There are times when you won’t want to call in a pest management company because you are dealing with furry critters around the home and don’t want to see them killed. If you are an animal lover yet burdened with mouse droppings or have another type of animal dwelling in your home, being responsible for its death may not be an option for you. The good news is that many pest control companies have a way to deal with small animals without hurting them.
In order to find out what methods are going to be used on these tiny animals you simply need to call up a pest control company and ask. Tell them your concerns and find out if they have a way of trapping the animals and then setting them free. In most cases the answer will be yes and you’ll be able to get rid of your problem without having to feel like a murderer.
While many people feel that mice should be trapped and killed, you may not be of the same mindset. It is important, however, to get these mice out of your home since they can easily bring in diseases that you do not want to expose yourself or your family to.
Mice droppings are actually considered to be dangerous because they can carry the Hantavirus, which can be a serious health threat. It can even be deadly if it’s not attended to properly by a physician. Other small rodents can also be carrying this virus so it is important to deal with them as quickly as possible.
The most common carrier of Hantavirus is the deer mouse. Although not every mouse will be carrying this virus, you cannot tell by the droppings whether they are infected or not. When handling the droppings you should wear rubber gloves and disinfect the area thoroughly afterwards.
Other animals like skunks, raccoons, groundhogs etc. can decide to make a home inside your home or along the outside edges to get warmth. These animals can also be harboring diseases that you’ll want to avoid. That is why it is so important to get these animals away from your home.
When you need to get rid of these furry animals but don’t want to see them killed, look for the best of both worlds. Call up a pest management company and see if they have a more humane way of dealing with these critters. In many cases the company will have something put in place that keeps both you and these animals happy.
