Franchise Business Review


30 Years Ago Clarks' Critter Control was born. Five years later Critter Control, Inc. was incorporated and began franchising the concept in 1987. Wildlife damage complaints in urban areas were increasing all across the United States, and the company added an average of one new office a month over the next decade.

In 2009, Critter Control expanded into environmentally friendly pest management services, with alternatives to traditional chemical applications. Critter Control was one of the first companies in the U.S. to offer Integrated Pest Management (IPM), which includes a variety of ecologically responsible pest management services, products and methods that help to control general insect pests... while also addressing concerns about the environment.
