Critter Control & Removal Services

Humane Nuisance Critter Control

When a potentially hazardous or intrusive creature encroaches too close for comfort, it transforms into a critter control challenge. Critter’s such as raccoons, rats, bats, squirrels, flying squirrels, woodchucks, voles, and other bothersome critter’s carry diseases and parasites that pose risks of transmission to humans.

If left unaddressed, these wild critter’s can swiftly inflict substantial damage to your residence, impacting areas like your attic, crawlspace, and basement. This damage may manifest as chewed wires, fire hazards, compromised and ruined insulation, holes in heating and cooling ducts, and more. Critter Bros. is here to offer nuisance critter control services to homeowners, businesses, and municipalities, allowing you to regain focus on the things that truly matter.

Critter Trapping

Critter trapping is an effective critter control strategy that’s both humane and eco-friendly for certain species. 

Trapping Nuisance Critters

Professional critter trappers know what type of trap to use, where to place them, how to bait them, and how often to check them. 

  • Raccoons: Live trapping is the most effective and humane way to remove a raccoon. Raccoon trapping requires a sturdy trap. Cage and box traps are preferable to foothold traps. 
  • Opossums: Opossums can easily be trapped with a cage, box, body-gripping, or foothold traps.
  • Skunks: Skunks can be captured with cage or box traps. 
  • Birds: Occasionally, live traps will be used, especially if flocks of birds are involved.

For some species, like bats, we are not allowed to legally trap them. Trapping is ineffective for squirrels and other species. Regardless of the critter removal strategy, exclusion services provide the only permanent solution to your critter problem. 

CritterSafe Critter Inspection

During the CritterSafe inspection, our technicians look for critter infestation signs like droppings, rub marks, and critter damage.

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

Is it a problem at all? For example, if a family of foxes makes a den in your neighborhood, will they attack your child or your pet? Educating you about the natural history of wild critter’s may help you see that they are not a threat.

Collect information. Once a critter problem has been identified, it’s necessary to positively identify the species involved, the extent of the damage, whether young critter’s are present, and what humane critter removal management procedures can be used to resolve the issue permanently.

Assess the seriousness of the problem. Important considerations include the impact on the critter’s involved, safety or health concerns for people or pets, the likelihood of recurrence and whether the critter damage appears to be seasonal or ongoing.

Get the facts and consider the options. Taking action should be your last step. Humane critter exclusion, eco-friendly critter 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 critter control solution needs to address the underlying cause of the problem to be effective over the long-term.
