Hamilton is where it all began for Skedaddle way back in 1989. Our founder and President, Bill Dowd is a born and bred Hamiltonian who recognized the need for a Hamilton wildlife control service specializing in effective, humane and permanent solutions to wildlife problems. Over 30 years later, through dedication to customer service we have grown from one service vehicle to over 21 and we are still proud to call Hamilton home.
Despite the city’s industrial reputation, wildlife is here in the form of raccoons, squirrels, bats, birds and skunks. When these critters make their way into homes they can cause severe building damage and unsanitary conditions. It is at times like this that Hamilton residents need a professional wildlife removal service they can trust. Our mission hasn’t changed since 1989 and we remain as dedicated as ever to providing clients with the very best in humane wildlife removal services.

Our established reputation in the city has given us the opportunity to be featured in local media outlets, including the Hamilton Spectator, CHCH TV, and CBC Hamilton. We’ve been asked to provide expert commentary about wildlife in the city, most notably during Hamilton’s 2015 rabies outbreak. These organizations not only trust us for our opinion they even call us when faced with their own wildlife issues. We have removed bats from CHCH studios and helped to rescue a baby hawk from the Hamtilton Spectator building. We are also proud to be the official provider of pest and wildlife control services for the Hamilton Tiger-Cats and Tim Hortons Field.
