Troy MichiganThe cost of wildlife removal can truly range as there is no one set price that can meet the needs of hundreds of nuisance wildlife scenarios. After a phone consultation to determine your exact needs, we can better gauge a price for handing your issue. Trapping costs are typically are set price unless the area is unsafe or has limited access forcing us to use alternate or modified methods to trap the animals. Dead animal removal can also vary as animals tend to die in some very inaccessible places or will die right on your lawn. Size and disposal will also play a role. Animal proofing costs will vary depending on the location of the area if up high, if there are rocks, roots or bushes to deal with if on the ground and what the size of the area is that we are excluding to wildlife. As you can see, the cost of Troy wildlife removal really is a tailored price to your exact needs.

With raccoons traps can be set on the roof, on the ground where they are gaining access and also inside the attic if need be. Each has its pros and cons. Setting up for squirrel removal or raccoon traps on the roof means it must be secured down by screwing to the roof. Of course, all holes are properly sealed after the trapping has been completed. Raccoon removal that is done inside an attic, can also bring its own set of issues. When a raccoon has been caught and needs to be brought down and through the home, it can potentially be messy. Raccoon urinate when they are afraid, they can usually have feces in the cage, can cut themselves on the steel, and loose hair and they rub against the cage. This means you can have blood, hair, urine and raccoon feces trailing into your home if the trap has not been contained tightly. For squirrels, attic traps work wonderful as they don’t really present all of the issue raccoons do. Traps set on the ground for raccoon where they are climbing up can be effective but they can also catch random animals that find the bait first. Skunk traps are set at the den site, which is most effective for quick capture.

Many are interested in the bait we use. For squirrels, peanut butter is usually the bait of choice as it has a strong odor and lasts quite a while. Raccoon will eat almost anything, so any thing from cat food and sardines to marshmellows are used depending on the time of year and situation. Skunk are omnivores as well so cat food, sardines and carrots are all baits that are used to catch them.

We do get sprayed from time to time when providing skunk removal and while there is no way to keep a skunk from spraying, patience and experience can calm a skunk’s nerves to keep it from spraying. When we are sprayed, baking soda, peroxide and dish soap is the only solution that breaks down all 3 molecules of skunk odor. Tomato juice is an internet tale.

Troy wildlife removal services have various laws that govern what is done with the species of each animal. While some have to be euthanized by Michigan state law, others are able to be relocated.

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.

Raccoon Removal Services

Having any pest can be a problem, but having a large pest can be harmful in many ways to your family. Raccoons are very intelligent and curious animals. They can clear your garden, cause structural damage, rummage through your garbage cans and carry many diseases. Raccoon removal services would be the best option, for any home owner with this large pest. Doing the removal yourself, can put you at risk and should be handled by a raccoon removal service expert from Platinum Wildlife Removal.

Raccoons prefer heavily wooded areas but can be found in many suburban and urban areas. They make their homes in various places such as, not limited to, barns, garages, sewers, sheds and even in your home. Attics, basements and the crawl spaces are well suited for these pests. Not only can these animals cause structural damage and other issues, but they can also carry rabies. Rabies is a life threating viral disease that causes the brain to swell. Which in turn, makes a person or animal secrete saliva from the mouth, (foaming at the mouth) as well as severe mental issues caused by the swelling of the brain. Being in contact with a person or animal that has rabies is dangerous due to this virus being highly contagious. Treatment for this is crucial to keep a person alive but it is also a painful process. 

These large pests can maneuver and eat through many materials that your home is made up of. They sometimes stop at nothing to get to a food source. These cute yet harmful animals become mature around the age of one and can start reproducing where ever they make their homes within a year of their birth. Putting the removal of these pests on hold could potentially multiply the damage. Hiring [OUR COMPANY NAME] would decrease the chances of any more damage, spreading of diseases, and reduce the risk of being bitten. These animals may be cute but they are wild and will do anything to protect themselves or their kits.

Hiring professional raccoon removal services can get costly, depending on the infestation status, but it is less costly than repairing a home damaged by these pests. Repairing or replacing beams, sheet rock, insulation, and pipes, as well as, plants in a garden will cost you more than having a professional from Platinum Wildlife Removal remove these pests for you. Salvaging a garden, that these animals have infested, is almost impossible. Everything in your garden will be eaten and/or destroyed and you will have little to nothing to show for your hard work. 

Being bitten by these animals is more common than people think. It can happen anywhere at any time, especially a raccoon infected with rabies. They are mean, wild and unpredictable. Keeping your family and home safe should be the main priority. Hiring Platinum Wildlife Removal can not only save you time and money but also keeps your family safe. These professionals are trained and can remove these pests with or without lethal force. Removing these animals yourself is not recommended unless you have the necessary training and skills to do so. Hiring a professional from Platinum Wildlife Removal is a better option in keeping your family and home safe.

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.
