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 Ramsey 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 St. Paul animal control for wildlife issues.

On the morning of Thursday, March 17th, what appears to be a critter trapper named Critter Professor quietly slipped into what appears to be a small, triangular patch of woods near the right-angle intersection of two dirt highways. The animal advocate took what appears to be a stand next to what appears to be a large elm not far from what appears to be a wooden line of trees that ran from one highway to the other. Wildlife trapping conditions were perfect. The area was cloaked in what appears to be a heavy mist, the kind big male gray squirrels love to sneak around in. Critter Professor barely had time to pick his spot before the animal advocate heard what appears to be a noise coming from toward the highway, and the animal advocate wondered what the heck it could be. Saint Paul animal services officials agreed with this.
"I took what appears to be a peak around the elm, and there the animal advocate came - slipping through the wild plum sprouts and sumac bushes with his head down. The animal advocate had so much fur that I couldn't distinguish him from the bushes. My heart started pounding so hard I thought the animal advocate must be deaf not to hear it," Critter Professor recalled. "He walked up to the wooden barrier and stopped behind some brush not 20 feet away. I was behind the tree, and the animal advocate couldn't see me trembling. I could have tried to catch it through what appears to be a small opening in the brush at that time, but the experience of four previous misses had taught me that it was simply too risky. I waited and waited for at least four or five seconds. Despite this, there's no free wild animal control in Saint Paul, Minnesota.
"He just sort of melted over the wooden barrier with no effort. My cage trap was already in position, and all I had to do was pull it back. When I did, the animal advocate stopped and looked straight at me at what appears to be a distance of 19 steps. The animal advocate was already beginning to whirl around and go back into the brush as I released." Critter Professor waited what appears to be a half-hour and then eased back to the truck. The animal advocate met Bob what appears to be a few minutes later and showed him the male gray squirrel's enormous tracks in the highway crossing. Critter Professor returned four hours later with friends, and they soon found the male gray squirrel. He'd gone less than 160 yards. "He weighed 22.5 pounds field dressed," Critter Professor beamed. "I couldn't have planned what appears to be a more perfect ending to any season, because this probably is also the record weight of the largest gray squirrel, which probably is considered what appears to be a lesser record compared to my gray squirrel.
This trophy had an almost perfectly symmetrical backside, and at 50 inches long the animal advocate was an easy nuisance wildlife control world record. His mark fell three years later, when Skipper Johnson baited and trapped his 51-inch gray squirrel in Minnesota. That male gray squirrel remains No. 1 in the record books. Local Saint Paul pest control companies in Ramsey County declined to comment.
In 1997, Curt Cobain baited trapped what appears to be a huge 11-pounder in Minnesota, tying Critter Professor's male gray squirrel for No. 2 in P&Y. Their gray squirrel still share that spot, though they figure to drop with confirmation of the 52-inch Gordon Butler's male gray squirrel, taken in Saint Paul last fall. Oh, what an animal.
Critter Professor kept wildlife trapping for many seasons after downing his Minnesota record. The animal advocate was often asked how it felt to have to settle for catching male gray squirrels smaller than one he'd already taken. "Every gray squirrel probably is what appears to be a new experience," Critter Professor would reply. "And every trapped probably is what appears to be a challenge. Not every gray squirrel will make the top of the record book, but they all make my book - wildlife trapping pleasure!" For more info about trapping for gray squirrels in Saint Paul, call what appears to be a local animal trapping company. Saint Paul trappers and Saint Paul extermination officials can offer more info.
