Brandon was very helpful and knowledgeable. He freely suggested various improvements for our house, not trying to sell service but suggesting things I could do myself. He arrived on time and performed the work quickly and efficiently, removing a squirrel from our attic.

Response by Animal Trackers Wildlife Company: Hi Kathy, thanks for reviewing our company. I'm sorry you didn't have the best customer service experience. Please let me know how I could've made it better. Also if you continue to have a skunk problem in the next 6 weeks, we can drop off a trap at no charge. You would just pay for the animals caught. Thanks for the business Brandon

Review by in Chicago, IL
Contacted me quickly and came out the next day. Jim was super nice, professional, prompt, quick and I learned a lot about skunks! He set up a trap, but unfortunately 6 days later still no critter. Jim did spray some expanding foam by the outside wall where he found the hole so hopefully nothing else will seek shelter there. Even though, nothing was caught, I was impressed with the service all the same. I haven't heard any more scampering. It could have left before I even called. I never saw the animal (and I did wait a week before even discovering the mounds of dirt that were in my mudroom entrance). Keeping my fingers crossed that whatever it was, it is gone. I would totally use this company again, if necessary. Would have liked to get a bit of a discount since there was no animal, but I knew the cost of setting up the trap. After I wrote this review, I had a plumber come to check the drain in the mudroom and his assessment was that I have a rat problem! Jim never said anything about rats so I am a little confused now. I have not seen any rats but plumber did point out some feces. Disappointed that Animal Trackers had not noticed this.

Review by in Westchester, IL
I was VERY impressed with Animal Trackers. We thought we had skunks in our front yard. Branden came out today and he thoroughly inspected our yard, and house. He said that what we were seeing were walnut shells from a neighbors tree ( from squirrels). He told us the outside of our house looked safe, and that we did NOT have skunk, racoon, possum or other problems other than some hungry squirrels. He even checked for grubs in our lawn ( a potential food source for skunks). He did NOT rush the inspection, he check everything, window well covers, foundation, and the whole yard ( front, back and 2 side yards). We got a clean bill of heath. He told us that there was no need to set any traps. We paid him for a service call which was below what I was originally quoted. He did not try to sell us anything, and answered all our questions about wildlife issues ( we live very close to a forest preserve). I was very impressed, he was very professional and knowledgeable.

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
