Squirrel/Racoon proofing our new home

The second morning in our new house we heard some scratching above the ceiling and quickly found out that while the house had been vacant, squirrels had scratched out a little home in the attic. There had been a similar problem in our rental last year, and our landlord had used Gates. They had seemed happy enough with them that we had asked them for the number when a neighbour had a similar problem - so we had the number handy.

At 7:30am we phoned and left a message, and at 8:30 they phoned us back. At 10:30 Tony was here, looked around, explained the problem, and an hour or so later the house was practically a critter-proof fortress; every possible entrance way was locked up, except for one where he installed a one way door; then they came back a couple days later to seal that up, so that there were no and would be no more unpaying tenants in the attic. During his inspection he found that racoons were trying their hardest to get into a roof vent, and sealed that up, too; one problem solved, one problem prevented.

My fiancee was so pleased with the work that she tried to give Tony a tip, which he politely declined.

We recommend these guys without hesitation.

Squirrel in attic

We had a family of squirrels in our attic. This company was completely professional and courteous. They got rid of the pests, patched up the hole and we have not had a problem since. 100% Satified. Thanks

Squirrel in the Attic

I live in a townhouse complex and somehow a squirrel got in our attic! Tried to put some mothballs up there to deter them but it didn't work. I called this company and they had their technician Stephen come take a look. Right away, he found the opening in my neighbour's roof. Very knowledgeable and professional is his work. He installed a one-way trap and then came back the following week to patch up the hole. Squirrels are gone and both me and my neighbour haven't had a problem since. I would highly recommend these guys.

Raccoon in the attic

The problem started in the attic, the raccoons got in and the noise at night was unbearable. Peter from AAA Wildlife Control came and explained in detail what he was going to do. He was in no rush, the job was done the raccoon never came back. The follow-up was very important.

Squirrel Removal

We're in a large semi-detached house and had a squirrel problem. We weren't sure where the problem originated. (Hint: it was the neighbours' house!) In the end, we didn't really care where the problem originally started, we just wanted it solved.

AAA came out for a visit and dealt with everything promptly. Unfortunately, they weren't able to secure the entire house the first time around, so we called again. When they came back, they found another hidden hole. But the problem persisted.

In total, they were back 4 times with follow-up visits. Every time, they were prompt and friendly. And they never charged a dime beyond the initial fee.

This kind of work is tough -- you can't always walk away saying the problem is solved, though I'm sure some companies do. AAA stood by their work and their estimate, and we're now squirrel-free in '08!

Great experience.

Racoons in Our Chimney

We had really been suffering with the racoons that were living in our chimney (smell, flies). AAA Wildlife Control was quick, courteous and humane. They were a pleasure to deal with and solved our problem in a way we felt good about. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend them. In fact, we have!

squirrel, pigeon removal

They removed some squirrels in the roof humanely. One was accidently still trapped inside when the mesh was screwed into place. They came back the next day (on a Saturday)put a one-way door on and the squirrel got out.So they did have to come out several times but they were quick to my phone calls.They are pricey but they are very good!

Skunk Removal

So far the skunk hasn't been able to get back under our porch! In the Fall we had a skunk living under our porch. Called AAA Wildlife Control and they very efficiently and humanely lured the skunk out and then installed a wire fence under our porch. We still see evidence of the skunk trying to get back in, sometimes we walk outside in the morning to find a new pile of dirt collecting and the exposed fence - but the critter hasn't made it in! Very effective.
