What problems do wildlife cause?

Most of the calls we get are because homeowners hear animals scurrying around inside the attic or walls. Most of the damage inside a houes or attic is unseen. Rodents like squirrels, mice, and rats often chew on electrical wires. Wildlife such as raccoons, bats, birds, opossums, and rats spread several diseases that humans can and do catch, such as Histoplasmosis, Salmonella, Leptospirosis and more. Many critters leave droppings and urine in an attic or cause mold or odor problems. We also handle animals outside the house. It could be a critter that has dug a large hole next to your house, or a raccoon in your garbage cans, an opossum that is stealing pet food, or a skunk living under your deck, causing an odor problem. Some animals destroy your garden or landscaping. Or perhaps you are simply scared of snakes. Whatever the problem is, our wildlife experts can remove the source of the problem, and prevent it from happening again. We are not a Colorado Springs extermination company, nor pest control.

Gophers Living Alongside People In Urban And Rural Areas

Many people will see the gopher as a pest that will need to be eradicated, and it is true to say that they can be problematic in domestic gardens. Their habit of burrowing can cause problems in many different areas, and agricultural land is also badly affected. They are usually herbivores and will eat many different types of plants and roots. The gopher can also be quite territorial, as they will each have their own area that they will stay in unless there is a specific change that will force them to move elsewhere.

Can Gophers Be Dangerous To Humans?
One of the biggest issues that will concern humans about gophers is whether or not they can transmit disease, both to people and to any domestic pets that may come into contact with the gopher. A concern that has been raised recently is that of bubonic plague, which is a condition found in a gopher in a Canadian park in 2010, but the reality is that this plague is very unlikely to be transmitted from a gopher to humans. One of the conditions that is more likely to be transmitted to humans from gophers is Tularemia, which is usually carried in the fleas and ticks that can attach themselves to the animals. For this reason it is best to wash thoroughly after handling or coming into contact with a gopher.

As a rule gophers will not actively seek a confrontation with Colorado Springs rat control people, and even if they do come across people they will often look to flee. They can be defensive about their burrow however, and with the large front teeth that are typical of this type of rodent, they can also deliver a nasty bite. The burrows themselves can also be dangerous, as the tunnels are liable to collapse if placed under pressure, and can cause injuries if people step onto a burrow that collapses. This can happen on a larger scale in agricultural areas if a tractor drives onto an area where there is a large gopher burrow beneath the ground.

Can Gophers Become Pets?
One of the first things to point out is that keeping gophers after trapping them is illegal in many states, but there are some Colorado Springs raccoon removal situations in which gophers can become pets. They will only be kept by a small minority of people, and will often have been hand reared in a sanctuary if they have lost their mother. They are herbivores and will eat many different types of plants, but it is important not to overfeed them as they can easily grow obese in Colorado Springs bat removal captivity.

For prospective gopher owners that are considering adopting an animal as a pet, it is worth noting that they are natural burrowers, and will need to have some time in the garden where they can burrow. This means that fences dug deep into the ground may be required, especially if they are living in an outdoor enclosure. It is also worth bearing in mind that adopting a gopher can be a big undertaking, and they can often live up to eight years and more in Colorado Springs snake removal captivity. The majority of people will be put off keeping a gopher as a pet because of these problems, and if they are kept in a domestic situation they can also gnaw their way through many items of household furniture.

Dealing With A Gopher Problem
The reality is that many people will find having a gopher or a number of gophers living on their land or in a garden, and they will feel it is necessary to get rid of the animals. This is usually something that is best done by a Colorado Springs rodent extermination professional, because of the health and other Colorado Springs bird control problems associated with gophers.
