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.

There is no free Troy animal control for wildlife issues.

Troy Wildlife Removal Tip: Will a bright light or high pitch sound deterrent machine work on squirrels? The idea behind bright lights and high pitch sound deterrent machines is that they make the squirrel think human activity is behind the noise and lights, and therefore encourage them to leave your property to set up home somewhere else. The theory is good and in practice, it might work occasionally. The bad news is that if it does work at all, it'll only work for a short period of time. In most cases, using light and sound machines doesn't work at all. These machines usually require some sort of power - that'll be using your electricity, plus you'll need to use it a lot to get rid of the animal and make sure it's gone too. It's not the kind of thing you can just plug in for a day or so and make the animal go away. As soon as you remove the light or sound machine, the animal will come back and if that one doesn't, another one will. Next time it might be a raccoon, a much bigger creature with the potential to create even more damage. The only successful way to get rid of squirrels is to trap it and then remove it.

Troy Animal News Clip: Little Brown Bat- The essentials
Little brown bat, known for its distinct features, is one of the widely present bats in North America. It is used as a model animal in most labs all around the globe, and has contributed a great deal in the study of zoology.

As clearly advocated by the name, the bat is of smaller body and comprises of brown fur all around the body. The toes of little brown bat are filled with fur as well, unlike most other bats. The fur has a polished kind of look. The ears are sharp while the nose is hardy visible. It is its overall face that is quite evident and makes it distinctive as compared to other species of bats. The size of the body ranges from six to ten cm. The weight usually ranges around couple of ounces.

These bats belong to a single genus called Myotis. Little Brown Bat is a mammalian and has all those attributes one would find in a random mammalian. The family it comes from is Vespertilionidae, while the subfamily is called Myotine.

The life span of an average little brown bat is considerably longer one. It could ranger form 5 to 10 years when in captivity. While being more vigilant, the life span could be at most eight years. The little brown bat sleeps for around twenty hours a day, and hence a nocturnal animal. The mating lasts for about 2 to 3 months. The gestation period is slightly longer. This particular species of bats usually gives birth to a single offspring at an instance. Twins are an exception but unlike other animals it does not give birth to dozens of babies. A baby bat would be able to take flight in about 14 days from its birth.

The habitat for the little brown bat could vary from weather to weather, season to season. In cold times it would like to find a hibernating place- a grotto or quarry would be more than suitable for the purpose. In summer a lake or other rich body of water makes a good habitat for them. They also inhibit domestic houses provided there is not much human presence- most often you could find a large colony of them in garages etc. Sewerage lines are also subject to their occupation.

Little brown bat, by large is a carnivorous animal. Most people mistake it to be an omnivore, but studies conducted have proven the numerous theories entirely wrong. It feeds on flies, spiders, baby frogs, bugs, small birds and grasshoppers etc. The most bizarre thing regarding the feeding patter on this bat is the ability to use its high-pitch voice to detect the prey. This is called echolocation. Its prey finds it quite difficult to escape from this advanced feature of hunting.

As hinted above, the bats sleep for most part of the day, and once awake it goes into hunt of prey during summer. As far as the winters are concerned, these bats go into long periods of hibernation and don't feed themselves at all. They are good at restoring energy for long spans.
