Welcome to Rid My Critters.
After working as a pest control business operator for over 18 years, I “retired” from the industry and now spend time running this website and offering consultation on the side. I’m a certified entomologist and pest control consultant and a member of the National Pest Management Association.
All that to say that I’ve run into quite a few critters over the years, some welcome and some not. From fleas and bed bugs to cats, racoons, and even mountain lions, at some point I’ve either had to deal with them or worked with professionals who have.
Most sites will just tell you how to kill pests, but with more and more critters being protected by law or proving beneficial to the environment, I wanted to create something different. Not only will I tell you how to get rid of the critters you don’t want, but also how to keep those critters you might benefit from.
Of course, this site will never be complete, so if you have questions or need help with a specific critter issue, please feel free to use the contact form to get in touch. If you own a business and are interested in pest consulting services, please see this page for more information.
