If you have a problem with wildlife in your Saline home, your best option is to hire a company that specializes in Michigan wildlife removal only. This is a specialty business, and regular pest control companies do not use the proper techniques to solve animal problems. I have spent many years reviewing Michigan and Saline, and I recommend the following:
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Washtenaw County Animal Services: (734) 461-0545
Frank's Wildlife Removal specializes primarily in removing animals from attics of homes and buildings - this includes squirrels in attics, raccoons, and rats or mice in homes. Michigan also has a documented problem with
bats in buildings, and Frank's Wildlife Removal is specially trained in bat removal. They also perform general wildlife trapping services, such as the capture and removal of skunks or opossums on the
property. Call 734-418-4035 to discuss your critter problem and schedule a same-day or next-day appointment. Click here to learn more about what prices we charge in 2020.
When hiring a company to solve your wild animal problem, you want these features:
Frank's Wildlife Removal is a full-service Saline wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Saline pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all
similar to wildlife removal. Frank's Wildlife Removal performs a full inspection of the home or property, and determines why the animal(s) are there, and if inside a building, how the animals got inside. All
animals (including rodents) are trapped and removed, or if possible, removed from the building using special exclusion devices. Once the animals are gone, preventative repairs are essential, and
cleanup is sometimes recommended.
Saline wildlife trapping - it's not as simple as it may seem. It's illegal in Michigan to trap 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 animal is trapped, it must be removed and dealt with in the proper manner according to Michigan law. We offer Saline raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
Animals in attics - this is our specialty at Frank's Wildlife Removal. Many types of animals like to live in attics. This includes squirrels, raccoons, rats, mice, bats, birds, and even possums. Critters like to go into attics for a safe place to live and raise their young. Removing animals from attics is very complex work, partly because of the presence of baby animals. If you need Saline squirrel removal, we can remove all the squirrels from your attic, and seal out any future ones. Read more about how to get rid of squirrels.
Rodent control must be done in a very specific way. First off, the most important thing is that all the openings that rats and mice can use to enter a house be sealed. Then all the rodents must be physically trapped and removed. Never, ever use poison! Most Saline exterminators will just use this lazy poison technique to kill rodents, and it causes more harm than good - dead stinky rats, and it doesn't solve the problem. Call us for correct Saline rat removal. Read more about how to get rid of rats.
Bat removal is a highly specialized task. Michigan is known to have colonizing bats who often live in buildings. 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 Saline pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Saline bat removal. We remove 100% of the bat colony and seal the building so that it's totally bat-proof. Read more about how to get rid of bats.
If you have animals inside a house, no job is complete without proper exclusion repairs. If you simply hire a Saline trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Saline wildlife control company that identifies 100% of the animal entry points into your building, and seals them shut with professional 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. Frank's Wildlife Removal does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by Frank's Wildlife Removal. We also trap and remove animals that destroy lawns, such as moles, or digging animals. Sometimes animals like opossums will live under buildings, steal pet food, raid garbage cans, etc. Read about how to get rid of opossums. Skunks commonly live under sheds or decks, and set up a den. We can trap and remove them without them spraying. Read about how to get rid of skunks. Frank's Wildlife Removal also provides dead animal removal in Saline. If you need help with any other wildlife conflict, from a fox, beaver, groundhog, or any other critter, we can solve it. We also do Saline snake removal - most of the snakes in Michigan are not venomous, but call us if you want safe removal, or read about how to get rid of snakes in Saline. And remember, we are a private business, not Washtenaw County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at (734) 461-0545. Washtenaw County animal services does not handle any wildlife issues.
Every wildlife removal situation is different, from the species of animals involved, the location of the animal inside a house or outside, the extent of repairs or cleanup, etc. It's impossible to give one-size-fits-all prices. Examples MIGHT include:
Small Job: For example, a one-stop job to remove an animal in the yard: $100 on up
Medium Job: For example, getting critters out of your house with minor repairs: $300 on up
Large Job: For example, a project involving many service trips and complex work: $500 on up
Give us a phone call now and tell us about your wildlife issue and we will be able to give you a price estimate over the phone. If you're cool with it, we can schedule a same-day or next-day appointment if you like. Our prices are fair, and a good value because we do the job right, the first time.
