Cottom’s Critter Corner

Michael Cottom Jr, Animal Removal Ohio Professional

Hi, I’m Mike Cottom Jr.

Finding critters in your home isn’t just a nuisance. It can be unsettling, confusing, and frustrating. As a wildlife removal professional, I know how troubling it can be to feel that your home has been invaded by animals, especially if you’re not sure how they got there or what it means for your family.

Bringing peace-of-mind is an important part of my work, so I always want to leave customers feeling confident and informed. It puts people at ease when I take the time to separate from fiction, explaining the problem and my plan.

I am excited to share this information with homeowners and animal removal professionals alike in a new way through Cottom’s Critter Corner. This series will be a forum for me to share the knowledge I’ve developed in my years of on-the-ground experience in wildlife removal and home restoration. You can expect posts on the biggest topics on property owners’ minds in the world of human-wildlife conflicts.
