In the city as well as in the country, it is common for small wild animals to choose a residence or other building as their living environment. Indeed, a human construction constitutes a safe and solid shelter, often offering a source of food.
This cohabitation quickly becomes complex, as wild animals cause significant damage, notably by gnawing on the structure of the building or by producing excrement that emits strong odors. Some even get their supplies from your pantry or garbage cans.
The most common species encountered are squirrels, marmots, striped skunks and raccoons. It is also possible to be invaded by other animals, such as birds or bats.
Our expertise allows us to control the presence of these animals on your property in complete safety, by capturing them and releasing them several kilometers from your home, in a more natural environment. Afterwards, we can prevent a new infestation by caulking, installing screens or other devices. So you don't have to fear them anymore.
