One of the most common of bats located in, near, and around Muncie, Indiana.

General Gutter Maintenance can Prevent Animal Entry

This latest post on the American Animal Control Facebook page serves to illustrate the importance of basic, general maintenance on homes and businesses.

In South Bend, Indiana & all over the rest of our animal control service areas our team of wildlife control professionals performs some basic maintenance like rain gutter inspections & cleaning. When rain gutter maintenance is neglected, things like clogs in downspouts can cause major damage. The weight of full gutters can rip them from the fascia, leaving bare wood exposed to the elements. Also, overflow of rain water will rot roofs under drip edges and fascia boards.

Call Us Now to schedule rain gutter maintenance, inspection and cleaning services.

If you are unable to perform gutter maintenance for yourself due to physical restraints, you’re afraid of heights, or you simply don’t want to do it, that is when American Animal Control is there to get the gutters clean and repair any damages that have occurred BEFORE any animals gain entry into your home.

Neglecting this basic gutter maintenance can result in costly remediation for all sorts of animals in the attic:

Opossum trapping and removal in Brookston

Opossum Trapping & Removal in Brookston, Indiana – Our client had raccoons so they got a cage and tried to catch it themselves, but as you can tell this is not a raccoon it’s a opossum. They decided to call the professionals here at American Animal Control to get the animals out and keep them out.

Self-trapping opossums and other wild animals is possible, although doing so will not solve all of the problems posed.  In the case of this client, they set a trap in hopes of catching a raccoon that was causing issues, but, due to some inexperience, they caught a non-target animal.  What do you do with an animal once you catch it?  Most counties don’t allow you to relocate an animal without a permit.

Opossum trapping and removal is best left to the professionals.

Our trained wildlife removal professionals at American Animal Control, LLC have the experience to diagnose the problem, set traps to catch the target animal(s) and prevent future animal problems.

Usually a wild animal needs trapping because it is causing damage to property.  We always trap the target animals, in this case a opossum, and then fix the animal damage while simultaneously preventing future occurrences.

Birds in the attic! Bird Removal in Fort Wayne, Indiana

This client has birds in the attic.  They have had for some time.  When birds get into the attic and nest as they’ve done here it can be a problem for the integrity of the house.  Birds in the attic are also very noisy and disrupt everyday life for people all the time.

Don’t let birds in the attic stay there.  Call AAC today!

Your main goal as a customer may be to get the birds in the attic out as soon as possible, but our goal is to make it so they can’t get back in, ever.  When we were doing this bird removal and bird waste clean-up in Fort Wayne last week, we made it so no birds (or any animals for that matter) can enter the attic anymore.  We then proceeded with the removal of many large garbage bags worth of nest and bird poop materials.

This time the birds in the attic hadn’t been there so long as to require a total attic insulation removal and remediation, but it could happen.

When any animal is in the attic, we strongly suggest giving American Animal Control a call as soon as possible to avoid the following issues:

  • Very costly repairs
  • Getting sick due to animal contamination
  • Structural damage to the home
  • Bad smells coming from the attic
  • Noises in the attic disrupting daily life
  • Roof damage, leading to water damage in the home

Birds in the attic may not be on your radar, so as a home-owner be diligent in checking your attic a few times per year to keep abreast of the situation in the attic.  If you’re unable to check your own attic, call American Animal Control a call now to schedule a time for us to come out and do an attic inspection for you.  A small fee now for inspection services could prevent major problems from occurring later.

This Marshall, IL homeowner called us about removing bats in the attic.  When our Technicians at American Animal Control get a call about bats in the attic, we do an inspection of the property starting with a visual exterior inspection, and will also address any interior locations common to animal entry.  In this case we knew there were bats in this Marshall, IL attic.  Upon inspection of the attic, we confirmed that bats had been in the attic for some time.  The entry points near the roof line of the home had been neglected for a long time.  This attic is completely saturated with dangerous bat guano.

Our team of expert animal removal technicians have removed the damaged siding on this home where it was determined bats were entering the walls and ultimately, the attic.  We have some cleanup to do! The piles of material you see are not piles of insulation, but are guano.  There have been bats in the attic for some time in this home.  The contamination from bat guano in the attic and the walls should not be ignored.  Homeowners could get Histoplasmosis from exposure to this dangerous contamination.

