Although the rodents, squirrels, foxes, and raccoons that invade your home should certainly be considered pests, there’s a distinct difference between Shumaker’s Animal Control and a pest exterminator. We’d like to briefly outline the difference.
The pests that exterminators handle are typically insects. These include termites, fleas, and bed bugs. Their method for dealing with these pests is to kill them.
As an animal control company, we concern ourselves with larger animals, typically mammals although snakes are also part of the business. We try not kill these pests, but rather trap them and relocate them to a place from which they won’t return. We also repair the damage they cause so other pests can’t enter.
If you believe you have animals living in your walls, attic, or crawlspace, contact us. We can eliminate the problem without harming the animal making it the best solution for everyone.
