Richmond Hill Wildlife
The city is home to a variety of wildlife such as birds and small mammals, many of which are as diverse as its residents. The most common wildlife in Richmond Hill include birds, rodents, raccoons and squirrels. On occasion, foxes and beavers may also be spotted, although these species are shyer and tend to either avoid people or live in areas that are less populated.
Most of Richmond Hill’s wildlife population is not harmful to people; however, if you have bird feeders on your property, you might invite sparrows, swifts or wrens to nest in and around your home, and these feeders might also attract squirrels and other rodents that might decide to move in without an invitation. When this happens, we at Skedaddle Humane Wildlife Control are ready to help you.
About Our Services
If you find that birds, rodents or even raccoons have made themselves at home on your property, we can help. Our wildlife technicians can help you identify what type of animal you are dealing with and then advise you about the best way to proceed. They will humanely remove any adult animals and their babies before clearing away nesting material and food caches that might attract other animals. Since dry nesting material can present a fire hazard, our techs will remove any nests found in your ventilation system.
Sometimes, an animal population can increase in your home without you knowing it. This is often common with smaller intruders, such as mice. Our wildlife technicians can spot entrances, exits and pathways used by rodents to find their nests and remove them as well as the animals. Once the cleanup process is complete, we can offer you information and options about how to prevent wildlife from entering your home in the future.
