Removal of squirrels from the eves/soffit

We called Gotcha Wildlife Removal Services as they stood out amongst all the rest. From the get go Kenneth was quick to respond and book an appointment for the removal of the squirrels. He was very thorough and explained the whole process from start to finish, and he even found some damage caused by the squirrels chewing on the wood which he fixed for us. Finally no more sleepless nights.
Thank you Kenneth for all you did for us you are highly recommended.

Raccoon Removal/Exclusion

It has been a month since Gotcha Wildlife came to my house. I had called them regarding a suspected raccoon in the attic, where wed been hearing thumping footsteps and scratching noises, usually between 3 - 6 am. The reason I chose this company amongst the 5 other companies Id called is because right from the first phone call, Ken was responsive, professional, and quick. And, his company was the only one that mentioned they would use a thermal camera to scan the ceiling of my 2nd floor rooms to see if they would be able to detect any heat patches from animals that might be present in the attic.

On the day of the service, Frankie and Phoenix were quickly able to locate a hole in my roof (right by the plumbing vent) where the animal had entered. In the photo they showed me, raccoon hairs could even been seen around the hole. After scanning my 2nd floor ceiling with the thermal camera (no heat patches could be found), Frankie went up to my attic. The animal was not present at the time, nor could any babies be detected. We had been hearing noises since late March (service was done late April), and it was prime birthing season, so we had all been expecting to find a mother and her babies -but none could be found. This lead Frankie to believe that it had been a male raccoon who had visited my house.

A 1-way door was installed at the roof hole. We also paid to have all our vents and intersections covered by heavy-duty wire mesh. One week after the 1-way door had been installed, Frankie and Phoenix came again to remove the door and patch up the hole. There is a 3-year guarantee on their work. All of it was done rapidly and effectively. I appreciated the photos they were able to provide. There have not been any loud noises in the attic since Gotcha Wildlifes first visit.

We are extremely satisfied with the work, but also the customer service. Frankie and Phoenix are polite, professional, and patient. Even though I asked countless questions, they answered them all with courtesy and understanding. If I ever have any animal-related issues again on my property, I would call them without hesitation. This company pays attention to how they treat customers, and they get the work done so that you can sleep in peace again.

Removal of Raccoons from the attic was humane and very efficiently. Frankie and Phoenix were amazing. They were professional, caring and very accommodating. Will have them back to secure our home before any issues arise in the future.

The raccoons were removed humanely and quickly. The entry point was secured and information was given in order for us to secure our home from future entry. Frankie and Phoenix were amazing. They were professional and extremely sensitive to my anxiety. I would recommend them to anyone who needs this service. I am grateful to have had this team to help us. They deserve a 10 out of 10. Thank you Frankie and Phoenix.

Removal of bird nest from Kitchen exhaust

Recently we heard sounds of birds from our kitchen exhaust outlet. Wanted to have the nest which the birds had just started on removed by a professional company and protect the exhaust outlet on the exterior wall from further ingress by birds. Frankie & Phoenix promptly came over the next morning and completed the ask in about 45 mins. Thankfully the birds had only just begun making their nest. We had 4 exhaust outlets covered with exterior bird cages, preventing forced entry by birds for nesting. We were impressed with Gotcha Wildlife's prompt & effective service. We have been given a 3 year warranty on the protection installed. Anyone looking for a professional company to help them out with protection against wild life should definitely give Gotcha Wildlife a call.

Chimney and pest removal

Two chimneys needed capping to keep birds and wildlife out. While doing this there was also a hornet's nest that needed removal.
These guys came out the day I called and got it all finished.
Same-day service was great.

Removal of Squirrel from Chimney

We contacted Gotcha Wildlife on Sunday as we believed that we had a live squirrel in our chimney. They called us back within an hour or so and discussed what the approach would be to humanely remove it. They also discussed pricing and options that could take place once they arrived and assessed the situation. (including how they could remove a nest if there was one)

They arrived on Monday at 10:30 am in the specified window (between 10 and 12 pm). They were able to remove the squirrel who sadly did not survive. (not their fault)

The team of Frankie, Phoenix and Ken were very professional, respective and exhibited clear communications. They repaired the issue with the chimney that allowed the squirrel ingress. They performed this in a prompt fashion and left after tidying up after their work.

I would highly recommend this company as they fit a great niche where you can humanely remove unwanted critters from your home!!! Great service, costs were inline to what we expected and very professional. I would definitely hire them again.

Noise in the attic or roof

I was hearing many different noises and was not sure if they were coming from the roof or attic. I had squirrels about three years ago in the attic, and thought they had gotten in again from another opening. So called Gotcha and spoke to Ken, and he sent out two men the next day, and happy to get such a quick service. They did not find anything, but mice droppings, and they put poison in the attic and it would take two to three weeks to get results. I called them back in two weeks as I was still hearing a lot of noise, and they returned, checked everything, could not find out where the noise was coming from. Frankie and Phoenix were very friendly and professional, really nice to listen to my concerns. They set more mice poison, and it has been three days since and still hearing noise and hoping the next few weeks things will be better.

Massive balls

We had a racoon enter a gazebo (tented) and was looking to make its home there. Frankie and Phoenix showed up and just opened the gazebo door, no hesitation and flushed the racoon out. No more racoon problems. Highly recommend.
