What Our Clients Say
Markham Wildlife Removal is the place to call. They are very caring, responsible, professional, on time and efficient. The owner is very nice & friendly. The day after their work on our house was done, we noticed a weak sound of animal screaming and scratching inside the downspout. I used any household tools I had to try and get the poor squirrel out, but couldn’t. As soon as I called Markham Wildlife Removal, even though it was after office hours, and their business with us was finished, the owner himself came and to our surprise freed 3 baby squirrels and their mama from the downspout! At no cost! I will definitely call them again (hopefully I won’t need to) but if I ever have to 🙂 great customer service hands down!

we found some raccoon droppings from backyard deck. After some research online, I found Markham Wildlife Removal. After calling Sherwin, he arrive next day and help me check attic and deck. Professional suggestion provided, we decided to make a full protection for our house. Sherwin and Jamie finish the whole work in half a day. High efficiency and excellent job.

A huge thank you to Markham Wildlife Removal !!!Sherwin and Jamie were our raccoon saviours. They showed up well equipped and professional. The second they arrived they took to the problem and raccoon proofed our home. At a moments notice they were there to remove the entirety of the raccoon family. They were very knowledgeable about raccoons. They openly shared some interesting facts about raccoons that have now made us very informed. Sherwin and Jamie were very assuring and calming during the time they were with us. Their level of professionalism was outstanding. The six baby raccoons were safely reunited with their mother, just in time for Mother’s Day. Thank you again, Sherwin and Jamie!!

I called Sherwin in the morning after a night of hearing walking and scratching in the attic. He arrived promptly as promised later in the afternoon and did a thorough investigation and video of the roof and all around the house to see where an animal could gain access. He found a large hole that a raccoon had ripped out of the soffit and showed me exactly how the raccoon had gotten in by shimming up the drainpipe. He quickly put in a one way door and mesh surrounding it and the next morning our unwelcome visitor was gone. The raccoon did try to get back in but the extra mesh that was installed prevented him from coming back. Many thanks to Sherwin for the exceptionally prompt and professional job that he did. I highly, highly recommend SOS as the best company to get rid of your wildlife in a safe and humane way.

What should I do if I find an animal that appears hurt or orphaned?
If you see an injured animal, it’s always good to call an animal rehabilitation centre like City of Toronto Call 311 Visit Their Website Procyon Wildlife 905-729-0033 Visit Their Website Toronto Wildlife Centre 416-631-0662 Visit Their Website Ministry of Natural Resources Visit Their Website They will be able to give you the most appropriate instructions on how to properly handle the situation. If you see what appears to be orphaned wildlife, keep an eye out for a couple hours before you call it in or try to tend to it. Wildlife animals often leave their young out while they scavenge for food, so taking it while the parents are simply away to run errands wouldn’t be the best course of action.
What methods are used for wildlife removal? How about baby raccoon/squirrel?
Based on the company you contact, you may get different answers. Our preferred method of wildlife removal is through the use of a one-way door. A one-way door is a door installed on the main entry point a wildlife animal is getting through by, which allows the animal to leave the property but not to re-enter. We like to use this because it is humane, there is no harm towards the animals, and humane-wildlife contact is kept at a minimum. In cases where baby wildlife is involved, a one-way door is not used. In these instances, the mother is first kept at bay while our technicians fetch the baby wildlife animal. They are then placed in a heated insulated box near the property, easily accessible for the mother to find them. She then relocates her young to another, pre-established den.
What should I do if I see wildlife on my property?
If you see wildlife on your property, call a wildlife control expert to help. Do-it yourself methods conducted by someone with no experience or training can accidentally cause harm to the animal, to someone on the property or cause damage to your property. Calling wildlife and pest control technicians are the best way to ensure that the methods being conducted are safe, humane and profession while delivering effective results.

What happens to the animal once they are captured?

In these instances, wildlife is caught on the property but then promptly released no further than 1km away as per Ontario rules and regulations.
