  • We Can Solve It!
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 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 Steele county animal services for assistance.

There is no free Owatonna animal control for wildlife issues.

Owatonna Wildlife Removal Tip: Are bats blind?

Common perception is that bats have an almost redundant sense of sight. This myth mostly originates from the idea that bats are nocturnal. However, it has become increasingly clear that all 1100 species of bats can see.

Classification of bats

Generally, bats are divided into two major groups. These are believed to have evolved independently of each other but circumspectly have a common ancestor.

- Megachiroptera group includes of larger bat species that mainly feed on fruit and nectar. These bats have been shown to have bigger, bulging eyes thus have more sight capabilities. They rely, mostly, on their sight to locate food and to see and evade obstacles in their paths. For example, flying foxes are able to see during the day, and can actually see in color.
- The other group of bats, Microchiroptera, is smaller in size and mostly feeds on insects. These, in all cases have smaller eyes that are less developed. However, it is proven that they are able to see clearly during the day or in lighted environments. This is how the sense the end of daytime and the commencement of their hunting period in the dark. However, these bats do rely more heavily on echolocation than the underdeveloped sense of sight.

How does echolocation work?

- Bats classified under Microchiroptera are mostly nocturnal in nature and have an underdeveloped sense of sight, especially in the dark. They therefore hunt and feed on insects during the night.
- Bats are able to produce a high-pitched voice with bandwidths ranging from 40 kHz-100 KHz. This goes way beyond what a normal human ear can hear. The sound is produced either through the nose or the mouth of the bats. When it hits an obstacle nearby, such as wall, it is reflected back in the form of an echo to the bat.
- A bat has supersensitive ears. These receive the echo transmitted to the back to the bat an transmit it to the batsí brain which evaluates the auditory information received into visual maps and establishes the shape, location, size and texture of the reflecting object. This echo is sometimes so accurate that a bat is able to correctly pinpoint a moving insect. Some bats even use echolocation to distinguish which insects are safe to eat and which ones are not.


The idea that bats canít see is in fact a fallacy. There are no bats whatsoever that are naturally blind. Some species, as explained employ their senses of hearing more than sight as an adaptation to a way of life, but their eyes are particularly still functional.
