Excellent service and they do what they say! Caught one skunk and prevented more tunneling by putting in mesh which was successful.

Great people and service. Will use again and recommend to neighbors.

ABC does a good job picking up caged animals and is responsible when saying they will come to your home at a given time. However, the staff "is not" trained the same way and will not leave a receipt when leaving your home after picking up an animal even when I've complained to the office staff. Neither will every tech give a call to the home when coming to pick up an animal.
Chicago, IL
I called your company last month I think it was a Sunday, I had raccoons on my roof. Someone called me back he took my info and said someone would contact me ... He called me on Monday about a hour or so he was there he left the cage it took several days but all 3 raccoons were caught and removed..I just want to say Thank you to each technician that came out they were all very polite and very efficient, they made me feel calm, by checking my roof and assured me they had not entered my roof. This the first time I ever had a situation like this.. Again Thank you to all of u .. from P.Burnett.

Called ABC with a squirrel on our roof problem. Waited a little on hold at first before someone picked up, but it was after a holiday weekend so I imagine it was busy. Once I talked to someone, they were impressively responsive and service was great. Within 36 hours the squirrel was trapped and gone. Only giving 4 stars because of the incredibly high costs they quoted to patch the soffet holes on our roof. We had a handyman do it for 25% of the price. Highly recommend for the trapping although we may have been able to find a cheaper option. For the service and speed though ABC would be tough to beat.
Skokie, IL
I have used your company to catch the skunks living under my front steps. Though it was very hard battle, your company did everything possible and skunks are gone.
Woodridge, IL
The installation of the screen went very well. The gentleman who did the work were here on time and worked really hard. I would give them a rating of ten meaning excellent!

Quick reliable, professional services.
Darien, IL
We got the fencing done all around our front porch to prevent skunks or any other animals from returning back. The two people how came to work, did an excellent job. They were very courteous and I was satisfied with the end results. Thanks to ABC Humane Wildlife Control & prevention, for taking care of the issue we were dealing with.
Chicago, IL
Very professional. Quality people. Glad I selected them.
Mount Prospect, IL
The skunks are gone so we are happy 😃.
Carol Stream, IL
I am very happy with their service. They are very knowledgeable and they continue to give good advice. We will use again if a situation arises.
Hinsdale, IL
Overall OK. The prices were ambiguous, they did not complete the job, and sent too many emails.
Downers Grove, IL
Having a critter in your attic sucks. But ABC was amazing! They were helpful, professional, knowledgeable and transparent. They did exactly what they said they would do with no extra charges. They were available whenever we needed them. I highly recommend them!
Crystal Lake, IL
While the situation was much less than optimal for us with 9 skunks removed over 10 days, I would highly recommend this service. They are expensive but they do a great job and all of their staff members were very knowledgeable and conducted themselves in nothing but a professional manner.
Hoffman Estates, IL
worked out ok...guys were good, helpful and responded quickly.
Naperville, IL
Not very happy with service at all. For the cost of $125 your company basically left us a trap, no skunk was trapped. Very difficult to contact your office by phone; hold time of 15-20 minutes for each call. After about 1 month your office called to say that they would pick up the trap. Extremely expensive for very little service.
Libertyville, IL
We used ABC Wildlife to remove what turned out to be a total of 5 raccoons creating havoc on our property. They were thorough, professional, timely, and very effective. I would certainly use ABC Wildfire again, although I hope we will not need them!
Elgin, IL
We had a squirrel "invasion" in our attic, so I looked in Angie's list for help and found ABC. They were very professional and prompt. They set up traps and removed 6 squirrels! Then they sealed the entry points (4) all within a reasonable time frame. After the technicians left, I discovered some missing ridge cap tiles they inadvertently ripped off. I called the office and they send out a technician who replaced the tiles.
I really appreciate this kind of service and can only recommend your company.

Great service. Very attentive and knowledgeable staff, always ready to assist and resolve any issue. I would recommend this company.
Villa Park, IL
Yes i was very happy with your service.
Naperville, IL
I would have been much happier if your service would have come out and captured the three remaining raccoons
in my attic. Its unfortunate I had to resort to another service to take care of the problem.

I also do not owe you an additional $75.00. I already paid for your service in capturing the "Mother" raccoon.

Great people to work with. Thorough, prompt, friendly, knowledgeable, and fairly priced. Definitely would recommend them and work with them again, if we ever need it.
Lake Villa, IL
I am very pleased. Andy is always responsive, very knowledgable and helpful. The other ABC staff I have had interaction with have been very good as well.
Thanks! John Gerend.

