Rodents May Carry a Variety of Diseases

Rodents May Carry a Variety of Diseases

Rats and mice are intelligent and resourceful. A total of 35 illnesses are transmitted by rats and mice over the world. As a direct result of the human encounters with rodents or their feces or urine, or as a result of being bitten by one, several illnesses may be transmitted to people. Ticks, mites, and fleas that have eaten on an infected rodent may carry disease to people indirectly.

The two key things that lure mice and rats to your home are food and shelter. If you do not properly clean up after yourself and leave food waste on the floor or other surfaces, rodents will go crazy for it!

Is my home rodent-infested?

While rodents are extremely smart, even the most cunning rats and mice leave unmistakable signs of their presence. Signs such as:

Feces and waste

If you have a major rodent problem, rats and mice may leave hundreds of small, tapered, dark brown pellets scattered throughout your home or business each night.

Grease marks

Throughout the day, the majority of rats have poor vision. They travel through houses by tracing the floors and walls. When they brush up against certain surfaces, they will eventually leave a grease mark.

Little toes crunching

Rats do not sleep twenty-four hours a day. You will ultimately hear them if they are in your house. Listen for distinct scratching or scrabbling sounds within walls and ceilings. Due to rats’ increased activity at night, you may hear them more frequently in the evening.

Bite marks

Is your phone charger in need of a fresh coat of paint? Is there food in the pantry that’s been nibbled at? It is possible that you have rodents gnawing on your stuff.

Why did rats choose to live in my house?

Rodents are drawn to any location that provides them with their primary needs: food, shelter, and water. That is what rats desire regardless of the season. The most often occurring of these drawings are as follows:

  • Easy-to-find warmth
  • Food spoilage
  • Leaks in the pipes
  • There is a lot of garbage and clutter

Was there a way for rodents to get in?

Some rodents can squeeze through holes and gaps that are less than an inch wide. This means that keeping them out is extremely tough and requires continual monitoring and hiring of professionals from Davao pest control. Insects can be kept at bay by securing the points of entrance. The following are the some entry points:

  • Doors
  • Roof splits
  • Vents Frames of windows
  • Small craters

Diseases carried by rodents

Rodents are known to have a broad variety of pathogens, such as bacteria, viruses, protozoa, and helminths, all of which can spread illness.

Several factors can lead to a person developing one of these diseases:

Excreta from rodents can be inhaled or ingested directly (urine, feces, saliva).
Exposure to infected rats through handling or direct contact.
An encounter with a rodent that results in an injury.
Relying on mouse waste or urine for food or drink.

What can I do to avoid having to deal with rodents in the future?

Several factors must be considered to avoid future rodent issues. To begin, identify the most likely entry points for intruders. Look for the above-mentioned entry spots around door and window frames, baseboards, utility lines, and any other cracks or holes you may see. Seal and secure these areas as much as possible.

Second, even if rodents manage to get access to your house, you should take steps to ensure that they are unable to obtain the items they desire. At all times, store pantry items in airtight, sealable plastic containers. Every night, carry your rubbish to the trash outside in sealable plastic bags. Repair and clean up any plumbing leaks as soon as possible. Keep your kitchen, bathrooms, closets, and basements free of waste by cleaning.

If you want to avoid further rodent problems, the best thing you can do is call Davao Pest Control right now. When you call us, we’ll be able to tell you exactly how the rats got into your house, remove them, and assist ensure that they don’t return in the future.
