Raccoon Removal and Management
Raccoons can be a particularly tricky nuisance animal to remove. They typically get into home through holes in the roof and then nest in the insulation in attics. Aside from the irritating nighttime noises and frequent unpleasant smells, raccoons can destroy attics by gnawing wires and ripping apart ductwork. If you suspect you have raccoons, it is vitally important that you call a professional to remove them. Raccoons are very territorial, especially if they have just given birth to a new litter. This means that they have been known to charge at humans who come up to attics to remove them. Additionally, the feces that they leave in and around where they have been nesting can contain diseases and parasites incredibly hazardous to humans. We are raccoon removal experts and will get your home back from these nuisance animals as well as manage all the animal damage repairs and cleanup.
Chipmunk and Squirrel Trapping and Control
Chipmunks and squirrels are common animals in almost every neighborhood. While these animals are generally harmless and cause little damage, they can find their way into your home and nest in your attic or crawl space. Chipmunks can create deep burrows that can disrupt the foundation of your home and cause water problems for your basement. Squirrels can gain entry into your attic and gnaw on wires, trample down insulation can be a general loud disruption for your everyday life.

Pest Control Services
Whenever you have wildlife control services in your home, you will need specialized wildlife control services to solve this problem. This is because it may be illegal in most of the states to trap animals or relocate them if you do not have a permit. In addition, if you carry out the procedure of trapping the animals in an incorrect manner, the animals may become educated to become trap shy or trap smart. If the animals become educated to fear traps, it becomes expensive to trap them. There are many other advantages of trying to remove the animals by yourself especially when you do not have the right skills to do so. Wildlife must be handled with care during the process of removal and this is the major reason why expert services are needed for this task. Our company offers just that.

We do so by using trapping methods that are specific to each species of animal that you as the home owner wants trapped. Our methods are also humane in that we ensure that all the animals are captured alive.

Bats such as the Pallid Bat have been known to occupy structures such as barns, bridges and even buildings that are both occupied by people as well as vacant buildings. That is just an example of the many species of bats that can invade human occupied buildings and cause discomfort
Bat Prevention Services
In case bats invade your home and you want to get rid of them, it is always advisable to choose bat control services that are humane and not harmful to the animals. So you should avoid services that involve trapping, use of poison or the use of bat repellents.
Where Bats Tend To Roost
There are common places that bats tend to roost. These places are Eave troughs, under shingles, gable vents and the most notable, hanging above door. Bats in these different places require different treatment and different methods of removal.
Removing bats roosting on eaves
Removing bats from eaves is quite simple since it only requires a net or an exclusion tube. This helps as the bat will be able to fly out but won't be able to fly back in.
Removing bats from gable vents
There are a number of ways to get rid of bats roosting in gable vents.
One of these ways is hand removal, you have to take safety precautions such as wearing gloves and using a stable ladder, but this method is not recommended.
Another way of removing bats from gable vents is by spraying the bats with water from the inside of the house until they fly out, once they are out sealing of the gable vents is necessary to prevent the bat from coming back in. also, other openings in the house should be sealed.
Removing bats from ridge vents
There are different types of ridge vents. Some ridges have plastic caps, some have metal caps and some have interwoven ridge caps, bats roosting in the above mentioned ridge vents have different ways of removal.
- Metal ridge caps – one should remove the rubber end pieces which will let the bats in through the end caps.
- Plastic ridge caps – These are good for air flow but are not effective when it comes to preventing bats from getting into the attic. Plastic ridge caps like cobra style can be used to prevent bats from entering your house.
- Interwoven ridge caps – this is the most recommended for bat control. It is not as effective in ventilation but it won't let bats in unless cap is broken.
It is advisable to call and expert who will remove it by hand. But if that isn't possible, you can try a couple of techniques to get rid of the bats. Some of them are.
- Covering the area where the bat grips onto with aluminum foil. This will prevent the bat from gripping onto the surface

Bats are excluded from your home or attic through a live exclusion process. This is done by bat proofing your home with screen, caulking, caps, etc. Also a one-way trap door is installed at the entry point so the bats can get out but not get back in. We are not exterminators or a bat pest control company. We strictly and proudly only use poison free bat control methods. When thinking of exterminator or pest control company we urge you to think of the humane method for bat removal. Bats are protected both federally and in the state of Michigan. No ultrasonic, high frequency device, or bat repellent will get rid of your bats nor keep them out. Moth balls or "bat away" never works. In fact it is harmful to have in your attic or home. FTC gives a warning on the use of ultrasonic pest control devices. For more information check out our "How to Get Rid of Bats" Page.
