Professional Wildlife Removal Company Servicing Ottawa, Canada

Ottawa Wildlife Animal Control

If you are having a problem with wildlife in your Ottawa 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 Ottawa, and I recommend the following:

Heritage Wildlife Management
Cell Phone: 343-688-0795

NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Ontario County Animal Services: 1-888-ONT-SPCA



Heritage Wildlife Management 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 Heritage Wildlife Management 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 343-688-0795 to discuss your critter problem and schedule a same-day or next-day appointment.

When hiring a company to solve your wild animal problem, you want these features:
    - Specializes in wildlife removal, not pest control
    - Fully Canada and Ontario County licensed and insured
    - Works 7 days per week (critters don't take weekends off)
    - Performs full building inspections: enters and inspects attic
    - Performs exclusion repairs, with guarantee against animal re-entry
    - Offers cleanup of biohazardous wildlife waste


Heritage Wildlife Management is a full-service Ottawa wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Ottawa pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all similar to wildlife removal. Heritage Wildlife Management 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.

  Ottawa 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 Ottawa raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
  Animals in attics - this is our specialty at Heritage Wildlife Management. 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 Ottawa 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 Ottawa 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 Ottawa 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 Ottawa pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Ottawa 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 Ottawa trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Ottawa 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. Heritage Wildlife Management does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by Heritage Wildlife Management. 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. Heritage Wildlife Management also provides dead animal removal in Ottawa. 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 Ottawa 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 Ottawa. 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 1-888-ONT-SPCA. Ontario County animal services does not handle any wildlife issues.

Ottawa Wildlife Tip #1:
What do you do with a squirrel you trapped - Choosing the experts over doing it yourself? - Have you found a squirrel living in your home or yard? If you have then you have two main choices - you can either choose to catch this creature yourself and release or exterminate it, or you can call upon the assistance of a professional to give you a hand. Of course, there will be both pros and cons for both, and these are things that you are going to need to figure out before you make your final decision. Starting with "going it alone", you will find that once you have done the job properly by buying the right traps, getting the right bait and figuring out what to do with the animal once you have caught it, you could actually save money. However, in order to get all of the little parts of catching the animal right, you are going to need to do your research which can take a lot of time. If you don't get it right first time, or get carried away with the "toys" sold on the market designed to remove or repel the creatures, you will find that in the long run, it could actually cost you more.

Ottawa Wildlife Tip #2:
How many teeth does an opossum have? It makes sense to know what you are dealing with when it comes to wild animals in your yard or in your home, and this is very much so the case with animals such as the opossum - wild, unpredictable, and hungry! These critters look strange and act even stranger, especially with their "play dead" nature. Of course, when handling these creatures, you need to have a certain amount of knowledge, not only to protect yourself, but also to protect the animal as well. The opossum actually has more teeth than any other mammals out there - 50 of the pointy things to be more precise. It is when the opossum is threatened that you will see these glaring at you in full force, but for the most part, they don't normally bite, and would rather run away or play dead than sink their fangs into your skin. Essentially, the teeth baring behavior is more of a display of "I can hurt you!" and it is often noted that when the animal is in this position, you can pretty much shove anything in its mouth and not have to worry because it normally will not clamp down. If you take a few moments to have a browse on the internet, you will soon see what is to be feared with this creature - any open mouth shot of the opossum shows you a pretty epic set of pearly whites, (or not) and their killer-looking fangs almost look like something out of a horror story. Of course, as we have already mentioned, the opossum is somewhat unpredictable, so the teeth-baring isn't something that should be tested, and we certainly would not suggest you put your hands in this little guy's mouth, should you ever come across one.
