Bacterial Diseases & Viruses 

Rats and mice carry several bacteria that can cause serious illnesses in humans. These illnesses include salmonellosis, leptospirosis, hantavirus pulmonary syndrome (HPS), toxoplasmosis, and even bubonic plague. All of these illnesses are spread through direct contact with rodent feces or urine. In addition, fleas that feed on rodents can spread other diseases such as typhus fever.  

Allergies & Asthma 

People who have allergies may experience an increase in their symptoms due to the presence of rats or pests in the area. This is because rodents shed fur which can contain allergens that trigger allergic reactions like sneezing or itching eyes. Additionally, the droppings from rodents also often contain allergens that can be inhaled and cause asthma attacks in people with asthma.  


Allergic reactions are not just limited to people; animals living in an area with rodent infestations may suffer from skin irritation or breathing difficulties due to increased allergens in the environment caused by rodents. 

Parasites & Insects 

In addition to bacterial diseases and allergens, rats and mice can also spread parasites like lice or fleas which may cause skin irritation or more serious infections like Lyme disease if left untreated. Rats can also bring insects into your home such as cockroaches which carry additional harmful bacteria that could be transferred onto food items if not removed promptly. 


To prevent these types of health issues it is important to get rid of any rat or pest infestation quickly so that the risk of illness is minimized for both humans and animals living in the area.

What Exactly Is A Termite? 

Termites are small, soft-bodied social insects that live in colonies in the soil, wood, and other cellulose-based materials. They feed on plants and woody material, causing significant damage to wooden structures both inside and outside buildings. Termite control is an important part of pest management programs for homes and businesses, so it’s important to have a regular termite inspection conducted to prevent major damage. 

How Long Will The Effects Of A Rodent Exclusion Treatment Last?

A rodent exclusion treatment typically involves a service to identify and remediate entryways that rodents use to get into your home, as well as physical rodent removal of any rodents already present. The effects of a rodent exclusion treatment can last for up to five years, depending on the quality and thoroughness of the work done by a professional rodent control service.
