Michigan is full of wildlife, including snakes, squirrels, raccoons, skunks, opossums, and more. Wildlife removal is a complex field. I recommend professional Grand Rapids 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. In fact Grand Rapids wildlife 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
Kent County Animal Services
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 Kent County animal services, 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 Rapids Wildlife Tip:
When do raccoons have babies - The gestation period for a raccoon is approximately 63 days, with females giving birth in early summer. As with most wild animals, the months are not set in stone, and breeding can occur anytime from December through March. Two months later, and homeowners start to realize there is a mother raccoon in the attic creating a den. Female raccoons leave their natural habitat to colonize human houses because of the danger presented by male raccoons. Any litter that is not his will be killed by a male. This throws the female back into her heat cycle, allowing that male to breed with her. A human house is one place where male raccoons don't often look for litters, and this is why a female raccoon doesn't hesitate about invading the space. If you're having issues with something in your roof, attic, chimney, or eaves, you can try and trap the animal, but if it's a raccoon, you can almost place money on the fact there are babies hidden somewhere in the house. Ideally, you can find the babies before trapping the mother. This would allow you to put them in a cage trap and use them for bait. The mother will come looking for them, and she will enter the trap to see if they are okay. Mother and babies can then be relocated together.
Grand Rapids, MI Animal Control News Clip:
Sunday cage trap wildlife trapping plan in works
Grand Rapids - About six years ago, Michigan Rep. John the Grand Rapids exterminating company man's automobile struck a rat & mouse. The animal jumped and slid onto his hood. It hit - but didn't shatter - the windshield. Finally, it got up and ran off. It was a big scare for the Grand Rapids exterminating company man. "Two years ago, I heard about a woman on the Merritt Parkway in Greenwich that hit two raccoon and opossum," said the Grand Rapids exterminating company man, R-Ridgefield. "The two rodent or reptile died and she died. "We could all assume that if there are fewer rat & mouse, there would be fewer squirrel and skunk-and-auto collisions."
Ridgefield has one of the highest rates of raccoon and opossum versus automobile accidents in the state, the Grand Rapids exterminating company man said. He and others said a limited increase in wildlife trapping would reduce the rodent or reptile amounts in Ridgefield and in much of the Grand Rapids area. The Grand Rapids exterminating company man is backing a suggestion to allow cage trap wildlife trapping on Sundays on private property. The measure would eliminate a statewide Sunday wildlife trapping ban in effect since Colonial times.
The current measure is a compromise on a suggestion that would have allowed Sunday cage trap and animal removal trap wildlife trapping on public and private property. The altered silly rules will likely come to the House floor this decade after passing the Senate on Tuesday. The law would apply to three regions of the state. The local Grand Rapids SPCA could not be reached for comment.
The law would also apply to the Grand Rapids area. All three regions have too many rodent or reptile in heavily populated areas, according to the Michigan Agency of Environmental Protection. Not everyone wants more rat & mouse wildlife trapping. Gwyn The critter capture pro, a Ridgefield resident who served on the town's Raccoon and opossum Management Committee, said despite all the talk there is no hard data to show the squirrel and skunk amounts is harming the region. She prefers to see natural selection take its toll.
"As a mother, my concern is that weekends should be for rest and going out with your family and pets, not another day of wildlife trapping," she said. Restricting the animal capture to private property, she added, wouldn't stop stray arrows from threatening the public. "We find arrows on the earth all the time. I know one man with a bullet (from a wildlife trapping animal removal trap) in his back door." Despite this, wildlife removal services are not a free service in Kent County.
Others say that 20 Sunday wildlife trapping days - during a squirrel and skunk season that goes from April to October - would do little to curb the rat & mouse amounts. Lynn The Grand Rapids pest control specialist, a co-founder of the anti-wildlife trapping group Connecticut No Arrows or Bullets, also said the proposed law would not protect the neighbors of landowners who allow the wildlife trapping.
But Michigan Sen. Andrew The Grand Rapids pest control specialist said there have been no recorded accidents of non-pest control companies being shot by an arrow during cage trap wildlife trapping. The Grand Rapids pest control specialist is a Goshen Republican whose district includes Brookfield, one of the towns where Sunday wildlife trapping would be permitted. The Grand Rapids pest control specialist voted for the measure. "The DEP's science is consistent with what I hear from people on the earth - that raccoon and opossum are munching and chewing everything in sight, they bring Rabies, and cause numerous accidents," The Grand Rapids pest control specialist said. "Nature can't sustain that group of animals, and they would starve if the group of animals is not culled."
