Wildlife Problems in Westland, MI

When given the opportunity to raid Westland, MI, homes for resources, nuisance pests are quick to move in. Many local suburban and urban spaces play host to wildlife searching for food, water, and lodging.

Bats Indoors

Although nine bat species live in Michigan, big brown and little brown bats are most common in buildings. To get inside, the pests may squeeze through small holes or fly into open windows. Gaps along rooflines are likely entry points for an infestation. Since Westland bats may transmit rabies or histoplasmosis, safe removal is vital.

Raccoons Near Food

Garbage, compost, and scraps attract these animals to Westland properties. Raccoon dens in chimneys and attics or under decks can cause expensive structural damage to homes. The pests may travel alone or in family groups, so it can be tough to know when the problem is truly gone.

Squirrel Issues

While looking for a place to rest, squirrels find entry in Michigan attics and garages. The rodents have a habit of gnawing at wooden beams and electrical wires, posing safety risks. They may steal birdseed from feeders and draw predators into backyards as well.

Michigan Mice

In Westland, MI, mice find shelter and food in residential areas. The rodents build nests in homes to prepare for the long Michigan winters. Warmth indoors allows these pests to reproduce rapidly during cold seasons.

Slim gaps under doors and tiny, dime-sized holes in home foundations are enough to allow a mouse inside.

Mice damage local homes by gnawing on wood and wires in addition to ripping up insulation for their nests. In kitchens, they search for food and contaminate pantry items. A mouse can transmit pathogens and parasites to humans as well as pets.

White-Tailed Deer in Westland

Michigan residents often encounter white-tailed deer in lawns. These pests seek out shrubs, vegetables, and fruit near properties. While some people enjoy their presence, they become a nuisance when they destroy plants.

Deer foraging tends to damage foliage and stunt its growth.

Fences and repellents are popular methods for keeping white-tailed deer away from Westland lawns and landscaping. However, since these animals are so common, they may keep coming back.

Other Pests in Michigan

Additional wildlife can also create trouble for Westland residents. Foxes hunt in neighborhoods and may spread illness to domestic pets. Moles, another common pest, damage lawns and landscaping with their burrows. Though neither animal typically shows hostility towards people, homeowners should avoid approaching them.
