We recently removed a squirrel from an Elgin Illinois home’s attic and found this MASSIVE Squirrel nest. Based on the size this nest would have taken years to build.
Pigeons, cute while you are tossing breadcrumbs to them while sitting on a park bench, are not so cute when they are nesting and pooping on your balcony or patio. In fact they are gross and carry a wicked amount of diseases. In this video we show you how we can prevent that from happening without the use of chemicals, poisons, or sticky gels by using professional exclusion products designed to keep them off of or out of areas they should not have had access to in the first place. Tony and Brandon go sky high in a super scary 100 foot high lift to get the job done!
Here Tony provides a simple explanation of how to treat and remove a Bald-Faced Hornet nest from the side of a house.

Today Tony from Animal Trackers Wildlife Shows you want the next of the Chimney Swift looks like. This protected bird species is truly remarkable. Because they are a protected species we cannot do anything to remove them if they get into your chimney. The good news is these birds will migrate south in the fall, in which we then recommend installing a new chimney cap to prevent them from coming back next season.
Cool and Interesting Facts about Chimney Swifts
- These birds fly constantly, if they aren’t sleeping or nesting they are in flight. These birds even bathe in flight by sliding down to water.
- They have a glue like saliva that they use to “cement” their nests to chimney walls and rock faces.
- These birds feed solely on insects such as mosquitos.
