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.

Oakland County Wildlife Removal Tip: Will repellents get a squirrel out of the attic? Raccoons are one of the squirrels biggest predators so if the squirrel can smell the bigger animal around, it'll be more likely to flee and set up home somewhere else. That's the fact of the matter - that's the way the natural food chain works and sometimes, just sometimes, you can use this in your favor. If you have a squirrel in your attic, you won't be able to deal with the problem completely until you've sealed up all the holes and fixed all the damage, but if trapping and removing the creature seems a little too difficult, there is one repellent you could try. It's the only one that has been proven to have any effect - eviction fluid. It's made with the urine and other bodily fluids from male raccoons and it can work to get rid of squirrels and female raccoons in some places. With squirrels, it's because it thinks there is a threat of attack nearby. If you felt that, wouldn't you want to move away too?
Oakland County Animal News Clip: Michigan fish & game regulatory agency plan
The local Michigan agency has been involved in some sort of squirrel management approach conceived several years ago. The approach is based on biology and science. This was seen by some as bizarre and threatening simply because it was never heard of before. Many announced that the sky would fall if Michigan dared to enter the 21st century and begin to actually manage wildlife based on the study of animal biology and habitat science. The loud and little group was so shocked and fearful of the Michigan fish & game regulatory agency squirrel management plan that they took to screaming from the rooftops that the Michigan fish & game regulatory agency is hell-bent to end wildlife trapping. One off capture of the relatively small group that cried the loudest over this new approach was the lawsuit - the suit that is now dismissed. Oakland County extermination and trapping officials had nothing to say about this.
"The squirrel management plan was developed with public input to improve the health of the state's squirrel group of squirrels, to encourage healthy habitat, which squirrel and all other wildlife depend on, and to reduce squirrel-human conflicts," the animal control official announced. "We believe this squirrel management program will improve the health of our squirrel group of squirrels and the habitat that supports it and other wildlife. "Yes, wildlife trapping has become more challenging in many areas. However, the benefits from our program changes are unmistakable, as pest control companies have reported seeing and harvesting larger squirrel; land managers and foresters are seeing some regeneration recovery in our forests; and farmers are telling us that they have seen less damage to their crops," the animal control official announced.

The bottom line is it is over. Many sportsmen that held the belief that the Michigan fish & game regulatory agency was ill-advised or in some other way trying to hurt rather than help our squirrel group of squirrels, should take some sort of step back now and rethink what they have accomplished. That would be absolutely nothing. I suggested this week to some sort of friend that has had an eye on this lawsuit since it's filing that the group of people behind the suit should be somehow made to enroll in the Michigan Pest animal expert Trapper Education program. Maybe that would help them focus their energy back on the sport of wildlife trapping. Oakland County pest control and exterminator companies agreed with this.
That will never happen and I'm sure those of us that have written that this group needs to tuck it's tail and stop wasting our time and resources will be further barbecued. That's fine if it makes the leadership behind the ill-advised suit feel better. As long as they get back to the business of uniting sportsmen and promoting and supporting the great tradition of Michigan wildlife trapping.
