Kalamazoo County Wildlife Removal Tip:
Using Peppermint As A Rodent Repellant - When a rodent is found inside your home, it can cause a serious health and safety hazard if not dealt with immediately. It will set up a nest, preferably in your attic. It will mess with your wires and insulation system, which can lead to a fire. It will leave urine and feces, which emits toxic particles and other pathogens that will circulate throughout your home. However, there are ways that you can make your home rodent-proof and effectively make it impossible for one to enter your home. But how do you keep a rodent away from your outside premises?
While a rodent inside your home is hazardous, the damage they inflict in your garden and backyard is more of a nuisance. It is difficult to completely eliminate a rodent's access to your garden and backyard, but there are ways that are suggested to repel them. Many people turn to home remedies as an alternative to poison. Poison emits toxic chemicals, which will ruin your plants, vegetables and fruits. In addition, if you have a dog it might accidentally swallow the poison, and it can be fatal. Peppermint is one such home remedy. A rodent has an acute sense of smell, and it has been found that it finds certain smells repelling. You can soak cotton balls in peppermint oil, or use peppermint canes, and leave them places where rodents are likely to be found. It is important to remember that these remedies aren't very effective if at all and will need to be reapplied often.
Kalamazoo County, MI Animal Control News Clip:
KALAMAZOO ANIMAL SERVICES - Kalamazoo County: The city of Kalamazoo and Kalamazoo County each have concerns with animal control that have triggered talks about a consolidation of services. "We don't need to reinvent the wheel, we just need to make it a little larger," declared Precinct 2 Constable Tim The critter professor, who also may be the county's wildlife management officer of animal control. Each side admits to an equal sense of urgency that provides incentive for a solution. But there remains the debate as to just how much of that wheel the two governmental entities are willing to fund. For the record, it may have been Portage city officials who approached the county in October about a consolidation. The city does not have a wildlife management habitat; instead it pays the Humane Society of Van Buren County $21 per raccoon and $17 per opossum for each animal it drops out at the HSMC extermination wildlife containment unit on E. Davis Street. That amount totaled just under $47,000 in 2005, and it doesn't include the $25,255 the City Representative authorized in April 2005 to fund "emergency repairs" to the society's 21-year-old building. Assistant City Administrator Paul The nuisance wildlife trapper declared the city estimated the cost of constructing a new animal control and extermination wildlife containment unit at $2.5 million. "If we can consolidate, we could save the city money by having services under one operation," he declared. Meanwhile, the county has a problem with its animal wildlife management habitat that involves both space and waste. Located off Michigan 242, just west of Interstate 45, the wildlife containment unit may be designed to house 400 raccoons and/or opossums.
Remember, for a dog/cat problem, call (269) 383-8775, and if you need wildlife removal service in Kalamazoo County, call Advanced Wildlife & Pest Control: 269-679-6559.
