Des Plaines wildlife control Tip of the Month:

Nobody likes to have wild animals running up and down their chimney. Apart from their noise disturbance, the presence of these critters makes it impossible to use the fireplace. Also, extracting them from the chimney can be such a tough task. If you notice that there’s a wild animal in your chimney, make sure you do all you can to remove it immediately. Wild animals are carriers of deadly diseases and may infect you and your household. Most of these animals carry bacteria, parasites, and viruses that can easily be transferred to humans who come in contact with their feces and urine.

Evicting wild animals from the chimney is usually difficult because of the way the fireplace is built. You can’t reach for the animals because it can be floors from the top of your chimney to the bottom. This is why most homeowners resort to using animal control measures like repellents. Today, different kinds of repellents are available on the market, and the companies that make them claim they’re effective. But is this true? Can repellents get a wild animal out of the chimney? Well, the truth is, when it comes to removing wild animals, repellents are not really potent. Maybe that was not the answer you were expecting, but it’s a simple truth – repellents are not as efficient as their manufacturers paint them to be. They only give maximum results when combined with other wildlife control methods.

Nonetheless, repellents are not totally useless – they can force wild animals to exit your home. As irritants, they’ll annoy wild animals and make them leave. The only issue with using repellents is that they have a pungent smell and are made with poisonous and irritating substances. Since you’ll be placing them in your chimney, the fumes can enter your home and cause health problems for you and your family. It’s totally up to you to decide what kind of wildlife control method you want to use. However, you also need to consider the negative aspect of each method. It’s advisable to choose a technique that will do the job effectively without harming you or your loved ones.

It is also important to consider why the animal is in the chimney. If it’s there to nest and breed, then it can be chased away. However, if the animal mistakenly got into the chimney and can’t find its way out, you need to help it exit the place. Another thing you should consider is the type of repellent to be used. There are only two species of animals that love to live in chimneys – raccoons and bats. In most states, bats are a protected species. So, trying to remove them could be considered an illegal act. Remember, bats are migratory animals. So, you don’t need to stress over them – just wait till they exit the chimney then you can cover it up tightly with a cap. The chimney cap should be fixed by an expert and have holes smaller than a half-inch to keep bats from re-entering. If it’s a brick chimney, examine the mortar carefully and cover any holes you find. It’s not really advisable to use repellents on raccoons and bats because the animals could get agitated and bite you or a member of your family. Don’t forget, both of these animals are carriers of rabies

Pregnant squirrels also nest in chimneys. However, they only nest in chimneys that they can easily climb out of. If a squirrel accidentally falls into a chimney, it will make a lot of noise and try to exit the place. In this case, just send a rope down the chimney and let them climb out with it.
