Raccoons in Toronto

 

Raccoons are well-known for their playfulness and garbage-thieving antics. The mask is no disguise for the animal infiltrating the garbage bin or ripping through the bag of pet food left out on the porch. Raccoons are very intelligent and use their dexterous fingers to pry open lids, unscrew caps and open doors. When they get into your trash, it can be a nuisance, but if they decide to make themselves at home in your house, they can do significant damage. Once they set up camp, evicting them takes specialized expertise and knowledge. Trust our team of expert technicians for safe raccoon removal in Toronto.

The masked bandit knows how to do winter right. After putting on the extra pounds during the fall months, they slow things way down for the harsh Canadian winters. They cozy up inside their warm dens and sleep for extended periods of time. More than just a long winter’s nap, these snoozes help the raccoon survive primarily on the fat they’ve stored up in their bodies. During a state called torpor, body temperatures drop, heart rates slow and metabolism is at a minimum, all of which reduce the number of calories the body needs to function.

Deep sleep makes raccoons more vulnerable, so they seek out safe places to den that is also warm. Most of the year, raccoons prefer a solitary life, but in the winter, they may snuggle up together in groups for the added body heat it provides. They use their strong paws and dexterous claws to access favoured locations, which may include your attic. They can do a great deal of damage to siding, roofs, flashing and soffits. Humane wildlife control measures are needed to remove these animals and to prevent future unwanted houseguests using exclusionary measures.

Bird Facts

There are three species of birds that are known for utilizing human structures for their nests: sparrows, pigeons and starlings. These birds are messy houseguests. Not only do they scatter nesting material, but their toileting habits leave much to be desired.

FACT:

Birds are carriers of a number of diseases that are human and pet health threats. All three birds that commonly take up residence in homes are potential carriers of the pathogens that cause salmonellosis and cryptococcosis. These illnesses are transmitted through the birds’ excretions. Effective wildlife control includes cleaning and clearing contaminated areas to ensure the home is again a safe environment.

FACT:

The largest woodpecker in North America is the beautiful pileated woodpecker. While it isn’t currently endangered or threatened, it is a protected species.

FACT:

The bald eagle has made an impressive recovery. At one time, it was critically endangered, but the banning of DDT and extensive conservation efforts led to a comeback for this regal eagle. Currently, there are nearly 40 breeding pairs of bald eagles in Southern Ontario.

FACT:

One of the rarest birds in Ontario is Henslow’s sparrow. In 2015, there were only eight potential sightings recorded across the entire province.

FACT:

The snowy owl is one of the few species of owls that does its hunting in the daylight hours. This is due to the fact that it is born and raised in the Arctic during the period of 24-hour sunlight. These birds use their keen powers of sight and hearing to detect their prey, even when the animal is buried beneath a deep layer of snow.
