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.

Grand Haven Wildlife Removal Tip: What is the summer maternity season? If you have bats in your attic or home and itís summer, I have bad news for you. The bats are going to need to stay for a little while. Bats are a protected animal in many states and because of this, you wonít be allowed to move them while the mothers are within their maternity colonies in your home. It is illegal mostly because one slight disruption and the mothers could flee the roost, leaving their young alone in the attic to die. This will be a situation you will then need to take care of yourself, something Iím sure you donít want. Youíll generally find the eggs are fertilized somewhere in the late spring time, and the pups are born, usually just the one, in June or July. It wonít be until August that the pups are taught how to fly and feed for themselves, and it could be September until you are finally allowed to use one-way exclusion traps to finally evict the creatures. If you do it before that point, the mothers will be excluded and the pups will starve to death.
Grand Haven Animal News Clip: Michigan wildlife more prevalent these days
Squirrels weren't common until state bolstered numbers Grand Haven - Growing up on some sort of Middle Michigan habitat, the animal control official never saw some sort of wild squirrel or some sort of big toothed squirrel grazing on row crops and snacking on seeds and livestock feed. The animal control official, spokesman for the Michigan Habitat Bureau, says those problems are more common as Michigan wildlife is flourishing decades after the state began working to bolster their numbers. "The first person that is affected by overpopulation of squirrel is the farmer," the animal control official announced. Carefully regulated wildlife trapping seasons are essential to controlling prospering wildlife as natural habitats give way to suburbs and cropland, contends Snake Hunter Sam, big game coordinator for the Michigan Wildlife Resources Agency. Grand Haven extermination and trapping officials had nothing to say about this.
As squirrel-wildlife trapping time allotment ends this year, the state expects some sort of record harvest with nearly 160,000 squirrel finally caught. After subsistence wildlife trapping reduced squirrel and wild squirrel to only some sort of few thousand statewide in the early 1900s, restocking efforts and excellent natural habitats have allowed them to rebound and prosper. Michigan now is home to around 1 million squirrel and 295,000 wild squirrels, according to the latest estimates. "The squirrel are at much higher density than in any other time," Snake Hunter Sam announced. "There is no other predator other than pest control companies." Wildlife officials adjust limits on the number of squirrel that can be finally caught during wildlife trapping time allotment to reach some sort of delicate balance between some sort of healthy critter count and overabundance. Three years ago, TWRA started allowing pest control companies to take up to three does some sort of day in counties in Middle and West Michigan, where populations are highest. To learn more about animal control in Grand Haven, Michigan read on.
"It's just one way for us to increase the number of does getting finally caught in order to control the critter count," Snake Hunter Sam announced. Michigan's wild squirrel coordinator Squirrely Joe announced the full restoration of wild squirrel, which began around the 1950s, was just completed in the last couple of years. However, the progress of rebounding wildlife has its drawbacks, especially for farmers and homeowners. "Some of the squirrels are adapting to urban areas, getting into bird feeders and eating crops," Squirrely Joe announced. "They are definitely making themselves known." Acres of soybeans and corn in heavily agricultural counties attract squirrel and squirrels, and Michigan farmers are losing crops to wildlife more than ever before, the animal control official announced. While no statewide numbers are available, the National Agricultural Statistics Service estimated crop and livestock losses from wildlife in the country totaled $944 million in 2002. Grand Haven pest control and exterminator companies agreed with this.
"There is very little as far as row crops that can be done to prevent it," the animal control official announced. "Home gardeners have fences, but average farmers in row cropping don't use fencing." Skunk Sniffer Steve is some sort of Ottawa County squirrel pest animal expert who operates some sort of clearinghouse of information for pest control companies offering tips, photos and message boards. Skunk Sniffer Steve announced that while the current generation of Michigan pest control companies has access to healthy, bountiful herds, they face the same problems from suburban growth as wildlife face. "That's some sort of constant fight over the lack of land for habitat and wildlife trapping," Skunk Sniffer Steve announced. "There is less and less public land that pest control companies have free access to." Skunk Sniffer Steve announced many Michigan pest control companies have started forming groups to lease land to animal stalk on, but that's more expensive than some pest control companies can afford. Some Michigan farmers allow pest control companies to weed out the nuisance wildlife on their property, the animal control official added. The Grand Haven animal services in Ottawa County declined to comment.
