We suspected that there was a dead animal under our deck.
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 ;)

Our attic is not accessible from the inside, so they had to build scaffolding from the outside, set traps on the scaffold and seal up the access hole the squirrels were using. The work was done well; but $2800 for removing a couple of squirrels seemed excessive (even with the added costs of erecting the scaffolding). But they were the only company out of 4 requests that was even willing to tackle the job

was excellent and very easy to work with. His price was very fair, he was always on time, and was able to remove our squirrels and seal up the entry point in less than week.

We have been having squirrel problems for a few years in our front soffit and we began hearing them vigorously chewing on two-by-fours every night. We had finally had enough one night when the chewing became so loud I couldn't sleep! I called some other companies and they refused to do any additional work to seal up the house unless we also hired them to trap the squirrels. We have been through this before and it is a complete waste of time. I can trap the squirrels myself for free. These companies want $125 every time they trap a squirrel....what a ripoff. So.....After trapping approximately 10 squirrels myself and handing them over to a licensed "squirrel lady" over a period of about 6 weeks, we finally felt ready to seal everything up. I called

and
Chicago Animal Removal Services Provider Name Locked
was VERY professional and came out right away and I could tell he knew what he was talking about. He told me he would seal everything up with steel (painted white to match our trim) and then just to make sure there were no squirrels trapped inside, he would put a one way excluder up for a few days. NO ONE ever suggested this before and believe me, we have talked with plenty of other companies over the past few years. By the way, we even had a siding company come out (

, I believe. After they did the initial seal up and put up the excluder, they said they would be back in about 4 days to remove the excluder and button everything up. In the meantime, my husband noticed some things he didn't like about the way they used too many sections for the front of our house (it looks noticeable when there are too many cuts used). Anyway, I called

, he came out and he agreed with me right away and worked with us to come up with a great solution to make it look great. He ended up re-covering of the front with fewer sections and made sure it was all great looking.

After a bad experience with ABC
Chicago Animal Removal Services Provider Name Locked
, I contacted
Chicago Animal Removal Services Provider Name Locked
and he came out quickly and assessed the situation and gave me a flat rate price. He set the traps OVER the hole and caught 5-6 squirrels and was responsive about coming back to get the trapped animals. When it was all over, he put a metal plate over the hole and I have had no problems since. The other provider trapped all the squirrels in the neighborhood. The trap needs to be placed OVER the hole so they are caught coming in and out --not just passing over your roof. would definitely use again.

If you want to feed all the squirrels in the neighborhood and pay to have this company come pick them up, this is your provider I had a squirrel problem, so I called. The gentleman who came out to inspect was very nice but said there were no squirrels and no sign of entry. I had him check again because I knew he was wrong. He found the rather large hole and set a trap on the roof. They then proceeded to capture about squirrel a day for several days. I got tired of feeding all the squirrels in the neighborhood and being charged 90 dollars to have each squirrel picked up (what a scam) so I told them to come get their trap. I then hired

who put the trap over the hole and caught 5-6 squirrels entering or leaving the house and charged me a flat fee. Both providers killed the squirrels which did not bother me since they did thousands of dollars worth of damage but I think
