Service

After being recommended by my Sister who was most satisfied with Gates work on her home, I referred my Mother-in-Law to Gates, so I am responding on her behalf as we are using my Email account. She had a compromised roof vent (totally damaged), obviously by a racoon. We contacted Gates, and they responded, with a home inspection within 24 hours(less actually). Peter evaluated the situation, and submitted a very fair cost to perform the work, which also included covering all of the other roof vents with screens. While he was there he addressed the immediate issue with the compromised vent installing a one way entry for the racoon to get out, but not back in. He returned 2 days later to complete the work. Peter was very polite, knowledgeable, and professional. We would highly recommend Gates, and needless to say Gates reputation speaks for itself. Great Job Gates, thank you so much. My Mother-in-Law is again a happy camper.

Squirrels in the house

We had to call the company because a mother squirrel had made a nest in our chimney. Kieran explained the procedure and came back several times to allow the babies to grow and get out by themselves. Now the entries are closed, our house is critter-proof and the squirrel family is enjoying the outdoors. We absolutely recommend Gates Wildlife for their service and efficiency.

Red Squirrel Infestation

I saw a baby squirrel in our home which I couldn't remove.
I was given a date and exact time that Blake would come.
The problem was solved and Blake came back on two separate occasions
to make sure the the red squirrels were gone, which they were.

Excellent company prompt and dependable

Squirrels Attempting to Break-In

I heard squirrels making noise on my roof. They were either in or attempting to get in. I phoned Gates Wildlife Control on Monday at 3:00 PM. Blake showed up Tuesday @ 8:00 AM. He checked the roof. Squirrels were attempting to get in through a hole that had been previously patched (not very well). Blake removed the old patch job and fixed it properly and was done before 9:00 AM. Great service and fair price.

Animal control fence around base of solarium

I had an animal burrowing under my solarium, possibly a skunk. I phoned Gates Wildlife Control and Chris came to give me some needed advice.He installed a wire mesh or narrow fence around the base and did an excellent job. I was very satisfied with the result. It will be very effective in keeping any critters out! I'm very glad I phoned Gates

Hi Dave, skunks are amazing diggers and the only effective defence in keeping them out is to install permanent screening around the structure in question. It makes me happy to hear that you were "very satisfied with the result". Thanks for the great review!

Highly Professionally and Experienced

I had a raccoon problem and tried everything I could based on info that I found on the internet. My raccoon problem continued. I then saw that The Toronto Wildlife Centre website recommended AAA Gates Wildlife Control. I have admired and supported the work done by the Toronto Wildlife Centre for years, so I respected their recommendation and called Gates Wildlife. I am SO GLAD that I did. They returned my call promptly and professionally. They arranged an appointment for me within a few days with one of their technicians (Blake). They even called to offer me a sooner appointment when they had a cancellation. They were clear on what services they can provide, any fees involved and they can even provide a free on-site assessment. Blake was on time, very professional and VERY HELPFUL. He took his time to explain things to me and reassure me regarding my raccoon concerns. I know that I will call Gates Wildlife if I have any future wildlife issues for professional and humane management. Thank you!

Raccoon removal from attic.

We had a raccoon that damaged the fascia board and got into our attic. Joel from Gates did a terrific job of replacing the damaged board while leaving an opening for the raccoon to exit through the temporary one-way door that he installed. Joel was extremely knowledgeable and interesting to talk with. Another Gates representative returned a few days later and removed the one-way door and installed wire mesh over the opening. The costs were exactly as quoted and we were very pleased with this company.

Unwanted House Guests

I had originally contacted a competitor and their earliest appointment was 4 days from contact, they then gave me a high cost quote. Gates was there the next day, did the prevention, came back 2 days later and finished. Very Thorough!
