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

This Space Available 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 This Space Available 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 ###-###-####
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 Manitoba Province 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
This Space Available is a full-service Winnipeg wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Winnipeg pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all
similar to wildlife removal. This Space Available 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.
Winnipeg 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 Winnipeg raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
Animals in attics - this is our specialty at This Space Available. 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 Winnipeg 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 Winnipeg 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 Winnipeg 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 Winnipeg pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Winnipeg 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 Winnipeg trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Winnipeg 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. This Space Available does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by This Space Available. 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
. This Space Available
also provides dead animal removal in Winnipeg. 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 Winnipeg 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 Winnipeg. And remember, we are a private business, not Manitoba Province Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the Province at 204-986-2155.
Manitoba Province animal services does not handle any wildlife issues.

Winnipeg Wildlife Tip #1:
What attracts unwanted wild animals to your neighborhood or houses? - Learning what attracts unwanted wild animals is perhaps one of the greatest tools at your disposal in order to prevent them from coming back in the future. It is also a good idea if you have heard stories of local homes in your neighborhood being invaded by the strange looking creatures. Of course, there are a few obvious points that you will need to look out for, such as a food source, and also some that may not be quite so obvious to you, such as a wood pile. However, once you have learned about what attracts the unwanted wild animal to your property, you can then take active steps to avoid it coming back in the future. The food source is the main one, as it is with most wild animals. The bird feeder that drops bird feed on the floor - that is a prime target for a wandering unwanted wild animal, as is the garbage can that contains all of your leftovers which will end up being a tasty delight for the scavenging marsupial. Once you eliminate these food sources out of the equation, your unwanted wild animal will have nothing to eat and will therefore decide to look elsewhere. The same applies to a warm and cozy home, which a mother unwanted wild animal will definitely be looking for. This could be something like your attic, a wood pile in the yard, the space underneath the stairs leading to your house, under your porch, or even in a wood stump. Once you have closed off all entrance and exit points to your home, such as the gap under the porch, your unwanted wild animal will have to look elsewhere for a place to stay warm and dry, and the same applies when you remove the wood pile or stump from your yard. One thing that a lot of people do not realize, especially if they have once fallen prey to an unwanted wild animal invasion in their home, is that the urine of the unwanted wild animal will often attract other unwanted wild animals. This means that once you have safely removed a squatting unwanted wild animal from your home, you must get rid of all traces left behind by it; that means urine, feces, etc. this helps to prevent the threat of disease as well as the threat of another unwanted wild animal making your home its own.
Winnipeg Wildlife Tip #2:
Raccoon urine smell - There is a type of commercially available raccoon urine product that has some efficacy on relocating a pest critter. This urine smell, called eviction fluid, is made from the urine of a male raccoon and is used to encourage a nursing female to move her litter. Male raccoons will not hesitate to kill infants, and for this reason the mother might immediately move her wards to a new location if a male is detected. Though this product works some of the time, it doesn't work on all females, and it almost never works on males. Granted, most raccoons inside of a home are females with litters. Aside from this one situation, using raccoon urine to deter animals generally doesn't work. The only real defense against such an intelligent pest animal is to keep your home secured and repaired. Remember that a raccoon will make small holes larger, so it's up to you to make sure all the tiny openings around your building are sealed tight. Keep a special watch on the upper areas of your home. Since they are out of reach and out of immediate eyesight, these are the most likely areas for a raccoon to find entry into the building.
