If you have a problem with wildlife in your Burlington home, your best option is to hire a company that specializes in Canada wildlife removal only. This is a specialty business, and regular pest control companies do not use the proper techniques to solve animal problems. I have spent many years reviewing Canada and Burlington, and I recommend the following:
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Ontario County Animal Services: 905-335-3030
Home Free Pest Removal specializes primarily in removing animals from attics of homes and buildings - this includes squirrels in attics, raccoons, and rats or mice in homes. Canada also has a documented problem with
bats in buildings, and Home Free Pest Removal is specially trained in bat removal. They also perform general wildlife trapping services, such as the capture and removal of skunks or opossums on the
property. Call 289-860-0453 to discuss your critter problem and schedule a same-day or next-day appointment. Click here to learn more about what prices we charge in 2020.
When hiring a company to solve your wild animal problem, you want these features:
Home Free Pest Removal is a full-service Burlington wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Burlington pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all
similar to wildlife removal. Home Free Pest Removal performs a full inspection of the home or property, and determines why the animal(s) are there, and if inside a building, how the animals got inside. All
animals (including rodents) are trapped and removed, or if possible, removed from the building using special exclusion devices. Once the animals are gone, preventative repairs are essential, and
cleanup is sometimes recommended.
Burlington wildlife trapping - it's not as simple as it may seem. It's illegal in Canada to trap without a license. Trap type is very important and there are many different types, bait is somewhat relevant, trap placement is vital, and there are dozens of small things that are very important to know. Safety is a concern. Then once the animal is trapped, it must be removed and dealt with in the proper manner according to Canada law. We offer Burlington raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
Animals in attics - this is our specialty at Home Free Pest Removal. Many types of animals like to live in attics. This includes squirrels, raccoons, rats, mice, bats, birds, and even possums. Critters like to go into attics for a safe place to live and raise their young. Removing animals from attics is very complex work, partly because of the presence of baby animals. If you need Burlington squirrel removal, we can remove all the squirrels from your attic, and seal out any future ones. Read more about how to get rid of squirrels.
Rodent control must be done in a very specific way. First off, the most important thing is that all the openings that rats and mice can use to enter a house be sealed. Then all the rodents must be physically trapped and removed. Never, ever use poison! Most Burlington exterminators will just use this lazy poison technique to kill rodents, and it causes more harm than good - dead stinky rats, and it doesn't solve the problem. Call us for correct Burlington rat removal. Read more about how to get rid of rats.
Bat removal is a highly specialized task. Canada is known to have colonizing bats who often live in buildings. Bats love attics. If not removed, the colony can grow to a very large size over the years. The bat droppings are often corrosive and cause health risks. The same goes for bird droppings on or in buildings. We perform Burlington pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Burlington bat removal. We remove 100% of the bat colony and seal the building so that it's totally bat-proof. Read more about how to get rid of bats.
If you have animals inside a house, no job is complete without proper exclusion repairs. If you simply hire a Burlington trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Burlington wildlife control company that identifies 100% of the animal entry points into your building, and seals them shut with professional repairs. In addition, in many cases animals have left waste or contamination behind, and you'll want a company that can provide professional cleaning services. Home Free Pest Removal does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by Home Free Pest Removal. We also trap and remove animals that destroy lawns, such as moles, or digging animals. Sometimes animals like opossums will live under buildings, steal pet food, raid garbage cans, etc. Read about how to get rid of opossums. Skunks commonly live under sheds or decks, and set up a den. We can trap and remove them without them spraying. Read about how to get rid of skunks. Home Free Pest Removal also provides dead animal removal in Burlington. If you need help with any other wildlife conflict, from a fox, beaver, groundhog, or any other critter, we can solve it. We also do Burlington snake removal - most of the snakes in Canada are not venomous, but call us if you want safe removal, or read about how to get rid of snakes in Burlington. And remember, we are a private business, not Ontario County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at 905-335-3030. Ontario County animal services does not handle any wildlife issues.
Every wildlife removal situation is different, from the species of animals involved, the location of the animal inside a house or outside, the extent of repairs or cleanup, etc. It's impossible to give one-size-fits-all prices. Examples MIGHT include:
Small Job: For example, a one-stop job to remove an animal in the yard: $100 on up
Medium Job: For example, getting critters out of your house with minor repairs: $300 on up
Large Job: For example, a project involving many service trips and complex work: $500 on up
Give us a phone call now and tell us about your wildlife issue and we will be able to give you a price estimate over the phone. If you're cool with it, we can schedule a same-day or next-day appointment if you like. Our prices are fair, and a good value because we do the job right, the first time.
Burlington Wildlife Tip #1:
How to get rid of raccoons in the attic
As known, raccoons can be found in numerous places in urban areas. They tend to be everywhere and live with us near our homes. But once they find a house they tend to stick to it forever, and this may be a huge issue for owners. This is because raccoons can be extremely dangerous at times and not worry about who they hurt. They can simply attack in a second without having any issues at all, which worries people since they do not want to get hurt from these animals. The worse part of having a raccoon in your home is having it in your attic, keep in mind this is not a garden area which can be easy to catch raccoons. But it is in your attic where it is probably small and barely visited. At times you tend to wonder how it even got inside. Therefore it is best to get rid of raccoons when you have a chance to avoid any future issues that you can face because of them. Here are a few steps to take in order to get rid of a raccoon in your attic.
