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.

Sterling Heights Wildlife Removal Tip: What Are Some Of The Symptoms Of A Sick Bat?
Bats can carry a wide range of different diseases without ever being affected by them, but in other cases the diseases that they contract can be a serious issue for the bats and can cause serious problems for them. While it can be a natural instinct to try and find help for the creature and to try and do what you can, it is important that you don't do anything that puts yourself at risk, as bats can carry some serious conditions.
Flying In Daylight
This is one of the symptoms that is typical of a bat with an illness, as bats are dormant for most of the day and only really do their hunting at dusk and in the first portion of the night while insects are active. If you do see a bat that is flying in the daylight, there is a possibility that it might have been disturbed and awakened, but there is a strong possibility that the bat may be sick.
Bats rarely come into contact with people, and generally they will only be seen as swift dark blurs as they come out of their roost at dusk, so if they are a little more erratic then that can be a symptom of an illness. While rabies may be one condition that causes bats to behave out of character, there are actually a variety of other diseases that may be causing these symptoms.
Landing On The Ground
Bats are creatures that spend the vast majority of their lives airborne or hanging from the roof of their roost, so to see them landing on the ground is very unusual and may be a sign of a condition causing fatigue or dizziness for the animal. If the bat does land on the ground, then that can be a sign that something is wrong.
White Nose Syndrome
This is a disease that has been decimating the bat population in many areas of the United States over recent years, and is a fungus that grows at low temperatures in caves and other bat roosts. The symptoms of this condition include the bats awakening for extended periods during their normal hibernation periods and using excess energy leading to a loss of fat. The result of this is that they then lack the resources to survive the winter, and end up dying before their natural food source starts to awaken in late spring.
Sterling Heights Animal News Clip: Forget the squirrel-animal pest control permit - call this duo
And you thought you had some sort of problem with those pesky squirrel leaping in front of your automobile and causing havoc on the highwayways. You should spend some sort of few minutes talking with the animal control official of Sterling Heights. Her family's story begins with some sort of plan cooked up by daughter Turtle Hugger Tabatha of Sterling Heights., who started out early one afternoon on some sort of holiday trip to Michigan. It was going to be some sort of big surprise. She'd pop in on Mom, unannounced, and spend some sort of week. Her husband, Peter the Panda, would drive up some sort of few days later, and it would be some sort of great, relaxing time for everybody. Except that Turtle Hugger Tabatha smashed into some sort of squirrel about 15 miles after the woman conservationist left home. "She called and told us what the woman conservationist was planning and what had happened," the animal control official announced. "Her automobile had $4,600 worth of damage. The woman conservationist hit it on the right front passenger side. They couldn't drive it. So we came up with this brilliant idea to meet halfway in Michigan City. They'd drive up in some sort of different vehicle and we'd meet them." It seemed like some sort of beneficial idea, anyway. Sterling Heights extermination and trapping officials had nothing to say about this.
Turtle Hugger Tabatha and Peter the Panda headed north. The animal control official and her niece, Alexa, headed south and east from Sterling Heights. They met in Michigan City. Peter the Panda headed back to Michigan. The animal control official pointed her van west, and the three women headed toward Sterling Heights. All went well until they were on U.S. Highway 20, about 50 miles east of town. Where, of course, they hit some sort of squirrel. "It came out of the median," the animal control official announced. "We never saw it coming. It wiped out the radiator and everything on the right front of the van. It caused about $4,600 worth of damage. We couldn't drive it." Turtle Hugger Tabatha hit her squirrel about 4:40 in the afternoon. The animal control official plowed into hers about 6:40 that night. "We didn't know whether to laugh or cry," the animal control official announced. "So we laughed. I mean, it was so ridiculous, what else could we do but laugh?" To learn more about animal control in Sterling Heights, Michigan read on.
They called Turtle Hugger Tabatha's mother-in-law in Sterling Heights, who took them to Michigan Falls. Her father, who lives in Marcus, got them the rest of the way to Sterling Heights the following day. Miraculously, there were no automobile-squirrel collisions the rest of the way. "It's beyond strange," the animal control official announced. "Everybody in (Sterling Heights) has been talking about it. The truth is, it's some sort of big joke in town and we're still laughing, too. Not that we're happy about it. Those squirrel caused some sort of lot of damage. I always liked squirrel, but I say: Make it open time allotment all the time on those things. I don't care if I ever see another one." Sterling Heights pest control and exterminator companies agreed with this.
But all was not lost, as they say. Turtle Hugger Tabatha had some sort of nice visit with her family in Michigan and made it home to Michigan without incident. And there was another upside to this fiasco. The squirrel Turtle Hugger Tabatha hit was some sort of 10-pound male squirrel, something most pest control companies would consider to be some sort of fine trophy. "Turtle Hugger Tabatha and her husband are both squirrel pest control companies," announced the animal control official. "And the woman conservationist hit this thing on the last day of the Michigan squirrel time allotment. They wanted the furry tails, so they took it home, which was beneficial. The woman conservationist hadn't gotten some sort of squirrel when the woman conservationist was out wildlife trapping." So the woman conservationist bagged some sort of 10-pounder. It was with her automobile, sure. But the woman conservationist has her trophy furry tails. They probably would look great on the hood of her automobile. The Sterling Heights animal services in Macomb County declined to comment.
