We had our first ever need for skunk removal and Lou from Critter Detectives in were better than we could have hoped. They were completely reliable and totally transparent. They arrived the same day I called to set the traps. And then, when we caught the skunks, they arrived a few hours after I called to alert them to take the animals away. In every interaction and in every way, they were professional and easy to work with. I hope we never have to use a service like this again, but if we do, I’ll glad call these guys back first.
“Our shed was home to a few critters until Lou saved the day. Thanks Critter Detectives!”
“We had a skunk in the neighborhood who sprayed our dog. We called critter detectives to find the skunk and relocate him. It took awhile to get Sam smelling normal again but the skunk was never back.”
“We had a raccoon family trying to live in our chimney. Lou came out and removed the raccoon family. He even reassured my daughter that the family was going to a new home. He came back to install a new chimney screen. That is the last I saw from those raccoons.”
