Christina Schraff

Office Supervisor

My name is Christina Schraff. I am an Office Supervisor at Critter Control of Greater Orlando and Tampa. I’ve been working here for two years. This job has taught me a lot about wildlife as well as interacting with customers and coworkers. There is never a dull day here at Critter Control. There is always something new and exciting to experience. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family and friends going to the beach, parks, and watching movies.

Jim Widows

Certified Wildlife Technician

I have been with Critter Control for 18 years and working with wildlife and pest management. Every job brings a new situation with different challenges and opportunities. Noting is more satisfying than walking away from a completed job and being thanked and complimented by the customer for returning their sense of well-being in their own home.

Michael Hallman

Certified Wildlife Technician

Being a Certified Wildlife Technician with Critter Control means a great deal. I get to help people and animals every day.  Meeting new people every day and helping them solve issues relating to wildlife is exciting and rewarding and I enjoy every minute of it.

Matt Harrison

Certified Wildlife Technician

I have been working for Critter Control for six years. It is an ever changing job that will keep you on your toes dealing with angry raccoons in an enclosed space to cobras in the strangest of places. I enjoy working with animals and resolving wildlife conflicts for our customers.  I have also worked in an exotic reptile store for eight years. I enjoy spending my free time with my wife, son and soon daughter. I’m an avid outdoorsman enjoying camping, fishing and hunting.

Critter Control has also challenged me to become a better employee and person. I enjoy hockey and Notre Dame Football.  I was born in the same city as “Rudy”, Joliet, IL.

Jennifer Lafond

I am an administrative assistant here at Critter Control of Greater Orlando and Tampa. I enjoy helping customers and challenging myself to continue in learning something new as much as possible. Critter Control has a wonderful work dynamic and is something I hope to be a part of for many years to come. When I am not working I enjoy going to the movies and spending time with my family.  I have lived in Florida for five years now and love living here, and hope to build many more memories and friendships here in the years to come.

Ryan Heider

Certified Wildlife Technician

Over the past few years of working for Critter Control, I have gained a great knowledge of many different animals and their traits.  On a daily basis the work changes as well as the customers, which is why I like my job so much.  New situations allow the day to be interesting, and ever changing.   At the end of the day there is nothing more satisfying knowing that you helped someone get there home back from any unwanted visitors. In my free time I enjoy aquarium reef keeping, fishing, and anything automotive related.
