Any animals trapped will be relocated within the county removed to prevent the spread of diseases. All animals are relocated at a safe distance to prevent the animals return. Animal trapping requires some skill, patience and experience. There are some things you must know when trying to trap nuisance animals from your home. Its not as simple as buying a live trap and filling it full of bait, then waiting for the animal to enter the trap. We take pride in catching all of your nuisance animals in a timely fashion but sometimes it does take patients. We always go for the target animal and never charge for non-targeted animals. Trapping requires some knowledge to catch the wanted critters from their disturbance areas. Here are some things to know about trapping...
- Know exactly what you are trying to trap
- Know the area where the animal is living
- Weather can play a factor in trapping
- Know the food source of the animal
- Look for alternative food sources
How Animal Trapping Works
We don't assume what we are trying to trap. We investigate every situation, looking for clawing , chewing, and size of opening. Its real important to know where the animal is entering, exiting and living. For instance if we have raccoons in the attic we don't want to set the traps on the ground because we can catch every raccoon in the neighborhood. Find the opening and place the trap on the roof. If our trap gets wet, we make sure we constantly rebait with fresh food or lure.
All species can be attracted to the same baits so we make sure we pick the most appropriate food or lure to bait the animal into the trap. If there are alternative food sources around where the target animal is living, we make sure we use the best baits to steer them from their other food. Gland lures and fresh sweet baits always work the best. Patience is key with trapping. We hope to get our target animal within 24 hours but that isn't always the case. Depending on the eating pattern of the critter they may not always be hungry every night therefore they won' t go right into the trap.
How Much Does Animal Trapping Cost?
Animal trapping is a specialty services. For animal trapping 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 around $150-$195. Thereafter we may charge a per animal cost. For most animals we may charge a per trip charge. Per animal cost could be around $100-$150 depending on the placement of the traps and location of your property.
We have found the most efficient way to charge for animal trappings is a flat rate charge. This way you know upfront how much it will cost you to get rid of the nuisance animal. Our flat rate charge may be, $250-$500 depending the the type of animal. Of course with any animal trapping service it is important to repair the entry point. This is an added cost.

Michigan Wildlife We Trap and Relocate
In Michigan we come encounter with many types of bat removal jobs. Bat control, bat extermination, bat pest control are our specialties in Michigan. We service many types of residential and commercial buildings. Residential homes ranging from ranches, colonial, bungalow, gable style, log cabins and many more. Some commercial properties we have got rid of bats in are churches and a commercial building with office spaces.
Beavers in Michigan can be a nuisance to humans, properties, forestry, and farmlands. Beavers create dams in Michigan properties near rivers and lakes. It is important to capture all nuisance beavers by trapping either using a leg hold method or into a live trap. Beavers will chew down your trees creating great damage. Often there are floods along the banks of rivers and lakes and even into your yard. Floods into the Michigan homes have sometimes come from the dams of beavers. Beavers are considered the largest rodent in North America. They live in aquatic environments and build there dams (living areas) out of logs, sticks and whatever else they can find. They have large teeth and use them to saw down trees and branches.
Birds in Michigan can sometimes cause more damage than any nuisance wild animal. There nest are filled with bacteria and fungi. There are several diseases associated with bird nest material. Just like with bat guano you can contract histopoplasmosis when inhaling the airborne spores of the nest. The birds we generally deal with that give problems to homeowners and industrial buildings are pigeons, chimney swifts, starlings, sparrows, swallows and wood peckers.
Coyotes in Michigan are from the canid family and generally live in dens created with leaves, sticks, and other materials. Coyotes are carnivorous and prey on rabbits, squirrels, chipmunks, chickens and other small animals. Coyotes will prey on larger animals like deer in packs. If there is no food present coyotes will scavenge on dead animals.
Just like coyotes, Fox in Michigan are from the canine family. They live in dens usually left open from other wild animals. Fox are predators and prey on chickens, rabbits, squirrels, chipmunks, and other small animals. 2 types of fox in Michigan are usually spotted, the grey and red fox.
In Michigan we take care of nuisance groundhogs or woodchucks. You will find groundhogs in open plains or digging holes and living underground. Groundhogs in Michigan are found living under decks, in rock walls, and in hills. Groundhogs have rounded claws used for digging. Groundhogs are vegetarians and eat plants, grass, flowers, and other vegetation.
Poison Free Mice Control
The most common problem we deal with in Michigan are field mice. Mice are mainly nocturnal rodents but can also be found during the day. Mice love to live underneath insulation and burrow tunnels through out your attic. Mice can fit through 1/4" holes making construction gaps on your roof gateways to your attic.
In Michigan Opossums are the only marsupial, meaning they have a pouch that they carry their young in. They have long prehensile tails which gives them another limb to use for hanging. Opossums are usually found under decks and in sheds. We sometimes find them in attics but that isn't generally the case here in Michigan. They need a decent size opening to enter into the attic.
In Michigan we offer wild animal control services such as how to Get Rid of Raccoon's: Raccoon Removal, raccoon control, and raccoon damage control; including attic decontamination and insulation removal.
Have you been hearing scratching sounds, loud banging or walking around in the walls or attic of your home or business in Michigan? If so, you may have a raccoon problem!
Skunks in Michigan are recognizable with their black and white stripes. Generally skunks live under deck and porches. Skunks also dig holes and create dens underground. Skunks feast on grubs and other insects below your soil. Also skunks get into garbage's scavenging for food. Skunks are near sighted animals and use their sense of smell to maneuver around. Skunks will spray an unbearable odor out their anus up to 10 feet if they feel threatened. A warning sign skunks feel threatened is by stopping their feet and raise their tail. If this happens, back away slowly.
There 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 mostly in trees and underground. They make nesting material out of leaves and sticks.
