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?
When you realize that you have an unwanted visitor in your home – a bat, a squirrel, raccoon, a snake, a bird, or a mouse, you want it gone immediately. After all, when you see one critter, it is certainly possible that there are more in your home that you have not seen. Emergency wild animal removal is a critical function that our team can provide. Minnesota Wild Animal Management Inc. offers 24/7 humane animal removal services. We will help you when you need it. Waiting 12-24 hours or longer is not all that helpful when you want the wild animal removed NOW!
Unlike birds, most animals do not migrate to the south for the winter. The same creatures that can be a nuisance in the warmer months are the same wild animals that can cause damage to property and buildings during the winter months. It is important to know what to look for to determine if animals have invaded your home seeking warmth. There are some things you can do to prevent an invasion from taking place.
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.
