4 Things to Look for When Hiring an Wildlife Control Company

One of the unavoidable aspects of life in an area that is also occupied by wildlife is invasion of the residential property. Unfortunately, many times when this human and animal conflict emerges the animals suffer greatly as the methods to control them or keep them out of residential property threaten their survival. Through humane wildlife control, Scarborough residents can avoid the negative impact of wildlife invasion without infringing on animal rights or threatening wildlife safety. But how do you know that the company you’re hiring is the right fit for the job? Here are four things that make a wildlife control company the ideal contractors for an animal control job.

Always check with any contractor their level of safety when on the job.


It goes without saying that the longer a company has been in business, the better it gets at serving the needs of its clients. A good question to ask any company that you’re planning to use to handle your wildlife control needs is ‘How long have you been in business?’ A warranty should never be considered a good substitute for experience. Remember that a warranty will be of very little use to you if the company is not around when it needs to be addressed.


When previous clients are willing to endorse a company’s services or enthusiastic in suggesting that you engage them for your wildlife control needs, that indicates that the company is  all about high-quality service. Since we are living in an age of social media prevalence, it is a good idea to see what people are saying about the company on networking platforms. You can also do a quick google search to find reviews.


All professional humane wildlife control companies have a preliminary inspection as a staple part of their service package. It is impossible to handle wildlife invasion issues without first learning about the space and the intensity of the problem, especially since each case always has its own unique features.  Without an inspection, the wildlife technician may underestimate or overestimate the extent of the problem and either go overboard in treating it or apply insufficient control mechanisms. Companies that fail to do this often end up with disgruntled customers as the infestation is not properly addressed.

Are they professional, clean, and friendly?


Successful humane wildlife control is a process and a company that fails to recognize and apply this is doomed to disappoint its customers.  Here are some good questions to ask your prospective wildlife team before committing to payment.

What methods will you use to find out if offspring are in the space?

If you find wildlife offspring what will you do with them?

Who should I call if something’s wrong?

If something goes wrong how quickly can you return?

What do you do about the damage left behind?

What methods do you use to prevent a recurrence of the invasion?

What does your warranty cover and for how long?
