Wayne County, Michigan is Full of Pigeons
Pigeons are thought to be a New York City kind of a thing, but here in Wayne County we see them more often than not.  Whether it be on billboards, apartments, baseball stadiums, or buildings, we see them all the time.  They’re common enough that you’ll often find bird spikes on roofs, windowsills, and railings.  In cases when the sneaky birds get around these preventative measures they cause havoc, and the people in Wayne County want them gone!


I don\'t know how many gophers are living in my yard, but they have dug holes all over the place. I am pretty sure they are going back and forth between my yard and my neighbor’s. I tried to fill their holes with water - I left the hose on and running down one of their holes for FOUR HOURS, and it didn\'t fill it! I don’t know the extent of their tunnels, but it’s obviously too big of a problem for me to deal with on my own. 

It’s not uncommon to have gopher problems, especially if your home backs up to any kind of open landscape like fields, parks, hillsides, etc.  The problem is when you don’t take care of it as soon as you identify what is happening.  Gopher problems that are left unattended can cause such a vast map of underground tunneling that a person’s foot could break through the ground and expose the damage and possible injure themselves.  Not to mention that gophers are a rodent, and once they’ve found a good place to settle they won’t leave on their own.  Watch carefully for the gopher’s signature mounding in your yard, and once you’ve identified it, get someone to take care of it as soon as you can.

The Wayne 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 Wayne County Animal Control Services: . They work with domestic animals and can provide information about licensing, vaccinations, lost pets, etc. Wayne County does not offer free wildlife animal control services, nor do cities within Wayne 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 Wayne 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
  • Mice from walls, attics, basements, crawlspaces, etc.
  • Gophers and moles that damage gardens and golf courses
  • Skunks that damage gardens and make dens under porches and in crawlspaces
  • Feral cats from neighborhoods and parks
  • Rats and squirrels from attics, flower gardens, yards, commercial and industrial property
  • Beavers from lakes, ponds and rivers

It Seems That Everyone Smells Skunk in Wayne County, Michigan Skunks regularly enter neighborhoods in Wayne County, Michigan. ¨I have a skunk problem. There was an opening to the crawl space of my house. This skunk came along and somehow pulled boards away from the side to make the hole bigger. I guess she liked what she saw, because now she and her 2 babies are living in the crawl space. It stinks.

I think I have a skunk or two living under my deck. Last weekend around 8:45 pm I saw there was one in my backyard heading toward my deck. I quickly went back inside and didnt see where it went. A week later my neighbor also saw one in his yard and said he saw it go under my fence into my yard. I noticed a hole dug on the side of my deck and there is a lingering smell. David S.

Much to my surprise, I ran into a live skunk in my side yard. We both went opposite directions, and no harm was done. Now, this past weekend, I found and extricated a dead (and partially decomposed) skunk from under my deck. It was a disgusting job. The area is very difficult to get to, since the deck is low and was not designed to be disassembled. The smell hasnt really made it inside, but outside is pretty bad, and not getting better since the animal was removed. Maybe there is another skunk, but I have not see evidence of one. Now I need your advice: What do I do with the dead skunk? Put it in the garbage? (Its currently tripled-bagged in the side yard.) Is there anything that I can do to get rid of the smell under and around the deck? In addition to being low to the ground, there are a lot of leaves and junk under there which seem hold the odor. Toni W.

I have skunks living under my house.  It’s a nightmare.  My house smells, my property smells, even I’m starting to smell.  I’ve tried to make loud noise and scare them off but they spray.  I need someone to get them off of my property.  I can’t keep smelling like skunk forever.
-Maddie G

There’s a hole dug outside the wall of my barn.  It doesn’t go deep but it goes back.  I think I have a family of skunks nesting down there.  The hole smells like skunk and I’ve seen skunks in the yard before.  In need of someone who can get everything out and moved somewhere else.
