Eaton County, Michigan has Skunk Problems

Skunks in DeWitt, Michigan? YES!

The skunk spends its days in the 6 inches, or so, of space between my wood fence and my neighbors wood fence. There is a 5 or 6 inch diameter hole dug in the sandy soil about 10 feet from where I saw the skunk today. The hole has been there for about 1 month. I also saw the skunk between the fences 2 days ago. Bailey H.

From time to time I have smelled a \\\"chemical\\\" odor on my dog, but this a.m., the odor woke me up and almost sickened me. I live in a wooded area in Michigan and my backyard probably provides the perfect natural environment for skunks. Recently I discovered a big opening to a burrow under my shed, and I do have a large downed tree, complete with hollow available for occupancy! Trevor M.

We had distinct skunk odor in the garage and the house four days ago. Now the skunk odor is gone and there is just a putrid odor in the garage. Live or Dead, we have skunk problems. David L.

We have a consistent problem with skunks spraying under our house. It is unbearable and covering everything!  It’s like being sprayed by unwanted, putrid perfume every time you come into the house.  We would like to rid our home of these animals immediately and for good. Thanks.

-Kelly N.

Questions about Woodpeckers

We own a brick and cedar rental home in Charlotte, Michigan. The south side of building has been a favorite target of area woodpeckers over the past 20+ years (previously my parents\' home). Each year there will be 2-5 holes drilled into the cedar siding. We seem to think that the woodpeckers drill the holes and then smaller birds move in. No holes were drilled two years ago when the siding was stained. I think there was only one hole drilled last year. Our tenants tell me that they started hearing chirping noises several days ago (i.e., a week or so ago) in the wall of the upstairs bedroom. Please let me know what measures you would use to rid us of this problem. Thank you for your help.

It’s not uncommon to have smaller animals like birds, rodents, and bats move into old woodpecker holes.  It’s possible that the woodpecker itself is actually nesting inside of the hole.  Because of the federal protection granted to woodpeckers, the steps taken to get rid of them are careful and should be done by a professional.  We would use special sound, sight, and taste deterrents to give them a poor experience and encourage them to peck somewhere else.  Any other animals that are living/nesting inside of the woodpecker holes would have to be dealt with separately based on what kind of critter it is.

The Eaton 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 Eaton County Animal Control Services: . They work with domestic animals and can provide information about licensing, vaccinations, lost pets, etc. Eaton County does not offer free wildlife animal control services, nor do cities within Eaton 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 #6968 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 Eaton 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

Eaton County Wild Animal Control News, Stories, Events and Alerts


Eaton County, Michigan has Squirrel Problems

Here are examples of Squirrel Problems encountered by homeowners in Eaton County:

We have squirrels living in the area above the ceiling in a two story house. It takes a 20 ft. ladder to access the entry site. The squirrels must have just moved in. I doubt know if we can access the area from inside the house. Eric J.

I have had problems with squirrels in the attic last year and they came back this past winter. Now my heater in the house wasn\\\'t working so when we had it fixed they said there were a lot of dead squirrels covering the vents where the heat comes in. The technicians said we could have died from inhaling the air. Now my question is, how dangerous was that situation? Or do we need to get checked for any diseases? Stella W.

We are not sure what is crawling around between our first and second stories of our house. Sounds like birds and maybe squirrels? They are getting in through a vent we think. It\\\'s getting a little noisy up there! Paula H.

We have squirrels in our back yard and have always had troubles with them but never like this.  They recently started eating plants and gnawing on the fence around our yard and the edges of our porch! How do we get rid of them!?

-Raymond E.

Our  lakeshore home was quiet for 3 weeks, but when we came back we found a dozen acorns stashed behind a couch cushion but no other evidence of an animal. Downstairs, however, under a dumb waiter, we found turds. Outside, where stucco meets patio, more turds.  This might be the entry point? Turds look like black rice. No noises, smells. Some wood bits in exercise room behind the dumb waiter, I’m thinking it’s probably squirrels.
