Squirrels in Attic

Ken came to the house at the scheduled time and was friendly and efficient. He installed a one way door at the point the squirrels were entering and reinforced the 4 vents etc. to prevent future problems. Would highly recommend SWAT.

Giant hole in roof!!

We heard animals in our attic and called to have them removed. Turns out they were getting in through a GIANT hole in our roof. Derek was amazing! He promptly arrived, as scheduled, told us the situation on the roof (took pictures to show us) and was able to fix the problem in a timely manner. This is our second time using SWAT Wildlife and I would definitely use them again. Thanks for the great work, Derek!

Squirrels

We had squirrels that moved into our soffits and called SWAT Wildlife. The staff were friendly and an appointment was promptly made. Ken came, and despite snow on the roof, went up and rectified the problem and then explained some preventive options to us which we decided to do. Ken followed up with us a few days later to make sure the squirrels were out, which they were and have not returned. Thank you Ken and the SWAT Wildlife team!

Squirrels in ceiling

We had 3 prior pest control services in previously with no success, and were feeling hopeless. They were EXTREMELY responsive, coming within 24 hours, very respectful and professional in their interactions (e.g., taking off shoes in house), AND most importantly, we are now free of squirrels in our house. I would recommend them without reservation.

Squirrels in attic

We heard noise in our attic. I read the reviews on home stars and decided to call swat wildlife. Derick came promptly and figured out that there were squirrels and where they were coming in from. The problem areas were fixed and we have not had any problems since then. Derick is knowledgable and is very good at explaining how he will approach and solve the problem. The price was reasonable and I would highly recommend swat.

Bat Problem Solved

I thought we had a rat problem. It turns out we had a bat hiding between the stone brick and trim just below the roof. After reading many reviews on Homestars, I decided on SWAT. Derick came to my home on time. Since I left droppings in front of the porch, when I went out to meet him, he immediately verified that they were bat droppings. Derick explained that the stone brick and the trim just below roof created a gap where bats can hide. Before discussing options, he checked the attic to make sure no bats entered the interior. Then he laid out the options and made a suggestion as to the best course of action. He was very friendly, patiently answered all questions, and very professional. He did a clean and thorough job placing galvanized steel mesh in all the gaps. While doing this, he heard some noise and said the bat was in the gap at that moment. He made a one way door for the bat to leave but never return. He also placed wired mesh on 13 roof vents so bats will not be able to find any way into the attic (preventative action). After giving the go ahead, I was so fearful that Derick, while installing the mesh may do something to cause a leak. He assured me that he had a lot of experience working on the roof and I had nothing to worry about. The next day, we had a downpour in the evening. I went into the attic to check and there were no signs of leaking. Derick advised me to call them after the bat had left to close the one way door (this service was included in the original price). There were droppings the next morning, but no more after the second day. Instead of calling to close the door right away, I decided to wait until the fall, just to make sure. I called SWAT recently to request the closing of the one way door. Bruce came this time. Again, like Derick, he was very friendly, all smiles, answered all of my questions, and he was very professional. He did a great job closing up the door. He also removed 2 small wasps’ nests just above the second floor windows (very appreciative). I would not hesitate to call SWAT again if I have any more wildlife issues. Thanks guys for an awesome job!

Raccoons in the Attic

I want to thank you and commend your technician (Derrick) who today attended to the problem of raccoons in the attic at my mother\'s house on Wychcrest Ave. in Toronto. He arrived at the appointed time and was professional and courteous. He took time to show and explain what he was doing to remediate the problem. After completing the job in a satisfactory manner, he also explained the follow up services to ensure my confidence in his and your company\'s service. A job well done and appreciated.

Kind Regards,
Bing Wong

Animal removal and prevention.

My wife and I started hearing random scratching/burrowing noises coming from the attic above our bedroom. I did my research on numerous wildlife removal companies in the GTA. I called them all and asked a series of questions which were recommended by a professional wildlife website. Swatwildlife passed all questions with flying colours. I booked an appointment with them right away. My technician, Ken, was early, which is outstanding. He was very professional, respectful, knowledgeable, but most importantly, honest. He checked my roof thoroughly as well as my attic. He reported that the culprit was a squirrel. He set the one way trap door and recommended, not pushed, some prevention tips. They use 16 GA steel for screening, which is very hard to buy (and you would have to buy an excess amount). I called back and booked the prevention. Again, Ken was early and started to work right away. I myself am handy and I was very impressed with the level of workmanship that was done for the price. I would recommend Swatwildlife to anyone who has a critter issue. Thank you to Ken and Swatwildlife.

Raccoons

Have been hearing noises off and on in our porch and fire place and just hoped the raccoons would go away, but when I seen urine dripping down the wall that was it!
A Google search lead me to Homestars site and Swat Wildlife had a good rating so I gave them a call. Sure enough, Ken form SWAT Wildlife was at my place the next day, on time, ready to deal with the bandits.
One way doors were installed and after a few days all the raccoons were out and the entry was sealed off.
Additionally, Swat was able to repair the flashing which was lose for a small fee.
I would highly recommend SWAT Wildlife, they were on time and very professional.
