I had a very determined mother squirrel that was making a nest in my chimney - now just hot water heater vent. So happy to have found Gates
listed on Toronto Wildlife Rescue website. Friendly from first phone call. Jake came out on the most miserable of days - cold and raining - he was friendly and informative, and got to figuring out what would be needed right away. Fortunately, the squirrel had not had any babies yet, so Jake cleared out what he could from the liner, and screened it off until i could get a new vent top installed. What a relief. Anyway, very friendly, informative and helpful. I would certainly be confident in referring the company to anyone who asked me. And, while i hope i don’t have any more issues, won’t hesitate to call them again.
Nick came the morning after I called complaining about an attic intruder. Nick is personable and knowledgeable and got right to work assessing the house exterior and the attic. After finding evidence of a raccoon intruder he closed up the entry points and set up a one-way door baited with a peanut butter treat. He asked me to listen for the sound of babies and to report if I heard any. Two days later, Nick returned to check the one-way door which has a trigger showing it had been used. Yay! I am not hearing any more attic tenants! I hope my raccoon friend finds a new home in the conservation area across the street. Thanks Nick for providing a humane method to evict my furry friend.
Contacted Gates Wildlife Control as we had mother raccoon and babies in our attic. They came out the next day and explained the process. They went in the attic and rescued the babies (4 of them) and put them in a cage that the mother could get to. And just like he explained, the mother took the babies and relocated them. We had screens put on each vent and it was all done in 2 days! Remarkable service and would highly recommend this company.
Hi Jonesey, I love the fact that you referred to our service as "Remarkable", you just made my week. Thank you for explaining the process of reuniting the mother with her babies on the outside of house, this will help potential customers understand our humane approach.

Gates employees are very pleasant to work with and efficient at what they do. They inspected two properties for me and in both cases red squirels had taken up residence in the roof. They put in the "one way" doors and the squirels were removed
Hello, thank you for allowing us to humanely remove wildlife from not just one but two of your properties. I also appreciate your comment regarding how pleasant we are to work with.

A raccoon invaded my house and was walking around inside the walls. My internet search for help led me to the YouTube channel. I was expecting a YouTube star, but Nick came. :) Nick explained the problems and the solutions very clearly and got to work right a way. The follow up work was done promptly and professionally as well. Nick was very professional and courteous and became a real star to our family.
Hi JC, it is unfortunate that I wasn't available to provide you with my autograph. On the other hand you had someone as equally capable come and solve your raccoon problem. Thank you for speaking so highly about Nick and my company. If you haven't already subscribed to our Youtube channel, you should. You won't want to miss any of our adventures.

Pete from AAA Gates Wildlife Control helped effectively and efficiently address the problem of raccoons in the roof. Pete inspected the roof, provided a summary of his findings. He then created a 1 way door for the raccoons & lured them out with peanut butter. He then came by on 2 occasions to ensure that they were out then removed the 1 way door. They were out within days. I highly recommend this company.
Hi CMD, thank you for your concise and complimentary review of Pete and our procedures. I appreciate any future recommendations that you may send our way. Brad Gates, B.Sc., Owner / President, HomeStars Best of Award Winner for 7 years in a row (2021, 2020, 2019, 2018, 2017, 2016, 2015).
Within 1 day of calling Nick came by. He was very knowledgeable and quickly evaluated our roof and installed a 1 way door. By the third day the racoon left and Nick came by again to take out the door. It was very quick and painless. We were very satisfied with this service.
Hi Revital, thank you for your excellent review and for complimenting Nick on a job well done I appreciate how you nicely summed up your experience with Nick. Brad Gates, B.Sc., Owner / President, HomeStars Best of Award Winner for 7 years in a row (2021, 2020, 2019, 2018, 2017, 2016, 2015).
I want to acknowledge the integrity and professionalism of Gates'. They came to our home less than 24 hours after being called, thoroughly inspected our property (interior and exterior) and let us know that we did not have a wildlife issue. Their assessment was free and they even provided recommendations to help us better manage our space in terms of eliminating possible future wildlife issues. Thanks for your thoroughness and honesty!
Hello, thank you so much for commenting on our integrity and professionalism, it means the world to me! As in your case, it is not uncommon that we get called out for a perceived wildlife issue and find that the animals have not yet entered the attic. Hopefully you will not have a future issue but if you do you can count on us!
