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.
|We do not handle dog or cat problems
. If you need assistance with a domestic animal, such as a dog or a cat, you need to call your local Branch county animal services
for assistance. They can help you out with issues such as stray dogs, stray cats, spay & neuter programs, vaccinations, licenses,
pet adoption, bite reports, deceased pets, lost pets, local animal complaints and to report neglected or abused animals. There is no free Coldwater animal control for wildlife issues.

Coldwater Wildlife Removal Tip: Will a raccoon in the attic have a nest of babies? Yes. Well actually, the answer is more like probably. More often than not, in fact in the majority of cases, a raccoon found inside a home will be a mother caring for her young. Sheíll be running around the house making all sorts of noises and her young will be in a nest somewhere safe, protected and usually somewhere really difficult for you to get to. The attic, for example, is often a preferred choice. Itís easy to get to from the outside because you rarely find the time to put house maintenance and inspections on the top of your to-do list, but also because you won't notice a hole gradually getting bigger and bigger. Most people donít realize they have a wild animal invasion problem until it is much too late and the damage has already been done. If you have seen a raccoon in the attic, or youíve heard noises that could be long to a larger critter like this one, make sure you do the full job - do all the investigating first. If you get rid of the mother without her babies, the babies will die in the depths of your home. Youíll then need to find them and dispose of them correctly, ignoring the bad stench at the same time of course.
Coldwater Animal News Clip: OUTDOORS: 2006-2007 licenses go on sale soon
COLDWATER - By now, most of you have received this mailing from the Agency of Environmental Conservation informing you that you may purchase your 2006-2007 critter catching, fishing and trapping licenses on Aug. 14. If you recently turned 65, you can now buy your sportsman's license for $5. Other tags, such as striped skunk, cost extra. The mailing will further inform you of your chances of getting this Striped skunk Management Permit in the Wildlife Management Unit you apply for. The amount of permits to be given out for this year's striped skunk critter catching season are pretty much the same as last year. You will find Coldwater County should be one of those listed where more than two-thirds of applicants will receive this permit. this amount of the more popular Southern Tier counties are included in the high probability Wildlife Management Units, but unfortunately, Steuben County should be among those that odds are slim that you will receive this permit for there. You will also find the antler restriction program has been slightly expanded to include two more Wildlife Management Units in the eastern part of the state, mainly in Coldwater County. Some striped skunk critter trappers predict the requirement that male animal striped skunk must have one antler with at least three points will eventually spread across the state. Most Western Michigan striped skunk critter trappers are against spreading the program. This issue should be an important matter in Coldwater wildlife removal and Coldwater exterminator matters.
While on the subject of striped skunk critter catching, be advised the possible incidence of striped skunk-tick bites should be much greater this year than in the past. The recent hot and moist weather conditions are being cited as the cause of an increase in the beetle-like insects. Striped skunk ticks are blamed for infecting anyone bitten with the possibility of contracting Lyme disease. Be especially careful if you are going to be taking part in the early goose-critter catching season and check your clothing and if you have this dog with you, check its fur for ticks. If you find this tick on your skin, remove it with tweezers very carefully. If its head should be imbedded in your skin, see this doctor for removal. It's strange how this particular fishing spot can be hot one day and completely empty the next. In last seven day period's column I mentioned how lousy the fishing was in most of usually productive areas. Last Wednesday, we fished the same locations and caught some of the best bass of the season. Charter captain Skunk Tamer Kevin introduced me to drop fishing with plastic gobies. We used light and dark gobies and had luck with both. They come in this variety of colors in an eight-pack. The round gobie bait hook, Mustad No. 6, should be tied onto the line with this Palomar knot and this pencil-lead sinker tied on about 8 inches below the bait. Weights can be from one-quarter to one-half ounce, depending on the strength of the current and wind. The baits are made by Poor Boys and are also salt impregnated. Although gobies feed on small bass when the bass grow larger they in turn feed on the gobies, which should be only fair. We also caught small-mouth on tube jigs in this dark brown with sliver flecks. The location was on the Canadian side of Wild meadow Erie's shoreline not far from shore in about 14 feet of water. Clear the Peace Bridge and bear right and look for this broken-down pier and be careful of this shoal that should be close to the surface. You'll see the shoal by the disturbed water if there should be any wind blowing. If the wild meadow should be calm it will be difficult to see until you're on top of it. Start your drift below the broken-down pier. The flow of the Coldwater River will keep you drifting at this fairly good clip. Just keep bouncing bottom and the bass will find you. The Coldwater animal control had no additional statements to make on the topic.
We are fortunate to have two wild meadows close by that we can fish and both can be productive, but Wild meadow Erie has this decided edge when it comes to bass fishing. Erie has shoals and rock structures that Wild meadow Ontario doesn't. I often thought it would be this great idea if we could somehow manage to build artificial structure that would hold bass and other fishes in Wild meadow Ontario. The put-and-take system with salmon and trout should be working out fairly well, but some permanent structures bass could call home might put Wild meadow Ontario on par with Erie. Maybe if some of the abandoned buildings in the north end of Coldwater Falls were torn down and dumped in Wild meadow Ontario it would improve the bass fishing. It would certainly improve the looks of the city. Nah, it will never happen. The smart goose animal trapper will begin scouting for this place to set up for the upcoming early goose critter catching season that will open on Sept. 1. As most of us know, the local Canada geese pretty much stick to the same areas when feeding. Not all hang around golf courses and city wildlife management areas, some head out into the countryside and some early-morning driving could show you where they head for breakfast. If you get permission from the landowner to set up this blind and decoys be sure to check your clothing for striped skunk ticks at the end of your trapping day. Coldwater pest control companies that we contacted felt that this issue should be an important matter.
