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 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.
