Raptors (birds of prey) such as eagles, hawks, falcons, owls and osprey captivate us with their power and grace.Raptor Protection

Raptor electrocution continues to be one of the major wildlife concerns of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Electric Companies and Utilities around the country. Electrocutions occur when the raptor contacts energized phase-to-phase or phase-to-ground conductors at once.

Raptors are protected by several laws that include the Endangered Species Act, the Eagle Protection Act and Migratory Bird Treaty Act.

Critter Guard Inc, has developed a raptor protection measure. It is called the Critter Line Guard. Some call it the ‘Raptor Protection' Line Guard.

Why You Should Install Critter Line Guards to protect Raptors:

  • Wildlife Preservation
  • Corporate Responsibility
  • Lower Liability Risk
  • Improved Corporate Relations
  • Increased System Reliability
  • Reduced Operations and Maintenance Costs
  • Reduce pressures on Utilities from Regulatory Requirements
