Laconia, in Belknap Country, New Hampshire, was founded in 1855 and has over 16,000 residents. Laconia is seated between two large lakes: Lake Winnipesaukee and Winnisquam Lake. In June for 9 days, Laconia holds the Laconia Motorcycle Week, or “bike week”, and in the winter, the city holds the Laconia World Championship Sled Dog Derby! Before 1855, Laconia’s area was once a large Abenaki Indian settlement. Early explorers stumbled upon this settlement to find that the outlet of the Winnipesaukee River has great fishing weirs, and so named the area, “The Weirs”. Laconia soon was looking like a town at the beginning of 1765, when lumber and gristmills were established and taverns were built. In 1822, the courthouse was erected. Today, Laconia boasts a great public school system with two private Christian and Catholic schools and the Lakes Region Community College. Laconia even has a music school, named Music Clinic! Laconia’s great history and growing population make it a city worth seeing!

Raccoon Removal

We all know these familiar critters. Raccoons are famous for getting into trash bins and being mischievous. Raccoons are highly intelligent animals that can surprisingly cause lots of damage to your home. Although they are cute, the truth is that raccoons are more dangerous than they may seem. Raccoons can carry many diseases such as canine distemper and rabies that can be harmful to your family and pets. Never attempt to catch a raccoon on your own.

Inspection: We come to your home and look for signs of any raccoons such as dens, scratch and dig marks and scattered trash or disrupted potted plants.

Removal: We have found the best method for raccoon removal is to use a special trap that lets us humanely catch and remove them to another location.

Repairs: We come to your home to modify any habitat and repair any damage done by the raccoons on your property.

Rat and Mice Control

Even though these fuzzy rodent critters can be cute, they can become a big problem that causes lots of damage. Where there is one rodent, there are often many others, so it is important to call us as soon as you feel you have a problem. In seasonal places such as New Hampshire, rodents of all shapes and sizes like to make homes in spaces that are warm and cozy. Rodents cause property damage and contaminate food sources, causing homes to become uninhabitable. It is very important that we eliminate the entire population the first time.

Inspection: Rodents of all shapes and sizes leave basically the same signs of presence, such as droppings, bite marks, holes and shavings from chewing and nest building.

Removal: We always assess each rodent situation on a case-by-case basis. Every rodent situation is different.

Repairs: Preventing rodent reentry is key—we come to your home to patch up holes and repair any damage caused by chewing or nesting.

Squirrel Removal

These small critters love to get into your home, onto your property and into places like your gutters and attics. This can cause many problems with water damage and electrical shortages. In New Hampshire, they are most active in the spring season when mating is in full swing. Squirrels are agile and hard to catch; this is where we come in.

Inspection: Squirrels leave behind very easy-to-recognize bite marks that let us know they are there. We also look for nests and built-up debris.

Removal: We come and set up special traps that let us catch and remove the squirrels.

Repairs: We come to you to repair bite marks, holes and remove nests. We also do habitat management so they are deterred from coming back.

Bat Removal

We bet you didn’t know that New Hampshire is home to up to eight species of different bats. These critters love to find their way into high places where they can colonize and make homes. Bats are very hard to remove on your own as they are very quick and agile. They are also dangerous to handle because they are covered in their own droppings called guano. Never try to remove a bat on your own.

Inspection: When we come to your house, we can tell if bats are there because of the strong ammonia smell of their droppings.

Removal: Removal of bats requires that we set up a bat valve in your home to allow them to have a one-way route to fly out through. We customize this to your home.

Repairs: We offer repairs to any damage done by bats and decontaminating the bacteria-filled ammonia-smelling guano they leave behind.

Skunk Removal

Skunks are very common in Laconia, New Hampshire. They become an increasing problem in the springtime when they become more active and start having their offspring. Skunks have strong claws and snouts for digging, which can cause lots of damage to your property. Skunks also carry diseases. A skunk bite is more dangerous than its stinky spray.

Inspection: Critter Control comes directly to your home to look for signs of skunks such as holes, dig marks and claw marks.

Removal: We have special live traps to catch skunks that allow us to remove them without harming them. We use food for bait to draw them into the trap.

Repairs: Things can become problematic when a skunk decides to make your home their home. Their strong claws can create holes and damage structures around your home. We also help repair anything needed and help with habitat modification to deter skunks from coming back.

Great natured guys and very thorough. Appreciate their attitude and service.
Michele and George delivered pre-eminent world class customer service! They gave a 24 hour notification with their arrival date and time, were prompt, knowledgeable, and easy to do Business with! They planned their work, and worked their plan. Just when we thought that customer service was a dying art, they restored our confidence that Critter Control is passionate with their craft! I would highly recommend this Company, as they exceeded our expectations! Sincerely, Karen Doherty and Kris Kepler
Excellent communications, execution and friendly. I highly recommend this company!
The Critter Control team went above and beyond to make sure that NO CRITTERS could get into my home. We thought we had conquered the problem, but we still heard squirrels getting in, so they returned to reassess and finish the job. They actually pulled up our deck boards and found that the critters were getting in because of a rotted board underneat the cantilever. They replaced the insulation, rotted boards, and put a metal sheeting over everything so NO squirrels or critters could chew their way in! If you need critter control - you need to contact them. They stand behind their work 100%.... Thank you Rodney & Team!! Great Job. Ellen R. Haslett, MI
Eric was grate,give him 5 stars and much thanks.
