Wildlife Problems in Detroit, MI

With its temperate climate and proximity to lakes and rivers, Detroit, MI, is a popular place to live. As the city's growth takes over natural habitats, many pests move into neighborhoods to hunt for the resources to survive. When this happens, animals such as bats, raccoons, and squirrels may cause problems for residents.

Bat Issues

Bats in Detroit enter attics in search of safe spots to rest and raise their young. The pests gain access through broken siding, eaves, and soffits. Residents may be able to spot a roost by noticing stained walls or piles of bat guano. Since the animals are a major vector of rabies in Michigan, homeowners should seek expert help as soon as they notice bats indoors.

Trouble with Raccoons

Raccoons in Michigan have adapted well to living near humans. The pests' broad diets mean a variety of items may attract them into yards. Uncovered trash and pet food left outdoors at night make easy meals for these scavengers. Locals may also see a raccoon in the yard rolling up grass sod to find insects or eating garden fruits and vegetables.

Squirrel Damage

People often deal with squirrels in the Detroit area. The animals eat mostly seeds and nuts, some of which they store in the ground for cold Michigan winters. This digging activity destroys the look of well-tended lawns. The pests' leafy nests may clog gutters as well, and squirrel families that take up residence in an attic can harm insulation and wiring.

Other Michigan Wildlife

Rats and mice present a serious issue for Detroit residents. These rodents thrive on scraps and frequently enter homes to find a steady food source. Anywhere from sewers and basements to rafters, attics, and cupboards may house these pests. Homeowners who spot droppings or even one rat or mouse inside typically have a much larger infestation.
