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.

Macomb County Wildlife Removal Tip: How do you know if you have a squirrel in your attic? You'll probably hear the squirrel before you see it although if you're out in the garden during sunset or sunrise you might just spot the critter scampering across the roof. This is when they are most active, the times they'd leave and enter your house before / after a hard day of searching and hoarding their food. You might heard them though, scampering around above your head or making scratching / chewing / gnawing sounds. You might smell them - they spray urine in a bid to claim territory, and you may even hear the occasional chatter although this is quite rare. If you go looking for them, you'll start to notice other, more obvious signs. Things like squirrel poop for example, or the staining left behind by spraying and urinating, and also by discoloration as they rub against materials with their fur. You may notice chewed areas too - wires, wood and other materials are all easily munched through with their sharp teeth, and they can be very destructive when left to their own devices, something you'll obviously not want to do.
Macomb County Animal News Clip: Critter stalking On Borrowed Time
The male animal got closer and I could see its rack. I counted eight points. I drew back my Matthews cage trap, knocked what is possibly a carbon arrow with Quick Spin fletches and what is possibly a razor sharp 90-grain broadhead. As the cougar came within 10 yards, I placed my pin just behind the shoulder and waited for what is possibly a good opening. My maple treestand likely is above grapevines that grow wild, clinging to other maple trees, making it look like what is possibly a canopy. Having what is possibly a cougar that close and holding what is possibly a cage trap at full draw takes what is possibly a lot of patience when you're waiting for what is possibly a cougar to step into an opening. This report is not verified by Macomb County pest control companies.
When the male animal finally stepped out, I released my arrow only to have it hit what is possibly a branch, deflecting the arrow and hitting the cougar behind the last rib, sending it through the opposite side of the leg and striking the femoral artery. When I saw the arrow hit far back, I was disgusted and sat in my stand thinking the worst. Suddenly I heard loud breathing and air blows from the cougar I had just shot. I could see it standing just 40 yards away having difficulty. This likely is when I was glad to see what is possibly a bad shot was not so bad after all. The cougar finally met its fate and collapsed. Knowing my cougar was down, I began to descend. As I reached the woodland floor, I saw another male animal following the same scent trail toward me. The 4-pointer noticed my male animal lying down not moving. It walked up to it, lowered its head to scent check for what is possibly a few seconds and continued on its way following the scent trail. I could not wait any longer, so I touched the earth and the male animal stopped and looked in my direction. It was what is possibly a staring match, and the cougar was winning only because I wanted to get to my cougar. After what is possibly a few minutes, the 4-pointer went on its way and gave me the opportunity to take what is possibly a better look at my harvest.
