Wildlife Control Services
We all love to watch wildlife from a distance but having one live in the walls or rafters of your home is a bit too close for comfort. Not only do they cause damage and make noise in the walls they are a health hazard to humans.
Solutions Pest Control preferred approach to wildlife control is to gently nudge them back out into their natural surroundings to find an appropriate and permanent place to live.
Humane Wildlife Control Services
Wildlife Control is defined differently by others in the pest control industry. However, at Solutions Pest Control, we define Wildlife Control as the humane removal of wildlife from your home and living areas; and then the prevention of future wildlife problems.
The “humane” part is simple. Solutions Pest Control avoids the use of live trapping and relocation if at all possible. When the animal is trapped and relocated, it is taken out of its territory and away from its family and food supplies. This greatly reduces the chances of survival.
Allowing the wildlife to remain in its natural territory while excluding it from your home (or business) ensures the delicate balance between humans and animals is preserved.

Bats and some other wildlife species are protected under BC laws. You may want to give us a call before you consider wildlife removal a DYI project. At the very least we can give you some precautionary advice.
Birds are a complex issue because of the diversity in size, species and characteristics of birds. We have an entire page describing issues around controlling birds as pests.
Bats are beneficial to the environment, however, there are reasons for homeowners to be concerned.

- Bats play an important role in our environment as they can consume up to 3,000 insects in one night.
Wildlife Pest Control Treatments
Remove Wildlife from your home
While pests may range from potentially dangerous to mostly annoying, there are none that you will want to keep in your home. Solutions Pest Control understands that the safety of your home and family is of utmost importance, and we’re here to help you deal with all pest infestations.
At Solutions Pest Control we understand that our community lives in harmony with nature. When things get out of balance and nature encroaches into our home or endangers our family then we need to push back, but just to restore the balance. In general, our Wildlife Treatments are to:
- Remove the animal from your home back to their natural habitat
- Perform remedial exclusion, that is plug the holes and prevent the animal from entering the home again
- Customer education, identify what may be attracting the animal to your home so that the animal is not inadvertently “invited” to return.
The specifics of the Wildlife Treatment will vary depending on the species of the pest.
Dealing With Protected Species
Certain precautions must be taken with protected species like bats, due to their protected status. In such cases, simple extermination cannot be considered. Rather, a process of “exclusion” can be used to remove them. This involves sealing up entry points and leaving a single exit which is fitted with one-way doors that allow the animal to leave, but not re-enter the home. In some cases, hand removal of the pests may be called for.
Planning a Pest-Free Future
Once the pest is gone, we continue to work with you, repairing access points, looking for other possible weaknesses that might allow ingress, and showing you ways to discourage pests from returning, such as eliminating food sources. Your property should be attractive to you, not to them!
Pest Control has as much to do with Education as it does with Eradication.
