One of the most popular and most effective methods of resolving nuisance wildlife issues is by
Trapping them. Although a large majority of our management services requires live trapping, we do
utilize many other devices, equipment, options and procedures to eliminate nuisance wildlife issues.
Many factors will determine the best and most humane method of resolving the conflict. Illinois State
Wildlife Services strongly practices BMP, known as “Best Management Practices” Our primary goal is to
use the best, quickest and most humane methods of removal and control to protect your family,
children, pets and property from the threat, dangers, and disease associated to nuisance wildlife.

With the combination of population growth, loss of green space, and changing laws and regulations, the coyote populations have increased and expanded through the United States, and specifically here in Illinois. Illinois State Wildlife Service recognizes this, and the challenges that people, pets, and municipalities face. Our fully trained staff of professionals can assist you with proper and accurate education and solution to help prevent conflict. Although coyotes do not pose a great threat regarding damage to structure, they do pose a very real threat through their aggressive behavior. If they are still nursing or have contracted a disease they will be unpredictable. Coyotes carry a wide range of disease, with the most concerning ones being rabies and distemper. Coyotes also are very susceptible to socorotic mange.

Coyotes should be avoided at all costs. If you have any questions or concerns regarding coyotes please contact us for additional education and information. We can discuss your options and management programs to help keep you safe and resolve the conflict.

Deer populations in and around our urban areas, like neighborhoods, city parks, and other recreational areas, can cause a great deal of damage, to lawns, gardens, trees, and shrubbery. With specific laws and regulations that may restrict certain options and procedures for deer control, specifically trapping and/or eradication - Illinois State Wildlife Service does have programs and options for you that can legally and safely assist you with deer damage control. We begin with educating our clients with the prevention process. With our experience and assistance, we can help to protect and preserve your lawns, gardens, trees, and shrubbery from the damages and defisation of deer. The white-tail deer is a beautiful animal and our programs do not in any way hurt, harm, or harass the deer.

Rodents cover a wide range of "critters" that include: mice, rats, moles, voles, shrews, chipmunks, squirrels, and others. These rodents account for millions of dollars of damages each year in the United States alone. It is also estimated that 20-25 percent of all fires that are determined as "CAUSE UNKNOWN" may be due to rodents gnawing on wires, gas lines, etc. A few centuries ago the 'Black Plaque', carried by rats, caused the deaths of approximately 25 million people. This disease spread from the rats to humans by fleas carried by the rats. As with all animals, disease and the destruction they cause, must be controlled and monitored. Illinois State Wildlife Service specializes in rodent control, exclusion, and management. Our response to all rodent issues is to first determine the cause of the problem, then create an eradication program, followed by prevention and exclusion, and finally to create a long-term maintenance program. If you are experiencing any type of rodent problem or issues please contact us.

BAT FACTS 

There are many myths and misunderstandings surrounding bats. One myth is that bats are rodents; this is false. Bats are actually small flying mammals and have one to two young per year, referred to as pups. Another myth is that bats eat mosquitoes. Although this is true, all bats located in Illinois feed on a wide variety of insects, including mosquitoes. Here in Illinois, there are 13 species of bats, however, the most common that we encounter are: the big brown bat, little brown bat, eastern red bat, and the silver-haired bat. Bats are protected and may not be shot, trapped, held confined, or transported. If you encounter a bat in your home, notify us or your local animal control professional for assistance. 

WHAT SHOULD I DO IF I HAVE A BAT IN MY HOUSE

All contact with bats should be avoided. Illinois state wildlife service handles over 100 nuisance bat complaints per year. Our wildlife specialists and staff are professionally trained to help assist you and handle all bat situations. If you have a bat in your home, try and confine it to the room that it is in and contact us. Do not handle the bat with your bare hands. Another option is to confine it to a room or section of your home then open a door or window so the bat can fly out on its own.

If you suspect bats are entering your home, attic, etc. call us for a free inspection and evaluation.

BAT EXCLUSION AND RESTORATION

Illinois State Wildlife Service performs professional bat exclusions and restorations for both residential and commercial customers. We will exclude all of the bats from your home and/or structure and make your home bat free and safe. The first step in bat removal is to install excludes, also referred to as one-way tubes or bat cones. Once all of the bats have been removed, the rest of the exclusion process can be conducted. Lastly, if the bats were in your attic space, we will provide you with an estimate to remove any and all soiled insulation, deodorize, and sanitize the attic space, as well as replace it with new insulation. Our inspector will present you with all of our services and options.

BAT CONCERNS AND DISEASE

Please note: Bats do carry rabies, a life-threatening viral disease. They can also spread histoplasmosis through airborne spores found in their guano (bat droppings). Additional concerns are: fleas, lice, mites, and bat bugs. Some of these can be transmitted to humans. 

For additional information and concerns regarding bats, exclusion, and disease control, contact us at Info@illinoisstatewildlifeservice.com.

Did you know that the United States is home to over 1100 different species of birds? Illinois alone has approximately 400 species in the state, some that are resident birds and other that migrate through. 

Although this number of bird species is incredible, the majority of these birds are protected by various laws and regulations. At Illinois State Wildlife Service we can help with a wide range of bird issues regarding education, exclusion, and removal. Birds classified under the nuisance wildlife code include: the european starling, house sparrow, and pigeon. Additional birds that we can assist with are woodpeckers, geese, barn swallows, and many more; however, these secondary birds listed require special handling, procedures, and permits. For more information regarding education, law, regulations, and protocol for handling these bird species, contact us at info@illinoisstatewildlifeservices.com.
