"The technician completed the job in 1 day. He set the trap and came out the next day to collect the rodent. He arrived on time did what I had asked. I had no problem" scheduling the service. He takes care of most
removal when I could not find any other company to do the job.

"I have used
in the past very successfully. Once to retrieve a dead rodent under the front stairs outside of my house and once to remove a" bird from my chimney. Both times were prompt responses and reasonably priced. I called on 11/17 to discuss some rat activity outside of my house. I wanted to have some vent guards and flower bed guards and things done to
the rats away from the house before they broke through to the house. They came out 11/19 to survey the area.
the man who came to do my estimate was very thorough and explained everything to me. He said he'd have a formal estimate to me by the end of the day or early the next morning and that the work wouldn't be done before Thanksgiving but it would before Christmas. After not receiving a response I emailed him 11/21. And 11/28. No response. Not even an "I'll get back to you soon". I also called the office on 11/24, 12/2, and 12/3. Each time they just told
to email me and each time he told them he did. On 12/3 when I called I said "Hey do you want my business or do you want me to just give you a bad Angie's List review and call someone else". That's when they transferred my call to
and he swore up and down that he'd sent the estimate already and that I should check my spam folder, which I already had many times. He then emailed it to me twice. The estimate was for $3,000. I called someone else who did all the same things about a week after I called him to the tune of only $500. I don't write this to complain but rather point out to them what's going on with their business. They have been a dependable and responsive business to me and my neighbors in the past. There are multiple reviews similar to this one that have been recently written. Its sad to see their decline.

Animal removal

Animals are opportunists. Once they get access to an attic, they make themselves at home. Getting them to move out, and stay out, may require the services of an animal removal professional.

Our house was under contract to sell when they bad animal issue came up. It went very smoothly. From helping us secure the insurance claims, he was able to start 2 days later.

Oh my goodness. After just 3 weeks the improvement was outstanding. I haven't seen a mouse in a few days now. We had a really bad mouse problem since they dug up the sewer in front of our house in the summer. But now, I can get some sleep.

we've used this company in the past and would use them again. However, I gave a B for responsiveness (not knowing which category to use) because "rodent" in the rodent exclusion service is rather misleading. It means mice only, so just be aware of that in case you have rats or squirrels in the mix. Also, over the phone they agreed to do spider prevention which was included in the coupon, but they didn't do it on either the first visit or the follow-up. I also forgot to remind them so it's partly my fault. They distributed mouse baits around the house and were kind enough to plug up a hole in our enclosed porch addition where rats had come in (but fortunately not nested) over the winter. On the follow up visit they checked all the baits and found no mouse activity, and went around the exterior of the house to check for holes and seal them. Very professional and punctual.

The exterminator arrived and within minutes analyzed the problem. He told me where the flies were coming from, that the cause was a dead rodent under my floorboards (he even told the approximate size of it), and showed me how the flies were entering my apartment. He then set out non-toxic traps, while explaining to me about the nature of the carcass flies, how they develop, their behavior, their lifespan. As he predicted, the flies were all gone after two days. I highly recommend this service and I appreciate their professionalism and knowledge.

This is the second time we have used

(different problem) and both times he has fixed the problem without hassle. He is incredibly conscientious and shows up daily to check his traps and make sure the job is done correctly. He is easy to get a hold of on his cell phone and returns messages promptly.
If you have need of this unique service ( wild animals in places you don't want them) then

We suspected that there was a dead animal under our deck.
Chicago Animal Removal Services Provider Name Locked
had helped us solve our mouse problem two years ago so they were the first company we called. Thankfully they handle dead animals as well.
I called on a Wednesday and we set up an appointment for the next day. The window of time which they gave me was a bit problematic as is fell around the time I had to pick up my kids from their grandparents house. I informed the phone rep as well as the worker assigned to the job of this. Since the work was outside anyway, they said it would not be a problem if I was not there.
Sure enough they came out when I was gone picking up my kids. The worker (sorry I forgot his name) called me as I was turning onto my in-law's street, informing me that he was at our house, that he located the animal (poor squirrel), and that he would have to dismantle part of the deck to get to it. I gave him the go ahead.
I arrived back home 30 minutes after the phone call to find the job was done, cleaned up, and the worker was gone. The only sign that he was there (besides the absence of the dead squirrel) was a work receipt on our door.
I was surprised it he worked so fast and very happy with the results. While our hope is to never to have to hire them again, we are glad

is around in the event that we have to hire them again. Thanks for running a top notch business!

This is one of those deals where differing expectations derail the process and make me leery of buying any in the future. The man was pleasant enough at the beginning, but, as I explained our long history with squirrels entering our home, he became quite abrasive and even seemed angry as he informed me of how the rules have changed and we could go to jail! All I wanted was what what was advertised - a home inspection to see where they were getting in. But his agenda was different - he said: What good is it for us to come out there if we don't set traps?! I believe that was at $90 a trap. And we have our own. And we don't want to euthanize all our squirrels! So they got my money and I received no service. So, it basically seems that we pay some of these companies to let them in so they can charge us a lot more money for other services. Not always a good deal.

The initial guy that came out to do the estimate and see if there were squirrels living in the gutter opening was very professional and courteous. He even told me a way I could save some money for the initial assessment. He gave me clear instructions of what to do when a squirrel was caught and how to respond. I just think they could have been more efficient in laying out more than one trap versus one trap at a time, especially if you know that on average we'd be catching 5-6 squirrels. It was hard having to deal with this for about a week. Sometimes the technician would come for the trapped squirrel and then we'd call 2 hours later stating there's another one in the trap having to wait a whole day for it to be picked up.
When a squirrel was caught, I or my tenant would call them. We often got the answering service, but someone would call me the next morning with an estimation time. They did come during the time, but sometimes the technician wouldn't tell me they were outside removing and replacing a new trap. Once I waited three hours only to find out that the technician came and went. I really would have liked a phone call after each visit just to keep me informed. The lady answering calls during business hours was always very friendly and apologetic.
Overall it was good, and I might use them again. Hopefully we won't have to ;)
