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.

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
