If you have a problem with wildlife in your St. Catharines 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 St. Catharines, and I recommend the following:
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Ontario County Animal Services: 905-682-0767
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 St. Catharines wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular St. Catharines 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.
St. Catharines 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 St. Catharines 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 St. Catharines 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 St. Catharines 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 St. Catharines 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 St. Catharines pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is St. Catharines 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 St. Catharines trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a St. Catharines 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 St. Catharines. 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 St. Catharines 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 St. Catharines. 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 905-682-0767. 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.
St. Catharines Wildlife Tip #1:
What to do with a dead pet dog
When you bring a pet home, the environment becomes quite exciting and you take pleasure in each and every activity associated with the pet. But, when this pet who becomes an important member of your family leaves for the heavenly adobe. The grief becomes unbearable, just like a loss of a human member of the family. However, in between the grief, you have another thing to handle and that is the cremation of the dog. Many pet owners remain unaware of how to handle the deceased pet dog and where to dispose its body.
Ask for help
The pain of losing someone dear is intense, so ask your friends or family to come over and provide you emotional support. Since the dead body of a pet starts off decomposing right away, its cremation needs to be handled at the earliest. If thesituation doesn't permit so, then you can get in touch with the local pet cremation handling company who will help you out with storing of the body. Else one can even get the body buried in their own garden. If your society doesn't allow you to bury it in your place you can ask help from your friends to bury it in their premises.
There are many professional centersthat take care of pet cremation, if you intend to get your pet cremated through these companies then you can search for them and get in touch with them. Moreover, you can also contact your local sanitation department that can easily take the body and put it in a landfill. The people dealing with animal services can also be of help, but you need to transport the body to their place for cremation. Every state holds laws regarding the cremation of dead animals, so before undertaking any action for disposing of, seek information regarding the laws applicable.
Methods followed for cremation
In order to dispose of the dead body of pets, the most efficient and widely used methodology includes burying the body. The body is also thrown in some landfill materials to allow it to decompose. Moreover, in some cases, the bodies of the pet are even burnt for cremation.
Tips to handle the deceased body
1) The dead pet attracts lots of bacteria and insects andreleases fluids. This can be infectious, so if you need to touch the body wears gloves and if possible clean the fluid to avoid the spread of infection.
2) Put the deceased body in a thick cloth or a blanket that can wrap the full body of the pet. Afterwrapping, put the body in a heavy-duty plastic bag for easy carrying.
3) If the body would be transported to a far off place for cremation, tag your pet's name along with your name on a label.
4) Since the decomposition of a pet body starts off early, place the dead dog in the freezer, because if it stays outside even for four to five hours, the whole house will be filled with odor. Utilize additional plastic bags to cover, if thefreezer is not available.