Histoplasmosis: infection by a fungus found in the droppings of birds and bats in humid areas. It is not serious if confined to the lungs but can be fatal if spread throughout the body.

Don’t leave your family in danger.  When it comes to bats in the attic, be diligent to get the problem solved sooner than later.  Not only will the job be easier for us, but it will save you money and health.

Michigan City Raccoon Removal Service

Michigan City Raccoon Removal Service baby raccoons

Michigan City Raccoon Removal Service

The Wildlife Removal and Animal Control Specialists at ®American Animal Control, LLC of Michigan City received a call from a customer with raccoons in the chimney. The clients complained they were hearing noises in the fireplace and saw a raccoon climb on the roof and go down their chimney.

When our animal control and raccoon removal professionals arrived at the scene we got right to work moving furniture around so we could obtain access to the fireplace easily. When most of our customers have a raccoon in the chimney this time of year there is a very good chance for a litter of raccoons in the chimney with a female raccoon. Great caution must be taken when trying to remove a female raccoon in a chimney from her young. As we very carefully opened the fireplace damper to look for the raccoon, no raccoon or baby raccoons were found.

We remove animals from chimneys.

This Michigan City homeowner insisted that they had watched a raccoon go down the chimney. We then moved outside in the pouring rain to setup our ladders to navigate the roof line up to the chimney flues. There were three different chimneys on the home. Two of then had chimney caps installed that prevented any raccoons or other animals from getting down the chimney. Using a high powered flashlight we could see that indeed there was a large female raccoon with her young at the bottom of the chimney. We also notice that the furnace and the hot water heater were tied into the chimney flue down below. The female raccoon was down below the exhaust of the furnace and water heater.

Trying to remove a raccoon in the chimney can sometimes be very difficult especially when there is no access from down below. This particular chimney was one of those. All raccoons had to come out from the top, in the pouring rain. Then problem was twofold: the gas exhaust from the furnace was blowing right in our faces as we were trying to look down and remove raccoons from the chimney. The second problem was there was a additional chamber off to the side of the chimney that allowed the adult female to hide and avoid being caught with the catch pole. We were able to quickly remove 5 babies with our special grabbing tool. We then had to move to plan B, barricade a trap over the top of the chimney. This prevents any other raccoons from entering. The first time the mother raccoon goes out she will be captured in the trap. We try to avoid multiple trips to the property and like to solve the raccoon problem on the initial visit, but that doesn’t always happen.

The very next morning our Michigan City customer called with great excitement to let us know the raccoon that was in the chimney was now in the trap. Another happy customer from the Michigan City area! All this could have been easily prevented with the installation of a chimney cap.

Ground Hog Removal Service in Rochester, Indiana.

We remove many ground hogs under decks and sheds. Some other common animal control occurrences are raccoons in eaves, soffits, and attics, and also Bats in the Attic in Rochester. Pest Removal and Control in Rochester is much more than just spraying chemicals for insects or bugs. Our Rochester Wildlife Removal Specialists provide animal removal and animal control for all types of wildlife problems. Rochester is full of “critters”.

Ground Hog Removal Service in Rochester, Indiana.

Rochester-Indiana-Groundhog-Control-and-removalGroundhogs are getting close now to giving birth to their young. Typically 3-4 groundhog pups are in each litter. Groundhogs are ground burrowing animals that hibernate in the winter months. Once the winter frost has left the ground our Rochester area customers begin to see ground hogs emerge from their dens.

This Rochester customer spotted a groundhog going under their shed. Our fully licensed ground hog removal professional set a trap over the entrance point. The way our custom trap works is such that the first time the ground hog goes for food and water we will capture it. Sometimes this time of year with unstable temperatures ground hogs will “lay up” for days or weeks until the temperature is suitable for them.

Ground hogs have hair, and do not have fur like other animals in the Rochester area. Raccoons, skunks, and opossums all have fur with a thick leather hide to keep them warm.

