In Toronto we are not oblivious to the sudden cold, snow, and warm which regularly surges unexpectedly. Raccoons and squirrels spend their time claiming dens during the warmer seasons in Ontario. An average squirrel or raccoon in a neighborhood has roughly 3 to 5 shelters. Their most dominant shelter is where they will spend most of the colder times resting. Squirrels hoard food in their primary shelter area for the long winters spent indoors.When it is too cold outside, they will remain indoors for as long as they can afford to without food or water. Because of this, wildlife activity is lower in the winter. However for homes, it’s the opposite for rodents. Mice and rats can be heard within walls and ceilings during winter due to low temperatures outdoors.
Removal Procedures For Wildlife
Our one-way doors for raccoons, squirrels or skunks remain in the clients property for a period of 5-7 days. We compensate for the colder periods of inactivity to ensure animals leave the attic. Wildlife tend to stay indoors for longer when it’s cold outdoors. By doing this we eliminate the possibility of trapping an animal inside the eviction area. Furthermore this allows ample amounts of time for the client to see changes in the noises. When you hear no more noises it means that the animal has left and things have returned to normal. When our technicians return, they double check the work and reinspect the roof. If everything checks out, they remove the one-way door and seal its area with mesh.
