Q: Should I block entrances to nest/den/dams?

A: Blocking a den entrance or opening can create additional problems, as animals are often trapped inside. In these cases, animals cause further damage by creating more entrances in order to escape. Should the animal fail to escape it may starve and die, creating odour and pest problems.

Q: Couldn’t I just trap nuisance animals myself?

A: If you are the land proprietor, it is legal for you to trap the animal yourself. However, you are responsible and subject to all laws governing humane treatment of animals and restrictions on release distances. You are also at increased risk of exposure to disease and parasites.

Q: Can I build barriers and do repairs myself?

A: Yes, you can do this yourself, however it is important to be thorough, as animals will immediately migrate back to the area they have been living. A trapper is trained to provide the highest standards in exclusion measures, as they are familiar with animal biology and habits.

Q: What is done with the trapped animal?

A: We make every effort to relocate and release animals to an appropriate area, as outlined by provincial government restrictions, in order to maintain bio-diversity, thus ensuring sustained populations for generations to come.

Due to the nature of habitat and territorial aggressiveness, some animals do not react well to live release. These animals are trapped terminally, in accordance with all laws and regulations regarding the humane treatment of animals.
Ex: beaver, coyote.
