Illinois is full of wildlife, including snakes, squirrels, raccoons, skunks, opossums, and more. Wildlife removal is a complex field. I recommend professional Peoria wildlife control services if you want to solve a critter problem legally and correctly. For example, we specialize in animals in the attic, which have broken into the house and almost always have a nest of baby animals. 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 Peoria wildlife frequently enter homes, and correct removal is not a simple task.

County Animal ServicesDOG or CAT: If you need assistance with a domestic animal, such as a dog or a cat, you need to call your local Peoria County Animal Services for assistance. They can help you out with issues such as stray dogs, stray cats, vaccinations, licenses, pet adoption, lost pets, and more. If you have a wildlife problem, you can try calling the Peoria County animal services, and see what they have to say, but they will certainly not help you with a complex wildlife problem such as critters in your attic. They are a free government agency that helps with dog and cat issues only.

Peoria Wildlife Tip:
Is there any poison for rats - Rodent poisons are in most all-purpose stores. Is there any reliable poison for rats? Yes and no. Poison will kill rats; make no mistake about that. There are some definite problems, however, when considering this type of control method. The first issue with poison is that many rats will not eat it. A block of poison is made to be as palatable as possible, but if better food is easily gained, rats will ignore the toxin. Rats also avoid poison because some of them have experienced it before. The way a rat feeds prevents many successful attempts at poisoning. Rats are scavengers, and like others of their kind, sample new food before indulging. If a rat gets sick from eating a new substance, the rodent will forever avoid that item in the future. Rate of ingestion is not the biggest issue when dealing with poisons. Rats that have eaten the block and died will not usually be out in plain sight. These little creatures have eased into the spaces of your walls and ceiling. The bodies will begin to decompose and will create a dreadful odor. The only way to be relieved of this smell is to find all of the bodies and remove them from the home.


Peoria, IL Animal Control News Clip:
Pest Regulation - House rat and mouse move little, despite heavy exterminating

In her findings through June, she found that females moved in an average area of one-third of a square mile area and dollars moved in an average three-quarters of a square mile area. The largest pest regulation company in Peoria was interviewed, but shared nothing.

Young bucks, those about a year old, and most prone to movement, traveled an average of five to seven miles. Many house rat and mouse biologists had thought the young dollars would have moved even farther. Not all in group get infected: So far, five of the 78 dead house rat and mouse have tested positive for the disease. One was a male rodent and four were females. This is a departure from the normal no-pest policy of the area..

The four females lived in three social groups. In two of the social groups, no other house rat and mouse became infected with the disease. That surprised The termite and mouse professional. "We fully predicted that once we had one positive female in the social group, we would see rapid transmission," The termite and mouse hard-working said. "We have not found that yet." The termite and mouse hard-working said her research captures house rat and mouse movement in the zone in Dane and Illinois counties, where factors such as topography, food sources and potential mates dictate how house rat and mouse move. The termite and mouse hard-working said the results might be different in southeastern Wisconsin, which has also been hit by the disease. Here, with cropland and forests significantly increased fragmented, house rat and mouse might be forced to travel longer distances to "make a living," he said. How the disease showed up in Walworth County and in one location in Kenosha County, for example, is unclear. "This is something we still do not ever know," The termite and mouse hard-working said. No members of the Peoria Pest Society could be found to issue a statement.

It might be a 165-class white-tailed buck bagged on a kill in Nebraska or an 80-pound doe tagged by a boy on his first "real" rodent hunt. Whatever it might be, a lot of effort is spent each year getting game to pest controllers so the thrill of the kill and the majesty of the hunter's quarry can be remembered for years to come. Unfortunately, what the pest controller gets sometimes can't be preserved the way the proud fumigator would like for it to be. Continued next week ...Peoria pest control.
