urban wildlife control

My partner and I have successfully used Brad's services in the past and have no current wildlife issues, thanks to AAA Gates. I also want to commend Brad for his sponsorship of the new Furbearers’ Defenders’ podcasts coming out of B.C. It’s great when commercial enterprises have humane commitments to animals and to the people concerned about them.

Thanks, Erika Ritter

Hi Erika, I want to thank you for your kind words. I consider myself very fortunate to have turned my childhood passion into a successful business. I have been promoting animal welfare throughout my entire career and when the Furbearer Defenders approached me my initial thought was what a great opportunity to work with an amazing organization and get the message out.

addressing a squirrel problem

Last year they addressed the issue with squirrels in the soffit and this year they addressed it at no cost. Boris and the whole team were really amazing and they are outstanding to deal with!
I was recommended them by a friend who I now consider a great friend for giving me this recommendation!!!

Removing Squirrels from roof

After using other wildlife removal services that were extremely unsuccessful we decided to try AAA Gates Wildlife control. We're upset we didn't call them sooner. The squirrels were gone in just a matter of days, and everything was sealed up correctly. The follow ups were greatly appreciated too. It's been 4 months without any squirrels. Highly recommend.

Wildlife problem

I called AAA Gates Wildlife Control on Aug.21,2013 because of a racoon problem and the company sent Justin to my house in Brampton the same day. What a relief! Justin was very knowledgeable, professional, honest and polite. We discussed preventative measures to ensure racoons won't become a problem again. I had the roof and plumbing vent mats screened. AAA Gates Wildlife Control has been around since 1984 and I would recommend this company to my family and friends. Great job Justin. Sally from Brampton.

removal of racoons from roof

The Toronto Wildlife Rescue recommended your company and I'm very glad they did. Chris is terrific--he was punctual, knowledgeable, and most importantly very clearly explained the entire racoon situation to me, I would recommend this company to anyone with wildlife problems.

Squirrel from Fireplace

We found your company name on the internet and we very pleased with the service. We will certainly recommend your company to anyone in our neighbourhood who has sounds coming from their fireplace. Your technician, Nick, was very professional, incredibly patient dealing with the squirrel. It was a safe removal. Excellent and timely service from the initial telephone call to the completion of the job. The cost was reasonable.

Raccoon Removal

Gates Wildlife Control responded immediately to my call regarding raccoons in my attic and resolved the issue the next day. Justin was polite, punctual, and professional. Cost was reasonable but you can't put a price on peace and quiet!

Wildlife Control/Raccoons

After reading many positive reviews about Gates, I decided to contact them with the hope that they could help me deal with my serious raccoon problem.

The short story is that raccoons were suddenly able to get under my house (I have no basement) due to a proximity and decaying foundation problem with my neighbour that impacted my property. Joel from Gates came to assess this and came up with a solution that I thought completely reasonable, but was unsure if it would ultimately work, given the issues. The price was very fair and I decided to give it a try. In the end, the work was solid and Joel was a total pro. He resolved the problem and was completely diplomatic with my neighbour, who factored into the equation as it affected his property as well. Totally satisfied and would recommend Gates to anyone with wildlife issues who want confident, professional service!

Bird's nest removal

Joel came by, asked about the situation, took a look and quickly resolved the situation. He was polite, precise and provided good information and service. Based on the experience, would recommend their service favourably.

Raccoon control

One Saturday a few weeks ago I was on the garage roof cleaning the eaves-troughs and to my surprise came face to face with a large and not very happy raccoon. When he scurried away I found that he had started tearing up shingles, and he'd also been using our side garden and garden shed roof as his personal washroom, Although I hadn't seen any evidence that he had penetrated the roof into the attic I call AAA Gates to be sure. I wasn't home but my wife reported that Chris the technician arrived right on time and was extremely competent and knowledgeable, He screened off possible entry points, including the chimneys, pruned away overhanging branches from our 3 oak trees that gave the raccoon a jumping off point and even repaired a fallen downspout that Mr. R had pulled down trying to climb higher and which I had unsuccessfully tried to fix myself He also gave some good advice about how to discourage our furry guest in the future. When I got home that evening I inspected the work and was satisfied that Chris had done an excellent job. Highly recommended.
