Animal Removal & Your Health

When you have an animal problem or insect infestation in your home, not only are you concerned about the potential damage it can cause to your property, but also health risks that could result in severe illness. There are a variety of issues to be aware of when encountering and handling animals, such as diseases and health risks. Animals can serve as natural hosts for specific diseases that affect humans.

If you have an animal problem or insect infestation in your home, the following are directly transmitted animal diseases you can encounter:

  • Rabies – Rhabdovirus that is carried by certain carnivorous mammals, as well as bats.
  • Hantavirus – Fatal disease from rodent bites or ingesting excrement.
  • Trichinosis – Illness from eating meat which is infected with the trichinella worm.
  • Brucellosis – Infectious disease caused by bacteria transmitted through contact with an infected animal or contaminated object.
  • Encephalitis – Virus transmitted between animals and mosquitoes.
  • Baylisascaris – Infection caused by the parasite or roundworm found in raccoon intestines.
  • Rat-bite Fever – Streptobacillus moniliformis bacteria found on rat teeth and gums.
  • Salmonellosis – Salmonella bacteria from contaminated food from rat or mouse feces.
  • Histoplasmosis – Respiratory disease caught from breathing in spores spread by the wind, often derived from bird roosts, poultry farms, and enclosed buildings where bats and birds have roosted.
  • Q Fever – A disease caused by the bacteria Coxiella burnetii, commonly found in milk, droppings, and urine of infected animals.
