Pest squirrels are divided into three groups for classification:

While squirrels are often portrayed as harmless animals, all three groups of squirrel species pose a significant threat to your residential or commercial property. Squirrels, including fox squirrels, eastern gray squirrels, and red squirrels, do most of their damage to the exterior of the property -- digging holes in yards, stripping bark from trees, and stealing food from gardens. But squirrels will occasionally build nests in attics, crawl spaces, and eaves -- leaving scat and potentially carrying diseases like Lyme disease. 

Squirrels also enter homes by chewing holes through soffits, or fascia boards. They’ll easily squeeze through flimsy screening in roof top attic and louvre vents, and they’ll utilize existing building gaps, such as dormers or roof junctions, and chimneys. 

Under no circumstances should you approach nuisance squirrels. If you have a squirrel intrusion, it’s important to contact a professional as soon as possible. Our technicians have the tools and experience to safely and humanely remove the squirrels and repair the home to keep them out.

Nick and Mike were very informative regarding the process and objectives of placement of the cages. The office was very efficient in returning calls, and delivering messages.
Thanks so much. You guys were great. Very educational, told me what I needed to do with no upsell, came when you said you would. Responsive, professional and friendly.
Wonderful service, everyone is extremely helpful, patient and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend.
Excellent service. Critter Control was easy to contact, and straightforward about what was involved. They came out to deal with the bat issue in my home in a few days, did the work safely and followed up by removing the exit valves. All the workers were very professional at my home and were masked for the Covid issues.
Efficient, quick, professional, and friendly. Great job!
I would highly recommend Critter Control for your pest inspection, and especially their technician, named Adam.
Hi Paul arrived at appointed time. We discussed my lawn issue and agreed voles were now making themselves at home. Paul explained what needed to be done, placing bait feeders front and back. He explained how much first course would cost $489 and possible additional costs if more bait needed. Paul was very helpful and professional at all times. Great job , however it is more than we can afford at this time. THANK YOU
Thank you Chris! Arrived within time line given and resolved our problem in a professional manner. He was thorough with the inspection and removal of the critter in our chimney, and the follow up inspection of the chimney cap. Chris explained in detail what the issue was and solutions for future protection. I am very happy we contacted Critter Control for our problem and even happier they sent Chris to remedy it!
John and his team did an excellent job in removing a family of raccoons from our attic area, then removing the old insulation and replacing with new. He explained each step of the process and informed us what to expect throughout this process. He kept the communication line open and direct. We could easily reach him or the company if we had any questions. After each visit, John sent a detailed description of the work completed for that particular visit and included before and after pictures of the work. We highly recommend John and his team for any of your "critter" needs.
