A dangerous or bothersome animal that comes too close for comfort becomes a wildlife control problem. Animals like raccoons, rats, bats, squirrels and other wildlife carry diseases and parasites that can be transmitted to humans. Left unattended, wild animals also can quickly cause a great deal of damage to your home, including damage to your attic, crawlspace and basement resulting in chewed wires, fires, matted and damaged insulation, holes in heating and cooling ducts and more. Critter Control provides nuisance wildlife control services to homeowners, businesses and municipalities, so you can get back to the things that matter.

The Humane Wild Animal Control Solution

Critter Control has introduced CritterSafe, the most humane animal removal alternative for residential and commercial property owners. Our CritterSafe exclusion, no-trap wildlife removal and on-site release wildlife services use humane wildlife handling techniques that go the extra mile to protect wild animals. These include:
 

  • non-lethal animal removalNo domestic animal calls please
  • no-trap animal control
  • wildlife release on-site
  • one-way doors to minimize stress

We offer a complete home inspection and detection service to identify potential wildlife entry points and prevent opportunistic animals from damaging your home or business in the future.

CritterSafe Services

  • Humane animal handling, safe harborage, and reuniting of offspring with parents/siblings
  • The use of eco-friendly animal repellents and deterrent techniques to discourage return

  • Consumer awareness and education regarding follow-up procedures

CritterSafe Options

CritterSafe considers the following in helping you resolve wildlife conflicts safely and humanely:

Is it a problem at all? For example, if a family of fox makes a den in your neighborhood, will they attack your child or your pet? Educating you about the natural history of wild animals may help you see that they are not a threat.
 
Collect information. Once a wildlife problem has been identified, it’s necessary to positively identify the species involved, the extent of the damage, whether young animals are present, and what humane animal removal management procedures can be used to resolve the issue permanently.
 
Assess the seriousness of the problem. Important considerations include the impact on the animals involved, safety or health concerns to people or pets, likelihood of recurrence and whether the animal damage appears to be seasonal or ongoing.
 
Get the facts and consider the options. Taking action should be your last step. Humane wildlife exclusion, eco-friendly animal repellents, changing human cultural practices, and habitat modification are all viable, humane strategies.
 
Will the action solve the problem or merely address the symptoms? The humane wildlife control solution needs to address the underlying cause of the problem to be effective over the long-term.
 
Since 1983 the Critter Control concept has called for humane animal control and environmentally responsible techniques when taking care of nuisance animal problems, including wildlife control, animal removal, animal damage repair, animal exclusion and pest control prevention services. We use innovative, integrated methods to provide ecologically sound animal control services for homeowners, businesses and municipalities.
.
Appreciating wildlife and the natural environment we share is one of the first steps in resolving wildlife conflicts with humans. Tolerance and understanding solve many perceived “wildlife problems” borne from irrational fears. Bats and snakes, for example, are beneficial to the environment, but are rarely a danger to humans. While there are times when we can let nature take care of itself, sometimes wildlife conflicts must be resolved to prevent further damage to our homes and property, and to protect human health and safety.
 
Critter Control’s certified wildlife specialists have the training and experience to quickly identify the wild animal causing the problem. We work with you to develop a plan remove the nuisance animal, prevent future animal infestation, and repair animal damage. We back it up with our animal exclusion guarantee – “Our Repairs Keep Animals Out!”

Excellent customer service! Last week we realized a family of cute birds were nesting in our roof soffit. The nest was right above our deck, and they were getting aggressive with our dogs and us. A super friendly service coordinator answered the phone right away. She was able to get us scheduled for the next day. The tech showed up on time, in a freak April snowstorm! He quickly addressed the issue, thoroughly explained what he did and when he would be back. He showed up right on time again, made sure our squatting birds were gone for good and completed the permanent fix where they were accessing the soffit. Probably one of the easiest service calls we’ve ever had! Thank you!

We had a nuisance woodpecker driving us insane drumming on the metal chimney cap. We called Brittni and she provided detailed information over the phone as to estimated costs and methods used. She promptly followed up everything with a detailed email. Scheduling was easy. Terrance was on-time and very pleasant to work with. He inspected the chimney for damage and for evidence of nests = none found! He installed two deterrents and wa on his way! Highly recommend!
