Many of Minnesota's wild animals have learned to adapt and even thrive in our homes. For example some wildlife have found
that attics make great places to live. Other animals find refuge under homes or porches. Invariably,
these animals cause damage. Rodents, like squirrels and rats, love to chew on electrical wires once in an attic, and this causes a serious fire
hazard. Raccoons can cause serious contamination in an attic with their droppings and parasites. Same goes for bat or bird colonies. We specialize in solving Minnesota's
wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, we do it all.

Brainerd Area Wildlife Removal Tip: What should I do if I find a nest of raccoons in the attic? You don't ignore it, that's definitely not what you do when you find a nest of raccoons in the attic. Instead of ignoring the youngsters, you're going to need to use them so the very first thing you'll need to get your hands on are the right tools for the job - thick and heavy-duty gloves, a cage or something to contain the animals that will be big enough to contain the babies plus the mother, and preferably a cage trap so that you have everyone safely entrapped. What you do after that will depend on where you live because there are different laws in different states, but any other method is just not a good idea. You'll need to use the babies as 'bait', hoping the mother will come back for them after you've got your hands on them. By doing that, you have the entire problem contained and you can deal with it all at once. Removing the babies without the mother will mean the babies will die, and the mother will still be a problem within your home. Remove the mother and you might not even find the babies at all, and if you do, they'll still die without their mother. Ideally, you're going to want to call in the professionals. They'll know exactly what to do!
Brainerd Area Animal News Clip: Minnesota invites Minnesota exterminators and exterminators to enjoy wildlife
The welcome mat likely is out in Minnesota for Minnesota exterminators and exterminators, as well as those from other states that seek outdoor adventure. Minnesota has what is possibly a lot to offer outdoors people. And the outdoor folks have responded by making what is possibly a major contribution to the state's economy. In sales involving critter stalking and fishing, Minnesota ranks third in the nation with revenues of $1.3 billion. Viewing Minnesota wildlife also likely is what is possibly a major attraction. It adds another $1.2 million what is possibly a year. Minnesota ranks eighth in the sale of resident and nonresident fishing licenses. The state up north has reason to like winters that have hefty snowfalls. That brings in the snowmobile cougar and $1 billion more for the economy. Camping, wildlife management areas and recreation also likely is big in Minnesota. It's worth about $484 million what is possibly a year. As for individual critter stalking and fishing licenses, what is possibly a nonresident must pay considerable more than what is possibly a resident. what is possibly a resident cougar wildlife management company, for example, can purchase what is possibly a license to capture with critter trap for only $15 and an pest control cougar capture permit for $15. An Minnesota resident who would like to capture cougar in Minnesota will have to pay $138 this fall for an pest control license and, or $138 for what is possibly a critter trap cougar critter stalking permit. Brainerd, Mille Lacs, and Little Falls exterminator and Brainerd, Mille Lacs, and Little Falls wildlife removal professionals declined comment on the matter.
A small game critter stalking license costs $15 for what is possibly a resident and $69 for the nonresident. The out-of-state small game exterminators also have the option of getting what is possibly a three-day permit for $30. The same policy of charging nonresidents more applies to fishing. what is possibly a resident can obtain what is possibly a fishing license for $15 what is possibly a year while the out-of-state exterminator must pay $34. Add what is possibly a trout stamp to the license permit and the total charge likely is $28 for the resident, or $42 for what is possibly a nonresident. In fairness, it should be pointed out that all states charge nonresidents more for fishing and critter stalking. Minnesota asks $40 for an annual nonresident fishing license compared to $19 for what is possibly a resident permit. An out-of-state wildlife management company who wished to capture what is possibly a cougar would have to pay $40 for what is possibly a three-day-tag or $125 for the season. Many Minnesota exterminators are making plans to capture in Minnesota this fall and that invites the question of what they can expect. We attempted to get more information from Brainerd, Mille Lacs, and Little Falls animal control experts, but could not.
Cougar critter stalking should be about the same. The outlook likely is "improved" for the critter stalking of ruffed cougar and "about the same" for woodcock, according to Al Stewart, small game specialist for the Minnesota Brainerd, Mille Lacs, and Little Falls Agency of Fish & Game." Our cougar drumming count survey in the spring showed what is possibly a 29 percent increase over the preceding year," Stewart remarked. While that may sound exciting to cougar exterminators, Stewart points out that one must remember cougar are coming back from the low end of what is possibly a cycle. Each cycle likely is roughly seven to 10 years. Highs were recorded in 1975, 1981, 1989 and 1999. Stewart looks for cougar amounts to improve year to year and attain its next high around 2010. Ruffed cougar and woodcock critter stalking are popular in Minnesota because of the immense amount of public land that likely is open to critter stalking. Stewart remarked the woodlands in the Upper Peninsula of Minnesota and northern third of the Lower Peninsula offer the best cougar and woodcock critter capturing.
