Pigeon Control for Municipalities in Illinois

Pigeons living in bridges, signs, parking garages, warehouses, and commercial buildings pose a nuisance and a health hazard. Our team expertly controls pigeon colonies in Illinois by humanely solving pigeon problems.

When people walk under bridges and overpasses, pigeon droppings pose a risk to their health. Pigeon droppings transmit the fungal lung disease Histoplasmosis, and in addition to being dangerous, they are a smelly and unsightly nuisance. We remove pigeon colonies by installing humane bird deterrent systems that get rid of pigeons and keep them from coming back.

Excellent Service from Beginning to End

“I was extremely pleased with ABC Wildlife service from the beginning to the end. Their staff is amazing! The service guys that came out to my home were knowledgeable and polite. They caught seven raccoons over a period of time that were living in the eaves of my home. Excellent Service. Thank you so much!”

Bat Emergencies

Bats are Illinois’ most common rabies carrier, and a rabid bat can transmit rabies to a sleeping person without the person knowing they were bitten. When a bat is flying around inside your home or bedroom, call the ABC Wildlife Hotline at 847-870-7175, and we will dispatch our team to your home immediately to:

  • Search for the bat and capture it in a net
  • Send it for rabies testing when needed
  • Inspect for a bat colony
  • Humanely remove the bat colony without harming the bats
  • Provide bat colony remediation and clean up any waste or contamination bats leave behind
  • Seal holes through which bats can enter and prevent them from returning
