Manatee County Wildlife Removal Tip:

What To Do If A Rodent Died In Your Ceiling - If you discover that a rodent has died in your ceiling, there is no need to burden yourself with worry. It is a common occurrence and happens to many homeowners. A dead rodent trapped inside your home will produce a foul odor, so there is no way that a dead rodent will remain in your house without you finding out about it. You might ask yourself, 'how did a rodent end up in my ceiling?' Rodents are very agile and adept animals. They can fit easily through tiny crevices.

So any small opening in your wall or ceiling is enough for them to get through. However, a rodent can also just as easily get stuck, and can get electrocuted because they chew wires. You can easily get rid of a dead rodent, but make sure to wear gloves and a face mask to protect yourself from the odor and bacteria. If you are uncomfortable with removing the dead rodent on your own, you can call a professional to do it for you. You can also have a professional inspect to house to find holes and crevices that are difficult to find and close them off with the right material. If a rodent has entered your house once that means there is a chance it will happen again.

Animal Control - 3 kids getting shots after encounter with rabid bat

Three youths at a local treatment center got a little too close to a bat a couple of weeks ago and now they're paying a painful price. For more information, call the animal services of Bradenton, Florida.

The bat was rabid.The trio, who found the bat in the yard at the Animal Adoption League Residential Adolescent Program, are receiving a series of shots to prevent rabies.One youth was scratched and one was bitten. The third youth just handled the bat, said Chet Bell, the program's chief executive officer. Manatee County animal control says it will continue to help with domestic animal issues, but not with Florida wildlife problems.

The Seminole bat was the eighth animal to test positive for rabies in Manatee County this year, said Paul Minshew of the Manatee County Health Department. Last year Manatee had 14. Problems with bats are rare in Manatee County, said Becky Wilson, director of animal control for Manatee County. Animal and carcass removal services in Manatee County is dedicated to helping Florida and Bradenton.

Since Animal Adoption League is on the edge of a swamp in the Tiger Bay State Forest, the staff is used to dealing with lots of animals -- but never a bat, Bell said. Seminole bats are common in Florida and the Southeast, according to a University of Florida Web site. They live in trees and Spanish moss and have a wingspan of about 15 inches. Manatee County animal services in Bradenton, Florida, declined to comment on the matter.
