Wildlife Control

They cause damage and potentially spread diseases. Critter Control technicians have the experience and training to find the nuisance wildlife, trap and remove the animal safely, and provide longterm control solutions.

Dormer and Gable Vents
These vents are favorites for bats, birds, squirrels and raccoons. Bats will rest behind the slats. Birds will build nests in them and raccoons and squirrels will simply push through the slats, through the thin screen behind them, and enter your attic. Let us secure these for you.

Attic Vents
A flimsy piece of screen in most attic vents is all that stands between your attic and animals like squirrels, rats, and bats. Birds will build nests in  attic vents. Raccoons frequently pop these right off your roof to gain access to your home. These animals gain access to your attic via attic vents.  Trapping is usually required to remove the animals. Exclusions for wildlife control include roof vent guards.

Seasonal Nuisance Wildlife
Image of Bats
Bats
Bats roost in attics, chimneys, behind siding, and barn rafters because they offer a dark, dry space where they can safely give birth to their young. When flightless pups are present, you cannot remove the bats. Critter Control can still help with roosting bats.

Image of Raccoons
Raccoons
Raccoons are one of the most common animals found in residential areas. Raccoons usually den in the cavities of trees, rock crevices, or burrows dug by other animals, but raccoons have no problem setting up shop in attics, chimneys, crawl spaces, storm sewers, and under porches.

Squirrels
If you hear strange noises early in the morning, you might have a squirrel nest in your attic. In the fall, squirrels are looking for a safe place to give birth to their second litter. Attics provide the ideal conditions to protect juvenile squirrels. Squirrels also seek out attics for protection from cold weather.

Rats
Rats (Rattus spp.) have caused more human suffering and more economic damage than any other vertebrate pest. From causing plague epidemics (the "Black Death" of Europe) to rat-bite fever, whether feeding on stored grain or gnawing electric wires, rats are enemies of humankind.

Wildlife Removal

Nuisance wildlife problems can affect anyone, any home, any business. You will know if an animal. Usually, the first signs of an animal infestation are strange noises and pungent odors. Unwelcome wildlife is more than a simple nuisance. Not only will wild animals impact your day-to-day life, but they also cause damage to your home and spread diseases to you and your family.


Wildlife like raccoons, bats, squirrels, snakes, and birds find safe places to create dens and nests in your home. These animals tend to avoid people and stay in uninhabited areas of your home like attics, wall voids, chimneys, and crawlspaces.

 

The most effective wildlife control is whole home exclusions. A full home exclusion creates a barrier that prevents animals from entering or re-entering your home. Exclusions provide long-term and safe solutions to keep an animal out. We seal all types of entry points like plumbing stacks, gable vents, ridge vents, crawlspace vents, and roof returns. In addition, Trutech offers warranties on full home exclusions.

The habitat around your home plays a big role in an animal’s decision to make your home it’s own. Animals love a good nesting space, and brush/debris on the ground level makes a great nest while tree limbs that give animals access to your roof make for a great highway to your attic. You can help prevent animal entry by trimming limbs and keeping your yard debris free.

Other Wildlife Control Services

Dead animal removal

Occasionally an animal might die on your property. The dead animal will cause a terrible smell and spread diseases. First, we remove the carcass. Second, we get rid of the smell and apply sanitization agents.

Attic restoration

If an animal has been living in your attic, you might need to replace some or all of the insulation. Wildlife in your attic can be destructive. Raccoons, squirrels, and rats can use insulation to create nests. Animals in your attic soil insulation by defecating and urinating.

Critters like skunks, opossums, armadillos, chipmunks, moles, gophers, and groundhogs create dens under your house or dig burrows throughout your property. Animal control in your yard can be time and resource intensive.

Wildlife Removal Services

You should not leave an animal in your home. The damage caused by an animal generally goes unseen because it happens between the walls, in the attic, or in your crawlspace. Most wild animals carry parasites or diseases that can impact your health.

There is no one-size-fits-all solution; each job requires a custom approach. Our goal is to provide safe animal removal, remediation and repair, and prevention.

