Frequently Asked Questions About Michigan Wildlife Control
We capture animals in a live trap and then take them as far away as possible within the same county to relocate them to a safe habitat. We have private locations to take wildlife to. Animal capture and release is the most humane way to get rid of nuisance animals.
We are a private service for hire. Back in the day D.N.R. or county animal control would capture nuisance animals funded by the state. Now wildlife control is done by licensed wildlife control operators.
We can be found under the pest control category through searches, but we are actually considered a nuisance wildlife control company. We do carry a Pest control license in categories 7A and 7D, but that is strictly for the use of repellents and cleaning attics. We are not a pest control company, because we trap animals, prevent entry, and decontaminate attics. Pest control companies are trained to use poisons.
We do not operate as an insect control company and rarely go on calls for insect problems. We operate as a wildlife control company and get rid of nuisance wild animals, birds, and reptiles. Occasionally we seal up homes and screen vents for bees, wasps, and yellow jackets. We also knock down nests and carry organic insect spray on our trucks for safety. For a more in-depth insect pest control service see our good friends at Proof Pest Control.
NO! We are a poison-free company and only operate wildlife control in the most humane way. Poisoning animals or rodents creates more of a problem for the homeowner and pets.
We typically use live traps and exclusion devices for all jobs. Sometimes use snap traps for rodents to help control the population easier. This is the most humane way to take care of rodent problems.
We service all of Southeast, MI, and most surrounding areas. See our service area for our map of areas we commonly service.
We have been in business for over 20 years now and have completed thousands of live exclusions and animal control jobs throughout the state of Michigan
Yes, we are licensed by the D.N.R. to serve the state of Michigan as a wildlife control operator. License # RC 1019. Our pest control license for 7A (general pest control) and 7D (small vertebrae) is 630443.
We carry two million dollar liability insurance, workers comp insurance, and bond insurance.
Depends on the task at hand and what is considered expensive to you. Wildlife control is a specialized service that requires working in tough places, high on roofs, and in harsh conditions. Anytime dealing with wild animals we are at risk to be scratched or bitten. Some jobs may be very inexpensive, however, a lot of jobs can be priced high. See our pricing page for more information.
If you need financing we offer 60 months solutions to pay off your wildlife control project.
We are a wildlife control company and do not get rid of domestic animals or feral cats.
Pretty much any type of nuisance wildlife there is in Michigan. For animals, birds, and snakes we commonly get rid of see our wildlife services page.
A wildlife control specialist can get rid of your problem bird, animal, or snake in a humane controlled method. Most wildlife operators are not pest control techs and do not use poisons. When hiring an animal control company there are many things to consider.
Bird control is either residential or commercial. There are three ways to get rid of birds from your home, property, or commercial building.
- Physical deterrents: bird spikes, shock track, bird wire, etc.
- Visual deterrents: Flashers, shiny objects, predator statues, etc.
- Exclusion: Seal entry points, screen vents, and bird netting.

Our mice control programs are much different than most exterminators or pest control companies. We do not come to your home and lay poison baits all over them home. This technique is very lazy and can end up costing you more money in the long run. We offer a seasonal mouse program where we can set traps in your home, attic, garage, or basement. Our objective is to locate points of entry from the exterior of the home and inside the attic. We initially charge a home inspection and trap set fee. Price could range from $200-$300 depending on the location of your home and the difficulty of the job. Upon inspection of the home we strategically place traps in areas where the mice are nesting. Typically 7 to 10 days later, we will return to check all of the traps and make sure the outside repairs are in good standing. The cost of repairs on the home for mice prevention will vary from home to home depending on the steepness of the roof, lineal footage of caulking, number of repairs, etc. For a more detailed price click on the free quote button.
