Wildlife Pests in Evanston

Just north of Chicago, Evanston, IL, sits near the shores of Lake Michigan. The mix of urban and suburban areas is perfect for various pest wildlife to thrive. Some of the most concerning local animals are raccoons, skunks, and bats.

Dealing with Raccoons

Recognizable due to its ringed tail and black mask, the raccoon is a frequent visitor to Evanston neighborhoods. These pests dig through trash to find an easy meal and even steal pet food. Raccoons are rabies carriers and also shed dangerous roundworm eggs in their feces.

Skunk Damage

Another problem animal is the skunk, which takes shelter under buildings, sheds, and porches. In addition to their horrible smell, skunks also affect yards. These pests dig for grubs and leave unsightly holes in lawns.

The Problem with Bats

Bats provide a natural form of mosquito control but can also become a health hazard for the people of Evanston. The pests roost in attics and crawl spaces, leaving behind large amounts of bat droppings. This waste can carry the fungus that causes histoplasmosis, a respiratory ailment.
