Wild animals may not think about things in the same way humans do, but they surely act as though they do. At the height of winter, some animals sneak into your home to escape the cold and snowy weather, protection and safety that we take for granted. Animals have the same instinct to seek shelter as we do, and some of them
Squirrels are all over Minnesota. In fact, the gray squirrel is one of the most common critters in the entire state. You will frequently see them in your yard, darting across the road, in parks, on trails and in wooded areas. They have a trademark bushy tail and are not generally aggressive.

Owning a home can be a great joy – but also a great burden at times. One thing that many people cite as the stress of owning a home is the unexpected maintenance and repairs. It can seem like there is an endless list of home improvement projects that need to be done. Repairs and home improvement projects can be done at your own pace, but what happens when you suspect that there is a wild animal that has taken refuge in a part of your home? There is no way to plan for this type of stress. It may concern you on many levels. Wild animals can cause damage to the area that they live in, they can spread disease and they are certainly not clean and may leave droppings and waste behind.
Mice are unwelcome guests in just about any home. However, in the winter months in Minnesota, they look for warmth and food because that is so difficult to find outdoors. If they can find even the smallest crack or hole, mice will make their way inside your home. This is unnerving for a homeowner for many reasons. Mice carry disease and can cause serious damage in your home if not taken care of quickly. The team at Minnesota Wild Animal Management Inc. can help you prevent mice from entering and get rid of them if they do.
If you have a raccoon in your home, it’s imperative that you take action quickly. In terms of pests and unwanted guests in your space, raccoons may be at the top of your list. They are savages. Even just outside of your property, they will knock over your garbage cans, tear up your lawn, terrorize your pets and leave feces that may carry parasites that can be transferred to you or your pets. So, can you even fathom the damage done inside your home? Racoons like to take refuge in your chimney, attics, and even under the house.
Whether we realize it or not, wild animals are all around us. In fact, we have actually invaded their habitat and they have had to adapt to our presence. With the consistent growth in the area, wild animals have been pushed into smaller areas of undeveloped land and over time, interactions with humans have increased. The professionals at Minnesota Wild Animal Management work to find balance between this knowledge and the understanding that close interaction with humans is problematic.
