Richmond Hill is located just 25km north of downtown Toronto and certainly their unofficial motto, “A little north, a little nicer,” ring true to anyone who has been there.

Though growth has slowed ever so slightly in recent years, Richmond Hill is still one of Canada’s fastest growing communities with a population of 185,541 people and projected to break the 200,000 threshold by 2021.

Richmond Hill has a unique place in Canadian history as the launching pad for the legendary comedy troupe the Royal Canadian Air Farce, who recorded the first five seasons of their CBC radio show from 1973-8 out of the Curtain Club.

There is plenty to do in Richmond Hill all year round. During the summer months you can take in the Concert in the Park series that has run every Thursday in July and August since 1975. The parks are worth visiting even without a concert as Richmond Hill has competed in the international ‘Communities in Bloom’ competition for several years now, showing of its public and private green spaces. When the weather turns south, Richmond Hill is also home to the GTA’s only indoor wave pool to make you believe you’ve made a tropical escape.

If the skies are clear, there’s no better place to look to the stars than the David Dunlap Observatory which opened in 1935 and includes a 74 inch reflector telescope – the largest of its kind in Canada. But, while residents of Markham are busy looking up at the stars, pesky wildlife can sometimes move in a bit closer to home.

That’s what A1 Checkmate Wildlife Removal and Prevention is here for. The Fish and Wildlife Conservation Act, prevents anyone from relocating animals further than one kilometre away, but we will still solve your problem safely, swiftly and humanely so any unwanted wildlife is permanently removed from your premises.

While it’s not wildly known, many household fires are caused by unwanted animals living on your property. Chewed wires, clogged chimneys and infested vents are all putting your home at risk of a fire.

At A1, we have experience dealing with bats, raccoons, opossums, wasps, foxes, rabbits, skunks, squirrels and snakes. After the wildlife is removed, we will seal off any access points and guarantee our work for a year afterwards.

Beyond simply removal, we also handle preventative care including:

  • Chimney screening,
  • Securing roof & side vents
  • Deck securing
  • Staircase and sheds
  • Live trap rental and release
  • Dead animal removal
  • Branch trimming
  • Eaves trough cleaning and capping
  • Bat house installation