This particular trap was set up for almost 14 days until the ground hog decided to move. But the first time it moved, we got it. Once all the groundhogs are removed from under a deck or shed it is very important to install a pest guard shed and deck barrier to prevent groundhogs or any other animals from burrowing under the structure.

If you need ground hog removal service in Rochester Indiana or are having problems with other nuisance animals, give the Wildlife Removal Professionals at ®American Animal Control, LLC. a call 877-264-3638 now!

Ground Hog Removal in Ossian, Indiana

Ossian Animal Control and Removal Service – Ground Hog Removal.

groundhog-woodchuck removal service ossian indianaSpring is coming fast and many animal calls are coming in. Bats in the attic, raccoons in chimneys, and skunks under the foundation.

We just had a customer living in Ossian, Indiana call with a Ground Hog in her basement. She just arrived home and heard noises coming from her basement. When she opened the basement door she was very surprised to see a groundhog causing havoc in the basement.

Ground hogs, sometimes called woodchucks are ground borrowing animals  and many times will burrow under decks, sheds, and foundations. Groundhogs do not have fur like many other animals in Indiana. They must hibernate for the winter in order not to freeze. When temperatures rise, groundhogs begin to wake up and move around looking for food and water. Soon they will begin to breed and can give birth to 3-6 young.

This Ossian ground hog decided it would dig into the part of the house that used to be a porch. This porch has a 6 inch crawlspace under it. The ground hog burrowed under the front steps and entered the basement through a ground level window that was unlocked underneath the porch.

®American Animal Control, LLC wildlife removal specialists set up a trap over the entry point and were able to trap and remove the nuisance ground hog before it was able to do more damage to the home. Groundhogs or woodchucks many times will enter under a deck to gain access through a foundation vent or burrow along side the basement or crawlspace . Many times our wildlife professionals will install deck and shed barriers to prevent animals from digging.

If you live in or near Ossian, Indiana, and are having animal problems with groundhogs, raccoons, skunks, opossums, or even bats, call Ossian’s most recommended wildlife removal specialists. 574-518-4840 direct cell #.

Best way to remove raccoons from attic

best-way-to-remove-raccoons-from-atticMany homeowners are beginning to hear noises in the attic. This is the time of year when most raccoons are finishing up with their breeding cycle.

Typically raccoons will breed in late November and into the end of January.

We receive calls from homeowners that believe they have two animals in the attic fighting. Sometimes during the breeding cycle raccoons will make a lot of noises in the attic thus keeping homeowners awake at night.

After breeding season is complete the female raccoon will run the male raccoon off. She will then begin to prepare her nest for the spring birthing time. Once a raccoon decides to take up residence in the attic of a home she will tear up insulation, rip open HVAC ducts, and urinate and leave feces all over the attic. This can lead to a lot of problem for homeowners.

Raccoons cost homeowners across the United States millions a year in animal damage and repairs.


Raccoons give birth in the spring, typically starting as early as March and going into June. An averaging of 4-6 coons per litter, those young may sometimes begin to breed within the first year of their life.

®American Animal Control, LLC wildlife removal professionals remove raccoons in attics, soffits, chimneys, in crawlspaces, basements, and under decks and sheds. We have even removed litters of raccoons inside boats.

When the female raccoon decides its time to give birth she will tear into anything in just a short period of time to find a safe place to hide her young.

We recently had a call from a homeowner that said their next door neighbor saw two raccoons breeding on the roof at 6:30 a.m. Raccoons in the chimney – After breeding the two raccoons went down the chimney. Many homeowners do not have chimney caps to prevent raccoons or other animals from using the chimney as a den location. Raccoons will often times prepare more than one den location site for giving birth. We have had homeowners tell us they have seen the female raccoon come out of their chimney go across the roof and climb down the side of the house, up the the down spout of the neighbors house, and down their chimney. All while carrying a one of her baby raccoons in her mouth. If the female raccoon feels threatened or that her young may in danger she will move them. Many times the male raccoon will return and try to kill the young. The female will fight to her death to defend her young. We have found dead male raccoons in attics killed by the female raccoon defending her young.

How do you know you have a raccoon in your attic?

