Prevent and Protect
The last part of our process involves making sure your home is secured against future wildlife intrusions. Skedaddle Humane Wildlife Control uses the highest quality materials such as screening, silicone sealant and other hardware, to keep dexterous and cunning wildlife on the outside.
Since 1989, Skedaddle Humane Wildlife Control has been an industry leader in wildlife prevention. Our wildlife control technicians specialize in ensuring that your home and family are protected as part of the Skedaddle Humane Wildlife Control customer service experience.
ASSESSING THE PROPERTY
It all starts with a detailed property assessment performed by one of our experienced technicians. When we come to visit your home we make it a priority to identify all active or potential points of wildlife entry. Urban wildlife in our neighbourhoods is here to stay. The best way to reduce conflict and protect your home long-term is to secure it against re-entry.
Our experience in the industry allows us to recognize signs of wildlife activity and vulnerable areas of your home that can be inviting to critters. Our technicians take the time to give your home a top to bottom inspection in search of clues that are often overlooked by most homeowners. Sometimes it’s the tiniest of chew marks or a trace of fur that gives it away. An understanding of wildlife behaviour and biology is critical to success.
Identifying and securing all entry points is key to remaining wildlife-free. A failure to properly perform this initial assessment can lead to delayed solutions or a re-infestation.
PROTECTING YOUR HOME
Once we’ve identified the areas that need protection our technicians roll up their sleeves and begin the hard work of keeping animals out. We go where the animals go to install physical barriers. Quite often this process involves climbing ladders and scaling roofs. All of our technicians are trained in roof and ladder safety and employ industry leading health and safety equipment to protect themselves and our customers.
Tools of the trade most often include heavy gauge galvanized steel screening that cannot be chewed through or destroyed by animals. Our skilled technicians expertly install this barrier over vulnerable holes or vents while respecting the aesthetics of your home.
For smaller animals, such as mice and bats, we must seal tiny cracks and crevices on the outside of the home using our wildlife exclusion sealant. It’s designed to withstand harsh Canadian weather and won’t crack or shrink as your house expands and contracts through the seasons. The key here is an eye for detail as mice and bats can slip into holes the size of a dime.
When you hire Skedaddle Humane Wildlife Control you get guaranteed results backed by nearly 25 years of industry experience. Our technicians have the knowledge and skill to keep animals out of your home for good. We provide written guarantees to ensure that your home is protected long-term.
