They took care of my problem. They sealed up the place so the birds can't get in anymore. It remains sealed to this day, and I haven't had any problems. We were dealing with birds, and I have not had an issue with it. They sealed up where they were getting in, in the soffit of my house, which is up pretty high. They had to be on a ladder. They sealed it up, and I have had no reoccurrence of the bird problem. I'd give them an A.
It was all good. It worked out.
They did a great job.
Everything went well.
I'd give Critter Control an A- or B grade.
Critter Control was no problem. We were dealing with mice, and whatever they did worked. I went through another company, and they said Critter Control is who they recommend for critters. They're an A.
Critter Control was a long time ago. That's the guy who came by. We still had the skunk problem, but I guess it was fine. We had them out there to deal with a skunk problem. It died in an area where they couldn't get to it, but it was fine. Their customer service was fine. I'd used them before, and they were fine. The company gets an A from me.
The service was just good. They were handling a skunk problem. I haven't had any problems since then. They were an A-grade company.
We're using them today. Right now, we've had them come out for voles. We're fine with what they do. We just hired them again recently. They're pretty effective at taking care of the pest problem. They get an A.
Critter Control was very good. They were friendly and professional, and they knew the business. We were dealing with skunks, raccoons, and opossums, and they took care of them all. I'd give them an A.
