Striped skunks are common and found throughout Illinois. Rural areas with rolling hills or bluffs and a mixture of farmland, timber and pastureland tend to support the highest numbers. Striped skunks are abundant in some urban areas, especially those located along railroads or high-tension power lines because these features provide travelways and denning sites. Outbreaks of diseases like rabies and distemper can cause a striped skunk population to decline sharply. Overall, this species is probably less common now than it was 50 years ago because small cattle operations and small grain farming have given way to larger, less diverse crop farms.
Contrary to popular belief, carpenter ants do not actually eat the wood. Rather, they hollow it out to nest inside, which may result in structural significant damage. There are many different types of ants each posing a different threat to the safety of your property, family, and home. An ant invasion to your home is nothing to be taken lightly or left unattended to. While biting ants can inflict physical damage to your body as depicted in the picture, other ants can effect an increase is asthma symptoms and even food poisoning.
Birds like to nest inside attic or corners of house or gutters. They can be very messy and leave bird droppings in your attic or on the side of your house. Some common birds that like to get into your attic or parts of your house are the common sparrow, starlings and pigeons. The most common pest bird in the wildlife control industry is the pigeon, as seen to the left. Pigeons are common in urban areas, and live very well in conjunction with people. They often roost in public areas, such as on building ledges, beams, and store signs.
