Matt was great. Came over and immediately figured out where the squirrel was stuck in the chimney. He then set a solid trap and the squirrel was caught within 5 hours. I put the trap outside, Matt came to pick it up the next day, and it was on its way. Highly recommend.

Critter Control of Greater Boston is THE BEST! A skunk made its way into my basement in Dorchester and trapped itself in. Matt R was my Wildlife Specialist and he took care of the problem in no time at all! He was polite, respectful, EXTREMELY knowledgeable, and a true professional in his expertise of wildlife control and prevention. The skunk didn't stand a chance! Thanks again Critter Control of Greater Boston and Matt R!!

They responded quickly. Matt immediately determined what was making noise in my wall (squirrels) and saw where they were getting in. Also looked all around my house for other potential problems. No deposit required. I wasn't billed until Matt determined that all the squirrels were gone, and the entry place was sealed. Problem solved quickly and easily.

Called for help with a squirrel nest under solar panels. The squirrel had chewed the wires and the solar panel company had to replace the equipment. Matt and Critter Control were SUPER responsive and worked with me to schedule a time to install squirrel guards immediately after the solar panels were reinstalled. Fantastic company!

Very happy with Critter Control and Matt's friendly and professional service. They insisted that he do an estimate during daylight so he could examine my house thoroughly and take pictures up on my roof. (The other two companies I called offered call times after dark. Hmm.) The office and Matt were consistently communicative all the way through ~ daily update emails of the process, etc. I'd call them again without hesitation. You should, too!

I recently used Critter Control to solve a problem of squirrels nesting in my attic.  Critter Control responded immediately with an inspection, estimate of cost and a solution.  Work started within two days of acceptance of the plan.  A number of squirrels were caught and removed.  Entry hole was secured and all is well.  Employees of Critter Control were professional and thorough answering any questions I had throughout the process,  I highly recommend Critter Control to any individual suspecting a rodent problem.

We called Critter Control to come check what we had in our attic that was chewing and running around.  They were able to get us in the schedule quickly and took care of what ended up being squirrels in the attic.  They trapped and removed all of them and sealed up the hole fairly quickly.  We are so thankful for Critter Control and will highly recommend them to all our friends and neighbors.

We were very pleased with Critter Control when they came out to inspect our property after we saw a bat in our basement. They were extremely thorough and professional; the technician wore shoe covers, spent a long time inspecting our attic and roof to make sure we didn't have additional bats, and quickly covered the place where he thought the bat got in and out.

Everyone we dealt with at Critter Control was knowledgeable, courteous and helpful. I'd highly recommend them.

 For weeks I had called around to contractors trying to have them close a 10x12 hole in the soffit of my house. Either they didn't call back or gave me what I thought was a very high estimate! Then I thought, what if squirrels had gotten in? How would they get out if the hole was closed up and who would remove them if they died Grinning face with smiling eyes
 Enter Critter Control! They were one stop shopping!! Christine told me what to expect and emailed me the procedures and the estimate. We set the appointment date and the job proceeded without a glitch. 
 Mike arrived on time which was important for my busy schedule. He was very knowledgeable, checked the house for points of entry and took the time to answer my questions. He was thorough and kept me informed of the progress by leaving printed notes so he could communicate and I didn't have to be there! In a matter of days the problem was solved! The squirrels were gone and the hole was closed up!
 Mike was very professional but also personable. At our first meeting he explained how he would close up the hole so the squirrels wouldn't get back in the house. This gave me peace of mind and I know if I have another problem, Mike will be there to fix it. 
 I would highly recommend Critter Control to my friends and neighbors and give it a 5 star rating!!

Very pleased with the service we received great experience from the initial phone call to the service performed. Had some birds in our soffit due to a vent cover which had fallen off, tech was able to remove a nest which thankfully didn't have any eggs , and replace cover as well as 2 other vents. Fair pricing and a one year guarantee, can't go wrong with that!  Would definitely recommend this company!

Ben kept me informed after daily visits - we had squirrels and birds on our roof trying to move in. After a week, our home was clear of critters. Ben and his crew removed birds nest, patched up squirrel damage and now we no longer hear critter construction/destruction under our roof. Critter Control of Boston is dedicated to getting the job done. Working with Ben and Christine was a pleasure.

We were extremely pleased with the professional sevice we received from Critter Control.  Their explanation of the service they were providing us was thorough and they completed the job in one day, even though they explained it might take up to 5 days to capture the woodchuck who lived in our yard and devastated our garden and other foliage plants.  During the time their traps were in our yard, we had to call with questions and Mike, our field service manager, was extremely responsive returning our calls in a timely manner.  We will definitely use Critter Control again if the need arises and will recommend the company to others.

I don’t typically write reviews, but feel an exception is warranted for Critter Control of Boston.

What a superior service !  This company is top shelf customer service oriented:  quick response time, very professional, keeps the customer well informed, knows the business inside and out, and does an outstanding job of removing unwanted ‘critters.’  I highly recommend this company and was 110% satisfied, as I feel they go above and beyond most every service industry with their courtesy and customer satisfaction focus.  Not only will they SOLVE your problem, they will go out of their way to make sure you are completely satisfied.  They have a great knack for making you feel like you’re their #1 customer – which is a nice touch!

