New House + New Problem

Gates once again came to the rescue to solve our red squirrel problem. They were meticulous in their assessment and precise in their execution. They walked me through the issue and their plan of attack which was great. They also sealed any potential risk of entry which gave us peace of mind. Thanks again!

Investigation/elimination of possible wildlife infestation

Chris from Gates attended my address to inspect for wildlife invaders (which I believed to be raccoons, as I had seen and heard them repeatedly). He went up the ladder and immediately found an obvious opening (obvious to him!). He did a complete inspection of the roof, including my neighbour's side (we're in a semi). The opening at the front of the house was the only entry point. Chris offered his solution which I approved of. A one way door was installed on the entry point, baited, and the area deodorized. All roof vents were meshed. I had a lot of questions, Chris had a lot of answers including advice and information concerning my attic space going forward. He really put my mind at ease. All work was completed in a timely and profession manner. Approximately one week later Chris returned to examine the one way door and established no wildlife activity and replaced it with a nice, solid mesh attachment. Knock on wood, now I feel bulletproof. Very pleased with Gates' service and superior job by Chris.

Wildlife removal from roof

Nick was courteous and careful. I had squirrels making their way in through an old, unused, vertical flue that was was linked with my neighbour through decay. They had made their way into the ceiling under my flat roof. He informed me of the connection between the two flues and provided the seal and 1 way door on the exterior. he also dealt with another nest of squirrels in my soffit vent on my dormer. He informed me of the process, dealt with my work schedule and was able to send pictures and receipts so I didn't need to be home. Gates came back after a couple of days to ensure that all rodents were out and left me a note as such. The timeliness, care and price are all reasons why I would recommend Gates again.

Best Company ever

I requested a quote to check if there is something in my attic, Chris Came to my house and checked the roof and explained to me that the issues came from metal roof

Chris Muller was very professional honest with me. He advised me to call the roof company to block the edge gaps

Thank you very Much Chris for your advises
Thanks,
Sameh

Terrific service and personnel

called in early summer due to squirrels in porch roof
Gates sent Nick who was prompt and courteous and explained what he was doing and installed a one-way device so squirrels could leave but not return
he came back to check and then remove the device without me having to be home
called Gates agin four months later as suspected squirrels had returned
Nick checked porch, roof, chimney and explained what he thought issue was
there was no charge for this later visit as its considered follow-up
would heartily recommend Gates - Nick is professional and very pleasant and knowledgable re the habits of urban creatures.

I heard and saw a racoon on my roof intermittently a few times and felt it best to racoon-proof potential entry points, knowing racoons had entered our neighbors attic previously. I called a few companies for quotes, and from the time I first called Gate's Wildlife Control, they were knowledgeable and transparent with costs. She gave me a rough breakdown but they also offer a no obligation on-site quote.

Tony was courteous and graciously answered all my questions. While on the roof for inspection he immediately noted that the racoon had already ripped open a plumbing mat, exposing insulation. He gave me a no pressure estimate, which was reasonable for the work to be done. I accepted it and he efficiently patched up the hole and installed heavy steel mesh on all accessible plumbing mats and attic vents, and vulnerable soffit/roof junctured.

I felt he was very honest, efficient and professional He gave us options to repair the damage in the most effective economical way, and even reduced the final bill from the original estimate when he found the damage less severe after repairing the hole. I'd have no problems recommending this company after a very pleasant experience.

He was also very polite around my excited children!

I was very impressed with this company and in particular, Nick, the technician who kept me informed of progress, sending photos and updates as he evicted our squatting attic tenants. Highly recommend!

Raccoon removal and screening all entries

This happened in end of June, I still have raccoon nightmare for weeks after it's gone. Raccoon broken into my attics on a Friday, we were clueless about the noise and it's pretty scary. Andrea returned my call on Saturday morning at 9am, she explained to me that I can do a test to try to determine the type of animal up there. Initial appointment for an inspection was scheduled on Thursday. We were quite sure it was a raccoon after a day or two, the noise was annoying and we felt very uncomfortable especially the noise it just above our bed. We had 2 sleepless nights, I had to call Gates again to reschedule for the soonest available appointment. I am very thankful for Andrea to quickly set up a Tuesday appointment. I am very appreciate Brad and his team (sorry I didn't get the strong and beautiful lady's name) could come promptly to our rescue. They set up a one-way door for the raccoon to get out. They screen all entries. They patiently explained everything to us and our neighbour, since we lived in a semi-detached, our properties will be more secure if we both do screening to all entries. They came back 2 days later to remove the one-way door and secure the area. We certainly learned a lot from this experience! We are glad we found AAA Gates' Wildlife Control, we are very happy with their response and service, will definitely recommend AAA Gates' Wildlife Control!
