Unlike 95% of the wildlife control industry, Skedaddle never uses traps or kills animals. We focus on sealing the home and preventing a repeat incident.

Little Competition

MINIMAL COMPETITION

Few companies focus on wildlife control specifically, and even fewer focus on HUMANE wildlife control. Most out there are one-person exterminator operations.

Semi-Absentee Opportunity

PERFECT SEMI-ABSENTEE OPPORTUNITY

THE SKEDADDLE STORY

1981

Bill Dowd was drafted to the (then) Stanley Cup Champion New York Islanders, where he went on to have a career for the next 3 years.

1985
Like many professional athletes, Bill found himself in search of his next career; he went back to college and found his calling — to pursue his passion for wildlife.
1989

After witnessing and learning about the cruel, unethical, and ineffective practices in the wildlife control industry, Bill founded his own humane wildlife control company.

2013

The company was rebranded as Skedaddle Humane Wildlife Control and the first franchise was awarded in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

2017

As the largest wildlife company in Canada, Skedaddle decided to try their time-tested model in the United States.

TODAY
After the first U.S. franchise in Milwaukee became a huge success, Skedaddle starts awarding franchises nationwide!
