National Wildlife Control is proudly owned and operated by Ben Stewart. Ben grew up in the small town of Mason just south of Lansing, Michigan. When he was young he found himself outside nearly all the time hunting, trapping, and fishing. Ben loves the outdoors and has a deep respect for everything Mother Nature has provided.
After high school, Ben worked on a framing crew, which led him to become a trim carpenter and start his own building company which was involved in all aspects of trim carpentry, full-scale remodeling and barn building. Ben has been a licensed builder with the State of Michigan since 2005.
In 2010, he decided to pursue his passion for wildlife and he sold his building company to his partner and started his first wildlife business: Humane Animal Removal Team (H.A.R.T.). Ben owned and operated H.A.R.T. until 2015 when he felt a desire to serve his community on a public scale. Ben became an animal control officer for Ingham County and sold H.A.R.T. to a close friend. H.A.R.T. continued to run successfully until 2019 when the new owner decided to move and start a new business in Northern Michigan.
After serving his community for two and a half years, Ben began to feel pulled back into building and wildlife; he felt he could better serve the community in consulting and assisting with home repairs and helping low-income community residents rid their homes of pest problems.
After much consideration, Ben resigned from his position as an officer and created a handyman business, Handyman Solutions of Michigan Inc., in 2017. Ben continued to do wildlife removal and exclusion under the company alias Bat Solutions. In 2018, with a long background, reliability, and knowledge in construction and pest removal, he officially founded a new comprehensive wildlife removal company named National Wildlife Control, LLC.
With National Wildlife Control, LLC, in addition to my building license and handyman business, Ben can now serve his community even more. Ben is appreciative all of the support in not only making his dream wildlife business a reality, but also in helping make Michigan's community thrive.
