Oregon is full of wildlife, including snakes, squirrels, raccoons, skunks, opossums, and more. Wildlife removal is a complex field. I recommend professional Salem wildlife control services if you want to solve a critter problem legally and correctly. For example, we specialize in animals in the attic, which have broken into the house and almost always have a nest of baby animals. It is necessary to perform correct preventative repairs to keep pest animals a out of your house for good. We perform full building inspection, do the the repairs and we also offer attic decontamination if necessary. Rats and mice love to live in attics, and can chew wires or leave droppings. In fact Salem wildlife frequently enter homes, and correct removal is not a simple task.

County Animal ServicesDOG or CAT: If you need assistance with a domestic animal, such as a dog or a cat, you need to call your local Marion County Animal Services for assistance. They can help you out with issues such as stray dogs, stray cats, vaccinations, licenses, pet adoption, lost pets, and more. If you have a wildlife problem, you can try calling the Marion County animal services, and see what they have to say, but they will certainly not help you with a complex wildlife problem such as critters in your attic. They are a free government agency that helps with dog and cat issues only.

Salem Wildlife Tip:
Are Opossum Feces Dangerous To Touch Or Breathe?

The opossum feces are a base for disease causing germs; therefore, you have to be aware of the potential risk if you come into contact with the substance either by touching it or breathing it in.

Generally, possum droppings are the same as that of a house cat or other small animals. The size ranges from 1 to 3 inches long, and they are tapered with a pointy end. Opossum droppings are visible on paths or near feeding zones. You might find the droppings close to your garbage bin or near your favorite berry tree. With a slightly shiny, hazy appearance, the color ranges from dark browns to red.

The nastiest feature associated with opossum feces is the smell, especially when it is combined with urine! This is the main reason that you want a prompt cleaning of that area. The feces have some unwanted features. The substance contains nauseating bacteria and is a source of illness. Leptospirosis and Salmonella is the genre of bacteria that is found on these feces. It is known to cause pathologies in some animals like horses. The diseases found in the feces may generate neurological disorders. This is because of EPM - equine protozoa myelo encephalitis. Toxoplasmosis is a disease that can make cats and humans drastically ill.

The disease-carrying germs on feces can cause permanent mutilation and disability in humans if they contract it either by touching it or breathing near it. The Bairns dale ulcers are basically skin ulcers, especially on the arms and legs. The World Health Organization has reported that this organism belongs to the same family of culprit bacteria causing Leprosy and tuberculosis. The infection is manifested as a painless pimple causing an irritating itch and ultimately transforming into an ulcer. The ulcer is curable in early sages but if not treated, it can lead to disability. The treatment is complex. Long term use of antibiotics is necessary and it may go to a surgery if left untreated.

Several reports have proven that opossum feces are highly contaminated and therefore it is better to stay away from it. If you do come into contact with the poop of an opossum, adopt the following strategies to stay safe. Remove all droppings; it is better to throw away all the soiled insulation. Spray the area with a special enzyme-based cleanser to eradicate the feces while removing the nasty smell. Repair damages where there is a chance of left droppings. Immediately contact your medical practitioner.
