As a suburban area, it’s also home to a wide range of wildlife. Find out how our team at Skedaddle Humane Wildlife Control can help you enjoy wildlife at a safe distance.

Wildlife You May Encounter in Thornhill
There are many animals native to Thornhill and the greater York Region. Deer and other large animals may not be a nuisance, but some smaller mammals and birds may create safety issues in your home. Some of the most common wildlife in the area that may be interested in your home include skunks, mice, raccoons, birds, bats, and squirrels.
The last thing you want in a charming country home or quiet suburban property is a family of raccoons or a wandering skunk. These unwanted neighbours can even find an empty space in your home to move into.
Wildlife in your home can pose many health and safety risks. No one wants to be evicted, including furry tenants. Not only does wildlife feces carry the risk of serious illness, but these animals can become aggressive if cornered.

How Skedaddle Can Help You Enjoy Wildlife at a Distance
Thankfully, you have a local support team to help you handle wildlife that comes a little too close to home. If you spot any of these animals in or near your home, turn to our team in Thornhill for our proven wildlife control services.
We start by assessing the situation and carefully monitoring any signs of wildlife in your home. Next, we humanely remove any animal that may be on your property. Humane eviction is crucial, since many of these animals in Thornhill may have moved into your home to create a nest for young ones.
A thorough cleaning is an essential step that protects you from the risk of diseases and other health concerns. Raccoons, bats, birds and other unwelcome guests can be carriers of diseases that are easily spread to humans. Removing not only the animal itself but any feces and nest material requires professional services.
Finally, we repair your home and restore it to its pre-wildlife condition. This includes sealing any area that may allow future wildlife to enter your attic, basement or crawlspace. Once finished, we can schedule a follow-up inspection to be sure your home is still free from any unwanted guests.
Contact us to request an inspection from our Thornhill team. Enjoy thorough inspections and humane wildlife treatment when you turn to Skedaddle. You can still appreciate the local wildlife without inviting them into your home.
