Is Wild Animal Feces Dangerous to Touch or Breathe?

Pest animals inhabit the rural and urban area as well. Easy access to food, water, and a possibility of building a safe, nest far away from noise and disturbance seem very appealing to the Fayetteville animals. All they need to find or create if necessary is an entrance. After finding the entry point, females usually start building the nest for giving birth to their young. While nesting, everything is done in the same living area. Animals eat, poop, play and chew all in one place. That place can be transformed into a sewer-like area very quickly. By the time the living area is filled with animal pest feces, they are already discovered, trapped and killed or relocated. After the removal of all North Carolina nuisances, the place where they have lived needs to be cleaned up and thoroughly disinfected.

How dangerous are Fayetteville animal feces?
The pest droppings can be a potential source of some serious diseases, fatal to a human being. Therefore, cleaning after the animals needs to be performed with extreme caution and a thorough execution.

While removing what North Carolina animals have left behind, you need to be properly equipped:
• Rubber gloves
• Safety clothes
• Respiratory mask over your nose and mouth

For self-protection, you need to lower the health risk while handling with animals.
The North Carolina wildlife animal feces can be highly dangerous regarding the disease transmission. The diseases can be transmitted in two possible ways:
• Food or beverage contaminated with animal feces (salmonella, roundworm, e.colli)
• Inhaling the spores from the feces (airborne; Hantavirus, Leptospirosis, usually begin in a form of flu, but quickly evolve in a potentially dangerous disease).

Precaution measurements before dealing with the feces
You need to protect yourself during the process of cleaning any kind of animal feces. The right equipment includes:
• Mask for preventing the inhalation of spores from feces
• A pair of gloves
• A sealed bag or container
• Protective goggles
• Any cuts or small opened wounds need to be adequately covered while a physical contact can be fatal as well

After the precaution measurements have been carried out, cleaning can commence. The feces can be either picked and put in the container or cleaned it with a small trowel. Try to move the loose pieces first and only afterward clean the feces stuck on the ground. Contamination can be present in the area of insulation as well, that is why parts of insulation need to be cut off, and a new segment of insulation has tone inserted. Keep in mind that not only feces represent a potential health risk to a person but the Fayetteville animal´s urine as well. Make sure to ventilate the whole area abundantly after you perform the cleaning as a final act of the process.
