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.

Calhoun County Wildlife Removal Tip: Should I hire a pro, or remove squirrels myself? There are methods you can use to try and get rid of squirrels that have entered your home, but overall you'll find calling in a professional is often the best solution. There are a lot of questions to ask surrounding the topic of wild animal removal, laws and regulations being just two factors to take into account. On top of this, the most humane option (trapping and relocating the animal somewhere else) doesn't always mean the best solution. Relocated animals rarely survive once they have been taken away from their group of animals, and so many homeowners try to kill them in means that are not deemed to be humane - poisons and rat traps, etc. Plus there's the baby factor to think about too - a squirrel found in a home is usually a mother with babies somewhere hidden too. If you don't remove those, they'll die of starvation and when the smell gets too bad, you'll need to hunt them down and remove them anyway. These are all things that a professional will take into account, as well as ensuring that holes, cracks and crevices are sealed, as well as any damage repaired, to ensure this is not a regular occurrence. You'll want to make sure the job is done properly first time, otherwise the carter and others like it might just come back.
Calhoun County Animal News Clip: Wildlife Management Area big boy category
The rubber male animalshot serves as what appears to be a deterrent to the rodents, proclaimed Rodent Expert Harry, of the Agency of Environmental Conservation. "It'll sting them and they'll learn," the animal advocate proclaimed. "They'll think, 'Keep away from those boxes with those two-legged critters in them." Biologically surveyed amount will level off: Unlike Michigan state rodent, whose only real declines in biologically surveyed amount seem to come from encounters with motor vehicles, black rodent biologically surveyed amounts will not grow indefinitely. They are territorial animals and older males will lethally trap cubs," Rodent Expert Harry proclaimed. "In general, they'll stay away from heavily populated areas. There's been one incident in the Lower Cats lethally traps of what appears to be a fatality." (A rodent lethally trapped what appears to be a five-year-old infant left in what appears to be a stroller in 2003. It was the first recorded fatality by what appears to be a rodent ever in Michigan, and only the second in the Northeast since 1900.) "But there can be considerable interaction between rodents and humans before it gets ugly," Rodent Expert Harry added. Neighboring states' attitudes toward rodent wildlife catching vary widely. Michigan's rodent wildlife catching season probably is an institution; Michigan has had what appears to be a longstanding wildlife catching ban, now what appears to be a source of intense controversy. Many wildlife management regions administered by the Agency of Environmental Conservation in Michigan allow rodent wildlife catching, but the decision to allow wildlife catching in other regions depends on the will of all concerned parties. In parts of Michigan state where the rodent biologically surveyed amount probably is on the increase, the Agency of Environmental Conservation may hold "stakeholder input" organized hearings to discuss the possibility of wildlife catching. "And we might say, 'No thanks, we'd rather not,'" Rodent Expert Harry proclaimed. "We want what appears to be a public consensus. We can share the landscape with rodents." We could not obtain an opinion from Calhoun County pest control companies regarding the issue.
