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!

As a family owned company, we know that the damaged caused by wildlife can be a huge problem. That is why when we remove animals, we also repair the damage they caused. 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!

What is the Best Bait to Trap a Skunk?
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.
Pest Animal Removal Services
Wild animals are a delight to watch except when they are in your backyard or inside your house. Then, they become a nuisance. Nuisance wildlife destabilizes the comfort of your home by altering odors by their urine and feces, making unpleasant noises and even posing a threat to the safety of your family. In such a situation, the best thing is to have professionals come to your home to remove this animals for you. Professional wildlife removers are experienced in the types of traps and bait to use for different animals so that they are caught alive and relocated to their natural habitats in the wild. Enlisting such professional wildlife removal services ensures that you do not encounter legal problems associated with animal cruelty.
While different types of animals have different preference to their choice of habitation, it is certain that they cause damage to the area. Take raccoons, for example. They tear through roofs and insulation and litter your chimney and/ or attic with contaminated feces leaving your home exposed to outward and inward dangers. Professional wildlife removers will usually trap the animals or use hormone treatment to lure the raccoons out. Other wildlife that is likely to be found in chimneys and attics include squirrels, which are notorious for gnawing electrical wires, birds and bats. Bats usually host a number of problems for homeowners including contamination of the air, corrosive droppings that pose health risks and ceiling weakening. If not completely removed, they will infest a house in a few years. Fortunately, bat removal is competently done along with other animal removal services.
Decontamination and Clean Up
Once the animals have been removed, it is important to have that space cleaned up. This includes removal of feces, nesting and dead animals. Professional wildlife removal service also includes 'disinfecting' or using antimicrobial cleaners to decontaminate insulation and dissolve the pungent smell that has been left behind. This is necessary to prevent other animals from being attracted by the odors.
Repairs and Wildlife Exclusion
After an ordeal with nuisance wildlife, chances are that something was damaged. During the cleaning process, the extent of damage can be seen. This will usually be damaged insulation and wires which will need replacement. A lot of times it is important that new pest control insulation is installed for future animal control. Wildlife exclusion is then done to keep wildlife from accessing your home. It includes sealing off entry holes, vents, chimneys and decks. The best materials should be those that the animals cannot chew, break or dig through.
Homeowners seeking wildlife solutions will most certainly find what they seek here.

Wildlife Under Stoop and Decks: Animals under decks and stoops in Michigan can create numerous incidents that can really be a problem. The worst problems that nuisance wildlife create under a deck or a stoop is skunks spraying, raccoons accumulating piles of feces and animals dying underneath, thus needing extraction. To clear up the difference between the two, typically a deck will be built over an existing stoop, so the animals living under the deck are actually living under the stoop unless the deck is very low to the ground and tightly enclosed. When a skunk is underneath and sprays, the concrete being porous as it is, will soak up the molecules drawing them into the home. Usually heat or moisture will activate these odors hence the reason they enhance when heat or air conditioning is turned on.Raccoon feces as mentioned earlier carries parasites that can be extremely harmful and even fatal to people and pets, but even more so children.
