What to Know About Squirrels 

  • Squirrels are active during the day, so you may hear them at dawn and dusk.
  • Squirrels rarely bite unless they’ve been cornered or feel threatened.
  • Squirrels carry and transmit diseases, including Lyme disease, salmonellosis, tularemia, and leptospirosis
  • There are 200+ species of squirrels worldwide. In North America, common species include gray, fox and red tree squirrels, ground squirrels and flying squirrels.
  • Female squirrels typically have two litters a year, with an average of two to four young per litter. Litters are usually born in late winter and midsummer. The average squirrel lifespan is between five and six years.
  • Squirrel droppings are similar in size to peas or raisins, approximately 1/4" in length.
  • Squirrels can carry ectoparasites including fleas and ticks. 

Eliminate Squirrels from Your Business – Now 

Squirrels can be a nuisance. They gain entry through extremely small holes, which can lead to getting inadvertently trapped. In these cases, they often build nests in eaves, soffits, walls, and crawl spaces, causing significant damage to the interior and exterior of the building.
Squirrels do the most damage with their teeth. They often gnaw on electrical wiring, which puts commercial properties at risk of electrical fire. They also can damage structural support beams, shingles, lead pipes, and gutters.
Our squirrel control specialists are familiar with their behaviors and equipped with the training and tools to safely remove them from your commercial property.

Our current technician is very good.  He always calls us the day before so we know when he is coming.  He also has done a very good job keeping pocket gophers in check.

Mike did our service today. He was awesome! He addressed and resolved a couple of critter issues we were having. It's really helpful to be reminded when he was coming and texted me when he was on his way. Thank you for the great service!

We appreciate that your company was able to rid our property of the squirrel activity that we observed. We were concerned that the squirrels would dig under the foundation of our house (which had happened to a neighbor in our area).

Thank you for doing what you said you would do to eliminate this squirrel activity.

We personally have a bad infestation for a while, Critter Control has been stellar in the customer service/ communication department, We are still working on the infestation but CC has been absolutely above and beyond our expectations with some of our projects hurdles.

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.

Melinda is a true professional.  She has helped us maintain a "critter-free" home.  Whenever a mole decides to visit our property, she is right on top of it.  Her recommendations about mosquito control made a big difference for my boys to be able to enjoy our backyard.

We use Critter Control to deter snakes. We haven't seen any since using the monthly service. They are quick to answer questions and explain snake behavior. Also, if any are found they remove them with no extra charge.

Have been using for almost 10 years after a record rat invasion. The help I had back then was like a super-helpful friend taking a few weeks to rid me of that invasion. Over the years I have had a few other representatives. They are always nice and helpful.

On recommendations from a nearby pest control company, I called Critter Control for suspicious bat droppings.

Madison came out the same day to do an inspection. She was knowledgeable, thorough, and highly professional. She examined the ‘matter’ that had been scattered on my threshold and thought it was foliage. But she then asked to go up to my attic space where the bats could be roosting. She had to walk up 3 flights of stairs with a heavy ladder. She again spent some time searching all the nooks and crannies and found nothing.

She seemed so interested in her craft, it was truly inspiring to see! She reassured me and is writing up a prevention strategy for my appraisal. She charged me NOTHING!! I am so impressed. We need more Madisons in this world!

Daniel did a great job pigeon proofing. We have a huge pigeon problem in our neighborhood and the pigeons were roosting in the gutters of my house and my two next door neighbors, who also had nests in their gutters and under their air conditioner. Pigeon poop filled our gutters, and was piled on the outside floor when I bought the house. Since Daniel's pigeon proofing, and my neighbors also pigeon proofing their gutters, fireplace chimney, air conditioners, and removal of nest, I rarely see pigeons any more. Only the lovely native sparrows, robins, vermillion fly catchers, and mourning doves visit our property now.
