"It went great. Set the out traps and returned in 3 weeks and sealed them up and the other areas that they might return. Let me know how much for the removal of the" droppings and how it will be done. Fabulous job and very professional.

-Shelley C.

"The process took several weeks. After the house was sealed, traps were set to
any rodents that may have been sealed in the attic. It took" a couple of weeks to be sure that all of the rodents had been removed. Afterward, baited traps were placed outside the house to
any rats that may be in the area attempting to re-enter the house.
comes by once a month to inspect the traps.

Animal Removal and Wildlife Control

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.

Prevention is key in keeping wild animals at bay, but if an unwelcome critter invades your home, a reputable animal removal professional can help, says Bradshaw. (Photo by Carolyn Seelen)

Animal Removal reviews in Elgin


I have reached out to them a total of 8 times since last week. They charged me for an estimate but will not proceed with wanting to do the work. The secretary was so unprofessional and rude. I just want to proceed with my work at this time. I have not received a call back from anyone in the company. I have waited at my house every time. This is the hardest experience I have had with Angie's List. I want to continue with working with this company because I have invested so much time with them and waiting for them. If the company decides not to do the work, I want my money I paid for the estimate back to me.

performed work on our roof line to exclude the bats, returning several times at dusk to check to see if the bats were exiting from the area he had excluded and to validate that they weren't leaving from other points that he had missed. He also spoke with our roofer about alterations that could be done to our flashing to prevent further entry. We live in a townhome community and after working on our home he realized that our neighbors, who have a fire wall that is adjacent to ours, also had a bat issue in multiple areas of their roof line - he also worked with them to exclude the bats from their property. While I hope to not have a bat problem in the future if I did I would not hesitate to call

again to exclude them.

Although there was no evidence of animal intrusion, the inspector did note that one of the attic vents was not secure. This had come up in the home inspection when I bought the house, so I knew that this was an issue. He said that eventually something (mostly likely birds) would find their way in. I elected to have him install a metal screen on the inside so future problems would be prevented. The inspection was $89 and the screen installation was $50. I was satisfied with the service especially considering getting into my attics is difficult because the entries are through small openings inside closets. I was happy to support SCRAM the Ohio

Center with which they are affiliated.

I had squirrels in my attic.

After moving into our new house, we noticed animal noises between the floors of our house. After doing some research, we decided to get an estimate from A+ Animal Solution. Within 5 minutes of meeting them, we knew they were the service for us.

, our wildlife specialist, was professional, knowledgeable, friendly, and personable. When we told him what time of day we were hearing noises and described them as both big and little, he was able to identify that we had both a rodent (rat) and squirrel problem. He secured the attic and garage to make sure there were no entry/exit points. He then laid rat traps in the both the garage and attic. After a few days, he had caught a rat and promptly came and disposed of it, sanitizing the area and refreshing the house. Re re-baited the trap and didn't catch any more. We also didn't hear any small noises in the wee-hours of the morning.
If anyone who reads this is buying a new house, I would highly encourage an inspection to secure your home so you don't have any problems. I didn't know this was a service that was offered, until now. Had I known, I could have save some $$$.
We did continue to hear larger noises in later in the morning which he identified as squirrel. He inspected the garage and attic again but the entry point eluded all of us. After a week, he did another exterior inspection of the house and noticed that our rolling hurricane panels had a gap that you could see directly into the attic. He was able to put a temporary "patch" to keep the squirrels out. This was successful. When we take the panel down for repair, in a few months, he has offered to come and fix it permanently.
On his final visit, he removed all the rat traps and sanitized the attic and garage one more time and bid us farewell.

came out to our home about twice a week until our problem was solved. He also encouraged us to call/text him if we had issues before his scheduled visit. He was very sensitive to our schedule and was flexible in his visits. He was nice and was happy to share his knowledge of critters. He even gave myself and tween daughter a little wildlife lesson on Armadillos and Raccoons with some trapped animals he had on his truck.
I can't say enough good things about A+ Animal Solutions and would recommend them highly. I hope I never have the need, but considering we live in a wildlife area, I will know who to call when and if the need arises again.

on a Sunday morning, and he arrived a couple of hours later at the agreed upon time. Donned protective gloves to remove the squirrel. Brought a ladder to access our roof. Built a cap and installed it. Inspected our second chimney which was already capped. Noticed some unrelated water damage where two

converged and took pictures to show me. Will definitely call him first if I have another problem.

The owner came to our home and he did an excellent job!!! He was very professional and friendly. It didn't take him long to get the job done. I would recommend him to others.
- Priscilla C.

Ultimately the snake got away, but

gave us some ideas to get rid of the mice using mothballs and double checked the closet next to the garage and around water pipes to make sure that the snake could not get in the house. We appreciate his responsiveness and would not hesitate to call him again.
