Squirrel Removal and Squirrel Control Services
Squirrels are a tricky animal to deal with. A common neighborhood animal, squirrels often find themselves nesting in the warmth and comfort of your attic or crawl space. Notorious hoarders, squirrels have been known to keep a hoard of food and other things in the place they decide to nest. This can result in decaying and rotting food smells wafting in your home. Squirrels also chew up electrical wires causing fire hazards and trample down insulation, making your house lose heat in the winter and air conditioning in the summer. All of these problems are nothing compared to the constant scuttling noises that squirrels often make.
We are experts at squirrel removal and can have them out of your home in no time after our initial inspection. After the inspection, we will replace your damaged insulation, clean out and deodorize the area, fully sanitize the nesting space, and recommend electricians if the need is there.
We are also experts at raccoon trapping and raccoon removal as well as skunk control and skunk removal. We are committed to being here for you whenever the need arises, so do not hesitate to call us for your animal control and management needs and services.

One important thing that we always keep in mind when conducting animal proofing is to make sure that we see the world through the eyes of an animal. It may sound silly but once you start to think about it, it is actually a smart strategy. We will conduct a thorough inspection of your property and look for things that could potentially attract unwanted animals such as skunks, raccoons, rats, beavers, etc. We will analyze your property intensively, from looking for holes under your decks to cutting off tree branches hanging on top of your roofs (some animals, like raccoons, are smart enough to climb trees to gain access to your chimney). We often look for food sources like trash bins and vegetable gardens, these things can attract animals like magnets.
Many of Michigan's wild animals have learned to adapt and even thrive in our homes. For example some wildlife have found that attics make great places to live. Other animals find refuge under homes or porches. Invariably, these animals cause damage. Rodents, like squirrels and rats, love to chew on electrical wires once in an attic, and this causes a serious fire hazard. Raccoons can cause serious contamination in an attic with their droppings and parasites. Same goes for bat or bird colonies. We specialize in solving Michigan's wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, we do it all.
We provide humane raccoon removal for Northwest Michigan residents. Raccoons are known for their intelligence and their capacity to create solutions to their problems. A typical raccoon is equipped with paws that can clasp and shred a broad range of objects. Raccoons are infamous for utilizing the small doors designed for your pets. Once a raccoon has entered your home, it may not want to leave. You could soon find yourself with a family of masked critters in your fireplace or attic. We can help with the humane raccoon removal Northwest Michigan residents need. We can assist you in getting rid of that family of raccoons that has invaded your dwelling, and we will safely transport the animals to a more appropriate environment. Whether you have raccoons in your attic or digging in your garbage give us a call. We can help!

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.
Wild Animal Control Services
A wild animal that becomes too close that it becomes a nuisance could be a wild life control problem. Although it is more than just setting up a cage trap to get rid of these unwanted animals. If not executed well, there could be serious repercussions to both the homeowner and the animals themselves.
There are animal protection laws governing the state and improper handling of these creatures could mean hefty fines or jail-time for animal cruelty. To prevent these damages, it is almost imperative to seek out a professional in wild animal control services.
Does it become a problem?
The best way to get started is to first assess the situation in your home. A raccoon forms a lair with her babies on the attic during spring. Is there a chance that a family member could be attacked? It's important that you will be educated with relevant information about the profiles of these animals to make sure they do not cause possible danger.
Once the profile of the exact animal species has been singled out, the next process is finding the extent of the damage, and looking for possible solutions and management procedures that could be done to extract these animals from your home in the most humane way as possible. Practical humane strategies should be done such as humane animal exclusion, modification of habitats and changing cultural customs. The animal control management aims to offer an effective way of finding a viable solution that is carried on long-term.
Types Of Wildlife Control
Wild Animal Trapping
Wildlife trapping should be generally carried out as humane as possible. Strategies and management with these creatures may vary, depending on the situation, but the end goal is to relocate them in a wildlife preserve. More importantly, they are dealt accordingly under the protection of the state law.
Damage and Repairs
Proper exclusion repairs should be carried out if animals live previously inside your house. All possible animal entry points should be identified and need to be sealed shut to be guaranteed animal proof. Infected insulation caused by animal infestations are replaced.
Clean-up and Decontamination
The usual scenario would be animals dragging food on your attic, stoop or deck. Some might nest, while others would urinate and defecate all over the place. After these animals are properly taken care of, the area should be decontaminated and fogged by an anti-microbial treatment. Droppings are removed and the whole area should undergo proper sanitation. These are carried out to ensure the overall safety of your health.
And when all is said and done, it goes without saying that you will require professionals to help you with any wild animal control services. At all cost, do not approach the issue on your own and instead, leave it to these experts as they have the required knowledge and skills as well as equipment that will ensure the job is carefully accomplished.
