With squirrels and other wildlife as the most common cause of outages at public power utilities and the second leading cause of outages in the United States, Critter Guard’s pest control products can be a valuable and cost-effective solution to add to your tool belt as you are designing new buildings or upgrading existing structures.
When designing and building mission critical facilities, it is exceptionally crucial as the building architect or engineer to ensure the electricity at your client’s facility is reliable. For these facilities, even a brief, two-minute power disruption can lead to a major loss of revenue or even jeopardize the safety of the building’s occupants. One way to maintain reliable electricity at mission critical facilities is to add quality pest control solutions to the building specs. Wildlife can wreak havoc on your clients’ critical electricity systems within the building, as well as on power lines, transformers, and utility poles on or near the property. Implementing proactive pest control solutions as the facility is built can help prevent costly power outages and ensure client satisfaction.
While there are a multitude of strategies you can implement to protect your clients’ electrical equipment in the event of an outage, such as uninterruptible power supply (UPS) systems, backup generators, alternative energy sources, and regular maintenance and testing, these approaches can be ineffective in preventing power disruptions caused by wildlife from happening in the first place.
At Critter Guard, our pest control products help to drastically reduce the occurrence of outages, providing a straightforward, cost-effective solution you can offer your clients for power line protection, transformer protection, and protection for other critical electrical systems.
When designing mission critical facilities, the design and security of the building’s power supply is a crucial factor to consider. As wildlife contributes heavily to electrical equipment damage and power disruptions, it can be beneficial to have your building specs include preventative wildlife control methods for the protection of the utility poles, overhead electrical equipment, and service lines that will lead to your client’s building.
For advanced power line protection and transformer protection, consider utilizing Critter Guard’s utility Pole Guards and power Line Guards. These products are essentially barriers that are installed on utility poles and power lines to block animals from climbing onto these systems and damaging electrical equipment.

In addition to protecting electrical equipment leading to your clients’ mission critical facilities, our pest control products can also help protect your clients’ critical electrical systems within the facility. Nearby power lines are frequently utilized by rodents and other animals as pathways to access roofs of commercial buildings. Once there, these critters can quickly infiltrate the building where they can cause damage to the building’s structure and indoor electrical wiring, typically via gnawing or scratching. Our Line Guard, Pole Guard, and BirdBloc products help to prevent critters from finding their way onto roofs and into your customers’ mission critical facilities.
Our Line Guard and Pole Guard products provide a barrier around power lines and utility poles, preventing animals from climbing onto these systems and using them to access building roofs. BirdBloc can be installed to deter birds from roosting or nesting near your building by emanating a repelling scent that will drive birds away.
By implementing Critter Guard’s pest control products, building architects and engineers can help prevent various types of critters from accessing critical electrical equipment at their clients’ mission critical facilities. Check out just a few of the animals that have been successfully deterred with Critter Guard’s products.
