We a complete job, from start to finish. We remove wildlife humanely and effectively, using the proper traps, tools, and techniques for each unique animal and situation.
When we encounter animals inside a house, we inspect every part of the house, from ground level to every part of the roof, to identify all the areas of entry, and all vulnerable
areas, and we perform professional repairs, with guarantee, to seal entry holes shut. We inspect inside the attic to find any damage or biohazard, and provide full cleaning services. We offer attic decontamination, poison-free and permanent rodent control,
bat colony exclusion, bird prevention, snake removal, dead animal removal and odor control, and more.
South Bend's wildlife can be unpredictable

arises, causing them to seek shelter in your
home or shed. If you find yourself in this

Wild animal diseases
Wild animal diseases that can affect human beings are called zoonotic diseases, these are diseases that you can get
if you handle a wild animal, its feces or anything else it has come into physical contact with.
The list of diseases that can be passed from animals to humans is quite short:
1. leptospirosis, from skunks, raccoons and opossums mainly
2. brucellosis, from white tailed deer, foxes, raccoons and many other animals
3. bubonic plague, thought to come from fleas that live on rats mostly
4. psittacosos, from birds only
5. salmonellosis, mostly from birds and reptiles
6. tularemia, from rodents
7. rabies, any mammal but mostly carnivores
8. giardiasis, from beaver, muskrat and waterfowl
9. lyme disease, ticks that use deer, mice, squirrels, weasels and bats as hosts
There are a whole other series of diseases you can get if you get bitten by an animal or if you eat a carcass
that is not properly cooked. These vary from tetanus to hantavirus, the latter can be fatal. Hantavirus you can
only get if you get bitten by rodents but of course there are plenty of rodents running around in the United States
so the best solution is to make sure you do not get bitten. There are also a whole series of diseases you can get from
parasites that live on wild animals, ticks and fleas being the most obvious.
There are many many many different diseases that affect wildlife in the wild, some of them can affect humans and some
can also affect our pets, these diseases are generally broken down into the following categories:
• bacterial diseases
• fungal diseases
• viral diseases
• parasitic diseases
• bio toxins
• chemical toxins
• miscellaneous diseases
Under each of those categories there is a list of actual diseases like duck plague under viral diseases which obviously
ducks can get, this does not affect humans or our pets but is a wildlife animal disease. There are many many many hundreds
of these individual diseases, far too many to even attempt to list here, if you want you can get a copy of the field manual
of wildlife diseases from the USGS national wildlife health Center page, it is 43 MB in size and covers every single last
disease known by the US Department of the Interior and the US geological survey. From all the information the main disease
you need to avoid is rabies, so any mammal doing weird things is best avoided.
