Wildlife Problems in Springfield, IL

The state capital, Springfield, IL, is a densely populated city that spans two counties. As with most Midwestern states, Illinois sees hot summers as well as cold winters, which means that pest problems occur all year.

Raccoon Raids

Drawn to Springfield neighborhoods by the aroma of trash and compost, raccoons create huge messes by tipping over garbage cans in search of a meal. A raccoon will also den close to food sources, which increases the risk of injury and disease for people and pets.

Squirrel Nests

These pests prefer to nest in high places such as trees, rooftop gutters, or the upper levels of homes. Squirrels in attics are a problem for Springfield residents, as the animals tear up insulation, gnaw on wood rafters, stain ceilings with waste, and chew on wires.

Bat Trouble

Illinois is home to many types of bats, and the animals' natural habitats are shrinking. As a result, bat colonies may take shelter in attics or outbuildings. The buildup of feces beneath roosts can develop Histoplasma mold. Inhaling the spores of this fungus can lead to respiratory issues.

Other Illinois Pests

Moles and voles are an annoyance for Springfield residents. Voles tear the bark from young trees and feed on roots, damaging costly landscaping plants. Various mole and vole species also tunnel in lawns, creating unsightly runways and holes.
