Expert Plymouth Wildlife Control Services
Why hire us to help with nuisance animal removal?
We are experts at the humane removal and trapping of raccoons as well as professionals with the cleaning and restoration of the area the raccoons have been living. It is actually fairly dangerous to attempt to do this without professional help.

Raccoon Removal and Management Services
We offer a wide variety of services, but we do offer so select specialty services. Raccoons are a difficult nuisance animal to remove from homes and they typically end up nesting in the attic after they gain entry through gaps in the roof. Because raccoons are nocturnal, you will typically hear shuffling around at night thus disrupting your sleep and peace of mind. Our Waterford raccoon removal team are professionally trained to manage raccoon removal and raccoon proofing.
Skunk Control and Management
Skunks are common animals in almost every neighborhood and these animals are generally harmless unless you happen to get in the way of their foul smelling spray; however, having these animals in and around your home can be a big problem if left untreated. Usually home owners will need professional skunk removal to handle the situation.
Not only do skunks have an affinity for digging under decks and homes to cause foundation problems, skunks also are second only to the raccoon in cases of rabies. As a carrier of rabies, they are very dangerous to humans and pets if they bite them. For all of these reasons and the ones stated above, it is vitally important that you address the nuisance skunks around your home before they cause a large amount of expensive damage.
Squirrel Removal and Squirrel Control
Squirrels are common animals and are generally harmless and appear fairly content gathering nuts; however, squirrels are clever and can find their way into your home and around your property if there are unprotected access points. We know how to get rid of squirrels and after the squirrels have been trapped we provide several squirrel control options to keep them out for good.
If squirrels do find a way inside your attic, crawl space, or other places, they can cause a significant amount of expensive damage before you even know they are there. This is why it is vitally important to deal with the squirrel infestation as soon as it starts.

Bird Removal From Vents
Wildlife control in Michigan is a constant need. Wildlife and human populations in Michigan are both growing and as they grow, conflict between homeowners and nuisance wildlife is growing. We help mediate these situations so that humans and wildlife can live in harmony through humane methods. Wildlife control does not end when the animal trapping has been completed. Without wildlife exclusion, Michigan wildlife species are notorious for locating dens that have been previously occupied and moving right in. This is in large part to the odors that are left behind from blood, hair, urine, feces and even dead carcasses.
Want to know more about the ABC's of what this area under discussion has to propose to every human being who is willing to do things for themselves? During an inspection of the structure needing bat eviction I can determine the size of the colony and the best time of the year to remove the bats. During certain times of the year bats form nursery colonies. Depending on your geographical area the bats can only be removed when the young bats are able to fly. We like to use a one-way door or referred to as a valve.
These unidirectional escapes lets the bats escape not allowing the bats back in. This type of bat control eviction is approved by the organization Bat Conservation International. The utmost critical thing in bat removal from a residence is attention to all the little construction gaps. When closing all construction gaps, anything larger than an a quarter inch should be sealed. You have to seal the entire home to foil bats from getting back in. You will go as far as sealing any fault or construction crack. Ill need to exclude vents to keep bats out, let's start by closing off louver vents, attic vents, and ridge vents if bats can breach them using 1/4 inch screen. These can be painted to match, but I have found it blends in nicely left unpainted.
Inspect chimneys, bricks and mortar may be loose forming gaps. Look for gaps around where the chimney goes through soffit, carefully seal gaps and install a one-way door, if a bat way in is there. Ridge venting systems are feasible bat entrances. When looking at the ridge vent closely you'll usually find the plastic ridge vents deform leaving gaps, I've seen where varmints have chewed a gap in the vent. I will do away with the previous roof vent system and replace it. Primarily, you lay down 1/4 inch hardware cloth this keeps the bats, mice and squirrels from getting through. We will install a one-way bat door here also if the bats were using this area. Finally you'll finish the attic vent with a vent system referred to as Cobra vent, and then finish it with top cap shingles. We try to color match any calking, tin work and exclusion work to make it merge in as if we have not had to fix the construction defects. We use paintable caulking, the silicon based calks will tinge over time.
I build my own one-way doors. After ten years of bat control, I came up with an easy effective one-way valve for bat removal. You can purchase commercially produced bat cones but I personally think they are too short and have no airflow at the base where it is attached to the structure. These one-way doors are left on for about two weeks, to let bats leave. Then I can remove the one-way door and then block the entrance. After the bats have exited through the one-way doors the bats will try for several nights to get back in, by looking for another entrance, this is why sealing every possible entrance needs to be done. This is how to evict bats.Find out more by reading our other articles on this topic and other subjects we have written related to it.

Bat Control Measures For A House
Bats are fascinating mammals with incredible appetites and impressive flying skills. Bats are admirable, to say the least, but real estate and homeowners do not want these critters dwelling inside their properties. Bats will find access points into residential and commercial buildings where they feed, breed, and nest their young. They typically settle in dark and isolated areas, such as attics, sheds, and crawl spaces. When this situation is discovered, the only solution is bat removal and bat control. Continue reading to learn why bat removal and exclusion are so crucial, and how to contact your local bat control specialist for help.
There are many signs that point towards a bat infestation. If you hear squeaking and scratching noises in the night, coming from within your home, then this could mean you have bats somewhere on your property. The most common way bat colonies are discovered in residential homes is simply by spotting them. Bats are nocturnal and come out at night to feed on insects. They are hard to miss when flying from their roosts.
Once bats are removed from a property, bat prevention and control should be implemented. This involves cleaning up the area that was contaminated and soiled, then repairing any structural damages caused by the bats. Once the mess is cleaned and sanitized, and the repairs are complete, preventative maintenance is the final step.
Once you get rid of bats in your property, have your professional bat exclusion experts conduct a home inspection to determine what areas are vulnerable and weak. They should offer interior and exterior property inspections that allow them to determine where animals are entering the premises and what spots may be potential access points in the future. This inspection will let the specialist know where to patch up access points and how to prevent bats and other animals from coming back. Bat-proofing is the most important part of the process because it eliminates the problem altogether.
You removed the animals from the attic, but are you finished yet? Nuisance wildlife in your attic can create problems many homeowners never think of. These animals can carry ectoparasites, which after the wildlife host is evicted, may move inside the home looking for a new host—YOU! Bat bugs, mites, ticks and fleas are just some of the ectoparasites you need to be concerned about. Mice in the attic, bats in the attic or various other vistors are notorious for bringing these pests in. Ask our Wildlife Management Specialists to inspect your attic and treat for these critters, after your problem species is removed.

Attic remediation is a common service offered by wildlife removal businesses. Attic remediation sometimes becomes necessary when there has been an animal infestation in the attic area. Prolonged infestations often leave large amounts of waste and urine in the attic and the only way to rid the fierce odor is to remediate all the damaged insulation, sanitize the attic, and place new insulation down. Call the animal removal company listed in your area for attic restoration. If your area is not listed in my directory, email me and I will recommend a company. Attic remediation sometimes goes hand-in-hand with wildlife problems because of the damage they can cause to your attic. It is nice to have a company that can deal with all problems associated with nuisance wildlife instead of having to hire separate companies for different services.
