With our headquarters located in Mulvane, KS, Critter Guard is a humane wildlife control product developer specializing in protecting electric power and communication lines, transformers, switches, and substations for utility companies and homeowners across the United States and international markets. Animal related power outages cost billions of dollars in damages each year in the United States and are one of the most common causes of power outages globally.
As a result, we created products specifically designed to humanely deter squirrels and other animals from accessing electric power and data communication lines, substations, and transformers resulting in reduced loss of life for animals while keeping power and communications flowing safely.
We have three core products that are available for purchase by utility companies, homeowners, and businesses who are trying to deter various critters from gaining access to and subsequently damaging critical equipment.
Line Guard acts as a barrier to stop animals such squirrels, rats, rodents, snakes, sloths, and even monkeys, from traversing electric powerlines and data lines and gaining access to live switches, transformers, and substations. Additionally, Line Guard is a great deterrent to squirrels and rodents getting into a homeowner’s attic and causing additional damage to their property, as well as possible power outages.

Acting as a barrier to prevent animals from gaining access to power lines and substations via utility power poles, Pole Guard is a popular product for deterring squirrels and other animals for power companies as well as the homeowner. While not interfering with routine powerline maintenance, Pole Guard prevents animals from climbing the pole and getting access to the pole-mounted equipment, such as transformers and connectors, and ultimately the electric powerlines, substations, and other critical power equipment.

A simple, humane bird repellent solution, BirdBloc protects critical utility equipment, substations, warehouses, and other at-risk areas from bird-related damage. A different type of bird deterrent, BirdBloc capitalizes on birds’ developed sense of smell and emits a bird repelling smell to discourage birds from nesting or roosting in the area where BirdBloc is deployed.
