There is probably not a day that goes by in White Bear Lake when you do not see a squirrel. There are many squirrels in Minnesota. Three different species live in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area – gray squirrels, red squirrels, and flying squirrels. Squirrels are cute and pretty harmless to humans unless they decide to enter your home. Minnesota weather is harsh and during the coldest months, squirrels like to stay warm and are looking for food. Squirrels can climb so getting to your roof or in a small hole in your fascia, walls or through your chimney is no challenge. If you think that you might have a squirrel in your home, reach out immediatel

If you find your uninvited visitor(s) in your garage or attic, or in your bedroom, bathroom, or closet, it’s time to call Minnesota Wild Animal Management.

A home inspection is a crucial step in the home-buying process. It will let you know if there are any areas that need attention before closing the deal. The inspections typically include checking the heating and plumbing, as well as checking for mold or roof leaks. Typically, however, these inspections do not include checking for wildlife damage or whether any wildlife are living in the attic. Most home inspectors fail to spot signs of wildlife damage or entry points, which can pose a problem for homebuyers.

One would think that there would be no birds left in Minnesota during the winter months, as it is assumed that all birds fly south for the winter. This puts all birds in California, Texas, and sunny Miami, right?!? No. There are several species of birds that fly into Minnesota (from further north) as the food sources are much more prevalent in the winter months. Some birds don’t migrate and simply remain put. In fact, there are about 15 common species of birds that are found around central Minnesota during the winter

When the temperatures are this low and the weather is this harsh, it is easy to understand why a bird or a squirrel might look for shelter from the cold. After all, a nest cannot possibly be as warm as a cozy garage, an interior wall or attic. In addition to a warm place to sleep, our homes also offer food and water as well, which can be in short supply these days for wild animals in Minnesota. The ground is frozen, and snow covered and that makes it difficult to find anything to eat. So, if you have seen signs of birds, squirrels or other wild animals inside your home, call the team at Minnesota Wild Animal Management ASAP. We will find the invaders, remove them safely, humanly and make sure that they cannot return.

It may come as a surprise to you to know that people still have encounters with snakes in the winter months… just not outside in your yards, where you might expect them, but rather, in the basement or other out-of-the-way space in your home or business. Just like humans, snakes don’t like to be outside in the winter months. They seek warmth to hibernate. In Minnesota, that usually means until late March or April. Most snakes will burrow down in the ground, under rocks, or in residential crawl spaces to hibernate, but some snakes have found their way inside during the late fall and are now hibernating indoors. So, what can you do? What should you do? At Minnesota Wild Animal Management, we want to put your mind at ease and give you some pointers on how to handle this situation

Bats are very interesting creatures. They are nocturnal, they can find food in total darkness, they can live up to three decades and they can fly very fast with speed up to sixty miles an hour. Bats are the only flying mammals, and they eat mostly insects that come out at night. While they are a fun creature to read and learn about, when one comes too close, they can seem a bit scary! In fact, if you have a close encounter with a bat, you should likely see
