Many of Virginia'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 Virginia'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 Chesterfield 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 Midlothian animal control for wildlife issues.

Midlothian Wildlife Removal Tip: What diseases do pigeons carry?

We have all heard that pigeon feces carry a multitude of diseases; if you come into contact with any sort of pigeon excrement you should immediately wash your hands. The problem with that is that you don't always have to come into contact with the birds, or their feces to be exposed to the disease. The most common way in which these diseases are spread is by the dry dust from the feces that become airborne. You then breathe it in or it ends up in your food.

1. Histoplasmosis. This is a respiratory disease that is caused by the fungus that grows on untreated bird feces. It is especially prevalent in humid areas; it is not overly dangerous if just confined to the lungs, but can be life threatening if it spreads throughout the body.
2. Cryptococcosis. This is another fungus that grows on pigeon feces. It is relatively harmless unless the person exposed is immunocompromised.
3. Salmonellosis. This disease spreads through food that has been contaminated by the dust that comes from dried feces.
4. E. coli. This is probably the most well-known and common infection that is spread by pigeon feces. Most people have some sort of E. coli present in their system; however, it could cause gastroenteritis if the infection gets worse.
5. Psittacosis. It is caused by breathing in the feces of infected birds.
6. Cryptococcal Meningitis. It is thought to be spread by breathing in soil that has been contaminated by pigeon droppings. It is an infection that causes inflammation of the membranes that cover the spinal cord and brain.

There are also some diseases that are less prevalent, but may still affect a portion of the population.

1. Candidiasis. This is a fungal infection that affects the skin, mouth and respiratory system. They can also infect the genitals.
2. St. Louis Encephalitis. The disease is spread by mosquitos that bite the birds and become infected with the disease, the mosquitos then bite people and can spread the disease to them.
3. West Nile Virus. This disease is generally spread by infected mosquitos, but if an infected mosquito bites a pigeon then they disease will spread to the pigeon. If the pigeon is bitten by a mosquito the disease will infect them and they will spread it to people.

Apart from these diseases, pigeons also spread ectoparasites. These are parasites that are carried on the outside of the host; they can be spread from pigeons to the environment that they come into contact with.

1. Bed bugs. These little critters can live in your mattress and consume up to five times its own weight in blood.
2. Chicken mites. These bugs are not just found on chickens, they have been found on pigeons. They are known to be carriers of encephalitis.
3. Yellow mealworms. These cause tapeworms than live inside the bowels of people.
