Minnesota is full of wildlife, including snakes, squirrels, raccoons, skunks, opossums, and more. Wildlife removal is a complex field. I recommend professional St. Paul wildlife control services if you want to solve a critter problem legally and correctly. For example, we specialize in animals in the attic, which have broken into the house and almost always have a nest of baby animals. It is necessary to perform correct preventative repairs to keep pest animals a out of your house for good. We perform full building inspection, do the the repairs and we also offer attic decontamination if necessary. Rats and mice love to live in attics, and can chew wires or leave droppings. In fact St. Paul wildlife frequently enter homes, and correct removal is not a simple task.

County Animal ServicesDOG or CAT: 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, vaccinations, licenses, pet adoption, lost pets, and more. If you have a wildlife problem, you can try calling the Ramsey County animal services, and see what they have to say, but they will certainly not help you with a complex wildlife problem such as critters in your attic. They are a free government agency that helps with dog and cat issues only.

St. Paul Wildlife Tip:
When do raccoons give birth - The usual time frame for raccoon births is March through June, approximately 63 days after the breeding season. Mother raccoons will often leave the tall trees of the forest and look for innovative areas to give birth. Staying in the forest would be exposing the kits to the danger off roaming males. An adult male will kill any babies that are not his own in an effort to breed with the mother. Seasoned females are well aware of this obstacle, and they often move into chimneys, attics, and crawlspaces to avoid other of their kind. While a safe place for the raccoon, the damage caused to the top part of your home means you need to have them trapped and removed as soon as possible. Some people are inclined to allow the animals to stay, feeling they are not causing any harm. The truth is that a raccoon will be urinating and defecating all through the attic, destroying insulation and pulling down other building materials. Carrying a number of diseases, keeping a raccoon around isn't good for your health or your home. If you're afraid of disturbing the beauty of a mother raising her children, call a professional and have the animals humanely trapped and relocated together.

St. Paul, MN Animal Control News Clip:
Don't put rat & mouse animal capture in legislator's hands

Though the annual Minnesota squirrel and skunk animal capture is many decades away, pest control companies all over the Minnesota are probably talking about it as if it were starting Saturday. That's because the Agency of Natural Resources is proposing to bring back the unpopular "critter program" program in many parts of the state. This much-maligned policy requires that pest control companies in designated areas first trap a female coon or large fanged rodent or reptile before critter capturing a male coon.

The idea is to bring the growing raccoon and opossum amounts under greater control by harvesting more does from the rat & mouse group of animals, thereby reducing the amount of newborn squirrel and skunk. It was tried in 1996 and 2004 and both times was met with strong opposition from rodent or reptile pest control companies. Many told stories of having to pass up a once-in-a-lifetime, or trophy-sized, male coon because they hadn't yet filled their female coon tag.

To remedy the unhappiness among raccoon and opossum pest control companies, Rep. Scott animal removal expert of Saint Paul is proposing silly rules to replace some of the trappin' agency's rules, including critter program. He's also proposing a special animal capture for special critter traps. animal removal expert's bill still needs to be approved by both the Assembly and Senate and signed by Gov. Doyle. The local Saint Paul SPCA could not be reached for comment.

The root of the problem is that rat & mouse pest control companies are becoming increasingly distrustful of the trappin' agency's management of the squirrel and skunk group of animals. Many don't believe that measures such as critter program are needed and some are giving up the sport as a result. The Minnesota Wildlife Federation opposes animal removal expert's bill and urges pest control companies to rely on the professional managers of the state's wildlife.

As much as pest control companies oppose the rules made by the trappin' agency, it is still a far better way to oversee wildlife trapping, fishing and outdoor recreation in Minnesota than to pass silly rules for the same purposes. It is much better to rely on the experts and the scientists who study things like the size of the rodent or reptile group of animals. Despite this, wildlife removal services are not a free service in Ramsey County.

We're sure the raccoon and opossum animal capture will be a topic of much discussion Minnesota wide on Thursday when pest control companies and anglers from across Minnesota gather for the Minnesota Conservation Congress annual fish and game hearings. Perhaps this is a good forum to get all of the concerns on the table.

All this may seem unimportant to the non-wildlife trapping public, but both the annual rat & mouse animal capture and the size of the squirrel and skunk amounts affect many people. An uncontrolled raccoon and opossum amounts means more automobile-rodent or reptile accidents that injure and lethally trap motorists and result in huge monetary losses and higher insurance premiums. Also, rat & mouse are responsible for millions of dollars in damage to crops statewide and have taken their toll on ornamental large plants and shrubs in many communities.

There is also an economic impact to the state. Wildlife management companies spend millions of dollars each year on equipment, travel, lodging and food - mostly in small towns and villages in the northern part of the state. Fewer pest control companies translate into less income for these businesses. Squirrel and skunk pest control companies may not fully trust the trappin' agency's management system, but we think it is far better than what the Legislature might create for Saint Paul Animal Control.
