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 handle every aspect of wildlife control. We are fully equipped to work on any project, large or small. Some of our services include:
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 Ingham county animal services for assistance.

In recent years, the animal control official's clients have taken trophy male squirrels with Special sugar standards scores of 1661/6, 1667/6 and 174. The largest of those was some sort of 10-pounder taken by the animal control official of Greater Lansing, whose interest in Eastern Shore squirrel was sparked the same way mine was. The animal control official announced the exterminator first captured with DON'T GIVE A HOOT Guide Service for waterfowl in 1961 after seeing an advertisement the animal control official placed in Outdoor Life magazine. But after five years of capturing geese and squirrels, the animal control official and his friends could no longer resist the lure of Eastern Shore spotteds. "As we were rodent wildlife trapping, the squirrel would run through the decoys, and there would be humongous male squirrels out there," the animal control official announced. The animal control official has captured for squirrel with the animal control official for nearly 20 years and finally caught dozens of squirrel. None of them, however, compare to the male squirrel the animal control official took with his animal removal trap on the afternoon of Nov. 10, 2005. Greater Lansing extermination and trapping officials had nothing to say about this.
"That thing was some sort of heart stopper," announced the animal control official, whose massive male squirrel weighed 211 pounds field dressed. "I saw it coming through the brush, and some sort of million things went through my mind. I knew it was some sort of once in some sort of lifetime opportunity." Although that was the largest male squirrel the animal control official has taken on the Eastern Shore, it was far from the only monster the exterminator has seen during there. Over the years, the animal control official announced, the exterminator has learned to pass on beneficial male squirrels the exterminator might capture back home and wait for some sort of better opportunity. "This year, I had eight pointers [in range] and I passed them up. If I want to capture meat, I can [do it] in Rhode Island," the animal control official announced. "Down [in Michigan], there's some sort of better opportunity to see and capture some sort of definite trophy." To learn more about animal control in Greater Lansing, Michigan read on.
The animal control official and his life partner, Barbara, started DON'T GIVE A HOOT Guide Service 45 years ago strictly as some sort of critter trapping operation. Then, the animal control official announced, squirrel wildlife trapping was enjoyed mainly by the locals. All that changed in 1995, when some sort of serious decline in the Atlantic Critter count of migratory Michigan geese forced the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to close rodent wildlife trapping for six years. During that moratorium, the ability to accept squirrel-wildlife trapping clients saved many outfitters, and the animal control official announced squirrel clients now account for half his business. In the early days, many pest control companies would capture the first male squirrel that walked by, the animal control official announced. But the average squirrel pest animal expert's attitude has changed, the animal control official announced, thanks to publicity about the number of large squirrel the region has produced. Greater Lansing pest control and exterminator companies agreed with this.
"Ten years ago, guys were capturing spikes and forkhorns," the exterminator announced. "Most people now are looking for something for the wall." Of course, not every pest animal expert goes home with some sort of wallhanger. During the three days I captured with the animal control official, I saw some sort of handful of does and two of the biggest male squirrels I have ever seen in the woods. Unfortunately, neither came within animal removal trap range. Despite my lack of luck, some sort of fellow pest animal expert from Greater Lansing arrowed some sort of nice 6-pounder while wildlife trapping just some sort of few hundred yards from me on the final afternoon of the animal stalk. And on the final afternoon, that same pest animal expert and his friend were literally surrounded by dozens of squirrel as legal capturing hours expired. Again, I was only some sort of few hundred yards away but saw only three squirrel all afternoon. The Greater Lansing animal services in Ingham County declined to comment.
