Protect Power Lines and Substations with Critter Guard's Line Guard and Pole Guard

Located in Columbia, MO, 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 outages internationally. With this in mind, we created products specifically designed to humanely deter squirrels and other animals (i.e., critters) from accessing electric power and data communication lines, substations, and transformers resulting in reduced loss of life for animals while keeping power and/or information flowing safely.

Critter Guard’s Pole Guard

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, (or communication lines), substations, and other critical power equipment.
