Common Emergency Pest Removals In Canada
Emergency Bat Removal
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.
Emergency Raccoon Removal
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.
Emergency Squirrel Removal
Size: 10 to 70 cm long.
Colour: Brown, grey, black or red fur.
Behaviour: Squirrels have slender bodies with large bushy tails and often stand on their back legs when they’re not running or climbing. Canada is home to 22 different breeds of squirrels. Some breeds are ground-dwelling and some live in trees. Some squirrels hibernate through the winter and other breeds are active year-round.
Emergency Skunk Removal
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.
Emergency Sparrow Removal
Size: 14 to 18 cm long, wingspan of 19 to 25 cm.
Colour: Brown to grey colour variations in their feathers.
Behaviour: House sparrows only eat insects when their babies are young. During the rest of their lifespan, they enjoy a diet that includes grain crops, grain and other seeds. They often begin breeding in March and may continue until August. A pair raise up to four broods every year, having as many as six eggs at a time.
Emergency Pigeon Removal
Size: 29 to 37 cm long, wingspan of 62 to 72 cm.
Colour: Grey-blue feathers with iridescent throat plumage. Yellow, greenish and reddish-purple markings along their wings and neck, usually with a dark tipped tail.
Behaviour: Pigeons’ heads often move rhythmically and sway forward and backwards as they walk or stand. They are monogamous birds who mate for life. Their only defence mechanism against predators is flying, and despite having many predators, their population isn’t in any danger.
Emergency Starling Removal
Size: 19 to 23 cm long, wingspan of 31 to 44 cm.
Colour: Black, glossy feathers with a metallic/iridescent sheen.
Behaviour: Starlings form communal roosts which may end up being home to 10,000 more birds. During their migration, the flock populations can grow into hundreds of thousands in Southern Ontario and some other provinces. They nest in tall trees or buildings and enjoy feeding on wild or cultivated fruits like berries or cherries.
