In the early 1980s, a Detroit chimney sweep named Kevin Clark got a call to remove a raccoon from a chimney. Apparently, the caller was unable to find a single animal control person to help remove the critter, so he was the closest thing. This gave Clark the signal that there was likely a largely untapped market he could serve.
Over the years, Kevin Clark and ‘Clark’s Critter Control’ kept growing, first from the Detroit area and then across the country. A few short years later they were franchising and opening a new office about once a month, quickly becoming America’s top animal control company. Now, renamed to simply Critter Control, this company is franchised here in the Triad of North Carolina and has over 30 years of experience in serving people’s emergency animal control needs.
The Piedmont Triad Critter Control franchise is professionally trained by the nation’s leading brand to provide top-notch service to the area’s residents. Whether you live in Greensboro, Winston-Salem, High Point, Burlington or anywhere in the greater Triad area, we are a quick phone call away.