We inspect every home and build a custom plan to resolve any wildlife problems which can include:

  • Humane animal trapping
  • No trap evictions
  • Direct capture
  • Wildlife repellents and deterrent techniques
  • Damage repair
  • Sanitization Agents
  • Ecoparasite treatments
Rodent Control

Pests in your home can be a nuisance and lead to unsafe conditions. When people think of a pest problem, they usually think of termites, cockroaches, fleas, or bed bugs.

Pest control services for rodents can require an extensive process. We can remove all rodents like squirrels, chipmunks, gophers, voles, and beavers. A rat or mouse infestation can be especially invasive. Rodents breed at a rapid rate. If you start to notice signs of a rodent infestation, you need a strategic plan to control the entire population. Effective rodent pest control includes traps, bait stations, habitat modification, and exclusion tactics. To ensure your home stays rodent free, Critter Control offers affordable year-round, recurring rodent control.

An unchecked rodent population can damage your house and attract other nuisance wildlife like snakes. Nuisance wildlife can bring pests like fleas, ticks, and mites into your home. We apply treatments to exterminate those pests during our wildlife removal process.

Pest Control

Stinging insects like bees, wasps, hornets, and yellow jackets are most active during the summer months. They can become a nuisance or danger when their nests are unavoidable. Stinging insects can build their nests inside wall cavities, in your ceiling, near doors or windows, and under roof returns.

Exterminating the pests is not an adequate solution. An abandoned nest or hive can attract other pests like roaches, ants, raccoons, and rats. When the nest is built inside your home, we have to physically remove it which can include significant carpentry skills a pest control expert might not have.

It has been very effective at reducing the number of mice, lizard, and snake sightings. During one visit Edgar removed a rattlesnake he came across. We may see a snake maybe two to three times during the spring and summer months, but it has been far less than before.

Full service. Excellent job of extracting raccoon, cleaning all animal waste, sanitizing, and spraying anti-parasitic substance. They closed all potential ports of entry, though the work did not match the vinyl, and it looks kind of tacky. They added blown insulation, which added a lot to the cost. They provide a one year warranty against animal intrusion, with an option to extend the warranty at the end of each one- year period. They were willing to work with me one the price. I will probably extend my warranty, and will definitely use them it the future.

I was really impressed by these guys. Got a call within a few hours of making an inquiry. Had a rep out to inspect the situation by the end of the week, and when they laid out the timeline they kept if not exceeded listed times.

Rob, Travis, and Jim were all professional, polite, and courteous and after months of hearing squirrels in my ceiling they are gone and the repair to my flashing looks excellent. Can't recommend these guys enough.

Critter Control did a great job of evaluating our house for sites of entry after we found bats and a squirrel in our attic. They completed their work promptly and professionally.

We heard some noise from the corner of our house. Concerned that it could be inside we called for an inspection. Jessy arrived as scheduled and conducted a complete inspection of our home. Based on a recording we made he determined we had a tree frog on our roof. I was pleased that we didn’t have any rodent in our house. And his inspection could a few spots I can tighten up around my house. I am very happy with the outcome.

We have a vacation home in Western Mass and haven’t been there much during the pandemic as we live and work in Atlanta, GA. On our most recent visit we noticed that we had some rodent intrusion as well as some un-welcomed wildlife who decided to make our vacation home their home.

We contacted Critter Control and Mr. Cahoon was quick to set up an appointment as we wouldn’t be in town very long. He came out and assessed our issues. He informed us of our options to both eradicate and control future intrusions. Keeping in mind that wildlife is wildlife! He quickly got to work eradicating the rodents and wildlife from our home and addressing the intrusion issues. We feel much better leaving our vacation home for periods at a time knowing that Mr. Cahoon and Critter Control did their job and did it right! Thanks again!

We bought an old cabin last spring , it was used for years as a summer vacation cabin, therefore maintenance wasn’t a priority. After our project to remodel started, we found evidence of mice droppings.

We immediately called Critter Control and they came and gave us a reasonable estimate to remove all remnants and insulation. They sanitized and replaced with new insulation and sealing up points of entry .

Seeing their professional work made us feel confident and secure that the problem was solved ! Everyone we worked with continued to show professional and respectful work. Highly recommend this company! We continue to use critter control monthly to be sure we are mice and bug free!
