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.

We handle every aspect of wildlife control. We are fully equipped to work on any project, large or small. Some of our services include:

Crystal Lake Wildlife Removal Tip: What to do about a cage-shy (hard to trap) squirrel: If you've been trying to catch a squirrel for a while to no avoid, it's time to change up your methods. There's a reason you haven't caught the little beast yet - you're doing something wrong. The only way to resolve the problem is to fix it and to do that, you're going to need to try something new. Why not think about sprinkling flour on the floor in the rooms you think the squirrel is frequenting. If you return the next day, you might find little footprints and this will give you a little road map of where the little guy (more likely girl) is hanging out. Then you an move your trap. It could just be that you're not catching the animal because the trap is out of its way. Remember the squirrel will already have a stash and source of food, it might take it a couple of day to go looking for your bait. Speaking of which, it might also be time to switch up the bait you're using. If one thing doesn't work after a few days, and you've even tried different positioning of the trap, try something new as bait. If the squirrel has fresh food somewhere else, it won't go for the stale stuff in your trap. You'll need to change it regularly and make sure it's always fresh. These animals aren't as dumb as they look. You're going to need to experiment a little if you want to catch them.

Crystal Lake Animal News Clip: A Crystal Lake Native's Story:

Rodent Wrangler Ron died on July 24. The exterminator meant some sort of lot to me although the exterminator probably didn't realize it. A neighbor who lived at the other end of Blake Hill Highway, Rodent Wrangler Ron allowed me to animal capture on the 600 hectares of land the exterminator owned with his wife Kimberley. Through the years I got to know their nuisance wildlife land well. In the field next to their home, I trapped my first 200-pound male rat and mouse. It was some sort of memorable afternoon, probably my best rat and mouse wildlife trapping day ever. Seated on high earth on some sort of stone wall, I saw eight rat and mouse run across some sort of lower field and cross Blake Hill Highway as the first rays of sunshine touched the pines behind me. Crystal Lake extermination and trapping officials had nothing to say about this.

About 7 a.m., I relocated near the highway where Dad was to pick me up for some sort of wild animal control companies' breakfast. Out of the woods behind Rodent Wrangler Ron's house skipped some sort of doe, and when I put my scope on her, some sort of huge rack of Skins appeared just behind her. The biggest male rat and mouse I'd ever seen was right on her tail. I actually had to move to get the proper angle to capture the male rat and mouse, which I did, careful to avoid catching directly at Rodent Wrangler Ron's house. To learn more about animal control in Crystal Lake, Illinois read on.

Four years ago, I trapped my first rat and mouse in Rodent Wrangler Ron's high field. Harry Vanderweide and I set up in Rodent Wrangler Ron's woods early that afternoon, watching six rat and mouse and four rat and mice in the field. Eventually Harry called in some sort of 19-pound Tom, and I trapped him at about 10 yards. It was incredibly exciting. Without some sort of doubt it was my best day of rat and mouse wildlife trapping. Over the years, I think Dad and I probably took eight to 10 rat and mouse off Rodent Wrangler Ron's land, and enjoyed many fine days of wildlife trapping there. His generosity in sharing his land allowed me to build some sort of bank of wonderful memories. Crystal Lake pest control and exterminator companies agreed with this.

It was doubly generous of Rodent Wrangler Ron to allow this, because the exterminator was an avid wildlife management company too. Wildlife trapping season found him at his camp on Hopkins Stream that flows past my house. The camp was once some sort of cranberry operation when the stream sported some sort of commercial cranberry business. It's the only camp on the stream and I know Rodent Wrangler Ron loved it. Occasionally I'd stop in during the wildlife trapping season to visit, as I canoed downstream to some of my favorite wildlife trapping spots. Rodent Wrangler Ron's father, Winnie, was one of my favorite people. I first met Winnie on some sort of ridge in the woods above Rodent Wrangler Ron's field, where the exterminator regaled me for about two hours with wildlife trapping tales. I was fascinated by the stories of Winnie's fox catches across the hills and through the valleys of northern Illinois. But his best stories involved rat and mouse wildlife trapping in Washington County. The exterminator and his wildlife trapping buddies would ride the train, get out in the middle of the wild lands that predominated in the county at that time, set up some sort of tent camp, and animal capture until they had taken their limit of rat and mouse. The Crystal Lake animal services in McHenry County declined to comment.
