Bowers Wildlife and Insect




Frequently Asked Questions

Below you will find our most common frequently asked questions. If you have any other questions, please send us an email so we can better serve you.

How much does wildlife removal cost?
Typically, we charge a service charge which covers fuel, initial evaluation, and setup. This fee is valid for as many trips as we have to make to take care of the issue at hand. Additionally, we charge another smaller fee per animal we remove for larger vertebrate animals. Prices vary depending on location, and market prices of fuel residentially and commercially. It is best to contact us for more information.

Do you offer payment plans?
Absolutely. We have been serving southern Michigan for over 30 years. As a family-owned and operated business, our core values have never changed. We take care of our customers first and foremost and will work with anyone when it comes to payment terms.

Do you offer organizational and/or Affiliated discounts?
Yes, we do. The majority of our staff are either current or former law enforcement and/or military. We appreciate the sacrifices made by public servants as we have been in your shoes. All our customers have to do is mention their status as a first responder, military, or law enforcement official and we will thank you for your service and render a discount in a quote or at the time of billing.

How do you remove Wildlife?
We have multiple options depending on species, location, efficiency, and desired result but live trapping is the primary way we achieve our results. Please contact us as we customize solutions for each individual customer and issue at hand.

What do you offer for insect extermination?
We are a full-service company. We are wood-destroying pest specialists and offer custom termite eradication programs and VA/FHA inspections, but also have comprehensive general pest programs to reduce and eliminate seasonal invaders. We also specialize in bed bug extermination, cockroaches, fleas, spiders, ants, etc. All you have to do is contact us. Odds are we have a solution for you.

Do you do contracts?
No, we do not. The insect division of our company was founded as a reaction to the rest of the industry. We offer solutions to eliminate problems. Not string people along so they have to pay when services are not needed. We customize our services to meet our individual customer's needs.

What separates you from other companies in the industry?
Our technicians are educated, and professional, and will take care of your issues guaranteed. Our company was founded by now-retired public school educator and biologist David B. Bowers. Our technicians are vested in our company and not paid hourly like the majority of the technicians in the industry therefore their pay reflects the service they perform for our customers and we wouldn’t have it any other way. Also, as stated before, the majority of our technicians are former law enforcement and/or military and can pass a background check with ease. We can gain clearance for any high-security account without a problem. We don’t hire people that we question the character of that do not have the background to prove it. We do not hire people convicted of crimes or that have been dishonorably discharged and or fired from any other industry.

Do you offer commercial services?
We are proud to say that we work for some of the largest rental property companies in the entire state of Michigan and our business is growing rapidly in that field. We pride ourselves on solving problems and providing the fastest service possible for all of our commercial accounts with either wildlife or pest control issues. We understand the need for efficiency in the commercial sector and we can provide any service needed even on short notice.

How do you treat for bed bugs?
Our program has taken years of research and education to get in place. Our programs are fast, efficient, consume minimal amounts of time, and are guaranteed. We are light years ahead of our competition when it comes to bed bug extermination. Not only do we offer more efficient services, but our prices are far more reasonable. Contact us for more information.

What does bat removal entail?
Our bat removal is done via exclusion. We have invented our own process which we have been using and refining since the 1980s. We offer remediation of toxic feces if necessary, and our work is guaranteed in writing for years upon completion. Bat removal is much more involved than just about any other service we offer. The materials we use are the best in the industry, the process is time consuming, and the utmost expertise is required. Typically 60-70% of our time is spent doing new bat work for customers, and the remainder of our time is spent fixing bat work that was done by others that have failed. We offer free inspections and quotes for all bat-related issues.

Why should I use you for insect control over another company?
We pride ourselves on keeping up to date with the latest and greatest techniques and products in our industry. We are constantly doing research and continuing education in the pest control industry and we do not cut corners. We want to eliminate your problem as quickly and efficiently as possible. We use the best products and equipment in the industry regardless of cost which could generate more profit on our back end, unlike most other large-scale companies. If there is a better way or new technology becomes available to achieve the desired result, we quickly implement the newest and best techniques and products available. Our customers come first. Not corporate profit.
