These masked bandits can be pretty destructive.

Signs of a Raccoon Problem:

  • Scratching noises in your attic or walls
  • Holes in your roof, soffits, or fascia
  • Raccoon droppings around your property
  • Overturned garbage cans

Damaged Racoons Can Cause To Your Property:

  • Raccoons are skilled roof climbers and can tear off shingles or damage vents and chimneys to gain entry into your attic.
  • Once inside your attic, they can wreak havoc on insulation, wiring, and ductwork with their chewing and nesting habits.
  • Some raccoons also carry diseases like rabies, distemper, roundworm, and Lyme disease, posing a health risk to humans and pets.
  • Their digging for grubs and trash can raids can leave your yard looking like a mess.


The constant chewing can damage your property.

Signs of a Squirrel Problem:

  • Noises like scratching or scampering in your attic
  • Chew damage around your roof eaves or soffits
  • Holes leading into your attic or crawl space
  • Squirrel droppings in your attic or crawl space

Damages Squirrel Can Cause To Your Property:

  • Squirrels can squeeze through tiny openings and chew their way in, damaging soffits, fascia, siding, and roofing materials.
  • They can destroy insulation and wiring, and their droppings can create unsanitary conditions in your attic.
  • Squirrel droppings can harbour mould and fungus and spread diseases like leptospirosis and salmonellosis.
  • Squirrels can bring fleas and ticks into your home, posing a health risk to you and your family.


Skunks may seek shelter under your porch or deck, creating strong odours and potential hazards for you and your pets. Signs of a skunk problem:

  • A pungent odour around your property
  • Scratching sounds under your porch or shed
  • Dug-up burrows in your yard or under the house
  • Signs of digging in your yard as skunks forage for insects

Damages Skunks Can Cause To Your Property:

  • Skunk spray—their infamous weapon—can linger and damage furniture, flooring, and paint.
  • Skunks dig burrows under structures, compromising the foundation and potentially creating access points into your home.
  • Though not transmitted through spray, skunks may carry rabies and transmit it through bites.

How Buzz Boss’s Wildlife Control Services Work

Here's a step-by-step look at our professional wildlife control process:

Identification of Animal Being Trapped

We'll speak with you to identify the animal causing problems. This includes determining the species and behaviours of the animals involved. This helps us develop the most effective removal strategy.

Wildlife Inspection

Our technicians carefully conduct a comprehensive inspection of your property to assess the extent of the wildlife intrusion and the location of the animal's den or entry point. This helps us determine the best trap placement and bait type.

Wildlife Trapping

Depending on the animal, we tailor a trapping plan. This involves selecting specialized trap types, bait, and placement locations to capture the target wildlife safely and humanely.

Wildlife Monitoring

Throughout the trapping process, we consistently monitor the traps every 24 hours to ensure a quick capture. If a non-target animal is accidentally trapped, we release it immediately and adjust our strategy. At this point, the focus is humane capture to minimize the stress on the animal.

Capture & Release

Once captured, we safely transport the animal outside city limits and release it into its natural habitat.

We’re committed to humane wildlife removal and use safe methods for your family, pets, and the environment.

Benefits of Humane Wildlife Removal

At Buzz Boss, we prioritize both wildlife well-being and your safety. Here's why humane wildlife removal is the best course of action:

Ethical Treatment of Animals

We use live traps to capture the wildlife ethically and compassionately, minimizing the animal’s stress and ensuring its safe relocation from residential areas.

Reduced Risk

Humane methods decrease the chance of aggressive behaviour from frightened animals, keeping you safe from bites or scratches. It also protects pets who encounter our traps.

Long-Term Solutions

We go beyond removal. Our technicians identify entry points and attractants to prevent future wildlife intrusions, saving you time and money in the long run.

Sustainable Approach

Humane wildlife trapping and removal promote peaceful coexistence with wildlife in your community, helping maintain the natural balance of the ecosystem.

How Much Does Wildlife Trapping Cost?

There's no one-size-fits-all answer to wildlife trapping costs in Canada. The price can vary based on the type and size of wildlife, the location of the den, and the type of inspection and removal method we use.

On average, animal control can cost approximately $500, depending on the task at hand.

That said, we offer a clear estimate before we begin our work. This way, you'll know exactly what to expect.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is humane wildlife trapping and removal?

Humane wildlife trapping and removal prioritize the safety and well-being of animals while effectively removing them from your property.

At Buzz Boss, humane wildlife control involves using live traps that don’t cause any harm to animals. We also take steps to minimize the trapped animal’s stress during capture and transportation and release it back into a suitable habitat away from your home.

What happens to the wildlife after it's been trapped?

Once we’ve captured the live animal, we transport it to a safe distance away from your property to release it into a suitable natural habitat that has ample food and safe hideaways. It ensures the animal’s continued well-being away from your home.

How does humane trapping differ from traditional methods?

Traditional methods often involve lethal traps or poisons, which can be inhumane and ineffective and pose health risks for you and your pets.

Alternatively, humane trapping methods are safer for everyone. They involve live traps to minimize the animal’s stress and prioritize their well-being while keeping you and the environment safe from harmful toxins.

What can Buzz Boss Wildlife Control Service help me with?

At Buzz Boss, we have the expertise to humanely and safely remove raccoons, squirrels, and skunks from your property and relocate them to their natural habitat.

Why are wild animals in my house?

Wild animals look for good shelters with easy access to food and water. Unfortunately, that often translates into houses in residential areas. Wildlife like raccoons and skunks tend to eat from our garbage and hide in quiet garages, sheds, and under porches.

How do I stop wildlife from entering my house?

Do the following to keep wildlife from invading your home:

  • Secure trash cans, bring in pet food at night and remove bird feeders.
  • Keep branches away from your house to prevent easy access.
  • Inspect and seal cracks, vents, and chimneys – tiny holes are big enough!
  • Consider motion-activated lights or sound repellents.

If wildlife sneaks in, call the pros! Buzz Boss offers safe and professional wildlife control and removal solutions.

Are there legal considerations for humane wildlife trapping and removal?

Absolutely! Wildlife removal regulations vary by region. At Buzz Boss, we ensure our humane wildlife trapping and removal services—available for residents of Calgary, Edmonton, Red Deer, Regina, Saskatoon, Winnipeg, and Okanagan—comply with all the local regulations.
