Overall Rating: 8.5 / 10 (Excellent)

Although Critter Control is primarily known for removal of vertebrate wildlife species such as squirrels, bats, and rodents, the company's Eco-Wise program offers a ecologically responsible pest management program that limits the impact to your family and environment. Although the company uses natural pesticides whenever possible, they must also resort to pesticides when necessary. Focus on eco-friendly methods aside, Eco-Wise by Critter Control offers more or less standard service when compared to the pest control landscape.
