What is the purpose of Wildlife Control?

Wildlife management or nuisance wildlife management refers to the practice of selective or systematic removal of certain species of wildlife that has become destructive, threatening, or threat to human health.
The most frequent nuisance wildlife include opossums, squirrels, rats, mice, raccoons, pigeons, snakes, skunks, and bats. These animals pose a threat to human health since they carry disease-causing ticks, lice, viruses and germs. Among the best ways to eliminate or relocate them is to seek the help of a professional wildlife control and removal service.
Much like people and all animals, wildlife deserves a place on this planet. But since they are among the most common carriers of diseases, they have to be eliminated to keep people safe. Here’s a list of nuisance animals that are potential carriers of zoonotic diseases when they invade houses: Raccoon Rabies is a deadly viral disease that attacks a man who’s bitten by a rabid animal. Raccoon roundworms are parasitic worms that a person could undergo accidental inhalation or ingestion of raccoon feces that contain parasite eggs. This may lead to larval migration into the central nervous system and it can lead to damage to the eye and brain tissues.
Liptospirosis, on the other hand is a bacterial disease that animals pass on to people through contact with infected urine. Individuals who suffer from liptospirosis experience fever, shivering, vomiting, dehydration, meningitis, renal failure and kidney damage.
Salmonella is a bacterium that can cause food poisoning.

Squirrels are not notorious carriers of zoonotic diseases, but they have a potential to infect humans because of their droppings which could carry liptospirosis and salmonella bacteria.

Skunks are not known carriers of disease-causing organisms. They simply become a nuisance when they intrude human dwellings. Their burrowing, feeding, and protection customs become a menace when they do it in basements, garages, and other places in people’s homes.
4. Rats
Rats became infamous when they brought bubonic plague that caused thousands of deaths in Europe from the middle ages. Other diseases that rats may transmit to humans include rat-bite fever, ricketsia, eosinophilic meningitis (an infection of the brain), leptospirosis, and salmonella-related sicknesses. Birds
The bird that has the highest potential to invade houses is pigeons. They aren’t known to carry and transmit zoonotic diseases but their droppings can become a host to a kind of fungus that can cause histoplasmosis, a flu-like disease characterized by fever, chills, joint pains, chest pain, and mouth sores. This can happen when a person inhales the spores of this fungus that grow on pigeon droppings.
