Common Nuisance Wildlife in Wisconsin
Muskrats burrow around your pond resulting in collapsing shorelines and erosion. Runs and bank dens can be a possible hazard for pond owners tripping over uneven ground and holes. Muskrats can also be responsible for damage to vegetation. These pesky rodents will uproot beneficial vegetation around your pond so they can feed on the roots and tubers. Muskrats have also been known to chew through electrical cables for fountains and lights.
Beavers provide a huge ecological benefit to natural areas but can become problematic when they take up residence in your pond or lake. If your property has water and trees keep a look out for signs of their presence. These critters will remove trees and can cause flooding water which may have a long lasting impact on your property. Lake Country Conservationists offers relocation and other removal services as well as proven successful deterrent methods.
Mink and otter cause problems for watergarden owners with fish or those concerned with maintaining a fishery in their pond or lake. These animals are rarely seen but can eradicate a large amount of fish overnight. Evidence of their presence can be missing fish or fish remains around pond. These intelligent species require extensive experience to successfully remove.
This distinct and common furbearer in Wisconsin is well known for becoming a nuisance to homeowners. These mostly nocturnal terrestrial critters can become pests around your home getting into garbage and bird feeders. They carry numerous diseases that can be dangerous to pets and can destroy nests, consuming eggs, of more desirable wildlife species.
