Many of Missouri'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 Missouri'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 St. Louis 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 Florissant animal control for wildlife issues.

Florissant Wildlife Removal Tip: How to clean animal waste in your attic

After removing a wild animal that had invaded your house, the next devastating thing to do other than repair is to clean its waste. The task becomes even more devastating if it had made the attic its habitat. The waste need to be cleaned as it might be the source of the awful smell in your house, worms falling from your roof or even illnesses. Then how exactly do we go about the cleaning?

Tools required for cleaning the animal waste

As I had said earlier, the wild animal waste may stink or may be dangerous if humans get into contact with them. This means, during cleaning some tools are required. Some of them include;

Rubber gloves
Air masks
Vacuum cleaner, among others

How to go about the cleaning

There are different ways of cleaning the waste. It all depends the place the waste is located and the type of waste. Some of the ways of cleaning the waste includes;

Clean the waste using a vacuum cleaner. For small wild animals like the rat, mites and bats, the waste and food debris left after removing them can be cleaned using a vacuum cleaner. It would be tiresome to pick the waste using your hands.
In case the waste of such small wild animals like the rats is too many, using a vacuum cleaner would be quite impossible. Therefore, hosepipes need to be use instead. The hosepipe is place in the attic with the suction machine outside and hence the whole attic is sucked in.
You can also use your hands to clean the attic. For big wild animals like skunks and raccoons, the waste left behind cannot be cleaned using a vacuum cleaner. Therefore, you have to wear rubber gloves and pick up all the waste.
After cleaning the solid waste, the smell and stains left behind can be removed through sterilization. The whole place need to be smoked with special biohazard prevention gas which sterilizes the whole area and also kills the awful smell.


Therefore, repairing damages after removing a wild animal that have been living in your house is not the only thing that you are required to do. Cleaning the waste is also required. As we have seen, wastes can be cleaned using different ways. Therefore, always take your time to decide the method that you are going to put into use. We have also found out that some waste is harmful; always wear protective clothing.
