Q&A with Local Franchisee Jeff Archer:
What are some of the most common wildlife issues that homeowners face in your area?
We tend to primarily deal with mice, squirrels, raccoons, and bats in attic spaces. Crawl space and ground pests include moles, skunks, woodchucks, opossums, raccoons, and armadillos.
How do the seasons affect wildlife activity in your area?

During the spring, most wildlife have their young, therefore we receive a lot of calls pertaining to an increase of noise in attic spaces. During the summer months, we stay busy with bats accessing the living space of residential homes and commercial buildings. During the winter months, most of our calls are for squirrels and raccoons in the attic (they are getting out of the elements).
Any prevention tips for residents in your area?
Animals generally access homes through louver vents, soffit roof interface gaps, fascia gaps, roof vents, power fan vents, general foundation construction gaps, foundation vents, and open chimney flues. Make sure any related issues are addressed promptly.
When should homeowners call Critter Control?
When a customer has any concerns of unusual noises or odors coming from their attic or crawl space, notices any unusual activity in or around the yard and landscaping that might be caused by a "critter," or if a homeowner just wants an inspection by a trained professional to give them peace of mind that their home is secured and animal-free.

Pest & Wildlife Pressure in Springfield, MO

The Greater Springfield, MO, area is well populated and home to sprawling parks with lush foliage. This mix of food sources and natural shelter makes the region perfect for a variety of wildlife.

Deer in Greater Springfield

Deer overpopulation is a major problem in and around Springfield. These pests cause issues by eating crops and darting across busy highways in front of cars. When deer overrun neighborhoods, they destroy gardens and landscaping. They can also carry deer ticks, which are a vector for Lyme disease.

Springfield Rodents

Mice and rats are the most common rodents in Missouri. These pests shelter in attics or basements and contaminate food as well as kitchen surfaces. Rodents nest inside wall voids and even within large appliances. A rat or mouse will chew through wires, which can result in costly repairs.

Missouri Skunks

The Springfield area is home to a thriving urban skunk population. These animals dig for insects in lawns and den under porches and decks. Especially in an enclosed area, a skunk's foul scent can linger for weeks.

Attic Restoration Services

Critter Control offers a complete attic remediation process which includes but is not limited to removal of soiled/compressed insulation, application of deodorizer/disinfectant, replacement of damaged flex AC ducts, and installation of T.A.P. (Thermal Acoustical Pest Control) cellulose insulation.
