Rodents are some of the most prolific pests in the world. They also carry a wide range of diseases, most of which can, and have, been spread to humans.
Rodents come in many forms. Most people think of mice and rats as rodents, but we often have a wider definition of the creatures. Squirrels, bats, opossum, and raccoons all can work their ways into your home, and they all bring health problems with them.
Rodents and small mammals will make their nests in your home, whether it is in the attic, walls, or basement. They reproduce in these places. They also leave feces and urine behind to soak through your ceilings and walls. Rodents have fleas, ticks, mites, and internal parasites that can infest your home, as well.
Some of the diseases and illnesses that mice, rats, bats, squirrels, and other mammals carry are hantavirus, Lassa fever, rat-bite fever, salmonella, tularemia, and several hemorrhagic fevers. And yes, they do still carry the plague. It’s just that pets and wild animals are the most commonly affected in the U.S., rather than people.
Signs Of Mice & Other Rodents
The most common sign of mice is finding their droppings on the floor, in drawers, in appliances, and in cabinets. Their feces are about the size of a grain of rice- they are black in color, and are rod shaped with pointed ends. Other signs of mice in your house are finding chew or gnaw marks on things like boxes, food containers, furniture, clothing and rugs. You may also notice a musty smell in your home and may hear them scurrying behind your home’s walls or above the ceilings at night.
