Halifax, Nova Scotia is the largest city on the eastern coast of Canada. It boasts a rich history and many Canadian landmarks such as Peggy’s Cove and Citadel Hill. Due to the proximity of the city to the coast, there’s a diverse wildlife population. Animals have moved into urban centres and are thriving by living in attics, sheds and other structures. Skedaddle Humane Wildlife Control helps homes and businesses in the Halifax area prevent wildlife from causing damage to their property and keeping families safe.
