Milford Ohio Wildlife Animals of Concern
Two of the most common concerns of homeowners and commercial property owners are the easter grey squirrel and raccoons. Eastern grey squirrels are out and about every day, running through our lawns, hanging out on our decks, and rummaging through garbage. Even though raccoons are nocturnal, they are widely seen during the day. Unfortunately, they also love to feed and trash our garbage cans.
Both squirrels and raccoons find a way to live in our environments when seeking food, shelter and warmth. Attics are a popular choice for them both; however, raccoons will also nest in roof eaves, unlike squirrels.
Wildlife Animals Putting You at Risk
Are you aware that, as you may find them on your roaming around your property or in your home’s attic, you can be putting yourself, your family, guests and pets at risk?
These wild animals are just that, wild animals. They will attack if they feel threatened. So you are running the risk of getting bitten. In addition, diseases such as rabies constitute a significant concern. If rabid and you leave the bite or scratch untreated, it can be fatal.
Damage and Disease
When these wild animals take up residency in your home, they cause damage to the area and spread disease, leaving their droppings of urine and feces. Leptospirosis and Salmonellosis are two diseases. Leptospirosis, if left untreated, can lead to kidney failure. A little less dangerous, Salmonellosis can often be treated with antibiotics and hydrating and replenishing electrolytes.
Lyme disease is another cause for concern; while these animals may not bite you, they often host ticks. And afterward, when a tick bites, there is a need for concern.
If you take it upon yourself to handle and remove a dead wild animal, you are at risk for Tularemia. Another disease where antibiotics will be needed.
