Rats and Mice Transfer Diseases

Rat-RemovalRats and mice carry and pass on a number of harmful and sometimes deadly diseases. Both the droppings and the rodents themselves can be a major health hazard to humans.

Studies have shown that fleas were found in 100% of rats studied and harmful mites were found in 67% of rats. This shows that rats and mice pose a threat to our health and safety. Once rodents have been discovered in homes or business it is important to not only remove the rodent issue but to ensure that a clean up procedureĀ is undertaken in order to remove any bacteria or diseases that will be present in the droppings and living spaces that they have occupied.

In some cases it is prudent to use a broad spectrum biocide spray that will kill the bacteria before cleaning. Always ask your pest control company for best practice procedures.
