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.

Skunk family living under deck

My kids and I noticed a smell and noises coming from under our deck a couple of weeks ago and sure enough it turned out to be a family of SKUNKS! We went looking online for a company that humanely removes wildlife like skunks and raccoons and of course found many. The reasons I chose SWAT was a) because I loved their website, extremely informative and b) the lady I spoke with on the phone, Karla was absolutely terrific, she gave me so much information about the process of removing the animals, who would be coming, how long it could take etc all with a very friendly tone and that made me feel comfortable with going with them...they were not the first company I called either, I called three others as well. The reason that I'm writing this review is because SWAT came to my home , removed the skunks, screened our deck, they were friendly, affordable, really great with my kids who were very interested and curious about the whole thing and I would use them again in a heartbeat, no question.

Coming to do Preventative Rodent Inspection at my home

Dereck with Swat Wildlife came to my home in Ajax all the way from downtown Toronto. He was extremely nice, friendly and did an amazing job making my house 'squirrel proof' -in particular our attic which served as a makeshift home for squirrels -they were a total nuisance that we couldn't get rid of!
I recommend SWAT highly as I found them reliable (they came at the exact time they said they would which respects my time) and they made me feel very secure about not having a squirrel problem again!
I have used other services and SWAT is -by far- the most professional, honest and reliable service to date.
I rarely write reviews but because of how exceptional the service was I just had to give this company a 'shout out' :)

squirrel removal

Not bad but I wouldn't say great. To be fair I think SWAT is getting busy so this job was not done by Derrick himself but rather subcontracted out to the raccoon guys. They did a through examination and gave me some cost saving tips such as getting my own trap rather than renting. However a squirrel was actually in our attic at the time and I had to keep asking them about next steps to deal with that immediate issue as they were more concerned about fixing any entry spots. When they couldn't find any on our unit and since I still needed to get permission from the neighboors on our row, the only thing they suggested was screening in the chimmney at about $400. I was left with a squirrel in our attic and a $100 charge for them coming out. When I had another company come in, they confimed that there were cobwebs in our chimmney and that it was not likely an entry point and ended up finding an entry area that the raccoon guys had missed. If you are using SWAT in the future, check to make sure they aren't using subcontractors. Also, the company forgot to remind me that they won't go on your ajoining neighboors house (if you are in a semi or in a row) without their express permission which makes sense and is logical but it would have been a good reminder to have so I could have had time to co-ordinate. Definately not the first thing you think of when you are dealing with an intense squirrel infestation and just want them out asap...As an FYI in doing further reseach, trapping in dense urban areas is pretty useless as the squirrels from other neighboorhoods quickly move over.

Raccoon Removal

Derick came early for our appointment and was very efficient in extracting three baby raccoons and their mother out from in between floors of our home - all within a couple of hours! The cost was very reasonable for removing the unwanted raccoon family. Derick went above and beyond our expectations and we will gladly refer or call him again if needed (hopefully not :)). Derick, you will be happy to know the mother did return the same afternoon to collect her other two babies. Thank you so much!

animal control

Eric came very soon after our email query on his company's website. He looked throughly at our house and our neighbours' for entry points, then deduced that we had mice, not squirrels, so he couldn't help us (his company only does humane wildlife removal). He gave us good advice, and did not charge a cent, even though he was here for almost half an hour. And he was a very nice person to deal with. I would definitely call SWAT first the next time we suspect we have an animal problem.

Raccoon in the attic

When I got woken up in the middle of the night by noises from the attic and realized that raccoons have broken in, I was afraid that it would be a struggle to get them out for good. Not at all! I picked SWAT from a bunch of companies on the internet and I didn’t make a mistake. Derick came the same day and finished the work in two hours. He was gentle with baby raccoons that he found and we were lucky that mom got out of the attic, too, so that Derick could finish patching holes on the same visit. He also protected vents and other locations that could have been used by animals in the future. Well… I had a good night’s sleep the following night. Thanks, Derick.

Thoughtful Donation

My name is Nicole and I am from Mississauga. Whenever I travel abroad I try and help out the local animal welfare groups and humane societies that work tirelessly to prevent animal suffering in third world countries.

Once I booked my March Break trip to Belize , I emailed the Caye Caulker Humane Society to find out if there was anything they desperately needed that could easily be found in Canada. The answer I received in their response was a request I wasn’t sure if I could help out with – they wanted a humane animal trap to catch homeless and abandoned cats that were wandering the island!! UH OH! I have brought vet meds to Uganda, collars and leashes to the Cayman Islands and office supplies to Mexico but NEVER something as unique and large as an animal trap!! Where the heck to start looking?? After some brainstorming I decided to email SWAT Wildlife from the Greater Toronto Area and see if they could sell me an old, rusty trap that was collecting dust in a corner. Rather than selling me one of their cages, SWAT blew me away with their incredible DONATION of an awesome humane animal trap at no cost at all!!

The Humane Society and I are so grateful for their support and selflessness which has now been shared throughout the island of Caye Caulker. In just one weekend, the donated cage from SWAT caught 8 cats who were taken directly to the islands vet for a check up, vaccines and then spayed/neutered. This trap will now save countless lives of unwanted litters that would have been born on the streets and live a life of uncertainty. Amanda from the humane society emailed me and said "one kitten wondered in without it even baited, then we found the others nearby, must have smelt good!" (picture attached)

A HUGE thank you to Derick and the SWAT Wildlife team for making such a difference for the animals – your generosity will never be forgotten!

Sincerely,
Nicole
