You may hear the words thrown around a lot, but what exactly is the difference between animal control and pest control?
Baltimore is known for having deer on the highway and even foxes can make homes in densely populated areas, so pest control and animal control services are in high demand. Shumaker Animal Control wants to take the time to make sure you know the difference between the two.
Pest Control Services
While foxes, raccoons, rodents and squirrels may certainly seem like pests, you wouldn’t call pest control for wildlife removal. A pest control company will mainly deal with fleas, termites, bed bugs and other insects that have either formed nests or overrun your home. These pests aren’t going to be set free in the outdoors. A pest control company will destroy the insects and the home of the insects to ensure that the insects cannot breed inside your home any further then they already have.
Wildlife Removal in Baltimore
Shumaker Animal Control focuses on removing larger animals. While these animals are typically mammals, Shumaker has also removed our fair share of snakes that were unwanted guests. Our goal is not to kill the animal, but to trap them and relocate them to an area far enough away that they won’t be in close proximity to your home and try to return. We also repair any damage that your animal intruder may have caused to make sure that additional wildlife won’t have easy access into your home.
Stray Pet Removal in Baltimore
You may feel bad for the stray cat you see wandering your neighborhood and decide that providing the cat a little food isn’t going to hurt anything. Soon, you may find yourself over run with stray cats. Stray cats aren’t considered wildlife, so they can be rehabilitees and find homes. Instead of trying to take care of all these cats yourself, it’s actually much safer and better for the animals if you call animal control to collect them and work with adoption services.
