pieces of roofing on patio; remove any varmints from attic; repair roof

AS it turns out I had a good size raccoon (possibly pregnant) nesting in my attic. She had chewed a large hole through the roofing and literally thrown away the metal she encountered. That was on my patio. They checked the attic with infra-red and then by both going into the attic. Raccoon found but refused to leave. As they were preparing the roof with a trap, the raccoon left. No trap required. Fixed the hole and roof. extra wide wire screening to prevent her trying to get back in by chewing nearby. 1 year work warranty. Very polite; efficient. Cost included tax. Good job and avoided a family of baby raccoons.

Hi Daniel, I love how you described your raccoon problem from beginning to end. Most reviews only explain the end result. It was truly our pleasure to assist you with your raccoon eviction. It is customers like you that make our job more than just enjoyable. As far as customers go, you get a 10 star review from us! Thanks again!

Squirrel removal

Another company provided very expensive guaranteed service in 2019, however when similar problems resurfaced, I did not get a call back. I needed to look for another company to resolve the squirrel issue.

Nick Parkin, Technician, from AAA Gates Wildlife Control came In to take a look. He took photos of the work done by the other company. Nick identified the sloppy workmanship and inferior materials used. He said the company who installed the one way door on the roof should have come back to check that the squirrels were gone, remove the one way

door and seal off the area, which was the reason the squirrels got back in. Nick installed new steel cages over the roof vents, a one way door and put cages over other vents which could pose future problems, came back the next day to check, then removed the one way door and sealed off the area. He kept in touch by email and sent further follow up photos with details.

AAA Wildlife have been in business for 35 years and are registered with
the BBB with an A+ rating. I am so very satisfied with their work and
would not hesitate to recommend them highly.

Hi Mcurtis, it was a real pleasure reading your wonderful review! I like that you explained how our procedures, workmanship and service exceeded what you had experienced with the other company. I am sorry to hear that the other company did not return your call for guaranteed service. I can assure you that this will not happen with my company. All of our technicians work hard to provide above average service, treating each and every one of our valued customers exactly how we would want to be treated. I really appreciate you complimenting Nick for a job well done. Please accept my sincere THANKS for your comprehensive and thoughtful review!

remove squirrels from space above porch

Joel came Feb 26 to remove squirrels from the space above our porch. He immediately figured out how they had got in and installed a one way door to let them out but not in. A couple of days later, after the noise above the porch had stopped, Joel came back, as he had promised to do, removed the one way door, and sealed the damaged wall.

Joel explained clearly what he was doing and how the critters would not be harmed by the process. He was exceptionally pleasant and clearly has much affection for animals.

A totally positive, indeed uplifting, experience!

AAA Gates Wildlife Control

I've used AAA Gates for 25 years or more and have never, not once, been disappointed. In normal circumstances they show up on time and I've reached the stage where I no longer ask for a price as they have always been reasonable with their pricing.

This particular situation occurred the weekend prior to them offering Saturday or Sunday service, but, their technician agreed to come to help us and the varmint was allowed to exit peacefully by the installation of a one way trap installed where he entered.

All is back to normal and I have no hesitation in recommending this company for all your needs.

Squirrel removal

We had squirrels in our roof and called Gates Wildlife Control. Jake came out, evaluated the situation, informed us how he would proceed and went about his business. He put a one-way door at the opening, returned three days later to evaluate how many squirrels had left, and came back three days later again to remove the one-way door and seal the entrance. What a lovely and professional young man. Thank you Jake!

Raccoon removal from attic

A raccoon had made a hole in our roof to gain entrance to a sheltered place. We were made aware of it by the noise he made while removing shingles and roof planks. Blake, the technician from Gates Animal Control, very kindly and professionally explained the situation and had pictures supporting it. He also explained the process he will follow to solve the problem. After a couple of visits to confirm that the raccoon was gone, he completed the work and, so far, we had no further problems.

Squirrel Removal

My mother had squirrels in the attic which were removed quickly and efficiently. Wire was put on all the open wood so the squirrels would not return. Very happy with the service, price, and quality of work.

Awesome!!! Highly Recommended!

Gates Wildlife Control are great! Pete was professional, knowledgeable and did great work. He removed squirrels that have made homes in my walls due to my neighbor’s lack of maintenance on their side of their townhouse. I booked them because of good reviews and their statement of having over 35 years of experience. He also gave some good advice in contacting the City of Toronto to facilitate the process of having my neighbors fix their roof. The lady on the phone was also very nice every time I called which I really appreciated. They come and do a free estimate which is awesome, so give them a call if you think you’re having similar problems! They went far beyond my level of expectation and I highly recommend them!
