Their feces, guano, allow the growth of histoplasmosis fungus. This fungus causes severe respiratory issues in humans. A bats scent is strong, and even if they leave the attic or chimney it will be attractive to other bats to roost there as well.

Rats

DISEASES CARRIED: SALMONELLOSIS, LEPTOSPIROSIS

Rats are classified as a pest species. Common complaints about rats are infesting attics, scratching walls, raiding food sources, and gnawing on electrical. However, the most significant issue are the health risks. Once rats begin nesting, they usually stay, which is why trapping is the most effective of ridding an establishment of these nuisances. Rats constant chewing and gnawing create fire hazards, and their urine and feces can spread diseases and cause respiratory issues.

Snakes

DISEASES CARRIED: NONE, BUT BITES CAN BE VENOMOUS

The U.S. is home to a variety of snakes, the majority of which are not dangerous. Specifically, Florida houses 44 species of non-venomous snakes, along with 6 known venomous species. Both types of snakes share similar habitats, preferring dark, damp areas. They can sometimes be found occupying deserted nests or burrows of other small animals, due to their proximity to rodent or insect populations. In rural areas, these snakes often reside in yards or properties, finding shelter under homes or decks, in swimming pools, or occasionally, indoors.

Non-venomous snakes, despite being harmless, can produce a painful puncture wound when they bite. A distinguishing feature of these snakes is their round pupils. On the other hand, the bite of a venomous snake can be lethal if not promptly treated. Identifying venomous vipers is critical and can be done by noticing their triangle-shaped heads and the pits between their eyes and nostrils.

Birds

DISEASES CARRIED: HISTOPLASMOSIS, CRYPTOCOCCUS, TOXOPLAMOSIS, PIGEON ORNITHOSIS, ENCEPHALITIS, SALMONELLAS, CHLAMYDIOSIS, COCCIDIOSIS, ERYSPELIOD, NEWCASTLE’S, PARATHYPOID, PULLORUM, TRANSMISSABLE GASTROENTERITIS, TUBERCULOSIS, VIBROSIS, YERSINOSIS, ACARIASIS, SCHISTOSOMIASIS, TAENIASIS, TRICHOMONIASIS.

Bird damage in affected areas cannot only be a nuisance, but become very hazardous. Addtional to the long list of diseases, birds also carry fleas, lice, mites and ticks. They often defecate in attics, sidewalks, driveways, or picnic tables- and it is their urine and feces that cause humans to be at risk to lethal, airborne sicknesses.

Ducks

DISEASES CARRIED: NONE HARMFUL TO HUMANS.
RAISE RISK OF RESPIRATORY ISSUES

The danger of ducks is the feces left behind. Feces and urine in an attic can cause respiratory problems. They often defecate on docks, pools, pool decks, and sidewalks. Because of the health risks ducks can cause this can be an overwhelming amount of mess to clean every day.
Usually if there is a duck or ducks in an attic it is a Muscovy duck. If one is bitten by a this animal there is no need to worry, their bite is not life threatening.

Pigeons

DISEASES CARRIED: HISTOPLASMOSIS, CRYPTOCOCCOSIS

Pigeons, particularly feral or city pigeons, can cause problems with their droppings, leading to potential respiratory issues. They frequent urban areas, leaving waste on public spaces like parks, statues, and cars. This buildup not only tarnishes aesthetics but also presents a daily cleaning challenge due to health risks. Pigeon pecks or scratches aren’t life-threatening, but cleaning any wound properly is advised to prevent secondary infections.

Moles

DISEASES CARRIED: RABIES (RARE)

Moles are destructive! They love to dig through yards and eat various plants under ground. They can and will destroy yards, lawns, and gardens in very little time. Moles can carry rabies, but it is very rare.

Opossums

DISEASES CARRIED: LEPTOSPIROSIS, TUBERCULOSIS, COCCIDIOSIS, SPOTTED FEVER, TULAREMIA

Opossums are hosts to ticks, lice, fleas, and mites, as well as other diseases. They put dogs and cats at risk and occasionally are known to attack pets and sometimes humans. Opossums can do significant damage. They destroy duct work, rip apart electrical wiring, and ruin dry wall. Their urine and feces transmit an unbearable scent. The risk of illness and property destruction from opossums is cause for immediate trapping and removal.

Feral Cats

DISEASES CARRIED: CAT-SCRATCH FEVER, RABIES

Feral cats usually occupy places in high numbers. They often fight and spray, posing threats to domesticated pets. They rummage through garbage, carry fleas, and can possibly spread diseases and parasites.
DO NOT FEED FERAL CATS

Bees

DISEASES CARRIED: NONE HARMFUL TO HUMANS

Bees usually nest in trees and logs, but when having access to homes, they can construct hives in attics, walls, and crawlspaces. Ground-dwelliing bees will dig tunnels and lay eggs within dry and undisturbed soil. Since bees have a very important role in our environment, it is vital to relocate rather than destroying their hives.

TRY REMOVING FLOWERS LIKE SUNFLOWERS, GOLDENROD, CLOVERS, AND CONE FLOWERS FROM YOUR LANDSCAPING OR GARDEN TO DETER BEES.

Armadillos

DISEASES CARRIED: LEPROSY

Armadillos love to dig. They can create large tunnels throughout a lawn or yard, and burrow under houses causing structural damage. They can crack concrete, destroy pipelines, and uproot landscaping. The main concerns with this animal are the structural damage that they cause, however, they are also the only known animal susceptible to Hansen’s disease (leprosy).

Gophers

DISEASES CARRIED: HANTAVIRUS, LEPTOSPIROSIS, PLAGUE, LCM

Damage from gophers is extensive. They burrow into lawns or yards, producing large dirt mounds, and their feeding habits can destroy gardens in very little time. You can find up to 50 gophers or more in heavily infested areas.

Feral Hogs

DISEASES CARRIED: BRUCELLOSIS.
CAN CAUSE CROP DAMAGE AND ECOLOGICAL ISSUES

Feral hogs, often associated with rural and farming areas, pose significant threats to crops, property, and local ecosystems due to their destructive foraging habits. They uproot vegetation and farmland, leading to substantial agricultural losses. Their wallowing behaviors also contribute to soil erosion and can degrade water quality.

Feral hogs can carry diseases transmissible to humans, including brucellosis, posing health risks. If encountered, these animals can be aggressive, but attacks on humans are relatively rare. While their behavior is not typically life-threatening, caution is always advised when in their presence.”

Animal Carcasses

DISEASES CARRIED: POTENTIALLY HARMFUL TO HUMANS.
MAY ATTRACT UNWANTED PESTS

Dead animal carcasses, whether found in the wilderness or within urban spaces, pose several risks. They can be a source of harmful bacteria and disease, some of which are transmissible to humans. These diseases can range from mild food poisoning to severe ones like botulism.

Carcasses can attract scavengers and pests such as flies, rats, and other vermin, escalating the potential for disease spread. The smell of decomposition can also be overwhelmingly unpleasant, contributing to poor air quality. Direct contact with a dead animal isn’t typically life-threatening but can lead to health problems. Thus, it’s important to handle such situations with proper care, using protective equipment and following sanitary disposal practices.
