Animals and Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) 

Animals and Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)

 

The corona Viruses are a large family of viruses that can cause cold-like illnesses in people while others cause illness in animals such as bats, canine and feline animals. This could happen with raccoons and squirrels, which hasn’t been confirmed yet, but why take the chance. Some of these viruses that infect animals have become able to infect humans and be spread to people but this is rare. We learn more every day about the new strain of Corona virus and how it can transfer from animals to humans on the CDC Website here.

At NewYork/NewJersey Wildlife Removal, Inc. we recommend you remove any wildlife from your home immediately for many health reasons, including the remote possibility of Coronavirus. We just don’t know enough at this point to take unnecessary risks. You can rest assured that New York/New Jersey Wildlife Removal, Inc. takes a planned approach and all possible precautions for your safety, and for safe removal of wildlife from your home. Our homeowners and their safety is our priority. We use Sporicidin disinfectant solution used by hospitals to kill a broad spectrum  of pathogenic vegetative organisms including Coronavirus (SARs virus), MRSA, and VRE Avian Influenza A Virus (H9N2 and H1N1). We can remove wildlife from outside of your home without ever entering. In these uncertain times don’t leave animals lurking in and around your home that can possibly make you sick. Call us right away. 1-888-928-2668

Animals Returning for the Spring

Spring is right around the corner. With warmer weather and longer days ahead, hibernating animals are awakening; and birds are flying back home. As the breeding season begins, how can you protect your home animal invasion?

Hibernation Season is Over

Animals like squirrels and groundhogs are coming out of their winter slumber. These animals are going to be active, and looking for food. Budding garden plants are often one of the first targets for groundhogs. This burst of active animals waking from their hibernation can become a hassle for your yard.

Breeding Season

Most animals in our region breed in the spring, and will look for shelter that can accommodate the new litter. Often, the best form of this shelter is man-made structures. Attics, crawlspaces, and sheds are often ideal locations for animals to find shelter.

Returning Birds

Birds are returning from their southern migration. As they do, new nests may be built, and in new locations. Chimneys, gutters, sheds, attics and trees in your yard may be a new nesting spot for returning birds.

Yard Cleanup

Spring yard work helps cut down on potential hideouts for wild animals. Trimming bushes, removing debris, and maintaining your garden are important for reducing the chance that animals will move in. Clean out gutters of debris that can weigh them down. Heavy gutters can create cracks in the eaves where animals can access the inside of your home. Chimneys and vents are also potential hideouts for critters.

Spring Repairs

Winter weather can cause damage to your home, which can create openings for animal invaders. Damage to the roof, gutters, siding, and more are opportunities for animals to break into your home. If you notice damage to the exterior of your home, hire a professional and licensed service to repair damages.
