A mother raccoon had taken up residence in an old shed on our property, and Jeff made sure that the mother safely moved her babies elsewhere, while ensuring that she wouldn’t return by fixing the broken shed door for us. We were happy to have the option of not trapping or killing the raccoons, as we love wildlife but just didn’t want them making a mess of our shed. We recommend Jeff to everyone if they’re having wildlife issues on their property.

Jeff helped us to resolve a problem with rats in our cabin. He was quick, professional, and worked to make sure all access points were closed up; we haven’t seen signs of rats since!

We had otters nesting in our crawlspace, and Jeff worked to make sure the family moved on without disturbing them and breaking up the family group. He then closed up the entry point and checked back on the property several times to make sure no further incursions were made. I highly recommend Jeff for his attention to detail and care for wildlife.
