disturbed by noise in the attic.

We give more importance to our customers than money. Our pros will inspect your house, particularly the basement and attic so you’ll have an idea of how much you will have to spend for removing animals, doing cleanup and repairing damaged ceiling, attic and roof. We don’t charge per animal.

Aside from wildlife removal in Mooresville, such as raccoon removal, squirrel removal and bat removal, we also take care of the rest of wildlife pest management problems, like skunks in your yard or garden and skunks below your deck.

You may have no idea that bats could also be a problem, especially if there are a lot of them in your attic. Like other wildlife animals, they also defecate and urinate inside your attic spreading filth and producing noise. We don’t feel the need to trap bats; instead, we set up a one-way door for them to go out of the place.

For Mooresville wildlife removal in attics and basements, we do offer a flat rate after a good inspection of your house. This is because we need to know the size of your house, amount of infestation and damage caused before getting hired.
