Top Rated Wildlife Control Company Sets The Industry Standard With New Tactics
There is a new trend developing in the nuisance wildlife management field that could surprise you. That trend is not good for consumers or the community in which they live.
Using the power of the internet, these contractors advertise doing wildlife control work anywhere in the United States. But what they don't tell you is that they are 5 states away and they are going to significantly jack up the price of their work!
Here is how this program works.
The company advertises that they have wildlife services or humane wildlife control services available nationwide. An 800 or 888 number is generally listed and you call the number and speak with an "expert" who will arrange to have a "technician" take care of you.
The "expert" then finds a local "trapper" to resolve your problem and of course adds a huge amount to your bill that you would not normally pay if you had hired a local Wildlife Control Expert. The "expert" has to jack up your bill because the "trapper" is sending him one and he is going to make a nice profit for basically taking a phone call.
Here is how to avoid dealing with these rip-off artists.
1. Ask the company if they are local or if you live near another state, are they close to you?
2. Ask them for a copy of their Nuisance Wildlife Management License and a copy of their insurance. If they send you a license that is out of state and it is not near you, this is a red flag. Ask them if they will be using a sub-contractor to do the work. Chances are they will be doing that. They have to as they cannot travel to you affordably.
3. If you suspect that you are working with a company who subcontracts out their wildlife work, you are risking any type of warranty claim you might have. For example, if you have your home repaired and animals re-enter your home, is the "trapper" responsible or the out of state "expert"? Why should the out of state "expert" care, he already has your money!
4. Look locally before you hire. If they have a local number, that is a great place to start. Ask friends for referrals. Visit this website for professionals across the country, Wildlife Professionals
5. Finally, check with your Secretary of State to see if the company is licensed to do business in your state. Most states require a business to be listed with the Secretary.
There is no reason you have to pay more for wildlife control services than you should. Paying a fair price is certainly reasonable, but paying an overly inflated price is never in the best interest of the consumer. The only person who benefits from that is the out of state "expert".

Raccoons are one of the most common animals to live inside attics. They can climb anything, and tear their way into almost anything. When they live inside your attic, it's their home - and their personal toilet as well. Raccoons can cause severe sanitation problems inside an attic - they poop and pee everywhere, and bring food and parasites inside as well. In some cases, the contamination can be severe. We highly recommend attic cleaning and restoration if you've had raccoons above your ceiling.
Animal Proofing For Raccoons
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.
Once the bats and animals are excluded, we perform all the necessary proofing repairs to prevent the bats and other wildlife pest from returning. Bats can cause great damage to your attic and become a health hazard. Attic restoration or clean up of damaged insulation is highly recommended to get your attic to its correct condition.

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.
Many of Michigan's wild animals have learned to adapt and even thrive in our homes. For example some wildlife have found that attics make great places to live. Other animals find refuge under homes or porches. Invariably, these animals cause damage. Rodents, like squirrels and rats, love to chew on electrical wires once in an attic, and this causes a serious fire hazard. Raccoons can cause serious contamination in an attic with their droppings and parasites. Same goes for bat or bird colonies. We specialize in solving Michigan's wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, we do it all.
Animal Proofing For Raccoons
Catch and remove raccoons from attic. Michigan Wildlife Removal: Wildlife capture and removal is of course, an essential part of nuisance wildlife control. While most people appreciate nature, they do not always appreciate the destruction of property, disturbance of peace, or health risks that wild animals in and around the home cause. The goal of Michigan Wildlife Removal is to quickly and humanely eliminate the animals causing the problems. The goal is not to eliminate every animal in the neighborhood, just the target ones causing you the headaches. For example, if a raccoon is living in your chimney, Michigan Wildlife Removal will not set traps on the ground, which may catch any number of non-target raccoons or other animals. Michigan Wildlife Removal will go right for the target animals in the chimney.
