We a complete job, from start to finish. We remove wildlife humanely and effectively, using the proper traps, tools, and techniques for each unique animal and situation.
When we encounter animals inside a house, we inspect every part of the house, from ground level to every part of the roof, to identify all the areas of entry, and all vulnerable
areas, and we perform professional repairs, with guarantee, to seal entry holes shut. We inspect inside the attic to find any damage or biohazard, and provide full cleaning services. We offer attic decontamination, poison-free and permanent rodent control,
bat colony exclusion, bird prevention, snake removal, dead animal removal and odor control, and more.

What is histoplasmosis?
Histoplasmosis is (usually) non fatal , non contagious fungal disease. Studies have found
it to be is the most common endemic fungal infection in North America. This infection is
caused by inhaling the fungus Histoplasma capsulatum attacks the lungs, bone marrow, gastrointestinal
tract, brain and adrenal glands. Each year this disease that affects the up to 250,000 people in the U.S. .
Histoplasmosis is found in the feces of bats and birds. It can also be found in decaying matter that contains these feces.
Abandoned structures where these creatures roost, chicken yards, and around shrubs and bushes.
It is transmitted by inhaling the fungus spores form these areas and can take anywhere from several days to two weeks to develop.
If you feel you may have been infected look for flu-like symptoms. Fever chills, muscle pain, dry or wet cough, headache and loss
of appetite. You may also experience stiffness of joints, confusion, or reddish painful patches on our skin at your elbows, shins or
back of the neck. Healthy people usually recover quickly with minimal or no symptoms.
Because it is not contagious, and symptoms vary, diagnosis is often unsure. If an unhealthy person is
suspected of having histoplasmosis, testing of phlegm or other bodily fluids might be ordered. This test
can take up to four weeks for the infection to “grow” in the sample. Another way to determine infection is a
chest x-ray . Unfortunately the x-ray will only show infection. I t can easily be mistaken for pneumonia, lung
cancer or tuberculosis. Because it normally goes away with no side effects treatment is not really necessary.
If your system is weakened by ill health the symptoms might linger and an anti fungal drug will help it go away.
In rare and severe cases where it has reached the blood stream it could find its way into the brain.
This requires immediate intravenous treatment.
Histoplasmosis is usually contracted by people who work or recreate around areas that birds and bats frequent.
Chicken farms, aviaries, park employees and bird enthusiasts to name a few. If you are in this high risk group
there are precautions you can take. There is the obvious solution - avoid areas you feel could be contaminated.
If avoidance is not possible, wear a face mask when around the matter. If gardening or handling waste, wet the
area down first to settle the dust. Be sure to always wash hands and exposed area after coming in contact with any
questionable matter and remove contaminated clothes as soon as possible.
