Skedaddle Wildlife Control In Kitchener
Skedaddle Humane Wildlife Control has been offering humane solutions to wildlife conflicts in Waterloo Region since 1989. Since that time we have helped thousands of clients humanely rid their homes of unwanted wildlife and prevent their return. The region is one of the largest and fastest growing areas in Ontario and is home to large populations of raccoons, squirrels, skunks, birds, bats and mice. These species are well-suited to urban and suburban environments making the need for safe, effective and long-term wildlife control as important today as it was in 1989.
What you need to know about wildlife in Kitchener.
Wildlife is welcomed and encouraged by residents of Kitchener, Waterloo and Cambridge. Waterloo Region is bisected by the mighty Grand River and is home to vast and connected expanses of woodlands, trails, parks and rivers that allow for strong biodiversity that extends right into our neighbourhoods. When humans and wildlife live in close proximity there is bound to be conflict. Mother raccoons and their babies can occupy an attic causing thousands of dollars in home damage. Mice leave unhealthy droppings in drawers and pantries. Skunks burrow below porches bringing terrible odors along with them. In the summer of 2019 alone multiple bats tested positive for rabies in Kitchener.
When urban wildlife species get too close for comfort the safest option is to have the problem dealt with by a professional. The truth is that wildlife in Kitchener-Waterloo is here to stay. Trapping and killing wildlife is both inhumane and ineffective at solving problems long-term. That’s why Skedaddle Humane Wildlife Control uses humane methods to remove wildlife, clean up the mess left behind and perform the necessary repair work to prevent re-entry.
