Raccoons Cause Real Concern in Oakland County, Michigan

Raccoon Problems are common in Oakland County, Michigan

When I returned home from a three month absence I found mounds of what I am told is raccoon feces, called raccoon latrines. I had my exterminator set a trap but my concern is who to call to remove the feces. I have searched my Yellow Pages and can\'t find any service that mentions this. My husband has a compromised immune system and I don\'t want him to do it. I would rather stab myself in the eye (just kidding) than do it myself. The Department of Health recommends wearing gloves and using disposable bags and putting it in the regular trash. Reading online suggestions they recommend wearing a special mask and burning the area where the latrines are. I am confused and frustrated. Barbara J.

I have a raccoon infestation in my house as well as in my adjacent neighbor\'s houses. I want to know more information on raccoon removal services, such as cost, time etc. Mandi L.

I saw a raccoon on my roof have been hearing noises in my chimney....assumed it was birds. Guess I was wrong! Alex M

My tenants have been hearing scratching in the attic and in the crawlspace below the house during both the day and nighttime for several weeks now.  They saw a raccoon in the yard a few days ago and think it\'s the intruder and that there may be more.  They need to be evicted before I lose my renters!

-Tania K.

I can hear something in my attic.  It sounds big, there\'s lots of creaking from the house and the occasional his from an animal.  I think it\'s a raccoon and possibly her babies.  I wouldn\'t want my kids in the attic let alone these things!

-Cami O.


Questions about Swallows


We have a large amount of swallows living on property in the eaves of our buildings. They have been there every year since the property was built. We have scheduled an exterior complete repaint of our apartment buildings. I do not want the birds to be harmed or disturbed. Can they be relocated? What are my options?


Swallows are federally protected because they are migratory birds, meaning once their nests are completed and contain eggs or baby birds, they cannot be moved or harmed.  The trick to managing swallows is starting deterrent methods as soon as they begin building nesting on a building.  As professional wildlife removers, we understand the laws and have developed safe ways to keep the birds from nesting on unwanted areas.  The best thing to do is to bring in someone that understands these things and can carefully modify the bird’s migration route to not include your home; if you don’t, they will come back year after year.


The Oakland County Animal Control Services of Michigan, MI

Lost pets, barking dogs, loose cats, cows, horses, goats, sheep, or other domestic, farm or ranch animal issues need to be reported to The Oakland County Animal Control Services: . They work with domestic animals and can provide information about licensing, vaccinations, lost pets, etc. Oakland County does not offer free wildlife animal control services, nor do cities within Oakland County.

We are professional wildlife removal contractors offering animal control solutions based in Michigan.We pride ourselves on our professional trapping services, and on quality snake, bird, and animal removal.

Platinum Wildlife Removal removes all sorts of wild animals and birds from residential and commercial properties, including bats, snakes, pigeons, skunks, raccoons, swallows, woodpeckers, voles, beavers, and rodents of every kind. Wild animals on your property can damage vegetation and structures and reduce property value. They also bring disease and a host of insect pests with them, which can adversely affect you, your family, and your pets. In your walls, in your attic, or on your roof wild animals can keep you up at night and their urine and droppings create a horrific smell. After my technicians and I perform wild animal removal, we can provide cleanup, sanitization, and deodorization to help restore your property; we can also provide exclusion services to keep your wildlife problem from recurring. Whether the problem is a colony of bats in a building, raccoons in the attic, or destructive behaviors of critters such as squirrels, gophers and pigeons, we can solve it.

We resolve many types of wildlife control conflicts in Oakland County and surrounding areas. Give me a call if you need expert animal removal and/or live wildlife trapping. We can also perform an inspection of your property to evaluate the problem.

The situations we resolve and main trapping and removal services we provide are: raccoon families in attics and chimneys, woodpeckers drilling siding. mud swallow nests on stucco, rats or squirrels thumping and bumping around inside walls and in attics, voles and gophers destroying lawns, skunks stealing pet food, bat infestations, and snakes living in crawlspaces and stone walls.

Along with physical damage and disease, wild animals also bring along disturbance and nuisance with all their commotion and smell. Raccoons and rats will fight all night and keep people awake; baby raccoons chirp and chitter like little birds; skunk smell takes the cake, but have you ever smelled a dead animal in your ventilation system? We have seen much, much more than these problems, but that is a general idea of the kinds of problems that I and my professional wildlife removal operators are prepared to solve.

Not only do my technicians and I trap and remove problem wild animals, we do a lot of other dirty work, too. Don’t hesitate to call us for dead animal removal, bat guano cleanup, pigeon waste removal, mouse dropping cleanup, decontamination, repairs, above ground and below ground rodent slick fencing, odor control for skunk spray, and the like. We are a full service pest control company with a wide range of animal control solutions.

For pigeon and bird control, bat removal, or relief from other pest animals, call our wildlife management experts. Many nuisance wildlife companies offer critter capture and control; our wildlife operators provide professional pest wild animal management. We remove the following AND MORE:

  • Raccoons from attics and chimneys
  • Bats from attics and eaves
  • Voles that dig and tear up lawns and destroy root systems
  • Pigeons from rooftops
  • Swallow nests from stucco, log siding, exterior walls and eaves

Pigeons have been a problem in Michigan since day one, but they’ve only recently become MY problem. I have about 12 that have found their way to my house and are ruining everything.  There’s poop everywhere and they coo all the time!  Help!

-Jennifer M.

The pigeons on my roof are ruining my HVAC system.  They’re pooping everywhere and making lots of noise.  Every time I look outside it seems like there are more than there were before.  I can’t let my cat outside or she comes back in with a dead pigeon in her mouth.  Can’t live with them anymore, help?
