Review by in Ridge, NY
very professional and I liked that he did the humane thing on getting rid of mother squirrel and baby. was even willing to come on easter. we were able to get the squirrel out in less than 24 hours after he set the trap. came back and took them away. he said he would come back to clean and cover up hole in our camper. very nice guy.

Review by in Bethpage, NY
I found a dead possum under my deck. I called one place - they quoted me $350. I call Pesky Critter and left a message. Within 10 minutes Mark called me back - scheduled an appt for the next morning. He was right on time and 15 minutes later the possum was removed and the area cleaned and disinfected. Said should I smell anything when the weather warms up to give him a call and he will come back and disinfect again. The cost? A fraction of what that other place wanted. I would highly recommend him and call him immediately if I ever need his help again!

Review by in West Babylon, NY
Mark was able to get rid of the raccoon family nesting in my attic. He caught the three baby raccoons but the mother got away. He also patched up my lawn from damage by the mother raccoon. Overall he did an excellent job, and I would highly recommend him.

Project: Control or Eliminate Small Animals
The guy came out right away which was outstanding. However I had to keep calling and the job wasn't completed. I still have traps up in my place and they closed the job, even after I called and said there are still critters out there with your traps. Follow up is lacking. The guy is very nice and respectful but very busy.

Mark is very attentive, responsive, and explains in full detail what your options are. He is honest about your needs and takes into account your specific situation. I highly recommend Pesky Critter and would not hesitate to call him again. For background, my situation was a squirrel nest under the solar panels. The squirrel and nest were removed and the area was sanitized.

Mark did an excellent and thorough job. He explained everything and made sure there were no other entry points for the racoon. His service was better than I had expected.
