Thanks Pete, for your outstanding service and advice.

We like wildlife and our backyard visitors include raccoons. Recently a neighbour noticed them on our roof, so we called Gates to look into it. We chose Gates because of their reviews/stories, and because they call themselves the "Animal's choice" (which was important to us). Pete easily surpassed "ALL" our expectations. He arrived on time, and we found him courteous, knowledgeable, honest and competent. Thankfully we didn't need any removal. But he checked and animal-proofed our roof, and also checked our "old" deck to advise us on the options and the best course of action. Very highly recommended!

Thanks Peter!

Technician Peter was a pleasure to deal with, efficient & professional. Took the time to fully explain the situation then did a thorough and complete job of removing a sparrow's nest without disturbing the fledglings. Would highly recommend AAA Gates Wildlife

Wildlife Removal

There is nothing worse than hearing something scurrying about inside your living room wall. After listening to my story and conducting a thorough on site inspection, all done to pandemic protocol, Brad and Cassandra of Gates Wildlife Animal Control Scarborough, explained options to me and gave me an estimate of costs.
As I watched them work it was evident that Brad and Cassandra were an experienced team who were knowledgeable in animal proofing areas of concern and also skilled in the humane removal of pesky critters which for me turned out to be an entire family of red squirrels.
Rest assured Gates Wildlife Control know what they are doing and provide an honest, reliable, trustworthy service to obtain quick results. Call them. I'm glad I did!

Knowledgeable and easy to work with

The urban wildlife (raccoons) have been doing damage to our roof, window screens, eavestroughing downspouts. Gates representative Jake was able to assess how they were accessing our second and third floor and offer suggestions on how to deter them climbing. He also suggested screening possible common points of entry: roof vents and bathroom exhaust pipes. He was able to do the installation of the screens right away.

Very professional, knowledgeable, and resourceful.

Hi Judith, it sounds like the raccoons were using your house as their jungle gym. It was a wise decision to animal proof your home based on how much raccoon activity was on and around your home. Thank you for your review and for complimenting Jake on a job well done.

AAA Gates removed a mamma raccoon and baby from my attic. I live next to a ravine with plenty of wildlife so while they were here I had them "wildlife proof" my home by blocking all of the usual access points. Money well spent. So glad they make every effort to reunite babies with mother. Nick took care of business. Great attitude, and clearly knew what he was doing. Highly recommended!

Hi Seb, it makes perfect sense to wildlife proof your home. Animals are mini home inspectors that are constantly exploring homes for the easiest way in. Thank you for your excellent review and for your compliments for Nick.

Raccoons in the attic

Nick is our hero! His love for wildlife is very evident! Nick worked hard at helping a mother raccoon relocate her two little kits. Our home is safe and secure. Now we have peace of mind that these raccoons were treated humanely and with dignity! Thanks Nick!

Looked After Raccoon Problem

We had a mother raccoon giving birth to four babies behind our fireplace brick beginning of March of this year. We called Gates Wildlife Control and Blake came out to help us. He looked behind our fireplace flue with a mirror and saw the little family and told us
that it could be June before they would leave. Each week he came by and inspected their den and gave us suggestions. I would
follow through with what he suggested each
week. By the beginning of May the raccoon
babies were very active and exercising. Then
one night they went up our chimney onto our
roof and were gone. The next day Blake
came by and put grates over our chimney
and seven vents. We are now fully protected
and feel relieved.

Blake was very patient with us and kind. We would highly recommend their company for anyone requiring this type of service.

Hi Jeff, thank you for explaining how your job unfolded. In most cases we can easily remove the raccoon family from the bottom of the fire place. On occasion we run across situations like yours where we cannot access the babies, to remove them, so we need to let the mother raise them until they can climb up the chimney on their own. I also appreciate your kind words for Blake, it means a lot. Brad Gates, B.Sc., Owner / President, HomeStars Best of Award Winner for 7 years in a row (2021, 2020, 2019, 2018, 2017, 2016, 2015).

Outstanding Customer Service

We heard noises in our attic - due to personal circumstances we needed it looked at right away. We called Gates Wildlife Control - were immediately helped and had someone out within a few hours - amazing ! Nick did a thorough outside inspection, he was very knowledgeable and just a really nice guy. Unfortunately, he felt it might be mice which they do not remove. He then gave us suggestions to remedy the problem. All this at no charge - very impressive. We would not hesitate to call/recommend Gates Wildlife Control in the future.

Hello, on occasion our customers mistake the sounds of mice for those of a much larger animal. It can be difficult to distinguish what type of animal is causing the noise and an inspection from a professional can get to the bottom of it. Thank you for your review and for complimenting Nick for his professionalism.

pest removal

we had heard some noises in the attic and were worried it was either a racoon from the park or squirrels deciding to use the attic as their home. When Joel arrived he immediately checked the roof for an entry point and he found the squirrel had chewed through the roof vent. He then went into the attic and found the nest of three tiny squirrels, Mom must have been out. He safely removed them, replaced the vent and put guards on all 7 vents. He then left the babies attached to the vent so Mom could retrieve them. Joel came back the next day and Mom had indeed picked up her brood. An excellent result all round.

Hi Charles, thank you so much for explaining how Joel was able to humanely remove and reunite your family of squirrels on the outside. Animals entering roof vents is the number one way they get in, good idea to have them all screened.
