Freedom. Flexibility. Fast Time to Profit.

Discover the freedom and flexibility of business ownership with a Skedaddle Humane Wildlife Control franchise. The services industry is one of the largest sectors of the economy, and is projected to continue growing. Skedaddle’s environmentally friendly model for wildlife removal, exclusion, and restoration—a widely recognized brand in Canada—is now introducing opportunities for early adopters in the U.S. to get in on this high-growth market.

Skedaddle gives new franchise owners a remarkable head start with an established marketing strategy, call center, and back office already in place. As a pioneer in the U.S. market, you will have franchise experts at your disposal to help you hit the ground running, with a positive return on investment achievable in the first year. This turnkey franchise is a rare opportunity, with impressive profit margins and an average of just 250 working days per year.

Open Skedaddle Humane Wildlife Control in any of these available states: AL, AK, AZ, AR, CA, CO, CT, DE, FL, GA, ID, IN, IA, KS, KY, LA, ME, MA, MI, MN, MS, MO, MT, NE, NV, NH, NJ, NM, NY, NC, ND, OH, OK, OR, PA, RI, SC, SD, TN, TX, UT, VT, WV, WI, WY, DC.


Skedaddle has been humanely removing and excluding raccoons, squirrels, skunks, birds, bats and mice from homes and businesses since 1989. The company’s unique, animal-friendly approach and unprecedented lifetime guarantee on future home invasions, workmanship, and materials have propelled the business from a single service vehicle to 29 franchise units across Canada. By offering the value-adds of seal-off and damage repair services, Skedaddle franchisees continue to generate high-ticket revenue where most pest control companies leave off.

Skedaddle is a cornerstone brand of That Franchise Group, an established empire with over 400 franchise operators and annual system-wide sales exceeding $100 million.

The Opportunity

The Wall Street Journal reports that hundreds of millions of dollars are spent annually on nuisance wildlife control, yet many of these businesses exterminate the animals. As environmental concerns and animal rights continue to be a hot topic in the public eye, these inhumane methods are becoming unacceptable. The need for wildlife remediation will increase as humans continue to build in their natural habitats, and wildlife control is a recession-proof business. When the economy gets tough, homeowners may spend less on vacations and luxury items—yet they protect their main investments, their homes. The opportunity for high profits and growth is already there. It is just waiting for you to grab it.

Industry Statistics

  • The economic damage in the U.S. from all forms of wildlife is conservatively estimated to be about $22 billion.1
  • Raccoon populations in some cities are roughly 150 per square kilometer.2
  • Rats can potentially produce 15,000 offspring a year.3
  • With an average of six to eight babies per litter, a family of six mice can multiply into 60 over the course of three months.4
  • Squirrels are so destructive that they are considered the #1 threat to the U.S. electrical grid.5

Training and Support

Skedaddle’s training and support programs are the best in the industry and therefore experience is not required. Skedaddle will guide you through all phases of the process of opening and operating your own franchise. That Franchise Group includes six home services brands, and as home services franchise experts they strongly believe the success of the brand hinges on the success of individual franchise owners. Skedaddle is 100% dedicated to supporting new business owners with extensive training and ongoing assistance. At no point will you feel like you are in this alone. You will have the Skedaddle network behind you.
