SNL brings Critter Control to the board room.

| October 29, 2013

TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. – Critter Control comments on a Saturday Night Live comedy skit where a pest management professional is called to a board room to deal with a smell coming from the air duct.

“It was flattering to see the ‘Critter Control’ skit on the latest Saturday Night Live (10-26-13)," says Critter Control founder and CEO Kevin Clark. "Hilarious...we hope the use of our Critter Control brand by SNL helps launch successful careers in comedy and/or wildlife management.” 

But now Critter Control takes aim at SNL. “We feel spoofed by the SNL mockery of our profession and we are demanding; 1) the safe return of all the opossums used in the skit, 2) ten road-killed fur pelts, 3) a fifth of Wild Turkey, and 4) the remains of the two Critter Control imposters who were eaten by the opossums to ensure the opossums were treated and fed in a humane manner,” quipped Sherry White, Critter Control’s Social Media Director.

Critter Control produced its own skit....not as funny, but informative.Check it out at: http://www.crittercontrol.com/video/crittercontrolfeaturedinnationalenvironmentalreportwithhughdowns.html
