Review by in King Of Prussia, PA
For weeks, a groundhog has been digging under my front porch. I read all I could find on line and tried to solve this problem myself. Finally, I realized that the problem was more than I could handle. I contacted Home Advisor and Critter Control responded to my request. The next day, Critter Control representative arrived at my home at the appointed time, I learned a LOT about the habits of groundhogs--and the representative worked up a very thoughtful plan of action. I am very grateful to Critter Control another knowledgeable representative for this wonderful help.

Extremely polite and prompt staff (Matt). Educated me thoroughly on racoons...a topic that I really did not want to know about (but needed to know about!). A racoon got into my crawl space. I had an evaluation of what was needed to get rid of it once and for all. Critter Control knows their stuff! I recommend! Hopefully, you never have this problem, but if you are reading this, you probably do.

Review by in Wyncote, PA
Very knowledgeable and professional. Terry explained that the snakes I had called about (and photographed) around my yard were harmless garden snakes, ate bugs and beetles, had no teeth and would move elsewhere once the food source was more or less exhausted. He also carefully went around the house to find places where snakes, bugs, birds, mice, or other critters might be able to move inside. He will be back shortly to plug those small areas up and showed me where they were. I was impressed with his knowledge and appreciated that he did not try to sell me traps to kill the harmless snakes or services I did not need.
Response by Critter Control of Philadelphia: Thank you so much for your review, we really appreciate it! Terry is the best!

The technician was knowledgeable and personable. The groundhog was trapped within a few days. It took a little longer to remove the groundhog than I would have liked but it was Easter Sunday when it was caught. I am entirely satisfied. I would call them again if another problem occurs.
Response by Critter Control of Philadelphia: Thank you so much for your review, we really appreciate it. Glad we could help!

Review by in Wayne, PA
Very disappointed in their customer service. We had them come out in 4/2018 to install something to help with our woodpecker problem on our chimney. Less than 1 year later the device fell off our roof and they refused to come out and replace it without charging us another hefty service fee. The device is cheaply made for outdoor conditions and should be able to last in the elements more than a year without having to replace it and charge customers service fees for coming out again. Despite calling them repeatedly asking them to replace the poorly made clip, they refused without charging us a service fee.
Response by Critter Control of Philadelphia: We explained that hanging a device to deter woodpeckers was temporary and because of federal migratory bird laws, it is the first step that must be taken. This streamer lasted 9 months which is actually a long time for a temporary device. This was all explained to the customer before servicing. We are very sorry she refuses to pay a nominal fee for us to send a technician out, put up an extension ladder and rehang the device but there is just too much liability on our part to do so. Most of our customers understand we can't work for free and agree to pay a service fee and we can't in good conscience not charge just because of threats to malign us on the internet.

It was an education for me having Terry remove our Black Jacket wasps. He taught me so much for my own information about these bees. Terry has helped us on other Critter Control projects I hired. And He is and was excellent in every way toward the customer and removing the unwanted pests. Thank you Terry!

Seal of Approval

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
    We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.
