Found throughout North America, badgers can be a pervasive issue in Traverse City yards. Their digging habits are certainly an issue, but the biggest issue when it comes to badgers is their aggression. They are known for approaching animals much larger than themselves, even as large as grizzly bears. If you suspect badgers on your property, call Critter Control of Traverse City — we can help. Call our office at 231.238.3553 or contact us here.

Common Badger Issues

  • Though badgers don't typically engage with humans, an abundance of preferred food sources on human-occupied land can draw in these carnivores.
  • Pet owners who live in areas with populations of badgers should act immediately to either remove the creatures or guard pets from possible encounters, as badgers can inflict serious injury to domestic animals when threatened.
