Bats in Berrien County, MI

Bats can be a bigger problem than most people realize.  One of the reasons why is because they don\'t always see the hidden problem.  Often times, when you see a bat, it\'s not just one bat.  You might be okay with one bat living in your attic, but what about the hundred plus that are living with it? Small bat problems can quickly escalate into large, hazardous problems. 

At a home in Berrien County we found what we consider to be the most extreme bat problem that we had ever seen during our time as trappers.  We were called in by a young man that had recently been out to visit his grandmother, but couldn\'t set foot in the house.  From the second he pulled into the driveway, he could smell something horrible; and when she opened the door it only got worse.

Since his grandmother was very old and confined to the first floor, she couldn\'t go upstairs to clean whatever was making the terrible smell and so she could do nothing but let it build up.  He immediately got her out of the house and called us for emergency services.  And what we found was nothing short of an emergency.

A colony of bats that exceeded 1,000 bats had been nesting in her attic for years and over the years, the mess had just built up.  When we went up to the attic to begin treatment, we couldn\'t even open the door.  A pile of guano, 2-3 feet high, had built up on the attic floor, blocking off the entrance and causing a serious health hazard.  Not only that, but the guano had also caused serious damage to the floor.  Several spots were rotting through to the rooms below.  This ceiling was caving in; knowing this and seeing the hundreds, even thousands of bats living in the attic, we left the scene.

The home was so contaminated that we had to evacuate the woman and her things and condemn the house. Though this infestation wasn\'t her fault, it was still a very dangerous situation that many people find themselves in.

If you find your home infested with bats, rodents, or any other kind of critters, don\'t let it get out of hand.  Feel free to call the number at the top of this screen and we will do our best to help you get a handle on your situation.  Whatever it is.

The Berrien 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 Berrien County Animal Control Services: . They work with domestic animals and can provide information about licensing, vaccinations, lost pets, etc. Berrien County does not offer free wildlife animal control services, nor do cities within Berrien 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.

Awesome Critter Getter 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 Berrien 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.

Wildlife Problems in Berrien County, MI

With all of the wildlife in Michigan, it’s no wonder that the residents of Berrien County have so many wildlife problems.  The trappers in the city also have to have a wide range of experience and equipment to remove all of these animals successfully.  When it comes to trapping wildlife, it’s best to have a professional on your side to ensure the best results.

Below are a few examples of wildlife problems that locals of Berrien County have had recently.


I’ve got a huge problem with groundhogs..  Every spring they come into my yard and tear up the grass, dig holes everywhere, and eat my garden.  I thought they would leave after the first year but they come EVERY SINGLE YEAR. It’s exhausting to work so hard to grow my garden and all of the plants and then have these animals come and dig it all up and eat it! I am going crazy, I need someone to get these marmots away from my house and out of my yard.


We recently purchased our first home and shortly after moving in heard birds in our chimney. They were just cleaned so we know they weren\'t here before that. Being animal people, we figured they would make their nest and babies would hatch and they all would fly out and we\'d clean everything then. I had no idea that they were sparrows until I saw then fly in one day, now I\'m pretty sure. It\'s been weeks now and I don\'t understand why they are all still there and haven\'t flown out. Now I can smell the odor in the basement and I\'m very scared. We have animals and obviously we don\'t want to get sick. My husband just wants to open the flue (they nested on the very bottom) when it sounds empty but I would rather everything be safely removed as well as the droppings and it be safely sanitized. Besides I don\'t want to take the chance of thinking its empty and it not and jeopardizing anyone\'s or animal’s safety. I really appreciate your help.


I have a family of 5 skunks (4 babies and a mom) that are currently living under my shed and possibly under the back patio as well. I have a fenced in yard and a dog that is not able to use it, as a result of the skunks. The babies have been coming out during broad daylight and I thought they were nocturnal animals. Would you be able to remove them? And what can I put around the perimeter of the back yard so they don\'t come back?


Wildlife can cause huge problems for both your family and your home, it’s best to get rid of them as soon as they are discovered.  If you or someone you know are having problems with wildlife, feel free to call Awesome Critter Getters at the number above for help.