Saline Wildlife Tip #1:
What is the price for nuisance wildlife removal? - Having a wild animal in your home or on your property is going to be a stressful situation, especially if you have other pets or kids to think about, and the last thing that you are going to want to have to concern yourself with is the cost of having the creature removed professionally, especially if you are already on a budget. That's the thing about wildlife control experts - different companies and even different individuals will often charge completely different prices, and it can be hard to know where to begin, or what the best approach for hiring one is to take. One thing that it is very important to remember is that a higher price won't always mean a better service. At the same time, the cheapest quote may seem like a good idea, but are you really going to get everything that you expect from the people or person that you are using? Rather than focusing all of your attentions on the prices that these people have to offer, you should rather look at the services that they promise to you, as well as testimonials from other clients, happy or otherwise, that would suggest whether or not they do their job well. There are a few things that you will want to look out for when hiring a wildlife control expert to remove the nuisance wildlife or other wild animal from your home. For example, as well as safely removing the creature from your land in a humane manner, you will want to make sure that the creature is being relocated in the best place possible. You are also going to want make sure that the expert educates you on how to avoid further problems with nuisance wildlife and other wild animals, and this could mean the professional(s) blocking up holes that could be used as entrances by the animals. You should also ask whether or not they remove feces and urine, especially if you are not keen on doing this particular task yourself!
Saline Wildlife Tip #2:
Ways To Prevent Wild animals Under House - There are many areas of the country that have many properties with crawlspaces and cavities underneath, and if these are left unprotected they can often make for a welcoming potential home for an wild animal. These cavities provide shelter from the elements and are also very dark during the day which allows the wild animal to sleep. Unfortunately, having an wild animal in such close proximity to your home means that they will often be hunting for food in your yard or garden first, and the digging and burrowing under the property can also cause other types of damage too. In terms of stopping all this from happening, one of the best ways is to seal off any access to the area under the house. If this is a cavity that has been incorporated into the design then using a solid wire fence is a good solution, and some of these products will also include a gate access for maintenance purposes. However, if the space under the property is simply a large hole that has been dug out previously, then the best approach is to fill this in and repair it so that it isn't just filled in with loose soil that would be easy to dig for an wild animal.
Michigan Wildlife Information:
Michigan State bird: American robin
State mammal: White-tailed deer
State reptile: Painted turtle
State fish: Brook trout
Michigan is a state that tends to get bombarded with snow and storms due to its location in the arms of the Great Lakes. The state is also relatively flat, though it has a nice mix of grassland and forest and some moderate hills. Pine trees are numerous in this part of the country, and they provide shelter for the plentiful animals that must survive a long, cold winter. Most of the state experiences a short, warm summer, but it is often filled with storms coming in off the bordering lakes. Due to the long winters and the cooler overall temperatures, most of the animals in this state are ones that are comfortable surviving in poor conditions when food is covered by feet of snow.
Michigan is densely populated in the regions along the Great Lakes, but it offers a fair share of wilderness areas as well. In these sparsely populated zones you will find large grazing animals like elk, mule deer, and white-tailed deer. These herbivores ultimately draw in predators like cougars, wolves, coyotes, and bears. It's not common for bears to prey on the young of large grazers, but if food is scarce the bears can be agile, dangerous hunters. Such large creatures are not usually the concern of homeowners, even those in rural settings. Wolves and coyotes can be dangerous during seasons when food is limited. Some coyotes will adapt to urban settings. These canines are considered significantly more dangerous than coyotes in the wild. An urban coyote will not hesitate to scale a fence with the purpose of attacking a house pet.
Large animals, though they can be pests, are not as troublesome as smaller creatures like raccoons and skunks. There are a number of animals that will invade a home. Raccoons, opossums, squirrels, rats, and mice are the most frequent offenders. In Michigan, there are also Indiana bats. These small bats are very rare and disturbing one of their roosts-even if it's in your own home-is illegal.
Aquatic animals are also found in this state. River otters are very common, along with beavers and muskrats. Michigan has the water shrew, too, a large semi-aquatic rodent that is active at night near streams and lakes, and only has a lifespan of about 18 months.
