Wildlife Extermination

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.

Trapping Squirrels

Bats are excluded from your home or attic through a live exclusion process. This is done by bat proofing your home with screen, caulking, caps, etc. Also a one-way trap door is installed at the entry point so the bats can get out but not get back in. We are not exterminators or a bat pest control company. We strictly and proudly only use poison free bat control methods. When thinking of exterminator or pest control company we urge you to think of the humane method for bat removal. Bats are protected both federally and in the state of Michigan. No ultrasonic, high frequency device, or bat repellent will get rid of your bats nor keep them out. Moth balls or "bat away" never works. In fact it is harmful to have in your attic or home. FTC gives a warning on the use of ultrasonic pest control devices. For more information check out our "How to Get Rid of Bats" Page.

Squirrel Trap

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.

How To Get Rid Of Squirrels In Attic

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.

How to remove skunks from backyard - Removing skunks from the backyard means modifying your property so that skunks don't find it appealing. This process can be long and involved if you have an extensive yard, and some people find that their current landscaping is a part of the problem. Remember that skunks are drawn to your house because of food or shelter. There are no other reasons why wild animals like to invade the spaces of people. Either you're offering too much in the way of edible items, or there are lots of buildings and areas for skunks to make dens. Either way, you need to take the appropriate steps to remedy the situation. First, if you have a lot of buildings on your property, make sure they are secured around the base. This might mean installing a metal barrier around wooden walls or placing cinderblocks at the bottom of modular sheds. If the skunk can't get inside, it won't try for too long. The next step will be to adjust what you're doing about edible debris. A vegetable garden may not be the skunk's favorite food, but it will go in there to eat if there isn't a fence. The same can be said for fruit trees around the home. Fallen apples might not seem like something a skunk would eat routinely, but this is a free food item that won't be passed up. Keep your fruit trees picked up to prevent unwanted wildlife.

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".
