Ann Arbor MI Wildlife Control 48104

Serving the area of Ann Arbor Michigan For Animal Control


Ann Arbor MI wildlife trapping – it’s not as simple as it may seem. It’s illegal in Ann Arbor to remove animals without a license. Trap type is very important and there are many different types, bait is somewhat relevant, trap placement is vital, and there are dozens of small things that are very important to know. Safety is a concern. Then once the rat is trapped, it must be removed and dealt with in the proper manner according to Michigan law. We offer Ann Arbor Michigan wildlife removal. Read more about how to get rid of problem rats.

Squirrel Removal will find the squirrel entry point into the attic and then all open holes and vulnerable areas need to be sealed shut with a material that squirrels can’t chew through, such as steel sheeting or mesh. Bright lights placed under buildings may serve a similar function. Wire-mesh, live traps (Tomahawk®, Havahart®) are available for trapping rats. A raccoon will often just move to another, less offensive part of the attic. You absolutely do not want to remove the bats during the maternity season, when there are young, flightless bats in the attic.

Professional Ann Arbor MI Raccoon Control Service

Animals in attics – this is our specialty with Ann Arbor MI pest control service. Many types of squirrels like to live in attics. This includes squirrels, raccoons, rats, mice, bats, birds, and even possums. Animals like to go into attics for a safe place to live and raise their babies. Removing raccoons from attics is very complex work, partly because of the presence of baby raccoons. If you need Ann Arbor MI squirrel control, we can remove all the critters from your attic, and seal out any future ones. Read more about how to remove wildlife.

A wildlife specialist will use proper tools and sanitizing products to fog or spray your attic. Are you able and willing to do so? It is not legal, in almost all states, to trap a raccoon, stick it in the trunk of your car, drive it off to the woods, and release it. Click for more info on raccoons in the chimney. Even if they don’t get into the your house or fireplace, you will cook animals alive and get a horrendous odor that will last a long time.

Professional Ann Arbor MI Rat Removal Service

Rodent trapping must be done in a very specific way. First off, the most important thing is that all the openings that rats can use to enter a structure be sealed. Then all the rats must be physically trapped and removed. Never, ever use poison! Most Ann Arbor MI exterminators will just use this lazy poison technique to kill rats, and it causes more harm than good – dead stinky mice, and it doesn’t solve the problem. Call us for correct rat removal. Read more about how to remove rats.

Professional Ann Arbor MI Bat Removal Company

Bat removal is a highly specialized task. Michigan is known to have colonizing bats who often live in attics. Bats love attics. If not removed, the colony can grow to a very large size over the years. The bat droppings are often corrosive and cause health risks. The same goes for bird droppings on or in buildings. We perform pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is bat removal. We remove 100% of the bat colony and seal the buildings so that it’s totally bat-proof.

While poison can be very effective in getting rid of any bats in your home that actually eat the poison (bats feed off live insects so nibbling on a block of poison is unlikely) it is one of the worst choices. Though in very few cases symptoms are seen immediately, in many instances it is not recognizable for even months. These cases usually result in death. This is why you need to make your search in places where it could be in the dark as the sun shines into your living room, bedroom, or attic. They can live up to 30 years apparently, though average lifespan in the wild may be about 7 years. Their outdoor flying pattern when feeding is a very erratic pattern, usually darting back and forth and making quick direction changes.

Humane Animal Exclusion Services in Ann Arbor MI

If you have animals inside a house, no job is complete without proper exclusion repairs. If you simply hire a Ann Arbor MI trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a rat trapping company that identifies 100% of the animal entry points into your structure, and seals them shut with professional wildlife damage repairs. In addition, in many cases animals have left waste or contamination behind, and you’ll want a company that can provide professional cleaning services. Platinum Wildlife Removal does both.

Clean the area, getting rid of all feces, and spray with enzyme cleaner. Several striped skunk repellent products are available commercially including coyote urine, mothballs, ammonia, and pepper spray. I’ve never had a skunk spray inside one of these traps.

Should all the gable vents and attic fan vents be secured with the proper screening and the squirrels are still entering a home, then odds are they have chewed a hole in the fascia or soffit area of the home. So! You have a squirrel (or multiple squirrels) in the attic of your home. Do Repellents Work? In some cases. Listening for scratching is a great tactic. The grey squirrel is one of the United States most common wildlife pests.
