Pest Control in NJ

If you have watched cockroaches crisscross your kitchen or spiders create cobwebs in your living rooms, you know that cohabiting with the pests is not a good option. Pests can do great damage to your property, make you incredibly uncomfortable, and cause health problems for your family.
The quickest method seems to be rushing to the nearest hardware store, purchasing some chemicals, and raining hell on your pests. However, this may not be the best way to get rid of the pests. 

It is advisable to call a professional exterminator to handle your Pest Control in NJ. 

Here are the reasons why.

Have You Identified the Pests Correctly?


Most people cannot effectively identify most of their pests. Without the right knowledge, they end buying pest control products that are less effective on the pests. It is a waste of money and time with no results to show for it. An exterminator will correctly identify all the pests that may be in your home by their dead bodies, droppings, and kind of damage caused. Your Pest Control in NJ expert could find that more than one pest that could be causing you problems.

Your health and safety

Most fumigants are made of highly poisonous chemical components and should be handled with care.
If you are not careful enough, you could end up poisoning your water or food, and cause even bigger problems than the pests could be themselves. Moreover, few people own the right gear to fumigate their homes. The professional exterminators have the right equipment to control the pests effectively while making sure that your water and food do not get contaminated.

You may not uncover other all the breeding grounds

There is nothing as hair-pullingly frustrating as witnessing a second infestation soon after dealing with a first. This might happen to you if you have not uncovered all the areas where the pests hide. The professional exterminator has deep knowledge of the breeding habits of the pests. Thus, he uncovers every single place where they hide and destroy them, their nests and their eggs so that they won't come back.

Best pest control methods

Use of the chemicals at the hardware store may not be the best way to deal with the pests. There could be better ways to reduce their chances of returning to your home. A professional fumigator looks at the most effective way to deal with the menace. He or she also advises you on ways to prevent a similar infestation in the future such as by sealing cracks, clearing vegetation, and so much more.

Protecting your home and family from pests is not a DIY job. Pest Control in NJ should be left to the professionals.

Mice Control in NJ 
Before the exterminator poisons and kills the mice, he searches for possible areas at home where the mice could be hiding. It is important that all the feeding sites and points of entry into the house be identified and eliminated. Otherwise, the same locations will attract other rodents after the current lot has been eliminated.

You are advised to put all your food in tightly closed containers mainly made of glass or metal. You should also dispose and destroy any trashcans at home. Other sources of food such as dirty sinks, kitchen floors, and counter tops must be cleaned. 

The exterminators use a variety of techniques to get rid of the mice. They range from trap glue, physical traps, and baits. The choice of the method that the exterminator will use depends on if there are pets and small children, the possible hideouts of the mice and the level of the rodent infestation at home. Two or more methods can be combined for effectiveness

Reputable exterminators also dispose of the mice once they have been caught or killed. A thorough inspection is also done to ensure that there are no mice left in the hideouts.

Once this is done all the holes, cracks and crevices are sealed with concrete, sealants, or steel. Similarly, any open areas around the gas lines, water and sewerage pipes, and air conditioning vents are also sealed. This prevents easy entry of other groups of mice in the future.  

You are advised to clear any bushes that are near the house and dig compost pits several meters from the house.

Animal Control In NJ

Tired of all those stray dogs and cats populating your local area? Want to have those stray kittens immediately taken care of? Wish to search for a shelter for the abandoned puppies? Have you noticed an animal without the liberty to enjoy the basic needs to survive?

If you care for all those animals that you see trapped, abandoned, ill or crying on the roads, you can join the team of Animal Control services. No, we don’t expect you to work in the team; we simply expect you to call a proper Animal Control service company and have the animals taken care of.

An Animal Control service is a department or office that takes the responsibility of controlling the animals. Along with controlling, this office is also responsible for the disposition of the animals.

The major question is – what to look for while choosing Animal Control in NJ? Today, we at ALCO NJ Animal & Pest Control would like to help to answer this question.

Animal Control In NJ 
The first thing that you need to search for is a company that doesn’t harm the animals. In the past, there have been several cases in which the Animal Control service companies have harmed the stray animals. If you care for your pawed friends, you need a company that would take care of the animals and not hurt them in any manner. We have only ever used humane methods when we arrive at the scene of an unwanted animal.

The second thing to look for is the location of the company. You can’t expect a team from another state or city to drop into your location and take care of the animals you care for. You need to find a company that is local. We happen to be located in Bloomfield, New Jersey, if you’re in the area you can connect with our executives that represent the department and find out how soon a team can be arranged for the animals that need your help. Remember – sooner the better is the mantra you need to follow in taking care of the stray animals.

The third thing that you need to search for is the experience of the team of the company. You can’t trust a team that’s popular for hitting or hurting the animals. Unless you are not sure about how the team would handle the animals you want to be taken care of, do not call the company. There are several Animal Control service companies that pay no attention to even the basic needs of the animals. There is no point in having such teams work for you. After all, you want the animals to get a shelter and not eventually die.

The last thing that you need to look for is a company that really wants to help the stray animals. There are several companies that ensure to take proper care of the animals, provide them with food, water and shelter and then have them adopted by families that wish to have pets. Never go for companies that are known for hitting, neutering or spaying the animals. Always search for a company that promises to find a proper shelter for the animal and ensures to take care of it until a family is found. We keep the safety of the animals and yours in our best interest, we take care of them by taking them to an appropriate shelter.
