Raccoon Removal and Prevention

Raccoon had taken up residence in our garage. A1 Checkmate was quick to respond and was able to come to our house the next day. Their practices are very humane and helped me to feel more confident in the removal. I debated removing the raccoon myself but was very thankful I called A1. Well worth the cost. They even put up metal mesh on quite an extensive area to prevent the raccoon from gaining future access. Excellent service. Would highly recommend.
Thank you!

Raccoon removal

Louis was amazing to work with. He is very passionate about his work and cares for the animals before/after the removal.

He contacted us witin hours of my initial inquiry which I ended up finding rare as many companies took a few days to get back to me. I needed the issue addressed right away and it was.

We were very impressed and would highly recommended his services.

Skunk Stink

At some point a skunk was trapped under my house. We have been dealing with the stench for a year now (2 months after moving in - when everything thawed!), and Louis has been amazing! He has been working with me to find affordable and nontoxic ways to deal with the problem, and has stopped in even without an appointment to check in the situation. He is thorough, caring, and accommodating. I recommend him unreservedly!

Hi all...I just want all of u to know the great service provided by louis. He is a professional in his craft, came to my house as I thought squirrels entering through the back roof. He did a full inspection and found another larger hole at the front where a raccoon got in.....took his time, treated my home like his own...no mess...no more pests...let him put your mind at ease too...thanks Louis!

Removing a raccoon humanely

Contacted company for removal of a raccoon which stuck its head in a hole in the shed door. The owner came on time and upon examination, he warned that the animal had distemper and the most humane way was to euthanize it. The technician was courteous and knowledgeable providing excellent advice and further assistance if needed. I am indeed grateful for the service rendered.

Always nice to deal with a good guy

Not only is Louis a nice guy but he does an excellent job. If you are debating between two companies, pick Louis's company. Reasonable price for the work, professional and does what he says he'll do. A very good experience given how frustrating racoons can be!
