Overview

Though their name loosely translates to 'quill pig,' porcupines are not related to pigs in any way. In fact, porcupines are the second-largest North American rodent after beavers. Their quills are primarily used as a defense mechanism, though, contrary to popular belief, porcupines cannot shoot them at predators. Instead, they lash their tail and embed their quills in the skin of their enemies. Each porcupine has approximately 30,000 quills on its body.

Porcupines chewing on wood trim or trees? Porcupines, sometimes called "porkies" or "quill pigs," are heavy-bodied, short-legged, slow, and awkward rodents, with a waddling gait. They rely on their sharp, barbed quills (up to 30,000 per individual) for defense.

Critter Control was very responsive and professional. The issue lasted a bit longer than we would have liked, but the technicians were very prompt to respond and make sure things were getting taken care of. I would recommend Critter Control for anyone with wildlife issues!

Removed 2 possums and 2 raccoons from the yard. Initially the lady that took my call told me feces removal was part of the job. The website states feces removal is apart of the job. But after the $200 consultation and then after removing the animals ($75 apiece) they say they don’t do feces removal unless it’s in the house. At this point I was mad and looking to rate them poorly. But they’re nice and removed 4 animals successfully. Also, inter personnel communication could be better. Seems like one technician didn’t tell another an update on the plans. We were fortunate to have a camera security system set up so we knew what we were dealing with critter wise.
