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!

Squirrels in attic space

5 star service! We called them due to a suspected squirrel nest in our soffit / attic space. Booking is handled well, and you get a reminder call about your appointment a day or so in advance of the appointment.

Pricing is transparent and reasonable. Joel showed up right on time and was great to work with, and very knowledgeable. Highly recommend AAA Gate's Wildlife Control.

Gentle removal of Mrs. Fox and Family

Mrs. Fox and her family had made a home under our deck, in a remote inaccessible corner. Each day Mrs. Fox would kill a rabbit, or a squirrel, or a mouse or two, proudly displaying it in my yard. Her four babies played endlessly in my yard, and at night made bizarre noises which sounded like a cross between barking and babies' cries. So along came Blake from Gates Wildlife Control. He told me with confidence that we would be rid of the foxes soon. He installed wire screens with a one-way door, so not only would the foxes exit and not return, but no other wildlife could enter the deck area in the future. Blake was professional, courteous and completely in control of the situation, which was immensely helpful given the wildlife that had taken over my backyard.

Squirrel removal

Squirrel were scratching day and night and made a hole in the soffit and a small opening in the bricks further. I called gates and the next day Nick showed up. He was very pleasant, polite and answered very patiently all my questions . He was not too concerned about the small hole but put the trap on the big one. The next day I heard movement and the small hole got bigger. called gates and Nick showed again and resolved my problem. Thank you Nick

Raccoon removal

After hearing some alarming noises comeing from my attic, I contacted Gates Wildlife Control. They sent Jake to my home to assess the problem. He looked at the roof, the soffits and in my attic. Raccoons were in the soffits and luckily for me, not in the attic. Jake completed a detailed estimate on fixing the problem, repairing the damage the raccoons had done and some preventative work on my roof vents. I thought the estimate was affordable and Jake did all the work that day, plus installed a oneway door at the raccoon entrance. Later that night the raccoons left, and couldn't get back in. He came back in a couple of days to make sure all raccoons had left and then sealed off the entrance. Jake was very courteous and considerate of the social distancing caused by Covid-19. I would highly recommend this company.

Raccoon removal from soffit

We can’t thank Gates (and specifically Joel) for the fantastic service we received! We called and were able to have Joel come next day after witnessing a raccoon climb up our brick wall and through a hole in the soffit (that the raccoon created!). We’ve had various pest/wildlife issues since January, and within two weeks of that initial visit we were finally DONE! He came to our house at least five times over that two week period, entered our attic twice and eventually persevered to find and extract five babies and the mother raccoon from our roof. Everyone else we called gave up or told us we were probably stuck with them until they were big enough to leave. We are so relieved to finally have our house back!! The best part is that we were about to pay for a costly repair to the roof to fix the raccoon damage - Joel even took care of that! This is truly a one stop shop, and although it seems expensive at first glance, it’s absolutely worth every penny. Thank you!!!!

Raccoons in the Attic

Brad and Cassandra did a great job removing a very persistent Mom and her 5 babies. Brad quickly identified where she made her way in and patched it, added a one way door. About 1 hour day 1. If she did not yet have her babies then she would have ideally left on her own thru the one way door... but within 1 hour hour I heard the babies. Day 2 Brad and Cassandra were back exploring the attic and of course the area was inaccessible from the attic. They carefully cut thru the office cathedral ceiling and removed the 5 babies and put them safely out side in a heated box. Day 3 Mom took 3 babies away... unfortunately back into the attic over then master bedroom. Day 4 Brad and Cassandra now returned for the 4th time to bring the babies back out. Day 5 Mom had now pulled another soffit apart and had 4 of the babies hidden again in the attic. Cassandra again found them to keep the babies out and together. Week 2 they were back again a couple of times to attend to any areas we had concerns as the mom was actively looking for her babies. Thanks problem solved!

Hi LBH, Thank you for your play by play or should I say day by day report of how your job unfolded. Every now and then we run across a mother raccoon that is determined to stay in the house that it chose. It was truly a pleasure working with you and your husband and I totally understand if you don't want to see us again anytime soon. lol.

Squirrel Removal

I believe the young man's name was David. He arrived on schedule, on time. As expected from AAA Gates he was pleasant, efficient and gets an A+++ for a job well done.
