So, you removed the animals from the attic, but are you finished yet?
Unfortunately wildlife in your attic can create problems that many homeowners never think of and most can’t imagine. The nesting animals can carry ectoparasites, which after the wildlife (host) is evicted, may move inside the home looking for a new host; that would include you, and your family.
Bat Bugs (similar to bed bugs), mites, ticks and fleas are just some of these parasites of concern.
In addition, we often see attics that are completely contaminated with animal feces from squirrels, raccoons, bats or mice infestations. In many of these cases the feces and urine deposits can create strong odors which can be hazardous and make the home unsafe and unhealthy for humans. More information regarding diseases spread from animal excrement and parasites can be found here: http://www.icwdm.o
The scent of the previous infestation will also attract new animals looking for a suitable home. We often see attics with no previous animal history, becoming the target of new animal break ins. Nuisance wildlife can be very opportunistic and will look for an easy and safe target.
