Critter Guard offers superior power line, utility pole, and transformer protection with wildlife control products. Read below to learn more about Critter Guard’s Line Guard for power lines, Critter Guard’s Pole Guard, and their BirdBloc products.


Critter Guard Line Guard

Animals such as snakes, squirrels, and other rodents often use overhead power lines to get from place to place in search of food and shelter, damaging equipment and causing power outages in the process. With free-spinning wheels that act as jump barriers on each end and five independently-spinning rollers that critters cannot hang onto, Critter Guard’s Line Guard product prevents these animals from traversing power lines and other overhead electrical equipment.

Critter Guard Pole Guard

Animals will often climb up trees and utility poles to access and travel across power lines. Critter Guard’s Pole Guard product is designed to fit around wooden, steel, and concrete utility poles, as well as some trees, serving as a barrier that critters cannot surpass. This not only prevents power outages, but it also helps in improving the longevity of your utility poles.


Birds can wreak havoc on your property, potentially causing corrosion, short circuits, and damage to wooden utility poles and other structures. Critter Guard’s BirdBloc product capitalizes on birds’ developed sense of smell by emitting a repelling smell that deters birds from roosting or nesting wherever BirdBloc is deployed.
