  • Scratching Noises in Your Attic?
  • Unwanted Wildlife on Property?
  • Problem Bird or Bat Infestation?

  • We Can Solve It!
Many of Oregon'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 Oregon'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 Douglas 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 Reedsport animal control for wildlife issues.

Reedsport Wildlife Removal Tip: What diseases do bats carry?

Bats don't carry many diseases that can harm people. Generally, the main concerns are Histoplasmosis and rabies. Bats can be carriers of these two diseases and can infect people.

Histoplasmosis is a lung disease that is caused by fungi that is transferred in bat feces. Fungi can lay dormant in feces for a long period of time, and when a person comes into contact with the bat guano (i.e., inhale dry particles of bat feces with the Histoplasma fungi in it), they will contract this disease. In its usual form, Histoplasmosis is a disease with symptoms that very much resemble the symptoms of the flu: muscle pain and headache, high temperature, soreness in muscles, and fever. However, in more difficult cases, either in people with low immunity or with other health problems, Histoplasmosis can be dangerous and very long-lasting, causing numerous problems, even a life-long lung disease. Sometimes it can even be fatal, so this is definitely a reason why people should always avoid bat feces if not properly equipped to remove it. Histoplasmosis treatment includes antifungal cures that can last between 3-12 months. The infected person will be tested occasionally during this period to see whether the fungus has left the body.

When it comes to rabies, bats can infect people with rabies if they have it and if they are in an infectious stage. Although there are very few cases when a bat that has bitten a person was rabid, it is still important to always go and get an anti-rabies vaccine when you get bitten by a bat. How to know whether there is a reason for concern? A rabid bat will act strangely; it will not try to fly away from you but instead will seem aggressive and will actually go after you in order to bite you.

In any case, as already mentioned, when you get bitten by a bat, go and get medical help immediately. If you were indeed bitten by a rabid bat, you need to get a vaccine within 12 hours of the bite or within 48 hours at the latest. Rabies is a highly infectious viral infection that affects the neural system of a patient, and in the end it will cause a fatal outcome if left untreated. The worst problem with the rabies infection is that it barely has any symptoms until the final stage, which makes it impossible to trace and to treat until it is too late.

Besides the already mentioned diseases, bats can carry different insects that can be carriers of their own infections.
