How We Solve Macomb County Wildlife Problems
It starts with your phone call. We answer our phones 24/7, and we will carefully listen to your wildlife problem. Every case is different, so we will ask appropriate questions to help
us understand the situation better. Questions like, "do you hear the noises at night or during the daytime?" or "what type of roof do you have?" After we have a general idea of your
situation, we can provide a ballpark price range, and schedule a same-day or next-day appointment to inspect your property.
INSPECTION: Once on site, we will perform a full inspection of your home and property. This allows us to use the correct strategy and
traps. If the animals are in an attic, a full building inspection is crucial, including the following:
- All ground-level areas, such as piper or A/C line entry & exit areas, A/C chase bottoms, ground-level vents, etc.
- All mid-level areas, such as dryer vents, siding gaps, first floor eaves or dormers, etc.
- We inspect the entire roof, including all plumbing stacks, ridge caps, vents, and other potential gaps or holes.
- We also inspect inside your attic, to identify animals and damage they have caused.
- If the animals are outside, we notice many subtle clues that will assist us in a successful strategy.
TRAPPING, EXCLUSION, REMOVAL: Once we understand what animal species we are dealing with, and the problem, we use the most effective means of removing the animals. We use dozens of different types of traps.
- Trapping - If trapping the animal(s) in live cage traps, trap type, set, and location are crucial to success.
- Exclusion - Oftentimes, we are able to simply set one-way doors or other exclusion devices that allow the animals inside a building to safely exit, but never get back inside.
- Removal By Hand - Sometimes we actually remove animals by hand, or with special tools like snare poles.
- The Law - In all cases, we obey state and local laws regarding wildlife, but aim to take the most humane approach.
ENTRY HOLE REPAIRS: Repairs are a crucial step in the wildlife removal process. In many cases, such as bat or rodent control, the job cannot be performed without detailed repairs, and in
all cases, sealing the entry holes shut ensures that no future wildlife will ever enter your home.
- 100% of the entry holes must be found, and sealed shut, or the job is not complete.
- Our repairs are professional contractor grade, look good, and when applicable we use steel, which rodents such as rats or squirrels are unable to chew through.
- We give a written guarantee on our repairs against any future animal entry.
ATTIC DECONTAMINATION SERVICES: It may be desirable to clean your attic after we've removed the animals. They can leave behind large amounts of droppings,
urine, hair, oils, food, nesting material, and so on. These remnants can attract insects like cockroaches, and the scent left behind can encourage new animals to chew their way into your
house. You might experience odor problems from the waste. It's possible that mold will grow on waste areas.
- We remove or vacuum all droppings, or remove all the soiled insulation.
- We fog the attic with a special enzyme-based cleaner that destroys any organic matter and deodorizes the space.
- We repair damage, such as ductwork, electrical wires, pipes, insulation, and more.
The above are just a brief explanation of some of our methods. I haven't even addressed the hundreds of other potential cases that we deal with, from bat exclusions, to poison-free rodent control, to dead animal removal, bird roosting
prevention, mole trapping in a yard, ground-based exclusion barriers around a shed, etc. etc. Just give us a call any time, and we can describe in detail how we will resolve your specific wildlife problem.
Have you been hearing movement in your attic? If you answered yes, give us a call. You could
have a wild life critter (such as squirrels or bats), or even a whole family of them living in your attic! These
critters not only ruin your home by making holes to enter and leave, but they are also putting your families health
and well being at risk. Squirrels and bats are known to cause major illness due to the bacteria in their droppings.
Our company takes pride in our removal and prevention process. Let us help keep your family and home safe this season!

This month's wildlife how-to article: How to get mice out of the attic
How to get mice out of the attic
Mice or rats are among the classic house, building, and agricultural pests that people have been battling
since history. They are considered pests because they eat and destroy food sources and contaminate and water
ways. They can also serve as agents of diseases like leptospirosis, diarrhea, rabies, and among other things.
Where do mice or rats live?
Mice or rats can survive anywhere – as long as they can have access to foods. One of the most common
parts of the house where they can thrive is the attic.
Reasons why mice live in the attic
There are several reasons why mice prefer the attic of the house to live. Among these reasons include:
• Attic is a secluded and often disturbed.
• It is a darker place where they can hide. They can live in there without being noticed by household owner.
• Attic is a spacious place where they can store foods and give birth to young pups.
How can you tell if there are rats in your attic?
• There are visible rats feces (small black excrements with faulty odor) all over the place.
• You can find gnawed particles (cardboards, left over foods, paper, etc.) spread in the attic.
• Possible nesting and small pups.
• Faulty smell of rat urine all over the attic.
• Possible gnawed wiring in the area.
Getting rid of mice from the attic
There are several ways to get ride of mice in your attic – and from anywhere in your house. Among these steps include the following:
Keep your house clean.
Rats love clutter – in the attic, basement, bathroom, kitchen, and closets. When you clean up your house, make sure that
all unnecessary clutters are disposed properly. Spray a deodorizer all over the place after cleaning to get rid of faulty smell that can attract
rats and mice. Also, avoid leaving foods unattended in the house.
Install mice or rattraps
When problems about mice keep on going, you can decide to install rattraps. Just make sure that you visit the trap
every now and then to avoid rats from dying and rotting in your attic.
Using rat poison.
Aside from rattraps, you can also put commercial rat poisons in the attic where rats thrive. Make
sure that you remove the poison after a rat has eaten them to keep the animals from rotting in the attic and filling
your house with faulty smell.
Call professional pest control.
When things ran out of control and home remedies are no longer taking effect, it
is now time for you to call a professional pest control to address the problem.
