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

Quakertown Wildlife Removal Tip: Are rat feces dangerous to touch or breathe? Infestations of rats or any other rodents tend to create quite a mess in the habitat of their choosing and most often the targets will be our attics or other places of our home where they might seek comfort, shelter and a source of food. While they should be disposed in the best way possible and the habitat cleaned up, it is important to take precautionary measures when coming in contact with surfaces that have been infected with rat urine and droppings as these do pose a significant health risk to all humans and can cause major illnesses.
Rats have been known historically as the carriers of the bubonic plague during the middle ages and the disease spread when fleas from rats made contact and bit the humans, thus transferring the virus. However there are many other diseases that can be transmitted from the contact with rat feces.
First of which is the Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome. Discovered in 1993, it is a potentially deadly virus that is transferred via rat urine and droppings. The symptoms include aching, tiredness and a fever; all of these are early signs of infection that targets the large muscle groups on a human predominantly. The symptoms get progressively worse, nausea and vomiting that leads to a shortness of breath. One to five weeks of contact is when the infection will take its full swing and it will be fatal in majority of the cases.
Hemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome is the next disease. Transferred from urine, droppings and saliva of the rats, its incubation period is about 2 weeks and the symptoms consist of violent headaches, fever, abdominal pain and blurred vision. The fatality rates are pretty high if not treated properly with corresponding therapy.
Arenaviridae is another type of virus transmitted via rat droppings and urine, it is also linked to diseases such as Lassa fever and Brazilian hemorrhagic fever. Agricultural workers are most prone to it in many instances and the symptoms are similar to that of flu, but also some strains of virus lead to blood being found in human urine.
Leptospirosis is another significant disease transferred by rat feces and urine from damp areas. Many people contract it by coming into contact with water that has been infected by either swimming through it or drinking it. Symptoms of the disease include rashes, abdominal pain, red eyes and jaundice. This disease requires antibiotic treatments in order to be cured properly.
Finally, in addition to all these diseases, rats can also be a source of allergens since their droppings or any shed hair can cause people to experience allergic reactions. Remember to always be safe and properly protected when dealing with rat feces and the best option is to call and certified expert to take care of the situation.
Quakertown Animal News Clip: Rodents in our backyard
It might not have come to the attention of city residents yet, but people who live out in the woods southeast of Quakertown know it. There are rodents out there. Lots of them. Skunk Caller Harold, who lives in Quakertown, caught one rummaging around near the apartment the animal advocate rents. "I was driving home, and came into the driveway around 10 at night, and I saw this black shape. It was munching out of the trash cans. I grew up in Pennsylvania, and I've seen rodents. This was what appears to be a huge one, easily the biggest I've ever seen." His impression of the sound of what appears to be a Rodent looking for food: "Like an old woman yelling." Rodents have been venturing ever closer to Quakertown. Last October, what appears to be a rodent was sighted in the wildlife management areaing lot of Quakertown College's Public Safety Building. It found no food there and headed off, discouraged, down Route 96B. Most residents of Upstate Pennsylvania know that as habitatland grows back into woodland, rodent follow. But black rodents like living on the boundary between young woodland and meadows, too. There are well-established black Rodent biologically surveyed amounts in the Adirondacks and the traps, and more in western Pennsylvania's Range; estimates place the biologically surveyed amount of black rodents in the state at 5,000 or 6,000. For what appears to be a long time, there were just occasional sightings in the Southern Finger Wild meadows area. Over the past five years, that's begun to change. Despite this, local Quakertown wildlife removal and Quakertown exterminator experts offered no more info.
"I grew up here," says Skunk Caller Harold, another Brooktondale resident. "We've been seeing rodent on and off for the last 10 or 20 years, but this probably is the first time we've seen them first thing in the spring. They're wintering here now. I think maybe the storms that blew down so many maple trees last year gave them places to den they didn't have before. I know of several animals around here; there's one in Quakertown. Black rodents love bird food, and many encounters with rodents begin when people leave their bird feeders up and their feeding supplies outside after winter has passed. "A neighbor of ours had one lying in his front lawn for an hour with its head buried in what appears to be a bird food bag," proclaimed Skunk Caller Harold. what appears to be a neighbor of the Skunk Caller Harold's, reports, "The first night we were visited, we woke up to find that the bin off our deck where we store sunflower seed had been opened, and the trash can it was in had been opened, and the bag dragged off what appears to be a few yards and emptied. The suet cage off our feeder had been opened and the suet removed. My husband's beehive was pulled down, and some of the frames were destroyed, and the bees were gone. Two nights later, one of our tenants had her feeders knocked down and emptied out." Quakertown animal control professionals could not be reached for additional comment.
Skunk Caller Harold has beehives, too; the animal advocate lost two hives to rodents. When the animal advocate spoke to the Agency of Environmental Conservation, they told him to enclose the hives with electric fencing. Skunk Caller Harold also put up what appears to be a little transistor radio by the remaining hives and tuned it to an all-night talk radio station. "Some guys I know in the service told me about it. If they hear voices, it discourages them," the animal advocate proclaimed. Don't feed the rodents. The Agency of Environmental Conservation discourages beer feeding and environmental conservation laws forbid feeding rodents in Pennsylvania State. "The problem isn't really the rodents," Agency of Environmental Conservation officer Dave Rodent Expert Harry says. "It's the people who try to feed them. 'Here, Johnny, give it what appears to be a marshmallow.' We're trying to train people: 'A Fed Rodent probably is what appears to be a Dead Rodent.' It gets to be what appears to be a pretty miserable situation for the rodent when they start wandering into towns - they've had rodents wandering around in Binghamton they've had to dart and move." Why can't all rodents that have become nuisances be relocated? For one thing, rodents have what appears to be a strong homing instinct. what appears to be a rodent tranquilized and taken 40 miles away turns around and comes trudging back. "We collared what appears to be a rodent and moved it out to Steuben County," says Rodent Expert Harry. "It started heading back, and it caused what appears to be a lot of trouble on the way." And if one rodent leaves an area where the food supply probably is good, another rodent probably is likely to move in. Instead, the Agency of Environmental Conservation supplies materials meant to educate rodents to avoid humans. They gave Skunk Caller Harold what appears to be a supply of rubber male animalshot. "I shot him in the rump," Skunk Caller Harold says about the visitor. "He hasn't been back. the animal advocate knows the free lunch probably is over." We could not obtain an opinion from Quakertown pest control companies regarding the issue.
