Squirrel nest removal

I felt the people at this company were rude and unreliable, they did not get rid of the squirrel problem and it took them months and months to pick up the trap. it cost over $500 after all was said and done and nothing was even accomplished. I just had two squirrel traps sitting at my house for about 4 months. Wouldn't use them again.

Pigeon Control

Hired Hawkeye to look after a pigeon problem at our home. I selected them mainly because they were the only company that actually answered the phone. In any case they came and installed spikes, showed up on time and were courteous. A few weeks later a couple of the spike strips came loose and they repaired the problem promptly and free of charge.

6 months later I have pigeons nesting behind the strips so I am waiting for Hawkeye to tell me what they can do. After speaking with them a couple of times and leaving several messages they would not get back to me. I was even willing to pay them to return! I wont ever use Hawkeye or recommend them to anyone else.

Groundhog removal

This company gets even one star only because its staff answer calls and show up on time. But for the purpose for which we hired them, it gets nothing. After 2 years of major and multiplying groundhogs in our east end Toronto backyard we decided to opt for a company licensed to euthanize, since one had become 6 in one year. Hawkeye claims it’s the only company in the GTA licensed to do this, something we are checking with MNR. They charge $150 for two live traps—and $150 for each subsequent visit, whether the target animal was caught or not. Odd that euthanizing or relocating costs exactly the same as opening a trap.

We made it very clear the target animal was a groundhog. On the first visit, the woman did not place the traps over the groundhog runs, which we had been careful to note in order to help trap placement. She set the traps during daylight hours and did not tell us how to unset and reset them for nighttime hours. So naturally, the traps caught first a cat, then a raccoon. They were adamant they were going to charge us for releasing the raccoon, even though it also turned out that their “specially formulated groundhog bait” (a direct quote from the office staff) was actually dog food. After a lengthy argument they agreed not to charge us, and we were taught how to set and unset the trap.

Four days of setting and unsetting later, still no groundhog, and we assumed the bait was getting stale. So we went online (I presume this company is unfamiliar with the internet) and in 5 minutes discovered what bait attract groundhogs. We re-baited the traps with complex ingredients like a cucumber and vanilla, moved them to better locations, and within 4 hours had the groundhog. In other words, if we’d bought the trap for less than we paid these twits, we’d be much further ahead. Of course, we’d have to relocate the animal ourselves, which is illegal, but if MNR licenses such enormously incompetent companies to rip people off, dumping a prolific animal up the top end of a ravine well outside the city and letting it fend for itself seems to me a fair trade.

Avoid this amateur hour company.
