With raccoons traps can be set on the roof, on the ground where they are gaining access and also inside the attic if need be. Each has its pros and cons. Setting up for squirrel removal or raccoon traps on the roof means it must be secured down by screwing to the roof. Of course, all holes are properly sealed after the trapping has been completed. Raccoon removal that is done inside an attic, can also bring its own set of issues. When a raccoon has been caught and needs to be brought down and through the home, it can potentially be messy. Raccoon urinate when they are afraid, they can usually have feces in the cage, can cut themselves on the steel, and loose hair and they rub against the cage. This means you can have blood, hair, urine and raccoon feces trailing into your home if the trap has not been contained tightly. For squirrels, attic traps work wonderful as they don’t really present all of the issue raccoons do. Traps set on the ground for raccoon where they are climbing up can be effective but they can also catch random animals that find the bait first. Skunk traps are set at the den site, which is most effective for quick capture.
Many are interested in the bait we use. For squirrels, peanut butter is usually the bait of choice as it has a strong odor and lasts quite a while. Raccoon will eat almost anything, so any thing from cat food and sardines to marshmellows are used depending on the time of year and situation. Skunk are omnivores as well so cat food, sardines and carrots are all baits that are used to catch them.
We do get sprayed from time to time when providing skunk removal and while there is no way to keep a skunk from spraying, patience and experience can calm a skunk’s nerves to keep it from spraying. When we are sprayed, baking soda, peroxide and dish soap is the only solution that breaks down all 3 molecules of skunk odor. Tomato juice is an internet tale.
Troy wildlife removal services have various laws that govern what is done with the species of each animal. While some have to be euthanized by Michigan state law, others are able to be relocated.

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.
