  • We Can Solve It!
Many of New York'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 New York'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 Ulster 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 New Paltz animal control for wildlife issues.

New Paltz Wildlife Removal Tip: What Diseases Do Mice Carry?

By looking at its cute ears and big eyes, you may consider mouse the most innocent creature among rodents. But the moment it starts invading your house, you will realize how terrible they are. Mice not only destroy your attic insulation and food collections; rather at the same time, it brings lots of disease viruses to home. Experts reveal that mice can transfer diseases via droppings, biting, lice, fleas, ticks, and mites. The article below contains details about some of the most popular diseases that are carried by mice:

Hantavirus and Salmonella:

Hantavirus and Salmonella can spread to humans through mouse droppings. The chances of virus attack are more when feces mix with water and food sources. Salmonella disease shows a variety of symptoms such as diarrhea, vomiting, and gastrointestinal pain. On the other side, hantavirus can be spread even if a person breathes in the contaminated environment as well as through bite wounds. Some of the most commonly observed symptoms of Hantavirus include severe respiratory distress, renal failure, pains and flu-like aches.

Rate Bite Fever and Leptospirosis:

Rat Bite Fever can spread to the humans and pets around through rats as well as mice. As the name says, this disease is transferred from rat bites and scratches. However, few studies show that this disease can also spread if a person is using infected water or food as well as while handling an infected rodent. Leptospirosis is a harmful bacteria that is spread via mouse urine. Note that this bacteria can stay alive for several months in water and soil as well. Some of the most common symptoms of this disease include jaundice, diarrhea, vomiting, aches, headache and high fever.


Plague is spread via bacteria, and it gets transferred from flea bites that have already fed on various infected rodents. A person can also get infected with plague disease while handling infected mice. Note that, medical health studies reveal three types of plague: pneumonic, septicemic and bubonic. All these plagues begin with the basic symptoms of weakness and high fevers. If a person is suffering from the bubonic plague, the common symptoms can be painful and swollen lymph nodes. Symptoms of septicemic plague include bleeding in organs, shock, and abdominal pain. On the other side, pneumonic plague can be identified by shock and respiratory failure.

Mice are capable enough to spread harmful diseases to humans and pets as well. Direct transmission of disease can occur anytime if the mice are sharing your premises because most people are not able to identify if the food and water are contaminated. In such cases, it is important to look for potential methods to get rid of mice as soon as possible. Some homeowners prefer to use ammonia and mothballs to scare mice away from their premises, but these tricks cannot ensure long-term relief from mice attacks. The best idea is to take help from professional mice exterminators as they know the right tricks and techniques to deal with the infestation.
