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.
Home Restoration Services
After the animals are safely removed, we will start our restoration process. Not only we will fully clean out any debris left by the squirrels including their nests and any food stashes, we will fully deodorize the space and ensure they any feces and/or urine is safely removed. Then we will replace trampled insulation in the attic and squirrel proof and access points so the animals cannot return.
Looking for Wildlife Control or Bat Removal Services?
Nuisance animals cause odor problems in a variety of ways. Their excrement is a primary source of odor problems, and often quite noticeable if an animal has taken up residence somewhere in your home. Animal carcasses are another source of odor. Skunks present a whole other dimension in odor problems. I can identify the source of animal odors, and eliminate both the current source of the odor (for example, excrement removal) and the underlying cause (the animal's entry into your home). This work may be covered by homeowners insurance.
The capture and removal of nuisance animals in the home is only half of the problem. If the entryway to the house is not found, a new animal will take the old one's place. This is particularly true of the spaces under porches, decks, and sheds. These areas provide ideal habitat for a number of animals. Michigan Wildlife Removal can make sure that no animals invade your space again. Our exclusion barriers are built to last, and are 100% effective at keeping unwanted critters from getting back in.
You removed the animals from the attic, but are you finished yet? Nuisance wildlife in your attic can create problems many homeowners never think of. These animals can carry ectoparasites, which after the wildlife host is evicted, may move inside the home looking for a new host—YOU! Bat bugs, mites, ticks and fleas are just some of the ectoparasites you need to be concerned about. Mice in the attic, bats in the attic or various other vistors are notorious for bringing these pests in. Ask our Wildlife Management Specialists to inspect your attic and treat for these critters, after your problem species is removed.

To clean the attic, I not only remove all of the waste by hand, I use special cleaners, including an enzyme-based cleaner that eliminates any biohazard organic waste from animals, including droppings and urine. I use the electric powered atomizer as shown in the below photo, which creates a fine mist that flows through the whole attic and gets every nook and cranny, for 100% coverage and cleanup. To protect myself against insulation fibers and animal biohazard, I wear a disposable Tyvek suit and I wear the respirator mask, as shown above. This fogging machine, also called an atomizer, sprays my cleaning solution in a fine mist that permeates the entire attic, and makes certain attic cleanup scenarios easy. In a case like this, in which the homeowner did not want total insulation replacement, the enzyme-based cleaner in the atomizer does a good job of breaking down and sanitizing the contaminated areas of the attic. If your attic has wildlife waste or animal poop, then this is one method that can kill harmful pathogens along with the odor. Homeowner's insurance will pay for attic cleanup and restoration in the case of raccoon damage, because of the potential health risks.
Sometimes a homeowners insurance policy can cover the remediation of insulation when you have had a nuisance wildlife infestation. This depends on the insurance company and the type of policy you have purchased through them. Some insurance companies will say no coverage for urine / feces related damage. Nuisance animals will also burrow through insulation and make tunnels throughout the attic space. This can commonly mat down the insulation and cause damage to the insulation itself by changing R-Value in the contaminated insulation. This is something that can be mentioned when the insurance company says they do not cover urine or droppings from nuisance wildlife animals. Contact me to have a wildlife professional provide attic restoration services. Decontamination of the attic using bacteria killing remedies is key to eliminate wildlife scent from your attic.
