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!

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.

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.

Chimney Animals: Animals living in a chimney are typically the result of having an uncapped chimney that is either near branches or on a home that is frequented with animals. Common situations for Michigan wildlife in chimneys is raccoons and raccoon mother with litters of babies denning in the spring, squirrels that have fallen down the chimney and are unable to climb back up, birds that have fallen down and are unable to fly up the chimney, chimney swifts which are able to fly out once reaching adult size, bat colonies roosting inside of the chimney and we have even encountered a duck that had fell into the chimney and sadly died.Animal removal from chimneys will vary in methods from animal to animal. Raccoons are usually either fished out by hand or if the correct time of the year they areevicted with a hormone treatment, squirrels can typically be scared into running up a rope that has been dropped down the chimney, birds that can not fly must be hand removed, and chimney swifts and bats must be removed with a one way valve once the young are able to fly.
Oakland County Wildlife Removal Tip: Will repellents get a squirrel out of the attic? Raccoons are one of the squirrels biggest predators so if the squirrel can smell the bigger animal around, it’ll be more likely to flee and set up home somewhere else. That’s the fact of the matter - that’s the way the natural food chain works and sometimes, just sometimes, you can use this in your favor. If you have a squirrel in your attic, you won’t be able to deal with the problem completely until you’ve sealed up all the holes and fixed all the damage, but if trapping and removing the creature seems a little too difficult, there is one repellent you could try. It’s the only one that has been proven to have any effect - eviction fluid. It’s made with the urine and other bodily fluids from male raccoons and it can work to get rid of squirrels and female raccoons in some places. With squirrels, it’s because it thinks there is a threat of attack nearby. If you felt that, wouldn’t you want to move away too?
