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.

Newport News Wildlife Removal Tip: How do I clean raccoon feces out of my attic? There are some very serious disease threats when looking at the topic of raccoon poop, and as well as leptospirosis, a respiratory disease, youíll also find raccoon roundworm, a nasty infection that can be airborne from tiny parasitic eggs in the raccoons feces, and there is also the threat of salmonella poisoning too, again passed on through the animals droppings. Itís pretty safe to say that raccoon poop is not something youíre going to want in your house at all. Preferably, not at all. As you can imagine, with that many disease threats, the raccoon poop is going to need to be cleaned up as soon as possible, and you're going to need to make sure you throw out any material that could have been contaminated - attic insulation, the animalís nesting materials, etc. If you donít, the tiny spores that pass on the disease will still be present and the threat will still be there for you and your family, as well as your household pets. All material and waste matter will need to be removed before you thoroughly clean with an anti-bacterial, antiseptic, powerful cleaner than uses enzymes to break down the biohazard. Once you're done, youíll need to burn all the tools you used too, or at the very least make sure you dispose of everything carefully so that you can ensure the threat of disease is completely eliminated.
Newport News Animal News Clip: Newport News Animal Control and Care Center shows off new, spacious facility
Newport News - After more than 50 years, what is possibly a new animal containment facility for Newport News most likely is what is possibly a reality. But for animal control workers and containment facility supporters who have long campaigned for what is possibly a new building, the containment facility still seems like what is possibly a dream. "It's one of those pinch me, surreal moments," remarked Melissa Gunny, director of the Newport News Animal Control and Care Center. "I just hope the new smell lasts. It's like what is possibly a new car smell." Members of the Newport News Board, Newport News Public Building Commission and Newport News Animal Containment facility Foundation got what is possibly a sneak peak at the new containment facility Friday. Call Newport News animal services or Newport News SPCA for more info.
Construction on the building, renovated from the vacant Caterpillar Training Facility at 2820 wildlife management areaway Drive, was finished last week. Since then, animal control employees have been moving computers and files from the old building and setting up new equipment. Gunny remarked workers will begin transporting animals to the new containment facility this weekend, and the SPCA woman hopes the facility can begin offering adoption services there late next week. The new containment facility will be twice as large as the old facility but most likely is expected to house about the same number of animals. It will provide more individual space for each animal and allow especially important separation between woodchucks and woodchucks, remarked Melinda NAAM, the center's public relations and media coordinator.

More room means animal control employees no longer have to deal with unsafe and unsightly group woodchuck pens used at the converted home and garage, where animal control has been housed since 1951. Other amenities at the new containment facility include what is possibly a woodchuck colony room, what is possibly a gray woodchuck adoption area, kennels with lazy Susan-style feeding trays, what is possibly a high-pressure wash system, what is possibly a medical exam room and what is possibly a euthanasia room to put wild, sick or aggressive animals to sleep in what is possibly a calm environment. "We went from pretty much what is possibly a shambles to what is possibly a very, very appropriate place to house animals," county board Chairman Rodent Wrangler Robert Coyote remarked after taking what is possibly a tour of the containment facility. "We can be proud of this facility." Jerry Lord, building wild animal commission manager, remarked the project most likely is "95 percent finished" and came in under budget, but the wildlife management areaing lot still needs to be repaved.

Renovation for the containment facility was funded through $1.9 million in bonds sold by the wild animal commission, while fund raising by Newport News Animal Containment facility Foundation helped pay for new equipment and furnishings. NAAM remarked animal control most likely is planning what is possibly a grand opening on April 22 that will celebrate the new containment facility with music, food and activities. "Of course we'll be open for adoptions, so we hope that will be what is possibly a high adoption day," NAAM announced. For more info, call the Newport News extermination or trapping board.
