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.

We handle every aspect of wildlife control. We are fully equipped to work on any project, large or small. Some of our services include:

We do not handle dog or cat problems. If you need assistance with a domestic animal, such as a dog or a cat, you need to call your local Kalamazoo county animal services for assistance. They can help you out with issues such as stray dogs, stray cats, spay & neuter programs, vaccinations, licenses, pet adoption, bite reports, deceased pets, lost pets, local animal complaints and to report neglected or abused animals. There is no free Kalamazoo animal control for wildlife issues.

Kalamazoo Wildlife Removal Tip: Where Should I Relocate A Trapped Squirrel?

Relocation is one of the favored methods of dealing with a squirrel once it has been trapped, but there are many pitfalls that can cause the animal to either become a problem to someone else or find itself in an area where it cannot survive. It is worth checking before you begin that it is legal to relocate a squirrel in your state, or if there are particular regulations about who can relocate a squirrel and if permission is required from the landowner where the release will take place. You should also try and carry out the relocation as quickly as possible to ensure the squirrel suffers the minimum distress during the relocation.

The Appropriate Surroundings For Relocating A Squirrel

The ideal place to relocate a squirrel will be in a rural area that is well away from any other domestic properties, which helps to ensure that the animal doesn't become a problem for other householders. The best areas for squirrels are those that have a fair sized woodland which will allow the animal to return to its natural habitat, and will usually provide a good range of food sources. While it is difficult to find a location where you can guarantee the animal will survive, choosing a location that meets this criteria will at least give the squirrel a chance of surviving in their new surroundings.

How Far Away Should You Relocate The Squirrel?

The recommended distance that is usually quoted when relocating animals is at least ten miles, as most animals will show a natural instinct to want to return to their previous habitat which was favorable for them. If there is a good habitat slightly less than ten miles away, then that can be appropriate, but in most cases it will be worth the extra journey so that you can be even more confident that the animal won't be able to return.

Transporting And Releasing The Squirrel

If possible, a flat bed truck will be the best vehicle for transporting the squirrel, as if it does spray urine or defecate then at least it will not have done so in the cabin of a vehicle. However, not everyone will have this kind of vehicle, so a good alternative is to wrap the cage in a blanket, and then to place it in the trunk. Once you have reached your release spot, try to avoid any direct contact with the squirrel, open the door to the trap and quickly take a step back.

What Prices Do We Charge?
Every job is different: the type of animals involved, is it in the attic or the yard, do you need repairs, etc. It's impossible to have set pricing in this industry. Examples MIGHT include:
Small Job: Like a one-stop job to remove an animal in the yard: $100 on up
Medium Job: Like to get critters out of your house with minor repairs: $300 on up
Large Job: A project involving many service trips and complex work: $500 on up
