The Modern Trapper is a wildlife, animal control and removal company. We work with farmers and landowners to eliminate or reduce conflicts with wildlife. We are located in Grand Haven, Michigan. Our service area includes Ottawa County and southern Muskegon County.
Both Ottawa County and Muskegon County have a healthy abundance of wildlife. We are committed to maintaining those healthy populations in both the wild and urban environments. However, there are times when wildlife populations become unbalanced. When that happens damage to personal property can occur.
Our primary focus is working with farmers and landowners to control predator populations on their land. Working with the landowner, we develop strategies to reduce raccoon, fox and coyote numbers with the over all goal to increase the quality and number of deer and turkey.
In addition, we also work with condominium associations, homeowners and homeowner associations in the greater Grand Haven Area to removal and control wildlife. We remove and control fox, raccoons, skunks, opossums, ground hogs, muskrats and beavers.
Wildlife Removal Philosophy:
Damage from wildlife can occur in many ways. Those include, raccoons and skunks digging up lawns in search of grub and ground hogs dig dens along house foundations. In addition, muskrats can dig up the banks of ponds and beavers can destroy trees. When this happens, contact us as soon as you notice the damage occurring to prevent further degradation.
For wildlife removal and control, we use modern trapping techniques such as live trapping. Live trapping includes the trapping and relocation of the animal.
However, if the damage continues we may need deploy traditional techniques to end the damage. In addition, depending on the animal, the law may not allow for relocation. In those cases we would use traditional methods for the removal .
Contrary to popular belief, traditional techniques are humane and done in a way that causes no suffering.
Wildlife removal and animal control can be tricky and should be handled by a professional. The wildlife we remove are not pets. They are wild, aggressive and can carry rabies or others types of diseases.
A portion of our profits go to support efforts to protect endangered and threatened wildlife.
