What problems do wildlife cause?

Most of the calls we get are because homeowners hear animals scurrying around inside the attic or walls. Most of the damage inside a houes or attic is unseen. Rodents like squirrels, mice, and rats often chew on electrical wires. Wildlife such as raccoons, bats, birds, opossums, and rats spread several diseases that humans can and do catch, such as Histoplasmosis, Salmonella, Leptospirosis and more. Many critters leave droppings and urine in an attic or cause mold or odor problems. We also handle animals outside the house. It could be a critter that has dug a large hole next to your house, or a raccoon in your garbage cans, an opossum that is stealing pet food, or a skunk living under your deck, causing an odor problem. Some animals destroy your garden or landscaping. Or perhaps you are simply scared of snakes. Whatever the problem is, our wildlife experts can remove the source of the problem, and prevent it from happening again. We are not a Lake County extermination company, nor pest control.

Lake County wildlife removal - article of the month

Groundhog Exterminator
Groundhogs are also known as Lake County raccoon removal woodchucks. They are typically found in wooded areas and open pastures. Due to their voracious appetite they are unwelcome guests in most gardens. Two adult groundhogs can eat almost your entire garden in one night. They are active mostly during the warm parts of the day. They hibernate from October to February. So, if your unwelcome guest finds your home to be a suitable place to build their den, you might be stuck with them for a while.

Are groundhogs destructive?
The groundhog's tendency to dig elaborate Lake County snake removal dens make them quite destructive. They can build dens underneath your home, porch, shed or even garage. They remove large amounts of soil, and this can compromise the foundation of your building.

One of the ways to get rid of Lake County rat control groundhogs is fumigation. The entrances to their dens are sealed off and a cartridge of toxic gas is placed inside the tunnel. The area will be inspected to see if there are any openings where the gas can escape. It will be closed off to seal the Lake County bird control animals inside. It will kill all of the groundhogs present inside the den. You can then replace the sand that has been excavated and seal the carcasses inside. This should not be done while the groundhogs are hibernating as the sleeping chamber will be sealed off and the gas cannot get to them. Few extermination companies will be equipped to deal with wild animals. They are better suited to getting rid of insects inside your home. There are companies that specialize in underground pest extermination. Some of them will insert a hose attached to the tailpipe of a car. The carbon monoxide will kill the animals that are present inside the den.

A more humane option
A more humane way to go is to live trap the Lake County bat removal groundhogs. You place a baited trap outside the entrance to their den and wait for them to leave. Once the offending critter has been apprehended you need to inspect the den for babies. If there are any present you can relocate them along with the mom. You need to check your local laws regarding relocating nuisance animals before doing this. A wildlife removal company will be able to discuss your options with you. They will handle the setting of the traps and will remove the groundhogs once they have been caught.

Keeping them out
Prevention is better than Lake County rodent extermination cure. A fence is an effective way of keeping your property free of groundhogs. It is also important to keep a close eye on areas they might find appealing and make sure that they are unable to enter through there. Closing all holes in the façade of your home is the first step in ensuring that no unwelcome guests are able to gain access to your home.
