Consultation

I heard a loud scratching coming from the ceiling in my front room and instantly thought "damn raccoon". I looked up wildlife removal and up came AAA Gates Wildlife. I requested a consultation through email and they replied promptly. Peter came out and I explained the sounds and location. He did an exterior exploration of the home and said he had found no holes where a large animal would enter. He assured me it was probably mice and that AAA Gates does not handle rodents. He suggested I get some traps and not poison. I was very pleased with his explanation and have not heard the noises since.
Thank you for your professionalism. If (and I hope not) I ever encounter wildlife on my property I will most definitely contact AAA Gates Wildlife.

Removal of pregnant raccoon from attic

Justin found the raccoon above our ceiling using a heat imaging device, then proceeded to crawl through a nasty attic to confirm. He then installed a one way trap door over air vent on top of the roof, where raccoon entered the attic. Rest of roof was throughly inspected for any damages or possible breaches. Heavy metal mesh was screwed down over all other vents (5-6) on roof. Justin gave a through education of what would most likely happen next with the raccoon. She left quietly that night prior to having babies and never got back in. Justin came back a few days later to check things out again, remove the trap door and secure the vent with the metal mesh.

Justin was very polite, efficient and very knowledgeable. We would not hesitate to use him or anyone at AAA Gates again. Their sevice is guaranteed for a year and we’re confident they be around to honour it if necessary.

Racoon removal from attic

I worked with Justin who was great. He visited my home 3 times to make sure the raccoon mother and children had all been removed.

Raccoon Removal

I recently had to use the services of Gates Wildlife Control after I saw a raccoon disappear down my fireplace chimney. I remembered hearing an ad on the radio about your company and did some research on Homestars which showed great reviews so I called and was very happy to hear that they actually had someone in the neighbourhood who could be there in 2 hours. Jake arrived right on time and I cannot say enough good things about him and the service he provided. He explained everything to me, told me that he was going to check out the chimney and would let me know exactly what was going on and provide me with an immediate estimate. Turns out it was mama raccoon and 5 babies at the bottom of the chimney. Jake managed to coax the mama out and sealed up the chimney so she could not get back in while he got the babies out of the bottom of the chimney. That was a bit of work for a few reasons but Jake went over and above to get the babies out, all the while explaining each step to me and gently handling and reassuring the baby raccoons. He gently put the babies in a padded box that he attached to the roof near the chimney (plugged in and heated) in the hopes that mama would come back overnight and get them. As promised, he came back the next day (twice actually) to check on them with good news that mama had relocated 4 babies. Justin came back the next day to make sure everything was good and remove the box. I can honestly say what a pleasure it was to meet Jake (and Justin too); Jake was so helpful, kind and gentle with the babies. I would not hesitate to recommend Gates Wildlife Control to anyone and in particular, I would like to ask Gates to recognize Jake for his outstanding customer service skills. Thanks again Jake. It was a pleasure to meet you and I really appreciate everything you did to help me out with the least amount of stress possible.

As impressed as you are with the service Jake / Justin provided you with, I am equally as thrilled to have received your review. To have read such an amazing report on the work Jake performed for you has made my day, month and year. I am extremely proud of my entire team and your review is a testimonial that we are accomplishing what we set out to do day in and day out. I cannot thank you enough for writing such a comprehensive review and for allowing my company to humanely solve your raccoon problem. All the best! Brad Gates, B.Sc.

Installation of preventative screens and inspection

Jake (the technician) did a fantastic job! He explained everything very clearly and gave a courtesy call 15 minutes before he arrived. It's always a little hard to gauge from reading reviews online which company to hire, but I'm glad that I found Gates Wildlife and the tech they sent. The entire estimate and job took a little more than an hour and a half and I was sent both before and after pictures for my reference. A couple of things to help other people who are reading this: work comes with a 1 year guarantee, you get a free estimate first and then you decide if you want to proceed, work only begins after you agreed on the estimate. Well worth the money spent to have someone who does this every single day climb up on my roof to handle something I'd really rather not do myself.

Raccoon removal from attic/roof area.

Problem identified and work completed in short time. Good! However 2nd stage was not completed during A. M. hours as was arranged, therefore I missed a follow up discussion for further advice or details. Joan

Removal of Racoon and their babies from the Attick

Peter was very professional in the way he inspected, gave me an understanding of the problem and a quote with removal and future prevention for similar problems.
Peter dealt with the problem very professionally and as promised one of the team member came back the next day to confirm the Racoons were gone and fixed the roofing.
Very satisfied with the service and will definitely recommend to anyone who has animal problem in the attick.

Highly recommend!

I was very impressed with how quickly they arranged to come to my place to remove a squirrel from the attic. Brad and his daughter were very professional and extremely helpful. They went above and beyond providing me with lots of information. I would highly recommend their company.

Preventative measures to keep birds from nesting in our stove and dryer vents. Prompt, courteous service!

They installed strong mesh to keep birds out of our vents. They repaired the vent opening first and ensured no birds were in the vent prior to doing the work.
