Many of Canada's wild animals have learned to adapt and even thrive in our homes. For example some wildlife have found that attics make great places to live. Other animals find refuge under homes or porches. Invariably, these animals cause damage. Rodents, like squirrels and rats, love to chew on electrical wires once in an attic, and this causes a serious fire hazard. Raccoons can cause serious contamination in an attic with their droppings and parasites. Same goes for bat or bird colonies. We specialize in solving Canada's wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, we do it all.

We do not handle dog or cat problems. If you need assistance with a domestic animal, such as a dog or a cat, you need to call your local Alberta province animal services for assistance. They can help you out with issues such as stray dogs, stray cats, spay & neuter programs, vaccinations, licenses, pet adoption, bite reports, deceased pets, lost pets, local animal complaints and to report neglected or abused animals. There is no free Calgary animal control for wildlife issues.

Calgary Wildlife Removal Tip: How to protect yourself from a spraying skunk: The obvious way to protect yourself from a Canadian spraying skunk is not to get too close but Iím aware this isnít always possible. Sometimes your paths will cross with an animal such as this one, and when it does, there are usually vile smelling consequences. You need to make sure youíre out of harmís reach - the average Canada skunk can spray up to three meters, or about ten feet. Thatís quite the distance - about two human lengths. If a big and powerful skunk gets the right angle however, the squirt can travel for up to 9 feet. The average seems to be about six to ten feet. In the right conditions, another skunk can then smell that spray for up to a mile away. In short, getting sprayed is not fun, and the scent is not easy to get rid of. The reason the spray has suck staying power is because itís an oily liquid - you know how difficult it is to get grease off of anything. When you bear that in mind, the first ingredient you should look at in your quest to get rid of the scent is dish washing detergent - that stuff is designed to get grease, or oily substances, from plates. If you come across a skunk, donít try to deal with the situation yourself, especially if youíve never done it before. The spray can be very irritating, especially if it gets into your eyes, and it can cause temporary blindness too. That puts you at risk for an actual physical attack from the animal even though this isnít likely.

Calgary Animal News Clip: How To Scare Away Canada Geese? Donít we just hate it when we see our garden full of Canada geese poop and believe me, nothing can be worse than walking on a pile of it! Some people think that the best way of scaring away geese is to fire a gun. But it is indeed the worse way of scaring them off as you can accidentally hit one of the geese as well resulting in its death. Furthermore, killing a goose is against the North American Migratory Bird Treaty. Since the Canada Geese are those species of bird which love to socialize, eat and even poop just about anybody's property, it's important to scare it away with some practical and harmless methods. Having a dog in your home premises helps a lot when it comes to scaring geese away. A border collie is the perfect dog for serving this purpose as it is good at chasing geese and eventually scaring them away. But if you think that at some point your dog might become interested in hurting or even eating the geese, then you should think about changing your dog. Your purpose is not to herd the birds, your only purpose is to make sure that they donít start considering your front and back yards as their permanent homes.

The one main reason of why geese start inhabiting in our lawns is because we or someone else tend to feed them. This is a big no-no if you are actually not interested in making them feel comfortable within your property. Not only you should avoid feeding them yourselves but you should also forbid others to do so. Besides by feeding the Canada geese you are actually developing dependent habits in them. Since the Canada geese is also fond of living near small ponds and even fountains, so if you have got some sort of water accumulation in your front or back yard, you should make sure to plant low lying shrubs and plants over there. In this way the geese will feel uncomfortable and will eventually leave. This remedy is also applicable if you want to grow small shrubs and plants in your whole lawn for drawing them away. Sometimes scaring geese away with amplifying sounds also works well. If you have got recorded sounds of some lethal birds, then you can play them on your stereo and it will definitely work as well.

If none of the above mentioned suggestions seem to be working for you, then you can also use some sort of chemical deterrents for scaring the geese away. Rejex-IT is considered as a highly effective deterrent for scaring geese away. Apart from these traditional methods of scaring geese away, the new advancement in technology has also come up with various harmless methods of saving your property from the Canada geese. Eagle Jackite, an Eagle like repellent for Canada geese is designed in the shape of an eagle. The Eagle is attached to a pole and flies as menacingly as an actual eagle does. It is also effective in scaring away other birds like ducks and heron as well. Another effective way of scaring geese away is by the use of a Scare Windmill. The blades of this windmill are designed in such a way that to the geese it looks like that a flock of geese is flying away from your property by getting frightened of something. When combined with Eagle Jackite it works wonders and each and every goose on your property is scared away successfully. By using these harmless methods of scaring the Canada geese away you can not only have your yard back to you but your peace of mind is also restored as well.
