What are some of the most common wildlife issues that homeowners face in your area? 

We're plagued with

How do the seasons affect wildlife activity in your area? 

Different seasons bring different animal problems. Colder weather brings home invaders like mice and rats. Warmer weather brings yard dwellers like moles. Spring brings us baby squirrels and raccoons, while summer brings baby bats. 

What are some common signs of nuisance wildlife activity? 

  • Muddy paw prints on structural supports 

  • Noise in the attic, walls, between floors, or in the chimney  

  • Animal droppings and holes in the lawn 

Do you have any wildlife prevention tips for residents in your area? 

Make sure all animals are out of your structure before you seal things up. The last thing you want to do is to force an animal into your living space because it can't exit your home. You also don't want trapped animals dying in your home. 

When should homeowners call Critter Control? 

Homeowners should call at the first sign of animal activity. 


Common Wildlife Problems in Grand Rapids, MI   

Grand Rapids is the second-most populated city in Michigan behind only Detroit. In addition to its sizable population, Grand Rapids’ location on the Grand River and near the Great Lakes means a variety of pests make the city their home. Here are a few of the most common pests we encounter in the Grand Rapids area. 


These pests often spend the cold Grand Rapids winters in barns, sheds, or even home attics. Bats are capable of transmitting rabies to humans or pets through a bite, and a bat infestation should be addressed immediately. They also leave droppings that can quickly accumulate and cause property damage. 


Michigan is home to nine species of flying squirrels and tree squirrels. These pests gather in yards looking for seeds or insects to eat. Squirrels often tear screens and remove vents to get indoors. A squirrel intrusion can be identified by ripped insulation, urine stains on floors, and gnawed wiring in walls. 


Raccoons commonly raid garbage cans and invade Grand Rapids homes to nest in chimneys or attics. These pests also transmit rabies through their blood and saliva. Raccoon droppings pose their own threat to humans and pets, often containing dangerous roundworm parasites. 


Skunks are generally docile creatures, but when threatened, they can spray a foul-scented musk from their anal glands. In addition to this unpleasant defense, skunks are the most common carriers of rabies. Grand Rapids dog owners should be wary of letting pets wander freely when skunks are nearby.
