PROUDLY SERVING • St. Catharines, Niagara Falls, Welland, Fort Erie, Grimsby, Port Colborne

The Niagara Region is situated in Southern Ontario, Canada. The region covers a vast majority of the Niagara Peninsula. Its east side boundary, the Niagara River, is also the border of the country between the United States of America. The region is bounded by Lake Ontario to the north and Lake Erie to the south. The distinct landscapes of the region have made the Niagara Region a vital center for tourism and agriculture in Canada. The Niagara Wine Route and the Niagara Falls are just two of the main tourist attractions of the region.

The Niagara Region’s unique mix of urban and natural landscapes and densely populated communities has affected the habitats of the region’s wildlife. Skunks, raccoons, squirrels, bats, and birds are more at home in urban neighborhoods as much as in their former natural habitats. These animals make dens and nests in attics, spaces in walls, chimneys, or ventilation systems because of the warmth provided by these places. Once urban wildlife has successfully infiltrated your property, they can cause damage, spread bacteria and diseases, and spread harmful parasites.

Canada has federal and national laws that govern and manage the protection of wildlife. Laws implemented between 1900 and the 1960s have successfully banned commercial killing of wildlife over large areas and have helped recover lost wildlife.

Luckily for Niagara Region homeowners, Skedaddle Humane Wildlife Control provides Niagara animal control services. The Niagara animal control services offered by Skedaddle ensure that urban wildlife such as bats, birds, raccoons, mice, squirrels, and skunks are effectively and humanely removed from property.
