Extremely Professional

“We had mice in our attic that were keeping us up - we were desperate!  When I called Gunning, the woman I spoke to (I forget her name)  was extremely professional and SO understanding and booked us in very quickly (which we were beyond grateful for).  John came out and was so patient to my  horror of the thought of mice running around our house.  He took time to answer all of our questions and put us at ease.  It was very clear that he was extremely knowledgeable and the problem was quickly solved.  We would highly recommend to any one who requires their services!”

Fast and Courteous

“Very impressed with Gunning Wildlife Removal as their service was fast and courteous. John was able to provide same day service, as we were encountering a wasp/yellow jacket problem within our wall.

Honest, Hardworking, Reasonably Priced

“John is amazing! He's honest, hardworking, reasonably priced and great to chat with! I don't know what I can say that others haven't already but I've been telling everyone he's the guy to call all day long

He came this morning because I have either a raccoon or skunk under my garage and a small dog who wouldn't leave the area alone. In just a couple hours, the entry points were sealed up and my worries were gone.

Worth every penny and I'll be calling him again if another critter tries to move in.”

Thank You!

“John came out the day after I called him to assess a bat issue we had in our soffits.  He installed the device soon after.  Within a few days the bats were gone and so far they have not returned.  John did it humanely and easily.   I always prefer to give my business to a local company when possible. I have already recommended the company to others.  Thank you John  for your expertise.”

Incredibly Professional Service

“Couldn't be happier with the incredibly professional service John provided. Fingers crossed we don't get the little bandits back, but should it happen, I wouldn't hesitate to call Gunning.

I will say their price is quite a bit higher than others, and make sure to ask for a full written estimate before anything is done. The price I was told on the phone and the price I was handed on the bill was more than twice as high as I was told.”

- Jennifer C.
