The Rodent Dilemma

When you see a furry rodent scurry across your kitchen, you first instinct might be to jump on a chair, or run from the room in panic. First off, it is okay to feel fear. The biggest dilemma with rodents is the diseases they transmit. Rodent bites are one conduit for infectious diseases. One of the main diseases that can be transmitted by rodent saliva is rat-bite fever. Rat-bite fever is caused by a bacterium that results in a fever, accompanied by a headache with vomiting and often a rash. Rat-bite fever can be transmitted through bites, scratches, or consuming food or water that has been contaminated by rodents.

If you thought that rat-bite fever was bad, there are a whole lot more rodent diseases that can be transmitted to you and your family. Take Hantavirus for instance, it is a virus that enters your lungs if you breathe in dust contaminated with mice urine or droppings. The virus enters your lungs and begins to grow. Fluid begins to fill your lungs. Hantavirus is definitely life threatening. Your health is in danger when your home is infested with rodents. According to the Center for Disease Control, rodents transmit numerous diseases through both, direct contact and indirect contact, such as parasites.
