Skedaddle Wildlife in Montreal
Skedaddle Humane Wildlife Control has been providing Montreal home and business owners with humane solutions to wildlife conflicts since 2002. We specialize in removing raccoons, squirrels, skunks, mice, bats, birds, and other urban wildlife that live and thrive on the island of Montreal and the surrounding areas.
Well-adapted urban wildlife species find plenty of food and shelter by living in close proximity to humans. The island of Montreal is one of Canada’s most densely populated urban areas. In fact, the municipalities of Montreal, Westmount, Côte-Saint-Luc and Hampstead are among the 10 most densely populated cities in the country. It’s no surprise then that the city is also home to large numbers of raccoons, squirrels, skunks, birds and mice.
Food sources include unprotected garbage, bird feeders and gardens, while attics, chimneys and walls offer warmth and protection from the elements. The proliferation of urban wildlife such as skunks, raccoons, squirrels, bats, and birds can be a significant problem for Montreal property and homeowners. Humane Montreal wildlife control is a must to effectively remove these animals from houses and prevent their return.

Humane WIldlife Control vs. Trapping
For many years, frustrated home and property owners had few choices when it came to Montreal wildlife control. Exterminators were often the only option and their approach usually involved attempting to trap and relocate unwanted wildlife. This one-size fits all approach does not offer guaranteed results and does nothing to keep out other animals long-term.
Instead of setting traps and hoping to catch something, Skedaddle takes a targeted and hands-on approach that provides superior results for clients. As a pioneer in the wildlife control industry, Skedaddle Humane Wildlife Control prides itself on using humane methods to remove wildlife and perform the necessary repair work to prevent them from coming back. Our wildlife specialists are also equipped to clean up the mess left behind by an infestation and all of our workmanship and materials are backed by a lifetime guarantee.
