Is squirrel feces dangerous to touch or breathe? If you have squirrels that are living around your home, or who have found their way into your home, you know that they can be very dangerous to your health. These critters like to leave their waste around wherever they go, and if they have made your attic into their own home this can be very dangerous to you for sure.
Squirrels feces and urine can carry parasites and bacteria in it that makes these animals quite dangerous. They don't even need to be around anymore for you to be at risk. Many of the viruses that are found in their waste can survive up to 21-days outside the host, and the bacteria and parasites can survive even longer. This can mean that weeks or months after the feces was dropped you may still find that the diseases pose a risk to you. You simply cannot endanger yourself this way.
When cleaning up this mess many make the mistake of not properly protecting their skin and nasal passages when performing the cleanup. Many of the parasites are able to burrow into your skin and some will be stirred up into the air as you clean or vacuum. This can mean that you can actually inhale in the pathogens, putting your health at risk. This is something that you cannot afford to allow to have happen.
Many of these diseases are incredibly dangerous. You can get quite sick from them or even die if they are allowed to fester for long enough. This is why protecting yourself becomes a major concern.
If you are going to be cleaning up squirrel feces or urine then you need to make sure that you take proper precautions. This means that you need to have all your exposed skin covered at all times and the wearing of a surgical mask is essential. You simply cannot afford to take the risk of getting sick from having something crawl or burrow its way into you, or by breathing in the organisms so they can infect you.
Yes you want to get rid of this waste as soon as you have gotten rid of the squirrel, but you have to be smart about how you go about it. Protecting yourself is as essential to your well-being, as the actual cleanup of the squirrel matter itself. If you do not take precautions then you will find that your cleanup really did you no good at all, and that would be a real shame.
