Critter Guard, Inc., was founded in 2000. In late 2016, MAJRS Holdings, LLC executed an asset purchase agreement with CGI owners and took over operations. The new company operates as Critter Guard, keeping the brand identity and product design intact. We continue to serve our customers from our Columbia, MO location, as well as our new location in Wichita, KS. Our two primary products are the CG Line Guard and CG Pole Guard. Both are designed with the utility company, homeowner and preservation of wildlife in mind. The focus of our products are to deter and prevent squirrels, roof rats and other rodents from gaining access to power stations and homes where they inflict damage and cause costly power outages.
THE CRITTER GUARD STORY
In the fall of 2001, the inventor of the Critter Guard products found that squirrels were using the above-ground electrical service entrance cable to access a family member's roof and attic. The squirrels had done more than $6,500 in damage. Later, they found out insurance did not cover damage caused by rodents. They also found out squirrels and other rodents and pests not only cause residential damage, but they are the second leading cause of power outages in the US.
From our beginnings in central Missouri, Critter Guard now is the animal prevention standard of choice for thousands of homeowners and many Investor Owned Utilities, Municipal Utilities, and Rural Electric Cooperatives. Critter Guard products are precision engineered and produced in state-of-the art plastic injection molding operations with the highest attention to quality, consistency, and customer service. Feedback from our utility customers led us to various improvements over the years. But one thing is consistent -- NO ACCESS for critters!
Critter Guard has recently added an E-Commerce Shop (www.critterguard.org/shop) where customers can purchase Line Guard and Pole Guard products with the click of a button. We've opened up markets across the U.S., in Canada, Australia and across the Pacific. So what began as a humble solution to an annoying squirrel problem has developed into an international business. CRITTER GUARD products are helping utilities around the world prevent costly power outages. Is your utility using Critter Guard?
We appreciate your business, and look forward to hear from you, whether you're a homeowner or business owner trying to solve a frustrating squirrel or roof-rat problem, or a utility who knows an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure!
