Creature control.. but what kind?

So you have an animal in your attic? Trapped in your fence outside? Tiny ants all over your counter? Bites from who knows what? Maybe you’ve come across a dog who comes to you needing help.. who do you call? Well, it’s all going to depend on the situation and of course which kind of creature you are dealing with. Most likely, besides calling a nearby neighbor to get their pet.. you are going to need to call animal control, wildlife control, or pest control. Let’s go over some examples and who is going to be able to help you most!

If you come across a pet, farm animal or other larger type species, it may be best to contact your local animal control service. Animal Control Officers are typically employed by your local municipalities to respond and protect the public on complaints of domesticated animals or other animals that may be a threat to public health and safety. The responsibilities of this organization include:

  • Capturing and impounding dangerous or stray animals
  • Investigating cases of animal cruelty
  • Enforcing licensing laws
  • Rescuing trapped animals

A large percentage of average issues we come across are the ones who like to linger in or near our homes. Wildlife Control services usually handle in trapping and/or removing. These are the guys you will call when you are dealing with nuisance wildlife issues in your home or on your property. Animals that are often covered include:

  • Squirrels
  • Raccoons
  • Porcupines
  • Groundhogs
  • Bats
  • Birds
  • And many other animals

Pest control companies such as ourselves are quite a bit different from the other two as our focus revolves around securing homes and businesses against infestations of insects and tiny rodents.
