Oakville is a part of Southern Ontario, Canada. The suburban town of Oakville is situated in the Halton Region on Lake Ontario and is a part of the Greater Toronto Area. Oakville is developing fast with many residential communities expanding from their original areas along Lake Ontario. The development of the communities of Oakville has gone beyond the 407 toll highway.
The developments in Oakville have collided with the natural habitats of the wildlife in the area. Highways and sprawling residential areas have intertwined with Oakville’s natural landscapes. These developments have made it easier for urban wildlife in the area to thrive, breed, and feed. With the recent developments that took place in Oakville over the years, large populations of skunks, birds, bats, mice, squirrels, and raccoons now reside in the area.
Conflict is bound to arise whenever humans and urban wildlife share the same space. Urban wildlife such as birds, bats, squirrels, and raccoons can do substantial damage to property. They can damage ventilation systems, erode paint and foundations, spread harmful diseases, and transfer pests and parasites to pet or human hosts.
Skedaddle Humane Wildlife Control provides extensive and quality Oakville wildlife control services for residents and property owners. The company has more than three decades of experience when it comes to servicing Canada with animal control services. Skedaddle also helps educate home and property owners about the behavior and biology of urban wildlife found in their property. Skedaddle implements humane Oakville wildlife control services for property owners that prevent the recurrence of infestation by birds, bats, squirrels, and skunks.
Canada has assigned legislative jurisdiction over wildlife to the federal and provincial governments. The country’s provinces have signed and implement wildlife conservation laws from the national and international level. Legislations and international conventions such as The Migratory Birds Convention and the federal Migratory Birds Convention Act, Ramsar Convention, and Convention on Biological Diversity help protect not only Oakville’s wildlife but the rest of Canada’s wildlife as well.
