Pest & Wildlife Problems in Traverse City, MI

Foxes near Homes

Traverse City, MI, has a relatively cool climate and acres of forests perfect for foxes to thrive. The pests enter neighborhoods to find food and water. Foxes will also den under porches or sheds during their mating season.

A fox will eat just about anything. Leftover pet food and unsecured garbage often bring them to Traverse City lawns. They may bite or become aggressive when defending their young but do not pose a threat to humans if left alone. Foxes cause damage by getting into trash cans and digging under fences.

Bats in Michigan

Wilderness areas in Michigan attract bats, though habitat loss may drive them into suburban or urban environments. Bats that get into attics or garages cause problems for Traverse City homeowners.

These animals can carry rabies, a disease that spreads through bites and scratches. In addition, bat guano encourages harmful Histoplasma fungus to grow in homes and yards. This mold is more likely to develop in areas like Michigan that have warm and humid summer weather.
