Expert advice seems so readily available

Its almost daily that I have a customer tell me of the advice that recieved from a contractor, handyman, or another wildlife control "expert".  The reality is that almost none of these "experts' have received any formal training, or education.  Here in Michigan, anyone can get their wildlife control permit.  No, testing, no mandatory insurance, no training, just shazamm you are a wildlife control professional "endorsed" by the DNR.  Its sad that the consumer thinks anyone can do this work while protecting both the people and the resource, all while being effective.  Maybe someday this will change, but after twenty plus years of performing wildlife control services I am beginning to have my doubts.  I am proud of my certifications, training, and degrees, and in knowing that I am providing the public with biologically sound and scientifically backed solutions to their problems.

Bat proofing

The barn pictured was bat proofed 10 years ago.  It was a lot of work, but is still bat free.  Wildlife can be kept out, if good technique and thorough repairs are made.

We are doing a lot of bat seal up work in the Petoskey/Harbor Springs area.  Last week we saw our first live little brown bats.  Our favorite little migrators have returned to Northern Michigan.

Fall is upon us with the colder temperatures and spectacular fall colors.  With this, our friend, the little brown bat, will soon be migrating for the winter.

In the summertime during hot weather, homeowners may discover bats residing in their home! Attics are the most common portion of a house in which bats roost and raise their young.
