Animal Control can answer questions and provide assistance detering nuisance wildlife such as birds, skunks, squirrels, raccoons and opossums. If removing wildlife is necessary because of property damage, residents may consider leasing a trap from the Village. A short application must be completed, a check or cash deposit provided and the trap picked up at Village Hall, 123 Madison St. The number of available traps is limited, so property owners are urged to call 708.358.5680 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire about trap availability.
Detailed information on preventing and solving wildlife problems or hiring a nuisance wildlife control operator is posted on the University of Illinois Extension's Living with Wildlife in Illinois website - just click here.
