If you have any questions about the wildlife of Milwaukee, you can contact the Wisconsin Wildlife Commission, sometimes called the Wisconsin Fish & Wildlife Agency. Wisconsin game wardens address many wildlife management matters, from hunting licenses, to poaching, endangered species, and Milwaukee wildlife management. They deal with wild animals outside the range of a pest control company, such as cougars or bears. If you have a problem with nuisance wildlife in Milwaukee like squirrels, snakes, bats, or raccoons, the state agency is very unlikely to help. You need to hire a private company (here are their prices) such as AAAC Wildlife Removal at 414-316-6510.
Wisconsin State bird: American robin
State mammal: Badger
State fish: Muskellunge

Wisconsin borders Lake Michigan and Lake Superior, and those massive bodies of water give the state a wide range of habitats. Not only does the land have an area of flat plains, it has a variety of sandstone formations in semi-arid locations, and it has hardwood and coniferous forests over approximately 46 percent of the state. No matter what habitat you are wander through in Wisconsin, you are likely to run into a lake or two, as thousands of lakes were created by glaciers during the last ice age.
A state with such a high percentage of forests is home to a variety of woodland creatures. Many of the common animals found in Wisconsin are also the same animals that become nuisance home invaders. The raccoon, which is abundant through the forests in the state, is often opportunistic and will scavenge around homes and often live in attics. Other frequently seen animals include skunks, opossums, foxes, squirrels, rats, mice, voles, moles, mink, porcupines, and weasels.
The thick forests also provide ample coverage for a host of larger animals. The largest of all Wisconsin creatures is the moose. This grazer is followed by the elk and the black bear in size. Wolves, cougars, bobcats, and coyotes are other predators in the state. While reclusive, cougars have been known to become problematic if their food supply is diminished or if humans have spread too far into their territory.
Timber wolves, the species of wolf in Wisconsin, are known to be the most aggressive out of the primary wolf species in the United States. These animals sometimes hunt livestock, though coyotes tend to be more prone to such close-human activity. Another common predator of smaller mammals is the bobcat. This feline is rarely seen by humans, which seems to suit the cat just fine.
With so many bodies of water in the region, semi-aquatic animals have found a home in Wisconsin as well. The state has a thriving population of beavers, muskrats, and otters. These animals keep mainly to themselves, but sometimes their activities on private property can cause problematic flooding.
Even though nuisance animals are common in Wisconsin, removal of wildlife is strictly regulated in the state, and the law is stringently enforced. To avoid hefty fines, homeowners are encouraged to consult a wildlife professional before attempting any home removal of a nuisance animal.

After the discovery of two Mediterranean fruit flies in South Milwaukee, an infestation has been declared for the first time since 1992, and officials said Wednesday that they expect to set a quarantine covering an 81-square-mile area. The Milwaukee County Pest Control board could not be reached for comment.
A female mouse was found Monday in a fruit tree in the Santa Teresa neighborhood near Blossom Hill Road and Snell Avenue, prompting the Wisconsin Department of Food and Agriculture to declare the infestation. It was the second corn chewing pest fly found within a half-mile area since Oct. 5. Most local owners of pest control companies in Milwaukee, Wisconsin weren't sure what to make of all this.
Mice are about half the size of rats. They do not bite and pose no threat to humans, but the young are born inside more than 250 varieties of fruits and vegetables and can turn them to inedible mush. Milwaukee pest control is an important part of the local economy, but only a few Wisconsin companies deal with wild animals.
As part of a strategy to eradicate mice that haven't been found, agriculture officials plan to release more than 2.5 million sterile Mediterranean fruit flies weekly by air over a 10-square mile area for an indefinite period, beginning today. Females breed with the sterile males but then don't reproduce, and eventually the population declines. There are many types of insects and animals in Milwaukee, and other Wisconsin cities, but not all of them are pests after all.
