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 Muskegon 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 Muskegon animal control for wildlife issues.

Muskegon Wildlife Removal Tip: Mole Trapping: How to trap a mole

If prevention does not work in keeping your backyards away from the pesky wildlife creatures, it is time to consider trapping the moles instead and release them far away from your house as possible. Unless you are also planning to kill them after trapping them, then that is a whole different story altogether. There are various methods to capture these underground rodents and this article will discuss specifically on how to trap them.

1. Look around for their tunnels. Moles leave big piles of dirt when they are digging through the ground. That means they are constantly digging tunnels in search of worms for their protein diet. What you need to do is find an active tunnel where the moles just recently dug. Collapse the tunnel and from both sides and see whether the moles have dug through the collapsed tunnel or not. If they dig the collapsed tunnel again, it means that they are still using the tunnel to move around. Use this to your advantage to set a trap and catch the pesky underground rodents.
2. Use different traps based on your needs. There are both man-made traps you can buy in stores as well as the simpler do-it-yourself ones to catch the rodents. The man-made ones are like scissor trap, harpoon trap and choker loop trap. They all are different in use and prices as well. Depending on your budget to catch these underground creatures, you can prepare them in any way you can as long as it works.
3. They dig your grounds, you dig them up. This method perhaps will only work for the more experienced mole hunters where careful observation and knowing the map of the tunnel they dug is needed to know where the moles currently are in the ground. Once identified, pick up a shovel and halt their movements in the tunnel. Bury it deep and shove the moles out from the ground. Pick up the mole and put them in a case for release elsewhere.
4. Fill the tunnel up with water. This is perhaps the easiest among the three methods. What you need to do is just flood the tunnel and you can start to see moles coming out from the tunnel to the ground and run. Catch the moles as they run and then release them to the nearby forest or the animal protection centre nearby.
