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 Oakland county animal services for assistance.

Rochester Hills Wildlife Removal Tip: Do mothballs or ammonia help repel squirrels? Some homeowners will resort to drastic measures in a bid to get rid of the wild animals they have in their home, and mothballs and ammonia have both been used in a bid to get rid of squirrels. Mothballs aren't quite as dangerous as ammonia but if you're going for the latter, which you shouldn't by the way, you should know what might happen as a result of your actions. It's always good to know all the facts. When you inhale ammonia, or when you touch it or swallow it, the chemical reacts with the water in your body and it then turns into a slightly different chemical - ammonium hydroxide. This chemical is very dangerous - it's corrosive which means it will literally burn through the cells in your body from the inside out. The kind of symptoms and damage that will be caused will very much depend on the amount that the body has come into contact with. It can cause instant respiratory problems as well as burning eyes, scratching throat, and with long-term contact even blindness, damage to the lungs, and even death. Should you use mothballs or ammonia to help repel squirrels? No, you shouldn't. There is a chance that you could cause damage to the rest of your household - kids and pets included, and you're also running the risk of hurting other animals too - animals you wouldn't have wanted to harm.

Rochester Hills Animal News Clip: Flying Squirrel- Another North American Splendor
Most often mistaken for some rare species of mouse, Flying Squirrel has been one of the most prominent animals of North America. It is known for its exceedingly smaller size. Let's get the knack of some significant features of Flying Squirrel.

As mentioned above, they typically resemble some kind of mouse, and their extra small body size adds to the misconception. Scientific societies, over the passage of time have conducted multifarious tests and researches on their breed, and were ultimately able to deduce that these are one of rare species of Squirrels. Their whiskers and quite apparent nose adds to their characteristics. The eyes are the most prominent thing on its entire face, rather body. Ear are relatively 'compact'. The fur is of grey color while there are patches of white on certain parts, like abdomen. Ever wondered, why is it called 'Flying' Squirrel? It is due to the lose folds of skin on its back which at times act like a 'parachute' while the squirrel jumps from a higher altitude, e.g. tree or cliff or while they simple hop around, allowing them to land smoothly. During the entire process of this thrilling jump, it makes use of its handy tail to amend the course of jump. Astounding, isn't it?

You might be little amazed to know that the term 'Flying Squirrel' encompasses not just a small, single species of squirrel, but it covers quite a range of these animals, typically something more than 40 species in particular. This is because they share a same trait of biological features. They all usually belong to a family called 'Sciuridae', while the Genus is believed to be of more than one kind. The order these squirrels belong to is often termed as their respective 'tribes'. Although this terminology goes appropriate for other breeds as well, Flying Squirrel in particular is most suited to it.

The reproduction pattern of Flying Squirrel varies from one tribe to another. However, the general trend has been that they indulge in mating for about 4 months of summer, during which a substantial number of offspring hit the scene. At a time, a female Flying Squirrel gives birth to about half a dozen babies. Like most other squirrels, these are devoid of any fur o their body, and are also unable to open up their eyes for certain number of weeks, typically 3 to 5. They are considered good at finding out their mates.

Like most other breeds of squirrels, Flying Squirrel too prefers living in woodlands- the denser, the better. Mangroves too make a good breeding ground for them. To be further precise, they opt to live on giant trees, making their gliding abilities even more desirable.

Nuts, of all the different kinds, are the most privileged form of diet for Flying Squirrel. Acorns and mushrooms also come under being their preferential. Berries and eggs are also a good source of energy, and of course fulfillment to the appetite of Flying Squirrel.

Unlike other variations of squirrel, like Gopher these are quite communal and social. They live with harmony and feel free to interfere and be interfered by others. This is one reason why their generation is widening day by day and their conservation is of almost no bother at current point of time.
