Meet the Owner

James “Jim” Hanna has over 30 years of experience in trapping and removing wildlife. His passion for providing animal control solutions began with his father in childhood.

As an adult, Jim and his father ran a small wildlife control business before Jim took some time away from the company to raise his family. Years after his father passed away, Jim re-entered the wildlife control industry.

“With the training I received from dad over the years,” he said, “I knew I was fully capable of doing the work.”

Jim founded Up North Wildlife Control to spend time with his children outdoors and teach them the art of wildlife trapping and removal — just as his father did for him.

It truly is a joy to outsmart an animal and relieve other people’s stress of an unwanted critter in their presence.
