Here in Hawaii, there are a lot of animals that can invade our property. While homeowners in the rest of the country have a squirrel or occasional gopher to deal with, we have some scary animals that come into our yards, like feral pigs and feral cats. But we're going to focus on the animals that get into our houses, and explore a few reasons it can be dangerous to attempt to remove them on your own.

7 Reasons It Is A Bad Idea To Remove Wildlife On Your Own

  1. Let's cover the most obvious reason first, if you corner an animal or run into a mother protecting her young, you can get seriously hurt. Wild animals do not know that you are someone they can trust, and they may perceive your actions as a threat. It is important to understand that some animals can appear friendly at first, then lash out suddenly, especially if they are infected with the rabies virus.

  2. Professionals understand that animals, no matter how small, can be a serious threat, and they use appropriate protective gear when removing wildlife. A lack of this understanding, in and of itself, can be dangerous.

  3. Wildlife can carry diseases. If you find a safe way to remove the invading animal, you could end up with a secondary illness such as rabies, leptospirosis, hantavirus, and other human-spread pathogens.

  4. When animals get scared, they can do damage to themselves and to the belongings in your home.

  5. Wildlife sometimes brings other creatures in with them. If you are successful in getting the animal out of your home, you may leave a secondary threat, such as mites, lice, ticks, and fleas.

  6. Animals leave feces and urine in the places they travel. Once an animal is safely removed, areas of contamination should be properly dealt with, to prevent illness.

  7. Many animals that get into homes do so by exploiting an entry point. These entry points must be addressed to prevent ongoing infestations.
