No one wants to think about mice living inside your home or within the walls. It can give you the creeps just thinking about these little creatures scratching around, not to mention if you saw one scurry across the floor in front of you. Yikes!
The reality is that mice within residences are all too common. This time of year, as the weather gets colder, mice are looking for warm places to settle in and make a home for the winter. They want to establish
Many people have chance encounters with wild animals every day. In most cases, the animal is just as scared, if not more so, than the person. And, in many instances, the animal simply walks/crawls off in the other direction. But what happens when the animal seeks refuge and shelter from nature’s elements within the confines of your home or business?
Raccoons are cute to look at in pictures and may be even to witness from a distance, but when you have a chance encounter with one in the middle of the night, it can be scary! Sometimes the noises that they create by toppling things over around your home can even make you think that someone is trying to break into your property!

Fall is a busy season for Minnesota’s avian wildlife. Of course, many think the springtime is busy with egg laying and the summer is busy for birds in flight. These are true but fall brings its own busyness. Birds spend much of their efforts in the fall months preparing for the cold, harsh winters. Part of this preparation includes seeking out warm shelter. Is this warmth found in your attic? If you find birds taking up residence in your home or business, call the humane wildlife removal experts at Minnesota Wild
Watching a little gray squirrel can be entertaining with their cute little whiskers and the way they stand up on their back feet to eat. Oh, and watching them gnaw on a little tiny acorn. Adorable. Well, until they invade your home! Those cute little furry creatures can do a lot of damage by chewing cords, cables, wall board, support beams, and other materials. They have been known to cause thousands of dollars in damages to residential properties in a single season! While it is not common for them to enter a dwelling, the experts at Minnesota Wild Animal Management want to let you know what to look for, if you suspect one is somewhere inside your house.
It happens more often than you might think – a family or homeowner realizes that a bird has flown in through an open door or window, a bat has made its way inside, a mouse leaves evidence of its presence with droppings in a kitchen cabinet, or a snake finds a new home in your garage. That moment when you realize that you are sharing your home with a wild animal often leaves a panicked and helpless feeling. How will you catch it? How will you remove it?
As the summer months come to a close, and the fall season knocks on our backdoors, we see the days begin to get shorter and the nighttime temperatures begin to drop. Everyone seems to be eager for the cooler temperatures of fall to arrive, but as the temperatures drop, wildlife creatures’ activities will be on the rise. Creatures will begin to seek out warmer spots to rest and as the food sources on trees become scarcer, animals get a little bolder in seeking out food (i.e., inside the perimeter of your home or business). Some of the animals that will do this, starting in the fall, are squirrels, mice, possums, and rats, to name a few.
