Raccoon Removal Barrie

Barrie, ON

SIA Wildlife Control provides guaranteed raccoon removal services in Barrie, Ontario. We specialize in the removal of squirrels, groundhogs, bats, birds, skunks and opossums. Our understanding and experience with wildlife removal help us in determining exactly which of these animals have found their way into your attic, deck or porch. With every passing year there is an increase in wildlife population. This includes all wildlife, but especially raccoons because they have the easiest time with survival due to lack of natural predators and amazing survival instincts. Raccoons are extremely intelligent and have adapted to human city life styles and have no problem finding food and water within residential neighborhoods. This is to go as far as saying they even know garbage day routines!

As a result wildlife animals like squirrels and raccoons trespass into an attic space in Ontario on a daily basis.


How often do we hear footsteps in the attic and think “ghosts!?”, some of us at SIA Wildlife Control used to.. But that was many years ago before we learned how crafty raccoons can be. Raccoons are excellent climbers! They can climb nearly anything with a texture as long as their claws can maintain friction in gaps and pores. Homes in Barrie are designed similar to all homes in Ontario, and most homes are a piece of cake to climb for a raccoon. Trees do help raccoons to get on top of a roof, but it is not the only way up for them. Gutter drains, brick sidings are some areas where raccoons have no problem climbing on.

Raccoons often get into an attic of a home through roof attachments, some are ventilation caps, pipes, junctions and roofline edges. In a very unlucky scenario raccoons will make a hole in the center of a roof. This is common in homes with bad maintenance, such as not replacing very old plywood and shingles on time. Once a raccoon enters an attic in Barrie, that’s where we come in to provide raccoon removal services humanely and professionally. It’s important to do perform your raccoon removal in a timely manner for a number of reasons.

Raccoons are not as destructive as squirrels, but they do cause some damage over time. During their stay in an attic raccoons will claw away at objects like wiring, and plywood that is in their way. Some other issues are the displacement of insulation through regular travelling in your attic which lead to heating and cooling loss for your home. So it’s important to have your raccoons removed from the attic in a timely manner.

Raccoon babies

Once a year in March raccoons will have their babies. Raccoons litters can range between 2-8 babies per year. Unfortunately not all these babies survive the weather in the season mainly because raccoon babies can’t regulate body heat. Female raccoons knows this, and it makes them desperate in the month of March and they are most aggressively looking for shelter. Raccoons are curious, playful but also midnight home wreckers. All raccoons spend a portion of their night activity being nocturnal, to look for new opportunities to acquire new shelter. When they are evicted from an attic space or any area they consider home, they will return nightly for days, months and years to try and get back in.

Their behaviour is especially more aggressive during the baby seasons. Based on these experiences, our technicians at SIA Wildlife Control pin point vulnerable areas that raccoons can conceivably enter the attic during our inspections. Once we have an inspection report, we always offer the service to reinforce these areas so that our clients in Barrie never have to worry about being a victim of raccoons in the future.

Raccoon Feces

Did you know that raccoons are the main carriers of Roundworms? Also known as Baylisascaris Procyonis. If you have to clean up raccoon feces, we highly recommend that you hire professional cleaners whom are equipped with handling and experience with the job. It should only be necessary to clean raccoon feces if they have a potential to harm you, for example; Backyard where children play or front door steps.

If you must carry out the task yourself, be prepared and educate yourself with all that you can! Wear proper personal protective gear and learn how to dispose of them once you are finished to keep yourself safe. Remember that raccoon feces should be taken very seriously.

Raccoon Removal Barrie

Our raccoon removal Barrie services are provided through the use of one-way door systems or trapping and snaring. While we prefer to use the one way doors which are as humane as possible, it is at times very difficult such as open areas where traps and snaring excel. Raccoon removal is done in the order of inspection, securing the area with mesh and installing a one-way door to allow the raccoon to exit and prohibit it’s return. We use a generous amount of heavy duty 16 gauge galvanized carbon steel mesh to cover the surrounding area of the entry point. The procedure is done to protect and ensure the area will never be manipulated by wildlife to regain entry into. Therefor anywhere SIA Wildlife Control installs work is guaranteed for 2 years!

If your problem is in open space and not confined spaces such as attics, sheds, decks or porches then trapping may be right for you. Raccoon removal is made easy with our technician’s expertise and equipment. We are happy that we are able to serve you in Barrie, call for information or service bookings today and leave the rest to us!


Squirrels similarly are flourishing. On the upper hand squirrels have baby seasons twice per year where raccoons only have their babies once per year at the beginning of spring. Intelligently squirrels are not nearly as developed as raccoons, but they have pretty good survival instincts. Which is why they are often found chewing away at the roof finding their way into residential home attics. You may ask why? normally because animals can either sense or feel or see heat. As part of their survival instincts animals know where heat is escaping from.

Unfortunately with every home design there are mechanical functions for the walls and attics of a home to breath as necessary functions to avoid problems such as molding. Furthermore construction of homes and deforestation in general removes the only area where these animals take shelter, which are trees. Every March, August-September squirrels prepare their nest for the arrival of babies. Generally these areas are in thick trees or on branches which they make out of leafs and debris.

In the baby season squirrels cause the most amount of damage to homes in Barrie. Because they are desperate for  a warm area to have their babies, which more than likely is in an attic in a Barrie home. Squirrel removal gets complicated when squirrels have babies inside an attic or confined space. A proper squirrel removal should be done by physically removing babies and reuniting them with their parents near the entry point.

Squirrel Removal Barrie

It’s important to perform squirrel removal Barrie on a timely manner. Squirrels are the categorized as the more destructive wildlife animals in Barrie, Ontario. While they seem to be smaller their size shouldn’t fool you. Being smaller than a raccoon doesn’t mean that they are capable of doing less damage. It is actually quite the opposite for squirrels. Squirrels have a habit to chew everything that stands in their way. As a species they rely on their sharp teeth to chew away pine cones and other hard organic matter to feed on seeds and food.

Squirrels generally chew more holes into an attic shelter that they occupy over time. It’s a good idea to perform squirrel removal Barrie earlier than later for specifically the fact that they will do more damage over time. As time goes by, squirrels will chew alternate routes into an attic generally as a means for escape or easier entry. Also they do so for the fact that their teeth is in a state of constant growth. Chewing the shells of their food, or wood and your roof is a means to keep their teeth sharp and in check. Book an inspection if you feel you have squirrels in the attic, or call us at (647)715-6262.
