Q&A with local District Manager

What are some of the most common wildlife issues that homeowners face in your area?
We address a lot of bat situations in the SW Illinois area along with squirrels and raccoons in attic spaces. We also do a fair amount of rodent (mice/rats) and bird control. We receive many calls on moles, skunks, and groundhogs damaging landscaping around homes.

How do the seasons affect wildlife activity in your area?
Call volumes generally increase in the spring due to the "critters" waking up from hibernation. Young are also born in the spring, which increases the opportunity for customers to hear or see more activity in both residential and commercial accounts. During the summer and fall months, bats, stinging insects, and burrowing animals such as moles, groundhogs, and skunks keep us busy. In the winter, our primary "critter" calls are squirrels and raccoons in attic spaces. These animals are trying to find warm areas to get out of the weather.

Any prevention tips for residents in your area?
Animals generally access homes through louvre vents, soffit roof interface gaps, roof vents, power fan vents, general foundation construction gaps, foundation vents, and open chimney flues, which should all be secured. Make sure any critter-related issues are addressed promptly.

When should homeowners call Critter Control?
When a homeowner has any concerns of unusual noises or odors coming from their attic or crawl space or if a homeowner notices any unusual activity in or around the yard and landscaping that might have been caused by a critter, give us a call. It could also be that a homeowner just wants an inspection by a trained professional to give them peace of mind that their home is secured and animal-free.
