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.

I was happy with my decision to have gone with this company to address my problem with squirrels in the attic.

It was Justin who came and was very professional and courteous and easy to talk to. He addressed all the concerns before, during, and even after the work has been done. I also think he went above and beyond on the service he provided. This happened in December 2016 so I don't remember the full details, but I know he had to come back more than once on my request to check on the status of my problem as I reported still hearing critter noises in the attic.

If you're doing your research and plan to get 2-3 quotes before making the move, you might find that this company isn't the cheapest, so just make sure you compare apples to apples in terms of the offerings and guarantees.

Gates' was quick to respond and to send out a tech to evaluate the situation. Despite the inclement weather he got up on the roof to assess things, and installed a one-way door over the damaged are. 3 Months later and (knock on wood) we are still critter free.

They were very professional, informative and kind. They came, assess the situation, told us all of our options. They told what was happening step by step. It was an educational experience, learn the habits of the raccoon and saw the six babies that what up there. They sealed the access point and secure any potential new access points, to ensure no further intrusion.
It was a humane removal of the baby raccoons, placing them in a heated box, so the mother can take them to their "new den"!
Thank you!

Brad and Christa were amazing! They turned up on time (actually, a little early), and took time to explain the process fully and all of the options available for removing the Raccoon family. They were an efficient team-the raccoon family was removed and the hole in my roof repaired/protective wire grids over the vents installed, all within 90 mins. The whole experience, from booking the appointment to the actual work was very pleasant and I would not hesitate to recommend them!

I would highly recommend AAA Gates Wildlife Control. We had a mother raccoon and her babies in our attic. Chris did an awesome job removing the raccoons and animal-proofing other entries where wildlife might enter our house. He did all that while it was pouring rain outside. He was very nice, courteous and professional. I am very happy that the issue has been resolved.

Hi Sylvia, thank you for your kind words regarding Chris. It was a smart decision to animal proof your home as this is the time of year all wildlife are looking to gain entry into attics and raise their family. It makes me happy that you were pleased with our work. Brad Gates, B.Sc. Owner / President - Awarded HomeStars Best Of 2015, 2016 & 2017.

Twice in the last number of months, I've called Gates to ask them to come help me with mice and then raccoons. Twice they've given me free advice over the phone and twice it worked like a charm.

I'm a single mom, and appreciate that they saved me a great deal of $$ by giving out the advice. We have a mom raccoon and six babies who have relocated from my front porch bench safely and humanely and I'm not out of pocket.

So while I haven't actually yet had to use them in person - how can you not trust a company with service like that?? Thanks Gates! You're awesome.

I had a great experience with AAA Gates Wildlife Control. Brad came out to assess my situation and provided me with a full quote & breakdown of the job. He was very professional & courteous. I thought I had birds above my powder room bathroom in the vent, but it turned out to be a squirrel! He put in a one way door & closed the other vents on the side of my house. He returned a few days later, made sure the squirrel had left and put up a new vent. I am happy this was taken of so quickly & professionally.

Squirrel had entered the attic. Mr. Gates from AAA Gates' Wildlife Control set an appointment to come out promptly, addressed the problem and identified the entry point accurately.
A detailed and very reasonable estimate was provided, which took into account preventive measures for other potential problem areas.
AAA Gates Wildlife Control had assisted me many times in the past decades with other wildlife problems, and all cases were resolved promptly with maximum professional care at reasonable cost.
