“With bald eagles soaring and looking very much at home here, and a panoramic view of wildlife, you’d hardly know this non stop nature show featuring America’s once endangered national bird, is less than an hour outside of Chicago. “It’s kind of a secret
cove here,” says Jack Sanderson, a suburban eagle watcher. “In all the years we’ve been out here, I’ve never seem ‘em here. Couple eagles nesting, but never 30 of ‘em.” Sanderson has lived in the Northwest suburbs for over 30 years. He discovered this eagle hot spot a few weeks ago. It’s along the Fox River between Cary and Fox River Grove, just a short, snowy walk off busy Route 14. And you don’t have to look too hard to see these American icons in flight.”
“Doug Stotz is a senior ecologist at the Field Museum in Chicago. “We have the second largest wintering eagle population next to Alaska which has both wintering and big breeding populations.” Stotz is among many conservationists who are overjoyed by the eagle population boom.”
“People on the train if they’re watching, they just come across the Fox River from Fox River Grove to Cary. Look out the window and you just might see an eagle soaring with a fish in his mouth.” Experts like the Audubon Society’s Tom Clay, say the wintering eagles should remain perched in this region through the end of March. “Some of them will leave. Some of them will stay. So, if you go out bird watching, there’s never a bad time. But right now is a good time for bald eagles.”
Producer Pam Grimes and Photojournalists Steve Scheuer, Mike D’Angelo, and Ted Parra contributed to this report. WGN – Chicago
Yep it sounds to you there’s a party happening in your home and they’re not including you.
Hearing scratching sounds in the night? Strange noises in the attic or walls? Chances are, you have got a new furry (or feathery) friend living in your home. Many animals move into homes looking for food or shelter and end up getting a little too comfortable. The most common of these noise-causing animals are rodents (rats and mice), bats, birds, raccoons and squirrels.
Have you been hearing something, but thinking it’s the wind? By clicking here, this link will take you to recorded critter sounds. Never heard what a rabbit sounds like? Be surprised, sounds like a crying baby. The difference between what a mouse makes and that of a rat ?
Is it bats? When bats enter homes through small holes, sometimes they get stuck in the walls. Once in the walls, bats make scratching and squeaking sounds, as they tend to become disoriented when trying to get unstuck. Since bats are nocturnal animals, you will most likely hear these animal noises at night when the bats are most active.
But then it could be birds stuck in a wall. When birds enter homes, they are commonly seeking a comfortable place to build their nests. If birds move too far into the home, they can get stuck in attics and walls. When this happens, birds will often make scratching and chirping sounds when trying to get loose. They may also claw at or hit their surroundings with their wings. These bird noises are most often heard homes during the early morning hours when birds are rising for food.
Raccoon’s in attics. These nocturnal animals are notorious for getting stuck in attics and making loud noises in the middle of the night. Raccoon’s will enter attics when looking for shelter and will make a comfy home out of your attic insulation. During the night hours, you may hear raccoon’s running back and forth in the ceiling of your home or scratching at your drywall.
Tree squirrels have a tendency to enter attics and set up permanent residency homes. Homeowners will commonly complain of jumping, scurrying or scratching sounds in the ceiling during the daylight hours. Squirrels will make significant amount of noise when entering and exiting the home in search of food. Critter Control professionals in the area can help keep squirrels from getting into your home by trapping these problem squirrels and sealing off their entry points

A lot of calls coming into our Critter Control offices are about squirrels. Squirrels in the living areas, scratching in the walls, the gnawing, the scurrying, and with spring upon us, new litters of new nuisance.
Don’t let these squirrels take over your home like this one has and hiding nuts everywhere. In some areas of the nation, we can’t even think that spring will be here soon. If there is nuisance wildlife around, don’t enable them to have their spring litters in your home or business.
The most effective method to get rid of squirrels is to trap them. Critter Control will set traps around the building, monitor all entry points, and release the trapped squirrels as they are caught. We check your traps on a daily basis, so you won’t have to notify us when squirrels are in your traps. It is important to us that getting rid of squirrels remains a humane process, so we will never leave squirrels in a trap for longer than necessary. We are trained and know how to get rid of squirrels.
