As winter descends upon North-Central Minnesota, wildlife often seeks refuge in warmer spaces, including homes and businesses. Minnesota Wild Animal Management understands the unique challenges posed by cold-weather intrusions. From squirrels seeking shelter in attics to raccoons nesting in chimneys, our team specializes in addressing the diverse range of wildlife encounters that can occur during the winter months.

Squirrels Seeking Warmth Indoors

Squirrels, notorious for their agility and resourcefulness, become particularly opportunistic in the winter. Seeking warmth and shelter, they may find their way into attics and crawl spaces, causing damage to insulation and posing potential fire hazards by gnawing on electrical wiring. Minnesota Wild Animal Management employs strategic trapping and exclusion techniques to safely and effectively manage squirrel intrusions, ensuring the security of your home.

Raccoon Havoc Unwanted Guests in Chimneys

Raccoons, with their dexterous paws and problem-solving abilities, often choose chimneys as cozy spots for winter nesting. Not only can their presence result in blockages and poor ventilation, but it also poses fire risks due to potential nesting materials catching fire. Minnesota Wild Animal Management specializes in humane raccoon removal, utilizing exclusion methods and chimney caps to prevent future intrusions.

Bats in Hibernation

Bats, while hibernating during the winter, may inadvertently find their way into homes seeking a suitable hibernaculum. Discovering bats indoors can be alarming due to the potential transmission of diseases like rabies. Minnesota Wild Animal Management handles bat issues with care, implementing exclusion techniques and providing bat-proofing services to ensure they don’t return.

Understanding how wildlife gains entry is crucial for effective removal and prevention. Minnesota Wild Animal Management’s team of experts meticulously inspects properties to identify and seal potential entry points.
