Although it is easy to stop raccoons from entering your home, it is not easy to evict it from your roof, wall, or porch. There are provincial laws that guard wildlife such as raccoons, squirrels, and skunks from harm.
We, therefore, recommend that you hire a professional wildlife control technician who follows all regulations to permanently remove the raccoons. Laws prohibit you from killing raccoons and other wildlife or taking them more than a kilometre away from where they are trapped.
Raccoon Removal Toronto Cost – Raccoons and Their Removal
As raccoons have adapted to the presence of humans in their environment, they have become increasingly willing to move into Toronto attics without fear.
Their populations have grown over the years as they enjoy a life filled with easily accessible food and plenty of space to roam.

When Do Raccoons Have Babies and Will It Cost More When Hiring a Wildlife Control Company?
In Toronto, raccoons breed during the months ranging from January to May. Therefore, these are the months when this animal is actively looking for a way to break into your attic. Female raccoons prefer to live in a warm, quiet space to raise their young without fear of predators.
Raccoons want to protect their young and will rip open soffit on the roof to gain entry. If the attic is inaccessible to the females, they will look for an area beneath a porch, deck, or shed. Raccoons have also been known to crawl into uncapped chimneys in search of a nesting area.
Litters generally average three to five babies, known as kits. Some litters are as large as seven young. The gestation period is approximately two months. This means that all kits are born between the months of March and June. Generally, the young will live with the mother until the next spring, when they strike out on their own, making room for a new litter.

Why Do Some Wildlife Control Companies Charge So Much For Squirrel And Raccoon Removal?
- Sub-Contracted Work – Some wildlife companies you call or email to book an appointment are not wildlife companies at all. They are actually Lead Generation Companies who do not do the work. Once booked, your appointment is sold to a wildlife company, this will add about $100 to your bill. Ask the right questions to avoid this.
- Large Staff – There is nothing wrong with the service provided by most of the bigger wildlife removal companies in Toronto. Bigger wildlife control companies simply tend to charge customers the highest price. It’s no secret that the wildlife control industry has a “slow season”. The staff is also under pressure to “SELL, SELL, SELL” extra, not always necessary screen & sprays at every job, to keep a high daily sales average that will carry them through the slower winter months.
- Pay Ads – Did you click a “PAY AD” online to find a wildlife control company. Top ads can cost a company $40 to $50 as soon as you click on their Pay Ad. It sometimes takes several of these clicks just to get one call, and guess who pays for this expense?
- At Affordable Wildlife Control, you get the best of both worlds. High quality service that doesn’t cost a fortune and is guaranteed to solve your problem.
