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. They can help you out with issues such as stray dogs, stray cats, spay & neuter programs, vaccinations, licenses, pet adoption, bite reports, deceased pets, lost pets, local animal complaints and to report neglected or abused animals. There is no free West Bloomfield animal control for wildlife issues.

West Bloomfield Wildlife Removal Tip: How to keep squirrels out of your house: The way to stop squirrels gaining access to your home is to make it as less attractive as you can. What are the things that the average wild animal needs? A source of water, a source of food, and somewhere warm and dry to rest it's head or raise a small family. If you spot any wild animal in your home, it's almost always going to be a mother with a little of young behind her. Squirrels are no exception. You need to take away the features the squirrels likes about your home. Don't give it a steady source of food. Don't let it gain access to your home. Make sure trees are trimmed so no branches work as drawbridges to your roof. Keep up with maintenance and fill or seal holes and repair broken guttering, sidings, vents, windows, etc. Most animals require the slightest of gaps to break in. If it's not a squirrel, it'll be something else - a bat, mouse, rat, raccoon? You need to make it difficult for the animal to get in, and taking preventative measures such as regular home inspections is what it takes. A couple of times per year, have a good once-over of your home and be critical about it too. That hole or crack might look insignificant to you but to something much smaller than you, it's an opportunity.


West Bloomfield Animal News Clip: Eastern Gray Squirrel
Often termed as a 'gem of a tree’, Eastern Grey Squirrel is one of the most scantily distributed species of squirrels, all around the globe. This particular squirrel is widely and quite aptly present in most part of North America. Although, you might find a few of these in certain parts of England, Russia etc, Arizona, USA and Eastern region of Canada are home to large numbers of Eastern Gray Squirrel.

Appearance
The Eastern Gray Squirrel, as the name advocates, is by large gray in color. The most appealing part of it is the whitish, velvety tummy. This squirrel also has a quite noticeable nose, and eyes as wide as pond. The ears are exceedingly elongated. Despite the extra length, they lack the fluffy aspect in them. The front tooth, as with almost all squirrels, is a long one and one of the most celebrated characteristic of the Eastern Gray Squirrel. The overall body length is on smaller side as well, typically ranging from 15 to 19 cm.

Biology
This particular variation of species belongs to mammalian class of animals. The Genus is thought to be a single one, namely Scuiridae. Although there might be different phylums associated with it, the order of Eastern Gray Squirrel is agreed to be Rodantia. The breeding of them is somewhat mild in nature, and hence limited amount of population in all the parts of the globe.

Lifecycle
Like all other squirrels, their life span is a matter of quite a few factors. The most basic one being the behavior and the lifestyle of the individual Eastern Gray Squirrel (we shall be looking into this in detail in 'behavior’ Para.) Those living in incarceration without any vigorous activity are expected to live longer, about 19-21 years. However, those squirrels which chose to live in open, chasing, and escaping from predators naturally live a much shorter life- precisely 10-13 years. Their reproduction lasts two 'sessions’ a year. They are often considered to be bad at finding apt mates.

Habitat
Eastern Gray Squirrels are found in abundance in woodlands of North America. The most prerequisite factor for a forest to be a habitat of them has got to be the real concentration of thick vegetation. This not only ensures their means of survival by providing enough feeding material but also make sure that they act as means of protection from their predators. Mangrove forests too attract the Eastern Gray Squirrels, particularly in areas away from the Northern regions. Some also go on to live in the unoccupied nests of the birds.

Diet
Eastern Gray Squirrel is regarded as relatively large consumers of food as compared to other North American species of the squirrels. Their diet mainly consists of what a typical omnivore would consume. Nuts, insects, bird eggs, acorns and all such stuff make a good diet for a typical Eastern Gray Squirrel. They find their diet with much ease provided they are inhabited the proper habitat.

Behavior
It is a kind of introverted animal, which is one reason they are not as good at mating as some other kinds of squirrels. Some of these prefer to live in cavity while some go on to thrill the wild life. Most of their lifespan revolves around feeding. They are less retiring when it comes to split their food with other squirrels.
