A Rodent Infestation Can Be Hazardous to Your Health
Here are some health problems you may not be aware of that can become a problem when you have a rodent infestation.
Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome
You can get HPS (Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome) from a bite or from inhaling the feces or urine of rodents infected with HPS. The worst part is that if you come in contact with HPS, you can develop a life threatening infection. Knowing this should be enough of a reason to contact us at Control Exterminating Pest Control to eliminate your rodent problem.
Although other pests carry this same disease, the rodent is the one that is most commonly known to carry Leptospirosis. This disease can be contracting by simply coming into contact with a rodent that is infected or being bitten by one that is infected. Symptoms include vomiting, respiratory issues, diarrhea, jaundice and liver failure. Some people with underlying health issues have died from Leptospirosis.
Rat Bite Fever
Despite the name of this disease, you don’t necessarily get rat bite fever from just being bitten by a rat. You can develop it by being bitten by any other type of rodent. If you’ve developed rat bite fever, you will know because after a few days, you will develop a rash, fever, chills and muscle aches.
