Pest Control for Municipalities

Regardless of where you live in Chicagoland or Northern Illinois, you’re bound to encounter pests and nuisance wildlife. It’s a problem common to homeowners, businesses, and even municipalities. While people are aware of the problems insects and rodents can cause to their yards and homes, they rarely consider that community buildings such as police stations, schools, and libraries face similar issues.

Invasive animals and pests pose a unique complication for townships and cities. Public buildings often see hundreds – if not thousands – of people every single day, and the more people there are, the more likely it is that pests will get inside. Insects like bed bugs and fleas latch onto their host’s hair, clothing, and accessories to travel with them from place to place. They will then harbor in furniture where they can find a new host, spreading from person to person throughout the building. What begins as a small problem can lead to an epidemic.

Municipal buildings like schools and village halls that feature cafeterias or food courts are also at risk for pest problems. Places where large amounts of food are being prepared are prime real estate for cockroaches, ants, and rodents. The availability of nourishment makes these areas very attractive, and it is not at all uncommon for a kitchen or dining area to be plagued with pests. Insects, mice, and rats carry diseases like salmonellosis and leptospirosis, and if they are getting into the food supply, they are able to transit these illnesses to anyone eating that food.

Pests and nuisance wildlife create a hazardous environment for students, municipal employees, and the public in general. If your municipal building is experiencing an insect, rodent, or wildlife problem, ABC Wildlife can offer you effective solutions.

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.

The first step in “de-skunking” your pet is to rinse him/her off with a hose bath and pet shampoo outside. After that, bring him/her indoors for a warm bath with dish soap. Get our "de-skunk" recipe!
