It's every dog owner's responsibility to clean up after his or her pet. Though that's easy to keep up with on walks, dogs can often transform backyards into danger zones where any step could end up a mess. That's where Doo Care's team comes in. The licensed, bonded, and insured crew pulls up in the company's distinctive green-and-white trucks to clear out poop wherever it may hide in owners' lawns. They can perform this duty as often as twice a week or make one-time visits to prepare yards for a party or a date with the cute garden across the street.
Green Home Solutions Chicago's founders consider themselves to be equal parts scientists and business people. Their main job: combing through the wild diversity of nature to find effective and safe treatments for those irritants that can plague a home. From there, they develop products derived from natural compounds to address particulates such as mold and creepy crawlies such as termites or that ghost who lives in your television. The team's treatments are safe for families and pets to be around after they've dried, unless your pets happen to be bugs.
Phil and Sue Horan not only wanted their own yard free of mosquitos, but they wanted others to experience the same sense of relief. This desire led them to create Mosquito Busters of Illinois, which employs licensed and insured technicians to spray repellent around outdoor living spaces and yards. The business does more for the community than simply rid it of mosquitoes: the Horans donate a portion of their proceeds to local charities and nonprofits.
When a widespread skunk infestation effecting Chicago suburbs made national headlines, media outlets such as USA Today, NPR, the Chicago Sun-Times, and WLS 890AM with John and Lauren hailed ABC Humane Wildlife Control & Prevention as the front lines of humane defense. Since its founding by university-trained naturalist Garon Fyffe in 1976, the team of animal experts has deftly removed unwanted animals, pests, and birds from homes and businesses. Each of the 35 state-licensed wildlife control experts employs humane processes to sniff out pest problems and solve the underlying issues, such as gaps in the foundation, tree limbs offering easy roof access, or handbills lying around offering employment in return for cheese.