Signs of raccoon entry and how to get them outRaccoons make different sounds when moving around, breeding, and giving birth. Different types of chattering noises can be heard from baby raccoons. Knowing for sure what kind of animal you have in the attic may sometimes only be determined by a thorough inspection by a professional. Basic signs of raccoons like: muddy foot prints on siding, down spouts, outside corners, soffits ripped out, roof vents destroyed, or even large holes in the roof are common. It is obvious when you actually see the raccoon.  Other times it can be very difficult locating the main entrance point, especially if the raccoons just got in and have not used the entry point enough to leave much of a sign.

When our team of wildlife removal professionals arrive at a “crime scene” our # 1 priority is to get the raccoon out of the house as quickly as possible to minimize animal damage to the home.

Many times locating the raccoon and removing it on the initial visit is not possible. Raccoons can hide down wall cavities, in soffits, and other places in a attic that can’t be accessed without doing significant damage to a home’s structure to locate and remove. When this occurs the best method to remove the problem raccoon from the attic is to setup traps and to remove it.

There are several ways to professionally trap raccoons in the attic.

pest-and-raccoon-removal-from-attic-michigan-cityBaited traps in the attic, outside the house, and barricaded traps at the entrance points. Depending on what time of year it is can really determine the best method of raccoon removal.

When baby raccoons are present it’s best not to enter the attic. A female raccoon may become very aggressive and may consider it a threat. Other times you may spook the raccoon with different scents on trap may actually cause the female to move her young to another location that is much harder to achieve access to. An open baited trap on the ground or roof may yield a raccoon or two, but it may not necessarily be the raccoon in your attic. By placing lure or baited traps outside the home, the possibility of luring in other animals in the neighborhood to your home is very likely. The best and sometimes the most difficult way to trap and remove a raccoon in the attic is to locate the main and any secondary points of entry, and barricade or nose cone a special trap right into the entry holes. This method eliminates all possibility of luring in “non-target” animals, and ensures the first time the raccoon goes for food and water it will be captured.

Once the raccoons have been trapped and removed from the attic it is very important to properly repair and secure the entrance point to prevent a re-occurrence of raccoons getting back in. Another key factor in prevention that is often overlooked is the removal of contaminated attic insulation and raccoon feces in the attic.

This is very important for two reasons:

  1. Health concerns. Raccoon feces can have roundworms and the spores can become airborne entering open or ripped HVAC ducts circulating through the entire home. Even just the mold spores or urine saturated insulation can become a problem for homeowners.
  2. Like a dog and a fire hydrant, other neighborhood raccoons can smell through soffit vents or roof vents the scent of other raccoons. This many times can encourage passing by raccoons to explore or rip open another entrance on the home.

There are many concerns to consider when a raccoon has entered into a home. Always contact a wildlife removal professional when you think you have raccoons in your attic.

Mishawaka Bat Removal Service

mishawaka bat removal service

Mishawaka Bat Removal Service

Winter time bat movement is becoming more and more of a problem for Mishawaka homeowners. For years most people have heard “bats fly south to the caves for the winter.” Although this is true, the fact is that not ALL bats fly south to the caves for the winter.

®American Animal Control, LLC wildlife removal and bat exclusion specialists have removed thousands of bats from homes over the years. We remove all bats: from bats in the attic, bats flying in the house, bats in the basement, and large bat colonies in commercial buildings, schools, and churches.

Most bats will enter a home up on the roof line in some sort of construction gap or opening. Bats don’t need a gap bigger than the size of your thumb nail to enter, and they will come and go many times for years unnoticed. Years ago many homes did not have much insulation in the attics and winter time temperatures would not allow bats to stay in the attics without freezing. Some attic bats that “winter over” will get down under the insulation or even in the wall cavities to maintain a critical body temperature to stay alive.

click-to-call-animal-control for Mishawaka Bat RemovalWinter has its warmer days and cooler days, so bats will sometimes move around a little. Bats will travel up and down walls and even end up in a basement or a utility room of a home. Many homeowners will find slightly disorientated bats lying on the floor, clinging to a chimney or curtain, and even may find a bat in the bathtub.

