Squirrel Control

The Crittergetter is not your typical squirrel control product. It exterminates squirrels through the use of engine exhaust from a car, truck, tractor, mower, ATV, or nearly any other type of combustion engine, diesel or gasoline. Quite plainly stated: Exhaust Kills. Your problem squirrel lives inside a burrow. That burrow is a confined space. The Crittergetter will fill that confined space with a toxic gas that will lull your squirrel to sleep painlessly and permanently... that´s the end of your squirrel problem.

The Crittergetter is the only proactive squirrel control product available. When applied properly, the burrow system of the squirrel is no match for the Crittergetter because its use of high pressure exhaust makes it singularly capable of reaching the farthest reaches of any burrow. Nearly every other product on the market relies on an action from the squirrel to be effective; the Crittergetter takes the action to these unwavering pests. Use the Crittergetter for your squirrel control needs and "bring the business" to your squirrels, before your squirrels give the business to you.

Not a squirrel? Have other critter issues in addition to squirrels? Not a problem. The Crittergetter is the lone product available where it doesn´t matter what type of critter you need to get rid of… the results are always the same; the Crittergetter turns the entire burrow into a toxic environment, regardless of the critter type.

Concerned about how the Crittergetter may affect your environment? Read The Crittergetter – An Alternative to Poison to find out how the Crittergetter works and why common fertilizers, pesticides, and pest control products are markedly more harmful to your children, your pets, and you.

Our use of engine exhaust for squirrel extermination is not a new idea. Savvy Farmers and Landowners throughout the U.S. have been successfully using engine exhaust and a far from perfected, inefficient mish-mash of incompatible parts, as an abatement technique for decades. The Crittergetter simply provides a properly constructed tool, made of the appropriately sized parts, to efficiently and effectively use this technique in one easy to use kit.

A note regarding exhaust pipe sizing:

Vehicle exhaust pipes are sized as they are for a reason. Attempting to reduce an exhaust pipe to a 3/4-inch or 5/8-inch diameter will cause excess backpressure resulting Critter Moundin valve and catalytic converter damage. If the automakers could use pipes of these smaller diameters for their exhaust systems, they would have done so long ago and saved themselves a great deal of money.

Unlike most poisons, baits, squirrel traps, and other products used for squirrel control; the Crittergetter is safe for use around both children and pets.

The ingenuity of the squirrel is wondrous, maddening, and frustrating. What seems to make the damage done by these animals worse is the intelligence displayed by them when attempting to stop them: squirrel seam to learn to avoid and overcome squirrel traps, they hide and barricade themselves away from danger, they adapt to noise, and they learn to shun baits and poisons; it's a wonder anyone is ever able to gain any sort of control over these animals. The advantage of using the Crittergetter over traps, poison baits, high powered rifles, and most other squirrel control products, is that the Crittergetter does not rely on any action from the squirrel to be effective. By delivering a fast moving, burrow-end reaching, 'non-pest specific' pressurized carbon monoxide gas, the Crittergetter, unlike many other products, is particularly effective because its quick delivery does not allow your squirrel the time to hide.


To order a Crittergetter simply follow the easy steps below.

  1. Measure your exhaust pipe.
  2. Tailpipe measurement example 1

    For this application an "Up to 3-inch" Homeowner Crittergetter or a 3" (7.6 cm) Original Crittergetter should be ordered.

    Correct way to measure an odd sized tailpipe

    This is the correct way to measure an odd shaped tailpipe. A "3-inch Plus" Homeowner Crittergetter or a 4" (10.2 cm) Original Crittergetter should be ordered.

  3. Determine the required length of your Crittergetter by measuring the distance from your vehicle to the burrow opening or mound. (For the average person, one large step equals about 3-feet.)

  4. Select a Crittergetter from our product selection below.

We have two versions of the Crittergetter: The Original and The Homeowner. The Original Crittergetter hose is constructed of very heavy gage 3-Ply Polyester Yarns, is tough enough to be driven over by a car on a rocky surface without being damaged, and was created with the intent of withstanding continuous vigorous use. For those who do not require the industrial strength and durability of the Original, we have the Homeowner Crittergetter. By forming a union between the Original Crittergetter hose and our lightweight plastic hose we can offer a product that is better suited to the majority of our users needs. Other benefits of the Homeowner Crittergetter as compared to the Original Crittergetter are as follows:

Your results using the Crittergetter and its immediate effectiveness during use will depend largely on how established your critter has become. In the situation where a burrow opening is at the end of a large burrow system persistence is the key - Reapply if necessary - Once you have eliminated a long time resident, newcomers will be much easier to control.
