Racoons in attic

Within 1 day of calling Nick came by. He was very knowledgeable and quickly evaluated our roof and installed a 1 way door. By the third day the racoon left and Nick came by again to take out the door. It was very quick and painless. We were very satisfied with this service.

Wildlife Removal

I want to acknowledge the integrity and professionalism of Gates'. They came to our home less than 24 hours after being called, thoroughly inspected our property (interior and exterior) and let us know that we did not have a wildlife issue. Their assessment was free and they even provided recommendations to help us better manage our space in terms of eliminating possible future wildlife issues. Thanks for your thoroughness and honesty!

Hello, thank you so much for commenting on our integrity and professionalism, it means the world to me! As in your case, it is not uncommon that we get called out for a perceived wildlife issue and find that the animals have not yet entered the attic. Hopefully you will not have a future issue but if you do you can count on us!

Squirrel in my wall

When I noticed a strange scratching sound coming from behind the wall in my closet, I suspected a squirrel. I went to the Toronto Wildlife Rescue website to see if I could find a recommendation for a company that used HUMANE methods for dealing with wildlife in the house issues. The company they recommended was Gates Wildlife Control. The service was incredibly prompt. They returned my call 5 minutes after I made it, and David was at my front door 30 minutes later. He was very professional, polite and knowledgeable. He rapidly determined where the squirrel had gained entry (through my neighbors' attached roof). He spoke with my neighbors to explain the situation, get permission to go up on their roof, and see if they would be willing to cover half of the cost. He installed a one way door over the hole, and came back to check on it a few days later. When there was no sign of the squirrel trying to get back in (which she would have done if there had been any babies), he sealed the hole. Mission accomplished, fast, easy, and humane.

Hi Katie, thank you so much for your comprehensive review and for your kind words for David. I love how you summed up your experience in six words. "Mission accomplished, fast, easy, and humane." I am also glad that you did your homework to find "a company that used HUMANE methods". So many people hire the first company they find on the internet and end up being disappointed. Your review made my week! Brad Gates, B.Sc., Owner / President, HomeStars Best of Award Winner for 7 years in a row (2021, 2020, 2019, 2018, 2017, 2016, 2015).

Squirrels

Kieran has done an amazing job – he is thorough, stands behind the quality of his work and has gone above and beyond to ensure that the squirrels stay out of my roof. Despite having to return multiple times as the squirrels have gotten creative – Kieran and his team make sure the job is done properly and fully, without question. I hope to not need his services in the future for other pests but if I ever do, will be sure to call him!

Removal of racoon and repair and preventative work on our roof.

We were entirely satisfied with this company for taking care of our problem of having a racoon in our attic. Everyone was extremely knowledgable and did an amazing job from the first phone call to the end result of having the racoon out and repairs done on the roof . I would highly recommend this company.

I had a squirrel climb down my chimney

I had a squirrel climb down my chimney and get trapped in the fireplace with no possible exit besides letting it loose into my home. I looked at a few places online and try to make contact but no callbacks, AAA answer the phone right away and advise that they could have a technician the next day at 9:00 a.m. and told me the price upfront (a bit pricey).

The price I ended up paying was what I was told on the phone, which is refreshing, to say the least. The representative on the phone was extremely helpful and professional, and the technician who arrived the next day was also extremely professional and very helpful. The whole process took less than 1 hour! I would definitely recommend this company to anyone.

Squirrels be gone

I called and received a call back right away. The team was there the next day even during a pandemic, and not such wonderful weather. They were up on the roof and in no time at all, the traps were set and within just a few days the squirrels that wanted to make my house their new home as well, were gone. I was so very very happy with both the outcome and the service. Thank you AAA Gates Wildlife control.

Awesome job Nick!

AAA Gates Wildlife Control is very responsive. Nick is very nice and professional. He spotted the two places where the squirrel managed to squeeze into the attic of our house immediately and also recommended a few spots that may be of potential risk of invasion. Immediate action was taken to block the holes and stop any further entry of squirrels around the house. 3 weeks have gone by since AAA Gates wildlife control helped us solve this situation and we haven't seen or been disturbed by the loud noise of the squirrels anymore. A big thank you to AAA Gate and Nick!
