As spring and summer approaches, the sunshine that we have all missed will be spending more time warming our Minnesota landscape. This means more outdoor activity, absorption of vitamin D, and shaking off some of the cabin fever that can build up during our state’s colder months. The downside of the sun making longer appearances during the day is that it means animals also become more active, seeking sources of food and more comfortable shelter. Our homes and property are very appealing locations
Many of us love to watch birds outdoors. They are beautiful and their songs are the hallmark of a beautiful spring morning. However, birds can build nests in and around your home which can prove to be problematic. They may nest in your garage, in your gutters, your chimney, in your attic or even in air vents, becoming a nuisance. The team at Minnesota Wild Animal Management can remove birds from your home safely and humanely, so that their lives are protected but they no longer cause a problem
Having birds around your property brings beautiful sights and wonderful sounds. That is, as long as they keep their distance from our actual home. At Minnesota Wild Animal Management, we regularly get calls from homeowners in Minnesota requesting our safe bird removal services. We’re here to ensure that these birds don’t try and turn your home into their own.

In the middle of winter, many of us think about how tired we are of the cold and how much we are looking forward to spring. 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
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.
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.
