The Risks Involved in Wild Critter Encounters

Top 6 Emergency Wildlife Removal Scenarios In Your Home
#1. Raccoon Loose in your Living Space: When it comes to having a raccoon running around loose in your living space, it’s important to seek immediate assistance from professionals who provide these wildlife control services.A raccoon is known for its intelligence and dexterity, which means they can enter living areas from attics or crawl spaces quite easily. Not only can these animals potentially cause property damage, but they can also pose health risks to humans and pets via their droppings and urine. Wildlife control experts undertake a thorough inspection of the premises to assess the extent of the issue and determine the most efficient manner to provide wildlife control for the raccoons. With their expertise, you can be sure that the raccoon is removed quickly and safely
#2. Bat Loose in House: If you have bats flying loose in your house, first off – don’t panic. Bats seem to have a bad reputation but they are mainly harmless creatures and the bat removal process is not complicated. It’s true that some bats can transmit diseases like rabies (by biting), but these instances are very rare to occur. Bats are nocturnal creatures, so it is not unusual to see them flying around at night time. During the day, they usually sleep behind a picture frame or a window curtain. If you are lucky, you can get them outside on your own through an open door or catch them with a butterfly net and release them. However, if you are not able to do so, do not worry. There are professional bat extraction services available that will help you humanely remove the bat. In the winter, they hibernate in attics and walls, and sometimes they can wake from hibernation, get disoriented and get inside your home. In the springtime when they come out of hibernation and start flying outside at dusk, a cone shaped one way door can then be attached over the entry point to evict them once and for all.
#3. Trapped Squirrel in Fireplace: It’s a very sensitive matter when an squirrel or bird is atop your chimney stack trying to get warm and they inadvertently fall down into the chimney and get stuck in your fireplace. Unlike the raccoon which can climb out, squirrels and birds are known to be unable to escape on their own in some cases, so a removal job should be a top priority. Not only do we want to prevent injury to the creature, but we also want to avoid potential secondary issues like blockages or dead animal smell. It is important to handle the situation in a gentle way without harming the animal. Contacting a professional emergency wildlife service that does bird and squirrel removal, to catch and release the animal, is the best thing to do. Ensuring the safety and well-being of wildlife that may accidentally find their way into our homes is crucial for both the animal’s survival and the safety of our homes.
#4. Lock-in Scenario: In a lock-in scenario, it’s important to provide prompt attention when an animal is trapped in your attic. Situations where a critter gets trapped due to repair work, such as roof fixing, can cause serious damage, or harm to the critter itself, in an attempt to escape. If you find yourself in this situation, you’ll need an emergency animal removal. It’s very important to seek humane wildlife control services to take care of the job for you. A knowledgeable and experienced wildlife technician will create an exit point somewhere on your roof or in your soffit, and install a one-way door to ensure the squirrel or raccoon can safely exit the attic without causing harm to itself or your house. If you’ve heard noises but you put off calling us, a dead animal removal service might be required and it’s an important part of this process to prevent any health or odour issues. Don’t wait, act fast to ensure the safety of both you and the trapped critter.
#5. Snake in the Home or Business: It’s easy to underestimate the potential danger of a snake slithering loose in your home or business, but it’s a big deal. Whether it’s a harmless garter snake or a potentially dangerous species, it’s important to call the right place. For the smaller ones, most of the time wildlife control companies can help you by removing the snake and releasing it outside. However, if this is something large or potentially venomous, then calling 311 emergency services for assistance would be better. In Southern Ontario, the most common species of snake you may encounter is the eastern garter snake, but there are also several venomous species such as the Eastern Massasauga rattlesnake. By calling 311, an animal control officer can deal with the emergency and safely remove the snake from your home or business and transport it to a nearby shelter for inspection and identification. Don’t risk getting bitten by attempting to catch the snake yourself – call emergency services for professional help.The presence of a snake, particularly if venomous, in a home or business, is an emergency that requires a professional removal to ensure safety.
#6. Nesting Wildlife in Critical Areas: When it comes to nesting wildlife in critical areas, such as electrical boxes or HVAC units, it is imperative to take swift action in order to protect against significant damage and safety concerns that come hand in hand with these types of situations. Critters such as birds and squirrels will often seek out these little nooks and crannies, these secure and warm shelters for their young. The problem is, is that they can end up causing certain issues like chewed wires or blockages, and these hazardous situations require immediate professionalism and experienced removal technicians to deal with the removal asap. Though it may be tempting to leave the cute and cuddly creatures be, the consequences of doing so can lead to costly damage, safety concerns, and the need for expensive repairs. In order to stay safe and keep your property secure, always keep an eye out for nesting fauna in critical areas and act fast to remove them.

