Ferndale Raccoon Removal
We are called to deal with raccoon infestations all of the time. Usually, homeowners find out that they have raccoons only after they have spent a few restless nights wondering what that scratching sound is in the attic. We will come into your home, find the raccoon, remove it, and then clean up and repair any damage it caused. We will also help to seal up any holes that the raccoon used for entry.
Squirrel Removal and Management
Usually squirrels are content to not bother getting into houses and nesting in attics, but sometimes they end up getting into somewhere they shouldn’t. Once they get into your home, they can wreak havoc by trampling insulation, gnawing on wires, and making a lot of noise. We can help to safely remove the squirrels and make sure that they cannot get back into your home.
Ferndale Skunk Removal
In Ferndale, skunks can be a slight issue for homeowners, especially when springtime rolls around. Skunks will burrow into gardens and destroy landscaping. They can also burrow under your deck and allow water to get next to the foundation of your home. Over time, this can erode the foundation and cause a big and expensive problem. Not the mention, if you have a resident skunk, you always have to worry about getting sprayed by the skunk, or about your pets or kids getting sprayed. We can help with this!

From replacing insulation and deodorizing to repairing any holes caused by the animals, we will restore your home to pre-animal condition. Additionally, we will take the time to animal proof your home. Our animal proofing is guaranteed for 3 to 5 years and we make sure to close up and seal any and all access points that an animal could enter through. If you suspect that you have nuisance animals, call us today!

We are happy to offer squirrel removal in Northwest Michigan. Squirrels are adorable when they are playing outdoors, but a squirrel that is trapped indoors can soon wreak havoc in your home. Squirrels have sharp teeth that are designed to chew through tough surfaces. Because they build their nests in trees, they may find their way into the uppermost corners of your abode. Although you might be able to coax the creatures away from your home’s interior, we suggest that you leave this potentially dangerous task to us. We are experienced in the humane squirrel removal Northwest Michigan residents expect. We come with traps and ladders that aid us in taking undomesticated animals away from local residences.
Wild Animal Control Services
You have been hearing of incessant noises in your attic, the unpleasant whiff of skunk odor floating around the house and found a raccoon living in your chimney. Dealing with these nuisance animals can cause a great deal of stress in your home.
The best way to remove these animals is through live trapping, setting up traps and baits. However, this method can cause several problems if not executed well and can be punishable by law for animal cruelty. Setting up a trap that is too small or incorrect bait could lead you to trap the wrong animal.
Some of them are pretty clever stealing the bait from the trap without being caught, too. Worse, after figuring out the trap, they will never enter it again. With numerous attempts of failing to capture them, it is advisable to contact a professional from the wild animal control services to step in.
Most Common Wildlife Nuisances
If left uncapped, chimneys have the potential to be a home for animals living off in the nearby branches. It can also be a breeding ground for colonies of bats, birds that fell off, or a shelter for a mother raccoon and her children on spring time.
Wildlife may seek out your home as a shelter from possible predators, which can lead to complications. A raccoon can tear up the insulation inside the house by making entry holes, squirrels may eat house wires that can lead to an unexpected fire, and droppings of bats in humid areas cause lung disease.
Stoop and Deck Animals
Feces, a pile of dirt, and animals could die under the decks which may need extraction as soon as possible. Skunks could also spray on stoop and decks.
Wildlife Control Services
Improper wildlife trapping can cause you a hefty fine or even jail time. Trapping without a license in some states is considered illegal. It is therefore imperative to remove these animals in a humane manner according to the laws of the state.
Exclusion and repairs
Closing off points of entry from your house is one of the ways to exclude animals from your property. Concrete and metal materials are used to prevent possible chewing by these animals in the future.
Treatment and Sanitation
There is possible contamination in the area due to the fact that these animals breed, defecate and urinate in the area. This can spread through the insulation and possibly infect you and your loved ones. The insulation, therefore, needs to be replaced because it may cause health risks. Antimicrobial treatment and proper sanitation should be undertaken as well.
If left unsupervised, wild animals can cause serious damage to properties. It can also pose a potential threat to you and your loved ones as well. You should seek out professional help from wild animal control services should these problems arise because safety should always be your main concern.

There are many sicknesses that humans can contract from nuisance wildlife droppings. If there has been a prolonged infestation of raccoons, bats, birds, mice, or any other wildlife, it is a good chance your attic needs to be restored. After the fecal matter of these nuisance animals sits in your attic over an extended period of time, it can start to develop spores of bacteria. Wildlife scent left in the attic will also attract more nuisance animals in the future. Usually 1-3 weeks of infestation can require the attic to be restored due to damages and wildlife scent. The offending nuisance wildlife animals should be trapped or excluded before attic clean up takes place. If you ever decide to inspect your own attic for wildlife droppings, make sure to get a quality respirator to avoid berating in any harmful material. If you are a homeowner with attic restoration questions, feel free to email me about your problems.
