I used to love seeing squirrels come up and nibble on the feed I'd put out in our bird feeder. Well, let's just say I didn't love seeing them as much when I went up into my attic after hearing some scratching around up there. Turns out I was fully infested and they were everywhere. Trent was amazing and walked me through every process explaining it all before taking action. I couldn't have asked for a better, more personalized experience. He gave me his cell number and was always professional and polite through the entire process. Thanks to Trent and the whole Dr. Critter team.

Oak Hill is a city in Volusia County, Florida, United States. The population was 1,792 at the 2010 census.
The first inhabitants of what would become Oak Hill were the Timucuan Indians, who lived along the shore from circa 2000 BC to 1500 AD, when European settlers started to arrive. In 1564, the French illustrator, Jacques LeMoyne, made a map showing an Indian village named Surruque el Viejo near el Baradero de Suroc. The name "Oak Hill" seems to have been first used by seasonal northern loggers circa 1850.
Florida became a state in 1845, and British and American permanent settlers started to arrive. They began to displace the various tribes, including the Seminoles, who fought back. One Seminole War raid in 1856 resulted in four deaths. A resident, Arad Shelton, took their bodies north to New Smyrna Beach by wagon.
By the Civil War, Oak Hill had a salt works, some part-time stores, and the first orange groves had been planted (by a Mr. Mitchell). Oak Hill also has Civil War veterans buried in the local cemetery: five who fought for the Union, and six who fought for the Confederacy.
