Wildlife Removal Competitors

Competition is divided into four main categories:

  1. Traditional pest control companies deal primarily with insects and some rodents. Most do not have the tools, equipment, time, or knowledge to deal with large vertebrate animals.
  2. There are thousands of individual nusiance animal control trappers in Canada. They might not have the licenses, training, insurance, or permits ncessary to provide full-service wildlife control to the public.
  3. Municpal animal control officers primarily deal with dogs and cats.
  4. Government wildlife damage control consists primarily of people who handle agricultural damage complaints.

Franchise Owners Testimonials

Starting a business whether it be from your own concept or buying into an established franchise can be a scary endeavor. More often the successful individuals have a thorough knowledge of the journey they are about to embark upon. As for myself and purchasing a Critter Control franchise, I had no experience in wildlife or pest control. While to most this would seem like a foolish idea, JC Canty on the other hand saw and understood while my background may be quite different there were essential qualities that would lend well to owning a territory in this franchise. He not only explained the business on our first meeting to a point that for the next several months I could find no other franchise that I was more excited about potentially buying into. He also worked with me through the entire processes of getting the adequate funding, proper licensure, and putting me in contact with a multitude of resources to make this dream a reality. If you are considering owning a business in your future no matter your background or experience I would highly recommend speaking to JC to find out if Critter Control may be the right fit for your future.

Devin Mann, Franchise Owner

I spent 18 years with Critter Control before selling my franchise and I can’t say enough good about the experience. I love the outdoors and wildlife, so the work was very rewarding for me.
