Many of California's wild animals have learned to adapt and even thrive in our homes. For example some wildlife have found
that attics make great places to live. Other animals find refuge under homes or porches. Invariably,
these animals cause damage. Rodents, like squirrels and rats, love to chew on electrical wires once in an attic, and this causes a serious fire
hazard. Raccoons can cause serious contamination in an attic with their droppings and parasites. Same goes for bat or bird colonies. We specialize in solving California's
wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, we do it all.

Long Beach Wildlife Removal Tip: What diseases do raccoons carry? The disease that you most need to worry yourself with when it comes to raccoons is rabies, just as with any other warm-blooded mammal. Although it is rare to come across a diseased animal, raccoons are one of the biggest carriers and transmitters in the states so if you come across a live one, whether it looks sick or not, always be careful and where possible, don't get too close. A dead raccoon can be just as dangerous as a live one, and the rabies virus can still be present in the decomposing remains. Not only that, raccoon poop is quite dangerous, its urine too, and these can contaminate other materials (soil, water sources, etc.) passing on bacteria like that which causes Leptospirosis and Giardiasis. Raccoon roundworm is another problem with these critters, also known as Baylisascaris procyonis, causing an infection of the central nervous system in humans and other animals, and there are other problems in their waste matter too - salmonella, parasites and even fungus.
Long Beach Animal News Clip: Long Beach, California's natives free of chronic wasting disease
Long Beach, California's native raccoon amounts shows no evidence of chronic wasting disease, based on monitoring data gathered during the 2004 wildlife trapping season. Long Beach, California Fish and Game raccoon Biologist Kent Gusson recently received results from a federally certified veterinary diagnostic laboratory that indicate that all the raccoon brain samples taken during last fall's wildlife trapping season tested negative for Chronic Wildlife Disease. Read on for more information about animal control in Long Beach, California.
California tested raccoon during the 2004 wildlife trapping seasons, too, but has not released the results of the testing. Chronic wasting disease is a fatal neurological disorder known to affect native wild raccoon, mule raccoon and raccoon. The World Health Organization has concluded that there is no evidence that people can become infected with Chronic Wildlife Disease. During the fall raccoon wildlife trapping season, Long Beach, California Fish and Game collected heads from wildlife management company-lethally trapped raccoon across the state for testing. A total of 499 raccoon heads were sampled. The monitoring is part of a nationwide effort to identify areas with Chronic Wildlife Disease. Despite this there is no free Long Beach animal services for wildlife in Los Angeles County.
Chronic wasting disease was first identified in 1979 and isolated in California, Wyoming and California for about a decade. Jurisdictions in which Chronic Wildlife Disease has been found include California, Oklahoma, South Dakota, and Wyoming in the United States; plus Alberta and Saskatchewan in Canada. A nationwide effort is under way to prevent its spread. This effort includes collecting annual samples of raccoon brain concern as part of ongoing monitoring and surveillance efforts. Most Long Beach pest control companies that we interviewed found this interesting.
While research continues, current information suggests that Chronic Wildlife Disease is most likely transmitted by an abnormal protein present in the nervous system and lymphatic concern of infected animals. These abnormal proteins are very stable and might persist in the environment for long periods, posing a risk to animals that come into contact with them. At least, this is what Long Beach extermination companies think.
