Top-Rated Muskrat Removal in Michigan
Throughout Michigan, muskrats are found in lakes, ponds, marshes, rivers, streams, and drainage ditches. Muskrats burrow to create dens in riverbanks. When stepped on or driven over, these tunnels cause the bank’s ground to erode and cave in. At worst, muskrats can create property devastation and flooding issues. This makes them a nuisance when they choose to settle near humans.

When Muskrats Make Trouble
As a semi-aquatic rodent, muskrats are found in or near lakes, ponds, and other bodies of water. Although muskrats are generally vegetarians, in ponds with little vegetation, they will also eat other aquatic life. They will also venture onto the ground to eat fresh growth on shrubs or terrorize nearby gardens.
Their burrowing leads to the destruction of riverbanks and other landscaping along waterways. The tunnels have little overhead support and are very likely to collapse when stepped on or driven over, resulting in injuries and vehicle damage. Muskrats can undermine banks and cause the surrounding land to deteriorate, causing drainage and flooding issues, and expensive property damage.
