What problems do wildlife cause?

Most of the calls we get are because homeowners hear animals scurrying around inside the attic or walls. You also might have discovered critter droppings or evidence of chewing. Most of the damage inside a houes or attic is unseen. Rodents like squirrels, mice, and rats gnaw. They often chew on electrical wires, which can cause a fire hazard in your home. I've seen them chew on pipes many times, causing leaks, as well as electrical outages. Wildlife such as raccoons, bats, birds, opossums, and rats spread several diseases that humans can and do catch, such as Histoplasmosis, Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome, Salmonella or Leptospirosis from the droppings, and Eosinophilic Meningitis to name a few. Most animals will chew or tear open an entry access to your home. Raccoons in an attic will often tear the duct work to shreds, not to mention electrical wires. They can leave huge amounts of droppings and urine. The same goes for bats, which in large numbers can leave a huge amount of guano behind. Birds also soil buildings with their droppings. Oftentimes, the animals living in your house also die inside your house, causing a terrible odor problem.

If you have a problem with an animal outside the house, you can see the damage. It could be a groundhog that has dug a large hole next to your house, or a raccoon that is tipping over your garbage cans or pooping in your swimming pool. It might be an opossum that is stealing pet food, or a skunk living under your deck, causing an odor problem. Some animals might destroy your garden or landscaping. Or perhaps you are simply scared of snakes. Whatever the problem is, our wildlife experts can remove the source of the problem, and prevent it from happening again.

Why is our company the best?

Each of our 300+ field operators does a complete job, from start to finish. We remove wildlife humanely and effectively, using the proper traps, tools, and techniques for each unique animal and situation. When we encounter animals inside a house, we inspect every part of the house, from ground level to every part of the roof, to identify all the areas of entry, and all vulnerable areas, and we perform professional repairs, with guarantee, to seal entry holes shut. We inspect inside the attic to find any damage or biohazard, and provide full cleaning services. We offer attic decontamination, poison-free and permanent rodent control, bat colony exclusion, bird prevention, snake removal, dead animal removal and odor control, and more.

Wildlife removal is not a simple task. Each of the field operators in our 300+ branches have received extensive and continuing education on the proper techniques and tools for removing unwanted nuisance wildlife from homes and property. Most of our branches have 5+ years of experience, in many cases 20+ years. Due to the complexities of the job, the dangers of dealing with wildlife and diseases, and the laws for dealing with wildlife in each US state, wildlife removal is rarely a do-it-yourself type job. Each animal is different, and each situation is different. Most of our field technicians do not become proficient in their work until they have completed years of field work and hundreds of cases. Experience matters a great deal.

This week's article: Do all bats carry rabies?

Rabies is one of the oldest diseases to have been recorded throughout history, as the oldest records of the disease reach as far as 2000 BC. Transmitted amongst mammals through bodily fluids, it poses a high risk as it can spread through animal bites and scratches, and even turn into an outbreak. Bats are one of the most feared animals when it comes to spreading rabies.

By far, it is a misconception that all bats have rabies. Bats are not born with rabies. However, bats can contract and spread rabies, and rabies does pose a significant risk in case that a man, or any other animal, goes into contact with a bat. A bat can both contract and spread rabies while hunting and in contact with the rest of the bats in the colony.

But, what does this mean to a human dreading that a bat infected with rabies will endanger them, their family, or their pets? In strict terms of the situation in which a bat might find itself in a human household, rabies does pose a significant risk. First things first, bats can spread rabies though their feces, called guano. In case of a bat infestation, a colony will quickly pile large amounts of guano in a single home. This is a situation which it is only enough for a one bat to carry rabies to create the risk of spreading it. In a more spontaneous sense in which we may encounter bats in our homes, there are good chances that the animal will suffer from a certain disease, including rabies. In healthy bats, their ability to manage within the space is highly precise and sharpened.

As bats are nocturnal, they will use the dark hours to be active- to fly and feed. This means, that once we encounter a bat that allows us to approach or touch them, they are either sick or injured. In any case, standing still in the open and interacting with other species is not normal bat behavior. To conclude, even though statistical chances that a bat is infected with rabies is rather small, a chance that a single or multiple bats caught in a person’s home is infected with rabies remains quite serious. For this reason, it is not recommended to touch or try to trap a bat on your own.
