What are the Dangers of a Rodent Infestation?
Why is it so important to be careful during the clean-up of a rodent infestation? Rodent-born infections have been responsible for at least 10 million fatalities since the dawn of the 20th century. Remember that rodent-borne diseases threatened all of humanity during the Black Death plague of the late Middle Ages. That plague, spread by fleas on rats, caused 200 million deaths in Europe alone.
Even today, rodents carry various diseases that are infectious to humans, including:
- Hantavirus: Originating from deer mice; causes flu symptoms and problems in the kidneys and lungs.
- Lyme disease: Spread by rodent ticks; symptoms include fevers and skin lesions.
- Salmonella: Borne from rodent excrement; affects the digestive system and is known to ruin 20 percent of the world’s annual food supply.
- Typhus: Spread by portside rodents and transmitted through flea bites; has been known to cause fever, rash and lung problems.
