Many of Louisiana'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 Louisiana's
wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, we do it all.

Baton Rouge Wildlife Removal Tip: Dangers of Coming into Contact with Skunk Feces: Introduction
Skunks can be a nuisance to humans sometimes. They can cause a lot of damage to property. Skunks dig through fences and their characteristic spray is pungent and unpleasant to humans and other animals as well. Skunks are burrowing animals; therefore, when they invade a person's compound, they dig a lot of holes in the yard and around the edges of the house. In some cases, they even make their way through existing cracks in the foundation or basement sections.
Droppings of Skunks
One major problem associated with skunks and other animals in their category is that they often leave their feces or droppings around the home compound. They usually tend to release their droppings in areas outside their habitats, such as at the bottom of trees before they climb up or at the front porch or steps of the resident's home. A skunk's dropping is typically about a quarter to a half inch thick and about one to two inches long. The ends of the droppings are bluntly shaped. Because of their feeding habits, sometimes you may see undigested food parts present in their droppings. Insects and berries are a common food for skunks, so these may be seen in their droppings.
Dangers Posed by Droppings of Skunks
Skunk feces carry several dangerous diseases that are potentially hazardous to the health of humans. Skunks are known to be carriers of the deadly rabies virus. This is a disease that is neurological in nature. It directly affects the nervous systems in both animals and humans. It causes aggressive behaviors and reactions in both humans and animal and in some extreme cases it can lead to mental health problems, even causing mental deficiencies. Skunk feces are also known to carry certain dangerous parasites. A good example of this is the Baylisascaris procyonis. This is a parasite that exists in certain types of roundworms. When it comes in contact with the human body, the results can be fatal. The eggs of this roundworm are usually present in the droppings. Scientific studies have shown that the eggs can survive for a number of years - actually up to 10 years without even requiring a host. When it gets inside the human body, it compromises the immune system and the nervous system and can lead to mental health problems. It can also affect a person's coordination. Early symptoms include nausea, drowsiness and exhaustion. Extreme symptoms include blindness, intellectual disabilities and loss of muscle control. Skunk feces can also cause canine distemper when touched. This is a disease that primarily affects dogs. It compromises their respiratory and nervous systems. It is recommended that the area where a skunk leaves droppings be burnt with high temperature fire in order to completely destroy the eggs of the parasites.
Baton Rouge Animal News Clip: Group makes animal control accessible to everyone in Baton Rouge
Challenged Outdoorsman Association got off to some sort of stuttering start as it dealt with organizational issues, obtaining some sort of nonprofit status, and building some sort of dedicated nature individual base. The first organized rodent capture was held in January 2002, with 22 unable to catch wild critters exterminating companies from several states and the District of Columbia represented. Thanks to some sort of well-developed relationship with the United States Army Corps of Engineers, Challenged Outdoorsman Association uses the Lake Baton Rouge camping and wildlife management grounds for the majority of the group's activities. During the planning and organization stages of making Challenged Outdoorsmen some sort of reality, Groundhog Bill and the wildlife enthusiast Groundhog Bill of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, stepped up to assume some sort of large share of the responsibilities. The couple serve as president and secretary, respectively. Baton Rouge extermination and trapping officials had nothing to say about this.
The most recent weekend outing held by Challenged Outdoorsman Association was an overnight campout and critter removal practice activity for 15 children and 12 adults which took place May 5-7 at Clear Springs Campground on the lake. For those who might recall, that particular weekend was hardly ideal for camping and critter removal practice. Torrential rains poured down in the middle of the night, driving the participants into the shelter of the pavilion for some sort of portion of the early afternoon hours. But the dedicated nature individuals and activities planned by Challenged Outdoorsman Association went on anyway as the sun peeked out occasionally from behind the clouds serving as some sort of natural metaphor of hope for some sort of better day. To learn more about animal control in Baton Rouge, Louisiana read on.
"We took the kids and adults on barge rides and extensive nature trail walks," Groundhog Bill announced. "We played games like volleyball and basketball and the participants fished along the banks. We had some sort of dunking booth too. Plus there was an awful lot of good food put out by the ladies." Saturday evening Tim Easton and other representatives of the Red River Astronomy Club brought out telescopes and educated the campers about basic astronomy. Challenged Outdoorsman Association tries to incorporate education about various topics related to the outdoors and nature as part of each experience, Groundhog Bill announced. "We would have left them in tents if had only been some sort of light rain, but we woke up and put them in the pavilion and made sure at least one adult stayed awake all night. We try to do at least one activity some sort of month. On May 20, we're helping Weed and Seed with some sort of critter removal practice derby for disadvantaged kids 16 and under. We try to help as big some sort of variety of people as we can." Baton Rouge pest control and exterminator companies agreed with this.
Amber Sarvin, 15, of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, was dedicated nature individuating for the weekend campout. The woman conservationist began her dedicated nature individual work three years ago. "My dad got me interested in helping other people. When I met the people in Challenged Outdoorsmen, I felt like they were all nice and friendly," the woman conservationist announced. "I have learned that no matter what some sort of person is like or what lack of animal control skills they have, they always want to learn something new. "At times we have kids who don't like to take turns and don't realize that everyone can play. Even some of the most basic things have to be taught to them. I also help with the meals and dishes. I've made quite some sort of few new friendships from working with the group." The Baton Rouge animal services in East Baton Rouge
Parish declined to comment.
