Urban Raccoon Removal in Chicago, Illinois

Coyotes, opossums, falcons, foxes and raccoons. Is this a nature preserve? Well, I guess it is—it is downtown Chicago. While urban living doesn\'t suit all animals, some thrive in urban settings. Raccoons are a great example. They have adapted to city living so successfully that, on average, urban raccoons live longer than rural ones. They sometimes have a higher population concentration in urban areas than in surrounding areas. Unfortunately, being packed into an urban or suburban environment does create a lot of opportunities for conflict between these animal and their human hosts.

Raccoon removal is necessary when the animals invade homes, seeking out attics, garages, crawl spaces or decks as safe places to nest and have their young. During the summer, the young move about and the mothers teach them to forage. During this time you will occasionally see whole families of animals out and about in search of food.

Where do raccoons find food in Chicago? Food is everywhere. Garbage cans, pet food, picnic scraps, and bird feeders are all food sources. Eliminate the food and you eliminate a reason for the animals to come onto your property.

Keep them off your property and they will never be tempted to move into your house. Cozy attics, warm chimneys, quiet crawl spaces and secure garage rafters all look a lot like hollow trees or small caves and are perfect places for baby raccoons to be safe and secure while mom is out gathering the next meal.

Careful building maintenance will help, but a very determined animal will make their own access by tearing off soffit, ripping loose siding and pulling off vents.

If you do get an animal in your house, you should call for raccoon removal right away. The longer the animal is there the worse the damage will be. These animals are not tidy and carry a number of diseases. Studies have shown that, on average nationally, urban wildlife populations have a higher disease rate than their rural counterparts.

There are some very fine wildlife control operators in the Chicago area. They have experience working with urban wildlife and treat the animals in a humane way, following good sense and local, state and federal law governing their capture, relocation or euthanasia. If you need raccoon removal, you have come to the right place. We can help you.

We solve many types of wildlife control conflicts in Chicago and surrounding areas. Give us a call if you need expert animal removal and/or live wildlife trapping. We can also perform an inspection of your property to evaluate the problem.

Many of the projects we solve involve raccoon families in attics and chimneys, mud swallow nests on stucco, woodpeckers drilling siding, voles and gophers destroying lawns, rats or squirrels thumping and bumping around inside walls and in attics, bat infestations, skunks stealing pet food and snakes living in crawlspaces and stone walls.

Along with physical damage and disease, wild animals also bring along disturbance and nuisance with all their noise and commotion and smell. Baby raccoons chirp and chitter like little birds; raccoons and rats will fight all night and keep people awake; skunk smell takes the cake, but have you ever smelled a dead animal in your ventilation system? We have seen much, much more than these problems, but that is a general idea of the kinds of problems that my professional wildlife removal operators and I are prepared to solve.

Not only do my technicians and I trap and remove problem wild animals, we do a lot of other dirty work, too. Don't hesitate to call us for dead animal removal, pigeon waste cleanup, bat guano removal, mouse droppings, decontamination, repairs, above ground and below ground rodent slick fencing, odor control for skunk spray, and the like. We are a full service pest control company with a wide range of animal control solutions.

I have been in the professional wildlife control business for many years. My favorite stories and experiences are removing bats from schools and churches.

For pigeon and bird control, bat removal, or relief from other pest animals, call our wildlife management experts. Many nuisance wildlife companies offer critter capture and control; our wildlife operators provide professional pest wild animal management. We remove the following AND MORE:

  • Bats from attics, eaves and belfries

8-Foot Long Snake Hanging from Chicago, Illinois Garage

Out of Control Raccoons Wreck Chicago Residence

CHICAGO Two groups of raccoons have ripped holes into a local Chicago residence.

\"This is our second group of raccoons in the last few months,\" said homeowner Bryan Jones.

Jones said that when he discovered the first group living his in attic he hired a local man to trap and provide raccoon control. The man removed the animals and also fixed the cylinder vents they wrecked in order to get into the attic. Then two months later, another family of raccoons broke into a triangular vent high up in the eaves under the roof. They were strong enough to pull back the metal and get into the attic, Jones said.

\"We want to get rid of them once and for all,\" he said. \"We\'ve lived here for 12 years, and have seen them in the yard and even trapped a few, but this is the first year they have invaded the house.\"

Jones hired another local wild animal remover technician, Jim Russell, with the hopes of controlling the raccoon situation once and for all.

\"I just don\'t want my house to become the raccoon hotel,\'\" he said. Russell assessed the situation, Jones said, and told us that once raccoons are inside of an attic, they keep coming back. Other raccoons can smell that one of their kind lived in the area before.

\"Sometimes a raccoon will grow up in a place and then leave the nest, then when they are ready to find their own home, they remember, hey, that place was pretty warm, let\'s go back,\" said Russell.

Russell also said females break into homes because they are looking for a place to make their dens. Male raccoons can smell the female and usually try to get into the den so they can attack and kill the babies.

\"They want to be the top boar raccoon in the area,\" said Russell.

Jones said he was really surprised the second group of raccoons was able to get in through the metal on the vent.

Russell said he was not surprised.

\"Raccoons have extremely strong hands and can rip things open,\" said Russell. \"You cannot outguess them.\"

Russell trapped the second family of raccoons and removed them from the area. He repaired the areas where the animals got into the attic and suggested other repairs to the Jones family to try to prevent future animals from inhabiting the area. He also cleaned out the attic area and provided professional odor control.

\"I hope that now this situation will be under control,\" said Jones.
