Are Squirrel Droppings Dangerous?

Squirrels coexist peacefully with humans for the most part and rarely attack unless rabid or cornered. Many homeowners, however, don’t appreciate the risk involved with having squirrel feces and urine in your home. You don’t need to be attacked by the animal for it to be dangerous.

Squirrel droppings and urine harbour many potential diseases. The three common diseases you are likely to contract from contact with infected squirrel feces are Tularemia, Salmonellosis and Leptospirosis.

There are additional diseases that you may not get from the feces but are still a major concern any time squirrels or wildlife is present in your home. These are Lyme disease and Rabies. Read this infographic to learn about squirrel removal and how to deal with squirrel droppings.
