A raccoon weighs significantly more than a squirrel, often times we find that a client’s home who called us for raccoon removal have their soffits dislocated from their proper place.
Since raccoons like the air circulation in the soffit, they tend to sleep on the soffit. Their weight at times cause the soffit to collapse creating cosmetic messes and extra entry points into your attic.
Our raccoon or wildlife removal services in Scarborough are done primarily through the use of a one way door. The one way door functions in a manner which allows raccoons or squirrels to exit through the door in one direction.
When the animals return to get back into the attic, the door will not open. This effectively and humanely removes nuisance wildlife from the attic. In a few days our technicians return to remove the one way door and seal the area with more mesh.

Several things come to mind when we think of raccoons; cute, vicious, nuisance. Well raccoons can be all 3 things, the main thing about raccoons is that they are territorial.
When approaching a raccoon during the day, which is rare, caution should be taken not to get too close or corner the raccoon(s). This is especially important if the raccoon has babies with her, or appears to be sick. We don’t want to risk being bitten or causing a raccoon to think her babies are in danger.
Raccoons are always scouting the neighborhoods in Scarborough looking for vulnerable homes. Nightly during their routes for food, they make pit stops on suitable roofs with weak attachments such as vents and pipes to break into.
It’s especially true, when it’s baby season. During the month of March raccoons are desperately looking for shelter to have their babies. If they are successful, you need to have a raccoon removal done before they do much damage.
Our technicians will always check your attic and make sure babies are not left behind! Babies are placed in a heated incubator and placed on the roof with easy access for the mother raccoon.

IS IT LEGAL TO TRAP RACCOONS IN ONTARIO?
Trapping raccoons in Ontario is legal, as long as there is no harm done to the raccoon. If you are trapping and relocating a raccoon, bylaw states that the relocation limit from capture point is 1 kilometer maximum. There are reasons for this limit, a couple are the transfer of disease and the raccoons ability to find food and water from the area it is used to, to survive.
SQUIRREL REMOVAL IN SCARBOROUGH
Squirrel removal Scarborough services are offered in two ways. The best squirrel removal service is done using a one-way removal and screening technique which allows squirrels to humanely leave your attic by themselves.
This process puts minimum stress of squirrels, making it the safest and most humane way for squirrel removal to be done. The second option is through the use of live traps.
Live trapping services are a last resort, they can provide a pest solution to squirrels that are stubborn and causing problems in the open, such as vegetable gardens. SIA Wildlife Control adheres to city by-laws and limitations when providing Scarborough squirrel removal services.
Some see squirrels as giant rats with fluffy tails. Squirrels are rodents, which means they gnaw at all things all day with their incisors. Squirrels follow a strict routine daily; searching for food, and hoarding food.
They are active from early morning until evening. As diurnal wildlife they contribute to noises heard in the attic during day time hours. In the evening they are usually quiet as they are resting.
Most squirrels make their nests within trees or on top of branches. When trees are not available, mainly due to construction and human shelters they move into human constructs.
Some areas where squirrels get in are roof-lines, middle of the roof or junctions. Other areas include ventilation caps and pipes on the roof. Usually they must chew their way into the attic, and once they’re inside they continue chewing at everything in their way as all rodents do.
Occasionally we find that squirrels chew side vents which lead into dryer lines, or stove fans. But generally squirrels can fit into any natural gap the size of a tennis ball, red squirrels fit into ping pong sized holes.
Squirrels have their babies in March, and a second time in August-September. Our technicians must enter your attic to remove the babies and reunite them with adult squirrels on the roof. Once the adult squirrels relocate their babies, we return to remove the box and double check the roof conditions.
Squirrel Removal In Scarborough is essentially done similarly to the raccoon removal process. The only difference is the one-way door which is designed specifically for the squirrel body and abilities.
