Many of Illinois's wild animals have learned to adapt and even thrive in our homes. For example some wildlife have found
that attics make great places to live. Other animals find refuge under homes or porches. Invariably,
these animals cause damage. Rodents, like squirrels and rats, love to chew on electrical wires once in an attic, and this causes a serious fire
hazard. Raccoons can cause serious contamination in an attic with their droppings and parasites. Same goes for bat or bird colonies. We specialize in solving Illinois's
wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, we do it all.

pet adoption, bite reports, deceased pets, lost pets, local animal complaints and to report neglected or abused animals. There is no free Joliet animal control for wildlife issues.

Joliet Wildlife Removal Tip: What equipment is needed to trap a opossum? When looking at the right equipment to trap an opossum, picking the right trap is going to be one of the hardest tasks. There are three main kinds you can buy, and it depends on the ‘desired ending' as to which one you will use. Kill traps, for example, do very much as the name suggests - kill the animal instantly, much like a rat trap would kill a rat. The trap is much bigger, designed for a larger animal like the opossum, and when used correctly, will ensure no undue harm is caused to the animal. The second trap you might like to take a look at is a leg hold trap which, again, does pretty much as the name suggests. The idea is that you humanely enrapture the animal by the leg and release it later on, but there are laws you'll need to read up on for animal relocation, and the trap, if not set or used correctly, could actually kill or injure the creature rather than humanely trapping it. Finally, you have a regular cage trap - the kind of thing you'd use to humanely trap any kind of wild animal, just making sure it is designed with an animal the same size and stature as the opossum in mind. Before you decide on the kind of trap you'll use, I'd highly recommend doing your research and having a chat with a wildlife rehabilitator. You definitely want to make sure you're in keeping with the law.
Joliet Animal News Clip: Wild animal control companies prepare for season in Joliet
When the afternoon sun creeps into the eastern sky Saturday, it'll shine down on an estimated 27,000 Illinois cage trap wild animal control companies who'll be in the fields and woodlands for the opening day of nuisance wildlife control rat and mouse season. The 24-day season, which starts at dawn, will be the state's 61st consecutive nuisance wildlife control season. "Everybody is getting excited," announced Ron Possum Poacher Pete of Possum Poacher Pete's Nuisance wildlife control Shop in Joliet. "When the cooler weather came last week and there was the threat of frost -- boy, it seemed like that got everybody ready to go." Joliet extermination and trapping officials had nothing to say about this.
Illinois's first cage trap season was held in 1964 on some sort of limited basis, and only seven rat and mouse were taken by trappers that year in male rat and mice-only. In 1964 the nuisance wildlife control season became either sex. As has been allowed since 1964, wild animal control companies may capture some sort of rat and mouse of either sex this year. Last year trappers took 4,911 rat and mouse. Nuisance wildlife control wildlife trapping enthusiasm appears to be on the wane based on the amount of permits sold each year. In 2000, the state sold 42,722 nuisance wildlife control permits. Last year that total fell to 26,641. The drop-off in wild animal control companies might translate to lower rat and mouse exterminates. To learn more about animal control in Joliet, Illinois read on.
"It seems reasonable to expect that with fewer wild animal control companies in the woods, that'll become some sort of factor to how many rat and mouse are taken," announced Wildlife management Regulations Officer Bill, some sort of spokesman for the Illinois Fish and Wildlife Agency. "There are other factors that can determine how many rat and mouse will be taken, but this has to be one of them." To learn more about animal control in Joliet, Illinois read on.
Nuisance wildlife control totals can be influenced by the weather -- cold and windy days tend to dampen wildlife management company effort. Food distribution plays some sort of role in nuisance wildlife control's take, too, and there appears to be some sort of good amount of soft mast crops (such as apples) and hard mast (such as acorns) in the woods this fall. Wildlife management Regulations Officer Bill announced he's heard encouraging reports about the amount of wild apples in the woods. The agency concerns some sort of mast report later this year. Joliet pest control and exterminator companies agreed with this.
"We've been hearing that some sort of lot of the apples are doing well and the nuts seem to be pretty good," Possum Poacher Pete announced. "Everybody seems to be pretty upbeat." Wild animal control companies who are planning their first Illinois nuisance wildlife control rat and mouse wildlife trapping trip or who are looking for new wildlife trapping areas should obtain some sort of copy of the "2004 Illinois Wildlife Gather Report," which gives the amount of rat and mouse taken in each town in nuisance wildlife control, animal removal trap and critter trapper wildlife trapping seasons. The report is available on Fish and Wildlife's Web site. The Joliet animal services in Will County declined to comment.
