David in Toronto
1 review Toronto, ON
10/10

Excellent service, very knowledgeable and solved the problem. Gates was able to squeeze me into their very busy schedule on very short notice. Gates explained the whole process, was able to encourage the mother to leave the attic, removed the baby and sealed the whole. They left the baby in a heated box over night. Gates came back the following day to check to ensure the mother picked up the baby. I hope I don't need their service again, but if so I wouldn't hesitate to call them again. I highly recommend Gates Wildlife Control.

Hi David, thank you for writing such a descriptive review. Any potential customers reading your review will get an excellent understanding of our removal process. I particularly liked you mentioning that we "came back the following day to check and ensure the mother picked up the baby." We pride ourselves in the fact that, unlike the majority of wildlife removal companies, we promptly follow up on our work in progress to ensure the animals are safe and that the job is proceeding as planned. Thanks for hiring us to humanely solve your wildlife problem. Brad Gates, B.Sc. Owner / President - Awarded HomeStars Best Of 2015, 2016 & 2017.

Had to remove a bird nest because it got too loud for my young kids. Called to arrange appointment and got great service the next day (in the rain)!
Thank you, guys! Will call again if I ran into something else.

I can't say enough about the services provide by Gates! From my initial phone conversation with Tara to Pete arriving ahead of schedule and completing the job way beyond my expectations - the service was top notch and worth every penny. Birds were safely set free and we are now protected from this hopefully ever happening again in our vent. Thank you so much for everything!

1 review Markham, ON
10/10

From inside my soffits to back into the wild! I'm sure these little fellas are much happier now. In addition to removing the raccoons (5 babies and the mama) all access points were repaired and sealed up; the entire roof was examined and additional work was done to ensure no additional vulnerabilities.
Work was booked and completed very fast, and very well. Professional, knowledgeable, and a caring hand for our former residents. Trust them to humanely remove pests from your home.

Thank you for fantastic service that took care of our raccoon roof problems in a decent and caring manner. They discovered an additional problem created by the roofing company and guided us to resolve it quickly. Their service was prompt, professional, with attention to detail. They also followed-up to make sure the problem was resolved - courteous and comforting and highly efficient. Highly recommend AAO Gates Wildlife Control. They know their business.

10/10

Set up a cage with a 1 way door to ensure the squirrels got out, but not back in. Filled all the holes where they could potentially get in, and deorderized the area. Very professional, quality of work was amazing. A little costly and paid more than I was hoping for, but I guess you get what you pay for.

10/10

In March, we detected intermittent scratching in our garage ceiling. Gates Wildlife responded promptly, with Chris determining that a squirrel was beginning to prepare a nest. He installed a one-way hatch and came back several days later to remove the hatch and seal up the spot where the squirrel was getting in. Chris assured us that we had called in time as there were as yet no signs of babies. He was thorough, polite, and patient in answering our questions. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Gates Wildlife Control.

Hi C&E, the timing of your call to evict your critter was excellent. It is certainly much easier to deal with just the adult squirrel than the entire family. I appreciate your kind words for Chris and will pass them on to him. Thank you for your review. Brad Gates, B.Sc. Owner / President - Awarded HomeStars Best Of 2015, 2016 & 2017.

9/10

I heard animal footsteps in my attic. Gates Wildlife came the following week and I was very happy with the experience. The technician Chris was very professional, knowledgeable and courteous. He confirmed squirrels had gotten into the attic, had a nest but were now gone. He sealed up their entry point and came by the following week for a follow-up.

Only reason I did not give 10 out of 10 was that they over-scheduled their appointments the day of the visit and ended up showing up an hour late without letting me know. The technician was apologetic and I wasn't inconvenienced so it didn't take away from my appreciation of the good job they did.

Hi Renator, I really appreciate you explaining why you did not give us a 10 out of 10. As the owner it is extremely important to hear about our customers experiences and learn from our mistakes. While we do pride ourselves on arranging firm appointment times that are convenient for our customers, in your case we let you down. I apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. Thank you for your informative review, we will be discussing it in our next meeting. Brad Gates, B.Sc. Owner / President - Awarded HomeStars Best Of 2015, 2016 & 2017.
