Squirrels in the Attic: Harmless Nuisance or Dangerous Vermin

squirrel in the woods

Despite the trouble they cause, a lot of people still see squirrels as cute, fluffy animals. People even leave food out for squirrels and watch them eat with their cute little paws. On the other hand, others seem to get raging mad, sometimes wielding pellet guns at squirrels who steal from bird feeders or create messes around the house. Whether you think they're cute or a menace, squirrel activity inside your home can be a problem. Squirrels build little nests outside, but eventually, they begin looking for warmer places inside to cozy up, and your attic will seem like a comfy, toasty option.

MAJRS Holdings, LLC (d/b/a Critter Guard) Purchases Critter Guard, Inc.

Hi everyone. Critter Guard, Inc. (CGI) was founded in the year 2000 and has steadily increased it’s credibility and presence in both the residential market as well as the utility market. Due to some health concerns and their advancing age, the original CGI owners began to look for buyers of the company. That’s where MAJRS Holdings, LLC comes in. I had known one of the owners of CGI for many years. But I only had a passing knowledge of what the business was. Anyway, to make a long story short, MAJRS Holdings, LLC established a ficticious name registration with the State of Missouri to operate as Critter Guard (the new company is no longer called Critter Guard, Inc.). The actual purchase was done as an Asset Purchase Agreement, rather than a stock/share purchase agreement. Effective December 23, 2016, Critter Guard, Inc. ceased doing business and has since been formally dissolved. Critter Guard continues the same great products, distribution channels, customer service, quality, and passion for keeping those critters out of your equipment (or roof/attic)!
