Why hire us to help with Ann Arbor Wildlife Control Services?
We are experts with Ann Arbor MI humane animal removal and trapping of wildlife 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.
Wildlife living in attics or crawlspaces are usually highly territorial and have been known to charge at humans that come into the space in attempts to remove them. Additionally, animal feces carry roundworm eggs that are highly toxic to humans and can cause a disease that can result in blindness and nervous system damage if contracted.
Ann Arbor Raccoon Removal Services
Raccoons are nocturnal, so when they get into your home the first irritation you will notice is their late night noises. Not only are these noises annoying and make it difficult for you to sleep, they can also cause extreme unrest and anxiety for small children and family pets. While raccoons may not seem like that big of a problem initially, they are actually highly destructive and can cause substantially more damage than a small hole in your roof or fence and some nighttime noise.
If raccoons do find a way inside your home, they will tear up insulation in your attic, rip apart ductwork, destroy the insulation around pipes, chew and destroy wires and cables creating fire hazards, and generally be a messy and smelly nuisance. If you suspect you may have raccoons you should look for a few telltale signs to ensure that you catch them before they destroy too much.
Ann Arbor Skunk Removal Services
Skunks live in almost every neighborhood and while they are generally harmless unless you happen to get in the way of their foul smelling spray, these animals being in and around your home can be a big problem if left untreated. This calls for immediate professional skunk removal.
Skunks have an affinity for digging under decks and homes. This can cause foundation problems due to water coming in constant contact with the foundation of your home and slowly eroding it away. 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. Avoiding any potential rabies related incidents is an important part of effective skunk removal.
Squirrel Removal Services
Squirrels are common animals in almost every neighborhood and these animals are generally harmless and appear fairly content gathering nuts; however, squirrels can find their way into your home and around your property. If they get into your attic, crawl space, or other places, they can actually cause a significant amount of damage. That is why it is vitally important to deal with the squirrel infestation as soon as it starts.

If There is a Raccoon in My Attic, How Likely is It to Come Down into My Home?
How to Trap a Squirrel In An Attic
If you have been hearing attic noises, skunk odor creeping its way into your home or an animal living in your chimney, it can be intrusive and truly frightening. Aside from that, nuisance wildlife in your home can cause serious damage and even pose a serious threat to you, your family and even pets. Attempting to get rid of unwanted wildlife yourself can not only be dangerous and illegal, it can also really complicate the problem. Animals that have had failed attempts at capture, almost always learn the working of a trap and will never enter one again. If they do, they usually get pretty good at stealing the bait right out of the trap without setting it off. If you are looking for a wildlife removal company near you, we are your complete resource to MI wildlife removal solutions, information and wildlife control companies near you in Michigan.
One of the most common complaints involving nuisance wildlife is the noise they can produce in a home. Many home owners may be unaware that they even have an unwanted visitor in their home if not for the noise. Certain animals may spend their time crawling around (and doing other things) in their newfound home (your attic, soffits, walls, garage, etc.). The scurrying scratching, chewing, or vocal noise that you hear may be most unwelcome, particularly from nocturnal animals. The primary culprits are raccoons, squirrels, rats, and mice, but other creatures may be at work. Give me a call, and I will identify the source of the noise, as well the means by which the animals are entering the structure. Get the problem fixed, and you will sleep better at night!

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.
