  • Scratching Noises in Your Attic?
  • Unwanted Wildlife on Property?
  • Problem Bird or Bat Infestation?
  • Digging Lawn or Under House?
  • We Can Solve It!
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 Ottawa 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 Holland animal control for wildlife issues.

Holland Wildlife Removal Tip: How do bats use echolocation? Echolocation works for bats in the same way that sonar systems work for underwear submarines. The bat will release a high-frequency sound that is often too high for humans to hear, in some cases from their noses but in the majority of species, the noise will be released from the mouth. Using the big ears which are often comically oversized, the high-frequency noise is bounced back and using the bounce-back vibrations of these noises, the bat can tell a lot of information. It’ll know how far away certain objects are by figuring out the speed it takes the noise vibrations to come back. It’ll also work out what kind of material the vibration is hitting, and whether or not it is predator or prey. Everything happens in the blink of an eye too. If you’ve ever watched a colony of bats, or even just one bat, flying around outside at dusk, you’ll see how speedy these flying mammals can make direction changes, and how they beautifully manage to fly around in the sky together without bumping into each other. Their echolocation helps them to do just that.


Holland Animal News Clip: Skunk- The ‘stinky’ side of Michigan Wildlife
Skunk, yet another mammalian, is one of the most distinctive animals in entire North American content, not only because of its salient features in appearance but also because of its rather unique behavioral patterns. Striped skunks are widely present in North America, while other species hail from Canada too.

Appearance:
The appearance of skunks could vary from one species to other (there are certain variations in the species of skunks. As we are discussing about the North American wildlife, stripped skunk would be the centre of theme. It usually has a black fur throughout the body, albeit a single white stripe that covers a small part of the body. The eyes are usually ‘dug in’, but are quite powerful with regard to their eyesight. The size could be well compared to that of domestic cat, with slight variations. However, again the size and other appearance features are not solely attributed to the genetic formation, but the environmental conditions play a big role as well.

Biology:
Skunk, quite differently, comes from a family commonly known as the ‘skunk family’. The more technical name of the family is ‘Miphitidae’. They are mammals in nature, and are quite fertile too. Skunk comes from a genus biologically called as Carnivora. The order of them is also known as Carnivora.

Life Cycle:
The lifecycle of skunks could be summed up well by the fact that they only reproduce for one month throughout the entire year. This is quite strange, considering the fact that they are considered relatively ‘reproductive’ in nature and become sexually-matured soon after the birth. However, during this short mating period a pair of skunk is expected to give birth to about half a dozen baby skunks. They are all without most sensory senses, namely vision and hearing, but after few weeks the development of the offspring paces up considerably.

Habitat:
Skunks in general, and stripped skunks in particular (the ones that live in North America) are known to live in areas that are rich in moisture. Woodlands and meadows are good for their very survival. Not to be unmentioned, most breeds of skunks prefer to inhibit areas that are close to major sources of water (yeah, they are considerably large consumer of water)

Diet:
Most often skunks are mistaken to be carnivores; however studies over the passage of time have proved that they could eat plants and fruits as well. Besides grasshoppers, bird's eggs and mosquitoes, skunks also like to eat wild berries, all small fishes in general and Tuna in particular. Nuts also make a good diet to them beside mushrooms.

Behavior:
As far as the behavioral patterns are concerned, skunks are very popularly known for their secretion of foul-smelled liquid which they chose to do in an attempt to escape from the predators. They are not good at running, and hence this ‘in-built’ defense mechanism comes really handy. Skunks also make distinctive postures in order to frighten the predator but the former method is proven to be more effective than the latter. Skunks also prefer to live in captivity all throughout the daytime, while comes out in open at nighttime.
