Wildlife Control & Prevention

Our team of professionals at ABC Humane Wildlife Control & Prevention has experience in dealing with residential, commercial and municipal nuisance wildlife for over 40 years. Every day, we are contacted by Chicagoland businesses, municipalities, and homeowners to address serious problems caused by the following animals:

We help over 4000 customers a year deal with these animals and a variety of other nuisance animals. Here are some of the other species we provide animal removal service for and our advice regarding each:


Fox Removal & Prevention

Foxes are native to Northern Illinois but are less common than are Coyotes and many other wildlife that we deal with. Because of their typically shy demeanor and crafty nature, foxes can be difficult to catch. ABC wildlife is proud to humanely relocate every healthy fox back into its natural habitat and environment.


Beaver Removal & Prevention

Beavers are native to the area and very common. We have the experience and skills to remove and prevent problems associated with beavers. Generally, most of the clients who retain our services to deal with beavers are commercial and municipal clients. The beaver removal process can be lengthy, usually a minimum of one week of trapping. Beavers frequently cause damage by habitat degradation and flooding. If you have a beaver problem, call the trusted professionals of ABC Humane Wildlife for a free quote.


Coyote Removal & Prevention

Coyotes are native to Northern Illinois and are very common to the area. While coyotes may seem threatening and problematic, they rarely pose a problem to suburban dwellers. Coyotes are typically too intelligent and shy to be easily caught – and so pose a serious problem. It often takes over 200 man hours to catch a coyote, and the cost of doing so typically far outstrips the benefits.  If you see a coyote in your area please remain calm and understand that they are a natural part of the wildlife in northern Illinois.


Muskrat Removal & Prevention

Muskrats are small aquatic mammals that are native to the area and very common. We have the experience and skills to remove and prevent problems associated with muskrats. Generally, most of the clients who retain our services to deal with muskrats are commercial and municipal clients. The muskrat removal process can be very lengthy and frustrating.  Muskrats often cause damage to aquatic plants and their dens can be a fall hazard for landscapers and those near the edge of ponds.  If you have a muskrat problem call the trusted professionals of ABC Humane Wildlife for a free quote.


Rabbit Removal & Prevention

Rabbits are native to Northern Illinois and extremely common. ABC Humane Wildlife is frequently called to deal with rabbit problems of overbreeding and plant destruction. Rabbit can chew through an entire garden in a very short period. If you see a baby rabbit all alone in a field or nearby, do not be alarmed. Mother rabbits commonly leave their young during the day, only to check on them infrequently. The reason is that baby rabbits do not smell like food to predators, whereas the adult rabbit does. So mom is only protecting her youngling by leaving him or her alone.


Flying Squirrel Removal & Prevention

Flying Squirrels are common to some areas of Northern Illinois, commonly in areas with nut bearing trees. Locally, Flying squirrels frequent the north shore area of Chicagoland.  Flying squirrels are often very difficult to remove due to their small size, nocturnal nature, and wariness of change.  For these reasons we always council patience during the flying squirrel removal process.  Trust the experienced professionals of ABC Humane Wildlife to remove any flying squirrels that are in your attic. ABC wildlife is proud to humanely relocate every healthy flying squirrel back into its natural habitat and environment.

If you have any questions about these, or any other animal, please be sure to give us a call. Our professionally trained and highly skilled team members will be happy to answer any questions you have about our animal removal service and your wildlife control problems.

What They Say About ABC Humane Wildlife

I arranged for them to install wire screening on 2 sides of a concrete stoop to prevent animals from digging under my porch. (I have used this company in the past to remove animals from other parts of my property. They suggested this proactive work.) They called to remind me several days before their appointment. They came as promised. They did a great job of preserving landscaping gravel on the side before they dug. After digging down approximately 18 inches, they installed wire mesh screening down the 2 sides of the stoop. They then covered the area with the dirt and final layer of landscaping stones. You couldn’t even tell the area had been excavated when they were done!

We had bees crawling under exterior siding through a gap between siding and brick wall and wanted them eliminated. Phil the technician from ABC arrived at the scheduled time. He observed the bees and identified them as yellow jackets. Phil said he could eradicate them with a powder treatment and the bee activity would die down in a couple of days and we would be finished with the problem. Phil said if we still noticed bee activity after 7 days to call ABC and they would come back to re-treat the nest at no charge. It is just 3 days since Phil treated the nest and we have observed zero bee activity. We are very happy with the service and the remedy to our problem.

One by one, they removed a family of nine flying squirrels from our attic. The attic was completely cleaned and sanitized, and new insulation as blown in. All went well. It was easy to make appointments with ABC Humane Wildlife Control, and they were all very profession and prompt with their service. We dealt with many on their staff while trying to catch all the squirrels, and each of the representatives were friendly and helpful. We had some issues with the condition of some of the traps, but that was eventually resolved. They are a very helpful organization and the staff is very knowledgeable.
