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 Keep Skunks out of My Garbage Cans
Squirrels Removal From Attics
Do Squirrels Carry Rabies?
One of the most common complaints involving nuisance wildlife is the noise they can produce in a home. Many home owners may be unaware that they even have an unwanted visitor in their home if not for the noise. Certain animals may spend their time crawling around (and doing other things) in their newfound home (your attic, soffits, walls, garage, etc.). The scurrying scratching, chewing, or vocal noise that you hear may be most unwelcome, particularly from nocturnal animals. The primary culprits are raccoons, squirrels, rats, and mice, but other creatures may be at work. Give me a call, and I will identify the source of the noise, as well the means by which the animals are entering the structure. Get the problem fixed, and you will sleep better at night!

You have been hearing of incessant noises in your attic, the unpleasant whiff of skunk odor floating around the house and found a raccoon living in your chimney. Dealing with these nuisance animals can cause a great deal of stress in your home.
The best way to remove these animals is through live trapping, setting up traps and baits. However, this method can cause several problems if not executed well and can be punishable by law for animal cruelty. Setting up a trap that is too small or incorrect bait could lead you to trap the wrong animal.
Some of them are pretty clever stealing the bait from the trap without being caught, too. Worse, after figuring out the trap, they will never enter it again. With numerous attempts of failing to capture them, it is advisable to contact a professional from the wild animal control services to step in.
Most Common Wildlife Nuisances
If left uncapped, chimneys have the potential to be a home for animals living off in the nearby branches. It can also be a breeding ground for colonies of bats, birds that fell off, or a shelter for a mother raccoon and her children on spring time.
Wildlife may seek out your home as a shelter from possible predators, which can lead to complications. A raccoon can tear up the insulation inside the house by making entry holes, squirrels may eat house wires that can lead to an unexpected fire, and droppings of bats in humid areas cause lung disease.
Stoop and Deck Animals
Feces, a pile of dirt, and animals could die under the decks which may need extraction as soon as possible. Skunks could also spray on stoop and decks.
Wildlife Control Services
Improper wildlife trapping can cause you a hefty fine or even jail time. Trapping without a license in some states is considered illegal. It is therefore imperative to remove these animals in a humane manner according to the laws of the state.
Exclusion and repairs
Closing off points of entry from your house is one of the ways to exclude animals from your property. Concrete and metal materials are used to prevent possible chewing by these animals in the future.
Treatment and Sanitation
There is possible contamination in the area due to the fact that these animals breed, defecate and urinate in the area. This can spread through the insulation and possibly infect you and your loved ones. The insulation, therefore, needs to be replaced because it may cause health risks. Antimicrobial treatment and proper sanitation should be undertaken as well.
If left unsupervised, wild animals can cause serious damage to properties. It can also pose a potential threat to you and your loved ones as well. You should seek out professional help from wild animal control services should these problems arise because safety should always be your main concern.
