Thousands of raccoons call Mississauga their home, but unfortunately, homeowners and businesses must pay the price of them getting into gardens, attics, and roofs. Raccoons are attracted to locations where food, water, and shelter are easily accessible and they are known to tear away at loose shingles on your roof and bury inside, making nests in your roof and attic. Raccoons might seem harmless, but they can do substantial damage to your property. That’s why there are services for raccoon trapping and prevention in Mississauga. Here’s what you need to know about our raccoon removal and control in Mississauga.
Hawkeye’s Licensed Raccoon Trapping Service in Mississauga
Many companies that provide wildlife removal state that live trapping raccoons is a short-term solution, but this is only because most companies only have the means to trap and relocate fur bearing animals within one kilometer. The issue with this is that a raccoon can travel over six kilometers in a single day, so will most likely end up right back on your property. Attempting to send animals to a location further away will only create new issues in the new environment the raccoon is released in. This new location might seem appropriate, but it may also cause stress, anxiety, and conflict with other families of raccoons in that territory. It also increases the risk that mothers will abandon their babies after relocation.
Most important of all, in the province of Ontario it is illegal to trap and relocate animals further than one kilometer.
Hawkeye Bird and Animal Control Inc. is different because all our techniques are registered with the Ontario Fur Managers Federation. We offer permanent solutions to raccoon problems, and we meet the guidelines set out by the Ontario Veterinary Medical Association. We are the only company in Canada with the licenses and means to trap raccoons and euthanize them if necessary. We will also ensure there are no raccoon offspring that are left behind in the den.
