Protect Your Home

Chimneys represent the single largest opening in your home. Birds, squirrels and raccoons will nest in unprotected chimneys. We can protect your home with professionally installed chimney caps.

Doors and Windows
Improperly fitted or damaged door sills provide easy entrance for mice, rats, snakes and other small critters. Gaps along windows also can allow entry and bats love to nest behind shutters. Let us find and fix these entrance points in your home.

Lawns and Gardens
Raccoons, armadillos, skunks and moles are all notorious for damaging lawns, while looking for grubs and other insects in your soil. While we can’t prevent them from doing so, we can get rid of them while they’re in the act, preventing further damage. Just be sure to call us at the first sign of damage.

Dormer and Gable Vents
These vents are favorites for bats, birds, squirrels and raccoons. Bats will rest behind the slats. Birds will build nests in them and raccoons and squirrels will simply push through the slats, through the thin screen behind them, and enter your attic. Let us secure these for you.

Bathroom / Dryer / Range Hood

Decks and Porches
Decks and porches provide protection from the elements for wildlife like raccoons, woodchucks (a.k.a groundhogs), skunks, opossums, armadillos and even cats. We can install barriers that will keep all wildlife out from under these areas.

Attic Vents
A flimsy piece of screen in most attic vents is all that stands between your attic and marauding wildlife, like squirrels and rats. Birds will build nests in these and raccoons frequently pop these right off your roof to gain access to your home. Let us protect your home from invasion with Roof Vent Guards.

The natural habitats of Boston’s area wildlife are shrinking and many of the wildlife have learned how to make themselves at home in urban and suburban areas. The need for residential animal removal is greater than ever and should always be handled by a trained wildlife professional. Sometimes a homeowner’s first instinct is to try and trap and remove a wild animal themselves. This can lead to a whole host of dangerous situations and health hazards. Critter Control of Boston has a trained team of animal removal specialists ready to step in the gap for you! If you suspect or know of any unwanted wildlife intruders, give us a call and we will come out and inspect your property. Even though squirrels are small, they can leave behind a huge mess and long list of damages if they’ve made their nest in your home. Normally, squirrels make their nests in trees in heavily wooded areas, but they are well known for finding their way into the walls or attic of your home to stay safe from storms, predators, or to raise their young. So how do you get them out? Our team at Critter Control can safely and humanely trap these furry intruders and make sure they do not return. Squirrels are not typically dangerous, but if you hear that familiar scuttle of feet in your attic or walls don’t hesitate to call us! We do more than exclude wildlife visitors from your house, we also take care of the exterior of your entire property. Have you ever woken up to find your outdoor trash cans overturned? You’re not alone! Raccoons and opossums are well known for their forays into the garbage of suburban and rural communities. Once they’ve identified a food source, you can be sure they will return. If you’ve seen a raccoon or an opossum rummaging through your leftovers, do not approach them as both of these animals can carry diseases and become aggressive if approached. Leave the animal trapping to the trained animal professionals at Critter Control. Critter Control of Boston offers a variety of animal removal services to eliminate animal problems and prevent recurring animal infestations that require professional services. Our services include species-specific animal removal techniques including one-way doors and exclusion tools. We also provide professional grade animal proofing for animal entry/exit holes and identify problem areas needing to be addressed in order to prevent any future intruders. Our animal removal services include consumer awareness and education regarding follow-up procedures to prevent the need for recurring animal removal services.
