Our Animal Control Experts

Group shot of Rid-A-Critter crew

We have animal control crews serving Georgia and Alabama

This page is an ongoing collection of pictures of our Animal Control technicians at work, and is dedicated to their loyalty, skill, dedication, and hard work. Our animal control crew is distributed throughought our service area.

Wildlife control is difficult, sometimes dangerous work, and it takes a special kind of professional to do it right.

Animal Control Technicians also need extensive education and in-depth knowledge of the biology and habits of every animal they work with in order to be able to catch and release it unharmed, if at all possible. They also need a high degree of physical fitness, stamina, and plain-old guts.

Finally, animal control technicians need the right equipment to do their work efficiently and safely. At Rid-A-Critter, we have everything our people need to tackle any animal control job -- no matter how big or how challenging. That, and the skill and dedication of our people, is what sets us apart from our competition.
