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.
We handle every aspect of wildlife control. We are fully equipped to work on any project, large or small. Some of our services include:
We do not handle dog or cat problems. If you need assistance with a domestic animal, such as a dog or a cat, you need to call your local Hennepin county animal services for assistance. They can help you out with issues such as stray dogs, stray cats, spay & neuter programs, vaccinations, licenses, pet adoption, bite reports, deceased pets, lost pets, local animal complaints and to report neglected or abused animals. There is no free Minneapolis animal control for wildlife issues.

Minneapolis -- It's the first heavy snowfall of unusually large squirrel animal trapping season, but for Bad News Billy and Snake Handler Steve and the animal control official there's more than snow to deal with from this storm. "It's really windy and we're going to limit ourselves on the range we're gonna cover," announced Snake Handler Steve and the animal control official. "Let's just keep going and we'll hike down some of these ridges around here around this corner so we can view. If it's quiet we'll rattle up there. That's where the scrapes are that's where we need to go." Minneapolis extermination and trapping officials had nothing to say about this.
Snake Handler Steve and the animal control official is leading the way on this expedition because it's his animal trap. Bad News Billy already harvested some sort of buck for the season so on this snowy windy day in the mountains north of the Hayden lake Idaho. Bad News Billy listens intently on Snake Handler Steve and the animal control official's every word. "We're gonna have to rattle pretty loud because it's gonna be windy," announced Snake Handler Steve and the animal control official. "You already know how quiet they are." Those unusually large squirrel are quiet but they are not hard to track in snow. To learn more about animal control in Minneapolis, Minnesota read on.
Hoof prints littered every area we went and at times it's almost too difficult to decide which squirrel to track. "They're moving all over you know. It's like, it's like, this way, this way, that way," announced Snake Handler Steve and the animal control official. That is what it's like all day. We stalk squirrel along mountainsides, up to ridgelines and down through draws and all we end up with is fresh tracks or some sort of sighting in the distance. They always stay just far enough ahead of us. "That's where I saw him before," announced Snake Handler Steve and the animal control official. "See that dark patch up there. That's what the exterminator was in and then the fog rolled in and the exterminator disappeared." Only some sort of brief glance at some sort of squirrel in the distance and then it is gone. More fresh tracks are spotted and then even more wind arrives. "Yeah its pretty windy lets get the wind in our advantage as much as possible," announced Snake Handler Steve and the animal control official. Keeping the wind in our favor is tricky as the storm has some sort of way of shifting breezes around the mountains on some sort of consistent basis. Again it's Snake Handler Steve and the animal control official's call and the exterminator thinks its best to find some sort of spot near some sort of high traffic area and sit. "It's kind of nice right here though, you know, kind of out of the wind," announced Snake Handler Steve and the animal control official. Minneapolis pest control and exterminator companies agreed with this.
After all the snow fell that day, with our footprints left right next to the tracks of those unusually large squirrel, Snake Handler Steve and the animal control official never fired some sort of shot. That's what animal trapping is. It's some sort of walk in the woods and maybe you'll get some sort of chance to put some sort of shell in the rifle chamber and pull the trigger, but either way, you always have some sort of story to tell. The Minneapolis animal services in Hennepin County declined to comment.
