Grand Rapids Raccoon Control
Keeping Michigan Homes & Businesses Wildlife-Free Since 1996
Raccoon are very adaptable and learn very quickly. These masked opportunists can be very destructive - opening or knocking over improperly covered trash, and are masters at breaking & entering, finding your property’s vulnerabilities. Raccoons are omnivores, eating both meat and vegetation. In the wild they eat crayfish, frogs, other aquatic creatures, mice, insects, eggs, fruits, and plants. But because of their opportunistic nature they will raid gardens, crop fields, animal feed stores, pet food, garbage containers, and even your kitchen! Our Michigan wildlife control experts at Varmint Evictors, Inc. can safely remove these rummaging critters from your home or business. We are a local, and family-owned business, committed to keeping our neighbors safe from wandering wildlife, and work hard to not only remove critters like raccoons, but also, keep these creatures from returning.
Raccoon Removal Requires an Experienced Hand
Raccoons are usually skittish but if cornered, can be very dangerous. Although they are cute, raccoons can be ferocious and carriers of rabies, so never allow your pet to go after a raccoon. With over 24 years of experience eradicating wildlife throughout Central Michigan, our Grand Rapids raccoon control team at Varmint Evictors, Inc. has the practical know-how to deal with these clever creatures in ways that keep your family, home, and the animal safe. Whether you’ve heard some scratching in the attic, or you’ve seen a raccoon family in your space, we have the skills and tools to thoroughly inspect your property, come up with a high-quality plan, and quickly and effectively remove the creatures.
Species of Raccoon Found in Michigan
Raccoons usually have only one gestation period a year of around 63 days. They give birth to an average of 4 kits around April-May and the young leave their nest about 7 to 8 weeks later.
Types of raccoons in Michigan include:
- Eastern Raccoon: Relatively small, dark raccoon with long soft fur. Their masks are surrounded by bold off-white lines.
- Upper Mississippi Valley Raccoon: Large Raccoon with a buff thick coat, excellent for winter. These raccoons have a large territorial range often over 6 miles.
