Wildlife living in your walls and other parts of your house may be noisy and irritating, but they are much more than a simple nuisance. Animals living in your house pose serious dangers to your home and family. Squirrels and other animals like raccoons can cause damage to insulation and electrical wiring, but worst of all: Wildlife poses serious health risks.
Any animal that is living in your home will produce droppings that are much worse than a disgusting annoyance. If birds or bats are living in your attic, their droppings can cause serious diseases, like histoplasmosis and cryptococcosis. Rat and mouse droppings come with their own share of diseases and infection risks, including Hantavirus pulmonary syndrome. The longer you wait to call a wildlife removal service, the more disease-ridden fecal matter and urine will accumulate in the walls, attic, or basement of your home.
Parasites and other sources of disease
Wildlife brings in fleas and other parasites from the outdoors and provides them a home inside your house. Rats, opossums, and other pests can carry the fleas which carry diseases, like murine typhus. Even if the fleas are not carrying diseases, their bites can be exceptionally irritating. Wildlife removal services can get rid of the vessel on which these parasites enter your home.
In some rare instances, homeowners are attacked by pests and bitten when going into the attic or crawlspace. Aside from the bite itself, some animal, like mice and rats, can transmit diseases like rat-bite fever and rabies. All wildlife bites should be taken very seriously. Removal of the wildlife from your home will eliminate the threat of your pets or someone in your family being bitten.
