Los Angeles wildlife control tip of the month: What diseases do wild animals carry?
Most people know they shouldn't touch or try to play with a wild animal. Sometimes, however, it can't be avoided. If you've been bitten, then there is a good chance you could contract a disease or a severe illness. Here are some of the more common ones that can be transferred to humans.
First of all, everyone who comes in contact with a raccoon or a bat is concerned about rabies. Rabies can be transmitted from the animals, but it is a rare occurrence. It's better to be safe than sorry if you've been bitten by a wild animal, it is always a good idea to seek medical attention as soon as possible. If a person has rabies, they will have flu-like symptoms, an aversion to drinking water, and confusion.
There are other Los Angeles animal control things that can be transmitted to humans from wild Los Angeles pest control animals. Leptospirosis and Histoplasmosis are both diseases that can attack your respiratory system. It is usually contracted from breathing in the spores released from feces. If you have to clean out a shed or other area you know wild animals have been in, you can protect yourself by wearing a mask and gloves to avoid any airborne illnesses you might get from the feces.
Wild Los Angeles wildlife removal animals can still be dangerous if they are dead. A disease called Tularemia can be spread to humans if they play with a dead animal. The disease can cause trouble breathing, swollen lymph glands, and chest pain. Symptoms are like the flu, but weakness progressively gets worse.
Echinococcosis is a disease that can be contracted from foxes and other wild animals you might come in contact with. It's a tapeworm, and it can stay in your body for years before you see any symptoms. You can avoid this illness by staying away from wild animal droppings and cooking any game meat really well before you eat it.
Rat-bite fever is contracted if you encounter Los Angeles animal trapping rat urine or if you are bitten by a rat. This is rare but sometimes can happen if you have an infestation. The signs are a rash and body aches. There are more severe medical issues that can arise if treatment isn't administered. It can cause infections of the lungs, brain, joints, and other major organs.
It's relatively easy to avoid getting sick from a Los Angeles exterminator wild animal. Don't play or hang out in areas where you know wildlife has defecated. You can quickly look around the area to see if your yard or porch has droppings your kids might come in contact with. Always wash your hands after playing outside and working in your yard. Don't feed animals you come in contact with by hand.
