As we have seen lately, an infection with Hantavirus happened in Yosemite National Park. That infection was cause by rodent droppings. Ten people have fallen ill and three have died.
Rodent dropping is not a laughing matter or something you should clean and forget. If you find droppings, most likely the animal that produced them is somewhere around and likely to return. Scurrying noises from the attic or when you enter your garage are a clear indication that rodents took residence in your home. Rodents can also cause significant damage to objects stored away by gnawing on fabrics and even electrical cables. If not enough, the nests and droppings of the rodents become a favorite breeding sites for insects which carry the diseases into you house.
What Can Rodent Droppings Cause
- Hantavirus – As was seen in Yosemite national Park case
- Bubonic Plague – Is not yet eradicated and spread by the bite of a rodent infected flea.
