What are the Major Wildlife Removal Concerns in Edmonton, CA?
Edmonton, Canada, is home to hundreds of animal species along with its nearly one million human residents. Thanks to its beautiful wooded landscape, city residents occasionally experience issues with anything from raccoons to rats moving into their homes. Wildlife removal in Edmonton is a humane and fast way to deal with any squirrels, beavers, skunks, and more that might damage your home.
Raccoons are problematic in that they are intelligent and dexterous, and able to adapt quickly to a more urban environment. Able climbers, they’ve been forced into breaking into people’s attics to scavenge for food and shelter.
Raccoons can cause thousands of dollars in damage, from soiled insulation and piles of fecal matter to broken ducts and chewed wires. In addition, health risks from raccoons include roundworms and zoonotic diseases that can pass from them to humans.
An inspection will reveal the severity of the infestation, including whether there are babies present. Signs of raccoons include finding a largish opening into your attic, footprints, and piles of scat.
Raccoon Trapping and Removal
Live trapping is an effective method for raccoon control. We use traps secure enough to withstand a raccoon’s intelligence and large enough to comfortably fit it. If we find young, we’ll hand capture them and reunite them with their mother. If that is not possible, we work with local wildlife rehabilitators. Eviction fluid will work if juveniles are present.
Exclusion and Repair
Once raccoons are removed, it is essential that their entryways are sealed. We apply sanitization agents and ectoparasite treatments to clean the area and exterminate any fleas, ticks, and lice. If insulation is destroyed, we can restore it.
Squirrels can move all over a home since they’re smaller mammals, just like rats and mice. We do a full inspection before every squirrel removal to ensure there aren’t any animals lingering in hard-to-reach areas. This also helps guide our clean-up and repair work too.
The next step in squirrel removal is setting up traps. Squirrels need more traps than most wildlife removal jobs because they tend to gnaw out multiple entrances and exits.
Squirrels can damage everything from wiring to insulation. We’ll wrap each squirrel removal with exclusion services to keep wildlife out.
Squirrels are abundant in Edmonton and can easily enter the home from nearby trees seeking shelter in cold weather. Once they’re in the attic, you’ll likely hear their squeaking and rustling noises from the walls as well.
Homeowners may find bats in their Edmonton homes almost any time of the year. Bats can fly in when they’re active in the summer or nest in the walls in the winter to stay warm during the cold winters.
Thanks to their flight, bats can hide almost anywhere in your home. Only the professionals can find all of them and where they’re entering the structure, solving the problem for good after bat removal.
Bats shouldn’t be handled by homeowners both for their sake andto prevent rabies transmission. One-way bat valves let them exit on their own and keep them from returning. We only install them after the pups in the colony are ready to leave to ensure none are left behind.
We don’t just repair the damage after helping you get rid of bats; we also work on exclusion to prevent future wildlife issues.
If you suspect there’s a possum of some kind in your home, we’ll inspect to determine exactly what sort of wildlife removal is needed. Inspections are essential to determine the trapping and exclusion methods needed, not to mention to guide the repairs.
Trapping opossums isn’t easy because they’ll often refuse to leave their hiding spot if they suspect danger. We have the techniques to get them out of your home so you can get rid of opossums once and for all.
Don’t let other animals move in after completing the wildlife removal in your home. Exclusion and repair are essential to closing off any inviting openings into the house.
Opossums are not widespread across Canada yet, but they have been sighted in areas like British Columbia and Ontario. They have just as much potential to cause damage as a raccoon or skunk due to their nesting habits.
Skunks are common around the Edmonton area, with some homeowners having to remove multiple animals per year from under decks and porches. These creatures are most common a hassle in the summer and fall when they’re raising young, but you may need skunk removal any time of year.
Most calls to get rid of skunks involve families nesting outside under a deck or shed. These outdoor dens are still a nuisance since skunks can spray or bite pets and humans. If a skunk does get inside a structure, it can do a lot of damage with its powerful digging and gnawing abilities.
Skunk removal is a delicate process. We have the equipment to ensure there are no spray or odor issues during trapping.
Don’t settle for multiple wildlife removal calls per year. Let us install exclusion methods to keep skunks and other wildlife away for good.
Determine the repairs needed and what type of rodents you’re dealing with by booking an inspection. We use inspections to build our wildlife removal game plan.
Getting every last rat or mouse out of the walls, attic, and crawlspace can take time. Once we’ve removed them all, we focus on clean up.
Sanitizing the spaces where rats and mice lived is key to controlling the disease risk of Hantavirus and more.
Rodent Pest Control
Rats and mice account for a large percentage of total wildlife removal calls in Edmonton. They’re prone to seek nesting space in any structure, from a home to a backyard shed.
Gopher and Groundhog Removal
Gophers and groundhogs are two burrowing creatures that are well-known for causing damage in Edmonton. While they’re relatively harmless, their digging habits can damage your lawn, garden, and even the foundation of your home.
Are you dealing with gophers, groundhogs, or another type of rodent problem? An inspection from us will determine exactly what wildlife removal you need.
Thanks to their tendency to dig deep and winding underground burrows, it can be tricky to find and remove all of the gophers or groundhogs. We combine trapping and exclusion methods to encourage them to leave with the most humane methods.
After repairing the burrowing or gnawing damage done by the animals, exclusion is recommended. Everything from landscape changes to the installation of wire mesh can help keep gophers and groundhogs from returning.
