Rodents are not only a nuisance, they also bring a variety of health risks if you leave them to breed in your property. Rats and mice alone bring and are capable of spreading as many as 35 diseases. These animals infect people directly through handling of carcasses, feces, urine or saliva, and bites.
Hantavirus infection happens in a variety of ways, but rodent infestation is the primary cause. When you stir up fresh rodent feces, urine or nesting materials, the virus becomes airborne. Once in the air, humans inhale it, increasing the risk of acquiring the disease. A rat or mouse bite may also transmit the disease. Consuming food or liquids that contain urine, droppings or saliva of an infected rat may also cause the ailment.
Symptoms of this disease normally develop between one and five weeks after exposure to contaminants. Hantavirus infection may progress to Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome, a potentially fatal respiratory ailment.
Lymphocytic Choriomeningitis (LCM)
The common house mouse is the primary host of the lymphocytic choriomeningitis virus that causes the disease. Infection occurs upon exposure to urine, droppings, saliva or nesting materials of rodents. The spread of the disease is likely to happen during winter because mice seek warm habitats.
Rodents transmit leptospirosis through exposure to fresh urine and feces. You may contract the disease by eating or drinking contaminated food and water. Direct contact with the skin or mucous membranes with contaminated soil or water may also cause the ailment.
Rodents are carriers of bacteria, germs and viruses that may cause these diseases, if left alone. With the help of pest control services from Yes Pest Pros, you get rid of these disease-causing critters.
