Why Wildlife Control is important

Wildlife management or nuisance wildlife management refers to the process of selective or systematic elimination of certain species of wildlife which has become destructive, threatening, or threat to human health.
The most common nuisance wildlife include opossums, squirrels, rats, mice, raccoons, pigeons, snakes, skunks, and bats. These animals pose a threat to human health since they carry disease-causing ticks, lice, viruses and germs. One of the best ways to eliminate or relocate them is to seek the help of a professional wildlife management and removal support.
Much like people and all animals, wildlife deserves a place on this planet. But since they are one of the most common carriers of diseases, they have to be removed to keep people safe. Here’s a list of nuisance animals that are potential carriers of zoonotic diseases when they invade houses: Raccoon Rabies is a deadly viral disease that attacks a man who is bitten by a rabid animal. Raccoon roundworms are parasitic worms that someone can undergo accidental inhalation or ingestion of raccoon feces that contain parasite eggs. This can lead to larval migration into the central nervous system and it can lead to damage to the brain and eye tissues.
Liptospirosis, on the other hand is a bacterial disease that animals pass to humans through contact with infected urine. People who suffer with liptospirosis experience fever, shivering, vomiting, dehydration, meningitis, renal failure and kidney damage.
Salmonella is a bacterium that can lead to food poisoning. Humans can contract it by eating foods that are contaminated by infected animals.
2. Squirrel
Squirrels aren’t notorious carriers of zoonotic diseases, but they have a capability to infect humans due to their droppings which could carry liptospirosis and salmonella bacteria. Skunk
Skunks are not known carriers of disease-causing organisms. They simply become a nuisance when they intrude human dwellings. Their burrowing, feeding, and defense habits become a menace when they perform it in basements, garages, and other areas in people’s houses. Rats
Rats became notorious when they brought bubonic plague that caused thousands of deaths in Europe from the middle ages. Other ailments that rats can transmit to people include rat-bite fever, ricketsia, eosinophilic meningitis (an infection of the brain), leptospirosis, and salmonella-related sicknesses.
5. Birds
The bird which has the highest potential to invade houses is pigeons. They are not known to carry and transmit zoonotic diseases but their droppings can become a host to a type of fungus that can cause histoplasmosis, a flu-like disease characterized by fever, chills, joint pains, chest pain, and mouth sores. This can happen when someone inhales the spores of this fungus that grow on pigeon droppings. Bats
Bats may appear harmless, but they are the most frequent transmitter of the rabies virus especially in the North American continent. You should be cautious about them when they invade your house because they could bite.
These are the most common wildlife that you need to be worried about when they happen to invade your home. In case any of the above mentioned wildlife do become a nuisance for you, you should contact a humane wildlife removal and control service that will help you solve your problem.
