Once Raccoons gain access to your roof, a one-way door system is installed over the point of entry. It and all other entry points will be sealed to ensure Raccoons do not re-enter. Sometimes trapping is an option depending on the time of year.
Raccoons can enter our attics in several ways, some of the most common ways that raccoons gain access to our attics are through the roof vents or air vents. These caps can be breached whether plastic or metal. We build custom raccoon caps to fit all size air and roof vents for your home. Another common area is through the soffits and soffit intersections. These areas are easy places for raccoons to get their footing and push into our attics. SWAT Wildlife inspects these vulnerabilities and can provide re-enforcement to ensure raccoons cannot target these areas. Lastly, raccoons have feet that enable them to feel weak areas in the roof that otherwise look fine, SWAT Wildlife offers roof repairs to make sure that the roof remains raccoon-proof and waterproof. An inspection by an experienced technician can also help prevent this problem.
Raccoons are omnivores which means they will eat anything. This is why it is important not to feed wildlife such as Raccoons, or to leave food accessible to them as they will go through garbage, bird feeders, even domestic pet food if left outside.
Generally, raccoons will not attack humans. However, during the baby season if the mother feels threatened or you get too close to her and her babies this may provoke an attack. Also, being sick can trigger an attack for the raccoon. We recommend always calling a professional to deal with raccoons on properties.
Raccoon Removal costs can vary. Our inspection, removal and closing of one entry point range from $325-$395 in the GTA. Also, Raccoon Removal costs can increase during Baby Season and if the Raccoons are found underneath decks, sheds, crawl spaces and porches.
When keeping Raccoons away from your home, simple practices like keeping your garbage contained or keeping it to an area they cannot access can go a long way. Although there are many products that can be purchased, the best way to keep Raccoons away is to hire a professional Wildlife Removal Expert to inspect and protect the vulnerable areas around a home where Raccoons can gain entry.
Squirrels like raccoons can access roofs through the air and roof vents, installing wildlife proof metal caps is a good start. However, squirrels being rodents and having a need to chew to prevent their teeth from growing can also target ageing wood on roofs and fascia boards. SWAT Wildlife can inspect all types of roofs and offer preventive measures in weak areas to keep squirrels from entering your attic and chewing electrical and damaging insulation.
Squirrel Removal costs can vary. Our inspection, removal and closing of one entry point range from $325-$395 in the GTA. Also, Squirrel Removal costs can increase during Baby Season, which happens in the Spring and Fall. Squirrels are aggressive chewers that can target fascia boards or roof lines if left exposed. If Squirrels are not removed in a timely fashion, they can cause extensive damage to insulation and electrical wiring.
It’s always best to call a professional wildlife removal company if you suspect you have animals in your home. Professional companies licensed, insured and should offer a minimum of one year warranty.
Competitive pricing for animal removal from a reputable company can range anywhere between $300-$400. Burrowing animals like Raccoons, Skunks, Rats and Opossums can bump that price up due to linear screening.
Mice can be very tricky to deter as they can access our homes from all angles. They are incredible climbers and can fit through openings as small as a pencil eraser. We use pest control applications when getting control and treating mice. This requires a very strong commercial grade rodenticide. Some things that homeowners can do is to seal up any small cracks and openings around their home ex. gaps around A/C units and Furnace exhausts. Keeping food properly stored will also prevent attracting mice.
Mice Removal is an extermination application that involves a licensed pest control technician to inspect the home ie. living spaces and attics. Once the technician identifies the mice activity, a rodenticide treatment is carried out.
There are many ways to remove Rats. The most effective way is to find the entry points they are using to enter, install a door to allow them to exit but not return, and then seal all other points of entry. However, snap trapping and poisoning (rodenticide) is another way to control Rat populations.
