Pest Control

Nick came (was running late due to weather conditions and called to let us know) and inspected the infested area. We thought it was a squirrel inside the wall and it turns out it was a wasp nest. Because it wasn’t wildlife, they were unable to remove the nest but there was no charge for the service. Nick was very professional and knowledgeable, giving us recommendations for pest control companies to contact. I would definitely use this company for all my wildlife removal again.

Hello, thank you for touching on a very important aspect of how I run my business. Unlike many service companies, we pride ourselves on giving our customers an exact time as to when we will arrive. If there is a circumstance that will delay (weather etc. ) our arrival we will call to update our time of arrival. We value our customers personal time and strive to arrive at a time that is convenient to them. I also appreciate your compliments of Nick for his professionalism and knowledge.

Squirrels between floors

Squirrels decided that the space between the first and second floor would be an excellent home for the winter. I called AAA Gates and they ended up having to come back at least four times to cover holes in my house. Silence at last! Thank you for willingly coming out so many times until the problem was solved.

Hello, thank you for your patience. As you found out, certain jobs can take a little longer to solve, especially when the animals being removed are incredibly persistent. It is important to add that regardless of the amount of visits it takes we do not charge more than the initial quoted amount. We won't give up on our customers. Thank you for the great review.

Wildlife Removal from attic

Heard noises in attic and after speaking with my neighbor who had the same issue, he recommended AAA Gates Wildlife and so glad he did! I called them at approximately 6:30pm and to my surprise the phone was answered by a live person, she was very nice and extremely helpful. Was able to get someone (Justin) out the next day and fix the issue. Justin communicated clearly, along with pictures, etc. Very trustworthy and would recommend AAA Gates to anyone who had the same or similar issues. Thank you Justin and team!!!

Consistently reliable service

Over year ago We were present at our daughter’s house when AAA Gates (Jake, at the time) fast and efficiently solved a raccoon issue. So, when squirrels invaded our home we did not hesitate at all to call again the same company. Response was fast, at exactly promised time. The technician, this time Nick, did a very thorough evaluation of the current problem, as well as potential future treats and offered us few solution options with the respective price quotes. After we made our decision and gave it a “go ahead” Nick performed all the work the very same day to our complete satisfaction. All this done in a very professional way with reassuring and kind attitude. Glad, we can still receive such consistently reliable service nowadays! We would confidently recommend AAA Gates Wild life control to anyone who might need it!

Hello Christoff, I love your title "Consistently reliable service". In my business it is terribly important to me that all of our employees exemplify a consistent high level of customer service. Your review confirms this. All of our technicians are extensively trained in both the technical aspect of our work but also on providing customer service excellence. I am extremely proud of the fact that our team of 10 technicians (10 trucks), consistently holds customer service in such high regard. Thank you very much for your review and for complimenting Jake and Nick on a job well done! Brad Gates, B.Sc., Owner / President, HomeStars Best of Award Winner 2019, 2018, 2017, 2016, 2015.

I can sleep again!

Squirrels took up residence in my ceiling. They were entering through multiple points that they had burrowed for themselves, removing slate tile on the slopped roof and chewing through wood and other building enclosures. It was a complex problem, and the first company we used was unable to solve it. We knew we needed to bring in the best, and, thanks to prior reviews, had the sense that AAA would be it. We were delighted that we received our first visit within I believe it was a day of the initial phone call. I want to extend my deep gratitude to Kieran, who solved this for us, with ingenuity. After the first holes were sealed, they were somehow still getting in. He traced their paw prints in the snow, finding an entry point at the adjacent home (it is a semi), that led the squirrels into my ceiling. Kieran - THANK YOU for your detective work, and your persistence in solving this. It has been a few weeks and - touch wood- they seem to be really gone. HALLELUJAH! I sleep full nights again without squirrels waking me up at dawn!! I had almost lost hope, and almost can't believe they are really gone. THANK YOU!!!!!!

Thank you also for complimenting Kieran on a job well done. I do know that Kieran is always up for a challenge and like all of our staff they won't stop until they get the problem solved. I am glad we were able to restore your full nights sleep. Brad Gates, B.Sc., Owner / President, HomeStars Best of Award Winner 2019, 2018, 2017, 2016, 2015.

Squirrels in Attic

As soon as I realized I had a squirrel hole in a corner of the gable of my house, I called Gates Wildlife Control. They arrived promptly at the agreed time, checked all areas around my roof, and then went to work to get rid of the squirrels, returning a couple of days later to make sure they were all gone, and to finish the job. Joel was friendly, informative, and efficient. 17 years ago, I called Gates about a serious pigeon problem I had, and they were the only company I called that offered a solution that worked. Joel worked on that one too! Based on my experiences, I can highly recommend Gates Wildlife Control.

Really Impressed!

We suspected squirrels getting into our attic and contacted AAA Gates Wildlife control, as they were recommended on our neighborhood Facebook page. They provided service very promptly and Joel was really knowledgeable, friendly and professional. He addressed the squirrel issue quickly and even inspected the entire roof and took pictures to show me potential problem areas. I learned a lot from him and would highly recommend them.

Expert Help and Peace of Mind

Feeling really secure and positive about our decision to hire Gates Wildlife Control to deal with a sudden and destructive raccoon 'invasion' of our dormers and attic. Wildlife technician Nick Parkin is a kind person and a consummate pro. He took the time to really listen to what was happening and to suggest the best course of action. From his initial consult to the install ...he was flexible, understanding and thorough. The installation of screens at raccoon-entry points was done cleanly and professionally. We are house proud and had concerns about how the mesh would look against the soffits and on our roof vents, but they were attached so securely and well. They look surprisingly good and do not at all detract from the 'look' of our roof and dormers. Most important will be how they work, of course, but I have confidence these screens will keep the varmints away. Not cheap !!!! Not at all....but professionalism and workmanship come at a cost...and tonight, we are confident we'll sleep ...peacefully critter-free... for the first time in a long time.

Hi Marianne, Wow! Reading your review has made my day, week and month. I cannot thank you enough for writing such a comprehensive review of your experience with my company. I love your comment about Nick being "a kind person and a consummate pro." Your description of how the screens looked "surprisingly good" is an important aspect for future customers to understand when reading your review. We train our technicians to treat our customers houses as if it was their own. Your final comment about sleeping peacefully critter-free is beautiful, we often talk in our morning meetings that we are selling peace of mind to our customers. Having had raccoons break into my own house recently, I now truly understand what our customers go through, loosing sleep and being stressed about the damage that is occurring. Thank you for allowing us to humanely solve your raccoon problem. Sweet dreams! Brad Gates, B.Sc., Owner / President, HomeStars Best of Award Winner 2019, 2018, 2017, 2016, 2015.

Great Service

Called Gates with a complaint about noise coming from our attic. I called early in the week and they were able to send someone out by the end of the week. Nick was the one to answer our service call and although he was running a little late he called and let me know and gave me an updated time. When Nick arrived at our home he was very friendly and put us at ease explaining what he does and what the process would be. After checking our exterior Nick showed us a photo of where the squirrels had made a hole and had gotten into our attic. After explaining what he was going to do Nick went to work. The job was done quickly without any damage to the property and Nick told us he would be back after the weekend to ensure that they were out and to seal the hole. True to his word Nick was back on the Monday to check and seal the hole. We are extremely satisfied with the work done and the care that the staff take with the home and homeowners. Thank you!!
