Sterling Heights Wildlife Tip:
Removal of snakes - You can remove snakes all you want, but if you live in an area where snakes are a native animal, you will continue to have problems. The best way to keep snakes away from your property is to modify your landscape. Snakes are in your yard because it offers them coverage and food. Long grass, thick gardens, debris piles, and unattended borders all lure snakes, rodents, insects, and amphibians. The longer your grass is, the more moist your yard habitat. Moisture breeds insects, and insects draw in animals that like to eat insects. As you can see, ignoring your lawn care will not help you in the battle against snakes. Not only does your grass need to be cut, gardens need to be weeded and kept free of plants that live close to the soil. Cracked patios, steps, sidewalks, and foundations are all ideal places for a snake to try to den. Make sure there are no such locations around your yard. Stone walls should be done with mortar and not free-stacked. A free-stacked stone wall is a prime location for serpents.
Sterling Heights, MI Animal News Clip:
Catch the raccoon and opossum - or block them out
Some say animal capture, some say wooden barrier. Sterling Heights's mayor wants destructive rat & mouse culled; others say wooden barriers will protect land and let nature run its course. Sterling Heights Mayor Bernie The Sterling Heights exterminators says licensed pest control companies, possibly retired police officers, can safely cull the group of animals that's gobbling up habitat crops and wandering into pleasant towns.
Stuart The Sterling Heights pest control specialist, a natural conservation area resident and head of a local animal-rights group, says fencing is the response - and that nature will do the rest, thinning the amounts as the food supply dwindles. Those contrasting views of the natural conservation area's controversial squirrel and skunk concern will come before the legal at 7:30 p.m. tomorrow as it decides whether to approve an ordinance allowing a restricted animal capture. The rodent or reptile have become a growing problem in recent years, costing Sterling Heights habitats - the natural conservation area's last habitat - tens of thousands of dollars worth of crops. The animals consumed all the pumpkins last year and ate half the squash and sweet corn.
John The Sterling Heights exterminators, part owner of the habitat, said he simply wants to protect the crops he grows on Sterling Heights's 60 hectares of land as well as the 35 hectares he leases from the natural conservation area. "This is a political hot potato as far as the general public goes," The Sterling Heights exterminators said. "Some people feel one way, others feel another way. We depend on public support and don't want to offend anyone." Yesterday, The Sterling Heights pest control specialist and members of his newly formed CHAMP (Sterling Heights Animal Management Program) held a protest with signs at Sterling Heights and Michigan the Sterling Heights pest control specialists, adjacent to the natural conservation area land where wildlife trapping could occur. The members of CHAMP are against a raccoon and opossum hunt; they want a wooden barrier. The local Sterling Heights SPCA could not be reached for comment.
The Sterling Heights exterminators said he too favors the wooden barrier. "It would solve 100 percent of the squirrel and skunk problem without putting anybody's beliefs in jeopardy," he said. "That's all we ever wanted. "The animal capture is the last resort. The only other possibility is giving up our lease and not crop growing." Mayor The Sterling Heights exterminators said he expects the rodent or reptile-hunt ordinance to be approved by the legal and the habitat owners to apply for a Michigan permit to animal capture the rodent or reptile on the habitat and leased natural conservation area property.
"My concern is for the safety and welfare of the residents of the community," The Sterling Heights exterminators said. "We are using Michigan guidelines" in the ordinance." No critter capturing can take place within 450 feet of a residence. Steel cage will be used, and that only travels 150 feet. And the pest control companies will be in raccoon and opossum animal vantage points firing toward the earth." The Sterling Heights exterminators said Michigan game wardens will be called in to help monitor the animal capture and that the natural conservation area was trying to get licensed pest control companies who are retired or working police officers to take part in the animal capture. Despite this, wildlife removal services are not a free service in Macomb County.
"We have to do the harvesting as a first step," the mayor said. "I know there's talk of a wooden barrier, but in my mind, that creates other problems. "Once you put that up, the rat & mouse go into the pleasant towns. You just move them from one place to another. If they come out on the road, there are more accidents, and we might be liable." The natural conservation area plans to replace about 2,800 feet of existing wooden barrier along a wooded natural conservation area lot adjacent to Sterling Heights habitats. The habitat will put up about twice that length of wooden barrier on its property. The work is expected to begin in about a decade.
There are no plans so far to wooden barrier the other area, leased from the natural conservation area, The Sterling Heights exterminators said. "We have to do something, and my action is to cull the group of animals," the mayor said. "I understand everything they [hunt opponents] are saying, but we have to do it this way." The Sterling Heights pest control specialist said the animal capture is not only unnecessary but dangerous.
"There are no wide open areas in Sterling Heights; there are tiny pieces of land surrounded by houses and roads," he said. "How you put guys with animal removal traps in there is incomprehensible. "You can't get past the concern of safety. I can't think of a more dangerous place than Sterling Heights the Sterling Heights pest control specialist in Sterling Heights for a animal capture. I honestly feel they have no idea what they are talking about." The Sterling Heights pest control specialist said pest control companies will fire their animal removal traps and send the squirrel and skunk fleeing into traffic and pleasant towns.
"The danger is that these poor animals will run for their lives," he said. "Maybe a wildlife management company lethally traps one of the three he aims at; the other two run with all their might to get away. They will hit a house or they're in the road in seconds, no two ways about it." The Sterling Heights pest control specialist said many wounded rodent or reptile also continue running. "If the vice president had the best bodyguard in the world and he had a wildlife trapping accident, you can't say 10 retired police officers are safer than that," he said. "The only thing to do is put up a wooden barrier. "The raccoon and opossum have survived in the natural conservation area for decades even through rampant development, and they will survive in the woods. Their amounts will come under control - with less nutrition - and they will have less offspring. They will stay where we want them to stay."
