Nuisance Animals

Traps Available

The Mundelein Police Department has seven (7) wildlife traps that are available to the residents of Mundelein for nuisance animals such as gophers, possums, rabbits, raccoons, skunks, and woodchucks/groundhogs. Residents can call the Mundelein Police Department’s non-emergency number at 847-968-4600 to request a trap “rental” for seven (7) days.

A police department employee will speak to you about obtaining a trap and will make a quick report with your information. You then may come into the station at your convenience to sign for the trap acknowledging that you are taking the trap home. A police department employee will show you how to set up the trap if needed and also provide you with an instructional sheet for setting the trap and what bait will typically catch the nuisance animal they are having a problem with.

After you set up the trap and catch an animal, you will again call the police department’s non-emergency number at 847-968-4600 to notify dispatch that you have an animal in the trap and a Community Service Officer will be dispatched to your house. The Community Service Officer will take the trap with the animal and dispose of the animal and then return the trap to your further use. At the end of the “rental” period (7 days) the trap is to be returned to the Mundelein Police Department in good working condition and rinsed out of any left-over bait/feces to avoid fees.

There is usually is a waiting list during the fall, summer, and spring months due to the high number or request and limited number of trap available.
