Danger of Wild Animals

squirrelWhen an animal nests in a home, it creates a huge mess of feces, urine, and other debris. These substances are not only unpleasant but create a health hazard for your home or business. Without taking action to remove and restore your home, these contaminants could causing additional damage day by day.  Wildlife Removal in Virginia will clean up the mess and make sure the area is returned to a sanitary condition.

Bats, raccoons, squirrels, skunks, birds and other wild animals may sometimes be cute critters, but they also pose a serious threat to your health, home and pets. While these creatures may appear harmless, they can also carry rabies and other diseases as well as parasites, fleas, ticks and other insects.  More importantly, wild animals can become dangerous and very unpredictable when exposed to humans.

Public Health Concerns

Diseases of wildlife can cause significant illness and death to individual animals and can significantly affect wildlife populations. Wildlife species can also serve as natural hosts for certain Young skunkdiseases that affect humans (zoonoses). The disease agents or parasites that cause these zoonotic diseases can be contracted from wildlife directly by bites or contamination, or indirectly through the bite of arthropod vectors such as mosquitoes, ticks, fleas and mites that have previously fed on an infected animal.

Humans and Wildlife

Humans and wildlife share the same basic needs and challenges: securing food and shelter, avoiding predators and rivals, seeking safety, and making sure that their children survive and prosper. Humans and wildlife share the same world, environment, and habitat. Historically, people WRlogowideviewed human habitat—the rural, suburban, and urban areas where humans live and work—to be separate from wildlife habitat. Wildlife habitats were those areas that humans had set aside for them. This might be as small as a patch of cover on a farm or as large as a national park or national forest. This dichotomy of human habitat and wildlife habitat was always an illusion because both humans and wild animals are mobile. Instead, human development is constantly expanding into many new areas, and people are hiking and camping in the most remote parts of North America. Likewise, wild animals are moving into towns and cities. The end result of this two-way movement of people and wildlife is a closer association of humans and wild animals. On balance, this close association is a positive development because humans enjoy seeing wildlife in their neighborhoods, and wild animals have more areas where they can thrive. But sometimes, this close association has negative consequences for either humans or wildlife, or for both.
