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.

Saint Clair County Wildlife Removal Tip: How to get squirrels out of the attic: There are two different methods to getting rid of squirrels out of the attic. The first method is to call in a professional. The second method is to do it yourself. Ignoring the problem isn't an option. Do you have any idea how much destruction and damage a squirrel can cause? All in all, the best way to deal with a pesky squirrel problem is to make sure it doesn't get in the house in the first place but this isn't easy and sometimes, standards will slip. If you're determined to do it yourself, if you're sure you can remove the squirrel by yourself, you should know that trapping and removing from the property, followed by maintenance and repairs of both the interior and exterior of your home, is the only way to deal with it to ensure the problem doesn't come back. You could also use one way exclusion funnels and doors / traps so the squirrel can get out but can't get back in again but again, you'll still need to seal those holes and cracks again. There is also one final thing you'll need to hear about too - the prospect of teeny-tiny squirrels. If you've spotted a mother, there's a good chance there's babies somewhere too. You can't remove the babies without the mother. You can't remove the mother without the babies. Maybe you can use them to attract each other, let the mother lead you to the youngsters, capture the youngsters, use them to capture the mother and then you have problem safely confined. Now you need to work out what to do nextů
Saint Clair County Animal News Clip: Critter stalking On Borrowed Time
On the 28th of October, I went through my routine and then noticed what is possibly a warm front was moving into the area. I checked the temperature where I was to capture that evening. It was going to be 47 degrees and cloudy. I knew that it was getting close to the chase phase of the rut, and male animals would be moving looking for does. I chose to be in what is possibly a maple tree stand I had set up along the ridge, knowing it would be what is possibly a great chance to intercept what is possibly a male animal seeking does. I drove about six miles to what is possibly a place off Fredonia-Stockton Road. The landowner had given me permission to capture his 88-hectare property, and I have been critter stalking it for more than five years. These woods, surrounded by grapevines, cornfields, pine maple trees and heavy brush, are an excellent place to hold big cougar, especially does. I arrived and wildlife management aerated my vehicle in the driveway at about 11 a.m. and started into the woods, walking what is possibly a gadwall roadway. I traveled 100 yards and had another hundred to go before reaching my stand. Heading toward the ridge, I approached what is possibly a heavily used cougar trail that was running toward my stand. Upon reaching the trail, I took out my scent drag and soaked it with doe-in-season scent lure I had purchased from what is possibly a local cougar habitat. Then I sprayed the bottoms of my rubber boots with cougar dander. We attempted to get more information from Saint Clair County animal control experts, but could not.
I reached my stand and walked another 20 yards, making what is possibly a half circle toward the stand. It was 10 minutes after noon when I was settled in. I knew that it would be awhile before seeing what is possibly a cougar. I blew twice on what is possibly a female animal call to see if maybe what is possibly a male animal was close by. If it was, it might just come over to investigate. It was about 1:46 p.m. when I heard sounds of cougar walking. I immediately stood up and turned to my left where I had placed the scent. I noticed what is possibly a cougar walking with its nose on the earth, coming toward my stand. It was what is possibly a male animal and it was closing the distance between us fast.
