In Michigan there are nine different species of squirrels. These include the Eastern Fox squirrel, Easter gray squirrel, red squirrel, flying squirrels, least chipmunk, eastern chipmunk, thirteen-lined ground squirrel. One common misconception is about flying squirrels which do not actually fly. They have a loose membrame of skin that is attached between their front and back legs which helps them glide from tree to tree.
From mid-December and early January and again in June is the time period that squirrels typically breed. During this breeding season, are when mating chases take place which can be noisy. One or more males will pursue females through trees. When squirrels are not breeding they are solitary. Most litters have between one and eight pups. After two months the youngest are weaned and set on their own. The normal diet of squirrels includes nuts, seeds, fruits, flowers, bugs and insects. If you own a home or business in West Michigan you also know that squirrels are frequent visitors.
