Great service and beyond, very reasonable price

All the good reviews are totally real. These guys (especially Ken) provide the best service.

I had received services from two other companies before and wanted to wait for the last one when we had a squirrel stuck in our chimney but Ken came faster and boy I was lucky.

Other than getting the squirrel out of chimney, he inspected the work of other company and told us that it wasn't covered properly. He covered it for us for free. He also installed the vent covers for much cheaper than the other company had quoted me for.

And the best part, our chimney cover had fallen down and Ken said he would come back and install it for free for me if I buy the cover myself. He came back twice since the first time I didn't buy the right item and installed it for free even though it didn't have anything to do with his work. I didn't have to pay another company and pay a few hundreds just to install that cover.

I won't hesitate to call this company again next time I need animal control.

P.s.: cost I posted for installing a bunch of vent covers and more

Removal indoors of a squirrel

Phoned around 9 a.m. on a Saturday. Ken and an assistant were scheduled between 11 - 1. They arrived around 11. First checking outside for the point of entry. Went up on the roof and we showed them were the destruction occurred in the house. They checked around that area and then proceeded downstairs. They located the squirrel and some previous critters, in our old chimney along with 5 feet of nesting material. After much persistence they finally caught the squirrel and carried him outside. They pulled out as much debris from the chimney as possible and bagged it. Then they closed up the chimney so we didn't have this happen again.
They were reasonably priced. There was a minimal amount of disruption and the entire job took less than 2 hours. The squirrel was hard to catch and they thought they might have to leave a cage, but Ken persisted until he caught it. They were great at explaining things and very personable. I chose them because the HomeStar reviews were good. Since companies cannot remove bad reviews, I knew Gotcha would be a good choice because they were highly rated. They are responsive, thorough, reasonably priced and personable. I highly recommend them.

Still squirrel free!

We called Ken last October to help us with squirrels who had made very large hole in our eves, and had set up a home for all their little ones. Ken was very helpful, and willing to brave the 3 stories on a ladder to fix our problem and to check the rest of the roofline for other entry spots. One spot was breached and he promptly returned to rectify the problem. Thank you Ken, we are still squirrel free!

Raccoon removal

Kenneth was exceptionally professional and knowledgeable; a really nice guy who knows his stuff. He was punctual, efficient and a pleasure to deal with. If I had known getting rid of raccoons could be so easy and affordable I would’ve called Gotcha months ago! Highly recommend

Rats at home

We contacted Gotcha Wildlife since we have a problem with rats in our home. They arrived at time, Ken was very clear in explaining what needs to be done step by step and he answered all my questions. He checked inside and outside the house to find any access points to avoid more rodents come in. He put some traps and base stations and he committed to come back in 2 weeks to follow up. Thanks Ken for all your support and professionalism!

Pest (bird) removal

I found a bird in the bathroom vent at 11:00pm one evening. Gotcha Wildlife replied to my inquiry the next morning. Ken was knowledgeable, efficient and professional. He was prompt in responding to my questions and arrived at the time he promised the next day. His work was excellent and he kept me updated on what he was going to do and why it was necessary. The fee for service was within the quotes I received from other providers but Ken and Gotcha Wildlife provides a longer warranty for the work. I would highly recommend Gotcha Wildlife and Ken.
