Founded in 1983 Critter Control® was developed around an entirely new vision for resolving nuisance wildlife and pest problems. All of our locations consistently practice humane wildlife management. We handle animals large and small, with a focus on vertebrate pests such as squirrels, rats, mice, snakes, raccoons, bats and a variety of birds. Our services focus on getting rid of wildlife and pest, repairing any damage they may have caused – then keeping them from re-entering your home or business.
Each office is ecologically responsible, ensuring that only environmentally sound solutions and humane animal removal techniques are used for all wildlife control, animal damage and nuisance wildlife removal problems. We provide wildlife control and animal removal services for:
• Property Management Companies
• Industrial and Commercial Clients

We control rodents, provide bait stations and recurring service, remove larger vertebrate pests and perform an integrated variety of control approaches to wildlife management and animal damage repair and prevention. Trap-free solutions, such as one-way doors and eviction techniques, can solve wildlife conflicts without trapping. It is our policy to live trap and relocate animals to the extent that is practical, cost effective and allowable under law.
Critter Control® established standards of excellence in wildlife pest control and upholds these standards with a professional staff of biologists. Our highly trained and qualified wildlife control technicians can assist in any nuisance wildlife issues, ranging from bird control to rodent removal.