Young Wildlife Separated from Mother
When it comes to dealing with wildlife conflicts in urban areas in Ontario, it’s important to know the resources available to you. Fortunately, many cities have animal services divisions that provide wildlife control in specific scenarios. One such scenario is when you come across young wildlife, either orphaned or abandoned. It’s important to take action quickly, as these vulnerable critters can quickly fall victim to other animals or even humans. Additionally, conflicts can arise when babies become separated from their mother and starts to roam around areas with heavy human activity.

A Skunk Stuck in Window Well, Pool, Post Hole, or Garbage Can
Encountering wildlife issues like this can be quite unsettling, especially when it involves critters like skunks that are known for their ability to spray. Fear and hesitation are common reactions to such situations, but it’s important to know what steps to take to address the issue promptly. If you’re in Ontario and you come across a nuisance pest stuck in a window well, pool, post hole, calling your city’s animals services division at #311 is your best bet for free help. If something is in your garbage can, you can gently tip it over on its side so the furry critter can climb out on its own. With regards to a window well, sometimes you can have luck by dropping down a piece of 2 x 4 wood or an old blanket or towel, the skunks can climb out from there on their own, but timely intervention is essential in these scenarios as terrified creatures may cause harm to themselves or residents. Remember, raccoons and skunks are most active in the evening, so keep a watch out for any signs of trouble and don’t hesitate to seek assistance if needed.

At our company, we specialize in providing top-notch solutions to your wildlife problems. Our team of experts can handle a wide range of critters including squirrel and raccoon removal and also birds, skunks, opossums, bats, and more. We understand that dealing with wild animals can be a challenging and frightening experience, especially when they’ve made themselves at home in hard-to-reach places like up in your roof, under your shed or deck, or in your soffit.

Our commitment to providing humane and effective solutions has earned us a reputation as one of the most trusted names in the industry. If you’re dealing with a pesky critter problem, you can count on us to get it resolved and done right.
- Is having a company provide wildlife removal safe for the animals?
Wildlife control and removal is indeed safe and humane for the animals involved. The process involves inspecting the exterior of your home and attaching a strong wire mesh over the entry point, installing a one-way door that allows all the other animals to come out for water or food but not get back in. This method eliminates the need for catching or trapping the animals, which reduces the risk of contact and interaction between humans and wildlife. However, in cases where there are newborn babies, manual removal is necessary. Our technicians will perform an attic search to extract them by hand. Squirrels are active during daylight hours, whereas raccoons and skunks are nocturnal creatures, hence would most likely exit the one-way door at night. In conclusion, removing the wildlife this way is a humane solution to your problems, ensuring the safety of both the animals and homeowners alike.
- How quickly can you respond to a wildlife emergency?
Our emergency response is swift and efficient, aiming to address your concerns as quickly as possible. We understand the urgency of a situation needing squirrel removal or raccoon removal. Depending on your area, we are sometimes able to book you in for the same day or the next.
- Do you provide service for both residential and commercial properties?
Yes, we offer humane removal services and wildlife control services for all types of properties in the Greater Toronto Area.
- What are some preventive measures I can take to avoid wildlife encounters?
There are usually specific vulnerable spots on every roof that raccoons and squirrels can get into more easily than others. We can provide you with tailored advice and solutions to minimize the chances of future wildlife species encounters on your property.
- Are Wildlife Control and Pest Control Services the same? No, actually. Wildlife removal, pest control/rodent control? They’re different types of businesses. If you are dealing with an unwanted critter in your home, it’s important to know the difference between wildlife control and pest control services. Do you have a skunk under your deck, or do you need mice removal done? In Ontario, there are many options available to you for both. Wildlife control is the answer if you’re dealing with raccoons, squirrel removal, skunks, opossums, bats, a bird, or any other larger critter that has made its way into your home. Specialists can safely and humanely remove the animals and get them to move back into the wild. On the other hand, if you’re dealing with any pest like bugs, or need mice removal, or you have rats, calling a pest control services expert is the way to go. Pest control exterminators use poison, chemicals, and traps to deal with rodent control efficiently. It’s important to remember that everything is trying to stay warm in the cold weather, and both wildlife and pests will seek shelter during the winter months, making it essential to take action promptly. So, if you’re dealing with wildlife problems or have an unwanted pest in your home, make sure to enlist the help of the appropriate inspection and service to ensure your home or commercial properties stay safe and free of any pests. Different exterminator companies, or ‘pest control services’ as it’s more commonly known, can be found on the internet.
