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.

Busy time of the year

Raccoons and skunks have given birth a few weeks back, adding huge challenges to removing them safely and humanely.  Mole activity is in full swing and we are catching many.  Busy time of year for a Wildlife Control Operator.

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.
