Raccoon service

When a hole opened up in our deck this summer and let in several raccoons, SWAT did an excellent job of installing an exit-only door and adding mesh to the insecure areas. Very efficient, and they even gave me a small discount based on the unique location of the open areas of the deck. They even addressed the one negative review on this site! Highly recommended.

Squirrel Removal and Squirrelproofing

After hearing scratching in my ceiling, I decided to check Homestars for a highly rated company to remove the critters and repair any entry points. I am thrilled that SWAT Wildlife lived up to their recommendations. Derick was very professional, knowledgeable and helpful.

He brought me along with his inspection and showed me how the red squirrels were getting in and out of my attic. Major gaps behind the fascia required extensive screening to protect against further intrusion. After careful consideration I decided to fix the problem once and for all.

Derick and his Tech, Erick did a good job, using quality heavy gauge screening and a one-way door. I recommend SWAT Wildlife to anyone who needs wildlife removed humanely.

Removal of squrrels in the attic

I heard scratching in the attic space of our house and called SWAT to come and check it out. Eric the technician did a survey and saw two places where squirrels had lifted flashings to get an entry. He closed one with mesh and installed a one way door at the other which had the appearance of being used the most.
Within two days the problem was solved, no noises and most of all no squirrels.
This company is highly recommended by me to anyone with similar issues.

Wildlife in my attic?

After hearing what I believed to be squirrels or roofrats in my home, I knew I had to hire a professional to take a look

Although several Pest control companies have good reviews an Homestars. I hired SWAT based on their ethical/ environmental concerns for the wildlife that they deal with. Derrick and Eric of SWAT offered prompt , friendly and efficient service. SWAT came to my home within 30 hours of my contacting them at a time of my choosing and after inspecting my roof and checking my attic ,Eric assured me that what I was hearing was most likely a nest of birds in the eaves trough at the front of my house.

What impressed me most was how quickly they returned my call and how they took the time to listen to my concerns before I even hired them. Thanks SWAT !

Racoon Deterence

Our home in Toronto is apparently "racoon heaven" complete with an extensive roof top garden and decking.

Since moving in two years ago, we have had racoon traffic, growling and vicious fights right outside of our bedroom window which faces onto the rooftop garden. In addition, we have had considerable damage to our ceiling in one part of the house.

After several trial and error experiences with other companies and methods, we met with Derick and his team from SWAT Wildlife. They clearly explained their approach, the costs and the one-year guarantee for their work.

They located the racoon access points and sealed them off with wire meshing. It worked perfectly for a few weeks until the racoons ate and clawed their way through another part of the deck to get to where they wanted to live.

Derick and his team made at least 10 additional visits to address the problem. Despited our offers to pay them extra for all of the trips last summer, they politely declined citing their guarantee...along with a professional determination not to be beaten by the racoons.

It worked until this year when the racoons "burrowed" through the dirt in one of the planters to regain access. This time Derick sealed of the entire space with wire. Once we knew the racoons were out of the space, He sealed it off further...during a rainstorm. We insisted on paying for his materials as the guarantee had expired months ago.

It seems to have been the perfect solution. They did what they said they would do, when they said they would do it and within the stated price.

And, they're attitudnally perfect. We would give them a higher score if there was one.

removal of bats in an attic

I am the Property Manager of a townhouse complex in Pickering. An owner had a bat flying around in their unit and was quite hysterical about the situation. She went through the phone book and contacted a company that increased her hysteria and their fee to do the work was exhorbitant and unnecessary and mentioned to her that all other units in the townhouse complex should be inspected as well, causing the owner to go door to door creating an atmosphere of anxiety. I called S.W.A.T. and was instantly reassured that they would handle the problem with the utmost professionalism and experience. The appointment was made immediately, the work was done for half the price and the owner was completely satisfied with the results. I would recommend S.W.A.T. over any other company on the market.

Racoon Removal

SWAT Wildlife exceeded my service expectations! The job was done professionally, cost effectively and on a timely basis. Derick was very helpful and went above the call of duty with this wildlife removal. He addressed all my questions and helped to ensure my house was protected against further racoon damage. I would highly recommend this company for any wildlife removal and I would definitely use this company again in the future.

Skunk riddins

We had a family of skunks that moved in to live under our cabana in the back yard. I called up Derick and he was very pleasant and polite. He quoted me a cost and said they would be there at a certain time and date and he was very prompt. He showed up with Eric who helped get rid of the varmits. Within 3 hours they had trenched around the cabana inserted the high gauge strong wiring fence and covered the fencing back up with the dirt and stone that was there prior. The job was done quickly, neatly and professionally. Not only were they the most reasonably priced, but you got more than what we paid for we felt. Good work guys! I’d highly recommend these guys for any pesky critter jobs

Racoons in chimney

I called SwatWildlife and got a very personable lady on the phone that assured me Swat was a totally humane company (that was of the utmost importance to us). I was given an appointment for the next day, which was sooner than I expected.Our problem was with racoons in our chimney, the technician was very knowledgeable and immediately went to work to solve our problem. We were most impressed that he explained how to prevent future destruction and by SwatWildlife taking care of these areas in advance we have had no futher problems.
I certainly would recommend this company, in all areas right from the initial phone conversation until the job was completed, they were very professional.
