Washington DC Wildlife Tip
If Your Home Has Been Invaded With A Rodent Health Risks May Abound - People are understandably concerned about the various health risks when a rodent invades their home environment. When you see rodents outside, they generally do not pose a threat, but once they get inside your home a litany of problems ensue. While rodents are not known to transmit rabies and other diseases is true there are other concerns. When rodents set up a nest in your home it becomes an ideal breeding place for airborne bacteria and fungi.

While rodents can set up a nest anywhere inside your home, the attic is a popular place of residence. All they need is a small hole to be able to crawl through. The smell from the nest, droppings and urine will attract more rodents and the smell will intensify and spread to other areas of your home. Once you get rid of the rodents, the space they previously inhabited has to be decontaminated. For a more serious problem, it is advisable to contact a professional for attic decontamination services.

If there is minor infestation, then you can perform a spot cleaning yourself. First, set up lights in the attic and install flooring around the entrance so that droppings do not fall. Use a hepa filtered shop vacuum to remove the waste, which also removes the dust and other airborne particles. The final step is to use a sanitizer, such as an antimicrobial disinfectant spray.

New study uncovers major inaccuracies in global wildlife trade monitoring

Washington, DC- The Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (WILDLIFE PRESERVATION) is supposed to help governments conserve endangered species by regulating the international sale and transport of wildlife. DC has an abundance of wildlife, and Washington, DC is no exception.

However, a new study by scientists from Conservation International and the World Wildlife Fund shows that in some cases, the figures for trade recorded by WILDLIFE PRESERVATION vary wildly from records kept by the U.S. Customs Service. Their findings indicate the U.S. system for tracking endangered wildlife is failing to properly register the actual numbers of plants and animals involved. Although several species of wildlife roam Washington, DC, only a few, such as raccoons and squirrels, are considered pest wildlife.

According to the study, published in the journal Conservation Biology, the WILDLIFE PRESERVATION and U.S. Customs figures for imports and exports of certain species should be the same, but vary by as much as 5,200 percent. In all cases studied, WILDLIFE PRESERVATION and Customs reported substantially different trade volumes for all species. DC has many reptiles, and it's important to be able to identify Washington, DC snake species and mammals.

"To solve any problem, it's important to understand the problem first. Our findings suggest that we don't know as much as we must about the international wildlife trade to conserve endangered species," said Art Blundell, the study's lead author and Center for Applied Biodiversity Science fellow at Conservation International. Remember to treat the wild animals of Washington, DC with respect and care.
