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.

HOW TO GO ABOUT REMOVING WILDLIFE FROM YOUR PROPERTY
There are two main ways of removing wildlife from your compound or house; doing it yourself or calling for professional wildlife removal services. The first method can be achieved if you have some knowledge and experience in wildlife removal and there are various traps and guides available for homeowners. However, a great concern and challenge arises when this task is handled by amateurs. There are various laws that dictate how wildlife should be handled and treated. Setting up a trap may snare the wrong animal and relocation of any trapped animal may amount to illegal act. The best way to go about removing wildlife from your property usually entails calling for expert help from wildlife removal companies.
Why you need a professional
The reasons for using expert services are quite obvious and straightforward. To start with, wildlife can be very dangerous even though some may look harmless. A simple bruise or scratch from wild animals such as mice, raccoons, hedgehogs or porcupine can be life threatening. Snake bites could end your life within minutes. What’s more, the process involved may require you to climb a ladder to reach high elevations. Without prior experience, this will increase the risk of accidents and panics. It is therefore recommendable to use professional technicians who have not only been trained on the laws and procedures regarding wildlife removal, but also have profound experience from handling wild animals throughout their careers. Moreover, expert animal removal companies provide a range of services besides the trapping and relocation of the animal. They offer inspections (for pest and parasites if the animal was in your house), damage repair, clean up and restoration as well as preventative recommendations. In addition to removing the animal, they will leave your property better placed to keep away any future invasions.