Want to take this opportunity to thank you, and let you know that Mike is an excellent technician.  He is quite skilled, very knowledgeable and was really great to work with.

You should know that he represents your company very, very well.  The testimonial above includes all my interactions with the staff at Critter Control (mostly Christy and Mike) – but thought you should know these two individuals are the best – hands down!

Critter Control is great! They came out to the house promptly and on time. The Field Service Manager walked around the outside of my house with me and showed me all the places where we had holes in the foundation. He also recommended a chimney cap and vent grids to keep out uninvited critters. No hard sell. The workman who came out and did the job was excellent. I would recommend this company to my neighbors! I also felt the price was very reasonable.

Critter Control came out on Monday because we had had a bat in the house the previous Thursday, (we were able to get him outside). Ben was friendly and knowledgeable and told us that we had more than one bat living in the dormers. We're signed up to have them do a complete bat expulsion, but Ben told us that in the meantime, if we saw another one at any hour, to call and they'd come out to capture it and test it for rabies. Wouldn't you know, Tuesday night, another got through the a./c vent around 12:30 am. We called, and in about 25 minutes, another nice guy was at our door. Within ten minutes he'd captured it and taken it away, and we were informed that it tested negative for rabies the next afternoon. The main job isn't finished yet but given the excellent service we've received so far, I'm very optimistic.

Critter Control were the most responsive to our situation and very professional. My wife, my 6-year old son, and I looked forward to seeing the daily 'activity' reports stuck to our storm door and cheered when we saw you caught the rascally squirrel! My dog even knew something was going on because he couldn't wait to go outside and sniff around under the traps. The repair workto the soffits was extremely well done. All in all, a perfect job!

These guys were great.  For their 'squirrel package', they do an assessment and set traps and check them every day.  Once the traps are empty for a few days, they patch up the holes to prevent squirrels from returning.  It only took about 3-4 days to trap all the squirrels and then another day to patch up.  They even came back after it looked as though a different squirrel tried to get back in (but didn't) and they patched that spot up again too and no issues since.  Given that all the visits, trapping and removal are included in the price, it's a very good deal (plus Angie's List discount).  The patching of the holes were about $75 each I think on top of that (2 holes) so overall, a great deal and great work.  Definitely would use them again if I had to (but hope not to).

I actually called Critter Control before purchasing the deal to clarify a couple of questions, and the Office Manager was great and helped me get everything squared away. Within a couple of days of purchasing the deal, Ben visited my house and did a thorough interior/exterior look on the property and recommended additional work (permanent steel grates to go over my plastic/aluminum roof vents) to keep the squirrels at bay permanently.

The first worker arrived the next day and installed five traps on my roof and seven roof grates, and then came once the next day to remove the squirrels (all traps were filled). He came once more the next day and, seeing that there weren't any squirrels left, called me to tell me that the work was basically done. They came the next day to remove the traps and leave behind the grates I had purchased.

I'm all in at $915: $600 for the AngiesList deal, and $350 (less 10% AngiesList discount) for the permanently installed vent grates. The price seems high at first glance but it's right in line with competitors and, honestly, the service was top-notch. I'd say "would do this again!" but I'm hoping my neighborhood grey squirrels don't make their way into my attic again. (If they do, I'm assured that CC will come back at any point in the next two years for a service call, free of charge.)

Critter Control did a highly professional job removing a large family of red squirrels from a crawl space in my house last summer. They were friendly, informative, and effective. Then, this winter, you sent out an email offering services to clear snow and ice from the roof. This was a godsend to us to to two of our neighbors. Friendly, efficient, reasonably priced, hard working, competent! Thanks. We didn’t have water coming in yet, but I think you saved us from a lot of damage. That was a great thing to do, to contact customers and offer this service. And my neighbors were really happy, too.

Dan Master of Critter Control was the only one who replied to my panicked calls when water soaked into the wall and started dripping off the window sill in one of our rooms. He sent Ben to us, his last job the Saturday before the storm of Feb 14-15. Ben worked hard in the growing dark and beginning snow to relieve the huge ice dam over the affected room. A quick return of a second call set up a plan to take care of the rest of the roof. I have to say this is a great seasonal transfer of skills they have!

We have had Squirrels in our attic for years. I really was not satisfied with other pest control solutions. They were either too costly or too dangerous.  Critter Control came,  inspected and told me immediately where the holes were and exactly what they would do before I signed their contract. They came every day and checked the set traps and access holes until activity stopped.  They also helped me with the mice which they freely included. They were pleasant,  efficient and professional  and I recommend them highly.

“My husband was out of the country when I heard noises in the kitchen ceiling.  It was very creepy and I had visions of critters dropping from the ceiling and coming face to face with me; and of course I would be frozen in place.  As soon as someone referenced Critter Control to me, I immediately called and spoke to them.  They were out the next morning and nicely accommodated my work schedule.  They explained their process in great detail with price estimates and then immediately set to work assessing the "hole" situation.  It had snowed perhaps the day before and was frigid cold but they were up on the roof, balconies, etc.  I can not say enough good things about their work.

I have become frustrated lately with trying to find various house supports and have been told quotes would be forthcoming, people would come to assess, etc.  With Critter Control, everything they promised or said, they did; and they were pleasant to deal with. I highly recommend them.”
