Are Rodent Infestations Dangerous?
Both rats and mice can pose various risks to your property and health, so addressing an infestation as quickly as possible is crucial.
Here are some of the main dangers associated with rodent infestations:
- Health Risks: Rodents can transmit diseases to humans through their urine, feces, and saliva. They are known carriers of dangerous illnesses such as leptospirosis and Hantavirus.
- Allergies and Asthma: Rodent droppings, urine, and dander can trigger allergic reactions and asthma attacks in sensitive individuals. Prolonged exposure to these allergens can lead to chronic respiratory issues.
- Property Damage: Rodents have strong teeth and can chew through otherwise durable materials, such as wood, insulation, electrical wires, and pipes. This can lead to structural damage, electrical fires, and water damage, all of which can be expensive to repair.
- Contamination: Rodents can contaminate food sources and surfaces. This poses a health risk and can spoil stored food, leading to waste and additional expenses.
- Reproduction: Rodents reproduce quickly, and a small infestation can rapidly grow out of control if not addressed promptly. The more rodents there are, the greater the potential for damage and the spread of disease.
It’s essential to address any signs of a rodent infestation as soon as possible and enlist the help of our team at Akela Pest Control to ensure the issue is dealt with quickly, effectively, and safely.
