Wildlife Problems in Canton, MI

The township of Canton, MI, is home to a fast-growing population and located on the outskirts of Detroit. Since the area is near both rural, wooded land and a large urban center, a wide variety of wildlife pests use local houses to find shelter or food. Common nuisances include bats, raccoons, squirrels, moles, and coyotes.

Bat Health Hazards

All that bats need to enter Canton houses is a tiny crack. Even a half-inch hole, unscreened vent, or piece of loose siding will do. Once inside, they often roost in attics and accumulate guano. Sharing space with a bat colony is not only messy and unpleasant but dangerous. Infected animals can transmit the rabies virus to people via bites and scratches.

Squirrel Neighbors

Telephone lines and branches that overhang roofs are two major ways squirrels gain entry into Michigan homes. A nest indoors means residents may hear loud squeaking and chewing sounds as the pests gnaw on wires or wood. Outside, a squirrel infestation may dig up turf to bury caches of acorns and nuts.

Raccoons near People

Raccoons move into Canton communities for easy access to meals and shelter. More than just a nuisance, they present health concerns, like raccoon roundworm. This parasite can grow in the pest's intestines and pass through the droppings they leave behind in yards, sandboxes, and attics. Accidental ingestion of roundworm eggs can lead to serious illness in humans.

Other Michigan Wildlife

Moles and coyotes are also common around Canton homes. A mole is a lawn pest that damages the soft soil of yards, gardens, and flowerbeds while it searches for grubs and insects to eat. On the other hand, a coyote is a large predator that can endanger cats or small dogs. Bring pets indoors at night to avoid attracting these animals.
