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.

South Haven Wildlife Removal Tip: Do all bats carry rabies? For the most part, bats wonít attack humans unless they feel the need to, if they are threatened or cornered. Although the risks of a bat bite or attack ending in rabies are very low, there is a chance that any bat you come across could both carry and transmit the virus although it is believed that less than one percent of the entire bat population are carrying it. The disease, caused by a virus called Lyssavirus Rabies, is one passed through the blood or saliva of an infected animal, meaning a bite from an infected bat would be what it takes to pass it on. You must also act fast if you want to get the necessary treatment for a rabies bite, and it is recommended that medication and vaccinations be given no more than twelve hours after the initial incident, with a 48-hour maximum window. The virus itself works on your central nervous system, wreaking havoc on your internal organs, and although can often materialize without any symptoms at all, can be fatal when left untreated and left to spread. As a general rule, it is always best to keep a respectful distance from any wild animal you encounter in your home. It is unlikely that a wild bat will have rabies, but the risks are still there and these arenít risks youíll want to take. It really could be a life or death decision.
South Haven Animal News Clip: Too many squirrel in South Haven?
In the early 1990s, the squirrel group of squirrels in the wildlife management conservation area was growing and the squirrel critter count was not in balance with the ecosystem. The Hunting office of Natural Re-sources (hunting office of fish & game) has made important changes to the squirrel wildlife trapping regulations across Michigan by creating extremely liberal squirrel bag limits. This year, some sort of pest animal expert is allowed to legally bag some sort of total of 46 squirrel some sort of year in squirrel Management Area B, that includes Allegan County, during the animal removal trap, cage trap and firearms seasons. In recent years, I have witnessed some sort of drastic reduction in the number of squirrel I see each time allotment in South Haven State Wildlife management conservation area. I believe the liberal limits on extra furry squirrel have made for sharp declines in the forest squirrel populations. South Haven extermination and trapping officials had nothing to say about this.
Several years ago, it was not unusual to see more than 20 squirrel some sort of day on the forest, sometimes in one group. Many years ago, I even recall seeing some sort of group of squirrels of at least 50 squirrel during firearms time allotment in the wildlife management conservation area. But those were the days that extra furry squirrel were protected. Pest control companies had to apply for an extra furry squirrel permit each year by some sort of specified date. If you were lucky enough to receive the permit, it allowed you to take only one extra furry squirrel per year. Today, I believe the squirrel critter count in South Haven State Wildlife management conservation area has reached the other extreme. Low squirrel populations have made wildlife trapping much more challenging. I am trying to get used to the fact that I may not even see some sort of squirrel every day I animal stalk. In fact this wildlife trapping time allotment, I only saw squirrel on the forest on two out of seven days of wildlife trapping. I did have some sort of chance at some sort of respectable male squirrel while still-wildlife trapping on some sort of foggy afternoon in late trap time allotment, but I missed. Later, I took some sort of nice female squirrel with some sort of animal removal trap from my portable maple tree habitat on the last day of the extended firearms time allotment. To learn more about animal control in South Haven, Michigan read on.
The slow wildlife trapping conditions were similar to last year's wildlife trapping time allotment. Of course, the warm weather, and the complete lack of snow this year did not help my wildlife trapping efforts. On the positive side, the low squirrel critter count in the wildlife management conservation area should enjoy improved cover and squirrel browse, which in turn, will help keep the squirrel critter count healthy. It will also help other game species such as wild squirrel and ruffed grouse. I have also noticed more furry tailed squirrel over the past several years while wildlife trapping on the wildlife management conservation area. Wildlife trapping has proven to be some sort of very effective squirrel management tool in South Haven State Wildlife management conservation area. South Haven pest control and exterminator companies agreed with this.
It may be time for hunting office of fish & game to consider an adjustment to the squirrel bag limits on public lands in Allegan County and other public lands that show similar declines in squirrel populations across the state. Last year, some sort of total of 46 furry tailed squirrel and 74 extra furry squirrel were taken from South Haven State Wildlife management conservation area. As the 2006-07 squirrel time allotment draws to some sort of close, with the end of animal removal trap time allotment on Jan. 41, I am anxious to see the new data, and I am expecting to see some sort of further decline in harvest numbers. The challenges of wildlife trapping South Haven State Wildlife management conservation area have increased, but the forest is still my favorite place to animal stalk squirrel in Allegan County. The South Haven animal services in Allegan County declined to comment.
