Bill B.

Pest Control Services

Rick was great. He solved our squirrel problem in a few short days. He really knows animals. He loves the critters and treats them humanly. His fees are very fair. I will not hire anyone else for animal control and I fell like I made a friend. I like Rick.
Rick's Animal Control's reply
Thank you Bill, and yes I would consider you a friend as well. Not being a large company allows me to offer a more personal touch to jobs. Developing trust and confidence in the customers mind is essential and explaining everything in clear understandable terms allows the client to better grasp the situation and I simply loved watching your sons face light up! God bless you sir and your wonderful family.

Rodent and Animal Removal

I had Rick come out to get rid of an aggressive red squirrel. He came out that same day, set traps, and caught the squirrel all within a matter of hours. He seemed very knowledgeable of wild critters. I would definitely call again.
Rick's Animal Control's reply
Thank you very much for your kind words Carol. I do my very best to respond quickly even on weekends and holidays st no extra charge. Understanding each individual species takes the guess work out of the way and the problem can then be solved very quickly. Blessings!

Rick assessed our problem we were having with bats and told us how to go about making them leave our property and find some where else to go .He also gave us an estimate for what he would do the job for.

Rick was very reassuring and explained what could be done for the problem. Thank you for coming out on time and all the follow-up.
Rick's Animal Control's reply
Thank you very much Ginny! Often male raccoons will break in but not stay long like a female making her nest. Sealing the vent with heavier gage metal should keep them out. Blessings to you.