What makes Critter Control different from other animal control companies? Our dedication to your squirrel situation. Not only will we completely get rid of unwanted squirrels from your home, we will also repair squirrel damage in a professional and permanent manner. We don’t just nail a piece of hardwood over a hole and call it good. We will make sure the repair is effective for getting rid of squirrels, while matching the design and structure of your home.
If you find animal droppings somewhere in or around your home, chances are you’ve got a nuisance animal problem and need a professional to remove animal droppings. Most commonly people find rodent droppings in kitchens, animal droppings in garages, animal droppings in attics and rodent droppings in home.
Rodent Droppings in Kitchens
When rats and mice infest homes, they will typically head to the kitchen in search of food and that’s why you often find rodent droppings in kitchens. You may find rodent droppings in your pantry, under your sink or in kitchen cabinets. If rat or mouse droppings are found anywhere near food, it is best to dispose of all nearby food products that may have been contaminated, as rodent droppings in home can lead to animal dropping hazards. The rodent droppings will also need to be removed and the area decontaminated to prevent any health problems from the droppings.
Animal Droppings in Garages
Animal droppings in garages are usually from raccoons, field mice or rats. Just like having rodent droppings in kitchens, animals will enter garages in search of food. You may find raccoon, rat or mice droppings in hidden areas, including corners of the garage, behind insulation, along walls, under shelves or around garbage cans. If you find animal droppings in these or other areas of your garage, call a Critter Control office to assist in eliminating the animal problem. Critter Control will identify the point of entry within the garage, trap the unwanted animals and clean up the droppings.
Animal Droppings in Attics
If you think that animals may have invaded the attic of your home, it is very possible they are making a mess up there and leaving animal droppings. Animals such as birds, bats, raccoons, squirrels and rodents are known to nest in attics, destroying insulation, chewing wires and, most of all, leaving a mess of droppings. You may find droppings excluded to a particular area of the attic, or spread out throughout, depending on the animal. Raccoons, for example, will designate an area to use as a latrine and will nest on the opposite side of the attic. Animal droppings in attics can become overwhelming, especially if the droppings have matted down the insulation, ultimately affecting the heating and cooling of your home.
Animal Dropping Hazards
When animal droppings are present in or around homes, it is important to have an experienced professional assist in cleanup and decontamination. Droppings from different animals can present a host of problems. Raccoon droppings are known to contain parasites, like roundworm. Rodent droppings can contain the Hantavirus if the rats or mice are infected with the disease. Bat and bird droppings can cause Histoplasmosis, a respiratory disease caught by breathing in spores. With these and other hazards, it is best to have a professional implement effective cleanup methods to keep your family safe and prevent health problems.

As squirrels have litters of babies twice a year, once in the spring and once in the fall, they are constantly looking for sheltered areas to build their nests. Squirrels get into the attic by chewing holes from the outside, typically above gutters, or at construction gaps where dormers meet the roof line. They may also gain entry to attics by chewing corners of trim or any other weak area that allows them access into the attic space.
Squirrels will commonly cause damage to attic insulation, or will chew wires in the attic. More significant, however, is the amount of damage they can do to the outside of the attic, on the exterior of the home. As more litters of squirrels are born in or near the home, these squirrels will grow up, leave the nest and search for new areas within the attic to build their own nests. If squirrel populations are not controlled, they will continue to chew holes around the outside of the attic, sometimes in every corner of the house! The longer the squirrels live in an attic, the more entry points they are going to create.
Critter Control of is dedicated to providing customers with professional, permanent home repairs, that not only help control squirrels from entering attics, but also match the design and structure of the hole. We will use materials that match the house and bend it to match the trim so it looks good and keeps the squirrels out of the attic. Our customers generally do not have to contact a carpenter to assist in the repair.
Critter Control also offers insulation repair and installation for damage caused by squirrels in attics. Contact Critter Control to see if insulation repair is available.
If you think you may have squirrels living in your attic, please call the Critter Control office in the area. 1-800-CRITTER.
