Common Wildlife In Canada

Bats

Size: 6 to 10 cm long, wingspan of up to 27 cm.

Colour: Varies from reddish-brown to dark brown.

Behaviour: Preferring dark and dry spaces, bats often inhabit attics, basements and chimneys. They can squeeze through narrow spaces effortlessly. Eating beetles, moths, mosquitoes and more, bats are one of the few mammals known to feed on blood. Bats possess the unique ability to see through echolocation, in which they emit high-frequency sounds to analyze the location of objects based on bouncing sound waves.

Opossums

Size: Up to 55 cm in length.

Colour: Grey fur with brown, red or black shades.

Behaviour: Similar to freeloading friends, once an opossum has settled in and is comfortable in your space, they are very difficult to remove. They are normally solitary and nomadic and make their homes near food.

Raccoons

Size: Up to 95 cm.

Colour: Grey to reddish-brown, with black rings around their bushy tails and faces.

Behaviour: Raccoons’ front paws work in a similar way to human hands. This allows them to climb, dig and lift things with ease. They use over 200 sounds to communicate effectively with each other. These sounds consist of screeching, chirping, chittering, grunting, groaning and snarls.

Skunks

Size: 50 cm to 80 cm.

Colour: Black and white.

Behaviour: Skunks have elongated bodies with short, strong legs. Skunks like to live in open areas of mixed forests but can be found in cities all over Canada. They live solitary lives and prefer darkness, often coming out at night. They have excellent senses of smell and hearing, but very bad eyesight. So bad that they can’t see anything more than three metres away, so sneaking up on skunks can startle them and cause them to spray you.

Frequently Asked Questions

Most wildlife pests are mammals and active for most of the year. Depending on the specific animal, you may experience more problems come spring when they begin to give birth. Both little and big brown bats are active for the majority of the year. The latter species is active year-round whereas the former species is active every month besides December, January and February. Raccoons are active for seven months of the year, from April to October. Although opossums don’t hibernate, they still seek out dens that are dry, sheltered and safe during winter, but will be active the rest of the year. Skunks are active year-round, from January to December. It’s very common to stumble upon an abandoned skunk den in late February. If you need wildlife skunk removal, it can be quite stinky to attempt it yourself. It’s better to call in the pest control specialists at Terminix Canada. 

When Canadian wildlife pitches up in or near your business, it can create lots of issues. Intruding wildlife causes structural damage while alarming your customers and your employees in an instant. Some wildlife species carry disease and contaminate any food that is left out.

Many species of wildlife spread disease through their fecal matter and saliva, and can pass it onto both humans and pets. Besides scratching and biting, some species like skunks spray to defend themselves. This spray can cause skin irritation, blindness and linger on your premises for a long time.

When you need to safeguard your reputation and public image, it’s important that you call a humane wildlife control team to swiftly deal with your animal problems. Wild animal removal is highly regulated, and you can get in serious legal trouble if you don’t do it properly. Whether it’s wildlife skunk removal you need or you’re wondering how to get rid of squirrels in your backyard, Terminix Canada offers professional and humane pest control solutions for all types of pest. 

For instance, in some areas it’s illegal to remove a female raccoon and her babies from their home until the young are old enough to evacuate with their mom.

Canadian wildlife operates similarly to how we all live our lives. Many species of wildlife are often looking for a good place to shelter that has access to food and water. Unfortunately, that often ends up being in our businesses. Many different species of wildlife have adapted to be able to eat just about anything from insects and bugs to our garbage.

Wildlife invades your space and tries to replicate their natural habitat. If you have bats, you probably won’t notice during the day unless you happen to stumble upon a sleeping one in a dark closet or corner of your building. In the evening however, you’ll likely hear the flapping of their wings as they fly around searching for food.

Getting rid of food sources is very effective when it comes to wildlife pest control. Make sure your garbage bins are securely closed and stored away from your premises. Trim any trees or shrubs that are touching your business as they can act as a bridge to your roof. Make sure that your business is free from any leaks, cracks or potential entry points via your chimney or vents. Many facilities are fitted with motion activated lights or sound repellents that are effective too.
