We solve your rodent problem forever, by following these steps:
- Inspect the entire house, ground to roof, and the attic
- Seal shut all entry areas, no matter how small, with steel
- Set a dozen or more rat or mouse traps in the house and attic
- Remove all rodents as they are caught and monitor for activity
- Once there is no more activity and no more caught, we're done
- When necessary, we clean rodent droppings, replace insulation, and repair chewed electric wires
Lakeland Rodent Removal Tip:
What Are Possible Diseases Rats Can Carry?
Commonly known as the reason that the Bubonic Plague spread, rats have often been considered to be the most disease-ridden animals on Earth. While there might be a little bit of exaggeration, rats really do carry many different diseases that can be potentially deadly to humans. Continue reading this article to find out more about the multitudes of different diseases rats can carry.
Rat-bite fever is a very serious illness that is carried by many rats throughout the world. There are a few different ways that humans can contract rat-bite fever from rodents. A direct bite or scratch from an infected rodent is the easiest way to get the disease. Another common way to contract it is from eating or drinking anything that is contaminated by the infected rat's saliva, droppings, or urine. The signs and symptoms of rat-bite fever are very similar to many other common infections and viruses, so if you come into contact with any rodents, it wouldn't hurt to have tests done. Some common symptoms are headaches, vomiting, fevers, muscle and joint pain, and rashes. If not treated quickly, about 1 in 10 people who get rat-bite fever die. It is important to get tested and begin treatment as soon as possible, as antibiotics are very effective at curing this disease.
Another commonly carried disease by rats and other rodents would be hantavirus. Hantavirus that is found in North America is generally spread by an aerosol form of the virus that can be transmitted through saliva, feces, and urine. Any human that comes into contact with saliva, feces, or urine can contract the illness. Though it occurs less frequently, being bitten by an infected rat or mouse can also spread the virus. Some of the early symptoms to look out for are muscle aches, fever, fatigue, headaches, chills, and abdominal problems. Eventually, these can lead to tightening of the chest, coughing, and running out of breath. In 40% of cases, hantavirus has proven fatal. There are no cures for this virus, but getting early treatment will help you be more likely to come out of the illness unscathed, as oxygen treatments will help you through the worst part of the virus.
Leptospirosis is a nasty disease that causes a wide variety of symptoms and sometimes will cause no symptoms at all. This bacterial infection is spread by a wide variety of animals, especially rats and other small critters, through the urine of any infected creatures. All a human has to do is come into contact with any urine or anywhere the urine has been in contact with to contract the disease. Some common symptoms are fevers, aches, and chills, headaches, vomiting, jaundice, or red eyes. If left untreated, this could take several months to recover completely. Luckily, leptospirosis is generally responsive to antibiotics, so it is important to see healthcare professionals immediately upon symptoms.
Tularemia is a disease that is carried by many different animals, from rats to prairie dogs, and these critters are mainly infected by bites from ticks. This disease can be transmitted to humans through bites, handling any infected animals, and by coming into contact with contaminated water. Symptoms vary wildly from case to case and can range from very mild to potentially fatal. Some symptoms are fever, skin ulcers, swelling of lymph nodes, sore throat, mouth ulcers, chest pains, coughing, and many, many more. Since tularemia is rare, it can be hard to diagnose. Most patients completely recover if they get treatment as soon as they can.
As can be seen, rats carry all kinds of nasty diseases that can be fatal to humans. If you ever come into contact with a rodent and think you could have contracted an illness, it is important to get tested immediately. This can potentially save your life.
