It was a pleasure having Justin come by on the very same day we called. He was polite, friendly, respectful and professional.
At times, there was a terrible smell coming through the wall into the 2nd floor washroom we were renovating. We had already ripped up the floor sometime before and cleaned up an old mice nest in a joist floor bay and spray foamed the hole going through the exterior wall sheathing where it seemed the mice had been entering. The foul smell also persisted for a while outside at the adjoining lower roof soffit.
Earlier this year, a red squirrel had made its way through the adjoining lower roof vent. It came and went for a while making all sorts of noise until, one day, we saw it going through the vent and it saw us staring at it.
Well, Justin went onto the roof, removed the old vent, took a video inside the attic and a picture of the compromised vent and even removed the roof soffit. There were some remains of a mouse in the soffit. Most everything looked alright in the attic. The roof vent was replaced with a new metal one and fortified with heavy gauge wire mesh.
We were impressed by the work done and the advice that was given. Good to have such a valuable service available just a phone call away.

Hi Private User, thank you for writing such a detailed review of your situation and experience with my technician Justin. I am glad Justin was able to get to the bottom of your odour situation. Sometimes determining where a dead animal smell is originating from can be tricky. Smells can travel in mysterious ways inside a house and sometimes are detected far away from where the animal has died. Locating the origin often requires a fair bit of detective work from an experienced technician. Thank you also for your kind words about Justin. Brad Gates, B.Sc. Owner / President - Awarded HomeStars Best Of 2015, 2016 & 2017.

Squirrels were building a nest under our solar panels. Chris from Gates Wildlife Control came,took a look at the problem, cleared the nest and put up protective screens around all of the solar panels and vents on our roof the same day. The work was excellently done. Chris was courteous and very professional. Thank you.

Install one way door to get squirrels out of roof (entry point was a hole chewed last week in water-damaged wood of exterior side wall above brick line). Secure the area along the entry point and brick-to-wall line with 10 feet of metal mesh to avoid recurring entry.

I find Gates service highly professional, courteous, and prompt - called them at 5pm Sunday, survey and work done by next morning.

The squirrels look happy outside of the house, the kids no longer hear animals in the walls when going to bed, and I can go back to my daily life.

A raccoon was tearing up our roof attempting to enter the attic.
I contacted AAA Gates' Wildlife Control and within a week Wildlife Technician Nick Parkin had managed to solve the problem and repair the damage the animal had caused.
Excellent service all around: knowledgeable, efficient, professional and personable. Thank you AAA Gates' Wildlife, and kudos to Nick for the guidance and help.

We had been hearing sounds in the attic and believed we had animals getting in. I wanted a reputable company that would find out how animals were getting into the attic, to remove them and to prevent any further animals from getting in.

I went on to HomeStars and liked what I read about Gates Wildlife Control. I called them to find out a little more about their services, cost and to schedule an appointment. We were impressed. Blake is professional, experienced, knowledgeable and pleasant. He determined that squirrels were getting into our attic, and found how they were getting in. He blocked off the access point, set up a trap to remove them and prevented them from getting in. We’re very pleased with Gates and highly recommend their services and Blake. Thank you. Pat

Hi Pat, it makes me happy to hear that you did your homework before hiring a wildlife control company. Too many homeowners hire the first company they find on the internet and they are often disappointed after hiring a fly-by-night outfit. HomeStars is also my first choice when looking for service companies for my own home. Thank you for your kind words for Blake and for writing such a wonderful review. Brad Gates, B.Sc. Owner / President - Awarded HomeStars Best Of 2015, 2016 & 2017.

I recently heard movement in my attic (scratching around) in the middle of the night. Thinking it was a raccoon or squirrel (very loud so I figure do ir was a raccoon), I called AAA Gates Wildlife Control the next morning and they sent someone out the same day. Peter was fantastic. He’s very knowledgeable and worked very quickly. Within a day the animal was out and all areas were secured so that it won’t happen again. Gives me great peace of mind!

The quick response was fantastic and the quality of work is impeccable. I would definitely recommend this company :)

Hi Anne Marie, many of our clients describe the noises in the attic as if they are moving furniture or bowling. Also as you mentioned, scratching sounds are a dead give away that something has moved in. Thank you for complimenting Pete on a job well done. I am glad we were able to resolve your wildlife problem quickly. Thanks for taking the time to write such a great review. Brad Gates, B.Sc. Owner / President - Awarded HomeStars Best Of 2015, 2016 & 2017.
