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 Gladwin 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 Gladwin animal control for wildlife issues.

Gladwin Wildlife Removal Tip: How To Get Rid Of Flying Squirrels

Getting rid of flying squirrel can be difficult and tricky as they are small animals and they usually nest in tiny holes. Being nocturnal animals they forage for food during night and make noises in ceilings and walls which are very annoying. They have a gnawing habit which makes damage to your home and yard. Different methods should be adopted to get rid of them.

First we need to identify the places which provide as the entry point for the flying squirrel. Those spots need to properly fence if possible so that no access is granted. Since they nest in tiny holes we should check all the opening for their nest and stuff them with steel wool using a wire as they cannot chew through it.

They invade homes in search of food so food should be properly stored in air tight metal containers. Property should be kept clean and garbage is properly disposed. The lids of the garbage can should also be made of metal so that it cannot be opened easily or chewed.

Home repair

Flying squirrels are very fast and agile, they can jump about four feet so any tree branches that can lead to the house should be chopped off so that they do not gain access to your home and make themselves comfortable. They are omnivorous and eat everything so getting rid of these tiny monsters is quite annoying. Any crack in the ceiling or foundation need to be sealed or repaired. Chimney vents should be blocked with chimney caps as it is their one of the favorite places to venture.


Gardens and backyard need to be clear of any clutter and bird feeder should be removed. Exclusion fencing and electric fencing in the yard can be done to get rid of the squirrel. Fence should be deep and high enough to keep the squirrel away from burrowing or flying over fences. Fences should be made using metal sheet or hardware cloth to make a strong fence. Trapping is the most effective method used to catch the squirrel.

Once they are caught squirrels need to be released far away at least 25 km away or else they could return. Different types of traps are available in the market so selecting the right trap is very important.

Flying squirrel repellent is available in the market or homemade repellent can be made to keep them away, however they are not very effective as it needs to be reapplied when it rains. Due to global climatic change there had been a loss of their habitat and soon the flying squirrel will become endangered so killing is not a good option.
