WILDLIFE REMOVAL, CONTROL AND RELOCATION

Wildlife Populations have been on the rise in Ontario and across Canada. As populations grow, they are finding their way onto our lovely properties and even in our homes and businesses.

Raccoons and Squirrels also need to stay warm during the Winter and the perfect place for their den is your attic! These animals also pose a health risk and can cause structural damage to your home and damage insulation, especially if they choose to have babies there!

Skunks, Opossums & Raccoons like to find shelter under decks, porches and sheds. These animals are protected from the outdoor elements and can potentially have babies in these places where they feel secure. These Animals are creatures of habit and will also try to enjoy your backyard or front yards and invade your space. They can sometimes be aggressive in nature  and can pose a risk to you, your pets, and most definitely your Garbage cans!

Birds can be a nuisance come Spring and Summer  time and they can build nests in unwanted places such as Vents, Soffits and Eavestroughs.Bird mites can pose a risk to your health and make their way into your home.

RACCOON

Raccoons are medium-sized mammals native to North America. They are known for their distinctive black mask-like markings on their face and their bushy ringed tails
Raccoons have a stocky build with a body length of about 15-30 inches and a weight ranging from 5 to 25 pounds. Their fur is dense and varies in color, typically ranging from gray to brown. The black mask around their eyes helps reduce glare and enhance their night vision.
Raccoons are highly adaptable and can be found in a variety of habitats, including forests, marshes, prairies, and urban areas. 
Raccoons are primarily nocturnal animals, meaning they are most active during the night. They have excellent night vision and are well-suited for foraging in dimly lit environments. 
Their diet includes fruits, nuts, seeds, insects, small mammals, birds, fish, amphibians, and even garbage or human food scraps.
Raccoons are known for their adaptability and ability to thrive in urban environments. They are skilled climbers and can scale trees and buildings with ease. Raccoons have become common in many cities, where they take advantage of food sources such as garbage bins and pet food left outside.
Raccoons typically mate in late winter or early spring. The mother raises the cubs in a den, usually located in a tree hollow, a burrow, or an attic space.
If you encounter raccoons, it's best to observe them from a safe distance and avoid feeding or approaching them, as they can become aggressive if they feel threatened.

SQUIRREL

Squirrels are small to medium-sized rodents that belong to the family Sciuridae. They are known for their agile climbing abilities, bushy tails, and their habit of storing food for future use. 
There are over 200 squirrel species found worldwide, with the most common ones being the gray squirrel, black squirrel, red squirrel, and fox squirrel. 
Habitat: Squirrels inhabit various habitats, including forests, woodlands, parks, and urban areas. They are adaptable creatures and can thrive in both natural and human-altered environments.
Squirrels typically have slender bodies with bushy tails that help them maintain balance and communicate with other squirrels. They have sharp claws and strong hind legs for climbing trees and leaping between branches.
Squirrels are omnivorous, although most species primarily feed on plant material. Their diet consists of nuts, seeds, fruits, berries, flowers, buds, and fungi. Some species also consume insects, bird eggs, and small vertebrates.
Reproduction: Squirrels typically have two breeding seasons per year, in spring and late summer. Females build nests in trees or other suitable locations, where they give birth to litters of three to eight babies, known as kits or kittens.
Squirrels are often found in urban environments, where they can sometimes be considered pests due to their tendency to raid bird feeders, dig up gardens, or nest in attics.

SKUNK

Skunks are small mammals known for their distinctive black and white fur and their ability to spray a strong-smelling liquid as a defense mechanism. Skunks are typically about the size of a house cat, ranging from about 15 to 35 inches, including their tail. They have short legs and a compact body with black fur and white stripes or spots. 
There are several species of skunks, but the most well-known is the striped skunk found in North America
Skunks can be found in various habitats, including forests, grasslands, and suburban areas. 
They are adaptable animals and can thrive in both rural and urban environments.
They are known to dig up lawns and gardens in search of insects and grubs.
Skunks are infamous for their defensive spray, which they release when they feel threatened. The spray is produced by scent glands located near the base of their tail. It contains sulfur compounds that create a strong, pungent odor that can be detected from a considerable distance. The smell is extremely unpleasant and can linger for days. Skunks will usually try to warn potential threats with displays like stomping their feet, raising their tail, and hissing before resorting to spraying.
Skunks have a breeding season that typically occurs in late winter or early spring. After a gestation period of about two months, females give birth to a litter of usually 4 to 7 kits. The kits are born blind and rely on their mother for nourishment and protection. They start venturing out of the den after about six weeks and become independent around two to three months old.
It's important to note that skunks are wild animals and should be treated with caution and respect. If you encounter a skunk, it's best to keep your distance and avoid startling or provoking it to prevent any unwanted encounters with their defensive spray.

OPOSSUMS

Opossums are opportunistic omnivores with a very broad diet. Their unspecialized biology, flexible diet and reproductive strategy make them successful colonizers and survivors in unsettled times. The opossum are a small to medium-sized marsupial, about the size of a large house cat (2-3′ long and 4-15 lbs.). Most members of the opossum family have long snouts and narrow braincases. They can be traced back to the time of the dinosaur.


GROUND HOG

Groundhogs are solitary and herbivorous animals. They eat grass, roots, seeds, plants, and sometimes insects. Groundhogs live in burrows underground and are hibernating mammals. Their burrows can have more than one entrance. Groundhogs are at their maximum weight before entering hibernation. Hibernation lasts about five months.


CHIMPMUNK

Chipmunks are small members of the squirrel family. There are about 20 species of western chipmunks and one species of eastern chipmunk in USA and Canada. Chipmunks can be found in woodlands, along forest edges, bushes and gardens, parks and around houses or cemeteries. They have reddish-brown fur, with white and black stripes on their back. They also have long flat bushy tails. The largest chipmunk is the eastern chipmunk, which grows up to 11 inches and weighs as much as 4.4 ounces. The smallest chipmunk is the least chipmunk, which grows up to 8.5 inches and weighs up to 1.8 ounces.


GEESE

Canada geese, also known as Canadian geese, are large waterfowl that are native to North America. 
Canada geese are large birds, measuring about 30 to 45 inches in length with a wingspan of around 50 to 77 inches. They have a distinctive black head and neck, white chinstrap, and brownish-gray body feathers. Their beaks and legs are black.
Canada geese are highly adaptable and can be found in a variety of habitats. They are commonly found near bodies of water such as lakes, ponds, rivers, and marshes. They are known to migrate to warmer regions during the winter months.
Canada geese are highly social birds and are often seen in large flocks, known as gaggles. They mate for life and often return to the same nesting grounds each year. 
They build nests on the ground near water, using grass, leaves, and twigs. The female lays a clutch of 4 to 8 eggs and both parents take turns incubating them for about a month. They have adapted well to human-altered environments and their populations have increased in many areas. However, their large numbers and tendency to graze on lawns and crops have sometimes led to conflicts with humans. Canada geese are often found in parks, golf courses, and other open areas where they may come into close contact with humans. While they are generally not aggressive, they may become territorial during the nesting season and display defensive behavior. It's important to maintain a safe distance and avoid feeding them, as it can lead to dependence on humans and other issues.
