Wildlife Pests in Waukegan, IL

The lake-front city of Waukegan, IL,sits just north of Chicago. With plenty of access to water and both metropolitan and rural areas nearby, many types of wildlife thrive in the local neighborhoods.

Raccoons

These clever pests survive easily in Illinois cities, where their curious nature and dexterous paws get them into all kinds of trouble. A raccoon often digs in compost piles and gardens in search of food.The animals are also fond of trash and will tip unsecured bins to sort through the contents.

Squirrels

Fox squirrels and gray squirrels are both common in Waukegan yards, where they feed on fruits and birdseed. While the pests bury nuts in lawns, they are more damaging in homes. A squirrel that finds its way into the attic may rip up insulation or chew on electrical wiring.

Bats

Since bats are rabies carriers in Illinois, caution is advisable when dealing with an indoor infestation. These pests are not hostile towards people, but they will bite and scratch when cornered. In addition, inhaling dried bat feces can transmit histoplasmosis, a serious respiratory disease.

Rabbits prefer to live on the edges of open areas, making suburbs their ideal habitat. Homeowners frequently find the animals under porches or eating garden vegetables.

 

Skunks are another pest that finds meals in yards.They dig for grubs in lawns and will deliver a dose of foul-smelling skunk spray at anyone who gets too close.
