Of the many species of wildlife that can be a nuisance to Illinois area homeowners, none can cause problems quite like a skunk. Skunks are small mammals that often take up residence around homes by burrowing under decks and porches and they have a habit of digging up yards in search of insects for food. They also spray a foul odor to mark their territory or to protect themselves when they feel threatened by people or other animals and pets. Removing a skunk can be tricky to do without getting sprayed and it is usually best if handled by wildlife control experts who specialize in live trapping. However, homeowners should be aware of how to prevent skunk invasions and what to do if an invasion should occur.
Groundhog Extermination in Illinois
There are many ways to do away with groundhogs. All gardeners have their own preferred method. Some want to do away with them humanely without resorting to killing them. Others just want them gone efficiently and quickly. After you get rid of the groundhog, it is necessary that you watch out for a reappearance of a groundhog population.
If it does not bother you using chemicals in your mission to do away with the groundhog, a relative humane way to do so is by using ammonia. It is a quick-acting way to get a groundhog to move away. It may sound brutal and inhumane but if you handle it correctly, the groundhog inhabitants will move away without having to kill them. The way it works is by causing their burrows to be distasteful to them. With a distasteful burrow, they will journey on their own to another area of land away from the garden.

Snake Removal Illinois
The rat snake is another type of snake that can be out during the dusk until nightfall. The milk snakes are normally active during summer nights. This snake will go out after other snakes have gone back into their dens. Certain snakes and other rodents do not like to go out during well lit nights since it may expose them to predators. Snakes will tend to go out during cloudy nights. The clouds will cover them and it will insulate the ground and make it warmer. The clouds will filter out the moonlight and they are associated with more barometric pressure and humidity, which are good for snake activities.
Humidity and temperature play a key role in whether snakes decide to go out or not. During the nights when the sky looks clear and the temperature is down, then the snakes will not be too active. The snakes will also go out during high humidity levels. During the summer nights, the snakes will also like to be near wetlands.

After all, you may never come face to face with these furtive, furry foes.
