Michigan is full of wildlife, including snakes, squirrels, raccoons, skunks, opossums, and more. Wildlife removal is a complex field. I recommend professional Grand Haven wildlife control services if you want to solve a critter problem legally and correctly. For example, we specialize in animals in the attic, which have broken into the house and almost always have a nest of baby animals. It is necessary to perform correct preventative repairs to keep pest animals a out of your house for good. We perform full building inspection, do the the repairs and we also offer attic decontamination if necessary. Rats and mice love to live in attics, and can chew wires or leave droppings. Some Grand Haven animals frequently enter homes, and correct removal is not a simple task.
DOG or CAT: If you need assistance with a domestic animal, such as a dog or a cat, you need to call your local
Ottawa County Animal Control
for assistance. They can help you out with issues such as stray dogs, stray cats, vaccinations, licenses,
pet adoption, lost pets, and more. If you have a wildlife problem, you can try calling the Ottawa County animal control, and see what they have to
say, but they will certainly not help you with a complex wildlife problem such as critters in your attic. They are a free government agency that
helps with dog and cat issues only.

Grand Haven Wildlife Tip:
How to remove snake from house - If you have a single snake in the house, remember that the animal probably doesn't want to be inside, either. Snakes can wander into a home through damaged areas of the building or through open doors and windows. Sometimes snakes enter because they are following the smell of rodents. Aside from repairing your building, you need to find out what species of snake you are dealing with. Venomous snakes in the home are not uncommon when it comes to this situation. While most states have more nonvenomous snakes than venomous, dangerous vipers are often on the move more, and are more likely to investigate a home looking for food. If the snake is venomous, close it into a room and plug the gap between the door and the floor. You do not want the snake leaving that room. Call a professional immediately. Not only can vipers be deadly, they can strike at surprising distances. Nonvenomous snakes can be handled, but care should be taken to avoid harassing them unduly. Even a harmless snake can bite, and bites often contain anticoagulants which cause profuse bleeding and prevent wound closure. If you are going to handle a nonvenomous snake, wear gloves or use a snake hook. Place the animal into a pillowcase and relocate it off the property.

Michigan authorities on critters OK badger control
Grand Haven. -- Michigan wildlife authorities on critters are going to start wildlife trapping more badgers -- at least in areas where high densities of the big felines threaten people and livestock. The badgers' amounts -- including in some areas inhabited by people -- have been increasing since 1994. Michigan voters approved a law that year prohibiting sport pest control companies from using canines to track badgers -- widely considered the most effective means of lethally trapping the big felines.
With the steady rise in the badger amounts has come increasing pressure on Michigan wildlife managers to approve more wildlife trapping of the felines in places where there are reports of conflicts with people and livestock. The Michigan estimates there are currently 5,100 badgers roaming Michigan. On Thursday, the Michigan Fish and Wildlife Commission approved a plan that calls for holding badger amounts at or above 3,000 -- the amounts at the time voters approved the wildlife trapping restrictions.
The plan gives the agency authority to lethally trap badgers as long as livestock lethally traps and complaints from people exceed 1994 levels. The authority also will be extended to 66 wildlife management areas where rodent or reptile, groundhog and bighorn sheep group of animals are struggling. The plan is scheduled to take effect later this year, after wildlife biologists draw up other target amounts of the felines where problems are occurring around the state. The local Grand Haven SPCA could not be reached for comment.
Government pest control companies, who unlike sports pest control companies are allowed to animal capture with canines, would do much of the lethally trapping. Approval of the wildlife trapping increase plan came after the panel heard several hours of testimony, most of it in opposition. Animal rights activists said the plan is based on unconfirmed reports of problems between badgers and humans. They point out there's been no recorded incident of a human being lethally trapped by a badger in Michigan.
"This plan is nothing less than the slaughter of badgers with no factual basis to support it," said Misha Dunlap of Grand Haven. Wildlife management companies called for the restriction on using canines to be scrapped, and landowners testified that the plan doesn't go far enough to protect livestock -- and people -- from the badgers. A southern Michigan rancher, Lyle Woodcock, said he's lost five calves to badger attacks in the past year. He said the big felines are beginning to threaten humans as well. Despite this, wildlife removal services are not a free service in Ottawa County.
Woodcock said that on a recent night while driving in a rural area, he saw a badger that appeared to be stalking two women who were out for an evening stroll. "The badger was right up with them," he said, but then it became startled and ran away. The head of the fish and wildlife panel defended the plan adopted Thursday, saying that "doing nothing is not an option." "We have increased amounts of both badgers and humans," commission Chairwoman Marla Rae said. "That causes increased conflict."
