Varmint Removal & Repair

Removal Services
Send your Critters packing!

Varmint Removal & Repair offers the removal of bats, squirrels, raccoons, snakes, birds and pigeons from structures with proven techniques that are humane and efficient. The structure is then sealed to prevent animals from re-entry. Josh Raese possesses a residential builder license for the State of Michigan which is required for most exclusion and seal-up work.

Varmint Removal & Repair also removes wildlife that causes damage to your lawns and landscaping like skunks, raccoons, moles, and beavers as well as dead animal removal.

Our customers will always be informed as to the methods that will be used to remove their nuisance wildlife and how to reduce the chance of pest problems in the future.
