When Do You Need 24-Hour Animal Control?

Close Encounters with the Wild Side: When to Call Animal Control

Nature is incredible. The natural world is full of boundless, miraculous beauty. Breathtaking vistas or serene glades right outside our doors if we take the time to look, because we live on the edge of a wild kingdom of flora and fauna. But that kingdom does not play by humanity’s rules, and sometimes the creatures we encounter in the natural world do not share our appreciation and wonder or respect our boundaries. When you have an encounter with a wild animal and you are not sure how to handle it, your best option is: don’t! Instead, call a professional who can safely handle your problem to prevent injury to either party. ALCO NJ Animal & Pest Control has been doing just that for twenty years, offering 24-hour animal control because (let’s face it) Nature doesn’t sleep. Here are some common scenarios where you should give us a call:

A Dead or Injured Animal

Because of the risks associated with parasites and infectious diseases, including rabies, you should never try to move a dead animal on your own. Instead, make sure that the area is safe and free of people, and then call your local animal control officer for removal.

Injured animals, like their human counterparts, are prone to lashing out. If the animal looks to be alive, do not approach it, and follow the same steps as above. In most cases, animal control will provide emergency treatment and free transportation to a veterinarian, much like an ambulance does with people. If the animal is a stray, they will also help to find it a good home.

Infestation or Home Invasion

Have you found yourself housing an unexpected guest? Of course, if your unwanted houseguest happens to be sleeping in a bed or on a couch and speaking a human language, animal control probably isn’t your best option. But when you have animals burrowing in your walls or nesting in your attic, it’s time to call Alco Animal & Pest Control. While these creatures are simply looking for shelter, they can still cause serious harm to your property or themselves, which in turn presents a threat to you and your family. Because many nocturnal animals have a tendency to make their way into our homes, ALCO NJ Animal & Pest Control’s 24-hour animal control service is all the more important.

Bites and Injuries

While animal control cannot help with medical treatment for people, you should call them after sustaining a bite, especially if it is an unfamiliar animal, or the animal is acting strangely. Animal control will test the animal for infectious diseases, take appropriate action, and advise you on the next steps to keep you –and your family – safe.

In most cases, living around animals, whether domesticated or wild, is perfectly safe. However, when there are situations such as those listed above and you need 24-hour animal control, it’s time to call ALCO Animal & Pest Control. Contact us at any time at (973) 540-9944.

Pest Control in NJ

Living in the modern world has many benefits. For one, we get to pick and choose who enters our home, and by extension, who we get to interact with on a daily basis. Our homes are our sanctuaries. That is why when they are invaded by pests, we can feel as if everything comes crashing down on us. Pests come in all shapes and sizes. Large pests are easier to notice and often travel alone. Small pests can bring with them an entire infestation that not only wreak havoc on your peace of mind, but also your property. Our experts provide affordable pest control in NJ to help you deal with these pests head on.

The professionals at Alco Pest Control use expert methods and equipment to ensure your home is safe from unwanted intruders.

We know how annoying, stressful, and nerve-wracking it can be to have pests lurking around your home. Call our pest control experts day or night for efficient pest service and long-term protection against future pests.

We should advice you never to attempt DIY pest control in NJ. Sure, many over the counter remedies exist that promise to get rid of the pests once and for all. The problem is that some of these products simply don't work. The ones that do work often require the precision and delicacy of a professional. Instead of playing trial and error with such products, save yourself time and energy and do it right the first time.
