A Mission Beyond Profit

Humane Solutions was founded by Joe Abercrombie in 2016, while he was studying sustainability at the University of British Columbia. Joe recognized that the wildlife and pest control industry is dominated by companies that purposefully neglect root causes in order to convert wildlife conflicts into sources of recurring revenue. Consumers are paying endlessly for services that fail to deliver a meaningful result, and globally, our ecosystems are experiencing unquantifiable and irreparable damage.

Humane Solutions has grown 800% in the last two years based on a simple model of doing good business and rolling profits into driving awareness and sustainable development.



All of our services are designed to achieve a permanent result, this is what sets us apart. Shaking hands and closing the job is always the end-goal.


Every client gets the same treatment, whether it's a simple one-off job at a house or a high-profile commercial contract. We want our 5-star reviews.


Ethics drive every aspect of our business. From how we treat the species we manage to how we price our jobs, we always consider the impact.

Standing Alone in our Industry

Our clients often find us after trying out the big corporations and experiencing the industry standard. We offer what no one else does; a cheaper, faster, better service that just happens to drive sustainability. Whether you make choices with your ethics or wallet, we've got you covered.

Here's how we do it:


We Use Science

We record everything. Not using poison allows us to record population data, hot-spot locations, and use trends to tailor our service to your unique problem. With data, we can ensure we are on the right track, and work steadily towards a meaningful result.

We Have Broad Skillsets

We come from all backgrounds; we're Jacks of all trades. The root problem is rarely simply the presence of a species, it's usually a mix of structural flaws and available resources. A full service can include anything from roof and foundation repairs to landscaping and tree trimming. We are prepared for anything.

We Use Common Sense

Sounds obvious, but our industry is void of common sense. Where our competitors will assess your problem and ask the question "how do I sell a recurring service here?", we ask ourselves "what is the root cause here? Can a permanent result be achieved? What is the holistic approach?"

The Best-Rated Team Around

Our management team consists of scientists, sustainability experts, and wildlife professionals with decades of experience in the industry.

Our technicians are a mix of skilled tradesmen and established pest control professionals.

What ties us together is our company's mission to bring sustainable solutions to wildlife conflicts, disrupt degradative industries, and drive sustainable development wherever possible.

    Humane Solutions investigated my problem professionally and provided me with a solution promptly. … More I would have used their service if not for other issues that I had to deal with. Highly recommended

    Couldn't ask for a nicer, more effective, or thorough team. At all points of our rat-proofing … More journey, from scheduling, tracking, problem solving, and providing us with the tools or information to keep our home rat free, each person we worked with has been wonderfully responsive and empathetic to the stress that rats in or around the home can have on a family with young ones.

    Humane solutions solved our raccoon problems in a professional manner. Their customer service … More were prompt and courteous with their replies to my inquires. The technician was very easy to work with and was very knowledgeable when answering all of our questions. Humane solutions were transparent and upfront with their fees after their complementary estimate. They double-checked and ensured the raccoons were gone when they wrapped up their service. The one year warranty provides a peace of mind after their service. It was a pleasure to work with them in solving our raccoon problems!
