As one of the most bike-friendly and well-planted cities in Canada, Victoria is a metropolitan area that attracts both people and animals. While seeing a family of squirrels or noticing a bird in the wild can add joy to your day, discovering that these small animals have moved into your residence may spark more negative emotions. Are you seeking out wildlife removal in Victoria, but you’re concerned about harming animals in the process? Humane Wildlife Control may be a great option for you.
At Skedaddle Humane Wildlife Control, we aim to remove animals commonly thought of as pests, in the most sustainable, nature-friendly way possible. Get in touch with us to determine the state of your current infestation or and set up an inspection. Learn more below about our services in the Victoria area.
Life in Victoria
As British Columbia’s capital city, Victoria provides rich culture, beautiful landscapes, and comfortable climates that attract international tourists and Canadians alike. Victoria offers employment in many business, government, and naval sectors while providing many days of sunshine, optimal temperatures that almost never drop below the freezing point.It’s an ideal refuge for those who love gardens — if you’ve never checked out the century-old Butchard Gardens, what are you waiting for? As with most areas across the country, where gardens thrive, so does wildlife.
The Garden City, as Victoria is commonly nicknamed, offers liveable temperatures, peaceful pockets of nature, stunning architecture, and delicious food. It’s easy to see why both people and wildlife flock to this area of British Columbia.
Common Wildlife Issues
Due to the extremely liveable conditions of the area, you may find yourself hosting multi-generational families of several species of small animals. Consider this list of possible wildlife you may find in your home:
- Mice that may live in your walls and chew on your cords, decorations, and leave droppings around your home.
- Raccoons that may seek out the warmth of your home to have babies.
- Squirrels that may build nests in your attic, crawlspace, and wall cavities.
- Bats that may take refuge in your attic.
- Birds that may build nests in your air vents (which become dangerous fire hazards).
- Skunks that may create multiple dens in your home and leave behind their scent.
