Remove Infected Rats and Mice from Your Humble TX Home or Business
Many fatal diseases can be transmitted to humans by rodents. Moreover, researchers at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland discovered that 95 percent of all residential dwellings contained mouse allergen in one or more rooms. The transmission of rodent born disease usually occurs indirectly, especially by breathing aerosolized rodent fecal droppings, urine and saliva. Among the diseases that can be transmitted to humans by rodents are dysentery, spotted fever, bubonic plague, meningitis, rabies and a respiratory disease known as Hantavirus.•Hantavirus pulmonary syndrome was first detected in the United States in 1993. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 136 of 380 of the people that are known to have been infected with the disease ultimately died. The disease is transmitted by the urine, droppings and saliva of infected mice.
•A disease called lymphocytic choriomengitis can be spread by house mice. The virus is carried by the urine of an infected mouse. An infected female mouse can also transmit the disease to its offspring. Much like Hantavirus, lymphocytic choriomengitis can be contracted by inhaling aerosolized rodent urine, feces or saliva. The disease can also be contracted through a small cut or open wound.
•Humans can be infected by tularemia by eating or drinking food or water that has been contaminated by an infected rodent. Humans can also be infected by infected ticks and insects.
•Many allergies are also caused by breathing or making contact with rodent droppings, urine, dander or saliva. Skin tests on asthmatic U.S. children living in large cities revealed that 18 percent of children living in major metropolitan areas were sensitive to mice and 20 percent were sensitive to rats. Study results confirmed that the children had been exposed to at least one rat or mouse allergen.
