Squirrel Removal and Getting Rid of Squirrels From Attics in Michigan

Red Squirrel trapped behind barsThere are different types of squirrels in Michigan. Red squirrel, fox squirrel, gray squirrel, black squirrel, chipmunk, and flying squirrel.  Most squirrels are diurnal but the flying squirrel is nocturnal.  They fly through the trees at night so they can avoid hawks, eagles, and other flying predators.  Squirrels feast on pine cones, bird seed, egg corns, walnuts, and during Halloween pumpkins. They like to gnaw on treated wood because of the salt in the wood. They live primerly in trees and underground. They make nesting material out of leaves and sticks.

Nuisance Problems: Squirrels will live in soffits and attics.  They bring hazardous material into your attic.  Worst of all they chew on power lines and electrical wires in your attic.  They are often herd in the attic running around, jumping truss to truss, and dropping nuts and pine cones.  Squirrels have many babies who will stay in the nest and remain to living there. We have found up to 15 squirrels living in one attic.

Problem Solvers: Trapping and relocating is the one measure, but a live exclusion, or multi-catch traps are also very effective. We sometimes have to set multiple traps to remove the whole nest of squirrels.  Red squirrels are the most common squirrel removed from the attic. If you find squirrels or chipmunks chewing on wood or weather strips on garage doors, some pepper spray on those areas works wonders.  To keep squirrels off bird feeders we use metal flashing around the poles so they can't grip on. For more information on getting rid of squirrels out of the attic and removal techniques visit our squirrels in the attic page.  

Our Most Recent Squirrel Removal Job/Story in Michigan
We were called out to a Linden Home for mice control. Upon inspection it ended up to flying squirrels and not mice.  We set 4 traps in the attic and were able to remove 3 squirrels. Once we got the squirrels out we fixed all the entry point to prevent it from happening again.

Exclusions we may charge to install the one way squirrel door and provide an estimate to proof the entire home. Charging for squirrel trapping is much like trapping opossums, raccoon"s, or skunks.  We charge a set up fee/inspection to come out to your home to survey the property and strategically set traps. Depending on the location of your home you may expect to pay an inspection fee of $90-$125. Typically for squirrels we charge a per animal cost or we may charge a per trip charge. If there is a litter we will charge for the entire litter removed, not per baby removed. Per animal cost could be anywhere from $60-$100 depending on the placement of the traps and location of your property. Trip charges depend on the location of your property. This is one method we use for squirrels. This cost is usually cheaper than the initial service call. Because there are typically large families of squirrels we set multiple traps at once and charge for the visit not for each captured squirrel.  At an added cost once the squirrels are trapped and removed we can also screen vents, cap chimneys, fix canned vents, eaves, etc. to keep them from returning. This is also part of our exclusion process. For free detailed quote click on the free price quote button.
