Nuisance wildlife in your home can create problems many homeowners never think of. These animals can carry ectoparasites, which after the wildlife host is evicted, may move inside the home looking for a new host—including you! Bat bugs, mites, ticks, and fleas are just some of the ectoparasites you need to be concerned about. Mice in the walls, bats in the chimney, or various other visitors are notorious for bringing these animals in.
