Why Do I Need To Clean A Nuisance Pest’s Mess

Nuisance pests can cause a lot of problems. Raccoons and squirrels can chew into anything. Bats leave guano all over the place. Birds leave their nests in home vents. Groundhogs and moles leave tunnels throughout your yard. Mice stink up the home. The company you call to remove these critters should work with you to go over a step by step plan. The technician will talk to you in regards of cleaning your home after removing the animals. This last step is extremely important and should not be overlooked by you nor the technician.

Let me explain some of the most important reasons the remediation step is so important. Any animal that inhabits your home using the space not only to live in but to also use the restroom. Depending the amount of time an animal has lived in the space, there can be a significant amount of urine and feces gathered. When it comes to a raccoon and/or bat, their feces is toxic to humans. Raccoon feces can carry roundworm that can be inhaled or swallowed. Giardia is another disease found in raccoon feces which causes stomach problems. Leptospirosis is another which causes headaches, jaundice and fever. Bats can carry histoplasmosis which affects the lungs to make it hard to breathe and could cause death if not treated. Different animals can cause different diseases which is why it is important to clean up their mess.

Another reason that cleaning up the nuisance’s mess is destroy the material inside a home. Pests, which has made your attic their home, can cause damage to

important materials of the home. The insulation helps control the temperature of the home, either by keeping it cool or warm. If the insulation is damaged, then the home's electric bill could increase due to not having the proper materials working like they should. Squirrels are known for using their sharp teeth to chew wires inside the home. Not only could this not allow the electricity work properly, but can also cause a fire within the home. Nuisance pests can also damage the outside of the home as well. They can tear open small holes to make them larger in order to enter the home which can damage the siding, roof top, gables and/or soffits.

Then, there is the odor. Any wildlife nuisance pest smells. We are not able to give these animals baths as we do domestic animals.
