Rural Home - full animal protection/removal

My family bought an old house in Uxbridge, and quickly discovered a family of raccoons living in the chimney and multiple families of birds living in soffits in different areas of the house. Louis quickly identified the source of all of the issues (and a few others we hadn't noticed, including frogs!) His work was thorough and diligent, he kept me totally updated, never tried to oversell, and was an absolute pleasure to deal with. The price was more than fair, and I couldn't be happier with the outcome.

Mama Raccoon in attic with 3 babies

Raccoon was only noticed approximately 10 days ago by my dogs. She was climbing up the siding on corner of house to second floor balcony, then up another floor to the soffit. I went to Homestars and A1 Checkmate Wildlife Removal had 10/10 rating with many reviews. I had heard no sounds or movement so was confident she hadn’t had any babies yet. I contacted Louis and was able to book an appointment in less than 24 hours. He arrived on time, checked the entry/exit and determined her location in the attic with a heat sensor. He explained his pricing and processes thoroughly and was able to complete the removal at that time. When Louis got into the attic, mama raccoon had 3 babies. Babies were removed and placed in a warning box, one roof corner was sealed, the other a one way door was affixed and waited for mama to come get her babies. She took over 12 hours to come down and took one baby. Louis came back the next morning and mom had taken one baby and may need another night to get the other two If she had trouble relocating herself. Louis explained every step and plan along the way. He even has a plan if mom raccoon can’t get back for the other two, he will transport them to a wildlife rescue. He will come and check the box again in morning.
I am so impressed, grateful and happy that Louis managed the raccoon extraction humanely and allows them to relocate themselves in familiar area. He went above and beyond, his customer service is exemplary.

Excellent bird removal and vent replacement

I would highly recommend! Very professional and thorough job and they went above and beyond what was required. Completely cleaned and sanitized the vent piping. Crawled through my attic and fixed something else that wasn't working! I am extremely pleased to have this issue resolved. They also were prompt and on time!!

Raccoon Removal

Lou was personable, calm, had a smile on his face and knew exactly what to do to retrieve the raccoon family from my house soffits. He extracted them humanely and safely. Once removed, the Mom raccoon had the ability and space to fetch her three babies individually.
The cost also included the need to add screen boxes over the five house vents on the roof - AND for a reasonable additional fee, I'll have Lou back to also install screens in my unfinished garage in the space at the top of the walls where it opens up to the soffits to prevent these animals from gaining access. Lou saw footprints on the wall ! and we saw broken vases that fell from a shelf as a result of the Momma raccoon scaling it to get up to the open soffits!!
I'm happy to refer Lou to you. He was a pleasure to work with.

Removal of mama raccoon and little one.

Mama raccoon and baby were in attic/wall and were safely removed healthy and happy. Louis was very professional and respected COVID safety rules, we were very comfortable with Louis and it was an interesting experience and I learned a bit about raccoons that I didn't know! He not only rescued the pair of them, but secured 4 spots under the soffits as well. Great service and would recommend to everyone who needs the service!!

Raccoon removal & more

Nothing but high praise for Louis. He was professional, timely, answered all our questions patiently and did an excellent job with both raccoon removal and wildlife protection of our home. To top it off he’s really easy to talk to and we’d highly recommend him to anyone looking to get rid of their “new” roommates!

Critter Management

Louis is a pro and very friendly. We were concerned about red squirrels and wasps. He did a thorough check of possible entry points, dealt with wasp Issa, and did not bill for services not needed.

Racoon removal from attic

Louis is amazing! Friendly and professional. He was quick to respond to texts/phone calls. Very fast survey of damage and quote for work needed. Showed up on time, even when it was a last minute booking. Above and beyond what was necessary to remove raccoons and repair entry hole.
