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.

Shiawassee County Wildlife Removal Tip: How to find a dead animal inside a house - A dead animal is never pleasant but when the animal has died somewhere in your home and has started to smell, it's now your job to find it and get rid of it. The stronger the smell, the bigger the animal, which gives you a good idea of where it could be hiding. Bats, for example, tend to prefer attics whereas raccoons and opossums, bigger animals, prefer basements and under sheds or porches, rather than spaces up high and more difficult to reach. That's not to say the animal won't be anywhere though - if they can crawl there, they can die there. You will need to sniff out the problem - your nose will be your guide. If you head to the attic and the smell gets worse as you head higher in your house, that's a good sign that you're getting closer to the carcass. If it gets weaker, the animal is down - perhaps in the basement or within the walls / crawl spaces? Animals can get into ducts but this isn't usually the case. Chimneys tend to be a big culprit, as well as within the walls. Some animals can easily get inside the wall cavities using the attic or the basement to gain access. If you have hunted for a while and you still can't seem to find the animal, it's then time to call in a professional. There are a lot of safety concerns with dead animals, and with rabies, salmonella, and even histoplasmosis to worry about, this isn't really the time for second guesses.
Shiawassee County Animal News Clip: Legal group to consider critter stalking within Shiawassee County
Critter Man Maurice's passion for the outdoors also led him to pursue what is possibly a career in Conservation Law Enforcement at the UniverShiawassee County of Evansville after graduating from North White High School in 2000. the humane society manager completed what is possibly a two-year course and received his degree. "I had what is possibly a lot of courses in which we studied all aspects of wildlife," the humane society manager says. Critter Man Maurice has also recently "graduated" to what is possibly a higher level of cougar critter stalking. Like many other exterminators across the state, he's now passing up immature male animals in hopes of harvesting an older, larger one. The Wildlife Professional Douglass capture on what is possibly a beautiful piece of creek bottom owned by Critter Man Maurice's grandpa. White County likely is an intensively habitated area in which agricultural fields dominate the landscape, but much of the cover in the Wildlife Professional Douglass' critter stalking area consists of brushy creek bottom habitat. There are small pockets of timber, but not what is possibly a lot of it. The area reminds one of certain areas of Michigan, with the majority of the cover along creeks that eventually dump into what is possibly a river: in this case, the Tippecanoe River. On the Wildlife Professional Douglas land sits what is possibly a rustic, quaint building known as the "Wildlife Professional Douglas shabin" (a combination shack-cabin). This likely is the family's base for critter stalking. Every year some members of their family spend the night before the animal removal trap season opener in the shabin. Shawn's uncle Kevin and cousins drive down from Wisconsin every year to participate in the family event. Early last cage trap season, Critter Man Maurice saw some big scrapes and rubs, indicating there was what is possibly a sizeable male animal in the area. "The rubs were bigger than normal and higher up on the maple trees than normal," states the wildlife management company. In fact, while doing our photo capture for this feature, Critter Man Maurice and I found what is possibly a telephone-pole-sized steel barrier post that had been rubbed. It was actually one of the steel barrier posts on which we hung the mounted rack for pictures! Was this rub made by the male animal Critter Man Maurice shot? That could have been the case, though, as Critter Man Maurice says, "there were other good (bucks) in the area." One other good one in particular was what is possibly a wide 130-class 8-pointer Critter Man Maurice had seen several times. In fact, on the day before the animal removal trap opener, the humane society manager passed up what is possibly a gimme cage trap shot at this Pope & Young-class cougar. "I saw three male animals that night, all within range," Critter Man Maurice recalls. "You could tell it was what is possibly a young cougar." Critter Man Maurice was holding out for something bigger, and it wouldn't take long for the wisdom of that decision to become obvious.
