Once you’ve found critters in your home or attic, our first job as animal control specialists is to figure out how the critters got there in the first place.  We will come to your home to do a full examination of entry points and damage, then based on your situation we will give you a quote for the project.


Once the quote is approved, the second step is to get rid of the unwanted pests.  We do this by trapping all of the critters and closing all entry points that the critters are using to enter your home.  All of our removal techniques are humane and eco friendly.


Our work isn’t over once we’ve initially removed the critters and patched up the entry points.  We will continue to come to your home and remove additional trapped critters until they are completely gone! And, under our industry leading 2 year warranty, you can rest easy knowing that Critter Ridder is there for you should those annoying pests show up again!
