Winnetka Wildlife Tip:
How to get rid of rodents in my ceiling -Rodents come in all shapes and sizes, and the ones that like to live in attics are relatively small. The problem with attic critters is that there is rarely just one, and the type of animal will dictate how you get rid of it. The first thing you want to do is to figure out what kind of animal is inside of your home. You can do this by examining the damage in the building and any droppings that have been left behind. Squirrel droppings and rat droppings are very similar. You will need to look at the rest of the space to determine the animal. Squirrels will want an immediate opening to the outside. This is usually found in an eave or attic vent. Rats can use more indirect routes, even entering through a hole at the base of the home before climbing to the celling area. If squirrels are the problem, install a one way door trap or a repeater traps. Both of these devices will eliminate the squirrels quickly. Rats need to be trapped using lethal methods. Place baited snap traps in areas where the rat droppings and other markings have been found. Because rats return to these locations, traps will have a high success rate. 
Winnetka, IL Animal News Clip:
No dispute over legal pesticide for upcoming pest controlling season

Well it looks like we raccoon and squirrel wildlife trappers will not get to exterminate with illegal pesticides this year. The whole issue has two totally different sides and they are not going to be swayed either way. If you look at it, you can see both sides at work. The wildlife trappers and public want to join the rest of the state of Illinois and be able to legally exterminate over legal pesticide if they wish. This is the only reason that the bill made it to the house and senate. You really don't think that some representative sat around and dreamed this up; he was being pushed by his constituency. On the other hand you have the state of Illinois that has a different view about the feeding of game and pest controlling over legal pesticide. It has to be hard to come around and now say it is all right after years of preaching that it is wrong. I have little different view about the issue and why it is hard to solve. Despite this, wildlife removal services are not a free service in Lake County.

Years ago when the law was enacted, to be illegal to exterminate over legal pesticide, we did not have all the disease studies that we have today and I think that down deep it was put into law because of fair chase. Back when there were real wildlife trappers and a lot of woods, folks exterminated in their blue jeans and brown Dicker shirts with a shotgun. It was a true sport and the thought of putting out a pile of corn and capturing a raccoon and squirrel, of which there were not many, was unheard of. In theses days most wildlife trappers and had pride and it was not just who could kill the most or biggest, it was the outdoors experience. The Evanston SPCA could not be reached for a comment.

Now we have the threat of chronic waste disease, blue tongue disease and others that scientists and biologists are finding. This is the thought process of the biologists that are empowered to keep the health of the herd in check. Feeding wildlife like cattle could have negative effects and this is the reason for the biologists rejecting the thought of legal pesticide. The "legal pesticide Bill" actually made it to the house and senate, but was sent to the Department of Wildlife Fisheries and Parks biologists for the final answer on the matter. The word of the biologist would be the final word. This doesn't sit well with some wildlife trappers but I think the majority is ok with it and the ones that are mad about it have been pest controlling over legal pesticide anyway, so it really doesn't affect them anyway except possibly getting rid of the guilt about capturing raccoon and squirrel illegally. For more information on how to get rid of nuisance Illinois wildlife, read on.

Well no matter what you think about pest controlling over game, it is illegal for the 2006-2007 season. Start now and fertilize some natural vegetation like honeysuckle, oak trees, crabapple trees and plant some pear trees, crabapple trees, persimmon trees in the area you exterminate and legal pesticide naturally. Illegal pesticide is legal if you go about it in the right way. For more info about pest control for animals in Winnetka, call a local animal trapping company.
