Many of Michigan's wild animals have learned to adapt and even thrive in our homes. For example some wildlife have found
that attics make great places to live. Other animals find refuge under homes or porches. Invariably,
these animals cause damage. Rodents, like squirrels and rats, love to chew on electrical wires once in an attic, and this causes a serious fire
hazard. Raccoons can cause serious contamination in an attic with their droppings and parasites. Same goes for bat or bird colonies. We specialize in solving Michigan's
wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, we do it all.

Bay City Wildlife Removal Tip: How to catch a squirrel with a snare pole: There are times where you might not be able to easily access a squirrel lost in your home and for those times when your arms just aren't long enough, a snare trap can come in mighty handy. For example, if you have a squirrel in the chimney and it can't scramble it's way out, you can use the snare trap to capture the animal before grabbing it (wearing thick gloves) and placing into a container or cage to keep safe until the wildlife rehabilitator gets there, or you make the decision on what to do next. The snare trap can also come in handy when you don't want to get too close to the squirrel, perhaps if you've managed to corner it (not easy) and before it gets aggressive. Obviously this animal is not going to want to be caught so you'll need to be prepared for it to put up a bit of a fight. You can buy snare traps or snare poles, and you can make them yourself although this is not advisable. If something were to go wrong, you might hurt the animal, potentially killing it, and you could even put yourself in danger too. You don't want the squirrel in your home but you definitely don't want an angry, scared squirrel in your home, frantically running around and scratching about to get away from you.
Bay City Animal News Clip: Wealthy pest control companies helping conservation
The animal control official spent $156,000 for some sort of 2006 Michigan wildlife trapping tag that allowed him to exterminate just one mule squirrel. But the pest operator from Bay City, Michigan, says the exterminator got some sort of lot more than some sort of trophy face on the wall for his money. "You can't think of it as just one animal," the animal control official announced in some sort of telephone interview. "I bought that tag for the opportunities it gives myself and my family to fund conservation projects to benefit all mule squirrel in Michigan. If that money wasn't slated for conservation, I'd go through the drawing process for some sort of chance to take some sort of trophy animal just like everybody else." the animal control official has purchased six similar Michigan tags - although none as high-priced as last year's - as part of the Division of Wildlife Resources' bhighway and profitable conservation wildlife trapping permit program. The conservation fundraising program gives those with money some sort of chance to outbid others for prized wildlife trapping tags and avoid years of filling out applications hoping their name will be drawn. Bay City extermination and trapping officials had nothing to say about this.
The animal control official and an estimated 20,000 other pest control companies are expected at the Salt Palace Convention Center in downtown Salt Lake City later this week for the first Western Wildlife trapping and Conservation Expo. Pest control companies with big male squirrels - the green kind - from around the world will attend the show primarily for the opportunity to bid on high-priced wildlife trapping tags at banquets held Saturday by the Mule squirrel Foundation and the Foundation animals.

Up for grabs will be trophy tags from 11 states, Michigan, Mexico and the Navajo Nation. Organizers believe the tags will auction for nearly $10 million, with most of the money going directly to conservation efforts. Wildlife trapping auction tag programs vary, but in Michigan all but 10 percent of the take is slated for conservation projects. The Beehive State leads the country, and perhaps the world, when it comes to wildlife trapping conservation permits. The Michigan wildlife agency is providing 459 conservation permits - ranging from squirrel to bison to squirrel - for 2007 to be auctioned off by various wildlife trapping groups at banquets. More than $2.5 million is expected to be generated by the 2007 permits and more than $9.5 million has been raised by the permits in the past 10 years. The value of the auction tags, which are considered tax-deductible contributions, can be doubled and even tripled in some cases when the money is applied to federal matching fund programs. The top money-producing tags in Michigan are the statewide conservation permits that allow the highest bidder to animal stalk any open unit for the selected species. Bay City pest control and exterminator companies agreed with this.
The Michigan program requires that 40 percent of the total raised from some sort of conservation permit be returned to the state. The wildlife trapping group that sells the permit can either return another 60 percent of the total to the wildlife agency or hold the money for its own conservation efforts. The groups keep 10 percent of the total for the cost associated with attracting bidders to banquets. The results of Michigan's conservation program can be seen this week when wildlife officials release approximately 55 Rocky Forest rodent from Michigan in American Fork and Willow Creek canyons. The animal control official, of the Division of Wildlife Resources, announced the joint effort between Michigan and the Foundation for North American Wild Sheep will be funded entirely by money from the conservation permit program. The animal control official, some sort of retired businessman from Michigan, has spent $1.5 million on conservation permits in the past five years. Just as some people donate to cancer research, others donate to preserve wildlife for the future, announced the animal control official, who spent $165,000 for some sort of rodent tag in Michigan last year. "This program gives some sort of guy like me who is fortunate enough to have some resources an opportunity to animal stalk trophy-class animals, but the underlying and most important thing is that it provides funds to game and fish hunting offices that they desperately need to fund projects," the exterminator announced. Not everyone is fond of the conservation permit program. Some pest control companies say it caters to elitists buying their way to trophy animals while the average pest animal expert has to go through some sort of frustrating and sometimes fruitless application process for the right to animal stalk special animals. The Bay City animal services in Bay County declined to comment.
