Calgary COYOTES Removal and Control

Coyotes are commonly found in various parts of Calgary and its surrounding areas, particularly where there are forests, foliage, creeks, ravines, and wildlife habitats. Their proximity to cities and urban areas is due to the accessibility of shelter and food sources. Coyotes are active throughout the day and night, with peak activity occurring at dawn and dusk.

Unlike some animals, coyotes do not hibernate and remain active even during the winter months when food may be more scarce. One positive aspect of coyotes is their role in controlling populations of squirrels and rabbits, as these small rodents form a significant part of their diet, especially in urban areas.

If you encounter a coyote on or near your property, it’s important not to feed them, as doing so is against the law. Instead, discourage their presence by making loud noises and gesturing assertively. Coyotes in Calgary are typically timid around humans, especially if you display confidence.

The presence of coyotes near your property may indicate the availability of food sources, such as garbage or pet food left outdoors. Ensure that garbage cans and recycling bins are securely sealed to prevent attracting coyotes. Additionally, thinning out foliage can eliminate hiding spots for coyotes.

If you find yourself confronting a coyote, appear as large as possible, and throw objects to deter them. Maintain eye contact and back away cautiously, as this will signal to the coyote that you are not a threat. For Calgary Coyote Control and Removal, Contact Pest Exterminators 

FOXES in Calgary

Foxes, similar to coyotes, are primarily active during the dawn and dusk hours. Foxes roaming around Calgary’s urban areas have been effectively vaccinated against rabies, allowing their population to thrive and be supported in their habitat. However, reducing their numbers could potentially introduce new foxes from outside the area and potentially reintroduce the rabies virus.

Although foxes typically prefer habitats near ravines, streams, lakeshores, and wooded areas, they may also establish dens under porches and other protected urban locations. In such cases, it’s advisable to contact a Calgary wildlife expert to safely relocate them and ensure your property remains free from any encounters with fox families.

When foxes are present nearby, it’s important to take precautions to protect your property. Installing galvanized wire mesh buried at least 15 inches into the ground can deter foxes from tunneling onto your property. Additionally, securely storing food scraps and pet food in containers can help avoid attracting foxes. If unsure about the presence of foxes, keeping pets indoors and remaining active outdoors can discourage these shy animals from lingering around your property.

​​RACCOONS removal Calgary

Raccoons are among the wildlife species that have adapted to urban development and are now as common as city residents themselves. They are ubiquitous, although often unseen due to their nocturnal habits of foraging and causing mischief. With a diet ranging from grubs and nuts to corn and smaller rodents, raccoons happily feast on garbage and compost, and they have no qualms about making themselves at home in your attic, eaves, sheds, or garages.

SKUNKS Removal Calgary

Skunks may not be as common as other rodents and wildlife, but they can certainly make their presence felt. While they’re less active during the winter months, once spring arrives, they start to emerge and seek out locations such as under porches, sheds, debris piles, and around garbage and compost areas.

Skunks and Their Impact on Home Properties Calgary
  • Skunks are particularly fond of lawns and gardens, especially after rainfall when worms, grubs, and larvae become more accessible.
  • Their digging habits often result in small round holes, but the real damage occurs when they tear up chunks of sod to reach their food sources.
  • Finding shelter near homes is common for skunks, and getting sprayed by one can be a life-altering experience, even for pets.
Skunk problems in Alberta
  • Creating dens underneath sheds, decks, concrete foundations, and crawlspaces is a common behavior.
  • Skunks may become trapped in window wells after falling in.
  • Their spray can cause irritation and temporary blindness in pets and humans, along with a persistent odor that’s difficult to eliminate.
  • Like other rodents, skunks can carry ticks, fleas, and potentially rabies.
  • Their prolific breeding and lack of natural predators can lead to overpopulation issues.
How Calgary Pest Exterminator can help

SQUIRRELS in Calgary

Squirrels seem to be everywhere these days. While they may not always cause problems, when their numbers grow and they start damaging property and yards, it’s time to give us a call. Despite their cute appearance, they’re essentially just rats with fluffy tails and can be equally destructive. If they’ve become a nuisance, we know how to address the issue and we do so in the most humane manner. Contact Calgary Exterminator for Squirrel Removal Calgary services.

Common squirrel behaviors resemble raccoon problems in many ways:
  • Squirrels often nest in eaves and attics, posing fire hazards with their nesting materials.
  • Like raccoons, squirrels have a tendency to nibble on electrical wires.
  • Similar to other rodents, they’re notorious for chewing through walls and roofing, and sometimes they may fall and perish between walls.
  • Their incessant activity can lead to significant noise disturbances.
  • Given enough time, they can wreak havoc on gardens.
  • Leaving birdseed out is practically an invitation for squirrels, who can effortlessly leap meters to access feeders and deplete their contents.
  • Squirrels are carriers of potentially harmful diseases transmitted through their excrement, and they can also harbor parasites that pose risks to humans and pets.
When to Call Calgary Pest Exterminator

When infestations occur and openings in walls, ceilings, and eaves need sealing, and exclusion traps (one-way traps) need placement where squirrels have entered structures, it is time to call professional Squirrel Removal Company in Calgary like us. While some homeowners may try non-metal traps, squirrels can quickly chew through these.

Despite their perceived effectiveness, repellents such as mothballs, ultrasonic emitters, other animals’ urine (from predators), and ammonia-soaked rags are generally ineffective. Additionally, we ensure that once we remove squirrels, they won’t return anytime soon, nor will they be replaced. Finally, we thoroughly clean and decontaminate attics to ensure safety and eliminate odors.
