All in all, they are hazardous pests. We at Inner West Exterminators provide high-quality rodent control solutions to commercial and residential clients.
Rats Create Many Problems
Once you notice a rat infestation on your property, you need to think of the following seriously:
- Diseases And Infections - Rat faeces is extremely hazardous for human beings. Inhaling the fumes or direct skin contact with rat faeces can expose you to various diseases such as Leptospirosis, Typhus, Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome, Eosinophilia Meningitis, and Murine. All of these are extremely dangerous to human health.
- Rat Bites - Rat bites are dangerous for anyone, including your pets. Rats can transmit bacteria called Streptobacillus moniliformis through their bite. Symptoms such as fever accompanied by arthritis-like pain and swelling may appear within 1-3 weeks of a rat bite. Delaying treatment can create complications like bronchopneumonia.
- Worms breeding in dead rats - can cause a severe brain infection called Eosinophilic Meningitis. Contact with rat faeces may result in leptospirosis, a bacterial disease affecting human beings as well as animals. There are many other diseases caused by the presence of rodents on your property.
- Fleas - You may not easily connect rats with fleas. But the bubonic plague is spread by fleas that feed on dead rats. The infected person succumbs to death in four days if not treated on time. This makes it critical that you get rid of fleas along with rats and their droppings.
