Urban populated cities such as Toronto GTA are a great place for rats to survive and thrive. Rats are generally nocturnal and like to avoid contact with humans. In Toronto most homeowners have had an increase in rat infestations. 360 Pest & Wildlife Control mainly deals with norway rats and roof rats.
Norway rats also known as sewer rats tend to be larger and more aggressive than the roof rats. They tend to nest in basement portion of structures but they also live in buildings, farms and fields. There are cases that norway rats have attacked humans and pets. They carry diseases such as bubonic plague. They chew wirings which cause fire, eat and urinate on stored food, and create a real health hazard to humans.
Roof rats as their name suggests like to be in high point of structures such as the roof. Also called black rats, they are typically smaller than norway rats but cause the same sort of issues for humans. They are nocturnal animals and like to forage for food in groups of up to ten. They often return to the same food source and can remember complicated routes from their nest to different food sources.

What our happy clients say
360 Wildlife was great! They showed up soon after I called, fixed the problem, and we’re done without missing a beat. A few months later I called them again for some help and they showed up that morning. Again, it was a great experience.In a day and age where you never know what you’re getting with an Internet find, it’s good to know that people are out there that take their work seriously and do a good job. I’d definitely call them again and recommend them to family and friends.
Ray answered our call immediately and came out the same day. Amazing pics and video of damage to our property and on-the-spot repair. Informative and professional service and answered all our concerns. Would highly recommend Ray and Sam.
In these times its hard to hire a true Professional service..never knowing what you’re going to get ! My experience went above and beyond ! Prompt, professional, courteous service ! Extremely satisfied and most definitely recommend to anyone.
When I discovered that a family of squirrels had made a home in my soffits and attic, it was a less than welcome surprise. Wildlife 360 responded quickly to my request for help. They were prompt getting to my home to size things up and solved the problem in a short time. Their team is courteous and professional. I’m glad I made the choice to work with them and would highly recommend their services.
These guys are awesome! Professional, prompt and thorough! We had our entire roof/soffit protected so that wildlife can no longer access our attic. Well worth the money! It was a true pleasure dealing with these gentlemen! I’d highly recommend this company to everyone!!!
