"The guy was nice enough and punctual, but according to him nothing is able to be done since we live in a townhome. Maybe it was too much work? I don't know," but we have rats in the attic now even though he says he saw no entry point. I do believe that the crossover problem is very much real, but something should be able to be done! I mean there are tons of people who live in town homes and row houses. Basically I feel that the company wasn't interested in helping.

"I hired Fur &
(FF) to mitigate a bat infestation in our attic. At the time of their appraisal, I was told that for $1,200 they do" the following: "Bat exclusion and eviction" as well as "Replace ridge vent." They returned the following week to install the exclusion system. That was left in place for approximately two weeks, after which time they returned to remove the system and clean out the attic of any dead bats and fecal matter. The ridge vent was not installed during this window. We were given a five-year warranty beginning 9/08/14. A couple of months later we heard the sounds of bats in the attic again. I called FF and explained that not only did we have bats back, but also that the ridge vent had never been replaced. They promised to come back and address both issues. An employee did come to re-install the bat exclusion net, and I was told someone would return that week to install the ridge vent. I never saw or heard from FF again. Now it has been over 8 months and I have called periodically but no one has called back. We paid for a ridge vent that we never received, and are now paying a general contractor to install one.

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.

Animal Removal reviews in Elgin

They were friendly and efficient. They removed 2 groundhogs, 2 racoons, and 1 possum in 6 days. We were initially interested in removing the groundhogs, and those were caught within the first 2 days. The other 3 animals were caught while we were continuing to monitor for more groundhogs. We could have chosen to have the other animals released back onto our property if we so desired, but didn't. After we felt certain the groundhog problem was taken care of, we asked them to remove the traps/cages on the 7th day and they did. They then invoiced us promptly.

We used the
Elgin Animal Removal Services Provider Name Locked
Control office located in Seal Beach (Orange County).
We first heard the raccoon two months ago and then a few days later heard the squeaking noises of babies. After trying to scare them out with lights, ammonia, and loud music on our own (as we read about online)...we decided we needed professional help....More /> These guys were very tenacious and did not give up. After three different methods of trying to get the raccoon to leave (
Elgin Animal Removal Services Provider Name Locked
cage; pheromone tactics; and finally spraying the crawl spay thoroughly with ammonia) she left. Humanely (which was important to my wife and I).
Elgin Animal Removal Services Provider Name Locked
, the primary technician, was professional, dependable, accessible (we spoke with him many times before, during and after the process) and tenacious.
We really want to recommend
Elgin Animal Removal Services Provider Name Locked
and
Elgin Animal Removal Services Provider Name Locked
especially since we wasted $300 on another Critter Control service in Orange County that basically came by, looked around and set up two cage traps and left...their contract said we could use the traps for three days and after that...see ya. No guarantees.

guaranteed us they would get the raccoon out.

The
Elgin Animal Removal Services Provider Name Locked
revealed a potential access point up the ac raceway that leads to the attic. In the attic he revealed my racoon, or I should say, my phantom racoon. The fact is, what I spotted and took pictures of turned out to be ducting. Releaved, I had a good laugh and ponderred my minds ability to conjur something out of nothing. My conerns were alleviated, the access was covered to prevent intrusion. One extra that

Although he didn't see any pests he concluded it was very likely that we had mice because "almost every house has them". He offered some suggestions about how to prevent pests from entering our house. His services did not include pest removal.

Holes started appearing around our house and property. The depth and number was concerning, so we found
Elgin Animal Removal Services Provider Name Locked
on Angie's List. We called on a Friday evening, and
Elgin Animal Removal Services Provider Name Locked
arrived Saturday morning.
Elgin Animal Removal Services Provider Name Locked
quickly identified the varmint (an armadillo!), explained a recommended course of action, and set up two live-traps over what he called 'active holes.' The armadillo was in a trap Sunday morning!
Elgin Animal Removal Services Provider Name Locked
came within a couple of hours of our call to take the armadillo to a new home and replace the trap. Although all signs of digging stopped immediately, he left the cages in place for two weeks. We did also catch one raccoon who was relocated, too.
I was impressed with
Elgin Animal Removal Services Provider Name Locked
's knowledge, responseiveness, and great customer service. My inquisitive husband asked lots of questions and
Elgin Animal Removal Services Provider Name Locked
seemed happy to share his knowledge. The price was fantastic with no extra charges no matter how many critters he caught. I have already recommended
Elgin Animal Removal Services Provider Name Locked
to a friend and will definitely call him again if more armadillos attempt to move in!

We can't say enough good about this company!
Elgin Animal Removal Services Provider Name Locked
was punctual, professional, polite, knowledgable, dependable, and trustworthy. More than one provider we had called talked down to us. Another company had one-size fits-all prices, sight unseen, depending on the number of stories of the house. We didn't trust that company. Judging by

's responsiveness, and his knowledge about bats, my husband and I thought,"Yeah, this is the guy." What I especially appreciated was how quickly
