If you have had a wild New York animal invasion in your attic, no matter what the animal, you
will have a mess to clean up. Even if a single Westchester animal took up residence within your attic
for any amount of time, it will have left animal waste around the area it inhabited. Animal
waste can be dangerous as certain diseases can be passed on to humans through direct or
indirect contact with the feces of animals. Therefore, wild animal waste will need to be
removed quickly for the safety of you, your family and your pets. There are proper steps
for doing this.
After you remove Westchester wildlife from the attic successfully, there is a lot of waste that needs to be handled, and this includes parasites like mites and fleas, nesting materials, body hairs, droppings, urine and even food debris.
