"I called
based on reviews here on Angies List. I knew it wasn't going to be cheap, but I wanted the best, and to deal with this problem" only once. They clearly explained to me their unique process for dealing with rodent problems.
was my tech, and couldn't have been more friendly. When you're dealing with someone who comes to your home multiple times, you definitely want someone you feel like you can trust, and
was great. I was surprised when he told me that we had a fairly small problem compared to most he had seen...it sounded like the rats were having a rave in our attic every night. We ended up only trapping 5 animals (the rats were as large as squirrels, though!), and
did careful, diligent work to block any point of entry they might have to come in again...including cleaning up a horrible mess I made on my roof with expanding foam. When he placed a screen in my attic vent turbine to prevent entry that way, the turbine started making a clicking sound when it would spin.
replaced the turbine to prevent that from happening again. Are they expensive? YES! Breathtakingly so. But do you want the best, and only have to deal with your problem once? Or do you want to have people crawling around in your attic setting traps and spraying poison every year? With
, I don't really ever have to worry about it again. If the rats are so determined to chew through my walls again,
's guarantee will cover it. Money well spent, in my opinion!

"He was very good. He explained everything he needed to do that he was gonna bait to keep my cats out of there. I had a raccoon and I had those little black and white" guys. He took out three traps in different times and that was good. It worked out fine and nobody has been back. The price was the going rate. He was fine. He came right away and took care of things.

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.

These guys are great. They're a father and son team that are very responsive and worked outside despite the very cold weather.
The price wasn't the lowest, but they more than make up for it in value of their service and expertise.

Worst service ever.
East Peoria Animal Removal Services Provider Name Locked
came and set up 10 rat traps and said he sealed off ALL places where rats could enter the roof. He quoted $650 for setting traps, sealing off entrances and removal of all dead rats. He charged $790 for this service. And did NOT supply an invoice!He asked my husband to look in the ceiling on the Monday after he set the traps. My husband reported there were 5 dead rats and Mr

replied with "Can't your husband take the rats out of the attic, Im packing to go away and besides, there is a $200 fee if I come and do it!" When called after his week away, I aksed for a copy of the invoice, and he said he already gave it to us. I asked for a copy to be sent and he said he didnt keep copies of invoices!!! This guy is a

We had a family of squirrels who had taken up residence in the attic so I contacted
East Peoria Animal Removal Services Provider Name Locked
as part of the trapping package. As soon as they arrived and deployed the traps, they immediately informed me that the traps would be ineffective against squirrels, and that I would need to purchase a full exclusion package costing in excess of $1000 after Angie's list member discounts. This was outside of my budget and they didn't offer any other options, stating that in order to guarantee their work the full exclusion had to be done and there was no other way to rid our house of the rodents, so no further work was done. They never came back to check on the traps set either, which didn't really matter because as they stated they were completely ineffective. Instead, I put our house cat in the attic and after a day of pouncing sounds up there the squirrels haven't returned, so I saved myself over a grand -- finally that cat is earning her keep!
I'm not sure why they would even bother to come set out traps if they knew there was no
East Peoria Animal Removal Services Provider Name Locked
of catching the squirrels. It seems like I basically paid for an estimate. I could see myself using
East Peoria Animal Removal Services Provider Name Locked
if we had a severe rodent infestation since they were willing to work with me on the price, but the lack of options aside from the expensive full exclusion package means I am going to try everything else before I get to that point.

After hearing scratching type noises coming from the front of our home, we began to research the cause and discovered that several squirrels had made entry into the attic area by creating a hole between the shingled and soffit area areas at the front of the house. Within less than 90 minutes of requesting service, we received an email response followed by a phone call and were able to discuss the problem and our needs. The next day,
East Peoria Animal Removal Services Provider Name Locked
came out to our home and inspected the area in order to provide an estimate to remove the squirrels and to seal up all possible future entry points. Not only did he complete the inspection as promised but remained flexible due to us running over on an appointment and took the time to explain everything in detail. Once we decided to go forward, the process was very
East Peoria Animal Removal Services Provider Name Locked
and convenient. The squirrels were even gone within the first 90 minutes and have not returned and
East Peoria Animal Removal Services Provider Name Locked
worked to accommodate our schedule as needed communicating every step of the way (great customer service). The rest of the project was finished in a very efficient and professional manner and
East Peoria Animal Removal Services Provider Name Locked
even ensured that he used some of the house paint we had left over to ensure a good finished job. We would definitely recommend

I searched for a

removal company and chose
East Peoria Animal Removal Services Provider Name Locked
potluck from the list of providers. I spoke with
East Peoria Animal Removal Services Provider Name Locked
, who is a one man operation. He was able to come to my home within a day to set traps and review the situation. In all,
East Peoria Animal Removal Services Provider Name Locked
came to my home approximately 5 times. We were able to trap 1 raccoon within a day. The second one took more effort, 3 days and use of a different cage to catch. All-in-all it was great dealing with
East Peoria Animal Removal Services Provider Name Locked
. He's easy to talk to, very responsive, and professional. As I will likely have more critter problems given that my lot is wooded, I will use

I would give

the highest possible recommendation. They came out very quickly and are highly skilled, courteous, and very knowledgable. We are very happy with the results. We plan on using them in the spring to help fix an area near our chimney were we think the bats might be entering our attic.

I called about a squirrel in my roof and they were able to come out the same or next day to take a look. They placed traps near the opening in the soffit and caught a pregnant squirrel in just a few days. After a few more days to make sure there was no more animal activity in the same spot, I had them repair the opening in the soffit. I was very pleased with the service and will probably call Critter

We noticed a hole near our back porch gutters and that squirrels were coming and going from it. We contacted
East Peoria Animal Removal Services Provider Name Locked
who responded the same day and said he could come out Saturday (no extra charge even though it was the weekend) and survey the situation. When he inspected the damaged area, he said he should be able to set traps and capture the squirrels and once he was sure he had them all (which would take several days), he would put on a good (not permanent but solid) patch on the hole.
East Peoria Animal Removal Services Provider Name Locked
took lots of time to explain the entire process, including how his license enabled him to capture and release the squirrels which he did in a rural area south of the Cities. He told us he would set three traps that day on the roof and would come back each day around noon to check if any squirrels had been captured. After a few days, assuming he had caught some squirrels, he would put some wadded up newspaper in the hole to see if any squirrel traffic was still occurring. Once he was confident that all the squirrels who had nested in our roof were either captured or had fled, he would seal the hole.
East Peoria Animal Removal Services Provider Name Locked
trapped 3 squirrels each of the first 2 days, then 2, then 1. The first time he stuffed newspaper in the hole, it was disturbed, but the second time, it was left alone, and he knew the nest was empty. All in all, it took about a week. Each day,
East Peoria Animal Removal Services Provider Name Locked
was so quiet and professional that we never even knew when he had come come and emptied the traps and set new ones. Even our dog,
East Peoria Animal Removal Services Provider Name Locked
, didn't know he was out there!
We were struck by
East Peoria Animal Removal Services Provider Name Locked
's warmth and friendliness, his professionalism, and his obvious skill at doing his job. He took all the time necessary to answer any questions we had. Given how much time and effort he put into the job (and the "temporary" patch he put on the roof hole was VERY well done...I was expecting something make-shift and it looks quite solid, in fact), he was/is a bargain. We also like how he trapped and released the squirrels. We would highly recommend him to anyone with a similar problem. We can see why he has earned such high ratings on Angies List, as he deserves all the praise that has been written about him.