Although bats will not normally leave the attic and go outside in extremely cold weather, bats can be found outside in the winter months. Our Mishawaka bat removal professionals have even found large bat colonies in un-insulated barns alive and well in the dead of winter. Many “bat experts” will say that this just doesn’t happen, but the bat removal professionals at ®American Animal Control, LLC work daily year around solving property owner’s bat problems.

Bats in the attic that go unnoticed for long periods of time can also present some health concerns with the amount of guano in the attic and on the attic insulation. Our attic restoration and clean-out service is for those people.

If you have ever found a bat in your house, you may have a bat problem. Very rarely do we get calls from homeowners that find a bat in the house, is it just one. Bats typically give birth to only one bat per year. But bats build colonies in attics of home quite frequently. Our licensed bat specialists will inspect your home from top to bottom inside and out for signs of bats, bat entry points, and bat guano, or bat damage to insulation. Give our team of bat removal specialists a call for a complete and thorough bat infestation inspection. Call 877-264-3638.Mishawaka Bat Removal Service

Removal of Raccoons in the Attic Indianapolis

Removal of Raccoons in the Attic Indianapolis

®American Animal Control, LLC of Indianapolis provides professional raccoon removal services for all of Indianapolis and surrounding areas.

Removal of Raccoons in the Attic IndianapolisAs raccoons begin to enter attics for the winter most Indianapolis homeowners are not aware of what kind of damage these masked bandits can do to the attic of a home. Providing removal of raccoons in attics for almost 20 years our raccoon removal specialists have seen hundreds of thousands of dollars in damage to homes. Most raccoons will climb gutter down spouts, outside corners, overhanging tree limbs, and even climb bricks holding on with just their unbelievable strong claws and fingers. Once on top of the roof raccoons will rip open roof vents, gable end vents, or even just dig a whole right through the roof shingles and roof decking. Once our raccoon removal specialist received a call from a homeowner that had just moved into a brand new home. She said as she was backing out of her driveway she looked up at her roof and saw a hole the size of a basketball where the female raccoon dug through her roof and entered into the attic. With great strength and determination if a raccoon wants into your attic there is very little you can do to stop it, other than be pro active if you see a raccoon hanging around call the raccoon removal professionals at ®American Animal Control, LLC to trap and remove the raccoon from your property before it gets into your attic.

Once a raccoon has entered into the attic of a home it is very important to get it trapped and removed before any damage is done. Raccoons will destroy HVAC ducts, tear up attic insulation, and urinate and leave feces all over the attic.
Many Indianapolis homeowners will hear slight noises in the attic and think its just mice.

The longer the raccoons are in the attic the worse the damage becomes. Raccoons will begin to create “litter boxes” in the attic. We have actually seen on several occasions that the raccoon “latrine” has saturated the drywall in the attic and the whole entire litter box has fallen through the ceiling into the bedrooms of the home.

Trapping and removing raccoons in the attic is best done at the entrance point. Many homeowners will try trapping the raccoons themselves by setting open baited cages outside on the ground. This does not ensure that even if you catch a raccoon that it is one the one living in your attic. Most neighborhoods in the Indianapolis area have many raccoons and setting open baited cages may lure in other neighborhood raccoons. The other concern is most traps on the market for residential use are not heavily built and many times raccoons will bust out of the trap and become trap shy. ®American Animal Control, LLC provides Indianapolis homeowners with the most advanced raccoon traps and trapping techniques on the market. Our custom built raccoon traps are second to none in the industry. Locating the main entry point is the only way to stop raccoons getting into the attic. Our raccoon specialists trap hundreds of raccoons in attics every year. In most cases no raccoon bait or lure is needed with our trapping techniques. Barricading a trap right on the entry point ensures NO “non-target” raccoons will be trapped. Meaning the only raccoon we are trapping is the raccoon or raccoons in the attic. No other neighborhood raccoons will be trapped. The way this trapping method works is if the raccoons are out of the attic at the time the trap is set they can’t get back in. If the raccoon is in the attic at the time we set the trap up, there is no way out but into the trap. Generally we will take the first one away then reset the trap just to be sure there is no other raccoons in the attic.

We are a full service raccoon removal company. ®American Animal Control, LLC raccoon removal specialist are also skilled carpenters.

We can repair all damage to the roof, soffit, or vents from the raccoons.