They do what they say and arrive when promised. 1st class group in a field that is crowded with less than admirable operations.
Hawthorn Woods, IL
Very professional, knowledgeable and responsive to our needs. Great and attentive customer service. It was a pleasure to do business with ABC Humane Wildlife.

I am a long time customer, and now retired from the pest control business myself, I have always referred my clients to ABC.

I appreciate your help in removing the destructive raccoons. Owen Mayer.

The screen up lools good but the hoops that we went through to get set up was difficult. Also, just noticed my card was hit 3 times and that first charge was supposed to be included in screen up.
Naperville, IL
There were some key takeaways from our experience with ABC. First off, the technicians were all pleasant to work with. Some consistency with the technicians would be ideal, but we understand different shifts and geography may not allow it. One frustration is that there is no open communication on when the next appointment is scheduled until they call a few hours before their window of time. Having more notice would be helpful. The trap on the roof was for a raccoon, and the trap was set up about 10 feet from the hole in the soffit, based on where the first technician said would be the best location due to the raccoon's pattern of tracking in/out of the house. The trap sat there for 4 weeks, with at least one re-bait. I had asked if we should consider moving the trap but the technician who re-baited said we need to give it more time. $75 charge to put more bait in the cage. It wasn't until I asked if we could barricade the hole so that we would be assured of capturing the momma raccoon, and within 10 hours we caught the momma. Why we waited 4 weeks to barricade I'm not sure. Had I not suggested it - and apparently had to get "management approval" - we may still not have captured the momma. All the while the family of raccoons were scratching, clawing, peeing and pooping in our attic for over a month. After the momma was captured I asked if we could now go up and capture the babies, but was told we couldn't and instead there were 2 traps put up in the attic. Nothing hit the traps in the attic for nearly a week, and then we finally caught a baby in the outside barricade trap. When I talked with the technician, he said we definitely COULD do a capture of the babies rather than the trap, so now another week went by when we could have possibly hand captured the babies. Plus avoid potential death going a week with no food. Lastly, when the technician came out to remove the traps and do one last search in the attic, he didn't find anything. However, he did say he located one raccoon dropping. I asked if he removed it or if I need to go and get it, and he recommended I go up and remove it. Not knowing exactly where it was, I couldn't find it. I would think that he could have simply placed the droppings in a baggie and removed them himself. All of the above demonstrate a troubling pattern of lack of communication and no real sense of urgency when there could be serious damage going on inside the attic. Thankfully there doesn't appear to be much damage despite the raccoons living in our attic for probably 5-6 weeks or more.
We would ask for a partial refund, perhaps of one of the $75 re-bait charges. Had the technician set up the barricade right away, we may have caught it within days instead of over a month later, and would not have had to re-bait the trap during the month.
Buffalo Grove, IL
I am not quite happy with the service. Service that was provided was to just leave a trap and wait for about 2 weeks and since the animal was not trapped just removed the trap. I felt that the $120 charge to set a trap was over priced. I probably will not be recommending the service in future :(.
Naperville, IL
Excellent communication. ABC gives phone notice of each visit and provides timely quotes for proposed services. Employees are courteous.
Libertyville, IL
We contacted Andy for a proposal for screening our large deck. quote was issued promptly and the
work was started on the date promised. All of the staff was extremely polite and answered all of
our questions and concerns. I cannot say enough positive things about ABC.
Chicago, IL
Every one was every professional and kind.
Clarendon Hills, IL
Called multiple times nobody calls back even when asked to speak to original professional that came out.
Evanston, IL
Overall we were happy with their service. We had a unique situation and ended up trapping 11 raccoons. Had to set up a scaffold to trap them at entry point. We were in a pinch as we needed to put our home on the market and with scheduled photographer coming we needed to take the scaffold down. I had to put in a lot of effort and make multiple calls, but in the end they came thru with flying colors. The scaffold was taken down in plenty of time. As for the trapping itself, there is a certain amount of self-sufficiency needed, meaning, while they put food in the trap, we ended up putting food in the trap ourselves. This is because there was a time when the food was eaten by rabbits. Also we wanted to provide a bigger temptation for the raccoon so we added more food in the trap. Given how many raccoons we trapped, a volume discount would've been nice!
Mount Prospect, IL
Positive experience, although no wildlife trapped during period of service.
