If possible, get estimates for the removal from several companies. Most wildlife removal companies will come to your home and provide a quote for performing the wildlife removal. Ask about their removal methods and what happens to the animal. Insist the company use humane techniques and not kill the animal unless it is absolutely necessary.

In Toronto, one of the primary nuisance animals is raccoons. These nocturnal scavengers can do substantial property damage and cause a mess if they get into your home. While some may think raccoons are cute, they are actually very smart and industrious. They are experts at finding their way into attics and will often create entrance holes right through the exterior walls.
Once a raccoon is in your attic, they will chew on the insulation and wiring and can nest in the air ducts. Raccoons can also gain entrance to a home through an unguarded chimney. They especially like these dark, secluded areas to nest and have their babies
Another common wildlife invader is the brown bat. These small creatures can find their way into your home through a variety of openings. They are so small that they can fit through a vent or a damaged attic window. One of the problems with bats is they usually don’t invade a home individually. Instead, before you know it you’ll have a colony of bats in your attic. These little mammals can produce some pretty toxic amounts of bat guano or droppings and the smell will soon become overpowering.
Mice are another common pest problem in our area. They like to move indoors when the weather gets cold and will nest in all sorts of places. You can find them in kitchen cabinets, in garages, and in attics.
