Very courteous and work was very well done
Great service, efficient and excellent
Staff is always professional and courteous. Thank you!
Outstanding service. Cooper was very knowledgeable and good to work with. He answered all of our questions and communicated with us on a regular basis throughout the process. He seemed to care just as much about fixing our critter issue as we did. Also learned a few interesting squirrel facts along the way. Our only regret was that we didn't call Critter Control earlier!
First, allow me to say that I've been with Critter Control for a year now and I've been pleased with the service for the most part. Today however was different. Raymond was my service guy and introduced himself as my new technician going forward. He was very thorough and explained to me how the bait stations worked and even showed me the inside of them. Unfortunately, there was a snake in one of the bait stations and because he knew of my fear, he called for backup to have it removed. He takes great pride in his job and worked diligently until all issues were resolved. Thank You Raymond for your excellence service. You are greatly appreciated! ~Xaviera~
Jack was our Wildlife Damage Control Technician from Critter Control of Dayton. Jack was very professional and explained exactly what he would do and when. He then followed through performing his service for two weeks. Although he did not catch any animals in the two traps he placed on our roof near two holes, he checked them daily, reset them as necessary, verified there were no animals nesting in the holes, and then sealed them with painted steel plates. If anyone has a problem with critters in or around your house, I highly recommend Critter Control as the solution to your problem.
Critter Control came right out and explained what they were going to do, how they would retrieve the squirrel and how they would capture it. I would definitely call on them again!
Excellent job. Very personable employee.Thank you John Cavendish.
Such a great company to work with. Always responded quickly! Very professional. Definitely recommend.
