" actually answered my call at 9 pm at night - which is more than I can say for some of the other companys that say they have 24 hour service." We talked about what happened (I saw a bat flying in my basement). He asked if the basement was finished or not (no) and explained that if he came, he might not be able to find it since there might be so many places it could hide. I didn't care and asked if he'd come. He said it would take about a half hour to get here. He arrived - net in hand - hoping to catch it. I explained where I'd been and he went searching. He must have spent at least 30 - 40 minutes looking all over my basement for the bat. Unfortunately no luck - it didn't fly while he was here nor could he see it. He talked me through what he saw (no droppings - so probably just this one random bat looking for a warm place) and said it may get thirsty and look for water so he opened the lid on the toilet and told me to watch for it. If I do find it dead I can call him or take it to the U for testing to make sure it doesn't have rabies. He also explained that now is not a good time of year to seal the house as they're not active enough and suggested April as a good time to do that work. Great guy. He could tell I was a big wigged out by the situation and he was very calm and patient with my questions. I would DEFINITELY recommend him as a go to resource when you have uninvited critters in your house.


"Bill was great - he caught 2 squirrels and sealed up the hole in our fascia within a week. His pricing is reasonable and he is a very professional, nice guy. He" was punctual and good about calling with updates as needed. While I hope we don't have pests again in the near future, I know who to call if we do!

Animal Removal and Wildlife Control

Animals are opportunists. Once they get access to an attic, they make themselves at home. Getting them to move out, and stay out, may require the services of an animal removal professional.

Animal Removal reviews in Minneapolis


Bill was terrific. He was courteous, always let me know when he was coming, knew exactly what needed to be done to rid my attic of unwanted squirrels, and charged a very reasonable fee.
- Daniel H.

Bill is the best! It took about a week to get all members (seven in total!) of the squirrel family out by setting exterior traps on the roof near the access point. Bill called every morning when he was on his way over, and called again after that day's visit to update me on the situation and if any of the squirrels were recovered that day if ...More I wasn't home. Once he was sure everyone was out, he sealed up the access point to prevent future visits from any friends or extended family members of the squirrel family. Always courteous and professional, Bill is your guy!
I looked at reviews for some of the other animal removal services on Angie's, and Bill had better reviews AND was better priced. He also gave me a 10% discount for mentioning Angie's List. I cannot recommend his service enough!
- Julia P.

In early spring of this year we had numerous mole tunnels in our front yard and boulevard. I called Bill, based on his good reviews on Angies List, to get help in eliminating the moles. Bill answered my call immediately and came to our south Mpls. home with traps within 36 hours. He set 2 traps and returned to check them every few days for a period ...More of several weeks. He also noticed that we had shrew tracks/tunnels in our yard so he set a trap for them as well. Bill called me each time he stopped by to let me know he was checking on the traps and to give me an update after he checked them. In the end, he caught one mole and the mole activity in the yard seems to have ended. Bill has removed the traps but he assures me he will come back if I notice any more activity.
Bill is very helpful, knowledgable, communicative and his price is fair. He charges an initial fee for setting the traps and there is a charge for each creature that he traps. I appreciate his frequent trips to check on the traps and to keep me updated on the situation. Since we live across the street from a city park area I anticipate that I may have more mole problems in the future and I will call Bill if that occurs.

was great. He was very professional, down to putting his own towel down on the floor to keep from tracking in snow. He was personable, prompt, told great squirrel stories (while being very respectful about my time), and was compassionate and kind toward the squirrel. He came back a couple days later when the weather cleared, ...More as promised, and recapped the chimney.

After unsuccessfully trapping a single squirrel on our own, we decided to hire a professional. Bill had good reviews on Angie's List, so we gave him a call.
He set up the traps and came back to check on them almost daily, calling beforehand each time to ask if we had caught anything. Most days, there would be new squirrels caught and he would ...More take them away and set new traps, as well as stuff the entrance hole with newspaper (to test whether they were still going in and out).
This went on for almost three weeks, until we finally had the game-winning combination of no noises in the soffits, no squirrels in the traps, and no newspaper movement. At that point, Bill patched the entrance holes with a piece of tin.
price was fair and was based on a set-up fee, plus a cost per squirrel (we had 11 total!).
We haven't had any critters in the soffits since Bill came out! He's a nice guy who knows his stuff, and I would highly recommend him to anyone!
- Claudio R.

I would give the highest possible recommendation. They came out very quickly and are highly skilled, courteous, and very knowledgable. We are very happy with the results. We plan on using them in the spring to help fix an area near our chimney were we think the bats might be entering our attic.
If you need ...More control/removal you will be totally satisfied with .
- John S.

We noticed a hole near our back porch gutters and that squirrels were coming and going from it. We contacted who responded the same day and said he could come out Saturday (no extra charge even though it was the weekend) and survey the situation. When he inspected the damaged area, he said he should be able to set traps and ...More capture the squirrels and once he was sure he had them all (which would take several days), he would put on a good (not permanent but solid) patch on the hole. took lots of time to explain the entire process, including how his license enabled him to capture and release the squirrels which he did in a rural area south of the Cities. He told us he would set three traps that day on the roof and would come back each day around noon to check if any squirrels had been captured. After a few days, assuming he had caught some squirrels, he would put some wadded up newspaper in the hole to see if any squirrel traffic was still occurring. Once he was confident that all the squirrels who had nested in our roof were either captured or had fled, he would seal the hole.
trapped 3 squirrels each of the first 2 days, then 2, then 1. The first time he stuffed newspaper in the hole, it was disturbed, but the second time, it was left alone, and he knew the nest was empty. All in all, it took about a week. Each day, was so quiet and professional that we never even knew when he had come come and emptied the traps and set new ones. Even our dog, , didn't know he was out there!
We were struck by 's warmth and friendliness, his professionalism, and his obvious skill at doing his job. He took all the time necessary to answer any questions we had. Given how much time and effort he put into the job (and the "temporary" patch he put on the roof hole was VERY well done...I was expecting something make-shift and it looks quite solid, in fact), he was/is a bargain. We also like how he trapped and released the squirrels. We would highly recommend him to anyone with a similar problem. We can see why he has earned such high ratings on Angies List, as he deserves all the praise that has been written about him.

was tremendous, very professional, courteous and friendly. He took care of the squirrel problem I had by patching a hole in the 3rd floor . He used a very long ladder to reach the . He also advised me on how to prevent mice from entering my dwelling (found several locations). ...More This company is terrific and I would definitely use them again.
