Illinois is full of wildlife, including snakes, squirrels, raccoons, skunks, opossums, and more. Wildlife removal is a complex field. I
recommend professional Springfield wildlife control services if you want to solve a critter problem legally and correctly. For example, it is necessary to perform correct
preventative repairs to keep pest animals a out of your house for good. We perform full building inspection, do the
the repairs and we also offer attic decontamination if necessary. Rats and mice love to live in attics, and can chew wires or leave droppings. In fact Springfield wildlife
frequently enter homes, and correct removal is not a simple task.
We also service the towns of Divernon, Cantrall, Tallula, Mechanicsburg, Buffalo, Chatham and also animal control in Loami, Pleasant Plains, Athens and pest control in Lowder, Lincoln's New Salem, Glenarm, Illiopolis, Auburn and wild animal services in Taylorville, Langleyville, Petersburg, Rochester, Riverton and wildlife management in Sherman, Greenview, Oakford, Dawson, Pawnee, New Berlin.
If you need assistance with a domestic animal, such as a dog or a cat, you need to call your local
for assistance. They can help you out with issues such as stray dogs, stray cats, vaccinations, licenses,
pet adoption, lost pets, and more. No county in Illinois will assist with wildlife control situations, and there is no free Springfield
animal control services for wildlife.

Springfield Wildlife Tip:
Is it legal to trap skunks - Because the skunk is not an animal that generally invades the interior of a home, it is usually considered legal to trap. Most homeowners, no matter how inexperienced at trapping, can usually manage to trap a skunk. The animals are docile and uncaring, and trapping can be done with hands-free methods to avoid potential rabies exposure. There are risks to trapping, and even if it is legal to trap skunks, you need to acknowledge that you might get sprayed in the process. Steps can be taken to avoid this hazard, but there are often circumstances beyond our control that make the process unpleasant. When trapping skunks, cage traps are the best option for homeowners. Lethal traps must be very carefully set or they won't work correctly, and the last thing you want to do is fuss with a skunk that is injured. A cage trap can be covered with a heavy tarp to prevent spraying. This also keeps the animal calm and prevents it from seeing you once you approach the trap. It is possible that the skunk already sprayed from being startled by the trap, but the tarp will keep your hands from too much contact with the substance.
Springfield, IL Animal News Clip:
Wildlife - Rabies-infested bat bites citizen
"A bat's bite is so small a person may not know that they have been bitten," said Laura Bat Regulation Exterminator, field supervisor of Springfield Animal Services. "The bite is about the size of a pin prick. If someone sees a bat on the ground, he should cover it with something, like a bucket, and notify Animal Services." Hooray for wild creatures and critters!
She warns the public never to handle a bat or other animal that is acting unusual. Bats tend to stay away from people, and a sign of rabies infection is no fear of humans. Sometimes, the only symptom shown is paralysis, which results in the inability to move. For more on Springfield wildlife, read on.
"Normally, you shouldn't see a bat on the ground, and most bats on the ground are infected with the disease," she said. "We've picked up eight bats since Wednesday all over Springfield, so they aren't isolated to any certain area." Snakes and coyotes are not all mean.
The most Animal Services can do to prevent the spread of rabies is to educate residents about the situation and advise people to leave bats and other wild animals alone, Bat Regulation Exterminator said. Remember to treat the wild animals of Springfield, Illinois, with respect and care.
While it's good to know if your fletching is coming into contact with your rest, it's also a pain to have to refletch every time you get a wavy vane. Wavy vanes can be straightened with a hair dryer. Put a hair dryer on its hottest setting and heat your wavy vanes. You also can try dipping the vanes into a pot of boiling water. Often they will straighten up and be good as new. When you're animal exterminating near a friend and nothing is moving, end your trap with a mini-drive. One wildlife trapper remains in position while the other leaves his stand a half hour early and begins a slow, animal exterminating stalk toward the other wildlife trapper's stand.
