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? The experts at Minnesota Wild Animal Management want to help you safely and humanely remove the animal from your property. Many have asked how we do this and what’s involved.
Step 1: Contacting us: Perhaps this seems the most obvious step but ensuring that you’ve contacted us in a timely manner has a lot to do with our ability to catch the wild animal(s) before further damages to your property are done. Damage can be sustained by the animal digging, chewing, and using the restroom on your structural building materials (such as insulation). Getting us on the site as soon as possible gives you the best opportunity to ensure the animal(s) have been removed completely.
Step 2: On-site inspection: Upon arriving at your home or place of business, we will assess any damages and begin to see exactly what you’re dealing with. We will also look for any nesting site(s) and will determine what species are present, as different species oftentimes require different trapping and handling techniques.
Step 3: Removal: Probably, every homeowner’s favorite step in the process! After the first visit and inspection, we will place traps at very specific and targeted spots to catch our wildlife attempting to come in, or out. However, during the entrapment, it is not our policy to cause any harm to the animal.
Step 4: Repair any damages: Part of the service of Minnesota Wild Animal Management is to fully inspect your property in search of entry spots, nests, and making note of any damages that have occurred structurally. This can be an entry hole on the eave or soffit of your roof, or a damaged chimney cap. It can mean damages to the wood beams within the walls, or urine-soaked insulation that needs to be removed and replaced. Regardless of the damages, Minnesota Wild Animal Management has the expertise to assess, identify, and repair all damages to your home or business.
Step 5: Preventing a future infestation: A step that is parallel to step 4 is the prevention step. Minnesota Wild Animal Management is the only known animal management service to offer comprehensive services from removal to prevention to damage repair. We have experienced contractors and home builders on staff that are able to effectively rebuild your structure with quality workmanship.
