5 Reasons Why Wildife Animals Need Ohio Nuisance Wildlife Trappers
Just about every homeowner at some point must deal with a nuisance animal. Often, the temptation is to handle it by themselves, which is never a good idea. If you are dealing with nuisance animals, here are five reasons you should hire professional Ohio Nuisance Wildlife Trappers.
Wild Animals are Wild
There is a reason we call nuisance animals “wild.” There is also a reason wildlife resources personnel plead with the public not to feed wild animals. Those two reasons are why every year we read about someone that tried to feed a wild animal and ended up getting bitten, mauled, or worse.
Even if a nuisance animal looks cute, friendly or tame, it has the same instincts that help it survive in the wild. Those instincts make it bite, scratch, attack and lash out when it feels threatened.
You are Not a Wildlife Nuisance Removal Expert
You are not trained in how to trap, release or exclude an animal. You also probably do not know the seasonal cycles that make wildlife exclusion a better option than others. Further, even if you manage to remove a wild animal from your home or prevent them from rooting through your trash, you likely have no long-term strategy to keep them away.
DIY wildlife removal and control is seldom successful. First, you must understand how animal functions to get how to remove them. If you do not, you can hurt the animal, leave stragglers behind and even create new ways for an animal to become a nuisance.
Diseases and Pests
Wild animals carry diseases. Their excrement can carry parasites and harmful bacteria. If you are dealing with a dead animal, the disease, bacteria and parasite risk is there; plus, wild animals often have fleas and ticks.
The point is a wild animal can carry a host of nastiness that can make a human sick. Unless you know what you are doing and have the right equipment, removing them can pose a risk to you and your family.
The disease risk includes some that can kill you. Here are the most common diseases and parasites a wild animal can carry that can transfer to you:
- Lyme disease
It is illegal to harm or kill a bat in Ohio. Using any firearm in some locations is at least restricted, if not banned. Inflicting any pain or injury to an animal can qualify as “animal cruelty” and lead to criminal charges.
Then there are the legalities regarding transporting wild animals. For example, dumping a squirrel or raccoon on your own is against the law in some locales. You can only transport them with other animals if you have specific licenses, certifications or follow specific regulations and procedures.
Trying to remove wildlife can injure the animal. That animal might be a nuisance to you, but it can thrive without being a pest in the right environment. Only professional Ohio nuisance wildlife trappers can safely get it to that environment.
