Squirrel nest removal

Couldn't be happier with the service from Gates Wildlife Control. I called in the morning to book an onsite consultation. A rep came that same day, gave us a lay of the land and completed the work. David was friendly, knowledgable and efficient. He removed the nest and blocked off a few areas of concerns on the roof. Very happy with how everything worked out. Definitely recommend!

A Loyal Customer

Over the past 33 years, Gates Wildlife Control has come to my home several times to remove squirrels and install preventative netting. Today Blake came to see if raccoons had entered my attic. I was told there would be no charge for the initial call. And indeed, Blake reported that there were no signs of entry and that I could rest easy.
I have complete faith in the honesty and effectiveness of this company.
Thank you!

Great for Wildlife removal but...

Quick, kind and courteous for removing the wildlife (raccoon) from our attic. Unfortunately, the piece of soffit the raccoon used to get in was left open, and mice got in. I had to hire another company to remove the next pest and fix the space that the raccoon opened.

While I realize that AAA Gates mentions specifically that they don't make repairs to roofs and stuff, we had closed the piece of soffit ourselves earlier. It was much harder to do with the raccoon proofing in place.

Company Response

Hi Anita, thank you for your review and for your kind words about my company. I am sorry if there was a misunderstanding but I wanted to make mention that our company does make repairs to roofs and soffits to keep the animals out but in cases where the animals (especially raccoons) have bent or ripped the aluminum beyond repair, it is extremely difficult to put it back to its original shape. I equate it to crumpling a piece of aluminum foil and then trying to open it up and return it to its "on the roll" form. Repairing damaged aluminum soffit often requires that the homeowner hires an aluminum installation company to install a new piece of aluminum. This was likely explained to you and is what you are referring to when you mentioned we don't make repairs. New aluminum replacement, matching colour, style and size is a service offered by specific companies specializing in this field. While it is possible that mice were entering through the area that you mentioned, it is worth pointing out that mice can fit through a space the size of a dime and unfortunately every home has hundreds of openings that allow mice to enter, making it impossible to completely mouse proof a house. I hope my explanation helps, if you wish to discuss this further I can be reached at bradgates@gateswildlifecontrol.com.

Raccoon removal and repairs

Raccoons had created a hole in our porch roof and while using the space to sleep they managed to damage the ceiling of the porch significantly. Joel installed a one way door. Three days later he fixed the hole. He was so pleasant and reassuring. We were very impressed and grateful. Would totally recommend AAA Gates Wildlife Control.

Soffit fix against raccoons

It was an excellent all around service. The technician helped me understand the problem while providing exceptional customer service and fixing the problem.

They also kept to time. Arrived on time and finished the work in no time.

Wildlife control -raccoon in wall-

A critter was scratching through our entrance wall. Joel immediately saw the issue and found raccoon fur at the entry point. He promptly set a one way out door and after a few days passed, Joel rechecked the site and sealed the entry shut. Joel also found a few smaller problematic holes and went out of his way to seal them. Thx Joel for your expertise and efficiency fixing our issue. You were recommended by our neighbour and we’d recommend you to all our friends and family.

Squirrel Removal From Attic - Fast, Effective & Reasonably Priced

Gates came out three hours after my telephone call. They conducted a thorough inspection of my roof and eaves. They covered up three "possible" squirrel entry points with wire mesh and put a one way door onto the "probable" entry point. It worked, and the squirrel left my attic. Gates came back and removed the one way door and covered up the entry point. They also installed six wire mesh covers over my plastic roof vents to prevent raccoon entry. I was impressed with their fast, efficient and reasonably priced service. Highly recommended.

Squirrels will now have to find a new home

Squirrels had entered the attic through a roof vent. Chris arrived promptly found where they had entered, sealed off all the roof vents and toilet venting pipes leaving the one vent with a one way door until all squirrels had exited, came back and finished the job. I am very satisfied with the work performed.
