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 Clare county animal services for assistance.

There is no free Harrison animal control for wildlife issues.

Harrison Wildlife Removal Tip: About Flying Squirrel: Appearance, Biology, Life Cycle, Habitat, Diet, Behavior

Medium sized squirrel with the ability to fly is referred as flying squirrel and they are mainly found in grassland and woodland. There are various species of squirrel around the world and they are not endangered however with the loss of habitat they will soon be listed as the engendered species. They are mostly found in northern and southern states of America and Canada.


Depending upon the species their appearance varies, some has brown to grey fur on their back with white stripes on their belly and some are red. Squirrels are nocturnal mammal with large dark bulging eyes for better vision at night. They have sensitive long whiskers which make nocturnal travel easier. They have long flattened sturdy tails which assist them while gliding and maintain balance. They have furry stretchy membranous structure between back and front legs which opens like a parachute while gliding. Male and female squirrel looks identical.


Being nocturnal animal squirrel usually forage for food during night and they have an omnivorous diet. They usually prefer nuts, incest, berries, slugs, snail, flowers, tree barks and bird egg.


Some northern flying squirrel lives mainly in forest which is either mixed or coniferous while the southern species prefer the hardwood forest filled with trees like maple, beech, oak and hickory. The largest species of flying squirrel is called the woolly flying squirrel and the smallest is called the pygmy flying squirrel.

Flying squirrel does not hibernate in winter and are mostly dynamic between dusk and dawn. They restrict their movement and activity during winter to preserve the energy as there is scarcity of food. They share their nest or den with other animals like woodpecker or bats or in large group up to twenty squirrels as they are very sociable mammal and also help them to stay warm during the cold weather.

Biology and Life cycle

Early spring and summer is the best time for breeding for these flying squirrel and they usually breed twice a year. Babies are born blind and naked but quickly develop fur and begin to glide and forage copying their mother. Their life span depends on mostly where they are; in wild flying squirrel has an average life span of four to six years whereas in captivity they can live up to ten to sixteen years.


Since they are generally smaller in size they have many predators around them from cats, foxes, snakes and different birds of prey-owl, hawk however their gliding ability help them to escape form these predators.
