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.

We do not handle dog or cat problems. If you need assistance with a domestic animal, such as a dog or a cat, you need to call your local San Diego county animal services for assistance. They can help you out with issues such as stray dogs, stray cats, spay & neuter programs, vaccinations, licenses, pet adoption, bite reports, deceased pets, lost pets, local animal complaints and to report neglected or abused animals. There is no free North Park animal control for wildlife issues.

North Park Wildlife Removal Tip: What Are Some Of The Symptoms Of A Sick Bat?

Like most other mammals, bats are also known as carriers of rabies virus. So many cases of rabies virus have been reported in the USA within last few years, and many of them are caused by bats. Not much, but at least one death per year is caused by rabies infection that is transferred from the bat. However, the chances of death are more with viruses contained by raccoons, skunks, and dogs. Probably it is just because all these creatures stay more close to us as compared to the bats that are insane nocturnal mammals. No matter what kind of animal or mammal you find in your home or in the garden, it is not advised to touch them with bare hands. The rule of thumb says that you should maintain great distance from alive as well as dead animals; especially if you don't know whether it is sick or not. If you make efforts to rehabilitate the animal with doing it yourself procedures, you may end up creating big trouble for yourself.

One of the scary fact about bats is that these aggressive mammals are carriers of rabies virus. Reports reveal that around one-half numbers of bats seen in urban areas may contain certain disease virus, including rabies. However, some studies also reveal that sick bats rarely try to come close to humans rather they prefer to search for some peaceful corners to die. There is no point of getting affected with rabies virus by just sighting the bat in your premises. This virus doesn't even get transferred to another body if they touch bat blood, urine or fur, etc. Rather, the disease is actually transferred via saliva when the bat bites you. Also, if somehow the saliva enters to your body through mouth, eyes, and nose, you may need instant help from medical health experts.

In case if bats enter a room with some mentally disabled, sleeping, intoxicated person or child; it is important to contact medical health professionals fast for a rabies test. In case if you find a bat moving outdoors; try to observe symptoms if it is injured or ill. The sick bat is often unable to fly so it may be seen in the open areas even in the day hours as well. The fur color of the California bats also varies if they are infected with some kind of virus.

The true fact is that inexperienced people find it quite difficult to recognize disease symptoms. They cannot identify whether the bat is normal or sick and may sometime try to touch these creatures with bare hands. Even if they have created roosts on your premises, it is not good to make efforts to take them out with hands. Prefer to contact professional bat removal company. These people know right techniques to deal with the issue and can help you to ensure complete safety of family without worrying about disease viruses. Take help from medical health professionals if you by mistake make contact with bats.
