Wildlife chimney removal

AAAGates Wildlife Removal is an exceptional company. They were very responsive noting the fact that a live squirrel was stuck in our fireplace chimney. Jake, the technician was outstanding, professional, knowledgeable and very personable! He was respectful of our home and certainly cares for wildlife, it was a pleasure having him in our home. I cant say enough about this company, I highly recommend AAAGates , they are simply the best!

Wildlife Control - Removing a raccoon family from house!

We had a raccoon family - mom & 4 babies, in the bottom of an old furnace chimney. Joel from Gates came & inspected not only where the family was, but all around our roof to identify places they might get in again when removed from the chimney. Then they very carefully removed the babies & set them outside so the mom could be reunited & remove her family to a safer spot. Afterwards, Joel sealed up the chimney, repaired 2 other holes in the roof, and repaired the bottom of the chimney where they removed the babies. Great job!

Polite, Humane and Know their stuff

Last year they dealt with the squirrel problem, and this year they fixed the raccoon issue. Hopefully no more critters find ways to get in to the attic!

Easy, Professional, and Satisfied

I initially called Gates Wildlife due to hearing scratching noises coming from our roof/attic. Upon arrival, Brad and Cassandra got to work and identified that it was actually a bird that had made it into our attic. They removed the bird promptly and ensured that there weren't any signs of other animals.

Scheduling was easy, there was a confirmation call and email a couple of days before, and the crew showed up right on time.

Once the service call was done, payment was easy (via credit card) and I received an invoice and payment confirmation within a few minutes.

It was my first time using Gates Wildlife and would definitely use them again. Thank you!

Prompt and Efficient Problem-solvers

Squirrels made themselves at home in my attic after ice buildup had damaged my soffit. After reading reviews of Gates and their major competitor I chose Gates and cannot say enough about their service. They came within a couple of days of my email and inspected the attic as well as all possible roof entry points and screened several places. Two weeks later the persistent critters found a new spot to enter and Gates came the next day (no charge) again. Fantastic friendly efficient!!!

squirrel Issues

Always a pleasure dealing with Gates Wildlife animal control. Customer service is outstanding. Arrive on time, take complete control of the situation which can be very daunting for people downtown where animal infestations are rampant.
This was a big job as we had multiple entry points. Thank you David for assessing the issue, providing a quote and completing the work immediately. Incredibly efficient and such a pleasure to deal with.
They also followup to ensure the issue has been resolved.
Fantastic service and would highly recommend them for any similar issues.

Always a satisfied customer

I have used Gates Wildlife Control for over 12 years now, from raccoon removal, squirrel removal, mice removal to bird removal services and repairs to the home to prevent repeat visitors. We have always been completely satisfied and they stand behind their workmanship. I would definitely recommend Gates Wildlife Control to anyone in need of any animal control services. I was so happy with their last visit that I treated them to lunch.

AWESOME JOB GUYS!!!

starlings

grate belonging to kitchen vent had fallen off, leaving lovely round space, and birds quite quick to spot a potential dry nesting place ... too early, as yet, however, family in process of moving in, along with all their twigs and branches ... wonderful racket throughout as the starlings seemed to be throwing a nest-warming party ... Joel and Patrick (arrived early) , and cleaning out the space ... installed new grill & grate, and is looks quite bird-proof, so it does .... sound & prompt work, and very pleased ...

Hi Eamo, thank you so much for taking the time to write such a great review about my company and about Joel and Patrick's work. The screen box that was installed has a 10 year guarantee and will keep both birds and squirrels out of your vent. Thanks again.

humane removal of racoons in the roof

I heard racoons in the ceiling and called Gates. They booked an appointment and removed the racoons within 72 hours of my initial call (on a weekend). They were professional, courteous and prompt. I highly recommend!
